2. Outside Web Sites
The EACE web site contains links to other sites. EACE is not responsible for the privacy practices of such web sites. Inclusion of links to an outside web site is not an endorsement of the outside web site or a guarantee that the information it contains is accurate.
Members may be asked to use an online form to register an opinion, or register for a conference or program. These forms typically ask for:
* contact information (such as phone number or e-mail address),
* unique identifiers (such as EACE membership number or account number),
* financial information (such as a credit card number), and
* demographic information (for example, location, type and size of organization).
Contact information from these forms is used only for the purposes noted on the form. Unique identifiers (specifically, password or member number) are collected from EACE members to verify the user's identity and for use in EACE's record system. Information from these forms is also used by EACE to send members information about products, services, conferences, and other information that may be of interest. Members not wanting to receive mailings (regular or electronic) from EACE should refer to the "opt-out" section on the web site.
4. Mailing Labels/E-mail Addresses
EACE makes membership mailing labels available to other reputable organizations whose products or services we think may be of interest to the membership. The mailing labels contain your name, organization, and postal address. If you do not want to receive any mail please see the "opt-out" section below.
EACE does not provide any e-mail addresses, phone numbers, or other personally identifiable information that it collects on its web site to any individual or organization for any purpose, including commercial. EACE uses the information collected to improve the content of its web site, enhance existing services and member benefits, and plan for new services and member benefits. EACE may also collect aggregate information regarding which pages visitors access as they use the EACE web site. In addition, contact information may be provided to a third party to facilitate delivery of EACE-related materials, e.g., electronic newsletters; in such circumstances, the third party agrees not to sell or use the information except for the purposes EACE contracted.
5. Chat Room and Online Discussion Groups
EACE makes networking and chat opportunities available to its visitors through chat rooms and online discussion groups. Any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information, and individuals should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information. EACE cannot control the acts of its members and visitors who use the chat rooms and discussion groups. Disclosure of personal information, such as name, e-mail address, mailing address, and phone number, may lead to that information being used by others for unsolicited e-mail or other contact. In its chat rooms and discussion groups, EACE collects all contact names, e-mail addresses and dialogue. Dialogue in the chat rooms and online discussion groups may be archived for later retrieval by an EACE committee or staff member. Messages go to the archives as they are posted.
The EACE web site takes every precaution to protect user information. When users submit sensitive information via the web site, the information is protected both online and off-line. When sign-up form(s) ask users to enter sensitive information (i.e. credit card numbers), that information is encrypted and protected. While encryption is used to protect sensitive information online, EACE also does everything in its power to protect user information off-line. Access to all users' personally identifiable information - not just the sensitive information mentioned above - is restricted to only the EACE members who need the information to perform a specific task (for example, billing assistant or customer service representative). The EACE web site uses firewalls to protect from loss, misuse and alteration of the information under its control.
