Privacy Policy

​ASIS International may collect personally identifying information about individuals from forms filled out on this site. That information may be used for marketing and educational purposes, as well as provide relevant content to the user.

This information is used to improve our Web site and to monitor overall traffic patterns.

Please be aware that Web sites that have links on our site may collect personally identifiable information. The information practices of those links are not covered by this privacy policy. Users should also be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (such as user name or email address), that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other parties.

In addition, cookies may be placed in the browser files of a user's computer. These cookies are optional and may be refused any time using your Web browser software; however, doing so will make some parts of the site inaccessible. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions about this policy.

Information Security

We work hard to protect ASIS International and our members from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular: we encrypt many of our services using SSL; we review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems; we restrict access to personal information to ASIS International employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations  and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.

Disclosures to Third Parties

ASIS International also makes member contact information available through the ASIS International on-line only Membership Directory to other members using its Web site. On occasion, ASIS International may also provide limited data to approved third parties that offer products and services. These limited data include names, job titles, companies and business addresses, but do not include business phone numbers, business fax numbers or e-mail addresses.

We provide personal information to our affiliates or other trusted businesses or persons to process it for ASIS International, based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. Users may request ASIS International to refrain from disclosing the data it collects to third parties going to the website or may contact ASIS International Member Services at asis@asisonline.org or at 1.703.519.6200.
