Some examples of this type of information include information that you electronically submit when you contact us with questions, request email updates, or participate in surveys, and information that you post on message boards or other community posting areas on our Site. We may also ask for information (including a credit card number) from those who pay for a membership, register for a conference, workshop or other event, or conduct other transactions on our Site.

This category of information also includes information that you electronically submit when you register to use our Site or you submit a membership application via our Site. Similar information may be submitted through conference or seminar registration, publication orders and subscriptions. While some areas of our Site are available to the public, many of the features and services that are available on the Site are made available only to members. If you are a member, you will be asked to register for access to the Member Areas by completing the registration provided on the Site. The registration form may require you to submit certain personally identifying information (such as your name and email address), to provide certain demographic information (such as your gender ), and to create a username and password. If you are not a League member but want to join, you can request membership by visiting the “Join Us” section of the website and submitting the information, including personally identifying information, required on the membership application form.

Access Privileges
We use information collected during registration to verify that you have the rights to access League-member-only content, and that you qualify for various League-member discounts and promotions. For our email communications, League members, registered users of any League site and other League customers may opt out at any time by using the “Unsubscribe” mechanism within the e-mail, which allows email recipients to manage their subscription preferences regarding League e-newsletters, e-mail alerts, and special offers. This mechanism does not allow a user to opt out of receiving transactional e-mail, such as registration confirmation, product, service, or membership benefit updates, and responses to direct requests.

When you provide your email or postal address to League on any online or printed material, it is implied that your are opting in to receive communications from League. You will also set up a contact record in League’s database. Only you and League staff can view your complete contact record. Portions of your contact record may be visible in the League Member Directory while you have an active League membership. Use of the League Member Directory is for networking purposes only. Abuse of this information could lead to suspension or loss of membership. You can edit the information available in your contact record (and limit visibility of information shown in the Member Directory) at any time.

You may opt out of League communications by:

– clicking the “Unsubscribe” link found at the bottom of League newsletter emails
