Standards for the Protection of Personal Information
We Respect Your Privacy
At CARS, we are committed to providing you with superior services, along with the peace of mind knowing that the security of your personal information is our top priority. We understand your concerns about guarding information about you and we want to assure you that we have taken steps and will continue to take steps, to safeguard that information.
1. What Personal Information Do We Collect?
In connection with applications for membership to CARS and in order for you to enjoy our services, it is necessary that we collect certain personal information about you. We obtain this information from applications and other forms you submit to us and from other sources, such as our Web site. We obtain information such as your name, address, date of birth, e-mail address, or postal address as necessary to perform services on your behalf, to make our services more conveniently available to you, or to fulfill the Department of Electronic Communications requirements. “Personal information” does not include information that is lawfully obtained from publicly available sources, or from state or local government records lawfully made available to the general public.
2. Is Personal Information Shared with Others?
CARS respects your privacy and we will not share personal information we collect about you except as required by law or with your permission. CARS shares public data but not personal information. For amateur radio license examinations applicants, we are required to share the collected information with the Department of Electronic Communication.
3. How Do We Protect the Confidentiality, Security and Integrity of Personal Information?
CARS safeguards personal information contained in both paper and electronic records. Properly securing the information we collect is a primary commitment. We meet security and privacy standards for both e-commerce and personal information, ensuring the security and confidentiality of such information in a manner consistent with industry practices.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect the information we collect. Access to such information is restricted to authorized officials of CARS who need it in order to perform transactions related to Amateur Radio licenses or to provide services to you. These officials are trained in the proper handling of such information.
