    1. If you join MFSHRM membership through our website, you provide personally identifiable information on the membership application. MFSHRM does not sell mailing lists (names and mailing addresses) or e-mail addresses of members to third-parties. We may, from time to time, provide your information to a sponsor/exhibitor, yet only if you attended the meeting that sponsor sponsored or a workshop where the exhibitor exhibited.
    1. Anonymous information. We may disclose to third-party advertisers aggregate statistics (i.e., impressions and click-throughs on a company's advertisement). Also, we may share aggregate website statistics with the media or other third parties. No personally identifiable information is disclosed to these advertisers or other third parties as part of this process-only information in an aggregate form.
    1. Be aware that MFSHRM's advertisers and third-party content providers may have links on our site that take you to other websites. For example, when you click on an ad displayed on the MFSHRM website, you may be linked to another site. Please note also that links to other websites are provided throughout the MFSHRM website for users' information and convenience. MFSHRM hopes that all third parties involved adhere to our policies regarding the privacy of our users.

    You are ultimately responsible for the security of your MFSHRM username and password. You should not share your MFSHRM username and password with colleagues or friends so they can access content or features on the MFSHRM website that are restricted to MFSHRM members only. You should log out of your browser at the end of each computer session to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence, especially if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.
