On the AITP web site, over the telephone, or through the mail, you are able to order products or services from AITP, apply for AITP membership, and register for seminars, courses, and conferences. The types of personal information collected by AITP may include, but may not be limited to, your name, your employer and job title, your contact and billing information for business and home (including telephone number and e-mail address), and your credit card information (if applicable).
Use of Information
AITP uses your information to better understand your needs and provide you with better service. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete transactions requested by you, to communicate back to you, and to offer and update you on AITP services and benefits. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are not retained for other purposes.
Sharing of Information
AITP will not use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us for purposes other than for which the information was originally submitted, without your express permission. We will also provide you the opportunity to inform us at any time if you choose to opt-out of contact from AITP and we will comply with such requests. This opt-out of contact from AITP may be offered on our membership application, registration forms, web pages, or at the bottom of on-line or off-line communications from us.
AITP does not electronically store or maintain the financial information provided to it by its members once transactions are applied. Printed financial information provided by its members is maintained according to IRS regulations and stored in a lock-secured area.
Access & Correction
AITP strives to keep your personally identifiable information accurate. We will provide you with access to your information, including making every effort to provide you with online or telephone access to your registration data so that you may review, update or correct your personal information. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you access or enabling you to make corrections.
If you are an AITP member, you can access your personal information by going to the Members Login Area of the AITP web site and, after inputting your user ID and password, select Manage Profile from the right hand menus under “My Profile”; then select Edit Bio under Information and Settings. You may also request a change in your personal information by contacting AITP Headquarters either by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 800-224-9371 or by contacting email@example.com.
All AITP members have access to the general list of members' contact information through the "Members Only": Member Search portion of the AITP website. This information is provided as a means for members to network with one another and must not be used for any other purpose. Email addresses are also masked to protect the privacy of our members. In addition, members have the opportunity to keep other members from seeing their contact information by changing their personal setting in the “My Profile” section of the AITP website by selecting Manage Profile and then selecting Preferences. Members are not permitted to distribute this information in any way to third parties or use it for any commercial purposes, such as spamming. Members who violate these restrictions of use may be subject to dismissal from the organization.
AITP is committed to ensuring the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We use encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data online such as credit card information. Your access to some services and content is password protected. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. AITP will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. You should not disclose your user name and password to others. In addition, if applicable, you should remember to log out of your AITP account or service at the end of each session. You may also wish to close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library.
Even using our best efforts to protect your personal information, AITP cannot completely ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or to or from our online services or benefits. You transmit all such information at your own risk. However, once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
