The IAAP Site. IAAP enables registered users ("IAAP members") to join IAAP, allowing collaboration of members who are willing to discuss, in detail, with each other about work related issues and other personal matters. IAAP members are able to communicate with other members in various ways within the IAAP Web Community, including through personal blogs and postings to self-selected e-groups.
Collection of Personal Information. You must submit an application to become an IAAP member. As part of the application, you are required to provide certain personal information, including your name, e-mail address, date of birth, and other information.
You also may have other opportunities to voluntarily provide personal information to IAAP. For example, if you contact us to provide feedback or request support we collect your e-mail address and other personal information that you provide.
Personal information may be passed along by participating in the activities of IAAP, such as during meetings or by utilizing the web community.
Passive Data Collection. IAAP, like other web-based services, automatically collects and stores information on our server logs from your browser when you use the IAAP site. IAAP may use a variety of methods to collect this information. The information that IAAP collects with these automated methods may include, for example, your IP address, IAAP cookie information, a unique device or user ID, browser type, system type, the content and pages that you access on the IAAP site, and the "referring URL" (i.e., the page from which you navigated to the IAAP site).
Websites visited before visiting the IAAP Site might place personal information within the URL of your browser during a visit to that previous website. IAAP may unintentionally collect that information as part of referring URL information that it collects.
Use of Web Community. When you post messages to the web community or otherwise transmit any content (collectively, the “Content”), the members may access any personal information within such content. We collect and maintain posts, messages, and other content that you have posted to the web community or transmitted to IAAP, as well as information about that content and your interaction with it.
Because you may voluntarily disclose personal information when you post or otherwise transmit content, please be careful with the information that you choose to disclose.
Use of Personal Information. We may use personal information to operate, provide, improve, and maintain the IAAP Site; to develop new products and services; to prevent abusive and fraudulent use of the IAAP Site; to send you administrative messages, and information about IAAP, content, and IAAP services in which we believe you may be interested; and for other administrative and internal business purposes. IAAP may provide personal information to its units so that they can offer information and benefits at the unit level as well.
Disclosure of Personal Information. IAAP occasionally does send e-mail communications to its memberships on behalf of sponsors. IAAP members have the opportunity to opt out of such electronic mailings by choosing their communications preferences within our member database.
IAAP may provide personal information to third parties for their use in performing internal business functions (e.g., payment processing, maintenance, security, data analysis, or data hosting) on our behalf.
IAAP may disclose personal information if, in good faith, it is believed that doing so is required by a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order or otherwise required by law. Additionally, IAAP may disclose personal information if, in good faith, we deem it appropriate or necessary to prevent violation of the IAAP Terms and Conditions of Use, or our other agreements; take precautions against liability; protect the rights, property, or safety of IAAP, any individual, or the general public; maintain and protect the security and integrity of our services or infrastructure; protect ourselves and our services from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; or assist government enforcement agencies.
Change of Ownership. In the event of a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or sale of assets to, another entity, we reserve the right to transfer all of your personal information, including email addresses, to that entity.
Security. We use industry standard security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of personal information under our control. Although we make good faith efforts to maintain the security of such personal information, we cannot guarantee that it will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration. Further, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining this information. We do not assume any liability to third parties whose information you post or transmit in any form. Please keep your password secure.
If we become aware of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the IAAP Site or providing personal information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the IAAP Site.
