Information We Collect
Purposes for Collecting Your Personal Information
We collect your personal information to provide better services to all of our Website users – from providing, maintaining, protecting and improving our Website, to providing you with brochures you have may have requested, product information and promotions.
If you are under the age of 18, be sure to obtain your parent or guardian's permission before you send any personal information to us, or anyone else. We encourage parents to get involved with their children's online usage and to be aware of the activities in which they are participating.
How We Collect Your Personal Information
When you visit our Website and you contact us via the Contact Us Form, submit a comment, subscribe to receive information concerning the Website, make a purchase or register for a conference, you may be asked to provide personal information (such as name, email address, telephone number, mailing address, billing information) for the purpose of administering your request and contacting you. For purchases and conference registrations, such personal information may include obtaining your credit card information. The registration and order process itself will be protected via a secure connection and you will be asked for information essential to registering or placing the order itself. When you provide your contact information, we may also ask you to provide optional personal information such as demographic information (e.g. age) and profile information. It is not necessary to provide this optional personal information in order to receive a response to your request.
In addition, at the time you provide your personal information you may be given the opportunity to opt-in to receiving updates and notifications regarding special promotions, products, services and other information, including but not limited to information about NASoE, its affiliates if any, partners and other third parties, which may interest you (“Mailings”). If you authorize us to send you Mailings, we may do so by using either the e-mail or the mailing address you provided. If you no longer wish to receive Mailings, send us an email at .
Use of Information
NASoE uses personal information of visitors to our Website in order to respond to your request or, if you checked the opt-in box, to send you Mailings.
NASoE may also use your personal information to create aggregated information that does not allow you to be personally identified or contacted. Rather than showing individual activity, aggregated information shows user behaviour as a whole (for example, information might be compiled in order to calculate the number of customers living in certain geographic areas). Aggregated information is used to evaluate the use of our Website for development of the Website, new products and services and marketing initiatives. NASoE may disclose aggregated information to its affiliates and to agents appointed by it for purposes of administration or operation of the Website.
When We Disclose Your Personal Information
NASoE reserves the right to co-operate fully with local, provincial and federal officials in any investigation relating to any personal information (including private electronic communications transmitted on the Website) or any purported unlawful activities.
How We Protect Your Personal Information
NASoE makes all commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that personal information collected from you is protected against loss and unauthorized access and is collected and stored in a secure manner. We have taken great precautions to ensure that our systems are secure, utilizing a secure hosting location. However, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our servers, nor can we guarantee that information that users supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet.
Retention and Destruction of Personal Information
Documents regarding your personal information will be retained only for the period required by law or as operationally necessary and then destroyed/erased in a confidential manner.
