Your information and how our Site makes use of it
Our Site may collect up to two kinds of information: personal (such as your name and e-mail address) and aggregate information (such as the number of users who log on to the Site on a daily basis). As a general policy, no personally identifiable information is automatically collected from your visit to our Site. However, if you choose to participate in any informational, promotional or interactive activities offered on the Site, you may be asked to provide us with personally identifiable information about yourself (“PII”). We may collect PII (which you provide) that may include your name and email address.
If you attend Chapter events, you may be photographed while attending the event, and you hereby grant the Chapter the irrevocable right to use your photograph, image, and likeness in its promotional materials in any form or manner without payment, fees, or royalties of any kind.
The Chapter does not collect credit card or other financial information from you. However, third party services such as Eventbrite collects payment information from non-AMA members when they register to attend a Chapter educational event.
From time to time, we may collect general statistical or aggregate information. Such information can include the type of browsers being used (e.g., Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox), the operating system you are using (e.g., iOS, Android, Windows, or Mac OS), the number of users that visit a specific page on the Site and the nature and duration of such visits. This information may be used to help analyze Site traffic and improve our services. At no point, however, will the aggregated information personally identify you.
We reserve the right to disclose any personal or aggregate information if required to do so by law, including compliance with legal process served on the Chapter, or if we believe that such action is necessary in order to (a) to protect or defend the legal rights or property of the Chapter, the Site, or its users; or (b) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of the Site’s users or the general public.
Automatically Collected Information

This website is intended for use by individuals who are 18 years of age or older. Accordingly, the Chapter does not knowingly, directly or passively collect information from individuals under the age of 18.
We may use information about you for our own internal statistical, design, or operational purposes, such as to estimate our audience size, measure aggregate traffic patterns as well as to understand demographic, customer interest, and other trends among our users. We may outsource these analytics tasks to authorized third parties; however, the third parties may not use or disclose your personal information for any other purposes.
Information about our users and the Site is one of our most important assets. Therefore, information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed as part of any merger or acquisition, creation of a separate business to provide the Site or sale or pledge of the Chapter’s assets as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information would be transferred as one of the assets of the Chapter.
Protection of the Chapter and Others
We release personal information when we believe it is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order); to enforce or apply our policies; to protect our rights or property, or to protect our users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, our Site; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.
