That information may be transferred as part of that transaction or change.

Share your email, but only as permitted by the Association as follows. The Association, its entities, and Association vendors/contractors performing member services or offering products on the Association’s behalf will not sell or rent email addresses to anyone outside the Association, nor does the Association rent or sell email addresses to unrelated third parties, affiliates, or members. Your email address, however, may be visible to other Association members who have interest in your business or professional career or Association events, as well as to the public via membership directories/lists, and registration lists. The Association may share your email addresses with third parties to take security measures to help protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data. The Association also shares your email with third parties as necessary for services on our behalf such as packaging, mailing and delivering products and processing event registrations and to respond to customer service requests.

How We Protect Personal Data
The Association implements commercial reasonable security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data. Except for our membership directories, registration lists, and the sharing of information outlined in this policy, access to Personal Data is restricted to the specific companies who need the data to operate, develop, or improve our services. These individuals or partner organizations are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline including the termination and criminal prosecution if they fail to meet these obligations.
However, no online data transmission or data storage is fully secure and despite our reasonable efforts to protect personal data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, the Association cannot guarantee or warrant the security of the Personal Data transmitted to us, or to and from our online site(s). If you have any questions, please contact us at www.sgaalumni.org/contact-us.
User ID and Password
Certain areas of our site(s) require the use of a user ID, email, and/or password as an additional security measure to protect your Personal Data.
How You Can Access, Change, and Delete Your Personal Data
We rely on you to update and correct Personal Data. If you are a member with an account on our site, you can review, update, and correct your information directly on the Association’s website through the “my account” button on the bottom right when you log in.
You can request, at any time, that we delete your Personal Data. All requests must be directed through a formal means available in the www.sgaalumni.org/contact-us section.
The Association may delete your Personal Data if we believe it is incomplete, inaccurate, or that our continued use and storage are contrary to our obligations to other members, individuals, or third parties. When we delete your Personal Data, it will be removed from our active database, or anonymized so it is no longer identified with you, but the data may remain in our archives if the Association determines that it is not practice or possible to delete it.
