Privacy Policy

The Emerging Research Library (ERL) is committed to protecting the privacy of its members and customers. ERL recognizes the interest of its members and customers in the confidentiality of their personal information. ERL only maintains personal information that is relevant to ERL activities and seeks to maintain accurate, complete, and timely information.

The security of personal information is important to ERL. ERL maintains all personal data with technical, administrative, and physical safeguards to protect against loss, unauthorized access, destruction, misuse, modification, and improper disclosure. No computer system or information can ever be fully protected against every possible hazard. ERL provides reasonable and appropriate security controls to protect personal information against foreseeable hazards.

ERL maintains member databases that contain mailing, billing, and member profile information, as well as a record of each member's product and service purchases. ERL also maintains databases of member and non-member purchases and of registrations for conferences and other ERL activities. The information in these databases is used by authorized ERL staff members to process orders; mail invoices, purchases, renewal notices, and announcements; respond to member inquiries; and help us improve our offerings. Member records are maintained as long as an individual is an ERL member and for two years following a membership lapse. Purchases and credit card transactions are retained for as long as appropriate to meet contractual, tax, or auditing needs.

All personally identifiable information contained in ERL membership, purchase, and registration databases is treated as confidential and will be used only for the purposes stated in this policy, except where required by law.

Just like any other record keeper, ERL may be required to disclose personal information in response to valid legal process. This includes a search warrant, subpoena, or court order. Disclosures may also be appropriate to protect ERL's legal rights or during emergencies if physical safety is believed to be at risk. These disclosures are possible although unlikely.

Personal data about ERL members and customers may, from time to time, be collected or shared with outside contractors, auditors, consultants, and others hired by ERL to assist in carrying out financial or operational activities. ERL informs recipients about safeguarding personal information, and requires them to use it only for an authorized purpose consistent with this privacy policy, and to return it or destroy it upon completion of the activity.
