Deletion of Information

You assume this risk by voluntarily providing your information to AC, with the understanding that such hacking incidents can occur despite reasonable security measures being in place.
We do not automatically renew any membership, and there is no need to cancel your membership to ensure you will not be charged again. When your membership is about to expire, you will receive email notifications and can decide if, and how, you wish to pay to renew your membership.
