NAGAP respects the privacy of its members and other visitors to its website. NAGAP strongly believes that if electronic commerce and online activities are to flourish, consumers must be assured that information provided online is used responsibly and appropriately. To protect online privacy, NAGAP has implemented the following policy which is incorporated into and is a part of the Terms and Conditions of our Site.
What Information Does NAGAP Collect?
Most data NAGAP collects is used only to help us better serve our members. It is our general policy to collect and store only personal information that our members and visitors knowingly provide. If our privacy policies change, we will notify all users by email or a special announcement placed on the website.
We will collect personally identifiable information that you provide to us, including, but not limited to, your name, employer's name, address(es), telephone and fax number, e-mail address, and credit card information. NAGAP may use and store some or all of such information in order to notify you of official NAGAP business; provide a product or service you requested; secure your membership status; complete your online renewal; analyze, evaluate, and improve member and prospective member needs and interests; alert you of NAGAP news, activities, courses and programs, services and benefits; and for other legitimate and lawful business purposes. Personally identifiable information may be given to a third party in order to complete a specific business transaction on behalf of NAGAP. Contact information from inquiries received by NAGAP may be shared with NAGAP members to provide a service, satisfy a question, or develop a prospective business relationship.
We may disclose personally identifiable information to the proper authorities if we become subject to a subpoena or court order, or if we are otherwise legally required to disclose such information. We also may use and disclose information about you to establish or exercise our legal rights, to enforce the Terms and Conditions of Use, to assert and defend against legal claims, or if we believe such disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding actual or suspected illegal or fraudulent activities or potential threats to the physical safety or well-being of any person. If all or part of NAGAP is merged or otherwise transferred to another entity, we may transfer the personally identifiable information you provided to us to such entity as part of that transaction.
From General Users.
NAGAP does not collect any personal information from users browsing its website. Only aggregate data—such as the number of hits per page—are collected. Aggregate data are only used for internal and marketing purposes and do not provide any personally identifying information.
From NAGAP’s Members, Conference and Educational Forum Registrants, and Other Consumers.
To gain access to online registration for meetings and other educational events, paying annual dues online, and other miscellaneous activity, users may be asked to register and provide some limited information. This information is submitted voluntarily. NAGAP asks users to provide their name, company name, business phone and email address. For emails sent in HTML format by NAGAP through electronic newsletters and other communications, we will collect specific information regarding what the recipient does with that email. For those emails, NAGAP will monitor whether a recipient subsequently clicks through to links provided in the message. NAGAP only uses this information to enhance its services and distribution of those services and benefits to its certificate holders and other stakeholders. This information is not sold or distributed in any other manner.
How Does NAGAP Use Data Collected?
NAGAP uses information voluntarily submitted by members and other consumers in the following ways:
