Academy Graduates Association members are required to provide personal information upon joining the AGA. This information is published in the AGAís password-protected Members Only website and specifically in the AGA Contact Member Database and the AGA Members Register. By becoming a member of the Association, members permit the AGA to publish personal information on these web pages and to retain a hard copy version of the information for AGA files.

Access to Personal Information.
Members need to be cognisant that their personal contact details, listed in the AGA Contact Member Database and the AGA Members Register, can be viewed by all AGA members. When registering, members may choose not to provide some elements of personal information, such as home address and telephone number, if they so desire.
AGA members are required to provide an email address upon joining the Association. Email constitutes the principal means of information dissemination in the Association. As a member, you will periodically receive emails from the Association, including newsletters, announcements and notification of the requirement to renew your membership. Members may choose not to receive emails from the AGA, if they so desire, however this is not advisable given that email is the primary means of notification (send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be removed from the mailing list).
You will need to specify an online username and password when you become a member of the Association. This information is private and is not to be divulged to others. Improper use of your password will result in disciplinary action as specified in Section 13 of the AGA Constitution.
Should you lose it, you will need to specify a new one using our membership interface.

Credit Card Security
Credit card details provided to the AGA via this website are transmitted, stored and retrieved securely. Our shopping cart system uses a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection to ensure that your personal data is secure during transmission between your computer and our host server.
What is SSL? The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, originally developed by Netscape, has become the universal standard on the Web for authenticating Web sites to Web browser users, and for encrypting communications between browser users and Web servers. The prefix https://, instead of http://, in the browser address bar on the credit card payment page denotes that the information you are sending is being transmitted securely.
Once your credit card information has been submitted, the information is transmitted and stored on our host server. When it arrives, the information is encrypted using GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) software. The AGA General Manager is the only person who has access to the encryption key to access and decrypt the information files for processing.
The AGA General Manager periodically accesses the encrypted files on the server and prints the payment information. Your credit card is debited and the printed record of your credit card details is then destroyed. The AGA does not keep records of membersí credit card numbers.
