APABA-DC’s Privacy Policy

Effective: April 10, 2011

Our Commitment To Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used

The Information We Collect

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the APABA-DC website, as well as through applications made to APABA-DC through other means. On some pages, you can make requests or register to receive materials or information. The types of personal information collected at these pages are:

  • Name
  • Mailing addresses
  • Email addresses
  • Phone number

In addition, a voluntary profile can be completed, which includes the following types of information:

  • Education
  • Work Experience
  • Practice Area(s)
  • Type of law practice
  • Positions held with APABA-DC
  • Bar(s) / Year Admitted
  • Asian language proficiency
  • Other Asian language skills or interests

The Way We Use Information

We use the information you provide about yourself to provide membership services, including weekly announcements, newsletters, press releases, and other e-mail announcements. The majority of the information is viewable only by APABA-DC Board Members, Officers and Coordinators, and the database administrator. However, our website has a member database that can be used by any other registered member who logs into the APABA-DC website to search for specific members by location, specialty, etc. You have the ability to hide certain or all of your information from being viewed by members searching the database. We also will provide your name and contact information (1) to the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (“NAPABA”) because membership in APABA-DC includes membership in our national organization, and (2) to the Asian Pacific American Bar Association Educational Fund (“AEF”), our charitable affiliate, for the purpose of sending invitations to the AEF Annual Benefit Dinner. Except for NAPABA and AEF, we will not provide individually-identifiable information about members to third parties, unless we are compelled to do so by order of a duly-empowered governmental authority, we have the express permission of the member, or it is necessary to process transactions and provide our services.

We may solicit RSVPs to attend our events via a social networking website. If you choose to RSVP for an event by responding via a social networking website, your RSVP may be displayed to others viewing the event invitation. Should you wish for your attendance to remain anonymous, you may RSVP directly to an APABA-DC Board Member, Officer or Coordinator. To facilitate networking at an event for which you RSVP’d yes, we may make available your name and affiliation to APABA-DC members who also RSVP’d yes to that event. If you prefer not to have your information released, please let the APABA-DC Board Member, Officer or Coordinator know when RSVPing for the event.

By attending an APABA-DC event, you are consenting to our use of any photograph of you taken at the event, along with your name, in our newsletters, on our website or on our social networking sites, or for other non-commercial purposes consistent with our overall mission. If you do not want your name or photograph used, please let the APABA-DC Board Member, Officer or Coordinator know when RSVPing for the event.

Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of personally identifiable information, we, along with our database administrator Memberclicks, have put in place appropriate procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information

You can access your member profile at the APABA-DC website by using your assigned username and password. While logged in, you may review or modify all parts of your member profile data. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information.

You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a written request that specifies updates or removal of profile data.

To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
