ISITC PRIVACY POLICY

Last Updated: December 2014

The INTERNATIONAL SECURITIES ASSOCIATION FOR INSTITUTIONAL TRADE COMMUNICATION (“ISITC”) is committed to protecting the privacy of its members and other visitors to the ISITC.org website (“the Site”). To protect online privacy, ISITC has implemented, and by your access to the Site you are consenting to, the information collection and use practices described in this Privacy Policy (“Policy”).

Collecting Personal Information

From General Users. We do not collect any information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”) from users browsing the Site. Only aggregate data, which does not include Personal Information, is collected from such users.

From Members, Conference Registrants and Other Customers. We will ask you when we need Personal Information or other information that allows us to contact you to provide a service or carry out a transaction that you have requested, such as registering to become an ISITC member, sponsor, exhibitor or conference attendee, or soliciting comments and/or votes. The Personal Information we collect includes your name, title, company or organization name, office e-mail address, office telephone number, office mailing address, information about your job function, information about your company, and, if you purchase products or services from us, credit card information.

The Site may collect certain anonymous information about your visit, such as the name of the Internet service provider and the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address through which you access the Internet; the date and time you access the Site; the pages that you access while at the Site and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to our site. This information is used to help improve the Site, analyze trends, and administer the Site and is not sold or distributed in any other manner.

Use of Your Personal Information
The Personal Information voluntarily provided by you and collected on this Site will be used to operate the Site and to provide the service(s) or carry out the transaction(s) you have requested or authorized.

In support of these uses, ISITC may use Personal Information to provide you with more effective customer service, to improve the Site and any related ISITC services, and to make the Site easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information or by customizing the Site to your particular preference or interests.

We may use your personal information to provide you with important information about updated industry or market practices which may affect your business, including critical updates and notifications. Additionally, with your permission, we may send you information about other ISITC products and services, and/or share information with ISITC partners so they may send you information about their products and services. ISITC does not disclose credit card account information provided by its members and customers; rather, when members and customers choose to pay using their credit cards, ISITC submits the information needed to obtain payment to the appropriate clearinghouse.

ISITC occasionally engages other companies, consultants and contractors to provide limited services on its behalf, such as Web site hosting, packaging, public relations, mailing, answering customer questions about products and services, and sending information about our products and other new services. We will only provide those companies the Personal Information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

ISITC may disclose Personal Information 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 ISITC or the Site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ISITC; or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of ISITC members or member institutions, users of ISITC market practice documents, or members of the public.

Personal Information collected on the Site may be stored, hosted and processed in the United States or any other country in which ISITC or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using the Site, you consent to any such transfer of Personal Information outside of your country, including to countries outside of the European Union.

Control of Your Personal Information
Except as otherwise described in this Statement, Personal Information you provide on the Site will not be shared outside of ISITC and affiliates without your permission.

Access to Your Personal Information
Personal Information may be collected by Cognito, an ISITC vendor. It is stored at Cognito, plus sent back to ISITC. You can review and edit your Personal Information collected on the Site by sending an e-mail to usainfo@isitc.org or in writing to:

Security of Your Personal Information
ISITC is committed to protecting the security of your Personal Information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the Personal Information you provide on computer servers with limited access that are located in controlled facilities. Additionally, when we transmit sensitive Personal Information (such as a credit card account number) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Cookies
We use cookies on this Site to ensure the integrity of the registration process and to personalize the Site. A cookie is a small 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. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of delivering relevant content, eases site navigation, and so on. When you return to the web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the site’s 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 this Site or other web sites you visit.

Links to Other Sites
This Site may contain links to other web sites. ISITC has no control over and is not responsible for the privacy policies or content of such sites.

Changes to This Privacy Policy
We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When we do, we will also revise the “last updated” date at the top of the Policy. For material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you either by placing a prominent notice on the home page of the Site or by directly sending you a notification. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the Personal Information we collect. Your continued use of the Site constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy in its current form.
