AMA PDX Privacy Policy

The AMA PDX is committed to protecting your personal information.

Use of IP Address
We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our website.

Site Monitoring & Maintenance
Periodically, we perform site maintenance activities that may disrupt the normal operations of the site. We endeavor to perform routine maintenance during non-peak hours. Occasionally, unforeseen interruptions occur to normal operation of the site. We are committed to correcting these as soon as possible.

User Convenience/Affiliate Partners
Our website includes links to selected Affiliate Partners (designated by the “powered by” logo). In some circumstances, we will forward to our affiliates information to pre-register our users on the affiliate’s site. This is done to reduce the number of clicks for users or to qualify users for various promotional benefits (discounts, etc.).

Affiliate Partners Sites/Trusted Service Providers
Affiliate Partners are responsible for their own policies and procedures during e-commerce transactions. Review the Affiliate Partners’ policies regarding e-commerce transactions on any Affiliate Partner’s site. We are not responsible for products and services transactions that are conducted at any third party websites.

We may also employ other companies and individuals to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples of such services include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail, e-mail and text messages, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance (including direct and targeted marketing), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These Trusted Service Providers have access to selected personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

In certain circumstances, we may share your customer information with Trusted Service Providers that need access to your information to provide operational or other support services. We also may provide information to regulatory authorities and law enforcement officials in accordance with applicable law or when we otherwise believe in good faith that the law requires it.

Your personal information collected during site registration or when you sign up for our membership will not be sold to third parties for e-mail marketing or telemarketing campaigns.

Advertisers
Advertisers on our website, which may include traditional banner-style ads, listings in directories, or advertisements in the newsletter, are responsible for their own policies and procedures during e-commerce transactions. We recommend that you review the advertiser’s policy regarding e-commerce transactions on such advertiser sites. We are not responsible for products and services transactions that are conducted at advertiser websites.

Use of Cookies
When you view our website we might store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a “cookie” or similar file. Cookies are small pieces of information, collected by a web browser and stored on your hard drive, not on our site. Cookies do not spy on you or otherwise invade your privacy, and they cannot invade your hard drive and steal information. Rather, they help you navigate a website more easily.

We use cookies to enhance your experience in using our website, display registered user names on their Personal Home Page, confirm users’ access rights to certain “access restricted” areas of the site, display their content preferences, and improve search functionality. We also use cookies to track visitor traffic by visitor type (aggregated, not individual) for the purpose of understanding what content users find most valuable.

Because we use cookies, we can deliver faster service, consistent, updated results, and a more personalized site experience. You have the option of setting your browser to reject cookies. However, doing this will hinder performance and negatively impact your experience on our site.

Public Forum 
This website may make public chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to you from time to time. We may impose separate terms of use regarding content and activity at such public areas. Further, we may monitor and/or edit posts to those areas. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding whether to disclose any personal information.

Children 
We do not specifically collect online contact information from children nor do we target or sell products for purchase by children.

Security 
This website has industry standard security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. While there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the Internet, we will take reasonable steps to insure the safety of your personal information.

E-Mail and Other Communications from AMA PDX
We offer educational programs and events that may be of use to individual marketers to develop new skills or advance their careers. Information from registration is used to determine whom to contact, typically via e-mail, with an invitation to participate. We may also send text messages to a mobile phone number that you have provided to us. By registering on any AMA PDX site, registering for an AMA PDX online event, providing us your contact information, or otherwise enrolling in this service, you have agreed to be bound by the terms and conditions in this Agreement. If you do not agree with this Agreement, you must immediately cease using these services and contact us as provided below.

For our email communications, AMA members, registered users of any AMA PDX site and other AMA PDX customers may opt out at any time by using the “Unsubscribe” mechanism within the e-mail, which allows email recipients to manage their subscription preferences regarding AMA e-newsletters, e-mail alerts, and special offers. This mechanism does not allow a user to opt out of receiving transactional e-mail, such as registration confirmation, product, service, or membership benefit updates, and responses to direct requests. Content is not available on all carriers, or compatible with all cell phone models. We are not responsible for any delays in sending or receiving text messages.

E-Mail and Other Communications from Local Chapters of the American Marketing Association
For email communications or text message communications produced and delivered by local chapters of the AMA, AMA members may opt out at any time by contacting each local chapter directly. Our national headquarters is not responsible for the creation, delivery, or management of “Unsubscribe” processes for our local chapters.

Our local chapters are solely responsible for implementing and managing processes allowing AMA members to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to local chapter e-mail or text message communications and are responsible for their own full compliance with federal e-mail and text message communications regulations.
