AFI maintains a membership database with the e-mail address, name, postal address, telephone number and other personally identifiable information of persons who have provided such information to AFI by mail, telephone or e-mail in connection with their membership applications.

As with any on-line interaction and electronic communication, there is an inherent risk involved in transmitting any information via the Internet. AFI does not and cannot guarantee that its system is free from hackers or viruses or that information provided by users to AFI has not been stolen or otherwise surreptitiously obtained. You hereby acknowledge and understand that such risk is inherent in interacting with any website, including this website, and take full responsibility for any harm, danger or damage that ensues due to any such breach in security, and AFI expressly disclaims any liability in connection with such harm, danger or damage.
