What personal information do we collect?
Personal information is information about an identifiable individual, which includes name, address, email address, telephone number, and other information that identifies you. We do not require anyone to share any personal information in order to enjoy the Site, which means you can visit the Site without any need to register with us. If you choose to register, we will collect only the personal information that is needed to administer our business, allow you to utilize the full capabilities of the Site, provide superior services to our members, and communicate information relating to our products and services that we believe to be of interest to our members.
We may also automatically collect certain information describing your visit, such as your IP address and browser information. We collect information in the aggregate—on an anonymous basis—and may use it to evaluate the ease of use and convenience of our Site and to make further improvements.
We may also use a third party to help us gather and analyze information about the areas that you visit on the Site to evaluate and improve the client experience and the convenience of the Site, and to help us evaluate some of the specific information that you provide to us.
How do we use the information we collect?
When we collect information from you, we may use it for a number of purposes, including to: Identify your preferences so that we can notify you of new or additional services, features, promotions, events or special offerings relating to our business that might be of interest to you; improve service selections and member service; invite you to participate in member research; measure the advertising effectiveness of our online and other advertisements and events; respond to your comments and inquiries; and help us understand Site activity and improve your use of our Site.
In order for us to maintain the accuracy of your personal information and improve our communication with you, we may also combine the information we collect with other public demographic information.
USITT postal mailing lists are made available only to USITT members and related organizations. Members may express or change their preferences for sharing personal information upon joining or renewing their membership, registering for events, or by contacting us.

We do not collect or maintain personal information, via the Site or otherwise, from those we actually know are children under 13 years of age. If you are under 13, you should not submit any personal information to us. If you are the parent of a child under 13, please help us protect your child’s privacy by instructing them never to provide personal information on this Site or any other without your permission.
