AGMA collects three types of information from its Web site:

  • Your IP (Internet Protocol) address.
  • Information voluntarily submitted for access to the Members Only section of our website on publication order forms, meeting registration forms or e-mails sent to the website administrator.
  • Cookies, if the user so chooses.

Your IP address is only a temporary name by which a computer obtains access to the AGMA Web site. AGMA uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site’s quality. We do not use IP addresses to personally identify users. We use a log file of IP addresses to determine which areas of our site visitors like, based on the volume of traffic, and to better prepare future site content based on the number of hits on particular pages of the site. We do not track the usage patterns of individual users, but rather how well each page on our site performs overall.

Information voluntarily disclosed to AGMA either online or in writing through publication order forms, meeting registration forms, survey response forms, and relevant e-mails is added to the appropriate AGMA database to enable the processing of the order or registration or for the appropriate response. This information is usually the name, address and item purchased, meeting attended or topic of interest. AGMA may distribute additional relevant information, based on interest, to individuals identified by information voluntarily submitted to AGMA.

You may opt out of receiving additional communications from AGMA by e-mailing to have your name removed from our lists. Corrections or other changes may also be made by e-mailing
