Information we collect and how we collect it
We collect and maintain personal information about you from many sources to understand and meet your needs, manage the Program, and for other purposes disclosed to you. For example, we collect personal information about you from:
You, when you voluntarily provide us with information
Your transactions with American, including through your AAdvantage® account
Payment card networks and/or issuing banks for one or more of your payment cards, subject to you granting consent for any applicable payment card to be linked to the Program
Other third-party sources, such as Participating Merchants.
If the information is to be collected directly from you, you may in some cases have the option to decline providing that information. However, your choice to not provide information may impact your use of certain features or services of the Program.
The personal information we collect about you through these various sources may include, but is not limited to:
Name, addresses and telephone numbers
Date of birth and gender
AAdvantage® account number
Credit card number(s), which will be used by the applicable payment network
Information related to your transactions with Participating Merchants using the credit card number(s) you provided
Technical information such as your browser type, IP address, type of operating system you use, your geolocation, the name of your internet service provider, mobile advertising identifiers, and pages visited on our site
Information provided via survey, focus group or other marketing research efforts
When you send us an email or online customer service request, we will retain the content of the message, your email address or any contact information you provide, and our response in order to handle any follow-up questions you may have. We also use this information to measure how effectively we address your concerns.
Any other information that you choose to provide to us or that is required to facilitate your transactions and awards.
Your information may be combined with information we may already have about you.
Any of the information that we collect through your AAdvantage® account, including your name and email, can only be updated through your AAdvantage® account settings, and not directly via the Program.
Automatically collected information (including cookies and geolocation)
When you use the Program, we may receive technical information such as your browser type, the type of operating system you use, your geolocation, the name of your internet service provider, mobile advertising identifiers, and pages visited on our site. American gets this information by using technologies, including cookies, web beacons, and mobile device geolocation to provide and improve the Program and advertising, including across browsers and devices (also known as cross-device linking). We also use this information to verify that visitors meet the criteria required to process their requests and for reporting activity in connection with the Program. For example, we may want to know how long the average user spends on our site or which pages or features get the most attention. This technical information may be combined with information that is personally identifiable in order to personalize the Program and advertising to your interests, including across browsers and devices. Some of this information may be shared with third parties, as described below under “Information collected by third parties in connection with the Program.”
Additionally, and with your specific consent where required by law, American may combine the information we receive from you with information collected from other sources. This information may be used to provide offers and/or services specifically tailored to your interests in accordance with applicable laws.
Cookies used in connection with the Program
The Program also may occasionally use “local shared objects” (also known as “Flash cookies”). Like browser cookies, Flash cookies may be used for coordinating content delivery, website functionality, maintaining preferences, advertising, or analytics. Unlike browser cookies, “Flash cookies” are not stored in the browser. You may be able to manage these Flash cookies by viewing the Adobe website.
There are four types of cookies used in connection with the Program:
Essential cookies – These cookies enable you to use the Program. These cookies are essential to enable you to browse our site and use certain features. Disabling them may prevent you from using certain parts of the site. These cookies also help keep our site safe and secure.
Preference cookies – These cookies store information such as your preferred country and language selection, AAdvantage® login data and website preferences. Without these cookies, the Program may not be able to remember certain choices you’ve previously made (such as a saved country / language preference) or personalize your browsing experience by providing you with relevant information (such as AAdvantage® award miles balance). These cookies can also be used to recognize your device so that you do not have to provide the same information more than once.
Performance cookies – These cookies collect information about how you use the Program such as which pages you visit regularly. These cookies are used to provide you with a high-quality experience by doing things such as tracking page load, site response times, and error messages.
Content / advertising cookies – These cookies gather information about your use of the Program so we may improve your experience and provide you with more relevant content and advertising. They are also used to gather feedback on customer satisfaction through surveys. They remember that you’ve visited our site and help us understand usage of the Program. Some of these cookies are from third parties that collect information about users of the Program (as described below under “Information collected by third parties in connection with the Program”) in order to provide advertising (on our site and elsewhere) based on users’ online activities (so-called “interest-based advertising”) on our site and elsewhere online. The third parties involved in interest-based advertising collect internet browsing information (e.g., websites visited, time of visit) across different websites and over time, and they may use the information they collect on our site to provide you ads (from us and other companies) across the internet.
Information collected by third parties in connection with the Program
For example, social network or other third-party plug-ins (such as Facebook’s “Like” button) may be provided with the Program in order to enable you to login to the Program, to comment on content available on the Program, and to share things you find through the Program with your social network. The providers of these plug-ins may be able to collect information about you even if you do not click on or otherwise interact with the plug-in or widget and regardless of whether you have an account or other relationship with these social networks and third parties. If you use social network tools or visit social networking sites, you should read their privacy disclosures to learn what information they collect, use, and share.
