The information we learn from users helps us personalize and continually improve our offerings and your experience with us, such as by customizing content (including advertising content), responding to e-mail requests, and communicating with you. We gather two basic types of information: "Personally Identifiable Information" that can identify a person as an individual (e.g., name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address) and "Non-Personally Identifiable Information," which may include aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses, and any other information that does not necessarily reveal a person's specific identity. Within those two broad categories, we gather the following types of information:
A. Information You Provide to Us: We may receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us in any way. This may include your first and last name, nickname, e-mail address, mailing address, password, telephone number, date of birth, gender, and any other information you provide in your profile or registration. Information you provide us may also include information you provide when: accessing a service, purchasing a membership, making a charitable donation or ordering a product (which may include your credit card and related information); submitting/posting of professional or personal resumes and curriculum vitae; entering a contest or sweepstake, filling out a survey, posting a review or comment, providing feedback, requesting information, sending messages, or performing searches. Some or all of the functionality contemplated in the preceding sentence may or may not be available at any given time.
You may choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may prevent you from: participating in or utilizing the activity or service (e.g., e-mail alerts), posting comments to our Site, creating a user profile, performing searches or queries, sending messages, purchasing products or services, or communicating with us.
In addition to cookies, we may use other technologies like web beacons and pixel tags to track your use of our Website pages and promotions, or we may allow our Third Party Service Providers to use these devices on our behalf. Web beacons and pixel tags are small graphic images placed on websites or in e-mails that indicate whether you have performed a specific action. When you access these pages or open or click an e-mail, such web beacons and pixel tags generate a notice of that action. Web beacons and pixel tags may provide information about visitor traffic and behavior on our Site and provide a way to measure the effectiveness of any marketing or promotions. We may also utilize web beacons and pixel tags provided by our affiliated businesses for the same purposes.
C. Automatic Information: We may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many web sites and as addressed above, we may use "cookies," and we may automatically collect certain types of information when your Web browser accesses our Site or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of us on other sites. This may include information about your operating system and browser, your IP address, pages you requested on our Site, shopping and purchase preferences, and history. We may use this data to, among other things, customize and enhance our Site and offerings as well as your experience with third parties (as provided in Section 2), and to help operate and administer our Site.
Generally, our Site may automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Site and its components. We may use this data in the aggregate to design and improve our Site and offerings, and we may provide this information to affiliated businesses so they can understand how often users use areas of our Site, to help enable them to provide you with an optimal Web experience. We may also collect and use that information for internal purposes.
We may use Non-Personally Identifiable Information to: troubleshoot; administer our Site; analyze trends; gather demographic and preference information; enhance and customize our offerings; measure the effectiveness of any online advertising, content, and programming; cooperate with governmental authorities and otherwise comply with applicable law. We may also share this information with our authorized affiliated businesses and advertisers for these purposes. We may also publish this information for promotional purposes or as a representative audience for advertisers.
D. E-mail Communications: We may receive confirmation via HTML code when you open an e-mail from us. We may use that information to measure the effectiveness of our Site and offerings and reduce or eliminate duplicate e-mails. If you no longer wish to receive promotional e-mails from us, please unsubscribe or change your profile settings. Even if you opt-out of promotional e-mails, however, we may continue to send you any necessary administrative or transactional e-mails, such as those regarding purchase transactions.
E. Information from Other Sources: We may receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information to help personalize our offerings.
We neither rent nor sell your personally identifiable information to anyone. We share your personal information only as provided in this Policy or with your consent, to the entities described below.
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We may affiliate with a variety of businesses and provide or promote products jointly with those affiliated businesses. You will easily recognize when an affiliated business is involved in your transaction. We will only share personal information that is related to those transactions or is necessary for the affiliated business to complete the transaction.
Agents/Third Party Service Providers: We may employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you ("Third Party Service Providers"). Examples include sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, performing surveys, tracking clicks, analyzing data, performing administrative functions and website operations, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. We may also provide your personal information to agents who will use it to verify aggregate usage data that we provide to our affiliated businesses. These agents may not use your information for any other purposes.
Promotional Offers: We may send you offers on behalf of other businesses. But when we do so, we will not give the other business your name and address. If you do not wish to receive these offers, please notify us by e-mail through the "Contact Us" link on our Site.
Discussion Forums, Blogs, Comments, and User-Generated Content: The information you provide us in connection with your user profile and any content you post to the Site may be used to facilitate and provide your requested services within the Site or your requested services through other websites (such as if you request our assistance with any affiliated businesses). Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose online (on discussion boards, in blogs, comments, messages, and chat areas, and within your public profile page, etc.) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by us and others; such information may be redistributed through the Internet and other media channels and may be viewed by the general public.
Communication About the Site or in Response to Your Requests: As part of the Site and our services, you may receive e-mail and other communication relating to your use of the Site or your user account. You acknowledge and agree that by posting information on the Site or otherwise using the Site, we and our agents may send you e-mail or otherwise contact you as we determine necessary in our sole discretion related to your use of the Site. We may use your e-mail address to send updates, a newsletter, or other news regarding the Site or our offerings.
Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets or the business itself. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets transferred. Moreover, if NeBAA, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, customer information would be one of the assets transferred or acquired by a third party, and you consent to that transfer as well as the successor entity’s continued use of your information as provided in this Policy.
With Your Consent: Other than those instances above in which we have specified that we will share information with third parties, you will be notified when your personal information may be shared with third parties.
As stated above, you can always opt not to disclose information, but then you may be unable to use certain features on our Site.
How Do I Opt Out, What Information Can I Access, and What Can I Delete?
If you create digital content on or through our Site (such as reviews, comments, or a blog) you may delete that content, but if the content has been reposted on other sites by NeBAA or other users, it cannot be deleted. Users may comment on posts. Such comments cannot be deleted. You may request deletion of your NeBAA account by sending a message to the "Contact Us" link at the Site. But even after your account has been disabled, information may remain in our records after deletion of your account.
We take security seriously and take numerous precautions to protect the security of Personally Identifiable Information. You can access your Personally Identifiable Information on our Site through a password and your e-mail address. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not share your password with anyone. In addition, your Personally Identifiable Information resides on a server that only selected personnel and contractors have access to. Certain financial and credit card information for purchases made through our Site is not relayed to our Site but only obtained through Third Party Vendors, such Pay Pal. If for any reason you provide, or authorize to be provided, NeBAA your financial or credit card information through other than electronic means, such information shall be retained only for purposes of verification of authorization and completion of transaction then destroyed as soon as practical.
We try to protect user information so that the user account information is kept private, but unauthorized use or entry, hardware or software failures, and other factors may undermine the security of user information at any time and no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, while we employ reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to affiliate with companies that do the same, we cannot guarantee the security of account information transmitted to or from the Site, and are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.
