9) Cookies & iMis

ARM uses a customer-relationship management (CRM) platform known as iMis to interact with both ARM members and nonmembers. ARM uses this platform to send communications, track membership information, promote member engagement, organize and provide registration for events, and other activities. The iMis RiSE portal, located at, does not track user activity or data, such as browsers, Windows versions, or previous websites viewed. iMIS only tracks what the user does on the iMIS website, such as cookies in the cart and in the Show a cookie warning message. When an item is added to the cart, even anonymously, iMIS adds a cookie to keep track of the cart that was created. When a user signs in, the previously created cart is merged to the now-logged-in user’s account. Additionally, when a user accepts the cookie warning (when the cookie warning is turned on), iMIS stores a cookie to remember that the user has accepted. ARM does not have access to these cookies or the information gathered using these cookies. You may disable the use of cookies by iMis RiSE sites via your browser, but please note that the iMis RiSE may no longer work properly.
