How Do We Use Your Information?

The Michigan Nurses Association (MNA) is a labor union that advocates on behalf of Registered Nurses and other healthcare professionals in the state of Michigan. We use your information exclusively for these ends, unless otherwise required by law or regulation.

We may use your information:

To What Extent Do We Share Information with Third Parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personal information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law or regulations, to enforce our site policies, to protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.

What Are Our Storage and Security Practices?

All our data is stored on secure servers and accessed through an encrypted virtual private network. We have implemented appropriate and reasonable technical, administrative, and physical security controls designed to protect the security and privacy of any personal information we process.

All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Transport Layer Security (TLS/SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.
