DELIVERY OF OUR SERVICES
HRMAM provides visitors to our Site with access to event registrations and membership applications.
Our events are open to members and non-members of HRMAM and are subject to the applicable fees. Fees are due and payable before the event.
We do our best to deliver the events described. We make every effort to avoid canceling an event. Cancelling is only done after all other options have been exhausted, and registered guests will receive a full refund of any fees collected.
HRMAM members may also use this Site to post and participate in blogs, forums, and topical/networking groups offered through this Site.
All services now or hereafter offered by HRMAM through this Site are collectively called "Services”.
If you are unable to attend an event for which you have registered, you may designate an alternate at no additional charge. Please do so as soon as possible before the event by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are unable to attend the event and are unable to find an alternate, you may cancel your registration up to one week before the event, with full refund. Within 7 days prior to the event, any cancellations will not be eligible for a refund. Registered guests who cancel within 7 days prior to the event or who do not cancel and do not attend the event are required to pay the full fee.
Collection. HRMAM collects personal information on our Site as is necessary for processing event registrations and membership applications, and for otherwise providing the Services. We will not disclose or share personally identifiable information collected on our Site except to third parties who require such information to assist us in our general administration and/or business operations, to other HRMAM members to facilitate networking and communications between or among members, as consented to by that individual, or as permitted or required by law.
Aggregate Data. We may share reports with third parties based on aggregated data of our members and guests ("Aggregated Data"). Aggregated Data does not include any personally identifiable information about members or guests. For example, these reports will not include your personal or organization name. Information is aggregated for the purposes of determining successful event benchmarks and other similar activities.
Event Registration. When you register for an event on our Site, you have granted us permission to release the information you entered as an attendee to the event organizer.

If you are registering for a paid event as a member or guest, we will request payment information to conclude the transaction as well as your mailing address or other contact information to ensure authentication and proper delivery. We use industry-standard secure socket layer (SSL) encryption. We do not sell or rent your personal financial information.
