Version 1.0 Released June 15, 2019

This Privacy Policy describes how the Global Sales Operations Association (sopsa.org) collects, uses, shares and secures the personal information you provide. It also describes your choices regarding use, access and correction of your personal information. By using this Site or our Services you acknowledge your consent to the practices described herein. If you do not agree with this policy, do not access or use our Services or interact with any other aspect of our business.

Information We Collect

In order for you to use our Services and other features of our Site, we may ask you for some of your personal data (e.g. contact information, name, etc.). The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. You can always refuse to supply personal data, however, doing so may prevent you from receiving our Services and may prevent you from engaging in other activities on the Site. In no event will we ever request sensitive personal data from you, and we expressly request that you not provide any such sensitive personal data to us in any free-text fields that are present on the Site.

Various pages on this Site invite you to provide us your name and contact details; for example, to receive our email newsletter, enter contests, or to create an account to access our Services. If you choose to purchase products or services on our Site, we collect additional information necessary to process the transactions. By voluntarily providing information to us when using the Site, you are consenting to the collection and use of your personal information by us.

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer the site.

Information Sharing

We do not sell or market your personal information to third parties.

  • Payment processing;

In certain situations, The Global Sales Operations Association may be required to disclose personal data when we believe disclosure is reasonably required to comply with any law or legal request, to enforce our legal and contractual rights, or to protect the rights and safety of others.

Third Party Links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Security

This Site uses Secure Socket Layer encryption technology to help ensure that your interactions with our Site and Services remain secure. Online transactions are transmitted securely to our payment processors and credit card information is not stored within our database, except for the card type and last 4 digits. We make every effort to prevent against a security threat, but no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

In the event of a discovered or suspected Security Event, the Global Sales Operations Association shall provide notice without undue delay to customer contacts using those means established for routine account-related communications.

You can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. If you reject cookies, you may still use our Site, but your ability to use some features or areas of our Site and Services may be limited. We do not use cookies to deliver or target ads on our site, and no advertising partners on our site are able to set cookies.
