The AAPD collects personal information for its Membership database to ensure effective and timely communication with all Members with respect to AAPD business, membership issues, meetings, and other issues considered to be of interest to members as approved by the Executive according to the AAPD Constitution and By-Laws as amended from time to time. As a Member, you have access to the information stored about you at any time via your secure login, and can modify and update your own information. Your personal information will be collected and maintained confidentially. If you have any concerns or wish to restrict access to your personal information please discuss these with the AAPD.
We know that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly.
By visiting our web site, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.
Information you give us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customising future membership sign up process, improving our site, and communicating with you.
Other information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use “cookies,” to track your sign up process and when you are logged onto our site. If you have cookies switched off you will not be able to purchase from this site.
E-mail communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we may receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from us if your computer supports such capabilities.
Information from other sources: For reasons such as improving personalisation of our service (for example, providing better product recommendations or special offers that we think will interest you), we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. We also sometimes receive updated delivery and address information from our shippers or other sources so that we can correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily.
We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law or to protect the rights, property, or safety of our business, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts sensitive financial information you input during the ordering process.
You can always choose not to provide information by not completing web forms and turning your cookies off. You will not be able to purchase on the site while cookies are switched off.
The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.
