This Privacy Policy was last modified on March 13, 2022.


This privacy policy is applicable to this Website (the “Site”), which is provided and operated by Southern Delaware Intergroup of Alcoholics Anonymous (“SDIAA” or “we”).

Please read the following terms carefully before using the site. Access to the Site is offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions and notices contained herein (collectively, the “Privacy Policy”). In addition, particular features, applications and activities offered as part of the Site may also be subject to additional privacy terms specified in connection with such features, applications and activities, all of which are incorporated herein by reference.

By accessing or using the Site, you agree to this privacy policy. If you do not agree to this privacy policy, do not use the Site.

Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to information collected via the Site. It does not apply to information that you may submit to us by any other means, or to websites maintained by other organizations.

Your Privacy

SDIAA respects the privacy of every individual who visits this Site. This privacy statement provides notice of our information collection practices and of the ways in which your information may be used.

SDIAA may modify, add, or delete portions of this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the changes on this page. Your continued use of the Site after any such changes have been made means you agree to such changes. If SDIAA makes any material changes to the Privacy Policy, it will indicate, at the top of this page, the date the Privacy Policy was last revised.

Personal Information

We do not require information that can identify you personally, or that can be used with other sources of information to identify you (“Personal Information”) in order to access and use the Site.

However, you may voluntarily respond to a survey or communication, such as an online form. Then we ask only for only the personal information needed, such as your name and email address. The personal information you provide is used by SDIAA for internal administrative purposes. For example, you are asked for a first name and an email address to request a change to a meeting. Or you may sign-up to be on our mailing list, providing your first name and email address (last name is optional), to receive periodic emails from us that contain non-commercial information about SDIAA or A.A. (e.g. articles from members and notifications of upcoming A.A. events). We never ask for credit card numbers.

How We Use the Information

Any personal information submitted by you is kept strictly confidential, and is used solely by SDIAA to provide the information that you requested.

Disclosure of Information

SDIAA does not lend, lease, sell, or otherwise intentionally transfer visitors’ personal information to any third party.

Third-Party Sites

Portions of this Site contain links or references to other websites. Please be aware that we have no control over these sites and our Privacy Policy does not apply to these sites. Third party sites may also use tracking technologies. We have no responsibility or liability for any tracking, data collection or other activities of such third parties. SDIAA does not generally link to third-party sites that are inconsistent with Alcoholics Anonymous’ Twelve Traditions, or commercial in nature except to sites that use a tool or process for the functioning of this website. For example, we use the Twelve Step Meeting List plugin which can reference or link to Google Hangouts, GoToMeeting, Skype, WebEx, Zoom, Google Maps or Mapbox.


Like many websites, SDIAA uses cookies, which are small text files placed on your computer. Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but allow you to disable them. We recommend that you leave cookies enabled, so we can offer you a better experience. SDIAA will not drop cookies or other tracking devices that are persistent and/or cannot be erased on an end user’s hard drive or device. You may occasionally receive cookies from third-party providers. SDIAA does not control these cookies, and these cookies fall outside the scope of this Privacy Policy.

Content from External Platforms

SDIAA uses maps visualization services from Google Maps and Mapbox that allows this website to incorporate content of this kind on its pages. Personal data collected are cookies and usage. For more information see Google Privacy Policy and Mapbox Privacy Policy.

Matomo Analytics

SDIAA is using Matomo, an open source platform, that provides web analytics in order to measure, collect, analyze and report visitor data for purposes of understanding and optimizing this website. Matomo Analytics is privacy by design. All visitor’s IP addresses are anonymized and not tracked, and there is no ad-tracking on this platform. For more information, see Matomo Privacy Policy. You can opt out of being tracked by our Matomo Analytics tracking below.

Opt-out of Matomo Analytics tracking

You may choose to prevent this website from aggregating and analyzing the actions you take here. Doing so will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and creating a better experience for you and other users.

Google Analytics

SDIAA does not use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) which uses cookies to analyze use patterns and collect information about your use of the website (which may include your IP address, geolocation, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, and a reading history of the pages you view).
