General privacy practices for AAA Washington


AAA Washington and its affiliates respect your privacy. We want to assure you that safeguarding information about you is important to us. We gather information about you to conduct business on your behalf, provide superior service, and communicate offers on products and services that we believe will be of interest or benefit to you.

This Privacy Notice describes how we handle your personal information as a motor club and the steps taken to protect your privacy. A separate privacy notice would apply to information collected through affiliate partner products and services.  You should consult those notices if you are dealing with such products or services.

Information We Collect.  We collect information about you to offer AAA member benefits as listed in the membership guide. This includes information that you provide directly, such as your contact information; that you provide indirectly, such as when you call us for services; and that we collect from third parties.

We also collect information about your transactions and experiences with us, affiliate partners, and other clubs/entities within the AAA federation. This includes, for example, information when you:

·       request roadside assistance

·       purchase travel from us or a partner

·       use automotive services

·       use member services

·       inquire about or acquire insurance products

Information We Use and Share. We may share your information with affiliates and third parties to provide membership services, and for marketing purposes, including joint marketing with other companies with whom we have joint marketing agreements. We may also provide your information to service providers and business partners, as permitted or required by law, including for our everyday purposes such as processing your transactions, maintaining your accounts, responding to legal orders, and preventing fraud. We may also provide your transaction and experience information to our affiliates for their everyday business purposes.

We may use your service location to identify your location to provide roadside assistance and for: (i) internal analytics, including mileage calculations, (ii) quality-assurance initiatives and member surveys; (iii) approved auto repair facilities when a referral is requested; (iv) requesting assistance from emergency providers; and (v) rental car providers if a referral is requested. We may share your service location with our authorized independent service providers, AAA personnel, authorized contractors, and our affiliates.

We may use the email address on your account to contact you about our products/services. To opt-out of emails, click on “Manage email preferences” in any marketing email received. You will continue to receive transactional emails directly related to your membership, such as renewal notices.

If opted in to SMS, we may send you transactional membership alerts. To opt-out of SMS messages, text "STOP" and we will send you a reply text message to confirm that you have been unsubscribed.

Information Protection. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. We require employees, vendors, and parties that we share data with to keep your personally identifiable information (PII) confidential. Access to such information is provided to those who need it to perform their everyday duties. We review the information security practices of third parties with whom we share your personal information.
