Distribution of Member Contact Information
The American Society of Radiologic Technologists takes seriously the privacy of its members' contact information and abides by all federal and state privacy laws regarding postal addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers and e-mail addresses. 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 members. ASRT members consent to such rental by virtue of their membership in the ASRT.
The ASRT understands that some members do not wish to receive unsolicited mail, e-mail messages, faxes or telephone calls. Any member may call or write the ASRT office and request to be placed on a list that will prevent the ASRT from distributing the member's address, phone number, fax number or e-mail address. 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. Members recognize that their individual contact information is available from other sources that ASRT cannot control.
The ASRT rents mail lists containing members' postal addresses on a fee-per-usage basis to selected companies. In addition, ASRT business partners may receive a mail list of member 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.
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 members 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.
