The Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM) has a strong commitment to privacy, recognizing that we are a public association. This statement outlines the policies and procedures concerning information gathering and dissemination practices for our Web site, www.sbm.org.
Collecting and Using User Information
SBM collects information in different ways from those who access our site. We use this information primarily to provide a customized experience as you use our Site and, do not share this information with third parties. However, we may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law, or in other special cases described below.
Our site uses order forms for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect users’ contact information (e.g., name and e-mail address) and financial information (e.g., account or credit card numbers). Financial information is used to bill the user for products and services and then is deleted from our records in compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Contact information from the order form is used to send orders, contact the user regarding any problems with the order, and to provide the user with information about our association, including promotional materials. Users may opt out of receiving future communications at any time by contacting the SBM national office at email@example.com.
Current SBM members' contact information is made available through the Membership Directory. This information is only available to other current SBM members. Members may opt out of being listed in the Membership Directory; see the Updating User Profile section below.
