We appreciate your interest in NADP. When you visit and navigate our site and when you communicate with us via our site, we do not collect personal information about you unless you provide us that information voluntarily. By "personal information," we mean data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, or telephone number. We strive to make users aware of the kinds of information we collect, why we collect that information, how we use it, and whether it will be shared with others.
From time to time, we may request personal information from you at our site in order to deliver requested materials to you, respond to your questions, or deliver a product or service. The concept of online privacy includes the right to decide what personal information you choose to submit online, and how that information will be used, if at all.
If you voluntarily provide personal information to us via our website, we will not sell, license or transmit that information outside of NADP unless required to do so by legal, judicial or governmental proceedings, or unless we do so in accordance with an express authorization you have given us. We may disclose information to our contractors or agents for the purpose of enabling them to perform certain functions for us. We will disclose information in compliance with applicable laws and regulations and will require the recipient to protect the information and use it only for the purpose provided.
Information Collected Automatically
When users surf the NADP website, NADP collects the following data for statistical purposes only:
- the IP address from which users access our Web site;
- the date and time of their visits;
- the URLs of the pages that they view;
- WAIS searches and retrievals, including search terms.
We use these statistics to make improvements to the NADP website, not to identify individual users or their searches. We do not enable cookies to monitor usage or to gather users’ personal information.
Information Collected via Correspondence with NADP
Personal information submitted by a user in comments or questions via phone, fax, or e-mail is not distributed to parties outside of NADP. Identifying information, such as name, e-mail address, and phone or fax number, is used only for responding to users' comments or questions, and is not made available for other purposes. If your inquiry indicates that you have an interest in particular NADP products/services such as publications or educational programs, we may provide you information on those products/services in the future with an option to unsubscribe as required by law.
Information Collected via NADP Online Store
Personal information supplied by a user when submitting an order via the NADP Mall, phone, fax, or e-mail is used for fulfilling that order. This information may be used to notify customers of new products that may be of interest.
Information submitted through an order placed on the NADP Mall is protected by the use of commercial encryption software. By using this software to create a secure environment for online information exchange, NADP ensures that only authorized personnel can view personal information, such as credit card numbers.
NADP does not enable cookies to monitor usage or to gather users’ personal information; however, "session cookies" are used to aid in the selection of items on the NADP Mall. To take full advantage of the shopping cart features on the NADP Mall, users must have session cookies enabled on their browser. Session cookies disappear from the user's computer when an Internet session ends.
Definitions of Privacy Terms
Cookies: Cookies are small pieces of information that Web servers or pages store on a user’s hard drive. There are two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Both types of cookies allow Internet servers to "remember" specific information about a user. Web sites use them primarily to personalize their sites for individual users, to keep track of orders when users purchase products, and to target advertising toward users based on the information that they access. However, session cookies will "remember" that information for only as long as you explore a Web site during one "session", or visit to the Web site. Session cookies will not "remember" information about you when you return to the site for subsequent visits. However, persistent cookies will "remember" this information for more than one session. NADP does not use persistent cookies on our web site unless you are a regular visitor to the site that has a user ID and password.
Encryption: Encryption technology ensures the protection of personal information via private, secure transactions.
