No MSIA services are directed to children under 13. Federal law requires that MSIA may not collect any personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years of age.

To most effectively offer our services, MSIA may collect information from you in the following ways:


Registration Information You Provide. If you wish to register an account with the MSIA website, MSIA requests you to provide your identifying information (name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number, email address, and a user name and password you designate). You are not required to provide this information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features.


Online Store Transactions. If you wish to purchase anything from the online store, MSIA requires that you provide, in addition to your identifying information, payment information, including financial account information.

Server Log Information. MSIA’s servers automatically log certain basic technical information when a user accesses the website, which may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser’s request to the MSIA server, the date and time of the request, the language and type of browser being used, the referring web page, your computer’s operating system, and any MSIA cookies associated with your browser.


Communications from you to MSIA. If you send correspondence or email to MSIA or otherwise communicate with us, we may retain copies of the communications to assist you or for our records.


Cookies. When you browse to, our system sends a small file called a “cookie” to your computer that identifies your browser. This allows MSIA to recognize you for purposes of saving your preferences or providing personalized service. We use cookies to record session information, such as items that consumers add to their shopping cart, record user-specific information on what pages users access or visit, customize Web page content based on visitors’ browser type or other information that the visitor sends. Since we use cookies to make your web site visit more user friendly, be aware that refusing cookies may not allow you to take full advantage of some our web site features.


Your Preferences. To make your experience easier and more enjoyable, MSIA keeps track of your account preferences.


The only purposes for which MSIA processes personal information are those stated in this Privacy Policy, including the above, and the following purposes:

  • To assist the technical support of our system
  • To maintain and improve the quality of our services through auditing, research and analysis
  • To develop new services or enhance existing services, such as the online store and a user’s online shopping experience.
  • To communicate with you or respond to a request. If you supply us with your postal address or e-mail address via our web site you may receive periodic mailings from us with information of interest about MSIA, such as upcoming events or a new book. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please let us know by sending us e-mail to Please provide us with your exact name and address when you make the request so we can be sure your name is removed from our mailing list
  • To better understand, market to and serve our membership.
  • To protect the rights of property or safety of MSIA or its members


  1. Information You Reveal to the MSIA Community is Public

MSIA cannot protect the privacy of any information you communicate to other MSIA users or information or comments that you post on an MSIA website or forum.


III. Where Information is Processed

MSIA processes personal information on its servers located in the United States of America.


  1. Sharing of Information

MSIA will only share your personal information with third parties, if at all, in these limited circumstances:

  • You give consent.
  • The information is shared on a need-to-know basis with a person or company engaged to perform, or contribute to, MSIA’s services, provided such person or company complies with this Privacy Policy and other appropriate confidentiality measures.


MSIA believes in good faith that use or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:

  1. detect or prevent fraud or security issues;
  2. comply with any law, regulation, legal process or government order;
  3. protect the rights of property or safety of MSIA or its members; or
  4. to enforce MSIA’s website policies or investigate potential violations thereof.


  1. Use of Non-Personal Information

MSIA may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated demographic data that will not identify you or any member personally, such as the number of users who viewed a particular page in a given time-period, or geographic statistics about our members.


  1. Information Security

Any of your personal information that is stored is kept securely on MSIA’s servers. We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our site, which encrypts information you input, except for domain name data.


VII. Leaving

By clicking on any outbound links or advertisements on, you are leaving the MSIA website, and any transfers of information between your computer and the non-MSIA website or service you navigate to are not subject to this Privacy Policy.


If you use an outside service to make a payment, such as PayPal, the financial information you provide to that service is governed by that service’s Privacy Policy, not MSIA’s.


VIII. Mergers or Acquisitions

If MSIA becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or other sale of its assets, we will ensure the confidentiality of any personal information involved in the transactions and notify you before the information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.


  1. Accessing or Updating Your Information

If you have registered with MSIA, you may login to your MSIA account to manage or correct your information.


You may not register with MSIA if you are under 13 years of age. Federal law prohibits the collection of personal information from persons under 13 years of age.
