Information We Collect. Information that we collect, use, store or disclose falls into two broad categories: (1) information you voluntarily provide to us while on our Site and (2) information that is automatically collected through the Site.
Information you voluntarily provide to us. While the Alliance does not require that you provide personal information to browse the Site, certain webpages of the Site may only be accessible by registering for an account or membership with the Alliance and/or by providing your personal information to us. For example:
When you apply for membership with the Alliance, sign up for a mailing list, or correspond with us via the Contact Us page of the Site, you will be required to provide certain personal information, including your first and last name, company name, address, email address, telephone number, preferences and interests, and other information regarding your line of business. If you communicate with us via email, we will also retain your email messages and email address. The Alliance may use such information to communicate with you in response to your requests.
We may use your personal information to contact you (including by mail, email or telephone) regarding upcoming events, newsletters, promotions or sweepstakes, blog posts, announcements regarding membership or membership benefits provided by the Alliance, market research communication (including member or end user customer surveys) or that is otherwise intended to promote the Alliance or its members. If at any time you would like to stop receiving such information from the Alliance, please notify us as provided in the “Contact Us” section below.
We may also use personal information held about you as follows:
- To improve Site performance and/or otherwise ensure that content on our Site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer;
- To help us understand your needs and interest in the Alliance;
- To provide administrative and/or technical support related to your use of the Site or your membership with the Alliance;
- To allow you to participate in interactive features of our Site, if any, when you choose to do so;
- For our risk management purposes;
- To manage or transfer our assets or liabilities, for example in the case of an acquisition, disposition or merger;
- To protect us, you and others from actual or suspected fraud or other illegal activities and to safeguard the best interests of the Alliance; and
- To comply with legal and regulatory requirements;
Information you voluntarily provide to us through the Site may be combined with information you provide to us through other sources.
Mobile Device Identifiers
You may be visiting the Site from your mobile device. Certain mobile service providers uniquely identify mobile devices and we or our third-party service providers may receive such information if you access the Site through a mobile device. Some features of the Site may allow for the collection of mobile phone numbers and we may associate that phone number to mobile device identification information. Furthermore, some mobile phone service providers operate systems that pinpoint the physical location of devices that use their service. Depending on the provider, we or our third-party service providers may receive this information.
Data Security. To protect your personal information against unauthorized acquisition, access, use and disclosure and to maintain data accuracy, we utilize reasonable technical, administrative and physical measures to safeguard and secure personal information collected through the Site. However, because the transmission of information via the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is not completely secure, we cannot guarantee the security of your personally identifiable data transmitted to our Site and any transmission is at your own risk. We therefore disclaim any liability for any theft or loss of, unauthorized access or damage to, or interception of any data or communication by using this Site.
If you create an account with us containing your personal information protected by a password, you are responsible for keeping your password confidential. We strongly recommend that you do not give your password to anyone. We also recommend that you change or re-arrange your password every three months. If you are using a public computer (for example, at a library), or if it is a shared computer, we urge you to log out of your account and our Site altogether, and quit the browser application before you leave the computer. This may help to prevent others from accessing your account information.
All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers located in the United States.
European Data Privacy. If you or the principal business location from which you communicate with the Alliance is located in the European Union, then any “personal data,” as defined in Article 2 of Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 or superseding General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679, shall be transferred to and processed by us outside of the European Union and you hereby: (i) grant the Alliance the right to process and store any personal data that you provide to us on or through the Site and (ii) represent to the Alliance that you will have obtained the consent to such transfer, processing, and storage from all individuals whose personal data is transmitted by you to the Site.
Access. Upon written request and authentication of your identity, we will provide you with any personal information under our control, information about the ways in which that information is being used and a description of the individuals and organizations to whom your information has been disclosed. We will make the information available within 30 days or provide written notice where additional time is required to fulfill the request.
In some situations we may not be able to provide access to certain personal information. This may be the case where, for example, disclosure would reveal personal information about another individual, the personal information is protected by attorney/client privilege, the information was collected for the purpose of an investigation or where disclosure of the information would reveal confidential commercial information of one or more of our members. We may also be prevented by law from providing access to certain personal information.
Where an access request is refused, we will notify you in writing, document the reasons for refusal and outline further steps which are available to you.
Corrections. We rely on you to ensure that information which you provide to us through the Site is current, complete and accurate. We will make a reasonable effort to ensure that personal information we use or disclose about you is accurate based on the information provided. There may be times when you want to access or modify your personal information. Accordingly, we invite you to contact us, as provided in the “Contact Us” section below.
Children’s Privacy. We do not knowingly collect information from or maintain information on our Site from users under the age of 13 and no sections of our Site are structured to attract or solicit any person under this age. We encourage parents and legal guardians to take an active role in monitoring their child’s online activities.
Do Not Track. “Do Not Track” is a privacy preference that you can enable on your Internet browser that sends a signal to a website that you do not want the website operator to track certain information about you based on your browsing activities. Our Site is not configured to detect Do Not Track signals from a user’s computer and therefore we do not respond to Do Not Track requests at this time.
