The Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) is committed to protecting the privacy of its members and customers. A&WMA recognizes the interest of its members and customers in the confidentiality of their personal information. A&WMA only maintains personal information that is relevant to A&WMA activities and seeks to maintain accurate, complete, and timely information.
The security of personal information is important to A&WMA. A&WMA maintains all personal data with technical, administrative, and physical safeguards to protect against loss, unauthorized access, destruction, misuse, modification, and improper disclosure. No computer system or information can ever be fully protected against every possible hazard, but A&WMA provides reasonable and appropriate security controls to protect personal information against foreseeable hazards.
A&WMA maintains member databases that contain mailing, billing, and member profile information, as well as a record of each member's product and service purchases. A&WMA also maintains databases of member and non-member purchases and of registrations for conferences and other A&WMA activities. The information in these databases is used by authorized A&WMA staff members to process orders; mail invoices, purchases, renewal notices, and announcements; respond to member inquiries; and help us improve our offerings. Member records are maintained as long as an individual is an A&WMA member and for two years following a membership lapse. Purchases and credit card transactions are retained for as long as appropriate to meet contractual, tax, or auditing needs.
All personally identifiable information contained in A&WMA membership, purchase, and registration databases is treated as confidential and will be used only for the purposes stated in this policy, except where required by law.
