This privacy statement may be changed at any time; if any changes are made, they will be posted to this page.
Collection of Information About Our Visitors
For each visitor to our website, our web server collects general information that does not identify a specific visitor or a visitor's email address. Only the host name or IP address (a unique number that is assigned to your computer every time you connect to the Internet) from which the site was accessed are identified. We use this information to calculate the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, and to help protect the information in the members-only area of our website.
When you register for an event, purchase merchandise, or make a CREW Network Foundation donation, the type of personally identifiable information that CREW Network collects may include name, address, email address, telephone number, fax number, and credit card information. CREW Network may also collect information about your preferences for events, activities, and options at a CREW Network event for which you register.
Authorized members of CREW Network staff or CREW Network members may correct, update, or supplement personal and professional information.
Use of the Information
CREW Network may use the information you provide about yourself to fulfill your requests for CREW Network products, programs, and services, and to respond to your inquiries.
Information you provide through your membership application or renewal and when updating your personal record is used to ensure that CREW Network may deliver electronic newsletters, notices of events, and other member entitlements to you in a timely manner. This information is made available to current CREW Network members seeking to develop or further business or contacts with other members. This information is not made publicly available, but may be made available to contractors or consultants doing work for CREW Network.
Agents and contractors of CREW Network who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for CREW Network.
Member passwords, assigned by CREW Network or selected by the member, are not made available to any person or entity other than the member and to authorized staff members of CREW Network.
CREW Network may disclose any user's personally identifiable information in response to a law enforcement agency's request or legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena.
CREW Network will take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, but cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that is collected will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Statement.
CREW Network will not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us in ways unrelated to the ones described above.

If you supply CREW Network with your postal address and/or email address online, you may receive periodic mailings from CREW Network with information on new products and services or upcoming events.
Security of Credit Card Information
CREW Network and CREW Network Foundation are fully committed to data security. CREW Network has put in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information you provide to us online. When you register for an event, purchase merchandise, or make a CREW Network Foundation donation, CREW Network’s secure server software (SSL) encrypts all personal information, including credit card number/expiration date, name and address. CREW Network uses this information to process your registration, order, or donation only. CREW Network does not use this data for any other purpose.
