Privacy Statement

Thank you for visiting the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry's website. Your privacy is important to us. We will not collect personal information about you when you visit our website unless you choose to provide that information to us.

In order to send you information or respond to your questions, we will ask for contact information such as your name, e-mail, and/or address. We may use this information to send you information about programs, events or other opportunities that may be of interest to you. To opt out of receiving future e-mails/mailings or to submit changes, please e-mail the Association at

When you order material or make a donation through our website, we will ask for your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order.

The American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry will not disclose the information it collects to outside parties, except through the distribution of member mailing lists. From time to time, when we believe the material will benefit AAGP members, AAGP does provide mailing lists of members' addresses for limited use by outside parties. AAGP does not distribute email addresses or phone contacts to outside parties.

When you place orders or donate online, we use a secure server. Secure server software, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), encrypts information you input before it is sent to us.

When contacting the Association through e-mail, please note that e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. If your communication is very sensitive, or includes personal information, you might want to send it by postal mail instead.

Our website contains links to websites of federal agencies and other private organizations. Once you link to another site, that site's privacy policy outlines what it collects about you.
