The International Association of Environmental Professionals (INASEP) is a professional membership association for people who work in the environmental field. We do not knowingly attempt to solicit or receive information from children.

We understand that you are aware of and care about your own personal privacy interests, and we take that seriously. This Privacy Notice describes INASEP’s policies and practices regarding its collection and use of your personal data, and sets forth your privacy rights. We recognize that information privacy is an ongoing responsibility, and so we will from time to time update this Privacy Notice as we undertake new personal data practices or adopt new privacy policies.

How we collect and use (process) your personal information

INASEP collects personal information about its members and other customers. With a few exceptions, this information is limited to similar information that can be found on a business card: first name, last name, job title, employer name, work address, work email, and work phone number. We use this information to provide members and customers with goods and services, including membership services, privacy and data protection content, certification, training, and the like. We do not sell personal information to anyone and only share it with third parties who are facilitating the delivery of INASEP services.

Use of the website

As is true of most other websites, INASEP’s website collects certain information automatically and stores it in log files. The information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, the region or general location where your computer or device is accessing the internet, browser type, operating system and other usage information about the use of INASEP’s website, including a history of the pages you view. We use this information to help us design our site to better suit our users’ needs. We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website, analyze trends, track visitor movements, and gather broad demographic information that assists us in identifying visitor preferences.

INASEP has a legitimate interest in understanding how members, customers and potential customers use its website. This assists INASEP with providing more relevant products and services, with communicating value to our sponsors and corporate members, and with providing appropriate staffing to meet member and customer needs.

When and how we share information with others

Information about your INASEP purchases and certification status are maintained in association with your membership or profile account. The personal information INASEP collects from you is stored in one or more databases hosted by third parties located in Canada or the United States. These third parties do not use or have access to your personal information for any purpose other than cloud storage and retrieval. On occasion, INASEP may engage third parties to mail information to you, including items like books or other resources you may have purchased, or material from an event sponsor.

Transferring personal data from the EU and the US to Canada

INASEP has its headquarters in Canada. Information we collect from you will be processed in Canada. INASEP collects and transfers to Canada personal data only: with your consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of INASEP in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms. INASEP endeavours to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your personal data and to use it only consistent with your relationship with INASEP and the practices described in this Privacy Notice. INASEP also enters into data processing agreements and model clauses with its vendors whenever feasible and appropriate.
