What personal information is collected?
AACSM only collects personal information on a voluntary basis. If an on-line visitor submits information to aacsm.org, it will usually take the form of either:

- product and/or membership registration or registration for on-line customer relations,
- requests for service, sales or support,

Personal information collected may include your name, home and/or work address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, age, gender, and/or birth date. We do not require this information to gain access to our sites, however, you will not be able to access certain areas that require registration or receive materials, such as newsletters, unless such information is provided. Visitors purchasing products or services through our on-line stores will be required to provide additional information such as a valid credit card number and expiration date.
What other types of information may we collect?
Your web browser or client software may transmit certain geographic information or information regarding the capabilities of your computer to aacsm.org. AACSM may use this information to generate aggregate statistics about our user community. This information is never linked to you, or your household, in any way.
How do we use your personal information?
The personal information you provide AACSM will allow us to fulfill your product or service order; alert you of new products, features, or enhancements; and/or notify you of upgrade opportunities, contests, or special events. We may also provide your personal information to our affiliates, or other companies or organizations that offer products that may be of interest to you. AACSM may enhance or merge the personal information collected at an aacsm.org site with data collected from third parties.

Who is collecting your information?
With whom may my personal information be shared?
As a general rule, AACSM will not disclose any of your personal information except when we have your permission. However, we may need to disclose your personal information to third party vendors to fulfill orders or to process mailings. In special circumstances, we may also disclose such information if there is a violation of our Terms of Service or Use Agreements or if we have a good faith belief that the law requires it. AACSM sites also have message boards and/or chat areas, where users can exchange ideas and communicate with one another. When posting to a message board or chat area, please be aware that the information is being made publicly available on-line.
What choices do I have regarding the collection, use, and distribution of my personal information?
AACSM allows you to control the way that we use personal identifying information that we might obtain. In fact, many of the “mailings” AACSM may send you, such as newsletters, have procedures within them to cancel the receipt of any future mailings. If at any time you wish to opt-out of: (1) providing us your personal information, (2) having your personal information shared with third parties, and/or (3) receiving information (via email or postal mail) about new products, services, or promotions, you can do so. Visit your member control panel on our website to select your opt-out options, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or write to AACSM Privacy/Opt-Out at: PO BOX XXX, Greenville, NC. Please indicate in your request your username (password is neither necessary nor recommended) and what publications or services you no longer wish to receive so that we may better address your needs.
What about children?
Children Under 13 Once a child states that their age is under 13, we do not collect or store any personally identifiable information such as name, address, or email address.
Note to Parents:
We recognize a special obligation to protect personal information obtained from young children. We urge parents to instruct their children to never give out their real names, addresses, or phone numbers, without permission, when on-line. No information should be submitted to aacsm.org by children 12 and under. Children under the age of 17 and over the age of 12 should encourage their parents to review this policy and to contact us if they would like to evoke our opt-out policy or to raise any concerns.
What are cookies and how do you use them?
What are Internet protocol addresses?
An Internet protocol (“IP”) address is the unique number assigned to your server or Internet Service Provider (“ISP”). AACSM may track such IP addresses for system administration, to report aggregate information, or to prevent our servers from being abused.
What do I do if I want to correct or review my personal information?
If for any reason you are concerned with the way we are using your personal information, or would like to correct or request that we cease from using such personal information, please visit your member control panel on our website, where you can change your information, or contact aacsm.org Privacy On-line at: 2120 E.

How secure is my personal information?
AACSM has taken steps to assure that all information collected will remain secure and in its original form, i.e. free from any alteration. As such, access to all personal information is strictly controlled. When credit card information is transmitted, for example, we use industry standard, SSL (secure lock layer) encryption. In addition, we will take reasonable steps to assure that third parties to whom we transfer any data will provide sufficient protection of personal information.
What if I have a question or complaint?
