Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Online Privacy

Thank you for using the Annual Meeting web site of the American Council on Education (ACE).

ACE is committed to protecting your online privacy, and this notice explains ACE’s online information practices and how your information is collected and used on ACE’s website. So that this notice is easy to find, it is available to all visitors to the ACE Annual Meeting website, linked to in at the bottom of each page. 

The details of this privacy notice are shared with all ACE employees in order to protect the confidentiality of your personal information.

Anonymous Visitor Access

You can view the Annual Meeting home page and most interior web pages without disclosing any personal information.

Visitors to the website are not able to communicate with other visitors and cannot post information to be accessed by other visitors. ACE does not automatically log personal data nor do we link information automatically logged by other means with personal data about specific individuals.

ACE does not use cookies to store personal data nor does ACE link nonpersonal information stored in cookies with personal data about specific individuals. ACE does use cookies to track usage of the ACE web site using web log analysis software. These cookies are used to track how visitors are using the ACE web site. These cookies do not, and cannot, provide ACE with personal information about visitors.

Personal Visitor Information

We collect the personal information that you may volunteer while using the electronic services on the ACE web site, such as completing a registration form or sending us e-mail. We do not collect information about our visitors from other sources, such as public records or entities, or private organizations. We do not disclose your personal data to our subsidiaries or other organizations except as required by law or in situations involving threats to the physical safety of any person.

Information submitted to ACE by an individual acting solely in a business capacity is excluded from the scope of this privacy notice.

How We Use Information Collected via Online Communication

We use the information you provide about yourself when using our online services to complete the specific service transaction. A list of attendee names, titles, and addresses is made available to meeting sponsors and exhibitors; no other information is shared with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that registration.

For e-mail correspondence not collected via online services on our web site, we routinely use the return e-mail addresses to answer the e-mail we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

How to Opt Out of Communication with ACE

If you would like to discontinue communication from ACE, you may email annualmeeting@acenet.edu stating that you would like to be removed from annual meeting mailing lists.

Our Commitment to Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Information obtained via online registration forms is encrypted, using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. An SSL connection ensures privacy, authentication, and message integrity. The ACE web site also uses a Verisign digital certificate (www.verisign.com). With Verisign and SSL technology, information sent via the Internet is encrypted and authenticated to protect access to communications and transactions.

URLs beginning with “https://” indicate that an SSL connection is being used.

Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. We never collect or maintain information at our web site from persons we know to be under age 13, and no part of our web site is designed to attract anyone under age 13. Please do not communicate with or contact us if you are under age 13.
