Privacy Policy

The Information We Collect

We may collect and store any information you enter on our websites or give to us in any other way. The type and amount of information the New York State Movers and Warehouseman’s Association (“NYSMWA”) collects about you varies according to how you use NYSMWA Sites.

Collection of Personal Information

Many of the features on our websites are offered without collecting any Personal Information from you. “Personal Information” means personally identifiable information, such as your name, position, company, street address, telephone number, fax number, date of birth, e-mail address and other identifiers that permit physical or online identification of a specific individual. You can browse most of our websites and view much of our content on our websites anonymously.

When you make a purchase, or sign up for a paid service, we will also collect your credit card information as additional Personal Information. We will use credit card information only to complete the transactions you have requested.

Providing us with Personal Information is entirely optional and voluntary; however, if you do not provide the Personal Information requested, we may elect to not make the related service available for your use.

Collection of Non-Personal Information

We may also collect and store non-personally identifiable information about your visit whenever you interact with our websites. For example, we may automatically collect your domain name; IP address; means of entry to the site; the type of browser and operating system used to access the site; the date, time and duration of each visit; and the pages you visit.


If you have provided us with your e-mail address to subscribe to one of our services or to receive notifications or updates about one of the offerings at our sites and you wish to change your address or no longer wish to receive these communications, simply follow the unsubscribe instructions that appear in these e-mail communications.

Please note that any information that we have collected may remain in back-up storage, archival, and/or our log files, for some period of time after a deletion request. This may be the case even though no information about your account remains actively used as described in this Privacy Policy.


Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, for example, on message boards, through email, in chat areas, and other forums, that information can be collected and used by others. Please use your discretion and be careful when you provide any personal information in these publicly accessible areas. No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secured. As a result, while we try to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.


As part of our service, we may use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Generally, we use cookies to remind us who you are and enable us to access your account information so you do not have to re-enter it; gather statistical information about usage, research visiting patterns, and help target advertisements based on user interests; assist our retail partners track visits and process orders; and track progress and participation in promotions. Preferences and options configurations in your browser determine if and how a cookie will be accepted. You can change those configurations on your computer if you desire. By changing your preferences, you can accept all cookies, you can be notified when a cookie is set, or you can reject all cookies. If you do so and cookies are disabled, you may be required to re-enter your information more often and certain features of our site may be unavailable.

Who May Use Collected Information

Information collected, whether personal or non-personal, may be shared within NYSMWA and affiliated companies, and externally with third parties, such as members and business partners. NYSMWA also reserves the right to sell or license the use of information collected from our websites. However, it is our policy to not disclose externally with third parties personal information collected on our site, except in the following instances:

The Personal Information provided to us may be transferred, disclosed, sold, licensed or shared with third parties to fulfill a request for our products, programs, or services and to those who may be engaged by us specifically to handle and deliver certain activities (e.g., sweepstakes) and perform other technical and processing functions, such as sending e-mail, fulfilling orders, or otherwise operating our sites. They have access to Personal Information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Information provided to us through correspondence may be shared (as appropriate) with other interested parties, including our members. We may also disclose Personal Information to third parties (and our members) (1) when required by law or when the information is pertinent to judicial or government investigations or proceedings; (2) to protect and defend our rights and property; or (3) when necessary to protect our interests, our website(s), the safety of its users, or the public.

Other than as set forth above, we currently do not intend to share your Personal Information with third parties for other purposes. However, in the future we may disclose Personal Information you have provided to third parties for additional purposes. In the event we do, we will provide notices of such use to our users.

Collection of Information By Third Parties, Third Party Sites and Sponsors

NYSMWA sites sometimes may offer content, contests, sweepstakes, programs, registrations or promotions that are sponsored by or co-sponsored with third parties. By virtue of their sponsorship, these third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to participate in the contest, sweepstakes, registration, program or promotion. NYSMWA has no control over the third-party sponsors’ use of this information.

Children Under 13

We have no way of distinguishing the age of individuals who access our websites, and so we carry out the same Privacy Policy for individuals of all ages. If a child has provided us with personally-identifying information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian should contact us to remove the information and opt out of promotional opportunities.

Information Corrections or Changes

You have the ability to correct or change certain information in our records, such as your address and contact information. Generally, you may change this information at any time and as often as necessary. If you need assistance or have questions about correcting information, you can contact us via e-mail at

Notification of Changes

Periodically we may make changes to this policy. You are responsible for periodically checking our website for changes to this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the site after these changes are posted constitutes your agreement to the changes with regard to any information collected.
