Website Privacy Notice
The Collegium Internationale Allergologicum, Inc. (CIA) has a strong commitment to privacy, recognizing that we are a public association. This statement outlines the policies and procedures concerning information gathering and dissemination practices for our website.
Collecting and Using User Information
CIA collects information in different ways from those who access our site. We use this information primarily to provide a customized experience as you use our site and do not share this information with third parties. However, we may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law, or in other special cases described below.
Our site uses order forms for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect users’ contact information (e.g., name and e-mail address) and financial information (e.g., account or credit card numbers). Financial information is used to bill the user for products and services and then is deleted from our records in compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Contact information from the order form is used to send orders, contact the user regarding any problems with the order, and to provide the user with information about our association, including promotional materials. Users may opt out of receiving future communications at any time by contacting the Secretariat.
Current CIA members' contact information is made available through the Membership Directory. This information is only available to other current CIA members. Members may opt out of being listed in the Membership Directory; see the Updating User Profile section below.
Disclosure of Personal Information

CIA provides individuals the opportunity to opt out of receiving communications from us when we request information about the user. To update these preferences, users may visit the CIA website or email the Secretariat.
CIA also allows our members to opt out of displaying personal information in the Membership Directory. To update these preferences, members may visit the CIA website or email the Secretariat.
Our site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control, but we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining this information.
Additionally, be aware that if you visit non-CIA websites where you are prompted to log in or that are customizable, you may be required to accept cookies. Third parties and other non-CIA websites may also use their own cookies. We do not control use of these cookies and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them.
Finally, cookies are used to support Google Analytics functionality for website activity tracking. Google Analytics stores information at Google. Read more about Google Analytics privacy and security information.
