The data APIW collects is used to help better serve our members.  It is our policy to collect and store only personally identifiable information that our members and applicants knowingly and voluntarily provide.

To gain access to members-only resources and features on our Site, members, applicants and other users may be asked to provide personally identifiable information.  This information is submitted knowingly and voluntarily by the user.  APIW uses this information to enhance its products and services and distribution of those products and services to its members.  This information is also used to support the online directory for networking and to pre-populate registration forms.  APIW may also use this information for internal, marketing and strategic planning purposes.

Credit information that you and credit authorizers provide for your application for membership and/or other services will be processed through PayPal.  PayPal is a service that securely facilitates online payments.  This Site will direct you to a PayPal page where you can use a credit card or PayPal account to submit payments.  APIW disclaims any responsibility arising out of the use of PayPal.
