  3. Questions About the Privacy Policy

 

  1. What Information We Collect From You, and How We Use That Information
    NRTC does not collect any personally identifiable information from you (e.g., name, address, member number telephone number, e-mail address) unless you voluntarily choose to submit or otherwise disclose such information to us, including information submitted or disclosed by mail, telephone, fax, or electronically. NRTC will only use your information to respond to your request for information or, if appropriate, notify you of special offers, information or notices from NRTC or third parties that we may think may be of interest to you. We may also use your information to consider your request for consideration of employment with NRTC, if applicable.

    Monitoring, Enforcement and Legal Requests: NRTC has no obligation to monitor the Web site or the use of the Web site, or to retain the content of any user session. However, NRTC reserves the right at all times to monitor, review, retain, and/or disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request or to cooperate with law enforcement and other authorities in investigating a claim of illegal activity. We may use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to protect our service, Web site, customers, or others.

    Other Sites: Except as otherwise expressly discussed in this Privacy Policy, this policy only addresses NRTC’s use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose personal information to other sites that this Web site contains links to, you are subject to the privacy customs and policies of these other sites.

  2. How We Protect Your Information
    Transmission Errors or Unauthorized Acts: Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, NRTC cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided online, and you do so at your own risk. NRTC will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. However, once we receive your transmission, we do our best to ensure its security on our systems by making reasonable efforts to protect the information.

    Security: Any information provided to NRTC is treated with care and discretion. We will take a proactive approach to ensure the information is kept private and not misused.
