Information Collected by DIA
The information that DIA receives, and how we use it, depends on what you do when visiting our website. DIA collects and uses your non-personal information (information that is not identifiable to you personally) differently than your personal information.
DIA website automatically collects certain non-personal information from its visitors, such as the name of the Internet service provider and the Internet Protocol (IP) address through which you access the Internet; the date and time you access the website; the pages that you access while at the website; and the Internet address of any third-party website from which you linked directly to our website. This information is used to help improve the DIA website, analyze trends and administer the website. All guests to the website can use the open portions anonymously. We may track the number of users who visit areas of the website for internal use, but this tracking will not identify users.
For personal information, the DIA website will prompt you to voluntarily provide such information if and when it is needed by DIA to provide a service or conduct a transaction that you have requested, such as registering as a member to gain access to members-only areas of the website or the personalized features of the website, ordering publications or registering for courses and webinars and downloading the DIA products, accessing My Transcript to request credit for participation in an educational program, downloading a statement of credit, submitting information, joining the discussion boards and online forums, making contributions to DIA and communicating with DIA through email. The types of personal information that you may be asked to provide to DIA includes your name, mailing address, title, company or organization, telephone number, fax number, email address and credit card information.
In support of the uses described above, DIA may use personal information for the following purposes:
- to respond to your requests;
- to contact you with information about upcoming events, programs, products and services of DIA and to provide updates and other notifications;
- for analytical purposes and to research, develop and improve DIA’s programs, products;
and services and content, including the DIA website; and
- to enforce this Privacy Statement and the other rules regarding use of this website.
DIA may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with legal process, protect the rights of DIA and its website or, in certain circumstances, to protect the health, safety or welfare of DIA or its employees, users of DIA’s products and services or members of the public.
Security of Personal Information
The members-only portions of the website can only be accessed by entering your DIA member number and password. Strict security standards and procedures, including a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol and 128-bit encryption are used to help prevent unauthorized access to customer data, including credit card data. All DIA staff and support personnel must adhere to our privacy standards. [All personal information that you provide to DIA are stored on computer servers with limited access to help protect such information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.]
Disclosures to Third Parties
DIA will not sell, rent, exchange, publish or otherwise share your personal information to any third parties except as otherwise described in this Privacy Statement. In the ordinary course of business, DIA may engage third parties to provide limited services on our behalf, such as website hosting, packaging, mailing and customer service functions. DIA will only provide those companies the personal information necessary to perform the service, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Member names and business contact information are made available to other members via the DIA Membership ConneX. However, members can request that their information be blocked from this directory in their member profile.

Please note that some non-marketing communications, such as product download and sales transactions, are not subject to general opt-out.

After registration, members can change how they wish to receive their membership benefits, and other customers can change how they wish to receive communications from DIA, through the Manage My Subscriptions feature of their customer profile.
