Users can find out about changes in this privacy policy by visiting this page. This statement was last revised on July 17, 2009. CPNP encourages users to read this policy thoroughly and use it as a point of reference for the future.

Browser Cookies

Our site uses cookies to keep track of your visit to our website. This cookie is restricted to access only by the CPNP website and doesn't contain any confidential information such as credit card numbers. The site may use cookies to restrict access to some content. CPNP members who elect to visit the site with the cookies option turned off in their browser might not be able to access restricted content.

Log Files

Browser type, IP address, referring address, access time, transfer rate, and files accessed are collected in log files. CPNP uses this information to analyze traffic on the site and then discards the log files. Aggregate information generated from the log files may be shared or posted on the site.

Personally Identifiable Information

The site collects personally identifiable information when you fill out the following forms: membership application, abstract submission, and meeting registration. The information collected includes name, title, home address, business address, e-mail, and credit card number. Some of this information may be shared on this site as a part of the membership listing. You may restrict the information shown. We use member information from the forms to send EMail, newsletters and event announcements. A credit card processing company is used to process credit cards. All credit card information is used only for billing purposes and is not stored or retained by CPNP. Members may choose to decline receiving future mailings. Aggregated demographic information will be compiled and shared.

Please read the privacy policies of the external sites since their privacy practices may differ in substantial ways from CPNP's.

Survey Information

Security

Maintaining the integrity and security of all data collected CPNP is obviously very important. Credit card information is transmitted in encrypted form. Personally identifiable information is stored with password protection. CPNP has a strict password rotation policy that is clearly communicated to all staff. Routine backups are made and stored in a secure site that is physically removed from the primary databases to permit recovery in case of a disaster.
