There are a number of areas in the SoMA Web Site where we ask for and collect information about you, including personally identifiable information. Where we do, it is in order to serve you better, or is necessary to accomplish the service you are requesting. Examples include registration information (which may include name, address, email, telephone number and educational and professional experience information).
Information provided to this Site is processed and stored on computers in various countries, including Canada and the United States.
Membership/registration information is used both in the SoMA mailing lists (which also includes lists provided to technical and geographical units of SoMA (for example, societies and sections)) and in the SoMA Membership Directory.
From time to time, to better serve our community, the SoMA mailing list, in part or as a whole, may be released to other makeup art professional organizations and carefully selected third party organizations to provide you with information on industry products and services related to your profession, or that we otherwise believe is useful to our community. In addition, the mailing lists may be used in connection with informing you about SoMA services, products, conferences, meetings and events. You may instruct us to not share information about you in the SoMA mailing lists with third parties by indicating this preference on your registration application when you join SoMA, or by sending an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and including your name and SoMA student number for identification purposes. Your choice to opt-out of third party mailings is effective until you indicate otherwise.
Security identifiers are not disclosed to third parties or affiliated persons or entities.
There is a common registration process that allows you to receive your "SoMA Web Account." The registration involves the use of your student number, a registration PIN number, and your subsequent choice of a unique user name and password.
The user name and password will be used to authenticate you when you enter privileged services that are offered by the SoMA. After authentication, the service being requested will be allowed based on your current status in SoMA, Societies, or specific electronic services for which you have signed-up.
SoMA cooperates with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties, to enforce laws. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us, service or content providers we work with, or you to possible legal liability.
REGARDLESS OF THE PRECAUTIONS TAKEN BY YOU OR BY SoMA, "PERFECT SECURITY" DOES NOT EXIST ON THE INTERNET. SoMA CANNOT ENSURE OR WARRANT THE SECURITY OF ANY INFORMATION YOU TRANSMIT TO THIS SITE OR SoMA, AND YOU TRANSMIT SUCH INFORMATION AT YOUR OWN RISK.
