Confidentiality of Transmissions

Please remember that transmissions on the Internet are not always confidential. You are transmitting this information at your own risk.

You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Site, in which case IACCS may not be able to provide certain services to you.


We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. Our credit card processing vendors have their own security policies relating to the data they process. Please read those privacy policies carefully. Information you elect to post to our Site, e-mails and other information you send to us, except that which you send us on a secure page, is not encrypted and such, transmissions cannot be considered a secure means of transmitting sensitive information.
