Section 4. Privacy Use of Personally Identifiable Information

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. We will collect no personal information about you when you visit our web site unless you chose to provide that information to us. We will not forward your information to any other party without your specific consent (except as may be required by law, such as a court-ordered subpoena, search warrant, or other court order; or required by exigent circumstances). We will only use the information you give us for the purpose for which it was collected. Please be aware of this risk when providing information via unencrypted channels. As with any Internet transmission that is not encrypted, the risk of disclosure to unintended third parties exists.

ISACA-CLT reserves the right to perform statistical analyses of user behavior (on an aggregate basis) in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the Site. ISACA-CLT may permit third parties to offer subscription and/or registration-based services through the Site. In this event, ISACA-CLT is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties and users should check the applicable privacy policy of such party before providing personally identifiable information.

ISACA-CLT may store some online registration data for some events. This information will only be used to facilitate registration for the particular local event. PayPal services may be provided as an option on such events to allow credit card payments. PayPal is a third-party and is the world’s largest online payment service.

ISACA-CLT passes specific event information to PayPal; this information is included in an e-mail receipt that is sent by PayPal to the registrant and to the chapter’s event registrar.

Section 5. Links to other Sites

Users may find advertising or other content on the Site that enables linking to the sites of ISACA-CLT advertisers, sponsors and other third parties. These third-party sites may have their own privacy policies or no policy at all. The ISACA-CLT Privacy Policy does not apply to such other sites. ISACA-CLT has no control over the content displayed on such sites, nor over the measures, if any, that are taken by such sites to protect the privacy of user information.

Section 6: General

If any clause or provision set forth above is determined to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under present or future law, then, in that event the clause or provision so determined to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable shall be severable without affecting the enforceability of all remaining clauses or provisions.


Section 7: Passive Online Data Collection
ISACA-CLT also collects certain information passively, such as collecting online, non-identifying information through the use of cookies technology and/or Internet Protocol (IP) address tracking. Non-personal identification information might include the browser used by you, the type of computer, the operating systems, the Internet service providers, and other similar information. The ISACA-CLT system also automatically gathers information about the areas you visit on the Site and about the links you may select from within the Site to other sites. Most browsers are set to accept cookies. You can set yours to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent; however, if you disable cookies, the full functionality of our sites may not be available to you.

On the ISACA-CLT Site, there may be certain third-party advertisers whose advertisements contain cookies that collect data from you. Some of those cookies may contain tracking mechanisms that observe your behavior across multiple Sites. ISACA-CLT does not control the use of cookies by advertisers or third parties displaying data on the Site or on the sites you visit using links from the Site.


Section 8: Security

ISACA-CLT uses reasonable measures to safeguard sensitive personally identifiable information, which measures are appropriate to the type of information maintained, and follows applicable laws regarding safeguarding any such information under our control. In addition, in some areas of our Site, ISACA-CLT may use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption technology to enhance data privacy and help prevent loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under ISACA-CLT control.

ISACA-CLT cannot guarantee, however, that your information will remain secure. The Internet by its nature is a public forum, and ISACA-CLT encourages you to use caution when disclosing information online. Often, you are in the best situation to protect yourself online. You are responsible for protecting your username and password from third party access, and for selecting passwords that are secure.
