Privacy Policy

Introduction.

­

COMPANY_NAME respects the privacy of every individual who visits its Web sites and uses its services. This privacy statement provides notice of the standards and terms under which COMPANY_NAME protects the privacy of information supplied by visitors to sites on the World Wide Web that are owned and operated by COMPANY_NAME. This privacy statement provides notice of our information collection practices and of the ways in which your information may be used. This policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically to review this information.

Personally Identifiable Information.

COMPANY_NAME typically receives specific data about its Web site visitors only when such information is provided voluntarily, such as when our visitors request information, purchase or enroll for services, provide resume information for employment opportunities, or send us e-mail. Of course, some of these activities require that you give us information, such as when you make a purchase, use a credit card or electronic payment service to pay for COMPANY_NAME services, submit your resume, or request certain types of information.

When you provide personally identifiable information to COMPANY_NAME through one of our Web sites, it will be used to fulfill your specific request. However, COMPANY_NAME reserves the right, in its discretion, to send you bulletins and other important information about your COMPANY_NAME services.

COMPANY_NAME currently only sends service communication e-mails through COMPANY_DOMAIN, and does not send marketing e-mails or third-party advertisements through COMPANY_DOMAIN. The service communication e-mails are essential to our registering you for service and to our continuing provision of services to you and may include notification of new services available via COMPANY_NAME. Therefore, you may not opt out of receiving these e-mail messages.

COMPANY_NAME will not, however, sell, trade, or otherwise disclose your personally identifiable information unless we are authorized or legally required to do so, or in the case of imminent physical harm to any person. On those COMPANY_NAME sites where you may provide COMPANY_NAME with credit card, electronic payment service, or other ordering information via the Web, COMPANY_NAME protects and secures this information by employing commercially customary Web-based security and encryption protocols, an example of which is the Secure Socket Layer (SSL). On those sites where you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, COMPANY_NAME  will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and non-proprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, COMPANY_NAME  assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure.

Non-Personally Identifiable (Generic) Information.

In general, COMPANY_NAME gathers some generic information automatically. Generic information does not reveal the identity of the visitor. It usually includes information about the Internet address assigned to your computer, the number and frequency of visitors, and the COMPANY_NAME sites visited. COMPANY_NAME gathers this information for the limited purpose of determining customer service and Web site needs. We accomplish this by using certain technologies, including "cookies" (a technology that can be used to provide the visitor with tailored information about COMPANY_NAME services). COMPANY_NAME does not combine information collected in this way with any personally identifiable information. You can set your Web browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and you can refuse it. However, refusing some cookies may make it impossible to use or navigate the COMPANY_NAME Web site properly.

PURPOSES

All such information will, or may, be used for any or all of the following purposes:

Consideration of applicants for membership, employment and for various services and benefits;

Membership records, administration, marketing of individual members to actual or potential clients;

Training record, administration and marketing;

Marketing, administration and records for other services offered to members or to the public;

General administrative and marketing purposes of the Association;

Statistical analyses and reports.

Exceptions and Limitations.

Notwithstanding the foregoing and in compliance with applicable laws, COMPANY_NAME  (i) cooperates fully with state, local, and federal officials in any investigation relating to any content (including personal or private electronic communications transmitted to COMPANY_NAME ) or purported unlawful activities of any user of the COMPANY_NAME  Service, and (ii) takes reasonable measures to protect its proprietary rights. For the limited purposes of accomplishing such cooperation and measures and in compliance with applicable laws, COMPANY_NAME may be required to disclose personally identifiable information.

In addition, COMPANY_NAME may elect to monitor the areas of communication of any kind (i) to satisfy any law, regulation, or government request; (ii) if such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to operate COMPANY_NAME's business; or (iii) to protect the rights or property of COMPANY_NAME or others.

We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.
