The Association of Academic Physiatrists (the "AAP") is committed to treating your personal data with care and respect. This statement explains our data practices and the choices you can make about the way the information you provide us is collected and used. For easy and direct access, we provide a link to this statement from the footer of our home page and all other pages of the website (the "Site").
What Information We Collect
The AAP collects data to operate effectively and provide you with the best experiences from our services. When you browse www.physiatry.org or www.ajpmr.com and do not interact with the site for any online service or product from the AAP, you browse anonymously. Information that identifies you personally—such as your name, address, phone number and email address—is not collected as you browse. We do not store sensitive information such as credit card or social security numbers. When you create an account to become a registered user on our sites, or choose to interact with us in other ways, such as subscribing to AAP publications, purchasing an AAP product, applying for AAP membership, participating in online surveys, submitting questions or comments or requesting information or materials, we will collect certain personal information from you. You will be asked for your contact information, such as your name, email address, address, work setting, profession, principal professional field, phone number, educational credentials and country of residence ("Personal Information"). The Personal Information is linked directly to a personal User Name and Password chosen by the user and can be retrieved only by supplying the correct User Name and Password that is linked to that account. It is the user’s responsibility to maintain his/her password securely and to confirm the accuracy of his/her information. For individuals without a registered account on the Site, we will require explicit consent to collect data.
How We Use Personal Information
If consent is given, the AAP will use your Personal Information to send targeted and non-targeted content via email and direct mail on the AAP’s programs and services, events, special offers, newsletters, organizational announcements, surveys and membership news. If you are an active member of the AAP (meaning your dues payments are up-to-date and membership is not expired), we will also share your information with other active members in our Member Directory if you give consent when creating an account. In addition, the personal information of active members is shared with our official medical journal, The American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (“AJPMR”) for announcements on the latest releases.
Your Choices & Opting Out
If you wish to have any personal data corrected or deleted at any time, you can (1) update your permissions and information through your registered account using your secure User Name and Password; (2) email firstname.lastname@example.org; or call the AAP office at 410-654-1000. You may opt out of receiving AAP emails at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each communication. You may also opt out of receiving direct mail communications from the AAP, AJPMR and/or its business partners by emailing us at email@example.com or calling the AAP offices at 410-654-1000. You may opt-out of targeted ads served on our behalf by clicking on the blue icon that typically appears in the corner of the ads served or by clicking here. If you have any questions about this Privacy Notice or our privacy practices, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
