Where personal information is required to use or interact with the ACSI website, it is our policy that this information — such as your name, postal or email address, or telephone number — is private and confidential. The personal information you provide to ACSI is stored in a secure location, accessible only by appropriate staff, and is used only for the purposes for which you provided it, such as to reply to a question or to send requested materials.
We never provide members’ email addresses for third-party usage.
Personal information collected as a function of the ACSI website will not be released to third parties except to further the purpose for which you provided it or if such release is required by law.
Our website does not track, collect or distribute personal information about visitors. We regularly compile aggregate statistics that show the number of visitors to our site, the requests we receive for particular information on the site and the Internet service providers that those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used by internal ACSI technical support staff to improve the website in an ongoing effort to provide better information and services to the public. Usage statistics in aggregate form are also provided to the institutions that license content that is delivered on the website.
