ACHP PRIVACY POLICY, TERMS, & DISCLAIMER

The Association of Certified Handyman Professionals values the privacy of its members, chapters, and visitors to its Web sites and is strongly committed to each visitor’s right to privacy. This privacy policy has been developed as a codification of the ACHP’s commitment in this area.

Trademarks
The content, trademarks, logos, seals, and service marks displayed on this Website are owned by Association of Certified Handyman Professionals Inc  (collectively, the “Trademarks“, which also constitute Content).   All Trademarks not owned by Association of Certified Handyman Professionals Inc are the property of their respective owners, and are used with permission. Nothing contained on this Website may be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any right or license to use any Trademark.

Consent
By using the ACHP’s Web sites, you signify your acceptance of our privacy policy. If you, as a visitor, choose to log on as a member, register for courses or events, purchase products, apply for membership or certification, or otherwise submit personally identifiable information, you are consenting to the ACHP’s use of such data in accordance with its privacy policy.

Scope
It is the intent of ACHP to be in compliance with recognized principles regarding privacy of data.

This policy guides how ACHP stores and uses personal information that is collected by ACHP or provided to ACHP, whether through our Web sites or by other methods such as an application, enrollment, registration or order form, or other means. This policy covers all of ACHP’s Web sites. However, this policy does not cover chapter Web sites whether or not linked to the ACHP’s sites.

Membership Identity Number and Password
All individual ACHP members are entered into the membership database and are assigned a unique membership ID number and password. Membership number and password are delivered to members together with basic information about membership benefits and services directly from ACHP.

Collection and Use of Information
Even if you do nothing during your visit other than navigate an ACHP Web site, read pages, or download information, we will automatically gather and store certain information about your visit. In order to ensure our Web sites are as useful and effective an information source as they can be, we analyze information that identifies visitors by categories such as the location of visitors by domain, and browser types. We also measure, in the aggregate, indicators such as number of visits, average time spent on the sites, and pages viewed. ACHP uses these statistics to improve site content and usability; this information does not identify visitors personally.

However, when a visitor enters membership information for the purpose of logging in to restricted pages, a “temporary cookie” is deployed. This cookie – a small text file stored temporarily on the visitor’s browser – enables the Web site to “remember” this authentication information during movement from one page to another. This makes it unnecessary to log in again on each page.

With the exception of specific secured pages, visitors are not required to be ACHP members in order to gain access to ACHP’s Web sites, although nonmembers may be required to register to receive all benefits available to users of the sites.  Non-members have access to a directory for the purpose of finding an ACHP member.

The ACHP may use personally identifiable information you have voluntarily provided on our Web sites or by other means to notify you via e-mail or printed material of ACHP events or other relevant products and services offered by ACHP. ACHP may produce a directory of members for networking purposes. If you do not want to receive notice of such events or be included in directories, you may choose to opt out by the means detailed in the “Opting Out” section of this policy.

Disclosure of Information to Third Parties
If you voluntarily provide ACHP with personally identifiable information, ACHP may release that information on a selective basis to outside organizations whose products and services are of perceived benefit. These organizations include, but are not limited to:
Various companies that authenticate credit cards on behalf of ACHP if you provide a credit card for the purchase of products or services.

ACHP chapters, which may solicit you for local participation or membership. In the case of ACHP members, ACHP chapter may publish your name in a directory or use your data to mail or e-mail local materials, unless you contact the chapter and opt out of such disclosure.

ACHP may provide mailing information to other organizations whose products and services are of perceived benefit. If you do not want the ACHP to provide your personally identifiable information to third parties other than ACHP chapters or as noted above, please see “Opting Out” section of this policy.

There are other instances in which ACHP may divulge your personal information. The ACHP may provide your personal information if necessary, in ACHP’s good faith judgment, to comply with laws or regulations of a governmental or regulatory body or in response to a valid subpoena, warrant or order or to protect the rights of the ACHP or others.
