Information We Collect

 

To receive certain benefits of using the Sites, you may be required to provide your personally identifiable information, including name, email address, physical address, phone number, job titles, credit card information, and other employment and background information (“Personal Information”).    If you do not agree with the collection of this Personal Information, you should not use the Sites.  The following describes the types of personal and other information we may collect about you, and how we use and maintain that information:

Site Use Information

Our web servers may collect the IP address of visitors to our Sites. This information may be aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the Sites, pages viewed, etc. Such information is not considered Personal Information under this Privacy Policy.  We may use this information to measure the use of our Sites and to improve the content we offer. We may share with third parties this experiential information or other data on an aggregated basis without the use of any information that personally identifies you.

Use of Cookies

Like most sites, we employ “cookies” or similar technologies on certain pages of our Sites. Cookies make the use of the Sites easier by, among other things, saving your preferences. We may also use cookies to deliver content tailored to your interests. Our cookies may enable us to relate your use of our Sites to Personal Information that you previously submitted. The information that we collect with cookies allows us to statistically analyze usage of our Sites, and to improve and customize our content and other offerings. However, we only disclose information collected with cookies to third parties on an aggregated basis without the use of Personal Information.  Cookies are not considered Personal Information under this Privacy Policy. We may share statistical or demographic information in aggregate form with third parties for marketing or research purposes.

The types of cookies we use on our Sites may include:

  • Session cookies: These temporary cookies expire and are automatically erased whenever you close your browser window. We use session cookies to grant our users access to content.
  • Persistent cookies: These usually have an expiration date in the distant future and remain in your browser until they expire or you manually delete them. We use persistent cookies to better understand usage patterns so we can improve the Sites for our users. For example, we may use a persistent cookie to associate you with your user account or to remember your choices on the Sites.

We do not use technology that recognizes a “do-not-track” signal from your web browser.  We do not track users other than for aggregate statistical purposes.

Your use of our Sites will be deemed to be your consent to the placement of cookies on your computer or other devices. If you prefer not to receive cookies through our Sites, you can set your browser to either reject all cookies, to allow only “trusted” websites to set them, or to accept only those cookies from those sites you are currently on. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system may issue cookies when you log on to our Sites and use them. If your browser is set to reject cookies, or if your browser notifies you that you are about to receive a cookie and you reject it, then your use of the Sites may not be as efficient or as enjoyable as it would be if the cookie were enabled, and some parts of the Sites may not work at all.

You can help to maintain the security of your online transactions by not sharing your account information and password with anyone.   NASP cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or from our Sites, and therefore you use our Sites at your own risk.
