Privacy Policy

Privacy Statement
The American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) respects the privacy of its members and website visitors. The ASPEN website collects data only to better serve members and other users of our website.

Individual information, including contact information and demographics, is gathered from members, bookstore customers, education and research users, conference registrants and others. To gain access to members-only areas and personalized features on the website, users must join ASPEN and provide individual information. Information submitted online may be used for other ASPEN marketing uses, such as email and mail notifications of upcoming events that match the interests you provide us. Data are submitted voluntarily.

ASPEN will not sell or rent information gathered from website access to anyone except when:

  • We have your consent to share the information;
  • We need to share your information to provide the product or service you requested; or
  • We need to send the information to companies working on behalf of ASPEN to provide a product or service.
  • On occasion, ASPEN may also provide limited data to third parties that offer related products and services. These limited data include names, job titles, companies and business addresses, but do not include business phone numbers or business fax. Users may request ASPEN to refrain from disclosing the data it collects to third parties by contacting ASPEN at [email protected] or (301) 587-6315 to express their preferences if they determine later that they do not wish to have the information shared. 

Companies that receive personal information from ASPEN in order to execute the businesses of ASPEN may use personal information only for that purpose.

ASPEN does not disclose credit card account information provided by its members and customers. When members and customers choose to pay using their credit cards, ASPEN submits only the information needed to obtain payment to the appropriate clearinghouse. Credit card information is not saved nor maintained in any ASPEN database and therefore cannot be used for any additional purpose other than the original purchase.

The ASPEN website uses cookies to track site login information, order information and other personalization. In order to use the restricted/member’s-only areas of or personalized features on the ASPEN website, your browser must be set to accept cookies. 

Please note that the ASPEN site contains links to other sites. ASPEN is not responsible for the privacy practices, privacy statements, or content regarding these other sites. For further information please email ASPEN with any comments, questions or concerns about the A.S.P.E.N. privacy policy or its implementation.
