The Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI) is committed to the protection of the privacy of its Users, regardless of whether they are situated inside or outside the European Economic Area. We only use and process your personal data in accordance with the GDPR. The GDPR is short for the Regulation (EU) of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (General Data Protection Regulation). This European regulation provides the highest level of privacy protection in the world. That is why we apply this high standard to all Users.
Information You Submit to Us
We collect information submitted to us from our members and others who have completed a transaction with the organization (i.e., membership, conference registration, course registration, etc.). Some of the information that you provide to us may be personally identifiable information, or information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, school/company name, address, e-mail address, phone number or member number.
Information We Collect Automatically
We may automatically record your telephone number when you call us and your e-mail address when you correspond with us by e-mail. This information may be collected in our database for future reference.
Use and Disclosure of Your Information
We may use information collected from you to provide you with personalized service, to send e-mail alerts to you, to answer your requests, to process your membership application, to determine what services to provide to our members, to improve the content of our services and our website, and for marketing and research purposes. We may combine your personally identifiable information with other information we collect or with information we obtain from third parties.
We may also use your information to track visitors of our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users’ needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties.
ACEI does not sell or rent our mailing lists. Unless we tell you otherwise at the point of collection, we will not disclose your personally identifiable information to anyone else without your consent, except under the following circumstances:
If you register for a program, purchase an item, or sign up for housing for a conference, these services are sometimes handled by an outside processing center. This information is held in a confidential relationship between ACEI and the processing center.
To our agents and service partners that assist us in fulfilling our mission to our members and users of our website. Examples include entities that fulfill orders, send postal mail or e-mails, perform research or analyze data, provide marketing assistance, organize educational events, provide educational materials/services, or provide customer service. In such cases, we provide access to personally identifiable information necessary to perform their functions, but restrict them from using it for any other purpose and require them to maintain its confidentiality.
When required by law or order of a court or governmental agency, or compelled by subpoena.
In addition, ACEI may also provide limited data to third parties that offer products and services. These limited data include names, job titles, companies and addresses.
