Our Privacy Policy

What information do we collect?
We collect information from you when you register on our site, place an order, fill out a form, or through other direct contact with you.

When ordering, registering on our site, or updating your personal profile or firm listing, you may be asked to send us personal information such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number or credit card information. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.

  • To better serve you through by allowing us to personalize our member records and target our mailing lists.
  • Where applicable, Selected may use information provided to report continuing education information as required by licensing authorities. This use may result in sharing of information provided to Selected through this site with licensing authorities. By utilizing this site, you authorize Selected to make any necessary disclosures to such licensing authorities.
  • Selected will use the email address you provide with your order to provide confirmations, respond to requests for information, customer satisfaction surveys, and otherwise communicate with you regarding your order. We may also use it to inform you about other Selected products, programs, events, and information. You may “opt out” of such communications by contacting Selected Headquarters with your request.
  • We may send information about Selected programs, surveys, products and other information to your mailing address if you provide one, even if the primary reason you provided your address was not primarily for this purpose. You may "opt out" of such communications by contacting Selected Headquarters with your request.
  • We may use information you submit to send you targeted marketing about Selected programs, surveys, products and other information that may be of specific interest to you and your firm. Again, you may "opt out" of communications by contacted Selected Headquarters with your request.

How do we protect your information?
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Do we use cookies?
Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the sites or service providers systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.

This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you. We require such third parties to agree to keep your personal information confidential. We may release personal information to our "Preferred Partners" so that they can contact you with information about their offerings. We may also release your information when appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect the rights, property, or safety of Selected and/or others.

Non-personally identifiable aggregated demographic information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
