How We Keep Your Information Secure
We use current security measures to safeguard your personal information. All the information you provide us is stored in a secure computing environment protected by secure firewalls to prevent unauthorized access.
We control access so that only staff who need to access the information can. To register for events or personalize your experience, you must use a unique, confidential ACCA user ID and password.
When you use secure areas of the site, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol with 256-bit encryption. This means that all the information sent between your computer and our secure computer environment is encrypted or scrambled so that no one can read it in transit. You can read it and we can read it- no one else can. There are two cues to show you that you are using a secure area. First, the Web site address (or URL) appears as https:// (instead of just http://)-the "s" is for "secure." Second, a lock or key indicator appears in the status bar of your Web browser.
We do accept credit card payments for registrations. Credit card numbers are not stored on our server. If someone uses your credit card to make an unauthorized purchase, check with the institution that issued your card to find out what the exact liability is.
If you send us an email, we may save it if we think we'll need it to communicate with you. Remember, email is not a secure way to send personal information because it is not encrypted. Please don't send any personal information to us using email; use our secure forms instead.

ACCA may provide links to a number of other web sites that we believe might offer you useful information and services. However, those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as ACCA.

We urge you to contact the relevant parties controlling these sites or accessing their on-line policies for the relevant information about their data collection practices before submitting any personal information or other sensitive data.
