IPAC.CA Site/Membership Registration Forms
Our site's secured registration forms require users to give us contact information (like name, mailing address and email address), method of payment, and demographic information. We use customer contact information from the registration forms to send the user information about the Institute. The customer's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. Information regarding method of payment is collected for member enrolment, registration and to process orders for products and services. External Links
IPAC.CA contains links to other external web sites that do not fall under the IPAC.CA domain. IPAC.CA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such external web sites. If you choose to follow such links to external websites, you do so at your own risk.
E-Commerce for Conference Registration/Publications Sales/Institute, News & Commentary Subscriptions
Our site uses a secure order form for members and others to register for conferences, request information, purchase products, and services. We collect visitor's contact information (like name, mailing address and email address) and method of payment. Contact information from the order form is used to process orders and to send information about our association. User payment information that is collected is used to check the users' qualifications and bill the user for products and services. This information is transmitted via a secure channel.
Our online secure surveys ask respondents for contact information (like email address) and demographic information (like postal code, age range). We also may use contact data from our surveys to send information about our association.
This site will eventually make chat rooms, forums, e-mail lists and message boards available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. Although IPAC.CA tries to protect your personal information when using these public forums, IPAC.CA cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.
