Collection, Use, Disclosure, and Retention of Information
When you join AATIA, you are asked to provide your name and contact information. You may also voluntarily provide information about your professional services (e.g., your working languages and areas of specialization). We use this information only for the purposes of processing your membership, communicating with you about AATIA activities, and including you in our online membership directory, which is visible to the public and potential clients at https://aatia.org/member-directory. Members may choose to block this information from public access by selecting the appropriate option in their member profile.
Credit card transactions on our website are handled through NeonPay. Your interactions with NeonPay are governed by Neon’s privacy and security policies. AATIA itself does not collect or retain any credit card or other financial data from members.
Member data retention
We retain your data for as long as your membership is valid. You can request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. If your membership expires and is not renewed within seven years, your data will be removed from our database.
If you send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org using our website contact form, you will be asked to provide your name and e-mail address. We ask for this information so that we can reply to your request. By submitting the form, you are agreeing to provide us with this information. Your contact information is not saved on our website, and we will never share your information with anyone outside AATIA.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer any personally identifiable information to any outside parties. This does not include trusted third parties, such as payment processing services, who assist us in operating our website or servicing you, as long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. AATIA may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law or to protect our or other’s rights, property, or safety.

How do we protect your information?
Your personal information is accessible only to authorized AATIA officers or appointees via a secured database connection. Members may also choose to make all or certain parts of their personal information hidden to the public in our online membership directory.
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access that information. We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit card information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider’s database. It is only accessible to authorized individuals with special access rights to such systems, who are required to keep the information confidential.
After a transaction, your private credit card or other financial information will not be kept on file, unless you select the automatic membership renewal option.
