Collection of your Personal Information
NAMSA collects personally identifiable information that you voluntarily provide, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. NAMSA also collects anonymous demographic information voluntarily provided by you but which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
NAMSA also automatically collects information about your computer hardware and software. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by NAMSA for the operation of the Service, to maintain quality of the Service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Websites. This information is de-identified and does not contain any personal information.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through NAMSA public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others who are not associated with NAMSA.
Use of your Personal Information
NAMSA collects and uses your personal information to operate the NAMSA Websites and deliver the Services you have requested. NAMSA also uses your personal information to inform you of other products or services available from NAMSA and its affiliates. NAMSA may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered. NAMSA does not read or view any of your private online communications.
NAMSA does not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to third parties. NAMSA may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.
NAMSA may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to NAMSA, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
NAMSA does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
NAMSA keeps track of the Websites and pages our customers visit within NAMSA in order to determine what NAMSA services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within NAMSA to customers whose behavior indicates they are interested in a particular subject area.
NAMSA Websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on NAMSA or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of NAMSA; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of NAMSA, or the public.
NAMSA’s Websites and some of the Services use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters that are placed by a Web page server on the hard disk on your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize NAMSA pages, or register with NAMSA site or services, a cookie helps NAMSA to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same NAMSA Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the NAMSA features that you customized.
Security of your Personal Information
NAMSA secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, implementing appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, including inter alia as appropriate. NAMSA secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
You can always opt not to disclose information to NAMSA. However, some information may be needed to register with NAMSA or for NAMSA to provide its Services.
At any time, you can withdraw your consent and opt-out of receiving promotional or marketing communications from NAMSA by using the unsubscribe link in the emails communications or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any account for our Services, NAMSA will still send you non-promotional communications, like service related emails.
Exercising Your Data Subject Rights
You have the right to access, review, update, rectify, and delete any Personal Information that NAMSA holds about you, or exercise any other data subject rights available to you under applicable data protection laws. In order to exercise your data subject rights, you can send an email to email@example.com. NAMSA’s Privacy Team will review any request and respond within a reasonable time.
NAMSA will retain any Personal Information to the extent necessary to comply with NAMSA’s legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce NAMSA’s agreements.
