WITH WHOM DO WE SHARE THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Our Service Providers
We may share your personal information with companies (including our affiliates) that perform services on our behalf. Our service providers are required by contract to protect the confidentiality of the personal information we share with them and to use it only to provide specific services on our behalf.
Credit Card Account Information
IDSA does not disclose credit card account information provided by its members and customers. When members and customers choose to pay using their credit cards, IDSA submits the information needed to secure payment to the appropriate clearinghouse.
Selected Collaborative Partners and Vendors
IDSA may share information with carefully selected collaborative partners in the following circumstances:
Mailing List: IDSA may rent its mailing list to third parties, who use the list to inform our members of educational opportunities and services that may be of interest to them. The information provided includes your name, society-assigned member number, organization, department, and mailing address. IDSA does not rent its e-mail list or provide phone numbers of members, except as noted here. IDSA reviews each list rental request on a case-by-case basis to ensure that the information being sent is relevant to our members.
Email List: IDSA may share its email list with selected third party collaborative partners and vendors whose products and services may be of interest to our members. Each arrangement to share IDSA’s email list is reviewed on a case-by-case basis to ensure that the products and services offered are relevant to our members. All recipients can opt-out of receiving promotional emails from IDSA collaborative partners by following the unsubscribe/opt-out instructions included on each email message.
