Some parts of the Women Leaders in Sports website may use a "cookie," which is a file placed on your computer hard drive, that allows the Women Leaders in Sports web server to log the pages you use in the Women Leaders in Sports site and to determine if you have visited the site before. The Women Leaders in Sports server uses this information to provide certain features during your visit to the website. You can set your browser to warn you when placement of a cookie is requested and decide whether or not to accept it.

Throughout the website there may be forms to request information, products, and services. These forms typically ask for contact information (such as your phone, address or email address), financial information (such as your credit card numbers), and demographic information (for example, company product categories, areas of interest, location, etc.).  Contact information from these forms is used to send the products, promotional materials or membership information that you request.

This site uses physical, electronic and managerial procedures to protect information collected online including firewalls to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.

Exhibitors, partnering organizations or sponsors may be provided with mailing addresses of conference registrants before and after Women Leaders in Sports National Convention.

Many exhibitors collect business cards or collect attendee information at their booths during the convention. If you supply this information to an exhibitor at a booth, Women Leaders in Sports views this as voluntarily providing information to the vendor. This is how many vendors build their marketing lists. If you receive materials following the Women Leaders in Sports National Convention via email or receive a phone call, please be assured this information did NOT come from Women Leaders in Sports , but possibly did come from the information you provided to an exhibitor during the convention.

Member Directory
Among the most valuable benefits of Women Leaders in Sports membership is the ability to connect with a colleague within athletics administration. For that reason, Women Leaders in Sports maintains profile information and has a searchable, online directory of members. This tool is accessible to current Women Leaders in Sports members only.
