“Personal Information” is information that would allow someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your full name, address, telephone number, Social Security number, or email address. Personal Information does not include aggregated information that, by itself, does not permit the identification of individual persons (like statistics about how many persons visited our web site last month, or how many visitors are male and how many are female).
Please note that if you provide any information on your own or directly to parties who provide service to our web site or any other sites you encounter on the Internet (even if these sites are identified with our branding), different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the Personal Information you disclose to them. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing information to third parties.
(1) What Personal Information is collected:
You may provide certain Personal Information to us in a number of ways, including when you: (a) send email messages, submit forms or send other information to us. In addition, through the WRMCA Web site or by other means, we encourage members and users to provide company information and contact information for some employees. This information is used to contact employees about WRMCA services for which they may have a targeted interest. It is optional for you to provide such Personal Information, but encouraged so that WRMCA can provide more personalized value to users and employees of members.
If you choose to pay for WRMCA services by credit card, you will be required to provide us the name of your credit card issuer, credit card number and expiration date.
We may use a feature of your browser called a “cookie.” A cookie is a piece of data stored on your hard drive containing information about you. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. One type of cookie that we may use, a “session cookie,” assigns a unique number that automatically identifies your computer when you visit the site. Once you close your browser, the session cookie simply terminates and is not saved on your computer disk drive. For instance, by setting a session cookie on our site, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. The second type of cookie that we may use is an “affiliate cookie.” This cookie is created on your computer only if you access our site from one of our affiliates. The affiliate cookie remains on your computer unless you intentionally remove it. However, like session cookies, affiliate cookies contain no information about you that can be linked to any personally identifiable information.
(2) Who collects the Personal Information:
WRMCA, which owns and operates the WRMCA web sites, is the organization that collects Personal Information on our site. Our mailing address is: WRMCA – 44 East Mifflin Street, Suite 305, Madison, WI 53703
Our customer service email address at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(3) How Personal Information is used:
We use your Personal Information to provide you with content and services that are tailored specifically to the profile you provide.
We do not sell or provide your Personal Information to third-party marketers or other third parties unless you expressly agree in advance to let us do so (“opt-in”). In particular, we do not use your credit card information (if you choose to provide it to us) for any purpose other than payment processing and order confirmation.
We use your information on an aggregated basis (not personally identifiable) to do such things as operate our site, enhance our site and deliver messages. We may disclose aggregated information about our users but that information contains no Personal Information.
(4) With whom the Personal Information may be shared:
(5) The choices available to users regarding collection, use and distribution of the Personal Information:
You are given the opportunity to “opt-in” to having your information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our registration form may include an “opt-in” mechanism so only those users who wish to share Personal Information with companies other than WRMCA can authorize distribution of that information to third parties.
You may also “opt-out” of receiving non-essential communications directly from WRMCA. If you no longer wish to receive our non-service related mailings, you may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to the email and placing “unsubscribe” in the subject line of the email or email us at email@example.com.
(6) How users can correct any inaccuracies in the Personal Information:
If Personal Information changes, or if you no longer desire that we maintain any Personal Information about you, we will provide a way for you to correct, update or remove your Personal Information. This can usually be done for you at the member information page or by emailing our Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(7) What kind of security procedures we use to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of your Personal Information under our control:
WRMCA takes precautions to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via our website, that information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration and personal profile forms ask users to enter Personal Information, that information is protected using industry-standard SSL encryption. While on a secure page, such as our profile form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just browsing.
SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, and is a protocol for transmitting private documents via the Internet. SSL works by using a private key to encrypt data that’s transferred over the SSL connection. Most major browsers support SSL.
We hope this policy clarifies our procedures regarding your Personal Information. If you have any questions about the security at our website or facilities, please send an email to email@example.com.
