Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their ‘Personally Identifiable Information’ (PII) is being used online. PII, as described in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.


What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our website?


When ordering or registering on this site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, email address or other details to help you with your experience.


When do we collect information?


We collect information – your email – from you when you subscribe to our monthly meeting announcement.


How do we use your information?


We use your email to send you the monthly meeting announcement you requested. We don’t sell anything on the website, though we do give a link to where you can join ARCE National. Sending the meeting announcement and a very rare special announcement is the ONLY use we make of your email. It is never shown, sold to or used by anyone else for any purpose.

How do we protect your information?


We do not use vulnerability scanning and/or scanning to PCI standards. We never ask for credit card numbers.


Our website implements a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information.


All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.


Do we use ‘cookies’?


We do not use cookies for tracking purposes

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Since each browser is a little different, look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.


Third-party disclosure


We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information.


Third-party links


As said, we provide clickable links for our email address (clickable email link) and the ‘Join’ page of ARCE National. You must choose to click these links. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies, therefore we have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites.




We have not enabled Google AdSense on our site but we may do so in the future.


California Online Privacy Protection Act


CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. – See more at:

According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously.

Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page or as a minimum, on the first significant page after entering our website.

Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can easily be found on the page specified above.

You will be notified of any Privacy Policy changes:

  • On the Privacy Policy Page

Can change your personal information:

  • By emailing us

How does the site handle Do Not Track signals?

We honor Do Not Track signals. We do not plant cookies or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

Does our site allow third-party behavioral tracking?

It’s also important to note that we do not allow third-party behavioral tracking


COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)


When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.


Fair Information Practices


The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify the users via in-site notification

  • Within 7 business days
