Electronic Privacy Policy

Last updated: August 1, 2023


The Southwest Ohio Chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) (hereinafter "SWOHACFE") understands that online privacy is important and wants you to understand our online privacy practices. This Electronic Privacy Policy applies to your use of our website (e.g., swohacfe.org) and our apps for Apple iOS or Android, that post this policy (our “Resources”).

1. Information We Collect and Use

A. Information That You Provide - We, and our vendors, may collect personal information directly from you, including your first and last name, email address, phone number, address, payment account information, Social Security number, gender, age, state of residence, zip code, and interests.

B. Information Collected Through Tracking Technologies - We, and our vendors, may collect information through the use of cookies, web beacons, location-identifying technologies, in-app tracking methods and other tracking technologies (“Tracking Technologies”). This information includes IP address, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamps, interactions with the Resources or emails, and browsing and purchasing behavior. Tracking Technologies may be used for various purposes, such as to associate different devices you use and deliver relevant ads and/or other content to you on the Resources and certain other online properties.

For more information on Google Analytics and to exercise choices regarding the use of Google Analytics cookies or to download the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on, go to https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout; for Adobe Analytics go to http://www.adobe.com/privacy/opt-out.html; and for Microsoft Advertising go to https://privacy.microsoft.com/en-us/privacystatement.

To opt out of certain interest-based advertising tracking technologies, visit the Digital Advertising Alliance’s http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices and the Network Advertising Initiative’s http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt out of certain kinds of interest-based advertising, you may continue to receive other types of ads. In addition, although your browser settings may allow you to transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit, currently the Resources may not be configured to respond to “Do Not Track” signals.

C. How We Use Information Collected

Subject to the terms of any other applicable Privacy Policies, we may use information about you for any purposes not inconsistent with our statements under this Electronic Privacy Policy, or otherwise made by us in writing at the point of collection, and not prohibited by applicable law, including, without limitation, the following:

  • Allow you to participate in the features we offer on the Resources;
  • Facilitate, manage, personalize, and improve your online experience;
  • Process your registration, manage your account and/or upload your user-generated content that you may post to the Resources;
  • Transact with you, provide services or information you request, respond to your comments, questions and requests, serve you content and/or advertising, and send you notices;
  • Our marketing and other purposes;
  • Improve the Resources and for any other internal business purposes;
  • Fulfill other purposes disclosed at the time you provide personal information or otherwise where we are legally permitted or are required to do so; and
  • Prevent and address fraud, breach of policies or terms, and threats or harm.

Access to pages on the Resources that contain content specific to Members is password-protected and requires active membership. As noted above, depending upon your relationship with us, you may receive other privacy notices from us providing additional detail about our privacy practices and your privacy rights in other contexts.

We and third parties may convert your personal information, as permitted by applicable law, into aggregate or deidentified information where we, or others, are unable to identify you.

We will store your personal information for no longer than is necessary for the performance of our obligations or to achieve the purposes for which the information was collected, or as may be required or permitted under applicable law.

2. Information We Disclose

Subject to the forgoing, we may share personal information for any purposes not inconsistent with this Electronic Privacy Policy (or to the extent applicable, any other applicable Privacy Policy), or our written statements at the point of collection, and otherwise not prohibited by applicable law, including, without limitation:

  • With our vendors, who may receive information in connection with their work on our behalf;
  • To comply with the law, law enforcement or other legal process, and, where permitted, in response to a government request; and
  • If we believe your actions are inconsistent with our terms of use, user agreements, applicable terms or policies, or to protect the rights, property, life, health, security and safety of SWOHACFE, the Resources or their users, or any third party.

3. Choices Regarding Your Information

A. Mobile Apps

With respect to our mobile apps, you can stop all collection of data generated by use of the app by uninstalling the app. Also, you may be able to exercise specific privacy choices, such as enabling or disabling certain features (e.g., location-based services, push notifications, accessing calendar/contacts/photos, etc.), by adjusting the permissions in your mobile device and/or the app’s settings.

B. Communications

You can opt out of receiving promotional email communications from us at any time by following the instructions provided in emails to click on the unsubscribe link, or if available by changing your communication preferences by logging in to your account, and for app push notifications you can turn off push notifications on the settings of your device and/or the app, as applicable. Please note that your opt-out selection is limited to the email address used and will not affect subsequent subscriptions. If you opt-out of only certain communications, other subscription communications may continue. Even if you opt out of receiving promotional communications, SWOHACFE may, subject to applicable law, continue to send you non-promotional communications, such as those about your account, transactions, servicing, or SWOHACFE's ongoing business relations.

C. Accessing or Changing Personal Information

We may provide webpages or other mechanisms allowing you to delete, correct, or update some of the personal information, and potentially certain other information about you (e.g., profile and account information). We will make good faith efforts to make requested changes in our contact or membership database as soon as practicable, but it is not always possible to completely change, remove or delete all of your information or public postings from Resources and residual and/or cached data may remain archived thereafter. Further, we reserve the right to retain data (a) as required by applicable law; and (b) for so long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the data is retained except to the extent prohibited by applicable law.

4. Third-Party Services and Hyperlinks

The Resources may include hyperlinks to, or include on or in connection with, the Resources (e.g., plug-ins), websites, locations, platforms, applications or services operated by third parties.

Certain functionalities on the Resources may permit interactions that you initiate between the Resources and certain third-party services, such as third-party social networks. For example, enabling you to send content such as contacts and photos between the Resources and a third-party service; “liking” or “sharing” our content; and to otherwise connect the Resources to a third-party service (e.g., to pull or push information to or from the Resources). If you connect to a third-party service, information you post or provide access to may be publicly displayed on the Resources or by the third-party service that you use. Similarly, if you post information on a third-party service that references the Resources (e.g., by using a hashtag associated with our name in a tweet or status update), your post may be used on or in connection with the Resources or otherwise by us. Also, both we and the third party may have access to certain information about you and your use of the Resources and any third-party service. We may use Google Maps APIs, which may collect geolocation data, subject to Google’s Privacy Policy.

The information collected, stored, and shared by third parties remains subject to their privacy policies and practices, including whether they continue to share information with us, the types of information shared, and your choices on what is visible to others on third-party services. We are not responsible for, and make no representations regarding, the policies or business practices of any third parties.

5. Data Security

SWOHACFE takes reasonable measures, consistent with applicable law, to protect personal information from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Nevertheless, transmission via the internet and online digital storage are not completely secure, and we do not guarantee the security of your information collected through the Resources.

6. International

Because SWOHACFE is based in the U.S. in the State of Ohio, the information we collect is governed by U.S. law. If you are accessing the Resources from outside of the U.S., please be aware that information collected through the Resources may be transferred to, processed, stored, and used in the U.S. Data protection laws in the U.S. may be different from those of your country of residence. Your use of the Resources or provision of any information therefore constitutes your consent to the transfer to and from, processing, usage, sharing, and storage of your information, including personal information, in the U.S. as set forth in this Electronic Privacy Policy.

7. Modifications

We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions of this policy from time to time. You can always find out about any such changes, and access the most current version of this Electronic Privacy Policy, by clicking “Privacy Policy” on the homepage of our website.

8. Consent

By using our Resources, you signify your consent to this Electronic Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use the Resources.

9. Terms of Use and Disclaimers

Our Electronic Privacy Policy does not supersede the Terms of Use and Disclaimers found in the Terms and Conditions that govern your use of our Resources. Any conflict between the two shall be determined in favor of such Terms of Use and Disclaimers.
