COOKIES

SHARING
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We may partner with another party to provide specific services (for example: PSI,  our testing service providers). When you sign up for these services, we will share names or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services. We may also disclose certain information with legal counsel or with officers of the court when required or needed.
The ABOHN membership list is sold periodically to other organizations who wish to send information regarding various educational courses, publications or other products or services that are presumed to be of interest to occupational health nurse practitioners. ABOHN carefully screens all such requests to ensure that these offerings are appropriate and in good taste.

SURVEYS
From time-to-time our site may request information from you via surveys.

Our website takes every precaution to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When we ask you to enter sensitive information (e.g., credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the industry standard encryption software known as SSL. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also take prudent measures to protect your information off-line. ABOHN has appropriate security measures in place at our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you.
It is important to note that you also play a significant role in protecting your information. We take precautions to ensure that no one can view or edit your personal information on our web site without knowing your password, so do not share your password with others.
 
CORRECTING/UPDATING PERSONAL INFORMATION
If your personally identifiable information changes (e.g., your zip code) we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove the personal data provided to us UNLESS the data you have provided is under the auspices of a client for whom we are required to maintain long-term information for examination, licensure or credentialing purposes.
