Teamsters Local Union No. 117 (Local 117) is committed to protecting your privacy. This page explains how Local 117 gathers and handles information from visitors to the Web site and reflects our dedication to securing the information you entrust with us.
The only personal information Local 117 collects is what you voluntarily provide through online forms, purchases or e-mails. This information may include your name, e-mail address, street address, phone number, membership status and local union affiliation. We do not store sensitive personal information.
The information you provide is used only to communicate with you (if you grant permission to do so) more effectively. Other information you submit through online forms is kept confidential. It will not be sold or shared with unaffiliated third parties, such as mass marketers.
Teamsters117.org provides personal information on a secure and confidential basis to other Teamsters-related organizations as well as third parties that have contracted with Local 117 to offer services that it cannot offer on its own, to facilitate our services, or to provide services on our behalf.
These third-party providers are required to protect the privacy of Local 117 members and site visitors. They must safeguard your information and can use it only to provide the services to Local 117 that you’ve authorized.
We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. If we receive a subpoena requesting information about you and if you have provided us with your email address, we will attempt to notify you of the subpoena at the email address that you have provided. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with the law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Website or using the Teamsters name, to prevent bodily harm, to enforce our User Agreement, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our site, our members, the public or Teamsters. In the unlikely event that Teamsters (or substantially all of its assets) is merged with another entity, information on our visitors would be among the transferred assets.
In accordance with the Children’s Online Protection Privacy Act (COPPA), teamsters117.org does not knowingly collect, use or distribute personal information on children to any third party.
Agreements with third-party vendors require they use secure servers and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect the transmission and processing of payments and financial information. These agreements state that the vendors may store your information in order to make future purchases easier. Review the privacy policies of each Teamster partner for more details. Teamsters 117 also has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information collected from visitors to the web site.
Teamsters117.org also collects non-identifying information to help monitor and analyze usage patterns and web traffic, including the name of your Internet service provider, the browser you are using, the web site that referred you, the pages you visited while on the site and the date and time of your visits. We use this information on an aggregate basis to generate statistics that help us improve the usefulness of the site.
