What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

InfraGard Alaska Members Alliance Acceptable Use Policy

InfraGard Alaska Members Alliance (IAMA) offers you an opportunity to network with and learn from other cyber and physical security professionals. If you participate in any way with the chapter, you are agreeing to comply with these terms, which we may update with advance notice (or without notice at our discretion).

The organization exists to share and learn from other members and, as a result, InfraGard is not to be used as an opportunity to market products and services. During the InfraGard meetings, there are opportunities for members to share cyber issues they may be experiencing. Do not use these discussions as the basis for marketing opportunities in order to solve people’s issues.

You are responsible for any content that you post or transmit on or through the InfraGard site or social media. You will not use these communication tools to distribute, link to, or solicit content that:

  • is unlawful, harmful to minors, threatening, harassing, abusive, defamatory, vulgar, gratuitously violent, obscene, pornographic, libelous, invasive of another’s privacy, or racially, ethnically or otherwise offensive

  • includes personally identifiable information about children

  • infringes someone else’s intellectual property or other rights

  • advocates or solicits violence or other criminal conduct

  • violates any law, regulation, or contract

  • promotes participation in multi-level or pyramid marketing initiatives

  • constitutes a raffle, sweepstakes, lottery, or any other form of gambling

  • specifically advertises firearms or ammunition, tobacco, alcohol, pornography, or any other product or service that is illegal in Alaska, or the domicile of either the distributor or recipient

  • constitutes unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, junk or bulk e-mail, chain letters, or any other unsolicited commercial communication, except as InfraGard National Members Alliance (INMA) specifically authorizes

  • contains software viruses or any other computer code, files, or programs that are designed or intended to disrupt, damage, or limit the functioning of any software, hardware, or telecommunications equipment

  • contains pirated or illegal software or crack serial numbers that are designed to circumvent proper software licensing and registration

You will comply with all applicable laws and regulations regarding on-line conduct and content. You will not use the service to collect, store, or use information about others for the purpose of sending unsolicited or unauthorized communications.
