AFCEA strongly believes that if electronic commerce and online  activities are to flourish, consumers must be assured that information  provided online is used responsibly and appropriately. To protect online privacy, AFCEA has implemented the following policy which together with our Terms and Conditions govern AFCEA’s relationship with you in  relation to this website.

What Information Does AFCEA Collect?

Data AFCEA collects are used only to help AFCEA better serve its  members. It is our policy to collect and store only personal information that our members and visitors knowingly provide. If our privacy  policies change, we will notify all users by e-mail or a special  announcement placed on the Web site.

From General Users

AFCEA does not collect any personal information from users  browsing its Web site. Users of the public areas of AFCEA’s Web site  browse anonymously. Our Web site automatically records the user’s IP  address and we do not link IP addresses to a user’s personal  information. Only aggregate data, such as the number of hits per page,  are used. Aggregate data are only used for internal and marketing  purposes and do not provide any personally identifying information.

From AFCEA Members, Conference Registrants, and Other Customers

To gain access to members-only resources and personalization  features on the AFCEA Web site, members are asked to use their login  name and password. AFCEA asks other users to provide their name,  organization name, business phone, and e-mail. These data are submitted  voluntarily. Similar information may be submitted to AFCEA through  membership applications, conference or seminar registrations,  publication orders, and subscriptions. Additionally, for some emails  sent in HTML format by AFCEA to its members and other customers, AFCEA  may collect specific information regarding what the recipient does with  that email. For those emails, AFCEA may monitor whether a recipient  subsequently clicks through to links provided in the message. Other  information collected through this tracking feature includes: email  address of a user, the date and time of the user’s “click,” a message  number, name of the list from which the message was sent, tracking URL  number, and destination page. AFCEA will only use this information to  enhance its services and distribution of those services to its members  and other customers. This information will not be distributed in any  other manner without user consent.

How does AFCEA Use Data Collected?

AFCEA uses information voluntarily submitted by members and other customers in the following ways:

AFCEA Member Services and Products

AFCEA and its direct subsidiaries use data collected to maintain  the user’s membership, mail the SIGNAL Magazine and provide requested  services (i.e., courses and events.) In addition this information may be used to improve AFCEA International’s Web content; to respond to  members’ interests, needs and preferences; and to develop new products  and services.

Disclosures to Third Parties

AFCEA makes member contact information available to other members through the “members only” portion of its Portal using the AFCEA Member Search function. AFCEA does not sell member information to anyone.  Member personal information is not shared with third parties other than  those acting as agents of this organization and as directed by AFCEA.  For example, a third party may act as our agent, acting as event  registration manager, for AFCEA International sponsored events.  Therefore if a user registers for an event, they may be directed to an  event specific Web site. A third party acting on behalfof AFCEA may  collect event registration information for the purposeof managing the  event on behalf of AFCEA.

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a  current judicial proceeding, a court order, or legal process served on  our Web site.

AFCEA may send such data outside the European Economic Area for processing. Voluntary provision of  information to AFCEA International will be considered consent for AFCEA  to use that information in the manner and for the purposes stated above. For issues regarding the EU Safe Harbor privacy program that cannot be  resolved by contacting our Customer Service Center, users may contact  the EU Data Protection Authorities for dispute resolution.

How can users access information they have submitted through the Web site?
