Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information

We aim to provide you with easy access to your personal data. If you need to review, change, or update your personal information, you can do so by logging into your My CCA account. Alternatively, you can contact us. Due to production, mailing, and system timelines, it may take a few days to process a request to update your preferences and personal data.

How We Keep Your Information Secure

We use commercially reasonable efforts to make our collection of data consistent with all applicable laws and regulations. We exercise care in providing secure transmission and storage of data. However, no data transmission or storage is 100% secure. We cannot warrant that all data we transmit, store and collect will be completely secure. We take commercially reasonable efforts to create and maintain firewalls, restricted access and other appropriate safeguards to ensure that, to the extent we control information, it is used only as authorized by us and consistently with this Policy.

  • All the information you provide us is stored in a secure computing environment protected by secure firewalls to prevent unauthorized access.
  • To register for events or personalize your experience, you must use a unique, confidential CCA user ID and password that you define.
  • When you use secure areas of the site, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol with 256-bit encryption. This means that all the information sent between your computer and our secure computer environment is encrypted or scrambled so that no one can read it in transit. You can read it and we can read it- no one else can. There are two cues to show you that you are using a secure area. First, the Web site address (or URL) appears as https:// (instead of just http://)-the "s" is for "secure." Second, a lock or key indicator appears in the status bar of your Web browser.

Credit Cards

We do accept credit card payments for registrations. Credit card numbers are not stored on our server. If someone uses your credit card to make an unauthorized purchase, check with the institution that issued your card to find out what the exact liability is.

Email

If you send us an email, we may save it if we think we'll need it to communicate with you. Remember, email is not a secure way to send personal information because it is not encrypted. Please don't send any personal information to us using email; use our secure forms instead.

Opt Out of Marketing

If you do not want to receive marketing emails from us, you can opt out by signing in to community.ccactuaries.org and clicking your profile in the upper right corner. Click on My Account and select Email Preferences to manage your marketing preferences or click the Manage Opt-out List link on the page to remove yourself completely from email. You can also contact us, and we can assist you.

Even if you opt out of marketing emails, we may still communicate with you for other purposes related to your membership and/or transactions initiated by you, such as new or existing orders and purchases; governance related information and changes; for customer service purposes; regarding your membership; and/or for other activities where the CCA has a legitimate business or legal purpose for contacting you.

Links Provided To Other Sites

CCA may provide links to a number of other web sites that we believe might offer you useful information and services. However, those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as CCA. Therefore, we are not responsible for the privacy policies or the actions of any third parties, including without limitation, any web site owners whose sites may be reached through this Site, nor can we control the activities of those web sites. We urge you to contact the relevant parties controlling these sites or accessing their on-line policies for the relevant information about their data collection practices before submitting any personal information or other sensitive data.

Data Subject Access Rights

Under the GDPR, residents of the European Union and European Economic Area (data subjects) have additional rights. These rights include accessing, updating, or requesting the deletion of personal data (unless we have to keep that personal data for legitimate business or legal purposes).

International Users

The CCA is headquartered in the United States, and our website(s) and applications are operated, in whole or in part, from the United States. The personal data we collect from you will be processed in the United States. The CCA relies on derogations (see Article 49 of the GDPR) for transferring and processing your personal data in the United States. The CCA transfers and processes your data based on your consent, to perform a contract with you, or to fulfill a compelling, legitimate interest of the CCA that does not outweigh your rights. We safeguard your privacy by ensuring that the CCA uses your data consistent with your relationship with the CCA and the privacy practices described in this Policy.

Our services are directed to the general public. We do not knowingly collect information from children under 13 years of age or have any reasonable grounds for believing children under the age of 13 are accessing our website or using our services. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.
