In connection with an application to attend a conference, or your services on a IGAA board or IGAA will collect and store information specific to your identity (i.e., “Personally Identifiable Information,” or “PII”). PII may also be collected and stored if you provide it in the course of a visit to the IGAA website and/or in connection with a request for information from IGAA.
PII collected and stored usually will include your name, telephone number and email address along with other information.

notify you of upcoming conferences, meetings and other events;
contact you to respond to your questions and requests for information; and

Conference Application and Admission Processes
If you apply to attend a conference, we will collect PII to facilitate that process. Such information will include your contact details, such as your name, email address and telephone number. This is so that we can contact you and process your application. This is so that you can be considered for admission to the conference.
If your conference application is accepted (approved), you are expected to register and pay immediately to confirm your attendance and accommodations. In this regard, IGAA collects your payment and billing information – e.g., your credit card number and billing address – and will use such information to process your payments.
If you are accepted to a conference, we will use your PII to:
process your registration and facilitate your attendance at the conferences;
process your payments related to conference attendance as aforesaid;
provide you with information regarding the conference, including scheduling and logistics; and

Service on a IGAA Board or Committee, or as a speaker
If you agree to serve on a IGAA Board or Committee, to chair, vice chair or speak at a IGAA conference, we collect the information described in 2.A above. We also usually request more detailed information regarding your educational and professional background, and we may also request a photograph.
We collect this information to make it available to conference applicants and attendees, and to those interested in learning more about IGAA and the conferences it organizes.
Accordingly, if you agree to serve on a IGAA Board or Committee, to chair, vice chair or speak at a IGAA conference, we may post on the relevant page of the IGAA website your PII (other than payment information), including your name, email address, telephone number and your photograph if you have provided one.
