Anonymous Information from General Users. ASCE does not collect personal information from users browsing our web site. Users to the public areas of ASCE's web site browse anonymously. ASCE collects aggregate data from users browsing our web site. ASCE uses this information for purposes of statistical analysis of web site traffic. Aggregate data are only used for internal and marketing purposes, and ASCE does not provide any personal identification information.

Information from ASCE Members, Event Registrants, and Other Customers. There are a number of areas in the ASCE web site where we ask for and collect information about you, including personally identifiable information. Where we do, it is in order to serve you better, or is necessary to accomplish the service you are requesting. Examples include membership information (which may include name, address, email, telephone number and educational and professional experience information), conference and seminar registrations, security identifiers, and product purchase information.

Membership information is used in the ASCE database, which is used to generate ASCE mailing lists. The mailing list may be used in connection with informing you about ASCE services, products, conferences, meetings and events.

Third Party Disclosure. ASCE does not sell or rent email addresses to anyone outside of ASCE and its organizational entities.

General ASCE Web Server Security. All of the ASCE web servers are registered as secure servers using industry-standard certificate techniques. This enables all communication between our servers to be verified when services are requested between computers.

All the personal information collected from you on our site, including names and addresses, is stored behind a "firewall," and defenses have been erected to seek to enhance the protection of your information from outside attack by hackers and curious visitors.


Secure Transactions. For your protection, we have taken a number of steps to maximize the security of financial transactions that are accepted on the ASCE web site. Credit Card processing is accomplished using secure processing services. Your entry of credit card information is encrypted when transmitted in secure mode. If for any reason you still feel uncomfortable submitting your credit card over the Internet, you can mail your information to us.

REGARDLESS OF THE PRECAUTIONS TAKEN BY YOU OR BY ASCE, "PERFECT SECURITY" DOES NOT EXIST ON THE INTERNET. ASCE CANNOT ENSURE OR WARRANT THE SECURITY OF ANY INFORMATION YOU TRANSMIT TO THIS SITE OR ASCE, AND YOU TRANSMIT SUCH INFORMATION AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Such sites are not under the control of ASCE, and ASCE is not responsible for the contents or accuracy of any linked site. Links to other sites do not imply ASCE's endorsement, sponsorship, or approval of the information, products or services on such sites. Your linking to other sites is entirely at your own risk.

3. Input - ASCE prohibits the posting of any defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, anticompetitive, or illegal statements, information or materials on this site and will not be responsible for any such statements, information or materials or resulting liability. If you transmit any information of any kind (including software) to this Web site, you represent, warrant, and agree that you have the unhindered right to do so, that such information does not infringe the copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights of any other person or company, that such information is not confidential or proprietary to you or any other person or company, and that such information does not injure any other person or company.

8. Cookies - A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is the user will be limited in some areas of our site.

9. Log Files - We may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

10. Transactions - We request information from the user for transactions. Here a user must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to complete customer's transactions. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.

11. Security - This website takes every precaution to protect users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything on our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
