Notification of Changes to This Policy
SCACPA is continually improving and adding new functionality and features to its Web sites and improving and adding to our existing products, services, and programs. Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law, and the changing nature of technology, SCACPA's data practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, SCACPA will post the changes on our Web sites to notify you of the changes. We encourage you to check this page frequently. This policy was last updated on September 19, 2008.
Personal Data Collected Through Scacpa.org
Other than cookies, as described below, the only personal data SCACPA currently collects through its Web sites is the information you voluntarily give us when you use our sites.
For example, you may use this site to contact SCACPA with questions and comments. When you fill out a form on our Web sites, you may provide your name and other contact information, including your company's name, your e-mail address, and your mailing address or the mailing address of your company or other personal information. When you submit information, purchase products or register for events through www.scacpa.org
, you will receive a confirmation e-mail to the address we have on file. When you use our Web sites to search for information you are not providing us with any personal information. The SCACPA does not collect or retain any identifying information about you when you use the search features.
Use of Personal Data Collected Through Scacpa.org
SCACPA uses the personal information you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. SCACPA uses this information to help us improve the content and functionality of our Web sites, to better understand our customers and markets and, where appropriate our affiliates, to improve our products and services. SCACPA may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to "opt-out" of receiving future communications.
Similarly, we may provide "subscription" e-mail services, which enable you to receive current news impacting the CPA profession or the latest course offerings. For all such services, we will provide an opportunity to "opt-out" of, or cancel, the subscription.
Anonymous Data Collected Through Scacpa.org
In addition to the information you provide when you use our Web sites, SCACPA uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our Web sites. For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access our Web sites, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they view. We also use technology to determine which Web browsers our visitors use and the address from which they accessed our sites (for example, if they connected to a SCACPA Web site by clicking on one of our banner ads).
This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our sites. SCACPA and our affiliates use this anonymous data to improve the content and functionality of our Web sites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.
Disclosure of Your Personal Data
While no method of data transmission is guaranteed against unlawful third party interception or other misuse, SCACPA uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure protection of your data including industry-standard encryption and offline security methods in our physical facilities.
Link to Other Sites
SCACPA or its contractors may photograph or videotape SCACPA events. Attendees agree to allow their image to be used in SCACPA publications, Web site and marketing materials. Images and videos may also be shared with the media. Attendance at SCACPA events waives the SCACPA from liability resulting from these uses.
