Privacy statement

Effective January 24, 2010

This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for the HPCT-CAE Membership Directory. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this web site. It will notify you of the following:

  1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the web site, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
  2. What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
  3. How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
  4. The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

When you or our Administrators create an account on our Membership Directory, you or our Administrators provide the Directory with certain personal information, such as your name, your email address, your telephone number, your address, and any other personal information that you provide.

When you enter the Directory, we collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all visitors. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using "cookies." A cookie is a piece of data stored on the Member's computer tied to information about the Member. We use session ID cookies to confirm that Members are logged in. These cookies terminate once the Member closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you come back to the Directory.

You post your content on the Directory at your own risk. Although the Directory is password protected, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other Members with whom we share your pages and information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that Member content you post on the Membership Directory will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Membership Directory. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of Member content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other Members have copied or stored your Member content.

Any improper collection or misuse of information provided on the HPCT-CAE Membership Directory is a violation of the Terms and should be reported.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by accessing your account information:

  • See what data we have about you, if any.
  • Change/correct any data we have about you.
  • Delete any data we have about you.
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data.

Changing or Removing Information

Access and control over personal information on the HPCT-CAE Membership Directory is readily available through the profile editing tools. You may modify or delete any of your profile information at any time by logging into your account. Information will be updated immediately. Individuals who wish to deactivate their HPCT-CAE Membership Directory account may do so on the My Account page. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be generally available to members of the HPCT-CAE Membership Directory.

Links

The HPCT-CAE Membership Directory may contain links to other websites. We are of course not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our Members to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the HPCT-CAE Membership Directory.

Security

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the web site, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Terms of Use, Notices and Revisions

Your use of the HPCT-CAE Membership Directory, and any disputes arising from it, is subject to this Privacy statement as well as our Terms and all of its dispute resolution provisions including arbitration, limitation on damages and choice of law. We reserve the right to change our Privacy statement and our Terms at any time. Non-material changes and clarifications will take effect immediately, and material changes will take effect within 30 days of their posting on this site. If we make changes, we will post them and will indicate at the top of this page the policy's new effective date. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or through notice on our home page. We encourage you to refer to this policy on an ongoing basis so that you understand our current privacy policy. Unless stated otherwise, our current privacy policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account.

If you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy, you should contact us immediately.
