Privacy Policy

ONLINE PRIVACY POLICY

General

The purpose of this policy is to inform you about the information collected from visitors to the Telecommunications Industry Association (“TIA”) website and social/digital media platforms (“platforms”), and how TIA treats this information. TIA is firmly committed to protecting the privacy and security of personal information provided by visitors. By using our website, you agree to this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree, please do not use our website.

Information Collected

You can visit TIA’s website and platforms without providing any personal information to TIA. In that case, only technical, non-personal information such as your IP address and computer information is automatically collected. This information allows TIA to evaluate how visitors use our website and for site management. You can visit our website and choose to provide personal information such as your name, email address, telephone number, current employer, and, at times, credit card information when registering for TIA events or purchasing TIA or other publications.

Uses of Information Collected

TIA does not share personally identifiable technical information with others. TIA uses personal information you voluntarily provide to send emails to you to market and promote TIA membership, events and publications, and the events and publications of others; to send emails to you about TIA’s activities; and to invite you to participate in voluntary surveys or similar information gathering inquiries.  In addition, we may share lists with your personal contact information, excluding any credit card or financial information, with others. TIA reserves the right to disclose visitor information pursuant to lawful court or administrative orders and to the extent required for TIA to investigate claims of site misuse or fraud.

Privacy of Children

Protecting the privacy of children is particularly important. TIA does not knowingly collect personal information about children, and will delete that information if it becomes aware that it has been collected. TIA’s website and social/digital media platforms are intended for adults.

Use of Cookies

TIA’s website uses cookies, or identifiers placed on a visitor’s computer to facilitate communication between the visitor’s computer and the website, to store and track log-in information. TIA does not use cookies to disseminate information about visitors to third parties. TIA may analyze information visitors provide in conjunction with TIA cookies. Visitors can modify the settings on their web browsers to set preferences for the cookies they wish to accept. Visitors do not have to allow cookies to access TIA’s website, but certain features may not be accessible.

Changing or Updating Personal Information

Visitors may change, update or delete an email address, or opt out of TIA’s marketing email distribution lists by contacting  membership@tiaonline.org. Pursuant to the CAN-Spam Act, TIA reserves the right to contact anyone with whom we have a commercial relationship regarding transactional or relationship content that facilitates an already agreed-upon transaction or updates a customer about an ongoing transaction.

Security/Disclaimer of Liability

TIA takes reasonable steps to ensure the security of information it collects on line, and stores the information in limited-access servers.  No website is completely safe from unauthorized access, no information transmitted over the internet is completely secure, and no access or service provided by TIA’s website will be without any errors. TIA does not guarantee the security of the information you provide and disclaims any and all liability relating to the security of information and to the functionality of its website.
