This page contains information about our policies. If you have any questions, please contact the relevant person. There is more than one for this page, so each section contains the contact information.
The policies and documents covered here are:
The DAMA International by-laws govern the way that DAMA International, and the DAMA Chapters, are set up and operated. If you have any questions, please contact VP_Operations@dama.org.

The DAMA International Code of Ethics prescribes the behaviour expected from data professionals who are members of DAMA. If you have any questions, please contact Ethics_Officer@dama.org.
Click here to see the Code of Ethics, here a PDF file of the Code of Ethics, including the part that is to be signed by the individual (certificate), and here for just the certificate. All chapter and DAMA-I officers are required to read and sign the Code of Ethics annually and to return the signed certificate to the DAMA-I administration office.
The DAMA International Handbook describes the structure of DAMA International, including the various offices, and the standard operating practices and procedures for the offices. It may be used as the basis for an individual Chapter's handbook. If you have any questions, please contact VP_Operations@dama.org.

The DAMA International Privacy Statement explains what use we may make of your data, and the restrictions we impose on that use. If you have any questions, please contact Ethics_Officer@dama.org.
We are in the process of revising and confirming the Privacy Statement. The link will appear here once that has been done.
DAMA International is a vendor-neutral organisation. If we endorse something, it means that we consider it to be relevant to our members and the wider Data Management community. This means that we do not endorse any person, organisation, good or service as being better than another, or as being the best, and any such interpretation will be denied by us and could lead to the withdrawal of the endorsement.
If you have any questions, please contact Ethics_Officer@dama.org.
