    The American Chemical Society does not sell email lists of members or meeting registrants. Distribution or other use of the list without ACS’ express authorization is strictly prohibited. Third party “pirate” companies reach out to delegates and exhibitors offering to sell these lists often with the primary objective of obtaining credit card information. ACS is aware that these solicitations occur but has no affiliation with these companies. Please email the Meetings Team with any questions or concerns.

    B. Privacy Policy
    Your data privacy and security are important to us. When you register for this event, ACS will collect, process, and manage your data in accordance with our legitimate interests for hosting an industry event as described further in our privacy policy. Inquiries related to compliance with our privacy policy may be directed to privacy@acs.org or acsiprivacy@acs-i.org.

    C. Single Sign-On (SSO) Notice
    ACS uses a singular database as our system of record to interact with other systems, such as event registration systems, through Single Sign-On ("SSO"). In addition to the benefits for the end-user to have a single authentication process for our ACS platforms, it provides the organization a layer of security in the ability to protect data in our primary system. As data privacy and security become even more paramount, under GDPR, this allows us to monitor and maintain how any individual's data is stored, used, and updated from a singular view. Additionally, it protects the organization's data accuracy by eliminating duplication of records and incomplete or erroneous data. Inquiries related to compliance with our privacy policy may be directed to privacy@acs.org or acsiprivacy@acs-i.org.

    D. Payment Policy
    Full payment is due at the time of registration. The registration data is subject to audit. In case of error or incorrect self-selection of member types/pricing, the "Registration Center" reserves the right to correct the error and charge the appropriate fees. If there is a discrepancy, your registration and membership records will be updated accordingly. Should you owe any additional registration fees due to the audit, you will be notified via email, and within two (2) business days, the credit card that is on file will be charged the difference. Please note that your registration will not be complete until your payment is received, and you will not be able to receive your badge credentials and convention materials.

    • ACS reserves the right to cancel unpaid registrations (and any affiliated hotel reservations) within 30 days of registration or no later than 20 days prior to ACS Spring 2024, depending on the date of registration.
