Use of your Personal Information and Image

ATLA collects and uses your personal information to operate the ATLA website and deliver the services you have requested. ATLA also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from ATLA, its Affiliates and selected Partners. “Affiliates” —means a corporation, partnership, Limited Liability Company or other entity that has some common ownership with ATLA.

ATLA or its Affiliates and Partners may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external or internal business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party without your permission. In addition, ATLA may share data with Affiliates and trusted partners to help ATLA perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to ATLA, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
You acknowledge and agree that your certification status is not confidential information and that ATLA may disclose your current certification status, including expiration dates, to third parties.

ATLA does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

ATLA keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within ATLA, in order to determine what ATLA services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within ATLA to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

ATLA will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on ATLA or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ATLA; and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of ATLA products or property, or to protect the public.

You grant ATLA non-revocable permission to capture my image and likeness in photographs, videotapes, motion pictures, recordings, or any other media (collectively “Images”). You acknowledge that ATLA will own such Images and further grant ATLA permission to copyright, display, publish, distribute, use, modify, print and reprint such Images in any manner whatsoever related to ATLA business, including without limitation, publications, advertisements, brochures, web site images, or other electronic displays and transmissions thereof. You further waive any right to inspect or approve the use of the Image by ATLA prior to its use. You forever release and hold ATLA harmless from any and all liability arising out of the use of the Images in any manner or media whatsoever, and waive any and all claims and causes of action relating to use of the Images, including without limitation, claims for invasion of privacy rights or publicity. 

Use of Cookies

The ATLA website uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize ATLA pages, or register with an ATLA site or services, a cookie helps ATLA to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses and so on. When you return to the same ATLA website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the ATLA features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the ATLA services or websites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

ATLA secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. ATLA secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

ATLA will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. ATLA encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed as to how ATLA is protecting your information.
