How Personal Information Is Shared With Third-Parties
Without the user's consent, CFAR Society will not sell, trade, or disclose the user's personally identifiable information to third parties that want to market products to the user. However, CFAR Society may disclose information to third parties assisting us in carrying out a transaction or providing a service for you (e.g., packaging, sending and delivering purchases and information to you, clearing credit card transactions, or performing statistical analyses of our services), or in connection with merger and acquisition discussions. Additionally, CFAR Society may disclose information when required by subpoena, search warrant, or other legal process, or in response to activities that are unlawful or a violation of CFAR Society rules for use of the website, or to protect and defend the rights or property of CFAR Society.
CFAR Society has implemented technological and operational security processes to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or unintentional destruction.
