APMP Website Privacy Policy

APMP knows that you care about how your personal information is collected and used, and we appreciate your trust in us to protect your privacy.

The following describes APMP's Privacy Policy.  This Policy applies to www.apmp.org ("this website”), and its chapter websites. It does not apply to independent organizations that associate with APMP. It does not apply to any other Internet websites, including those that have hypertext links to or from this website.

APMP may revise this Policy at any time, and will post the Policy on this web page, including the date, above, of the most recent update. By using this website, you are accepting the practices described in this Policy.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

When you visit this website, we collect information about you and your visit. Specifically, we collect:

Information You Voluntarily Provide

When you place an order on this website, complete any type of registration form, or complete various other online forms, for purposes such as logging in to the website, we receive and store that information. Typically, these voluntary forms include information such as your name, membership number, password, address information, work information, professional interests, phone and fax numbers, and email addresses. Other information may be gathered, depending on the form you are completing. Information you provide in online forms is often the same as or similar to information you would provide in traditional printed forms.

We use this information to respond to your requests, register you for events, deliver products and services, and inform you of events that may be of interest to you. We also use this information to control access to various restricted areas of the website.

All information you enter is only accessed by those people you authorize and authorized officers of APMP.

This information will not be used in a way that is outside of the normal operations of this website or APMP without your consent — except where your country’s legislation provides certain legal exemptions, such as in the pursuit of justice.

Information You Involuntarily Provide

Our server may log information about your visit as you visit this website. This information includes things like the website address you came from, the type of browser you are using, your numeric internet address, the date and time of your visit, and what pages you are viewing. Collection of these types of information is common practice by websites.

We use this information to learn about our visitors as a group, not about you as an individual. This information helps us identify overall usage patterns and trends on this website.

Information You Provide Through Email

In addition to collecting the information noted above, this website provides visitors the opportunity to send email to APMP.

When you send us an email and request a response, we use the email address and other information you provide to respond to your inquiry. We may also log the nature and content of email requests we receive, which helps us analyze visitor interests overall and identify areas for improvement on the site.

Security

APMP protects the security of your sensitive personal information, such as credit card number, when you exchange that information with this website. APMP uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology when exchanging this information, which encrypts the information during transit. This website does not display your full credit card information on any page. APMP also maintains firewall and other managed software, as well as physical and procedural safeguards, to protect systematically stored data.

Cookies

This website uses cookies, which are small pieces of text stored on your computer and used to identify your web browser. The cookies this website sends to your browser are used to save you time by remembering your login, to maintain your session, and to allow you access to member-only content. APMP does not sell or make available to other organizations any of the information in the cookies that it sets on your computer.

APMP uses both session and persistent cookies. Session cookies are stored in your browser’s memory and disappear when you shut down your browser or have no activity at a site for a defined period of time. Persistent cookies get written to your hard disk and thus can stay on your computer to identify you for an extended period of time.

You can disable the cookies function on your browser or erase the contents in your cookies file. To do this, consult the help features in your program manager and browser. However, in doing so, you may not be able to take advantage of personalization of this website described above.

Choice and Control

You maintain control of the personally identifiable information that APMP collects and maintains about you. This website provides means, through the "Update Member Profile” and/or its Member Services staff, for you to correct, update, and delete or deactivate your personally identifiable information and preferences. We also provide through those same means the opportunity for you to opt in or out of receiving communications from APMP.

Third Party Relationships

We may share aggregate demographic information with our advertisers and Corporate Sponsors. This data is not linked to any personally identifiable information.

We DO NOT provide any personally identifiable information, such as email address, to any third parties.

This website contains links to, and graphics from, third-party websites and/or content providers. This Policy does not extend to those parties, nor is APMP responsible for the content linked to or provided.

APMP may be required to provide information about its customers or prospective customers to law enforcement or government agencies if requested or necessary.
