Visitors who use the MEA website to join or renew a membership, register for an event, make a donation, contact us, or schedule a Virtual Coffee appointment, may be asked to provide personally identifiable information.
This information includes, but is not limited to, things such as:
Members can update their profile information, privacy settings, and email preferences at any time by logging into their account profile or by contacting us.
We use a number of third-party services on our website. We have no control over the privacy practices of these services and only rely on them selectively.
For instance, we use:
The MEA uses the information you provide us and that we collect to communicate with you about your membership and MEA activities. We may also use it to analyze membership trends in order to provide more relevant services and programming, as well as to answer questions and provide support.
The Media Ecology Association limits who can access your personal information and does not sell it to third parties. In most cases, access to it is restricted to MEA board members, or a subset of MEA board members.
We may share it with other associations, academic institutions, and service providers as needed for the purpose of delivering event programming such as our annual convention or to fulfill member benefits such as when we share members’ names and mailing addresses with Intellect, the publisher of our journal Explorations in Media Ecology, and their affiliates.
Otherwise, we will only disclose your personal information if we have your consent to do so, or we are compelled to do so by law.
