Data Collection and Use Policy

Internal Data Collection and Use

Airway Management Education Center (AMEC) collects customer information:

  • during The Difficult Airway Course registration process
  • when a customer subscribes to Airway Manager™
  • when a customer purchases an e-learning course
  • when a customer purchases an Airway Card.

This data is used to:

  • organize and manage courses
  • activate adaptive learning subscriptions and e-learning courses
  • facilitate the shipping of airway cards
  • create reports that help us continuously improve our products and services.

 

In addition, AMEC uses customer email addresses to communicate with:

  • registrants about pre- and post-course requirements
  • all customers about AMEC offerings including free webinars, new products and upcoming courses.

On rare occasions, AMEC communicates about non-AMEC airway-related events that would be beneficial to our customers.  All recipients of AMEC emails may opt out of these communications by selecting SafeUnsubscribe™ at the bottom of each email.

 

No credit card information is processed or stored on AMEC’s websites or servers.  All credit card transactions take place on the sites of PCI-compliant, third-party e-commerce providers.  The two e-commerce providers we use are Authorize.net and Shopify. In addition, we accept payments using Quickbooks Online.