Also, some third parties collect information about users of the Program in order to provide interest-based advertising (on the Program and elsewhere, including across browsers and devices, also known as cross-device linking). This may include anonymized or de-identified information about you. These third parties may use the information they collect through the Program to make predictions about your interests in order to provide you ads (from us and other companies) across the internet (for example, products and services that are available at a merchant you searched for online).
We may use Adobe Analytics to aggregate and analyze data about your use of the Program.
Obtaining your consent
How your information will be used
We use personal information to complete transactions and fulfill requests for the Program. For example, your information may be used to identify transactions eligible for awards, to allocate awards to the appropriate account, or to send you offers for awards. In addition, we may use personal information for administrative, analytical, and marketing purposes such as employee training, information systems management, accounting, billing and audits, credit card processing and verification, customer-relations correspondence, operation of the Program, to prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities, or otherwise as disclosed to you at the time your personal information is collected or pursuant to your consent. Where we are required by applicable law, we will seek your consent prior to sending you communications for marketing purposes. More specifically, we may use your personal information for the following purposes:
Business purposes and communication: To information you requested, to communicate with you for business or customer service reasons, or for other such reasons such as changes to our policies or in response to your inquiry
Financials transaction management: To facilitate payment for services or provide refunds

We take reasonable measures to protect the personal information you provide under the Program. Please note, however, that while we attempt to safeguard your personal information, no method of transmitting or storing electronic information is ever completely secure.
With whom your information will be shared
American may share information about you with Participating Merchants, as necessary or appropriate to fulfill the terms of the Program. For example, if you are enrolled in a promotion involving a Participating Merchant, we may share your information with the Participating Merchant as needed for accounting, billing, customer relations, operation of the Program, or to prevent fraud or potentially prohibited or illegal activities.
We may also disclose information to companies affiliated with American, our service providers, and/or unaffiliated third parties (i) to provide the Program and (ii) for administrative, analytical, and marketing purposes. Where required by applicable law, we will seek your consent prior to sharing your personal information with such third parties for marketing purposes. Also, as described below, you can opt out of having your information shared with such third parties for those parties’ direct marketing purposes by emailing us at email@example.com.
In the event we undergo a business transition involving another company, such as a merger, corporate reorganization, acquisition, the lease or sale of all or a portion of our assets, or in the event of bankruptcy, information that we have collected from or about you or your devices may be disclosed to such other entity as part of the due diligence or business integration process and will be transferred to such entity as one of the transferred assets.
Further, to the extent required by law, we may disclose personal information to government authorities, or to third parties pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process, and we may also use or disclose your information as permitted by law to protect the rights or property of American, our customers, our services, or its users.
If you do not agree to all of the Terms, then do not enroll in the SimplyMiles Program or use the Services. Participation in the SimplyMiles Program is at the discretion of American, and American may change the SimplyMiles Program rules, regulations, earnings, benefits, mechanics, and any special offers (collectively, “Program Rules”) at any time in its sole discretion with or without notice. American may, among other things, (i) change AAdvantage® program benefits, participant affiliations, conditions of participation, or rules for earning AAdvantage®® miles or (ii) rename or redefine AAdvantage® program elements or benefits. Participating Merchants, Offers and Qualifying Transactions (each as defined below) are subject to change with or without notice. American reserves the right to end the SimplyMiles Program and/or remove any Participating Merchants from the SimplyMiles Program at any time in its sole discretion with or without notice. The SimplyMiles Program, AAdvantage® mile accrual, and any special offers are subject to government regulations.
You are responsible for reading these Terms, the applicable terms and conditions for each Participating Merchant, and additional member information regarding the AAdvantage® program (which is available online at aa.com/AAdvantage®) in order to understand your rights and responsibilities under the SimplyMiles Program. American may amend the Program Rules at any time in its sole discretion with or without notice. American has no liability for correspondence that is misdirected, lost, stolen, damaged or delayed.
Any AAdvantage® miles earned through the SimplyMiles program are subject to the AAdvantage® program terms and conditions. For complete details about the AAdvantage® program, visit aa.com/AAdvantage®.
The terms and conditions for our Participating Merchants can be found here.
Fraud, misrepresentation, abuse or violation of any applicable rules (including, but not limited to, the Program Rules) is subject to administrative and/or legal action by appropriate governmental authorities and American. Such action may include, without limitation, the forfeiture of certain or all AAdvantage® miles earned under the SimplyMiles Program, as well as prohibition of your future participation in the SimplyMiles Program and/or the AAdvantage® program as a whole. In addition, American reserves the right to take any appropriate legal action to recover damages and other remedies, including its attorneys’ fees incurred in prosecuting any lawsuit against you.
