Privacy Policy

Effective April 2021‎

The International Door Association (IDA) is committed to keeping your email address confidential. We ‎do not sell, rent or lease to third parties the emails of members, meeting attendees, magazine ‎subscriibers or anyone else with whom we conduct business.‎

In an effort to maintain efficient service while respecting the privacy of those who visit the IDA ‎website (Site) and correspond electronically with IDA, IDA has created and posted the following ‎privacy policy. This privacy policy is incorporated into and is a part of the Terms and Conditions of Use ‎of our Site.‎

Information Collection and Use

We will collect personally identifiable information that you provide to us, including, but not limited to, ‎your name, employer’s name, address(es), telephone and fax number, email address, and credit card ‎information. IDA may use and store such information in order to notify you of official IDA business; ‎provide a product or service you requested; secure your membership status; complete your online ‎donation; analyze, evaluate, and improve member and prospective member needs and interests; alert ‎you of IDA news, activities, courses and programs, services and benefits; and for other legitimate and ‎lawful business purposes. Personally identifiable information may be given to a third party in order to ‎complete a specific business transaction on behalf of IDA. Contact information from inquiries received ‎by IDA may be shared with IDA members to provide a service, satisfy a question, or develop a ‎prospective business relationship.‎

We may disclose personally identifiable information to the proper authorities if we become subject to ‎a subpoena or court order, or if we are otherwise legally required to disclose such information. We ‎also may use and disclose information about you to establish or exercise our legal rights, to enforce ‎the Terms and Conditions of Use, to assert and defend against legal claims, or if we believe such ‎disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding actual or suspected ‎illegal or fraudulent activities or potential threats to the physical safety or well-being of any person. If ‎all or part of IDA is merged or otherwise transferred to another entity, we may transfer the personally ‎identifiable information you provided to us to such entity as part of that transaction.‎

Registration and Order Forms

In order to enroll or register in a program; attend IDA events, meetings or conferences; or request ‎products or services; you may be required to fill out a registration or order form and provide personally ‎identifiable information which we will use to process your registration or order. In certain ‎circumstances, a program accessed through the Site may be jointly sponsored or co-sponsored with ‎other organizations and registration may or may not be handled by IDA. In such event, this privacy ‎policy will not apply – instead, such third-party’s privacy policy will be controlling. Please note that IDA ‎is not responsible for the privacy policies of these other organizations (or their use of your personally ‎identifiable or other information) and hereby disclaims any liability or responsibility in connection ‎therewith. In addition, your name and information may appear on registration or attendee lists ‎distributed at IDA events, meetings and conferences to other attendees and third parties. Please note ‎that IDA provides event sponsors and exhibitors with attendee names and postal addresses, not email ‎addresses. Attendees are granted access to a list of the names and institutions (including countries) of ‎other registered attendees.‎

Cookies and Log Files

Cookies are pieces of stored information used to provide smoother navigation throughout the Site, ‎such as a saved password; to identify user trends, such as page views; and for other internal purposes, ‎such as assessing the effectiveness of the Site. You have the option of setting your computer to ‎disable cookies or to alert you when cookies are being used. If you choose to disable cookies, please ‎be aware that portions of the Site may not function properly.‎


There are links to other websites throughout the Site. Please note that IDA is not responsible for the ‎privacy policies of those other sites and hereby disclaims any liability or responsibility in connection ‎with such linked sites.‎


Online registration and information such as credit card numbers will be secured using a commercially ‎accepted method of encryption. However, while we employ reasonable security measures to protect ‎your personal information, please be aware that no method of electronic transmission is completely ‎infallible, and we cannot guarantee its absolute safety. If you become aware of any breach of Site ‎security, please contact us immediately.‎
