This Site is governed by the laws and regulations of the United States. If you are not a resident of the U.S. and you choose to join the Alliance for Women in Media or to participate in Alliance for Women in Media events and activities that require the submission of your Personal Information, you hereby freely consent to the transfer and processing of your Personal Information to the U.S. and you consent to be governed by the laws and the regulations of the U.S. with regard to the use of your Personal Information.
We collect Personal Information both online and offline . The Site provides certain activities where we gather Personal Information from users of the Site, such as an activity that requires that a user complete registration process (such as a membership application or conference or event registration) and receive/select a “user name” and password. Registration to participate in these Site activities may require the submission of your email address, zip code, date of birth and other Personal Information. Other Personal Information that may be submitted include your gender, industry position, occupation/role, to name a few. You will also have the ability to opt-in to additional subscription services, such as email news alerts, and promotional and marketing information to be received directly from our third party sponsors.
We collect credit or debit card account information from members and other individuals to pay for dues, Alliance for Women in Media events fees, publications, and donations to the Foundation, among other things. For payments made offline, we submit the Personal Information needed to secure payment to the appropriate clearinghouse. If payment is submitted online, we use an authorized third party operational service provider to collect and process your Sensitive Personal Information in a reasonably secure manner. Our operational service provider may also collect the security code associated with the credit or debit card. When members or other individuals choose to pay by check, we do not store checking account information. Payment information is retained for administrative and tax purposes.
If you are a member of the Alliance for Women in Media, we also use your name and contact information you choose to share with us in our online membership directory for the members of the Alliance for Women in Media. Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in the directory. Online access to the directory is password protected and restricted for use only by Alliance for Women in Media members and staff.
Unless otherwise provided in a separate registration page, we do not request contact information for a mobile phone, text messaging or any wireless device that includes a domain name address (such as “verizon.com”) as part of the contact information. Federal law prohibits the sending of commercial email messages directly to a wireless device that uses a domain name, unless you have first given your affirmative consent. We may inadvertently collect a wireless device number that includes a domain name when you send us an inquiry or register for an event. However, we will not knowingly use that contact information for sending commercial email. We reserve the right to respond to user inquiries or requests sent via a wireless device that uses a domain name as such messages are not deemed to be commercial email and therefore, are not regulated by Federal law.
You can be assured that personal information collected through the Site is secure and is maintained in a manner consistent with current industry standards. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through our Site cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.
We use your Personal Information to provide you with the features, services, or goods you request and to respond to questions related to the Alliance for Women in Media or our Site. We will also use your Personal Information to notify you about updates, new features, programming and activities on behalf of the Alliance for Women in Media, the Site, or our sponsors that may be of interest to you.

We may also use your information for operational and business purposes, or to find out how we can improve our Site via surveys or online tracking mechanisms. We use aggregate Personal Information collected directly during the registration process and via cookies to help us evaluate and modify existing services and features, as well as provide demographic and geographic information to our sponsors. We also use your Personal Information to develop new services and features that may be of interest to you.

You should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected on the Site through the use of “cookies.” “Cookies” are small text files (no larger than 4k) stored as text on a computer hard drive. Websites can use “cookies” to recognize repeat visitors, facilitate the visitor's ongoing access to and use of the site, and allow a site to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements. “Cookies” are not programs that come onto a visitor's system and damage files. The use of “cookies” is common in the Internet industry, and many major websites use them to provide useful features to their customers. Generally “cookies” work by assigning a unique number to the visitor that has no meaning outside the assigning site. If a visitor does not want information collected through the use of “cookies,” there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the visitor to deny or accept the cookie feature. Alliance for Women in Media uses “cookie” technology but only to obtain non-personal information from online visitors in order to improve their online experience and facilitate their visit within the Site.
