Data We Collect
We review contact form submissions for a certain period for customer service purposes, but we do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes except with your permission for our testimonials.
We do use your membership data for our membership directory and for our email system. You have the option to opt out without listing your email or telephone number. We do NOT share your membership data with anyone outside of our organization. In addition, we safeguard your membership data with limited access by two executive Board members (President & Vice President) and our Membership Chair and Web Chair, who maintains the email system.
For members or visitors who register for our conferences, classes or monthly programs, we only use the registration data for compiling attendance lists for our instructors and to send the online and handout information to attendees. Additionally, we add class visitor names and email addresses to our email system. This is for our visitors, who want to receive emails on our future conferences, classes and workshops.

We record many of our monthly meetings and classes, provided the outside speaker has given us permission to do so. We only share the video securely via a video link through our direct email system or using our members only webpages.
We do collect website metrics via Google Analytics and Webalyzer software, but only in recording number of visitors, what cities visit our website, and how many and what webpages are visited on a monthly basis.
We do use security software that records IP addresses and locations of users who violate Federal regulations or try to hack our website, which is automatically reported back to our ISP and in some cases, federal authorities.
