Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your contact information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request or distribute as a conference contact list at the conference itself to attendees along with providing current conference attendee list to the National Hydrologic Warning Council
Mailing List Subscription
If desired a user may signup to be on the AUG mailing list. During signup a user is required to give certain information (specifically name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the events/services on our site in which you have expressed interest.
We request information from you on our conference registration form. To register for a conference, you must provide contact information (like name, organization and billing address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your registration requests. If we have trouble processing an order, we'll use this information to contact you.
We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site. At this time we do not respond to â€œdo not trackâ€ signals issued by web browsers.
We use a credit card processing company to bill users for conference registration and services. This company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
From time-to-time our site requests information via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name, organization and email address). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of the ALERT Users Group and this site.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
