There are a number of areas in the Site where we ask for and collect information about you, including personally identifiable information. Where we do, it is in order to serve you better, or is necessary to accomplish the service you are requesting. Examples include membership information (which may include name, address, email, telephone number and educational and professional experience information), shipping information, and product purchase information.
Membership information is used both in the INCOSE mailing lists (which also includes lists provided to working groups and chapters) and in the INCOSE Membership Directory.
The mailing lists may be used to inform you about INCOSE services, products, conferences, meetings and events. You may instruct us to exclude you from the central INCOSE mailing list or a chapter mailing list by sending an email to us at email@example.com . This email should include your name and INCOSE member number for identification purposes as well as which mailing list – central INCOSE or local chapter – you are opting out of.
The INCOSE Membership Directory, available online to INCOSE members, contains each member's, name, mailing address (home or business), title (if applicable), company (if applicable), telephone number and email (if applicable).You may choose not to be listed in the Membership Directory by opting-out when joining INCOSE, renewing your membership, or at any other time by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and including your name and INCOSE member number for identification purposes. This opt-out must be renewed annually with your membership renewal to remain in effect.
Security identifiers are not disclosed to third parties or affiliated persons or entities. Shipping information (except membership information as noted above) and product purchase information is not disclosed except in connection with the fulfillment and processing of your orders and requests.
All of the personal information collected from you on the Site, including names, addresses, are stored behind a "firewall," and defenses have been erected to seek to enhance the protection of your information from outside attack by hackers and curious visitors.
INCOSE cooperates with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties, to enforce laws. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us, service or content providers we work with, or you to possible legal liability.
