Our Commitment to Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining out online information practices. This statement applies solely to information collected at the Illinois CPA Society®'s (ICPAS) website. 

We want to give our website visitors the opportunity to know what information we collect about them and how they can limit the use of personally-identifiable information beyond the purposes for which they first provided it. 

At all times, however, ICPAS reserves the right to disclose information where required by law or to comply with valid legal process (such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order), to protect ICPAS’s rights or property, including without limitation in the event of a transfer of control of ICPAS or substantially all of its assets, or during emergencies when safety is at risk.

You should check this Privacy Policy regularly to determine if there have been any changes.
