Welcome

This website is owned and maintained by AAA Hudson Valley (“AAAHV”) for your personal and private use. Your use of AAAHV's website or use of any of its enhanced features is subject to the following Terms and Conditions of Use (“Terms of Use”), as well as all applicable laws. Please review these Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy carefully.

When you visit and use the AAAHV website, you accept the Terms of Use without limitation or qualification. These Terms of Use constitute an agreement between you and AAAHV, and are in addition to any other agreements between you and AAAHV. AAAHV may at any time revise the Terms of Use without notice by updating this Terms of Use page. Changes to the Terms of Use take effect when posted to the website. You are bound by such revisions and should therefore visit this page to review the current Terms of Use carefully each time you visit the AAAHV site.

AAAHVHV reserves the right, without notice and for any reason, to modify or remove any content on this website, and to deny access of any user or users to all or any part of this website. If AAAHV does terminate your right to use this website, than you are no longer authorized to access or use any of the benefits of this website. In addition, the restrictions imposed upon you concerning copying or downloading information, and the disclaimers and limitations on liability contained in the Terms of Use will survive the termination of your right to use this website.

If you do not wish to be bound by the Terms of Use, please discontinue using and accessing the website immediately.

"Remember My Login" Use of Cookies

What is a cookie?

Cookies are pieces of information sent by a web server and stored on your computer for future reference. They contain information about how you are using a website and can track your movements through it. AAAHV uses two types of cookies:

  1. Session cookies which only last while you are on that particular website; and
  2. Persistent cookies, which are written on to your hard drive and can remain there permanently or until they reach their pre-assigned expiry date.

How does AAA use persistent cookies?

AAAHV’s primary use of cookies is to make our website easier for you to use. Upon detection, your cookie entitles you access to virtually all of the Member or Guest areas on the site. With a cookie, registered users do not have to log in with one exception; a user doing an on line transaction will be requested to log in. This allows AAAHV to know who within a family is doing the transaction.  

AAAHV also uses cookies to track website visits, transmit potentially useful information, and personalize your future visits to the website. AAAHV’s cookies do not capture your individual email address or any private information about you. However, AAAHV may use the information provided on a consolidated basis for statistical and survey purposes and to improve the user friendliness of AAAHV’s website.     

AAAHV may also use persistent cookies to remember what information has been presented to you, so that you don't see it again. For example, if AAAHV has to communicate information to you through a pop-up message or temporary message, a persistent cookie will make sure that you only have to see the information once, rather than having to see it every time you visit our website.

What cookies cannot do
Cookies cannot read your hard drive or access files and information stored on your computer. They cannot reveal anything about you that you have not chosen to enter as a user on the site. We will not store any personal information such as your name, address or social security number

Do I have to accept cookies?
If you are concerned about accepting cookies, you can set your browser to not accept cookies or to warn you when you are about to receive one, and you can then choose whether to accept it or not. If you choose not to accept cookies, you may not be able to access some pages on our website and others may not function at optimum efficiency

Any failure by AAAHV to enforce any of its rights under the Terms of Use or applicable laws shall not constitute a waiver of such right.
