THE INFORMATION THE ASSOCIATION COLLECTS AND HOW WE USE THIS INFORMATION
The Association only obtains personally identifiable information such as your name, email address and payment card or other information when you provide it voluntarily. For example, personal information may be collected from you to:
- respond to your comments regarding membership, Event, our website, or other aspects of the Association;
- register you for our mailing lists or as a user of online or mobile products or services we offer, or to register you for promotions or offers conducted through our website or mobile campaigns;
- transmit payment information for online or mobile orders;
- respond to other information submitted by you to our website or through any of our mobile campaigns.
This information will be used for the purposes for which you provide it. We may also use this information to communicate with you from time to time for other purposes, such as to create personalized promotions by combining your personal information with non-personal information about you, such as the amounts and types of purchases you make or any benefits you receive through our programs.
We may also use information you provide us for additional purposes as described under “Sharing of Personal Information.”
In addition to personally identifiable information about you, the Association may collect aggregated data or anonymized data that does not directly identify you. For example, we may automatically collect website use information, such as information about your Internet service provider, your operating system, browser type, domain name, Internet protocol (IP) address, your access times, the website that referred you to us, the Web pages you request, and the date and time of those requests.
CALIFORNIA’S DO NOT TRACK NOTICE
The Association does not support Do Not Track browser settings and does not currently participate in any Do Not Track frameworks that would allow any of our sites to respond to signals or other mechanisms from you regarding the collection of your personal information. However, our sites do not track any personally identifiable information on our sites unless you intentionally provide it to us (such as when you create an account, opt-in to our marketing lists, or make a purchase).

SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
The Association uses its best efforts to protect your personally-identifiable information and privacy. We do not sell, transfer or disclose your personal information to any third parties other than for the limited purposes described in this policy.
With your permission, we will send marketing information to you, such as information about Association events or news that might interest you. If you do not want to receive this information, you can contact us to opt out and we will not send it to you thereafter. Also with your permission, we may occasionally send marketing information to you on behalf of one of our business partners. On our website or elsewhere, we may ask if you want to receive marketing materials from our business partners. If you want to receive this information, we’ll send it to you. If you don’t want it, just tell us and you won’t get it. But remember, the Association will not share your personal information with any of its business partners. We will just send a mailing, e-mail, text message or similar communication on behalf of the business partner.
The Association sometimes contacts other companies for a variety of reasons, such as fulfilling orders, assisting with promotions, and providing technical services for our websites. These companies may have access to personal information if they need it to do their work. However, we will generally obligate these companies to use any personal information only for the purpose of performing their work.
We may, where expressly stated, post certain submissions on our websites. However, we will not include your full name or other personal information identifying you unless you have given us consent to do so
The Association does reserve the right to use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement or similar investigation.
Finally, we may also share aggregated or anonymized information that does not directly identify you.
The Association is very sensitive to privacy issues regarding kids. We do not intend our websites to collect personal information from kids under the age of 13.
