Use of Your Information
IPA uses your personal information to operate the website (member logins) and process requests (event registration, membership signup, product purchase, etc.). IPA will not sell, rent, or lease personal information to third parties. IPA will only disclose personal information if it is necessary to complete a transaction or when required to do so by law.

Upon joining IPA, members have the option to ‘include personal information’ in the IPA directory. This information is available only to other IPA members once logged into the IPA website under ‘Member Directory.’
IPA uses third parties to provide specific services to the association and its members. We share only the information required in order to fulfill the service. These parties are not allowed to use this information except for the explicit purpose of the service and are required to maintain its confidentiality.
Sensitive information shared via the website is protected both online and offline. Wherever sensitive information (such as credit card data) is submitted, it is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way.
