Other information is asked about applicants' horological hobbies and sponsors. This information is used by the Membership department for billing and mailings.

Legal Disclaimer

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order, or legal process served on our website.

Choice/Opt out

Our Membership Application provides applicants the opportunity to opt-out of having their contact information given to NAWCC Chapters, other horologically related mailing lists, or made accessible online to other members through the member directory. It also allows users the option to opt-out of electronic communications from the Association. All organization email contacts offer recipients the ability to opt-out of future email communications.

On extremely rare occasions we may request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary. Typically, contact information (name and shipping address), and demographic information (e.g., zip code) are asked. Contact information will be shared with the survey sponsors. Users’ personal identity information is not shared with third parties unless we give prior notice and choice. The intermediary that we use to conduct these surveys does not use users’ personal identity information for any secondary purposes.


This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. Any sensitive information submitted via the website is protected both online and off-line.

On registration/order forms sensitive information (e.g., credit card number and/or social security number) is encrypted and protected with the best encryption software in the industry -- SSL. While on a secure page, the lock icon or secure icon on the browser address bar becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when users are on a non-secure page. To learn more about SSL:

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g., a billing clerk or a membership service representative) are granted access to personal identity information.
