AGC has created this policy statement to help users of this Web site, www.agc.org, understand how we collect, use, and protect information about them. The term "user" in this policy statement refers to visitors of this Web site. The term "collected information" refers specifically to information collected from this Web site.
Use of Collected Information
AGC's primary objective in collecting user information is to provide the best member and customer service possible. User–specific information that is provided by the user is normally incorporated into AGC's general member and contacts database. AGC uses information in that database, and shares some information in the database with AGC chapters and third–party service providers, for the purpose of executing requested AGC–endorsed products, services, and resources, and for the purpose of notifying users of additional AGC–endorsed products, services, statements, and resources. AGC occasionally shares some collected information with member and nonmember individuals, such as when we provide attendees of an AGC event with a registrants list containing contact information. AGC generally does not sell or trade collected information to third parties specifically for commercial use but does provide limited member information to third parties. This includes, e.g., membership lists shared with reputable organizations with which AGC has an established business relationship, the annually printed AGC Membership Directory, and this site's "Find a Member" service.
Access to Personal Information
Users can access and revise most of the collected information about them by using the Manage My Profile page at www.agc.org/managemyprofile. Additional information may be attainable from AGC's Membership Department by e–mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (703) 548–3118.
Opportunity to Opt Out
Because collected information volunteered by the user is automatically stored in AGC's member and contacts database along with information collected by means other than this site, it is not possible to specifically opt out from the use of collected information. However, users may submit a request to limit marketing or to avoid specific types of communication (e.g., mail, fax, e–mail) or specific AGC publications (e.g., Constructor magazine, News & Views newsletter) by contacting the AGC Membership Department by e–mail at email@example.com or by telephone at (703) 548–3118.
This site and the servers that store collected information have industry–standard security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under AGC's control. Please note, however, that no security system is 100% secure. Authentic AGC Web pages requesting credit card information will be secure Web pages, and sensitive data will be encrypted for transmission. AGC does not knowingly share credit card numbers with third parties except to the extent necessary, and incidental to the purposes, for which the user supplied the information absent user consent.
Links to Other Web Sites
This site contains links to other Web sites, some of which may look similar to this site and appear to be a part of this site. AGC is not responsible for the privacy practices, content, or security of such sites.
Changes to Policy and Deviation from Policy
AGC reserves the right to revise this policy and to use collected information for uses not previously disclosed without prior notice and at any time. If policy changes are made, a revised policy will be posted on this page. If you are concerned about changes to this policy, deviations from this policy, or the use of collected information, please contact Stephen Jefferson, Web Associate, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (703) 837-5434.
