2.1      Collection and use of personal information

The information we learn from members and consumers  helps us personalize and continually improve our members and consumer  experience at and othe sites. We use the information to handle memberships, deliver products and services, process payments, communicate with you about membership, products, services and promotional offers, update our records and generally maintain membership information with us. We also use this information to improve our association and platform and to prevent or detect fraud or abuses of our website.

Here are the types of information we gather.

  • Information given to us by members: we receive and store any information members and future members enter on our website or give us in any other ways. Members and consumers can choose not to provide certain information but may not be able to take advantage of many of our features.
  • Automatic information: we receive and store certain types of information whenever members and consumers interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use “cookies” and we obtain certain types of information when a Web browser accesses or other association websites. A number of companies offer utilities designed to help clients visit websites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide members and the public with a personalized experience at NASC if we cannot recognize that member or consumer, we need to make our members and the consumer aware that these tools exist.

2.2      Cookies

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that are transferred to a computer’s hard drive through a Web browser. This enables our systems to recognize our members and the consumer and enables us to personalize greetings in our forums  and storage of items in a Shopping Cart between visits when such service exists.

Information on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether is available on the Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers. However, cookies allow clients to take full advantage of some of NASC’s most innovative and useful features and we recommend that they are left turned on.

If you do leave cookies turned on, be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.

2.3      Does the NASC share information ?

Information about our Members and their clients is an important part of our business and we are not in the business of selling it to others without their consent. Members will be able to submit a signed statement allowing certain information to be shared with the public and other members. Any and all information posted on the pubic side of any of our websites by our members or advertisers will, of course, be available for public viewing and no statement of authorization will be needed.


2.4      How secure is client information ?

We work to protect the security of collected information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts any data input to our site.

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to any of our clients.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.

2.5      Maintaining Client information

All NASC member information and consumer information stored on our databases can be maintained either by the NASC, or by the owner of that information, providing they are in possession of the correct security details – ie email address and password.

As our website evolves we may want to collect, store and maintain more information about our members and the consumer. Members will be notified of any changes, amendments or upgrades to the website, its content and database content.


2.6      What Choices do members have ?

As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of NASC features.

Members  can add or update certain information on pages in their DSP (Designated Solution Pro)  or Technical Profile at any time

The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. However, you will not be able to use many important features if you do not use cookies.

2.7      Conditions of use, notices and revisions

If you choose to visit or other association websites, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Privacy Notice and our Conditions of Use, including limitations on damages and application of the laws of the United States. If you have any concern about privacy at NASC, please send a thorough description to and we will try to resolve it.

Our business changes constantly and our Privacy Notice and the Conditions of Use will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions,  but you should check our website frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of member and customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected members and consumers.
