When you visit this Site, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you (such as your name, address, telephone number, social security number, billing and shipping information, credit card information or e-mail address) unless you provide it to us voluntarily. In addition, some of our pages and interactive advertisements may invite visitors to submit names, e-mail addresses or addresses of others in connection with certain promotions or offers that appear on our Site or interactive advertisements. If you opt not to provide us with personally identifiable information, no material consequences will result, although you may be unable to participate in certain promotions, receive product information, or participate in any transactions through this Site. Parties wishing to participate in any transactions through the Site are required to provide the Association with a variety of necessary and personally identifiable information.
The Association may store and process your personally identifiable information to better understand your needs and how we may improve our services, and we may use your personally identifiable information to contact you (for example, we may send you marketing or promotional materials or other information, we may respond to your comments or requests for information, or we may contact you if needed in the course of processing your requests). The Association may also use your personally identifiable information in accordance with any agreements that you may have entered into with the Association. The Association will not give or sell your personally identifiable information to any outside organization for the organization’s own use apart from the Association, or unless as permitted under any other agreement that you may have with the Association. Subject to applicable law, we and our service providers (as defined herein) disclose and share your personal information: among the Association and its business associates; to unaffiliated third parties that are under contract to perform services for or on behalf of the Association (e.g., vendors hosting this Site, e-mail fulfillment services, and the like); to a third party as set forth in “Transfer of Business Assets”; and to other persons as permitted or required by applicable law or regulation. Nothing in the Privacy Statement shall be deemed to prohibit the Association from disclosing your identity if the Association is required by law to do so.
The Association will make reasonable efforts to keep secure the data you provide us and will take reasonable precautions, such as using a secure server, in an effort to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse or alteration. Agents or hosting contractors of the Association who have access to your personally identifiable information in connection with providing services for the Association are required to keep the information confidential and are not permitted to use this information for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for the Association. The Association cannot, however, be liable for any security breaches, either by the Association or any third party, as discussed in greater detail below.
The Association intends that this site be used by adults and does not want to collect personal information from minors (children under 13 years of age, or any other age defined under applicable law). If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child may contact us at the e-mail address or address provided by this Site ([email protected]) if they would like this information deleted from our records. We will use reasonable efforts to delete the child’s information from our databases.

The Association may provide links to Web pages which are not part of the Association. These sites are not under Association control and the Association is not responsible for the information or links you may find there. The Association is providing these links only as a convenience. The presence of these links on any Association Site is not intended to imply Association endorsement of that site but to provide a convenient link to relevant sites which are managed by other organizations, companies, or individuals.
Although the Association will use reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure and this Site cannot be absolutely protected against unauthorized intrusion. The Association will have no liability for disclosure of information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized or negligent acts of third parties. In addition, the Association will release specific information about you to comply with any valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of security or a physical threat to you or others.
Please note that if you give out personally identifiable information online that information can be collected and used by third parties. Although we strive to protect our users’ privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of information you post in these forums. You disclose such information at your own risk.
As we continue to develop the Association, we might acquire, buy or merge with other businesses or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that the Association or substantially all of its assets are acquired, both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information will be one of the transferred assets.
