The ASA Ombuds will practice to the usual standards for Organizational Ombuds. A guide for conference attendees explains:
The ProActive Ombuds will keep all information you provide confidential unless the ProActive Ombuds assesses and finds an imminent risk to safety. Over the days of the Conference, the ProActive Ombuds will identify any trends and patterns arising from consultations and inquiries received; following the Conference, ProActive will report to the ASA on those trends and patterns in a completely anonymized manner.(ASA Conference Conduct Policy; ASA Ombuds.)
