What categories of personal information do we collect?

We collect information from you when you sign up for membership or register for events through our website. When registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, work and educational background, State Bar number and committee interests. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.

How do we use your personal information?

Any of the information provided by you on this website may be used in one or more of the following ways:

  • To process membership and event registrations.
  • To provide you with information that you request from us.
  • For internal recordkeeping.
  • To send you periodic emails. 
  • To improve our website (we continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you).

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information.

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. We use cookies to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personally identifiable information to outside parties. Trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website or conducting our business may have access to the information, provided these parties agree to keep this information confidential. Please note that we may provide names, contact information and membership status of our members to our national affiliate, the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association, and to the State Bar of California. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety. Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Third party links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include links to third party websites on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

What Choices and Rights Do I Have As A California Resident?

If you are a California resident, you have the right to request that we disclose to you the categories of personal information we collected about you, the categories of sources for the personal information collected about you, our purpose for collecting that information, categories of third parties with whom we share any personal information, the specific pieces of personal information collected about you, and if we have disclosed your personal information for any purpose.

You also have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, following verification of your identity and request, subject to certain exceptions.

To exercise these rights, please submit a verifiable request to contactapaba@gmail.com. The request must be described with sufficient detail and must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify your identity or that you are an authorized representative.
