ACC’S PRIVACY POLICY

The Association of Corporate Counsel ("ACC") is committed to and recognizes your need for protection and privacy issues on the Internet.

In general, you can visit our Web site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. We do collect the IP addresses and domain names of visitors for site administration purposes, such as to analyze this data for trends and statistics. No personal information is obtained, but the patterns of usage may be tracked and monitored. We may share statistical or aggregated non-personal information about our users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors and other third parties. This data is used to customize our Web site content and advertising to deliver a better experience to our users.

Collecting Personal Identifiable Information

There are times when we may collect personal information from you; for example, when you are registering for the ACC annual meeting or signing up for membership. In addition, we request personal information when you register to receive additional information regarding our products and services or send us a question. If you choose not to give information we request, you can still visit most of the ACC Web site, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers and services. Unless otherwise stated, personal information provided by users will be used for marketing and promotional purposes only by ACC.

We collect the following information from you voluntarily:

  1. Name
  2. Address, either work or home
  3. Birth date
  4. Law school name and graduation date
  5. Jurisdictions in which you are licensed to practice law
  6. Ethnicity and gender
  7. The industry of your employer

Mailing Lists

Personal information of registrants of ACC's educational programs, including the New to In-house Institute, Corporate Counsel University, and the Annual Meeting may be shared with sponsors of these meetings for promotional purposes. This information provided will contain the name, title, company and mailing address of all meeting attendees. These lists will be available in hard copy to all attendees at the meetings.

ACC sells member mailing information through a third-party vendor. Only members’ name, title, company and mailing address are included on these lists. Any members may remove themselves from this mailing list by contacting our Membership Department.

Removing or Updating Personal Information

If you change your mind or wish to update personal information (such as your zip code), we will endeavor to correct, update or remove the personal data you give us. You can verify the information on record by looking up your record in the online membership directory.

You may change your personal information by going directly to My Contact Info (must be logged in). You may at any time revise your personal information or question it by directly contacting our Membership Department at Membership Department or by calling +1.202.293.4103 x360.

ACC reserves the right to disclose user information in special cases, when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other Web site users or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose personal information in response to a subpoena, when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to respond to an emergency situation.

Chapter Mailing List Policy

Chapters are prohibited from distributing or selling member mailing lists. This includes email addresses, phone numbers and fax numbers. ACC maintains this policy so unwanted companies, vendors or law firms will not solicit chapter members. If a vendor or sponsor wants access to a mailing list of any chapter for solicitation purposes, they should be instructed to contact the national office. They will be subject to the mailing list policy as stated in the paragraph above.
