In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, IAAP may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you emails or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to IAAP, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

IAAP is an international organization headquartered in the United States of America and as such data we have collected from you is maintained outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). We comply with the Data Protection Act 1998. By using this website you consent to the storage of your personal data in systems located outside of the European Economic Area (EEA).

IAAP does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

IAAP keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within IAAP, in order to determine what IAAP services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within IAAP to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

IAAP Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only 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 IAAP or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of IAAP; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of IAAP, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The IAAP Web site uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a 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. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize IAAP pages, or register with IAAP site or services, a cookie helps IAAP to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same IAAP Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the IAAP 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 the IAAP services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

IAAP secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. IAAP secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Maintaining and Removing Your Personal Data

If you have a registered account with IAAP, we provide you with tools to access, correct, and modify the personal data you provided to us.

To request that your data be removed entirely from IAAP's database, please contact
