Privacy Policy

ABAS Law Foundation’s Privacy Notice (Effective: August 1, 2011)

Your personal and informational privacy is important the ABAS Law Foundation (“Foundation”). Accordingly, the Foundation provides this notice explaining its online information practices and how your information might be collected and used. If the Foundation decides to change its privacy policy, those changes will be posted on this page so visitors to the website are always aware of what information the Foundation collects, how that information might be used, and under circumstances, if any, that information might be disclosed.

WHAT TYPES OF INFORMATION ARE COLLECTED

This notice applies to all information collected through or submitted on the Foundation’s website. On various pages on the Foundation’s website, you can make requests or register to receive materials or information. You may also register for one of the Foundation’s events, such as the annual golf tournament and the annual wine and food tasting event. The types of personal information collected at these pages can include:

  • Name
  • Company Name
  • Title/Position
  • Mailing address
  • Email address
  • Phone number(s)

THE WAY THIS INFORMATION MIGHT BE USED

The Foundation uses the information you provide about yourself to send you e-mail announcements including newsletters, monthly updates, press releases, “save-the-date” notices for upcoming events, and sign-up forms. Most of the information you provide is viewable only by the Foundation’s board members, officers, and database administrator. The Foundation will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement, or as required by law.

There are two ways in which the information you submit to the Foundation through the website might be disclosed to, or shared with, persons or organizations other than the Foundation’s board members, officers, and database administrator. First, if you sign up or register to attend an event sponsored by the Foundation, your name might appear on an “event roster.” Such an event roster would be viewable by any person who visits the Foundation’s website. If you prefer that your name not appear on an event roster on the Foundation’s website, you may “opt out” of such disclosure at the time of the sign-up or registration.

Second, the Foundation occasionally partners with other not-for-profit organizations to crosspromote events. Although the Foundation is not inclined to share personal information submitted through the website at all, your name and e-mail address might be shared with the officers, board members, and relevant staff of such organizations at some future time for the limited purpose of promoting public interest oriented events.

OUR COMMITMENT TO DATA SECURITY

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, the Foundation, along with its database administrator, Cake Farm, have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information the Foundation collects online.

COMPUTER TRACKING AND COOKIES

The Foundation’s site logs do generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to the website. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff to provide better service, but the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.
