IWA collects and stores contact information from individuals as it is knowingly provided to us, including email addresses. Your privacy is important to us. With the exception of the information you supply for use in connection with IWA’s online directory, your contact information and personal data will not be shared with anyone outside of IWA except to process your credit card payment.

You may choose at any time not to provide personally identifiable information, although this may restrict our ability to provide requested services or information.

IWA collects email addresses from those that have requested more information. IWA may use your email address to send you emails about IWA events or activities. To unsubscribe to our mailing list, please contact iwa@iwachicago.org . Other than in connection with IWA’s online directory, e-mail addresses, phone and fax numbers or any other type of personal information provided are not made available to third parties. IWA does not disclose credit card account information provided by its visitors when signing up for an event or in any other case.

Credit Card Security

Your credit card information is not retained by any information system IWA utilizes. Credit card transactions are processed immediately by merchant services vendors that meet the highest standards in the industry. All credit card transactions are ECI (Electronic Commerce Indicator) compliant. If you have questions or concerns about the security of your information, please contact the IWA office at www.iwachicago.org or 312-263-1421. Please keep in mind that e- mail does not use SSL encryption technology and we advise against sending credit card information to us via e-mail.

Disclosures For Legal Purposes

We reserve the right to disclose any personally identifiable information or other information we collect through this website or otherwise if we are required to do so by law or if we reasonably believe that the disclosure is necessary in order to (a) fulfill a government request; (b) conform with the requirements of law or to comply with legal process served on us; (c) protect or defend our legal rights or property; or (d) in an emergency to protect the health or safety of the users of the website or the general public.
