Adopted and Effective as of September18, 2018
1. COLLECTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
During a User’s use of any ATSA Site, ATSA may collect and/or retain the following (hereinafter referred to as the User’s “personal identifiable information”):
(i)information or other data about the User, such as but not limited to the following: User’s name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, demographics, work/education history, ethics complaints, professional licenses, professional referral information and other personal data that may be relevant to customer support;
(ii)any content or other data that a User may upload, distribute, publish or otherwise use via the Site; or
(iii)any feedback, information or other data about a User’s use, or the results of a User’s use, of any ATSA Site.
It is ATSA’s policy to use a User’s personally identifiable information in compliance with the then applicable version of ATSA’s Code of Ethics, as ATSA may adopt from time to time and at any time (hereinafter referred to as the “ATSA Code of Ethics”).
All of a User’s personally identifiable information that ATSA collects may be used for any or all of the following purposes by or on behalf of ATSA, subject, however, to ATSA’s compliance with the ATSA Code of Ethics (hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Intended Uses”):
(i)for ATSA’s internal administration and record keeping purposes;
(ii)to provide User with proper access to and use of any ATSA Site and/or any of the features or functionalities of any other products or services offered, sponsored or otherwise made available by ATSA, including without limitation any of ATSA’s websites, conferences, list serves, referral lists, or membership databases (hereinafter collectively referred to as “ATSA Services”);
(iii)to provide User with any other marketing or promotional material, information or notices about any ATSA Site, any ATSA Services, or any other events offered, sponsored, or otherwise made available by or on behalf of ATSA;
(iv)to share with any of ATSA’s vendors, suppliers, independent contractors, consultants, or other industry partners of ATSA (“ATSA Partners”) in order to assist ATSA in developing, providing, operating and/or maintaining any ATSA Sites or any ATSA Services;
(v)to provide User with marketing or promotional material, information or notices regarding any features or functionalities of any products or services of any ATSA Partners or any other events offered, sponsored, or otherwise made available by or on behalf any ATSA Partners;
(vi)to provide User with any other information about any other products, services, events, functions, or items offered, sponsored, or otherwise made available by any governmental agencies, other non-profit entity, or any other party which ATSA believes may be relevant to the User; or
(vii)for any other lawful purpose.
In the event a User has provided ATSA with personally identifiable information such as that discussed above, and thereafter a User does not want to continue to directly receive further email communications from ATSA, the User must send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org stating that the User no longer wants to receive email communications directly from ATSA (“Opt Out”). Once ATSA has received that User’s request to Opt Out, ATSA will use commercially reasonable efforts, in a commercially reasonable time period, to try to carry out such User’s request to Opt Out; provided, however, ATSA will not have any obligation to retrieve, and cannot prevent the further use by others (including, without limitation, ATSA Partners) of such User’s personal identifiable information that may have been shared with others prior to the effective date of the User’s Opt Out.
3. PROTECTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
4. ACCESSING AND UPDATING USER’S PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
Users are solely responsible for correcting, updating, modifying or eliminating any and all of the User’s personally identifiable information as it appears in, and as otherwise stored or contained in, any ATSA Site. Without in any way limiting the foregoing, User acknowledges and agrees that ATSA has no duty to correct, update, modify or eliminate any of the User’s personally identifiable information as it appears in, is stored, or is otherwise contained in, the ATSA Site.
5. LINKS TO, AND USE OF, THIRD PARTY SITES
6. NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION.
During a User’s visit to the ATSA Site, ATSA may use the User’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address to help ATSA administer the ATSA Site. Also, our server (or any server that ATSA engages) may place small temporary text files called “cookies” on the User’s computer processor or in the browser directory of the User’s hard drive. ATSA may also use the User’s IP address and/or cookies to gather non-personally identifiable demographic information, such as how many Users visited a certain part of the Site, but not to track a specific IP address to the identity of a particular individual User. A User may choose not to accept cookies by setting the User’s web browser to either refuse all cookies or to notify the User each time before a cookie is set
7. DO NOT TRACK
Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets web site users inform web sites or other applications that they do not want to have their online activities tracked. These ”do not track” features may also give website users other choices regarding the collection of their personal identifiable information. However, these “do not track” features and “do not track’ signals are not yet uniform. Accordingly, each User of this ATSA Site is hereby notified that this ATSA Site is not currently set up to respond to any of the User’s “do not track” features or “do not track” signals.
