Use and retrieval of Information
RAUS solely owns the information contained on and collected from this site. RAUS retains the right to share information with known and trusted third-parties that provide services by contract for RAUS and RAUS’ members.

Information is collected on RAUS's Web site from its membership to fulfill requests including, but not limited to, the ordering of RAUS’ publications and the request for RAUS’ assistance. RAUS agrees not to sell or share this information (or rent this information) to others in any way except as is disclosed in this Privacy Policy Statement.

The email addresses of RAUS’ members and others who subscribe to our email newsletters RAUS will not sell or rent to anyone, including business partners, advertisers, and providers of insurance or other member benefits.

RAUS members who change or provide their email address via RAUS's "Contact Us" will automatically be subscribed to RAUS email newsletters. Upon receipt of the email newsletters, the user may decide to opt-out of the email distribution list by following the instructions at the bottom of the email message.

Members may call the RAUS Headquarters at 615-794-4400 to have their names removed from RAUS' email address list, and thereafter will receive no email communications from RAUS.

Credit Card Information
RAUS does not digitally collect, share or store credit or debit card information. Each time a member uses their credit or debit card on the RAUS Web site, the information must be keyed in to the Web site by the member for that specific purpose, and, once the transaction is complete, the information will not be retained digitally by RAUS.

Guest Registration
RAUS web-site users that are not members of RAUS may be requested by RAUS to fill in its Guest Book or Contact Us page to obtain access to certain restricted areas of the site. RAUS web-site users may also fill in the Guest Book or Contact Us page voluntarily and independent of gaining access to restricted areas of the site. Persons who submit a Guest Book or Contact Us entry may be solicited for RAUS’ membership.

Contests, Give-A-Ways, & Surveys
RAUS may offer contests, surveys and/or promotional give-a-ways at various times. Your participation is voluntary. The participant may choose to disclose such information as his/her contact and demographic information, or not. Information collected may be used to contact the participants for notification of prizes that are awarded or for sending the participant a request to become a member of RAUS.

Recommending RAUS and its web-site to a friend and Emailing this information to a friend.
If a participant decides to use RAUS's "Recommend this Site to a Friend" or "Email this Article to a Friend" features, RAUS will ask for the participant's Email address and the friend's Email address. RAUS will then send the friend an Email inviting them to visit the RAUS web-site. RAUS retains this information for the sole purpose of sending this Email on one occasion.

Cookies are bits of data/information that sites transfer to hard drives for the purpose of maintaining records. Using “cookies” is standard in the web-site maintenance and development business.

When one logs in as a member or a guest, RAUS will set a “cookie” on the participant’s computer equipment. This information identifies the participant as a member or guest, as applicable. The “cookie: facilitates the access for the participant to areas of the site otherwise restricted and it pre-populates information on RAUS’ forms so the participant will not be required to re-key the data, and the “cookie” delivers RAUS’ content and images. The cookie is set for a 6-month period after which the cookie expires and you must identify yourself as a member or a guest through our sign in forms.

Most browsers are set up to allow the receipt of cookies, but the participant may reset his/her browser to not allow all cookies or to inform when a cookie has been or is being sent. Be aware that some sections of RAUS' web-site will not perform correctly unless the participant allows the use of cookies.

Policy Modifications
This Policy will require changes from time to time due to additions and changes to the website. This Policy is subject to change without notice.
