Privacy Policy

The Academy of Prosthodontics (AP) obtains information from its Fellows and guests for the annual Fellowship dues and/or for registration at the Academy’s annual scientific sessions and Business Meeting. This information may be expanded or updated as we change or develop our site. For this reason, we recommend that you review this policy from time-to-time to see if anything has changed.

The Academy values its Fellows and guests and respects their privacy. Fellowship in the Academy is focused on prosthodontic specialists with verified credentials from accredited university programs. We collect Fellow /guest information such as name, e-mail and postal addresses, and phone numbers when you visit our secure website. Your continued use of our site and renewal of your Fellowship signifies your acceptance of our privacy policy. To help ensure your privacy, we recommend not sharing your login information with others.

Fellow and guest entered information is accessible only by Academy managers, our accountants, Secretary-Treasurer and Webmaster. The information is stored on a non-public, secured site. Fellows can access Fellows-only areas of the site using their personal login and password codes. Personally identifiable information refers to information that tells us specifically who a Fellow is, such as name, phone number, email or postal address. In most cases, this information is of benefit, or even essential, for the Academy to provide the required services and includes information such as a history of Fellowship dues and meeting payments. A Fellow can view, update and control the privacy of all of their own personal and contact information using our Fellow Profile Manager, and may only view other Fellows’ contact information if the other Fellows have designated their own privacy settings so as to be accessible to other Fellows.

The amount of personally identifiable information that a Fellow chooses to disclose to the Academy is completely up to the Fellow. The minimum information required to maintain Fellowship is a Fellows first name, last name and valid email address. Fellows wishing to resign Fellowship may request their personal information be completely deleted from our Fellowship records. The public does not have access to the Fellows' information.

The Academy does not sell or give your personal information to third parties. When the Academy uses other companies to provide services for us, the Academy requires them to protect the confidentially of the personal information they receive.

Please note: Electronic transmission of credit card and contact information for Fellowship dues payments are handled by a secure third party e-commerce transaction provider (Elavon) and are not stored at any time within the Academy's web site, web servers or in other files.

We also collect, store, and accumulate certain non-personally identifiable information concerning your use of this website, such as: which of our pages and services are of most interest to our Fellows, prospective Fellows and the public. The information the Academy collects is used in a variety of ways: for internal review; to improve the content of the site, thus making your user experience more valuable.

Cookies are the method used for the AP Fellow login authentication and session management only. We do not use the method to store any private data or for viewer personalization, nor do we use cookies on publicly accessible areas of the website. The login scripts require a Fellow to allow a cookie to be set to retain the identity of the Fellow for the duration of their session in the non-public areas of AP website. Users of the AP site may delete cookies between sessions with no ill effect on subsequent visits to the site but will be denied access to Fellows-only pages if cookies are blocked altogether.

If a change to this Privacy Policy and/or the way we use personally identifiable information, we will post prominent notice of the nature of such change at the top of this Privacy Policy page and on our home page.
