ARRT Website Privacy Policy

Last Updated: May 18, 2010

This Privacy Policy applies to the site www.arrt.org. This Privacy Policy describes the information the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists® ("we," "our" or "ARRT") collects on this site and how we use it, the choices that candidates and registrants can make about personal information, and how we protect the personal information that candidates and registrants provide to ARRT.

Information We Collect and How We Use It

We collect the following personal information that you submit to ARRT at the My ARRT Info section on this site: email address, credit card information, and postal address.

We do not share or distribute the credit card information, and it is removed from our systems after the transaction is settled.

We may use the collected personal information (except for email address, which is described separately below) for the following purposes:

  1. Contacting you by postal mail with the ARRT Annual Reports to Registered Technologists; renewal and other information related to registration, continuing education, examination, and other normal ARRT business.
  2. If approved by you, providing your postal information to continuing education providers, employment recruiters, or professional societies.
  3. Providing registration information to employers, state governments, and other organizations seeking registration verification.
  4. Providing postal information to approved academic researchers.

If a visitor merely browses through this site or downloads files, we collect certain information by automatic operation of this site's web servers. This information includes: (a) the name of the domain and host from which they access the Internet; (b) the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer they are using; (c) their browser software and operating system; (d) the date and time they access this site; and (e) the Internet address of the website from which they linked directly to this site. We may use this information, which does not identify the visitor, to enhance the site experience for other visitors, candidates, and registrants.

Disclosure of Information

ARRT may disclose the personal information of candidates and registrants submitted to ARRT: (a) in accordance with this Privacy Policy; (b) in accordance with the ARRT Rules and Regulations, Standards of Ethics, and Continuing Education Requirements for Renewal of Registration; (c) to comply with law, regulation, or other legal processes or to protect the rights, property, or safety of ARRT or others; (d) in emergency situations; or (e) in the event that ARRT or substantially all of our assets are acquired by one or more third parties as a result of an acquisition, merger, sale, reorganization, consolidation, or liquidation, in which case personal information (including email addresses) may be one of the transferred assets.

If we have the permission of candidates and registrants to do so: (a) we may from time to time make their name and postal address available to employers for recruitment purposes or to others (such as organizations related to R.T.s and continuing education sponsors) who may wish to contact them; and (b) we will also include name, city, state and registration/continuing education information of technologists in the "verify credentials" of this site.

Sanctioned individuals are included without choice in the online ARRT Directory.
