In order to provide services to its members, customers and website visitors, the American Society of Radiologic Technologists collects contact information such as postal addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses and other information. The ASRT takes seriously the privacy of your contact information and abides by all federal and state privacy laws regarding the collection and protection of this information. This policy explains how we protect your contact information, how we may share your contact information with third parties with your consent, and how you may revoke your consent for us to share your contact information.
Receipt and Use of Contact Information
The ASRT uses your contact information to provide, analyze, administer, enhance and personalize our services to you and others, including to provide member benefits, to process product orders and payments, and to communicate with you. To help keep member dues as low as possible, the ASRT may at times rent postal addresses to businesses that offer products or services that might be of interest to ASRT and its members. You consent to such rental by virtue of your membership, your use of the ASRT website, or your use of other ASRT goods or services.
ASRT receives and stores information you enter on the ASRT website or provide to ASRT by phone, e-mail or in any other way. On ASRT’s website, you may request information, subscribe to ASRT’s journals, purchase ASRT’s products and services, participate in ASRT’s contests and surveys, and use any other services ASRT provides. To take advantage of these offerings, it is necessary for you to disclose personal information (referred to as “personal information,” “personally identifiable information,” and “your information”) to ASRT, including but not limited to one or more of the following types of identifying information: name, age, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit card details. ASRT uses the information you provide to respond to your requests, communicate with you, provide information about ASRT and promotional material from some of ASRT’s partners, and customize and improve ASRT’s services. To purchase ASRT’s goods or services, you must submit financial information in addition to certain personal information, which ASRT use to bill you for the purchased goods or services.
The ASRT understands that you may not wish to receive unsolicited mail, e-mail messages, faxes or telephone calls. At any time, you may call or write the ASRT office and request to be placed on a list that will prevent the ASRT from distributing your address, phone number, fax number or e-mail address to third parties. The ASRT is only able to limit the receipt of mail, e-mail, faxes and telephone calls from third parties with whom ASRT has a direct relationship. You recognize that your individual contact information is available from other sources that ASRT cannot control.
You also may choose not to give ASRT your personally identifiable information, although this information is required if you want to take advantage of some of ASRT’s services such as subscribing to ASRT’s journals, purchasing ASRT products or joining ASRT.
The ASRT rents mail lists containing your postal addresses on a fee-per-usage basis to selected companies. In addition, ASRT business partners may receive a mail list of individuals’ addresses as part of their negotiated contract with ASRT. In both cases, mail list users are required to submit in advance a sample of the piece they intend to mail, which ASRT must screen for relevancy and approve. If a company intends to send out more than one mailing using an ASRT mail list, each individual mail piece must be submitted to the ASRT for approval. ASRT does not rent lists containing e-mail addresses to third-party commercial enterprises, but we may provide lists of e-mail addresses to researchers, nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies and ASRT affiliate societies.
Affiliates and Volunteers
ASRT affiliate societies, ASRT volunteers, individuals and organizations that participate with ASRT in joint projects may use contact information provided by ASRT for ASRT business only. These groups must ensure that all communication with ASRT contacts adheres to ASRT policies concerning content, that the originator of the content is properly identified, and that the content in no way defames or infringes upon the rights of any individual or entity.
If you would like to opt-out of receiving targeted advertising, you can manage these settings by visiting the Google Ads Preferences Manager. Also, Google recommends installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. You can visit the Network Advertising Initiative op-out page to opt out of third-party vendor cookies.
This policy may change from time to time, so ASRT recommends that you check it regularly. Your continued use of ASRT’s website or continued relationship with ASRT after the posting of any changes will constitute your acceptance of those changes.
