The Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology (“AUPO”) has created this privacy policy in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for and all other AUPO-affiliated websites (collectively, “website”).

General Principles

  • We only use information collected on the website for AUPO purposes.

AUPO Annual Meeting Registration

The website incorporates forms for members and other customers to request information, products, and services and to register on-line for the annual meeting. We collect visitors’ contact information (such as email addresses), financial information (such as accounts or credit card numbers), and demographic information (such as zip code, state). Unique identifiers are collected to verify the user's identity. Contact information from order forms or surveys is used to analyze website use.

The website contains links to other sites. In the event you choose to access such third-party websites, the AUPO and the website are not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties. We recommend that you check the applicable privacy policy of third parties before providing personally identifiable information to it, as its privacy policy may differ from our website’s policies.

AUPO Email Privacy Policy

The AUPO endeavors to protect your email address from inappropriate use. If the AUPO determines the use of your email address is of benefit to its members, the AUPO may, with the approval of its Executive Vice President, send a message to the membership on behalf of third party requestors. Members may opt-out of receiving future AUPO emails by emailing that request to and including Opt-Out on the subject line.

Policies Governing the Use of AUPO Email Addresses

The AUPO will not provide direct access to member email addresses. AUPO will, upon approval by the Executive Vice President, send email correspondence directly to its members.
