IAAP Privacy Policy

Our Commitment To Privacy:
We are committed to maintaining and respecting the privacy of our members and website visitors. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

Some contact information of our leadership is made public on the website for the purpose of allowing people interested in membership or events to contact their local IAAP representatives. Use of these e-mails to contact our leadership for the purpose of solicitation is forbidden. 

The Information We Collect:
We collect information volunteered by our website visitors and members through our online order forms, registration forms, and membership applications. In addition, we also collect and analyze our web server log data. All information collected is used to provide requested services to members and website visitors, improve the content of the website and online services, and for aggregate visitor analysis.

Persistent cookies may be used on this website. These are pieces of information or data sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. We use this information to analyze traffic patterns and improve our website. If you prefer not to accept cookies, the help portion of the tool bar on most web browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, disabling cookies may result in certain parts of the website not operating correctly or prevent you from taking full advantage of some of the features of our website.

The Way We Use Information:
We occasionally rent our active member and OfficePro magazine subscriber postal mailing list (postal mailing addresses only) to carefully screened business partners. The income derived from list rental helps to fund member programs and services, and helps keep annual membership dues as low as possible. We do not provide members' phone numbers or e-mail addresses to external vendors. We do not allow external parties to use this information for telemarketing or mass e-mail campaign purposes. IAAP members may opt-out of receiving postal mailings from IAAP business partners during the initial online registration process, or by sending e-mail to membership@iaap-hq.org or calling 816.891.6600 ext. 2238.