American reserves the right to audit any and all accounts at any time in its sole discretion, with or without notice to you, to ensure compliance with the Program Rules. In the event that an audit reveals discrepancies or violations, the processing of SimplyMiles Program rewards, AAdvantage® mile accrual and summaries may be delayed until the discrepancies or violations are resolved in a manner satisfactory to American.
If American and/or any Participating Merchant improperly denies you AAdvantage® mile credit or some other benefit, your exclusive remedy shall be the issuance of the improperly denied AAdvantage® mile credit, or such other alternative comparable benefit as determined by American in its sole discretion. American shall have no additional liability whatsoever. In no event shall American or any Participating Merchant be liable to any member, or anyone claiming through a member, for any direct, indirect, consequential or special damages, or any penalties, lost revenue or profits, arising out of the acts or omissions of American or any Participating Merchant in connection with the SimplyMiles Program.
American is not responsible for and will have no liability arising from products or services offered by any Participating Merchant or any action taken by any Participating Merchant, except as set forth in these Terms.
Accumulation of AAdvantage® miles as a result of Qualifying Transactions with Participating Merchants is subject to the continued participation of such Participating Merchant in the SimplyMiles Program, which may cease at any time with or without notice.

To ensure you receive credit for your SimplyMiles transactions, please retain all receipts until the mileage credit appears on your SimplyMiles Program earnings summary.
Only registered members of the SimplyMiles Program will be eligible to earn AAdvantage® miles through the SimplyMiles Program.
Each Participating Merchant will designate an activity that a SimplyMiles Program member needs to take with such Participating Merchant in order to receive AAdvantage® miles in connection with this program (a “Qualifying Transaction”). AAdvantage® miles may be awarded to SimplyMiles Program members for Qualifying Transactions in accordance with any Participating Merchant terms and conditions for each such Participating Merchant or other applicable rules of such Participating Merchant.
AAdvantage® miles will be credited only to the account of the SimplyMiles Program member who makes a Qualifying Transaction with a Participating Merchant. In accordance with the terms and conditions of each Participating Merchant or other applicable rules of such Participating Merchant, no AAdvantage® miles will be awarded for returned products or certain cancelled services.
You may request AAdvantage® mile credits for past Qualifying Transactions up to twelve (12) months from the transaction date. Qualifying Transactions occurring prior to your SimplyMiles Program registration date are not eligible for earning miles under the SimplyMiles Program.
You are responsible for ensuring that your mileage earned is properly credited. If you believe that mileage has been earned but not properly credited, you may be required to submit documentation or other proof satisfactory to American, which may include copies of itemized receipts.

Your account information is owned by and proprietary to American. While you may access your account information through the Services, you may not give access to your account to any person or entity other than a member of your household or a person that you directly supervise as part of your career or employment.

YOU USE THE SERVICES AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE CONTENT IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF EXPECTATION OF PRIVACY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT OR TITLE. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL AMERICAN OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES (WHETHER CONSEQUENTIAL, DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL OR OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF, OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH, THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES OR FOR ANY OF THE CONTENT OBTAINED THROUGH OR OTHERWISE IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES, IN EACH CASE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARE BASED ON CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, TORT OR OTHER THEORIES OF LIABILITY, AND ALSO REGARDLESS OF WHETHER AMERICAN WAS GIVEN ACTUAL OR CONSTRUCTIVE NOTICE THAT DAMAGES WERE POSSIBLE.
American neither warrants nor represents that your use of Content on the Services will not infringe upon the intellectual property rights of third parties. American shall not be liable for any virus or other damage to your computer equipment or other property due to your accessing, browsing, or using the Services or due to your downloading any audio, data, images, materials, pictures, text or video from the Services. Because American provides services and products in many parts of the world, the Services may refer to certain goods, products, and/or services that are not available in your area. A reference to goods, products, and/or services without limiting their geographic scope does not imply that American offers or intends to offer those goods, products, and/or services in all locations.
For use of certain services, American may provide you with a pass code. This pass code is proprietary to and the property of American. However, you must take precautions to insure the security of your pass code. American assumes no responsibility for and will not be liable in the event that another person learns your pass code or uses your pass code to cause damage to you. While American takes reasonable steps to safeguard and to prevent unauthorized access to your private information, American cannot be responsible for the acts of those who gain unauthorized access, and American makes no warranty, express, implied, or otherwise, that American will prevent unauthorized access to your private information.
