Information Collection and Use; Protection of E-Mail Addresses
Some areas of the SHAA web site are publicly available. Other areas are restricted or made available based on
the personal identifying information (such as name, e-mail address, membership level, username and password),
should the person choose to become a member or become affiliated with SHAA (such as to view CELL
materials). SHAA is the sole owner of all the information collected on the SHAA web site and may use and
share with third parties any and all of the information collected in any manner whatsoever that it deems
appropriate for business purposes in its sole discretion.
Security, Including for Online Payments
All pages on the SHAA web site are “secure,” and information entered on the web site is encrypted and is
protected with encryption software, Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL"). SHAA requests contact information from its
users, including billing information, but sensitive information such as credit card numbers are not available to
SHAA and are not retained on SHAA’s web site. (SHAA only sees the last four digits of card numbers.)
The SHAA website uses computer cookies for several business purposes. Primarily, when visitors arrive at our
site, a unique cookie is automatically stored on the visitor's computer by their Internet browser that allows
analysis software to differentiate between new and returning users. This cookie is set to expire fairly quickly.
SHAA provides links to advertisers' web sites and other sites of interest in hopes that you will find valuable
resources there. While our advertisers have interests related to the fields of speech-language pathology and
audiology, SHAA cannot be held responsible for the information or content found on their sites, for
advertisements they may contain, or for any requests they might make for personal information.
You may find the links unavailable at times, and you might even be redirected to an unexpected web site. Please
understand that SHAA cannot control these events.
Communication from SHAA
SHAA sends all new members a welcoming e-mail to verify password and username. SHAA occasionally sends
email notifications re: research being conducted, continuing education opportunities and other professional
matters. SHAA will also send reminders of renewals and other communications to members via e-mail. SHAA,
at its sole discretion, also sends mailings related to its annual convention and other materials of its choosing,
such as a newsletter or membership directory.
Correcting/Updating Personal Information
Users have control of all the information they have submitted on the SHAA web site. Users are encouraged to
