When you register to attend one of our events, such as our annual national conference, details we collect from you when you may include (but are not limited to) your name, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, academic/industry affiliation, EMS certification level, campus EMS alumnus status, demographic details, and payment details. If you are already a member (or have previously been a member) and register for an event, we will use the membership details we already have on file for you to confirm your booking. You may update those details at any time.
To complete your event registration, we may share a subset of your personal information with a payment processor and the facility hosting the event. We need to use your personal information in this way to complete the booking process.
Contact information for campus EMS organizations represented at an event may be provided to event exhibitors and speakers upon their request. We do this because our exhibitors and speakers have a legitimate interest in building relationships with the campus EMS community.
Using our SMS-based attendance tracking system at an NCEMSF event may involve a third-party message processor. Limited information (e.g., your mobile phone number and the attendance information you provide) will be provided to that third-party. In handling these requests, we may also reveal your name and the speaker / topic of the session you are attending to the third party.
When you email us, phone us, or contact us via social media
When you contact us, we may also handle your personal information (your name, contact details and the other details you provide to us) in order to provide the customer services you have requested (e.g., questions you may have with regard to membership, payments, and other service-related inquiries). We rely on your consent to handle your personal information in this way. If you do not provide us with the personal information we request from you for customer services purposes, we may not be able to fully answer your queries.
When you have expressed interest in the Foundation
This section applies if you have opted in to receive communications from us, or have previously expressed an interest in the Foundation and not opted out.
After you sign up for one of our events, create a free Web account, or become a member of NCEMSF, we will provide you with email updates. Every email we send to you for this purpose will also contain instructions on how to unsubscribe from receiving them. You can tell us that you do not want a specific campaign of emails by following the included unsubscribe link.

If our organization or its assets are sold
We will transfer your personal information to a third party:
- If we sell or buy any business or assets, we will provide your personal information to the seller or buyer (but only to the extent we need to, and always in accordance with data protection legislation); or
- If the Foundation or the majority of its assets are acquired by somebody else, in which case the personal information held by the Foundation will be transferred to the buyer.
We process your personal information for this purpose because we have a legitimate interest to maintain business continuity and to ensure our business can be continued by the buyer. If you object to our use of your personal information in this way, the relevant buyer of our business may not be able to provide services to you.
In some circumstances, we may also need to share your personal information if we are under a duty to disclose or share it to comply with a legal obligation.
