Site visitors’ personal information which is voluntarily provided to the CAOMS is provided only to CAOMS staff that requires the information to process payments, register new members, or respond to inquiries. We do not use this information for any other purpose. We protect all personal information in our custody with strong security safeguards, including strict access controls.

We may use Internet address information to personally identify you when necessary to enforce rights, or when required to do so by law.
