ADSA Privacy Statement


The American Dairy Science Association (ADSA®) has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for ADSA.


ADSA sends emails of interest to members and meeting attendees. Email communications are sent to past members for up to 18 months following membership nonrenewal and to meeting attendees for the previous two meetings.

Information Collected

ADSA gathers three types of information about members, non-members, and visitors:

  • Data that are provided through updating member records.
  • Aggregated tracking data provided by server logs. Your IP address is used to gather broad demographic information, to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our website. Our server logs may also collect information about the URL that referred you to ADSA as well as which pages receive the most traffic. This information helps us offer personalized information to members, non-members, and visitors and to better tailor our future content to member, non-member, and visitor needs.
  • Registration forms and online purchases of ADSA products. Our site uses forms so that customers can register for ADSA meetings and purchase ADSA products. We collect site visitors' personal contact information (e.g., name and address) and financial information (i.e., credit card number). Contact information is used for administrative purposes. Non-members and visitors who register for an ADSA event may receive notification of other upcoming events or promotions that may be of interest. Financial information collected is used only to bill the member/visitor for products and services ordered.

Information Provided to Third Parties

ADSA may provide aggregated demographic and site usage information to third parties such as site sponsors. Upon consent, ADSA provides limited information from registration forms to Annual Meeting exhibitors at the conclusion of each event as follows: registrant name, company, city, state/province, and country. Under no circumstance, whatsoever, does ADSA make member or visitor email address available to any third party.

Links to Other Sites

This site contains links to other websites. Linked sites are not under the control of ADSA, and ADSA is not responsible for the contents of any linked site or any links contained in a linked site. ADSA is not responsible for the privacy practices of those sites or organizations. ADSA provides links only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by ADSA of the company, products, or services offered by that site or organization. If you feel that information found via a link from ADSA is offensive or counter-productive to ADSA's vision, mission or values, please contact ADSA Headquarters with your concern. Include the full link and the page on the ADSA site where the link is listed.
