Privacy Policy

The Montana Society of Certified Public Accountants (MSCPA) has created a privacy policy to demonstrate our commitment to keeping your online transactions safe and personal and financial information private. These guidelines have been developed with the understanding that they may change as our online business model continues to evolve. Changes to the guidelines will be posted on this page.

Collection and Use of Information

Members have the opportunity to submit information via the MSCPA web page (www.mscpa.org) while joining, paying membership dues, registering for CPE offerings, participating in the “Find a CPA” network, and otherwise interacting with the MSCPA web page. Information collected from these features may include name, employer, addresses, phone and fax numbers, certification and license information, social security number, email address, and credit card information. This information is collected solely to identify the individual, maintain accurate member records, or enroll the individual in programs.

Choices for Sharing of Information

The MSCPA sends mailings to its members regarding MSCPA business and MSCPA-sponsored CPE and other activities. At the time of joining or renewing membership with the MSCPA, members are can opt out of receiving various MSCPA mailings in the appropriate section of the membership form. Members can also opt out of receiving these mailings at any time by contacting the MSCPA (see below).

A “Membership Directory” is available in a password-protected member area of the MSCPA web page. This directory lists contact information for all members and is provided for the convenience of members. The extraction of large amounts of information from the MSCPA database, sometimes referred to as “data mining,” is expressly prohibited. No one, member or non-member, may gain access to the MSCPA “Membership Directory” on the MSCPA web site in order to “mine” member data for any purpose, including commercial, political, or other solicitation purposes.

The MSCPA avoids collecting and maintaining information that is considered sensitive. Occasionally such information is used to facilitate attendance at CPE offerings or other MSCPA meetings (e.g., meals, nametags, special accommodations). Members have the choice not to provide sensitive information such as gender, marital status, ethnicity, religion, or medical information.

Use of Cookies

The MSCPA may use aggregate web site log information to measure popularity, traffic, and effectiveness of various areas of this web site. The log of information may be collected through a cookie, but it is not personally identifying in these circumstances.

The MSCPA operates networks that are password protected and not available to the public. In addition, we contract the web hosting out to a third party. The third party uses firewalls and Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) for data encryption and web server authentication and protection.

Managing Your Information

We recognize that our members have many changes in their circumstances that require a change in information. Members can change their personal information in the password protected area called “Update My Profile” under “Members” on the navigation bar. Members must contact MSCPA directly to change their employer information.
