Privacy Policy for the Disneyland Alumni Club Web Site

This policy applies to our guests visiting the Disneyland Alumni Club Web site at www.disneylandalumniclub.org. It is effective March 1, 2014.  It applies only to information collected through this web site, and not on other sites that may be linked to this site.

Collection and Use of Information

We only collect personally identifiable information if you choose to register with us, or if you make a purchase through the merchandise portion of our site. By going through our registration process and creating a password, you gain access to information only available to registered users. Your registration information is used by us to authenticate you. And to keep track of your membership and related membership information. Registration information will not be used for any other commercial purpose, nor will it be shared with any third parties, including but not limited to the Walt Disney Family of Companies, without your prior consent. Occasionally, our guests may receive non-commercial emails from us regarding the information available here or elsewhere as we may select. Except for information shared during the registration process, no other personal information is collected from our guests.

The Disneyland Alumni Club may collect and use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • To improve customer service:  Information you provide helps us respond to your requests and support needs more efficiently.
  • To personalize user experience:  We may use information in the aggregate to understand how our users as a group use the services and resources provided on our site.
  • To improve our site:  We may use feedback you provide to improve our products and services.
  • To process payments:  We may use the information you provide when placing an order only to provide service to that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to provide the service.
  • To run a promotion, contest, survey or other site feature:  To send you information you agreed to receive about topics we think will be of interest to you.
  • To send periodic emails:  We may use the email address to send you information and updates pertaining to their order. It may also be used to respond to their inquiries, questions, and/or other requests. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email or you may contact us via our site.

Certain non-personal information is collected by our servers when you interact with the site, such as type of browser or operating system being used, what pages you look at on our site, and information regarding our guests' Internet service providers. This anonymous information allows for the optimization of our site's pages for each guest; no personal information is collected from you as part of this process.  We also gather anonymous information about other uses of this site used to make improvements.

“Opt In” Choices

When you register, you have general “opt in” choices to make. These opt-in choices are how you give us consent to use your personal information. If you make no choice at all, then we consider that you “opt out” and we will not share your information, use it for commercial purposes or share it with third parties.  This may affect your experience on this site.  For example, if you want us to announce a special anniversary date in our newsletter, but do not give us permission to share that information, we will not announce your anniversary date.  At registration, we will give you the opportunity to “opt in” to allow us to share your information with the Walt Disney Family of Companies. Separately, we will also give you a chance to “opt in” to share your information with other third parties. You can make your “opt in” choices during the registration process, and change them after registration, by going to your member page and following the directions. If you decide not to “opt in” at our web site, you can still go to the third party web site and share your information independently, but you may miss some benefits that happen because we share your information with that third party. For example, if we offer special event tickets that require us to pass your information to Disney, unless you “opt in” we won’t be able to get the tickets for you. “Opt In” will never be retroactively applied.

Cookies and Web Beacons
