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:
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.
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:
NAGAP. Generally, NAGAP and its direct subsidiaries use data collected to improve its own web content, to respond to visitors’ interests, needs and preferences, and to develop new services.
Disclosures to Third Parties. NAGAP also makes contact information available to those who register for its conferences. However, attendees have the option of opting out of this as indicated at the time of registration or joining as a member.
