Privacy Policy

    Welcome to NESHRM Online, owned and produced by the Northeast Society for Human Resource Management. NESHRM is the leading membership association for the human resource profession serving Northern Maine. Our websites are available to all visitors, although some content and features are restricted to NESHRM members.

    Throughout NESHRM Online, there are forms for visitors to request information and services. These forms may ask for contact information (such as your phone number or e-mail address), unique identifiers (usually your NESHRM/SHRM membership number, if one is available), financial information (such as your credit card number), or demographic information (for example, your age, location, PHR/SPHR designation, etc.). Contact information from these forms is used to provide the products, promotional materials, or memberships that you request. Forms on our site that request financial information do so in order to bill you for products or services ordered. Unique identifiers (specifically, your NESHRM/SHRM member number) are collected from website visitors to verify the user's identity for access to restricted content or features on the site.
