Privacy Policy

Membership Information:

APSWDP is a membership organization; as a result, we collect member information on our members, including email address, username and certain member preferences. At this time, we do not expressly request a user's proper name, address and other demographic information. However, as we move more member services to the web, we will, by necessity, request and process that information online as a benefit to our members. Your email address will be used to send you information relating directly to your APSWDP membership, such as; membership renewal notices and to recover lost password. Your email address may be used to send you periodic information from association, but only upon your express consent/preferences (Monthly bulletin, information about upcoming event etc.)


In addition to required member information, we may conduct surveys and ask users to volunteer demographic information to be used on an aggregate basis for internal member research. We use such information to focus better and personalize our service offered to each individual user.


A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies.

By setting a cookie on our site, users would not have to log in a password more than once per session, thereby saving time while on our site. If users reject the cookie, they may still use our site. However, they will be limited in the use of certain areas of the website, like areas that require user logon.


We also collect aggregate traffic statistics throughout our site to show the number of visitors to our site, the requests we receive from our website, and the ISPs that those requests came from. These statistics are used by internal NASW staff to improve our website and provide better services to members.


All the new applications received by APSWDP will be processed by the team of experts. Acknowledgement after the receipt of online applications (E-Mails etc.) will be done. After scrutinizing the application on eligibility criteria and/or as per the norms of APSWDP, shortlisted candidates will be intimated through E-Mails only. Applicants are requested to check their spam folder in case acknowledgement is not received in inbox of mail within one week from the date of sending application.

Note: In no case, APSWDP will be responsible for non-receipt of acknowledgement of receipt.