IN NO EVENT SHALL AMERICAN OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES (WHETHER CONSEQUENTIAL, DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL OR OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF, OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH, A THIRD PARTY’S UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARE BASED ON CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, TORT OR OTHER THEORIES OF LIABILITY, AND ALSO REGARDLESS OF WHETHER AMERICAN WAS GIVEN ACTUAL OR CONSTRUCTIVE NOTICE THAT DAMAGES WERE POSSIBLE.
The information on the Services does not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities and must not be relied upon in connection with any investment decision.
The Services may provide hyperlinks or references to other sites. While American endeavors to provide links only to sites that are reputable and safe, American takes no responsibility for the information, products, or services obtained on such other sites and will not be liable for any damages arising from your access to such sites. American provides any such links to other sites merely for your convenience and our inclusion of such links and frames in the Services does not imply an endorsement of the linked or framed sites, their content, or the persons or entities operating those sites. Therefore, you assume sole responsibility for using links or pointers to third parties.
American specifically denies you permission to hyperlink or provide references to the Services, unless you are allowed to do so under a separate written agreement with American. You are also denied permission to use any trademarked or copyrighted material to provide such hyperlinks or references, unless you are allowed to do so under a separate written agreement with American. American bears no responsibility for sites that provide hyperlinks or references to the Services unless those sites are operated by American.
American does not accept or consider unsolicited proposals related to its business, including but not limited to proposals for advertising campaigns, logos, names, processes, products, promotions, services, slogans, and technologies. American therefore requests that you not send such proposals. Please also refrain from sending original creative artwork, blueprints, demonstratives, designs, layouts, photographs, or samples. American has adopted this policy to prevent claims that American has copied such unsolicited ideas without authorization, when, in fact, American developed the idea independent of or even long before receiving the unsolicited proposal. If you do send American unsolicited proposals, then do so with the understanding that American may use any concepts, ideas, inventions, know-how, or techniques that you disclose in those communications for any purpose, including the developing, manufacturing, and/or marketing of goods, products, or services. American may do so free of any obligation to compensate you for that use.
The Services may provide you the ability to have an on-line chat session with American or with information as to how you can contact American by telephone. You may use these functions only for business purposes related to the Services. For quality assurance purposes, American may monitor, record, and/or transcribe the contents of these communications. By contacting American, you agree that the communication may be monitored, recorded, and/or transcribed and you consent to the monitoring, recording, and/or transcribing. Such records may be kept indefinitely or disposed of at American’s discretion.
You agree to use any bulletin boards, chat rooms, conferences, or other communication or message facilities (“Forums”) contained on the Services only to send and receive material and messages that are proper and related to the particular Forum. You further agree that you will use the Forums in conformity with all applicable laws and this Agreement. You agree that you will not Misuse a Forum.
American reserves the right to remove at will, in its sole discretion with or without notice, any Content on the Services, including anything you post in a Forum. You understand that any use by you of a Forum constitutes a public communication. You understand that American owns any and all information or material that you post on a Forum. You agree that you waive all of the rights you have to any information or material that you post on a Forum. American has the right to do whatever it wishes with that information or material, including but not limited to deleting or editing for any reason any posting by you. You further acknowledge that American does not endorse or sponsor any information or material posted by Forum users, and that American has no responsibility to approve, review, or screen such information or material.
You agree that these Terms are made and entered into in Tarrant County, Texas. You agree that Texas law governs the interpretation of these Terms and/or any dispute arising from your access to, dealings with, or use of the Services or the SimplyMiles Program, without regard to conflicts of law principles. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any claim brought by you related to your access to, dealings with, or use of the Services or the SimplyMiles Program shall be settled by binding arbitration in the City and State of New York, pursuant to the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect. Any award shall be final, binding and conclusive upon the parties and a judgment rendered thereon may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. You agree and understand that you will not bring against American, or any of their affiliated entities, agents, directors, employees, and/or officers any class action lawsuit related to your access to, dealings with, or use of the Services or the SimplyMiles Program. To the fullest extent allowed by law, American disclaims any duty of good faith or fair dealing, as well as any implied contractual terms or obligations.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement governing your access to, dealings with, and use of the Services, and together with the AAdvantage® program terms and conditions, constitute the entire agreement governing your access to, dealings with, and use of the SimplyMiles Program. Of course, separate agreements may attach to any goods, products, or services you obtain, purchase, or use from the Services. In the case of a conflict between these Terms and any agreement specific to any goods, products, or services that you obtain, purchase, or use from the Services, the terms of the specific agreement shall govern.
Any failure of American to assert any rights it may have under these Terms does not constitute a waiver of our right to assert the same or any other right at any other time or against any other person or entity. If any provision of these Terms are found to be invalid or unenforceable, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be stricken from these Terms without affecting the validity or enforceability of any other provision.
