All personal data that you provide to us must be true, complete and accurate.

You do not need to provide us with any personal data to access many of our resources and services, however some services — such as receiving marketing communications, registering for events, requesting access to certain content and accessing members-only information and resources – requires the collection of personal information.

When you contact us by email or post, we may keep a record of the correspondence.

If a user wishes to subscribe to IFMA’s email communications a user is asked for contact and delivery information such as name and email address.


All members will receive essential membership communications, including notices about your membership and renewals, account activation notices, and essential information on IFMA activities, programs and services.

If you opt in to receive marketing communications from us you consent to the processing of your data to send you such communications, which may include newsletters and news alerts, surveys and promotions about programs, services and events. We retain a record of your consent.

You can choose to no longer receive marketing communications by contacting us at or clicking unsubscribe from a marketing email. If you do unsubscribe to marketing communications, it may take up to 5 business days for your new preferences to take effect. We shall therefore retain your personal data in our records for marketing purposes until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive marketing emails from us.
