If you pay for services directly from ALTA, such as through the “Electronic Invoice Payment” or “AMO Registration Services”, we will use the personal information you provide only to process that payment. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to ALTA, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive. ALTA does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party.
We may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We encourage our customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary.
Certain information, as provided by members, will be made available to the general public and to members. Some information about members may be provided to vendors or advertisers. Special Cases: It is ALTA’s policy not to use or share the personal information about Visitors of Members in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses. However, ALTA may disclose personal information about Visitors or Members, or information regarding your use of the Services or Web sites accessible through our Services, for any reason if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including: to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, regulations, or governmental or legal requests for such information; to disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Acceptable Use Policy or other user policies; to operate the Services properly; or to protect ALTA and our Members.
Advertisers and web hosting customers may also use their own cookies. We do not control use of these cookies and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them.
Please remember that any information you may disclose in the ALTA forums, or other public areas of our Web sites or the Internet, becomes public information. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in these public areas.
Services and Web sites we maintain have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally obtaining this information.
ALTA offers Members the opportunity to access or modify information provided. To access or modify such information, visit the ALTA website or otherwise contact ALTA.
Cancellation or request for refund of a payment via cash, check, electronically processed credit card or check, is subject to a $15.00 dollar processing charge. If the fees are for services or an event which are already rendered or the request for a refund is made less than 7 days prior to the date of the event, the invoice still stands and may be paid using other means, but no refund will be made. Otherwise the service may be canceled and fully refunded – less the $15.00 fee.
ALTA’s Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) is intended to help enhance the use of the Internet by preventing unacceptable use. All users of ALTA’s Internet services (the “Services”)-those who access some of our Services but do not have accounts (“Visitors”), as well as those who pay a monthly service fee to subscribe to the Services (“Members”)-must comply with this AUP. We support the free flow of information and ideas over the Internet and do not actively monitor use of the Services under normal circumstances. Similarly, we do not exercise editorial control over the content of any Web site, electronic mail transmission, news group, or other material created or accessible over or through the Services, except for certain proprietary websites. However, in accordance with our Internet Service Agreement, we may remove any materials that, in our sole discretion, may be illegal, may subject us to liability, or which may violate this AUP. ALTA may cooperate with legal authorities and/or third parties in the investigation of any suspected or alleged crime or civil wrong. Your violation of this AUP may result in the suspension or termination of either your access to the Services and/or your ALTA account or other actions as detailed below. This AUP should be read in conjunction with our Internet Service Agreement and other policies.

The following policies of the Alaska Land Title Association (the Association) will govern all publications of the Association and the Association web site.
The purpose of these policies is to regulate the circumstances under which the Association will accept advertising for inclusion in its publications and on its website, consistent with the Mission Statement and goals of the Association. The Association reserves the right to regulate the form, manner, content, substance, composition, size and length of any advertising and to cancel or refuse to run any advertising in accordance with the procedures set forth herein. The web site and publications of the Association represent the membership of the Association as a whole and, therefore, the Board of the Association (the Board) has an interest in maintaining the complete integrity of each publication and of the website, consistent with the high ethical and professional standards of the land title industry in Alaska. The Board may delegate its discretionary authority in regard to acceptable advertising to any committee of the Association.
The Association reserves the right to reject any advertising that, to the “reasonable reader,” is false, misleading, defamatory, obscene, or which does not conform to contemporary community standards of good taste or decency, or which violates the laws of the state of Alaska or any other applicable laws. The Association may require any advertiser to provide factual substantiation or legal authorization from the appropriate jurisdiction when requested for any advertising. No advertising will be accepted that violates or may enable another to violate the Association’s Code of Ethics.
The Association will not knowingly accept advertising for tobacco and alcohol products of any sort, advertising for illegal products or services, advertising for products or services whose movement in interstate commerce is illegal, or advertising relating to lotteries or games of chance. Additionally, the Association will not accept advertising that in any way may jeopardize the mailing status of the publication in which it appears, and reserves the right to apply to the U.S. Postal Service for a ruling on any such matter.
The Association will not accept electioneering advertising by or on behalf of candidates for public office, candidates for elected positions within the Association, or advertising advocating positions on political or social issues.
The Association does not endorse any product or service advertised in its publications or on its website. Advertising which, by its subject matter or content, may imply or lead to an implication of Association endorsement, recommendation, support or approval will be accepted only if, as a condition of acceptance, it includes in the advertisement a disclaimer which states that the product or service is not endorsed, recommended, supported or approved by the Association. Nothing herein shall prohibit a member of the Association from including in any advertisement that fact that such organization or individual is member of the Association, however. In the event a member whose advertising includes such a reference ceases to be a member in good standing at any time during the term of advertising contract, the Association may terminate such advertisement without any obligation to refund any part of the contract price.
If an advertisement offers the sale of a product by mail or by the Internet, the Association reserves the right to examine the product a purchaser will receive, but the Association is not obligated to do so. Examination of the product or publication of the advertisement does not constitute a guaranty or warranty of the product, and does not imply the Association’s endorsement, recommendation, support or approval of the product.
No advertisement for escrow services, title insurance, real estate records search or examination services, notary services or abstracting will be accepted from any individual, firm or entity that is not a member in good standing of the Association at the time such advertising contract is entered into. “Member in good standing” shall be defined in accordance with the Bylaws of the Association as they may be amended from time to time. In the event such an advertisement is accepted from a member of the association and such member ceases to be a member in good standing at any time during the term of advertising contract, the Association may terminate such advertisement without any obligation to refund any part of the contract price.
The Association reserves the right to request part or full payment before publishing any advertisement. The Board shall set and vary the advertising rates as it sees fit; however, no change in advertising rates during the course of any contract shall require any increased payment, nor shall it result in any refund of any part of the existing contract rate.
All advertising submitted for inclusion in any publication or on the website of the Association shall be reviewed by the Board, or by a committee as may be designated by the Board, to determine its conformity with these policies. Any discretionary or subjective determination which must be made in regard to advertising shall be made in the sole and absolute discretion of the Board or empowered committee; provided, however, no such decision shall be based on the race, creed, color, national origin, gender, age or the identity of the principals of the entity or of the individual seeking to advertise in the Association’s publications or on its website. The Board or empowered Committee shall make a final determination of whether to accept the advertising.
