NACDS is committed to protecting the privacy of our Users. Since our website will collect certain types of information from users of this site on NACDS’s behalf, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding how that information is used.

This privacy policy discloses the privacy practices governing the use of information submitted to NACDS through this website (“Site”). Capitalized terms shall have the meaning designated in this privacy policy. Please be aware that our site contains links to other sites and that the privacy practices of these other sites may differ from those of NACDS. Each site is responsible for its own privacy practices.

Any person accessing, browsing, or otherwise using this Site, either manually or via an automated device or program, to the extent permitted hereunder, shall be considered a “User” under this privacy policy. All Users are bound by the terms of this privacy policy. A User that becomes a registered member of the Site shall be deemed a “Member.”

INFORMATION USAGE

NACDS collects personally identifiable information such as names and email addresses from Users. NACDS may also collect IP addresses and pages visited from Users who view our Site. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and administer the Site. Your IP address may also be used to gather broad demographic information.

Additionally, if you decide to become a Member, you will be asked to register and provide certain information including, for example, a valid e-mail address, company name, work telephone number, and other contact information.

When you register, the Site uses a cookie to store a unique user ID. We use this user ID to identify you in our database, which enables you to enter, personalize, and use certain areas of the Site.

A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information, such as a user ID, which the site uses to match with the registration information you’ve already given to us. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.

NACDS values your patronage and respects your right to privacy. Because we are committed to protecting your privacy, personal data relating to an identified or identifiable individual which are submitted to this Site will be collected, processed, stored, and disposed of in accordance with applicable U.S. law. However, U.S. law may not provide the degree of protection to personal data that is available in other countries. The submission of personal data constitutes the User’s acknowledgment that he/she has read and understood this notice, and agrees to its terms.

You hereby authorize the information sharing described in this privacy policy. Except as disclosed in this privacy policy, NACDS will not otherwise provide personally identifiable information to third parties without your consent.
