Information Collection and Use
We will collect personally identifiable information that you provide to us, including, but not limited to, your name, employer’s name, address(es), telephone and fax numbers, e-mail address, and credit card information. COMMON may use and store such information in order to notify you of official COMMON business; provide a product or service you requested; secure your membership status; analyze, evaluate, and improve member and prospective member needs and interests; track continuing education related activities; alert you of COMMON news, activities, programs, services, and benefits; and for other legitimate and lawful business purposes. Personally identifiable information may be given to a third party in order to complete a specific business transaction on behalf of COMMON. Contact information from inquiries received by COMMON may be shared with COMMON members to provide a service, satisfy a question, or develop a prospective business relationship.
We may disclose personally identifiable information to the proper authorities if we become subject to a subpoena or court order or if we are otherwise legally required to disclose such information. We also may use and disclose information about you to establish or exercise our legal rights, to enforce the Terms and Conditions of Use, to assert and defend against legal claims, or if we believe such disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding actual or suspected illegal or fraudulent activities or potential threats to the physical safety or well-being of any person. If all or part of COMMON is merged into or otherwise transferred to another entity, we may transfer the personally identifiable information you provided to us to such entity as part of that transaction.
