How We Use the Information

As a benefit to IEBA members and certificants, IEBA will (at no charge) include your name and relevant biographical information in IEBA directories. From time to time, we may also desire to contact you for market research purposes or to provide you with marketing information we think would be of particular interest. You will not be included in any directories nor will IEBA reveal your personal information publicly or to any third party (except as stated below), unless we receive your explicit permission to do so. For example, the Engineering Business Society at IEBA membership application includes a question asking if you want your name included in mailing lists, IEBA announcement lists and IEBA directories. Your name will not be used for any such purpose unless you affirmatively request IEBA to do so. In addition, if at any time you would like to have your name removed from IEBA lists and/or directories, please follow the directions given below in the “Choice” section of this document to opt-out of such contact.

IEBA will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. You should not disclose your user name and password to others. In addition, if applicable, you should remember to sign out of your IEBA account or service at the end of each session. You may also wish to close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, despite our best efforts to protect your personal information, IEBA cannot completely ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or to or from our online products or services.
