The IUSSP collects a variety of demographic and descriptive data about its members through the IUSSP membership application form and profile pages. The IUSSP uses this data to communicate directly with members as well as for staff to better provide benefits and services to the membership. Some information is also made available to other IUSSP members in the Membership directory.


Aside from some basic contact and demographic information, which are required, members can choose which information they wish to provide. Members may go to the IUSSP website and identify what information is made available to other members. They can also choose not to appear in the Membership directory.


The IUSSP may make name and mailing address information available to third parties, but only those who are identified as providing information deemed likely to be of interest to the IUSSP membership. Members can also choose, in their member account settings, not to appear in the membership directory, in which case their information will not be made available to third parties.


Our website does not track, collect or distribute personal information about visitors. We do, however, regularly compile aggregate statistics that show the number of visitors to our website, the requests we receive for particular information on the website, and the Internet service providers (ISPs) that those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used by internal IUSSP technical support staff to improve the website in an on-going effort to provide better information and services to the public.


The IUSSP does collect information when users and members log in to the website and upload or edit content. This information is used to improve your experience on the website and ensure all website features function properly. It may also be used to monitor new user-posted content to ensure that objectionable content is not posted to the website. We reserve the right to edit or restrict any User Content posted to the site.


IUSSP only uses credit card information to process payments authorized by the individual. Credit card information is collected online through a secure payment system managed by Stripe, which provides a secure transaction site for credit card payments. IUSSP does not receive or store any credit card information on its website or servers; your credit card information is entered directly on the Stripe website.
