What we collect
Our main website traffic is collected on an overview scale; specific user information is not collected. The discussions posted/actions taken within the eConnect community are linked to the individual logged in and therefore this information is tracked according to the username. Emails sent from FRPA are tracked by email address to the extent of whether the email was delivered, opened, and clicked on. When users use the online store to purchase memberships, meeting or conference registrations, merchandise, etc., this information is stored on the internal database system under the user's account. Additional information on a user's account includes but is not limited to:
- Employing organization
- Associated addresses
- Continuing Education Credits
- Committees/Boards served on
- Any other pertinent information needed to serve the member
Credit card information is not stored on any user's account.
Emails from FRPA
FRPA utilizes your email address to inform you about upcoming events, news, ballots, surveys, and other information related to the park and recreation field. Your information is not sold to commercial enterprises. The system in place for commercial vendors to reach the membership is through the FRPA AdMail, which is controlled and sent from and frpa.org email address. Sponsors of FRPA events are given access to email addresses of attendees on a one time basis.

FRPA houses its own servers, which store any data you have submitted to FRPA via email or file transfer. Additionally, FRPA's database, which houses your user accounts, stores the data on your account on a cloud-based server. There are two additional resources that pull your username and membership status: the website host, Higher Logic, and the Impact Calculator site, Wordpress.
