PRIVACY
We, The Internet of Things Security Services Association (IoTSSA Inc.), are committed to respecting the privacy of individuals who visit and use the IoTSSA website. This statement will inform you as to how your personal information is collected and used in connection with the site, the purpose for which it is collected and used, with whom the information will be shared, how long your information will remain stored, and what security measures are in place to protect your information.

Collection and Use

The member database of user information is compiled and stored in order to effectively communicate with IoTSSA members. This information is collected using an email opt in option when users visit IoTSSA.com. User registrations to IoTSSA Expo live events are added to the membership database. Users are advised of this at the bottom of the registration form before opting in.  We do not automatically gather any additional personal information from you when you visit the site. We use computer cookie tracking software that receives and records the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer that has contacted the website. This information is only linked to the computer and related cookie history in question. This information is used so that we may send future alerts on local security events and/or other security news. Otherwise, IP addresses are not linked to the identity of individuals visiting the site. A simple counter is used to measure the overall effectiveness of an email campaign. Similarly, links from banner advertisements are counted to measure effectiveness of the ad placement, but not linked to any personal information or IP address information in any way. The email address that you may voluntarily supply in the process of requesting information will be used for emailing notification of future association communications and alerts. You will have the option to not receive such e-mail notifications by way of an opt out link at the bottom of all email communications. Personal information collected will be used to provide security information, advise of upcoming events both online and live as well as any emergency security alerts as they come available that will assist in keeping both our membership and their respective client bases informed as quickly as possible.
