Privacy: The American Shore & Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) believes that privacy is important to the success and use of the Internet. This privacy policy describes the practices that ASBPA will follow with respect to the privacy of the information of users of this site. Should you have any questions about this policy or our practices, please send an email to or write to us at:

Accuracy: This site and its components are offered for informational purposes only; this site is not responsible or liable for the accuracy, usefulness or availability of any information transmitted or made available via the site, and is not responsible or liable for any error or omissions in that information.

Intellectual property: The website and its original content, original graphics, features, and functionality are owned by ASBPA and are protected by international copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, and other intellectual property or proprietary rights laws.

Advertisements and promotional links: Any links or promotional materials included on this website are either a benefit of ASBPA membership or sponsorship, or provided to partners without any financial remuneration to ASBPA. Any mention of venues, hotels or other conference-related operations are provided for informational purposes only, either because ASBPA has contracted with them to provide special rates to registrants of ASBPA conferences or as options for conference hotels or venues if no such special-rate contract with ASBPA exists. Any special terms to receive such discounted rates will be spelled out in detail on the conference registration website, which is operated independent of ASBPA.

Links: This website does contain a number of links to other websites and online resources that are not owned or controlled by ASBPA. ASBPA has no control over, and therefore cannot assume responsibility for, the content or general practices of any of these third party sites and/or services. Therefore, we strongly advise you to read the entire terms and conditions and privacy policy of any site that you visit as a result of following a link that is posted on our site.

Payment: All payments are due upon receipt. If a payment is not received or payment method is declined, the buyer forfeits the ownership of any items purchased.

Refund policy: All ASBPA memberships are non-refundable. Conference registrations will be refunded if requested by the date set forth on the conference registration site; a $50 processing fee will be charged, and refunds will be made via the same payment method for the original registration. Due to the limited number of conference sponsorship opportunities available, they are non-refundable unless the purchased item is resold, and a $50 processing fee will be incurred for all cancellations. All sponsorships are final within 30 days of the event.  All sponsorships with promotional items and General and/or Bronze sponsorships are also non-refundable.

Cancellation: An item may be cancelled up until payment has been processed. Once payment has been processed, the buyer is responsible for payment.

Access: We may terminate your access to any restricted areas of this website (if they exist), without cause or notice, for failure to maintain a current membership in ASBPA. All provisions of this Agreement that, by their nature, should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, and limitations of liability."

Revisions: ASBPA reserves the right to change these conditions from time to time as necessary, and your continued use of the site will signify your acceptance of any adjustment to these terms. If there are any changes to our privacy policy, we will announce that these changes have been made on our home page and on other key pages on our site. Any changes to our privacy policy (which includes how we use our site customers' Personally Identifiable Information) will be posted on our site 30 days prior to these changes taking place. You are therefore advised to re-read this statement on a regular basis.
