How We Collect Personal Information and How It Is Used
In general, if you visit our website to access information, you do so anonymously. We do not require you to register or provide personal information (with the exception of the "members-only" area) to view our Site nor do we share or sell any of the information we collect to any ad server companies or other parties. Our Web server will not automatically recognize any visitor's information regarding the domain or email address. The Guild may collect the email or postal addresses of those who communicate with us via email, survey information and/or Site registrations, name and address, telephone number, fax number, payment information (e.g., credit card number and billing address).
Information submitted to the Guild through the Site is kept confidential and is never shared except as required by law. It may at times be used to provide you with further information about the Guild. These communications may be sent by email, postal mail, fax or otherwise. Persons who supply us with their telephone numbers online will only receive telephone contact from us with information regarding orders they have placed online. The Guild may collect and share non-identifying and aggregate information, but not personal information with other parties. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, phone number, date of birth, or social security number, and this is not otherwise publicly available.
When we transfer and receive certain types of sensitive information such as financial or employment information, we redirect visitors to a secure server and will notify visitors via a message on our Site. We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our Site.
We also collect and retain personal information when you register material on the Guild's website for the purposes of asserting intellectual property rights or declaring dues or utilizing other website services. When you register we ask you for information such as your name, email address, birth date and zip code. For some services we may also ask for your Social Security number. Once you register with us and sign in to your web site you are not anonymous to us.
If you do not wish to receive communications from the Guild, please send us an email and request that we remove you from any such list. Please note that any request sent pursuant to this paragraph is limited to information you have submitted through the Site. It does not remove you from any other Guild mailing lists.
