We collect different types of information about our members and Website visitors, including:
We may collect the information described above directly from you, from third parties we partner with, or through cookies or other automated means. Such sources include:
We may use your information for the following business purposes:
Our Website may store some information on your device or device hard drive as a cookie, web beacon, pixel, clear gif, tag or other similar technology to collect data related to the use of our Website and for the purpose of facilitating and enhancing your communication and interaction with our Website. Cookies are small text files with information stored on your computer or other device used for visits to our Website. Cookies are used to make websites work more efficiently, for example, by simplifying login processes, but also for providing information to a website owner about how their website is used.
We (and many of our external third parties) are based in the United States (US) so the processing of your personal information may involve a transfer of data outside of your country and economic region if you are effecting transactions outside of the US.
Whenever we transfer your personal information, we ensure it is protected by making sure the following safeguards are in place:
You can contact the Director of Marketing by mail at 1711 Arlingate Ln, Columbus, OH 43228, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone at 1-800-222-2768 (US toll free), Ext. 211 or +1 614 384 2461 (US direct) for the details as to how we protect the transfer of your data.
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers or those of our third-party data storage providers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. You must not share your password with anyone.
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal information (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research, product development or improvement, or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
The United States does not recognize a uniform data protection law. If you wish to access your information, learn how your information is stored, correct inaccuracies, limit marketing use, and/or completely erase your information from ASNT’s systems (to the extent permitted by law), you can contact our PR Manager, by mail at 1711 Arlingate Ln, Columbus, OH 43228, by email at email@example.com, or telephone at 1-800-222-2768 (US Toll Free), Ext. 244 or +1 614 384 2444 (US Direct).
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), European Union consumers have the following rights:
You are entitled to receive confirmation as to whether your personal information is being processed by us, as well as various other information relating to our use of your personal information. You also have the right to access your personal information which we are handling.
You have the right to require that we rectify any inaccurate personal information we hold about you. You also have the right to have incomplete personal information we hold about you completed, by providing a supplementary statement to us.

Where you exercise your right to restrict us from using your personal information, we will then only process your personal information when you agree, except for storage purposes and to handle legal claims.
You have the right to receive your personal information in a structured, standard readable format and to send it to another organization controlling your personal information.
This right only applies to your personal information we are handling because you consented to us using it or because there is a contract in place between us.
You have the right to require us to erase your personal information which we are handling in the following circumstances:
You have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority within the EU for data protection issues in your territory. As we conduct business globally, we have not set out the specific supervisory authorities for each country in this policy, but please contact us if you would like us to identify who the relevant supervisory authority is in your country or territory.
If the basis on which we rely for processing your personal information is your consent to the processing, you also have the right to withdraw your consent for future processing of that personal information. You can exercise any of your GDPR rights by contacting us using the information in How Do I Contact You With Feedback?, below. Please be aware that we may need to use your personal information if it is relevant to a legal claim that is being pursued.
