User ID and Password
Aspects of the Site require the use of a user ID and password. The user ID and password enables GMAA to verify your identity and thereby allows you access to member information such as your GMAA account, Meeting registration details, etc.
When you have finished using a secure area of the site, make sure you always click on the “Log Out” link which appears on every secure page. When you click on the “Log Out” link, you will be given the option to end your secure session. No further secure transactions can be conducted without re-entering your user ID and password. You should be aware, browser software often “caches” a page as you look at it, meaning some pages are saved in your computer’s temporary memory. Therefore, you may find when clicking on your “Back” button it shows you a saved version of a previously viewed page. Caching in no way affects the security of your confidential user ID or password.
No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. Accordingly, and despite our efforts, the GMAA cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or to or from our online products or services.
