Cookies

ASPPH may use cookies, user ID functionality, or other methods to collect information. A cookie is a small text file that may be stored on the hard drive of your computer when you access the websites. Cookies allow us to remember your username and password so that you do not have to re-enter this information each time you log in. Cookies also allow us to analyze data regarding your use and engagement with its websites. You are free to decline cookies or remove them from your computer at any time. However, this may result in you not being able to access certain features on the websites.

Disclosure of Information

ASPPH does not sell your personal information to anyone. ASPPH may disclose information collected from you to ASPPH employees, independent contractors and affiliates for the sole purpose of them providing technical, financial and other necessary services to ASPPH. ASPPH’s contract with third parties generally prohibits using information collected for any other purpose except to provide the products or services requested. ASPPH may also share your information with partners to provide you with services or information relevant to your indicated professional public health interests. ASPPH may also disclose information collected on its websites when necessary to defend its rights and property, to collect upon a debt, to respond to judicial process, and to provide information to law enforcement agencies in connection with any public safety matters.

Security

ASPPH uses a variety of security technologies and procedures consistent with current best practices to protect its websites and databases. Nonetheless, ASPPH cannot guarantee that your personal information will never be disclosed. Please be aware that any information that you transfer to ASPPH is done at your own risk. ASPPH is not liable for any damages caused by the unintended disclosure of any personal information.

Data Retention

ASPPH retains the information that you provide to us as long as we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so. At any time, you may request ASPPH to provide access to the personal information that we have on file and to delete such personal information. Upon receiving such a request in writing, ASPPH will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.

Children

ASPPH does not direct its websites to, nor does it knowingly or intentionally collect, any personal information from children under 13.

Links to Other Sites
