SOUTH FLORIDA IMA makes the Site and various offers related to South Florida IMA and/or the Site available to those individuals who register directly with the Site or at SFIMA events (“Registrants”), subject to this Privacy Policy (the “Policy”). This Policy explains what information SOUTH FLORIDA IMA collects about its Registrants, how SOUTH FLORIDA IMA uses and/or shares this information, and how such information is maintained.

Collection of Personally Identifiable Information

Examples of PII that may be requested and/or collected include: first and last name, title, address, email address, telephone number, gender, age, education, and household income. From time to time, SOUTH FLORIDA IMA may also present opportunities for Registrants to voluntarily provide additional information about themselves. SOUTH FLORIDA IMA video records and photographs its events for posting on the Site and other sites. Registrants at events are recorded in those videos and photographs.

Use and Sharing of PIISOUTH FLORIDA IMA reserves the right to use Registrant PII: (1) for the specific purpose for which such information was provided, for example on the Site, in order to be a subscriber to the SOUTH FLORIDA IMA email newsletter; (2) as disclosed at the time such information is provided; and/or (3) as disclosed in this Policy. However, please note that SOUTH FLORIDA IMA may change this Policy at any time (See “Changes to this Policy,” below), and that therefore SOUTH FLORIDA IMA may in the future use Registrant PII for additional purposes not currently included in this Policy.

Registrant PII collected by us may be added to our databases and used for future marketing purposes. By using the Site, you agree that you may be contacted in any manner contemplated in this section even if your number is found on a do not call registry, in-house list or similar registry.

From time to time SOUTH FLORIDA IMA contracts with third parties to conduct marketing promotions, sweepstakes and other promotions. The PII collected from such promotions may be used for any purpose disclosed in this policy or in the rules to the specific promotion.

SOUTH FLORIDA IMA may share Registrant PII in aggregate, non-personal form, with select companies that wish to reach a particular Registrant target audience.

SOUTH FLORIDA IMA may disclose Registrant PII in order to: (1) comply with applicable laws (including, without limitation, the CAN-SPAM Act); (2) respond to governmental inquiries; (3) comply with valid legal process; and (4) protect the rights or property of SOUTH FLORIDA IMA, including without limitation, filing copyright applications with the Library of Congress, Copyright Office.

CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS

Non-Personally Identifiable InformationSOUTH FLORIDA IMA also collects certain non-personally identifiable information, including the non-personally identifiable information more fully described below.

Cookies. SOUTH FLORIDA IMA may use “cookies” on the Site. Cookies are small pieces of information that SOUTH FLORIDA IMA’s server places on an individual’s computer hard drive to enable the individual to more easily communicate and interact with the Site. For example, SOUTH FLORIDA IMA may place a cookie on a Registrant’s computer when he/she initially clicks on a link in an email from SOUTH FLORIDA IMA. The next time that Registrant opens an email from SOUTH FLORIDA IMA and clicks on the link, SOUTH FLORIDA IMA’s server will recognize the cookie (and the Registrant) and allow the Registrant to perform certain actions immediately without signing in.

While some Web browsers allow a Registrant to automatically reject all cookies or be notified when a cookie is about to be placed on the Registrant’s computer, disabling this feature may compromise the efficiency and added services that cookies provide.

IP Address. SOUTH FLORIDA IMA collects your IP (Internet Protocol) address to help diagnose problems with its server, and to administer the Site and SOUTH FLORIDA IMA email offers. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. Your IP address is also used to help identify you during a particular session and to gather broad demographic data.

Although the information collected through the foregoing methods does not itself contain any PII, SOUTH FLORIDA IMA may analyze and match such information with other information that you provide (including PII) as well as information that SOUTH FLORIDA IMA may obtain elsewhere, and SOUTH FLORIDA IMA may share all or some of such information with partners, prospective partners, and other third parties.

SOUTH FLORIDA IMA may also disclose non-personally identifiable information in order to (1) comply with applicable laws, (2) respond to governmental inquiries, (3) comply with valid legal process, or (4) protect the rights or property of SOUTH FLORIDA IMA or its Registrants and users of the Site.

Opt-Out of SOUTH FLORIDA IMA Media Promotions
During registration, Registrants will have the option to not receive promotional offers and updates, via emails, from SOUTH FLORIDA IMA and our partners. In order to not receive such promotional offers and updates, Registrants must elect that option, where indicated.

If a Registrant chooses to receive promotional offers and updates, Registrant may, at any time thereafter, choose to discontinue receiving promotional emails from SOUTH FLORIDA IMA or the Site by following the “unsubscribe” instructions in the applicable email. Notwithstanding the foregoing, SOUTH FLORIDA IMA may continue to contact Registrants for the purpose of communicating information about their registration with SOUTH FLORIDA IMA or similar information relating to SOUTH FLORIDA IMA, the Site or their registration, as well as to facilitate, complete or confirm any transaction that Registrants enter into or in response to or fulfillment of Registrants’ inquiries or requests.

SOUTH FLORIDA IMA will NOT knowingly distribute such information to third parties.

Security

Registrants and users acknowledge this risk when communicating with SOUTH FLORIDA IMA.
