Privacy Policy

We know that you care how your information is used, and we appreciate your trust that we will use it carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. This policy applies to information we collect on our Website and in e-mail and other electronic messages between you and our Website. This policy does not apply to information collected by us offline or through any other means, including on any other website operated by us or any third party. Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our Website. By accessing or using our Website, you agree to this privacy policy.

 

1. What Personal Information Do We Collect?

  • Information You Provide. We receive and store information you enter. For example, when you supply information such as your address, phone number or email address. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, improving our website, and communicating with you.
  • Information from Other Sources. We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. This may include updated delivery and address information from reputable sources so that we can correct our records and deliver your next communication more easily.

 

2. How Do We Use Your Information?

  • Customized Member Experience. We use your information to better serve you by providing a customized experience. As noted above, you may “opt-out” of this benefit.
  • Agents. We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
  • Special Announcements. We may send you special announcements from time to time, unless you choose to “opt-out” of receiving. In addition, we may also send you special event announcement from other organizations. Again, you may “opt- out”. If we send you announcements from other organizations, we do not share your personal information with them. The communications come directly through us. Please see the “opt-in/opt-out” selection at the end of this policy.
  • Law Enforcement. If we receive a lawful court order to release account or other personal information then we will comply with the law.

 

3. How Do We Protect the Security of Your Information?

  • We use a firewall to protect against unlawful intrusion.
  • We limit access to your information on a “need to know” basis.
  • It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
  • No system can guarantee absolute security, just as the finest lock cannot guarantee physical security. However, we take every reasonable precaution to assure that your data is secure.

 

4. Your Choice: Opt-in or Opt-out.

It is your choice whether to receive emails or special announcements from us or others. The following section provides you with this choice. Please note the default settings.

  • Yes, I wish to receive email messages with general information as well as announcements, reminders and updates related to upcoming events from Technology Association of Georgia.
  • No, I do not wish to receive email messages with general information as well as announcements, Reminders and updates related to upcoming events from Technology Association of Georgia.

You will find these options in your password protected member profile. To change your selection, either log in to your member profile and select the appropriate box or notify the IHIT Office.
