Privacy Policy

AASLD is committed to protecting the privacy of those who use the AASLD website. To serve that goal, AASLD has adopted this privacy policy.

Information Collected

AASLD collects and utilizes different kinds of information from users of the AASLD website. Like most websites, AASLD uses "cookies" for several legitimate purposes. These include remembering user IDs and passwords and differentiating between repeat and new users. It is the policy of AASLD that data generated by cookies will be used for internal purposes only (e.g., to improve the site and site-related services for users). The data compiled via cookies is considered confidential and will not be sold to entities outside of the organization.

We may ask for your address, phone number and/or email address when you place an order for an AASLD product or service, when you complete a survey, register for a conference, apply for membership, or on other occasions. In each case, our objective is to have your contact information so that we can serve you better.

From time to time, we may use your address, phone number or email address to provide you with updates and other information that we think may be of interest to you.

We collect the email addresses of those who communicate with us via email and for those who register for certain sections of the site. We do not currently sell any email addresses to any third party. We may aggregate information on what pages users access. AASLD uses this information to enhance our online offerings, information and services.

We also collect information volunteered by users, such as survey information and/or site registrations. This information is kept confidential by AASLD and, again, is used for internal purposes.


AASLD undertakes reasonable efforts to ensure that all personally identifiable information collected on our site remains secure. AASLD staff is trained to treat member and customer information confidentially.
