What Personal Information We Collect
The COMELA collects your personal information online when you voluntarily provide it to us. If you choose to register online, we ask you to provide limited personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number and/or email address. We also collect information that will allow you to establish a username and password if you would like to do that.
How to Review and Change Your Personal Information
If you register for a COMELA account, you may review and change your personal information by logging in to https://comela2020.acg.edu, then clicking on your name at the top of the screen, and then clicking on “Manage Profile”, or by logging into “Manage my Account”.
How We Use Personal Information That We Collect Online
We may use your personal information within The COMELA: (1) to provide you with the services you request; (2) to answer questions about our services; billing, payment methods or use of our website; (3) to process or collect payments for our services; and (4) to contact you about the products and services that we offer.
Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties
We will not disclose any personal information to any third party (excluding our contractors to whom we may provide such information for the limited purpose of providing services to us and who are obligated to keep the information confidential), unless (1) you have authorized us to do so; (2) we are legally required to do so, for example, in response to a subpoena, court order or other legal process and/or, (3) it is necessary to protect our property rights related to this website. We also may share aggregate, non-personal information about website usage with unaffiliated third parties. This aggregate information does not contain any personal information about our users.
How We Protect Information Online
We exercise great care to protect your personal information. This includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, and intrusion detection. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via email since we have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us since email does not have the security features that are built into our websites.
In addition, we limit COMELA’s employees’, contractors’, and partners’ access to personal information. Only those employees, contractors, and partners with a business reason to know have access to this information. We review our security arrangements from time to time as we deem appropriate.
How can you help protect your information?
If you are using a COMELA website for which you registered and choose a password, we recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also remember to sign out of the COMELA website and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if these others have access to your computer.
