We use HTTPS protocol for the entire Site.

Do-Not-Track Signals and similar mechanisms

Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the sites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. There currently is disagreement, including among participants in the leading internet standards-setting organization, concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals.
The Association currently does not take action in response to these signals. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, the Association will reassess how to respond to these signals.

Embedded content and links to other websites

The site may include links to other websites and embedded content (e.g. no-cookie embedded version of Youtube videos, “social” buttons, etc.).

Following links or activating embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
With no such user actions, the Site is designed not to transfer any personal information to external websites.

In general, if visited, these websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
Although we try to link only to websites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the content, security, or privacy practices employed by other websites.

The Association does not knowingly collect information from children and does not specifically target or direct its Site to children.
