The New York State Tourism Industry Association (NYSTIA) has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: nystia.org.
Our site's Member Update form requires members to give us contact information, in the form of a User ID and password. The information which our members subsequently supply is used solely for the benefit of the members themselves, by furthering the promotion of their businesses on this website.
As an added service to its visitors, this site also contains links to other sites. NYSTIA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites. Links to any such sites are totally external to this site itself, and no information which is gathered by this site is supplied to any third parties under any circumstances.
We collect information from you when you fill out a form.
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information.

We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, properties or safety (for instance, we provide attendee contact information to sponsors of NYSTIA's Empire State Tourism Conference, in which some information is gathered from online registrations facilitated by this website).
However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome and feedback about these sites.
Because we value your privacy we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We therefore will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent (consent is implied for information shared to sponsors about Empire State Tourism Conference registrants).
