Access to the APHSA-ISM Website
APHSA-ISM is committed to providing access and availability of this Internet site. We have implemented safeguards to notify us in the event of loss of Internet connectivity. Even with these safeguards, however, this site may become unavailable due to maintenance or malfunction of computer equipment or other reasons. Thus, APHSA-ISM cannot "guarantee" its connectivity, nor can we be responsible for lost or delayed requests, email, or content. In addition, APHSA-ISM may alter, suspend, or discontinue this site at any time for any reason, without notice or cost.
Internet Security Policy
Internet security is very important to APHSA-ISM, and we are committed to ensuring a safe and usable site. For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, this computer system employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
Unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, deny service, or otherwise cause damage on this service are strictly prohibited and may be punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986. Information regarding possible violations of law may be provided to law enforcement officials.
In order to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, we have prepared a short statement disclosing the privacy practices of this website. You should know upfront that APHSA-ISM does not automatically collect any personally identifying information about you as you visit our website. For site management purposes, however, we do collect aggregate information to assess what information is of most or least interest, determine technical design specifications, and identify system performance areas. This computer system uses software programs to create summary statistics in these areas. If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store the following information automatically:
The Internet domain (e.g., "aphsa-ism.com" or "xstate.state.us") and IP address (a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access our site;
The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
The date and time you accessed our site;
The pages you visited; and,
If you linked to the APHSA-ISM website from another site, the address of that website.
THIS INFORMATION DOES NOT IDENTIFY YOU PERSONALLY. We use this information to make our site more useful by learning the number of visitors to the pages on our site and the type of technology our visitors use.
If You Choose To Provide Personal Information
If you choose to provide personal information to us, by sending an email message or by filling out a form on our site, APHSA-ISM will use that information to respond to your request only. There are times when your email is forwarded to an APHSA-ISM employee or officer who is best able to assist you. APHSA-ISM may also forward requests for assistance to another appropriate entity for response. APHSA-ISM will not share your email with unrelated third parties without obtaining your permission, except to comply with authorized law enforcement activities.

The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by APHSA-ISM of the site, nor the site's policies, practices, or products. In addition, APHSA-ISM shall have no responsibility for any information contained in a linked site, nor for any damages or losses caused by a linked site.
