SIA encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from SIA Website so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. SIA is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the SIA Website and SIA family of Web sites.
Use of your Personal Information
SIA collects and uses your personal information to operate the SIA Website and deliver the services you have requested. SIA also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from SIA and its affiliates. SIA may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
SIA does not sell, rent or lease its potential adherent’s lists to third parties. SIA may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, SIA may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide adherent support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to SIA and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within SIA Website to visitors whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
SIA will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on SIA Website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of SIA; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of SIA Website, or the public.
The SIA Website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize SIA Website, or register with SIA Website or services, a cookie helps SIA Website to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same SIA Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the SIA Website features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the SIA Website services or Web sites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
SIA secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. SIA secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
