A. Commitment to Online Privacy
Indiana CPA Society collects personal information from our visitors on a voluntary basis only. We will limit the collection and use of personal information to what is necessary to manage our professional society, provide you with the highest quality visit, and offer you information we think will be of interest. The individual information we collect is used only to facilitate the on-line experience through enhanced navigation or to suggest areas in which we may improve the structure and content of the site. We do not sell, rent or transmit personal information to other organizations unless the Society has formed an alliance / partnership to provide services to enhance your professional success and that organization has agreed to comply with this policy.

However, the Society could be required to disclose personal information in response to valid legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order. Disclosure may also be appropriate to protect the Society's legal rights or during emergencies if physical safety is believed to be at risk. The Society will take reasonable steps to limit the scope and consequences of any such disclosures.
