1. We obtain only limited personal information from our members. We ask our members for their personal information only to the extent that we need it to ascertain qualification for membership and to provide membership services to them.
2. We limit access to members’ personal information. We use reasonable and industry-standard managerial, physical and electronic security measures to protect and safeguard members’ personal information. We authorize members and management-service-providers access to members’ personal information only on a “need to know” basis. Unless we have your express consent, we will not sell, rent or trade personal information such as membership data or e-mail lists to any third party. We treat all information you provide as confidential. Occasionally, we may contract with other companies to provide limited services on our behalf such as packaging and mailing or web service. If we should be required to provide personal information in response to a valid court order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law, we will, unless prevented by law notify you prior to the release of such information. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We may release certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property and safety of others and ourselves.
3. We prevent unauthorized disclosure of members’ personal information. We advise our members and management service providers to keep members’ personal information strictly private and confidential. We ensure that departing members understand they remain obliged to respect the privacy of members’ personal information. We prohibit disclosure of any member’s personal information to any third party without our member’s explicit consents.
