Privacy Policy

General information

Detailed membership information is shared only with current members in good standing. SSWA is not a buying group and therefore puts no requirements on negotiations between manufacturer and wholesaler members. Members are encouraged to keep in touch with each other and the association on a regular basis, and to attend the annual SSWA Executive Conference to strengthen partnership bonds and improve wholesaler-manufacturer relationships.

Right to access, correct and delete data and to object to data processing

Our members have the right to access, correct and delete personal data relating to them, and to object to the processing of such data, by addressing a written request, at any time. The Association makes every effort to put in place suitable precautions to safeguard the security and privacy of personal data, and to prevent it from being altered, corrupted, destroyed or accessed by unauthorized third parties. However, the Association does not control each and every risk related to the use of the Internet, and therefore warns the Site users of the potential risks involved in the functioning and use of the Internet. The Site may include links to other web sites or other internet sources. As the Association cannot control these web sites and external sources, the Association cannot be held responsible for the provision or display of these web sites and external sources, and may not be held liable for the content, advertising, products, services or any other material available on or from these web sites or external sources.

How We Use Your Information

SSWA uses the data we collect for three basic purposes: to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer, to send communications, including promotional communications, and to display advertising. However, to enhance privacy, we share this information only with existing members.

Sharing Your Information

We share your corporate or personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete any transaction or provide any service you have requested or authorized. When you provide payment data to make a purchase, we will share payment data with banks and other entities that process payment transactions or provide other financial services, and for fraud prevention and credit risk reduction. In addition, we share personal data among our controlled affiliates.
