Third Party Providers

MAAM uses third party providers for credit card payments (membership fees, donations,  and event registrations).

The MAAM membership database and website is powered by Wild Apricot.  To ensure security and privacy of your data, Wild Apricot provides traffic encryption (https) capability. Traffic encryption ensures that data entered into the online forms (e.g. membership application, event registration) as well as data transferred from Wild Apricot servers back to visitors is protected from snooping, for example if you access internet over an insecure WiFi connection. Member data is only used in the membership system and for no other purpose. Wild Apricot does not store any sensitive credit card data. Payments are all handled by a third party.  Click here to learn more about Wild Apricot’s Privacy Policy.

MAAM uses Google Forms, Sched, and Jotform for award nominations, session proposals, and event registrations. The web forms may ask for contact information for the purposes of communication with you, regarding your form submission.
