Auditing Alliance Privacy Policy
Effective Date June 1, 2020

Introduction

The Auditing Alliance values the privacy of its members, affiliates, and visitors to its website and is committed to each visitor’s right to privacy. We work hard to maintain the confidentiality of your personal data. Our efforts to protect your financial and personal interactions with us are described below. By accessing www.AuditingAlliance.com, you acknowledge and fully understand the Auditing Alliance’s Privacy Policy and freely consent to the information collection and use practices in this Privacy Policy Statement.

Consent

By using the Auditing Alliance’s website, you signify your acceptance of our privacy policy. If you, as a visitor, choose to log on as a member, register for courses or events, purchase products, apply for membership or certification, or otherwise submit personally identifiable information, you are consenting to the Auditing Alliance's use of such data in accordance with its privacy policy.

Membership Number and Password
All individual Auditing Alliance members (not organizations) are entered into the membership database and are assigned a unique membership number. When members log on to the website, they will be asked to enter their e-mail address and to create a unique password to authenticate their membership.

Collection and Use of Data
Even if you do nothing during your visit other than navigate the Auditing Alliance website, read pages, or download information, we will automatically gather and store certain information about your visit. In order to ensure our websites are as useful and effective an information source as they can be, we analyze information that identifies visitors by categories such as the location of visitors (by domain, not by personal email address) and browser types. We also measure, in the aggregate, indicators such as number of visits, average time spent on the sites, and pages viewed. The Auditing Alliance uses these statistics to improve site content and usability; this information does not identify visitors personally.

However, when a visitor enters an email address and password obtained by the means described above on an Auditing Alliance website for the purpose of logging in to restricted pages, a "temporary cookie" is deployed. This cookie - a small text file stored temporarily on the visitor's browser - enables the website to "remember" this authentication information during movement from one page to another. This makes it unnecessary to log in again on each page. The cookie will expire when the visitor leaves and no personal data is retained. In addition, to help prevent unauthorized users from using your identifying information, the cookie will expire if your session is idle for approximately 20 minutes. If you have set your Internet browser to reject cookies, access may be denied to secured areas of The Auditing Alliance's websites.
With the exception of specific secured pages, visitors are not required to be Auditing Alliance members in order to gain access to The Auditing Alliance’s website.

The Auditing Alliance may use personally identifiable information you have voluntarily provided on our websites or by other means to notify you via e-mail or printed material of Auditing Alliance events or other relevant products and services offered by the Auditing Alliance. If you are a member of an industry group or region, the Auditing Alliance may produce a directory of such participants for networking purposes. If you do not want to receive notice of such events or be included in specialty directories, you may choose to opt out by the means detailed in the "Opting Out" section of this policy.

Personal data that is processed when you provide feedback and other information in our forums: If you participate in surveys, provide comments, suggestions, feedback, or other information in one of our forums, we will collect any personal information contained in any content you provide. Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal data online in a forum accessible by others, that personal data can be collected and used by others. If you post personal data online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Please exercise caution whenever you post information online.

The Auditing Alliance will not share your contact information with third parties without your permission.

Purposes and Legal Grounds

The Auditing Alliance processes your comments, suggestions, feedback, and other information for the purpose of providing our customers with the opportunity share such content with other customers. The legal ground for processing this information for this purpose is the Auditing Alliance’s legitimate interest in enabling our customers to provide comments, suggestions, feedback, and other information they desire to share with Auditing Alliance and other Auditing Alliance members.

Disclosure of Information for Legal Reasons
The Auditing Alliance will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of the Auditing Alliance if the Alliance has a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
•    Meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
•    Enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
•    Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
•    Protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of the Auditing Alliance, our members or the public as required or permitted by law.

There are other instances in which the Auditing Alliance may divulge your personal information. The Auditing Alliance may provide your personal information if necessary, in the Auditing Alliance's good faith judgment, to comply with laws or regulations of a governmental or regulatory body or in response to a valid subpoena, warrant or order, or to protect the rights of the Auditing Alliance or others.

Disclosure of Sensitive Personal Information to Third Parties
The Auditing Alliance requires opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information. Sensitive personal information is a particular category of personal information relating to confidential medical facts, racial or ethnic origins, political or religious beliefs or sexuality.

Right of Access

The Auditing Alliance is dedicated to providing reasonable access to members and others who want to review their personal information maintained by the Auditing Alliance and correct any inaccuracies therein. Members may view and update their data by accessing their Member Profile, available upon logging in to www.AuditingAlliance.com. Members and non-members may verify and/or change their data by emailing info@AuditingAlliance.com. The Auditing Alliance, however, is not responsible for verifying the continued accuracy of either member or non-member information.

Security
Although the Auditing Alliance does not monitor the websites, the Auditing Alliance has reasonable policies in place to protect from misuse the personally identifiable information provided by its users.

We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures designed to assist in maintaining the security and confidentiality of personal data; safeguarding against anticipated threats to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of personal data; and protecting your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, and unauthorized disclosure or access. Such technical and organizational measures include all applicable security requirements in accordance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.

However, whenever personal data is processed, there is a risk that such data could be lost, misused, modified, hacked, breached, and/or otherwise accessed by an unauthorized third party.  No system or online transmission of data is completely secure. In addition to the technical and organizational measures that Wild Apricot has in place to protect your personal data, you should use appropriate security measures to protect your personal data.  If you believe that your Wild Apricot account or any information you provided to us is no longer secure, notify us immediately at info@AuditingAlliance.com, include “Privacy” in the subject line.
