The only personal information collected by the Alliance is personal information that is voluntarily provided by member organizations or users of our Services. We don’t sell your personal information to third parties, such as telemarketers, mailing list brokers, or other companies that are not offering Alliance endorsed services or benefits. However, we will use your personal information to fulfill requests made by you and for other business purposes of the Alliance and any of its successors. Our board, staff, consultants and advisors may have access to your personal information for the business purposes of the organization. We may share your personal information with certain third parties to provide certain of the Services to you, to send you marketing materials or other information about the Alliance, or for the purpose of providing potentially relevant information to you.
For example, you may provide personal information to us to register for an online account or to use our Services. The information you provide will be used by us to give you the information or service you are requesting, and may be provided to partners with which we work to provide Services or to send information about educational opportunities, member benefits, or conferences. We may also use your name, phone number, email address, or mailing address to send you marketing materials and other information about the Alliance and its products and services, or other products or services that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any additional information at alliance1.org/contact-us/webmaster.
No email addresses will be published in the online directory of members, which is available to the general public. Conference and meeting registrants and Alliance committee members and their contact information will not be posted publicly on the Alliance Websites, but may be shared with other attendees of the conference or meeting for networking and information sharing purposes.
In addition, certain members, exhibitors, and certain partner organizations of the Alliance may have selected access to certain personal information. Agreements or contracts with these organizations or individuals require them to keep the member information strictly confidential
and prohibit them from using it for any other purpose than that agreed upon.

Third Party Service Providers
The Alliance works with certain third parties that provide services on our Websites, or in connection with our Services. These third parties may collect personal and non-personal information from users of our Services. For example, monetary transactions may be facilitated by a third party payment processor, in which case you and/or the Alliance would share your information, including information about your financial accounts, with the processor for this
purpose. We encourage our users to read the privacy policies of any third parties. The Alliance is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of any third parties. If you have questions about who provides services for our Websites, or our Services, please do not hesitate to contact us.
When you submit information via our Services, we take efforts to protect your information both online and offline. Keep in mind, however, that whenever you give out personal information online, such information is not always secure in transit. While we strive to protect your privacy and secure your information, we cannot guarantee the security of information sent electronically or over the internet, and you disclose such information at your own risk.
