We will collect and retain certain personal information from you when needed to process your transactions (including purchases of goods and services), fulfill your requests for information, allow you to access certain services or areas of AVMA Websites such as online communities, or maintain our membership records. The type of personal information we collect will vary but may include your name, contact information (address, phone number, billing and delivery information, email address), credit card or other financial account information, and other demographic information. The type of information you provide will determine the personal information that is collected.
If you purchase a product or service at any AVMA Website, we will not give out your credit card number or other financial account information to third parties unless you authorize us to do so, or it is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities with respect to the transaction, including but not limited to delivering a product or service you order.
Our online member directory contains specific personal and professional information, depending on the information you provide to the AVMA through your membership application or updates to your online profile. Access to online member directory information is available only to AVMA members. However, we may occasionally provide, sell, or rent limited member data to third parties, such as companies that offer products and services related to veterinary medicine for sale to AVMA members. See below for more information on AVMA’s information-sharing practices.

We use this information to track and analyze traffic to AVMA Websites, including the number of visitors and which pages are viewed by visitors, and to help us improve AVMA Websites. We may also share this information in aggregate with advertisers and sponsors to determine advertising effectiveness.
