From IMSA Members, Conference Registrants, and Other Customers. To gain access to members-only resources and personalization features on imsasafety.org, members and other users are asked to register and provide some limited information.

Similar information may be submitted to IMSA through membership applications, conference or seminar registration, publication orders, subscriptions, and contest registrations. Additionally, for some e-mails sent in HTML format by IMSA to its members through its listservs and electronic newsletters, we will collect specific information regarding what the recipient does with that email. For those emails, IMSA may monitor whether a recipient subsequently clicks through to links provided in the message. Other information collected through this tracking feature includes: email address of a user, the date and time of the user's "click," a message number, name of the list from which the message was sent, tracking URL number and destination page. IMSA only uses this information to enhance its products and distribution of those products to its members. This information is not sold or distributed in any other manner.

How Does IMSA Use Data Collected?

IMSA uses information voluntarily submitted by members and other customers in the following ways:

IMSA Member Services and Products. Generally, IMSA uses data collected to improve its own web content; to respond to visitors' interests, needs and preferences; and to develop new products and services.

Disclosures to Third Parties. IMSA also makes member contact information available through the IMSA Membership Directory to other members using its Web site and to those who register for its conferences.
