Privacy Statement for Carolinas AGC

Carolinas AGC has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy and to help users of this Web site understand how we collect, use, and protect information about them. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for


Information Collected

For each visitor to this Web site, our Web server automatically recognizes the user's domain name, IP address, and certain information about the user's equipment (e.g., type of browser, screen resolution, support for Java). Our server does not automatically record or recognize user–specific, personal information. Such information (e.g., e–mail address, telephone number, title, subject interests) is collected by our server only when volunteered by the user (e.g., when a user uses the site to register for a meeting, purchase a product, or complete or revise a user profile) and is recognized by the server only if the user logs in.

We use cookies only to store user preferences and to record session information (e.g., user passwords). We do not knowingly allow ad server companies to collect information from this site. Credit card information is recorded only for completion of transaction for which it was provided and is not stored for long–term use.


Use of Collected Information

Use of Collected Information Carolinas AGC's primary objective in collecting user information is to provide the best member and customer service possible. User–specific information that is provided by the user is normally incorporated into AGC's general member and contacts database. CAGC uses information in that database, and shares some information in the database with AGC of America and third–party service providers, for the purpose of executing requested CAGC–endorsed products, services, and resources, and for the purpose of notifying users of additional CAGC–endorsed products, services, statements, and resources. AGC occasionally shares some collected information with member and nonmember individuals, such as when we provide attendees of a CAGC event with a registrants list containing contact information. Carolinas AGC generally does not sell or trade collected information to third parties specifically for commercial use but does provide limited member information to third parties. This includes, e.g., membership lists shared with reputable organizations with which CAGC has an established business relationship, the annually printed Membership Directory, this site's "Find Contractors/Supplier" service.


Access to Personal Information

Users can access and revise most of the collected information about them by using the Edit Personal Profile page at . Additional information may be attainable from Carolinas AGC (704)372-1450.


Opportunity to Opt Out

Because collected information volunteered by the user is automatically stored in Carolinas AGC's member and contacts database along with information collected by means other than this site, it is not possible to specifically opt out from the use of collected information. However, users may submit a request to limit marketing or to avoid specific types of communication (e.g., mail, fax, e–mail) at 704/372-1450 ext. 5230. User may opt out of emailed Carolinas AGC publications using a link at the bottom of each issue (e.g., Weekly NewsBreak).

Security

This site and the servers that store collected information have industry–standard security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under Carolinas AGC's control.
