  1. Log Files

The Association Partner follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, advertising, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.

  1. Our Use of Cookies

We and our third-party service providers set and use cookies and similar technologies to store and manage user preferences, enable content, gather analytic and usage data, and deliver targeted advertising. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on a computer or other device and is used to identify the device and to collect information. Cookies are typically assigned to one of the following categories, depending on their function and intended purpose:

  • Essential cookies enable you to navigate our website and to use our services and features. Without these cookies, our website will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like, and we may not be able to provide certain core functions and features.
  • Analytics cookies collect information about the use of our website and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, analytics cookies show us the most frequently visited pages and analyze site traffic. We use them to look at overall patterns of usage on the site, rather than the usage of any particular individual.

We use third-party service providers, including Google Analytics, to analyze the use of our website. You can opt-out of the use of web analysis at any time either by either downloading and installing a Browser Plugin offered by Google, or by configuring your browser to delete and reject cookies.

  • Social Medial cookies collect information about your visit to our site, but only when you are logged in to your social media account.
  • Customer interaction cookies allow us to communicate with you, including real-time communication through our chat feature.
  • Marketing cookies track browsing habits and are used to deliver targeted (interest-based) advertising. You can opt out of receiving interest-based ads for web properties here (Digital Advertising Alliance’s WebChoices).

Most browsers are set up to accept cookies automatically. You can deactivate the storing of cookies or adjust your browser to inform you before the cookie is stored on your computer. Some browsers have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform. We do not currently respond to those signals.

Third-party ad servers or ad networks uses technologies like cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons that are used in their respective advertisements and links that appear on The Association Partner, which are sent directly to users’ browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this occurs. These technologies are used to measure the effectiveness of their advertising campaigns and/or to personalize the advertising content that you see on websites that you visit. Note that The Association Partner has no access to or control over these cookies that are used by third-party advertisers.

  1. Social Media

We may use social media accounts (such as LinkedIn) to engage with the public. Our social media accounts are produced and maintained by our communications group, sometimes working with service providers. Through our social media engagement we are able to build online awareness about our company and our services, respond to messages through the comment, message, or chat functions, collect aggregated information about interactions with our content on or through social media, and analyze trends. When you engage with us through our social media channels, the platform providers will also process information about you. For further information, please consult the privacy policy of the platform provider.

  1. Links to Third Party Sites

From time to time, we may provide links to unaffiliated third-party websites. Those websites operate independently from us and our affiliates and may have their own privacy statements in place which we commend you review if you visit any linked websites. The ability to access information of third parties from our website, or links to other websites, locations, products, or services, is for your convenience and does not signify our endorsement of such third parties, their services, other websites, locations, or their contents.

  1. Member Association Data Collection

From time to time, Member Associations may use the Interactive Services to post User Contributions (as defined in Section 7 (User Contributions) of the Website Terms of Use) soliciting additional information from users. Such data is collected by us on behalf of the Member Association and our use of that information is governed by this privacy policy. We are not in a position to control either the data collected in response to Member Association User Contributions, nor how that data will be used following its transmission to the relevant Member Association.

  1. Security

We recognize the importance of maintaining the security of your information. We have implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, use, and modification. Please be aware though that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.
