ASBA Understands How Important
Privacy Is to Our Members
We are committed to protecting your privacy and want to make sure that you understand how your membership information is used. We also want you to be aware that you have choices about how we use this information.
What Information We Collect
When you apply for membership, we ask for basic information such as your name, contact information, and date of birth. We keep track of your participation in ASBA activities and member services so we can understand our members' interests and evaluate the effectiveness of our offerings. We also collect demographic information from other sources to help us learn more about member characteristics and needs. All of this information helps us better serve our members and improve our programs.
We share your personal information only with companies we have selected to provide official ASBA member services or support ASBA operations. Some of the providers of ASBA member services, including many of those listed on our Member Discounts and Services area, pay a fee for access to our membership list. Our contracts with these companies require them to keep the member information strictly confidential, and allow them to use the information only to offer the contracted services to ASBA and ASBA members.
Other ASBA affiliates, such as the ASBA Scholarship Foundation, may also have access to member information. Finally, we may release personal member information on the rare occasions when we are required to do so by law, or when necessary or appropriate to comply with legal process or to protect or defend ASBA and its members. We do not sell or rent member information to telemarketers, mailing list brokers, or any other companies that are not offering ASBA-endorsed services or benefits.
We respect your choices. If you do not want us to share your information with providers of ASBA member services, you can contact us as specified below. You should then stop receiving ASBA service provider mailings in about six to eight weeks. (Note: If you request services or information from an ASBA service provider directly, we may still need to confirm to the provider that you are an eligible ASBA member). You may also elect not to receive information about ASBA activities, such as legislative events and educational programs, or about the activities of other ASBA affiliates like the ASBA Foundation.
