Third party vendors, suppliers, and providers
From time to time HRPA may share your personal information with third party vendors, suppliers, and providers responsible for administering marketing and promotional activities on our behalf. Such third parties are required to have privacy policies or to abide by HRPA's policies as relevant to the personal information shared with them. Individuals who wish to withdraw consent for HRPA to disclose information provided in regards to marketing and promotional activities may do so by choosing to opt out of professional development mailings and announcements and/or member benefit mailings by providing notice in writing to the Privacy Officer.
