Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy & Legal Disclaimer

Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Akron Area Chapter is committed to maintaining the privacy of its online visitors. This Privacy Policy provides information on the manner in which your personal information is processed and used on this site. We do not sell, rent, swap or otherwise disclose any personal information of our visitors.

Information Collected
Akron Area PRSA is committed to maintaining the privacy of its online visitors. Certain applications on our website may require visitors to register or to provide information in order to make a commerce transaction. This personal information includes, but is not limited to, name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and credit card information. To better understand the needs of our website users, we may also occasionally request demographic information. Entry of such information is optional, and if you choose not to participate, you can still successfully use these applications. We will not share personal information about you as an individual with any other entity. Only aggregate demographic information may be used by us.

We cannot know an individual's personal information unless it is provided to us by site registrations or purchases. In addition to using your name and contact information to fulfill your requests, process your transactions or award prizes, we will add your name and contact information to our database, and we may perform statistical analyses of user behavior to measure interest in the various areas of our site. You may receive direct mail or telemarketing calls from Akron Area PRSA. If you provide your e-mail address, we may e-mail you periodically regarding upcoming events, updated information and new services. You may contact us to notify us that you do not wish to receive such communications from us. (See the 'Choice/Opt-Out' and 'Contact Us' sections below.)

For each visitor to our website, our server automatically logs some anonymous statistical information. We collect the domain name of visitors to our website, aggregate information on what pages consumers access or visit, the time of arrival and length of visit, the browser used, a list of files downloaded or pages viewed, and the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the machine through which the site was accessed. These "access logs" allow us to make our site more useful to you and others by, for example, tracking which features of the site are most used by visitors. None of this information is associated with any personal information or contains anything identifying you personally.

We employ other companies to perform functions on our behalf, such as processing credit card payments. Such companies have access only to the information necessary for performing their functions. We do not partner with nor have special relationships with any ad server companies.

Choice/Opt-Out
Users of our site who no longer wish to receive our e-newsletter or e-mails are given the opportunity to "opt-out" of receiving these communications. Users should send an e-mail to akronprsa@gmail.comwith "Unsubscribe" in the subject line to opt-out of electronic communications.

Cookies
A cookie is a small text file that is created by a webserver and placed on a visitor's hard drive, which gives that visitor a unique, random ID. This ID enables our website to readily recognize each visitor on a subsequent visit to the site. For example, a cookie may indicate the preferences selected by a visit to the site and facilitate more efficient browsing on subsequent visits. We use cookies to store visitor preferences, record session information such as items that consumers add to their shopping cart, and to record user-specific information on what pages users access or visit. We do not use or share information transferred through cookies with third parties for marketing or other purposes. If you do not wish a cookie to be placed on your computer, you can adjust the settings on your browser accordingly, although doing so will limit the range of features that will be available for your use on our site.

Unsolicited E-mail (SPAM)
Your privacy is important to us. Be assured that, in accordance with this privacy policy, we do not sell or distribute our customer list to third parties. Please note that all e-mail that originates from us will either display the www.akronprsa.org (HTML emails) or contain Akron Area PRSA copyright notice (text emails). In addition, our emails will contain our address in Akron, Ohio.

Security
We take every precaution to protect our users' information. When you place an order online, your personal information and credit card or debit card information are encrypted using SSL encryption technology before being sent over the Internet. We use SSL Technology to prevent your information from being stolen or intercepted while being transferred to us. If you make a purchase online, we will only use your credit card number to process your payment and not use it for any other purpose. For reasons of security, unencrypted credit card information is not stored on our webserver. We may retain order information for our records, but this information is never shared with third parties.

Linked Websites
Our website may contain links to and from other sites operated and maintained by other companies and organizations. We have no responsibility for linked websites and provide these links solely for the convenience and information of our visitors. The privacy policies of these sites may differ from our policy, so you should always review the privacy statement of each linked website you visit.

Your Consent
By using our site, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to modify or amend this policy at any time. If we ever change our Privacy Policy, we will posit any changes on this page. Any changes to our Privacy Policy will affect only the information we collect after the effective date of the change.
