Collection of non-personal data
If you browse ASQSD's Web site and you are not an ASQSD member, you do so anonymously. We only collect your e-mail address and other personal information when you provide it of your own free will. We log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to tell us which parts of our Web site you visit and how long you spend there. We do not link your IP address to anything personally identifiable. We also track what country you are accessing the Internet from, and what time and date you visited.
The only other information automatically provided to us is the type of computer, operating system and Web browser you are using. Your browser supplies us with this information. We use this information from our server logs and analytics system to learn more about our visitors as a group, not about you as an individual. The information helps us identify overall usage patterns and trends on the site.
Collection of your personal information
Online forms are sometimes available for visitors to request information, download articles, or purchase products and services. We obtain information you provide to us via these forms, as well as surveys and contests, such as your name, mailing address and e-mail address. We may use this information to provide you with information about the products and services offered by ASQSD. In addition, this site uses registration links for visitors to register for courses, conferences, and/or certification exams. These links will take you to third party sites, which may have privacy policies that are different from www.ASQSanDiego.org.
Control of your personal information
ASQSD will not sell or share your e-mail address with other organizations. However, other information you share may be used to provide you with information from ASQSD or selected organizations about products, services or activities that may be of interest to you.
We might hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including electronic newsletter delivery and the processing of event registrations. We will only provide those companies with the information they need to deliver the service. They are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
If you supply your personal information to an ASQSD partner, such as a training provider or an event registration provider, please be aware that ASQSD no longer has control over the use of that personal information. We will not knowingly partner with companies that abuse personal information. However, be aware that our partner companies may contact you if you choose to conduct business with them.
Disclosure of your personal information
ASQSD may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) satisfy a legal order or comply with legal process; (b) defend the rights of ASQSD or its affiliates or business partners; or (c) protect the personal safety of ASQSD employees, agents, affiliates, business partners, customers or Web site users.
Access to your personal information
Your personal information is maintained at www.ASQ.org and is not under our control. We may access it to determine your membership status or to send you an email, but we do not store it.
