Privacy Statement for Regulatory Compliance Association.
Welcome to the Regulatory Compliance Association web site. The Regulatory Compliance Association (RCA) created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy for our web site users and our membership. The following paragraphs disclose our information gathering and dissemination practices. The privacy statement may change at any time; any changes will be posted on this page. Should you have additional questions, comments or concerns please contact us by submitting a General Inquiry via the Contact Us functionality within the Contact Us section.
Your e-mail address will only be used within the RCA and its entities. We do not sell or rent e-mail addresses to anyone outside the RCA. If you wish to be removed from our e-mail mailings, please submit an “Unsubscribe” request via the Contact Us functionality located within the Contact Us section.
E-mail Information Gathered by the RCA:
For some e-mails distributed by the RCA and its Sections, specific information on recipient response is collected. For example, we sometimes review how many recipients open and subsequently choose to click through to links provided in an e-mail. We use this information only for the purposes of analyzing areas of interest, improving the level of our service and enhancing the usefulness of our website for RCA members and other visitors. None of this information is sold or distributed outside of the RCA in any manner.
The RCA’s Support Level Agreement:
The RCA is committed to providing 100 percent availability of its Internet site(s) and email aliasing service. We have implemented safeguards and alarms to notify us in the event of loss of Internet connectivity to the backbone and of hardware failures. Even with these safeguards in place, loss of connectivity or hardware failure can still occur. For this reason, the RCA cannot “guarantee” its Internet connectivity, nor can we be responsible for lost or delayed requests, email, or content.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future.
A unique number called an IP address identifies every computer on the Internet. Each time you connect to the Internet your machine is assigned an IP address. An IP address is a number that identifies each sender or receiver of information that is sent in packets across the Internet.
RCA Site/Membership Registration Forms:
Our site’s registration forms require users to give us contact information (like name and email address), method of payment, and demographic information. We use customer contact information from the registration forms to send the user information about our association. The customer’s contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. Information regarding method of payment is collected for member enrollment, registration and to process orders for products and services.
The RCA Web Site may contain links to other external web sites that do not fall under the regulatorycomplianceassociation.org domain. Consequently, the RCA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such external web sites.
Our site uses an order form for members and customers to request information, products, and services. We collect visitor’s contact information (like email address) and method of payment. Contact information from the order form is used to process orders and to send information about our association. User payment information that is collected is used to check the users’ qualifications and bill the user for products and services.
Our online surveys ask respondents for contact information (like email address) and demographic information (like zip code, age). We also may use contact data from our surveys to send the user information about our association.
We run contests on some sections of our site in which we ask visitors for contact information (like email address) and demographic information. The customer’s contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary.
This site makes chat rooms, forums, List Serves and message boards available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. Although the Regulatory Compliance Association tries to protect your personal information when using these public forums, the Regulatory Compliance Association cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. It is also not the Regulatory Compliance Association’s responsibility for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords you set up and/or any account information you have disclosed.
