This Privacy Policy applies to the NOACC Web site and governs the collection and use of user information. NOACC encourages you to read this Privacy Policy carefully.

Collection of Personal Information
NOACC collects information from its users in different ways as more fully described below.

Computer Hardware and Software Information
NOACC collects automatically certain technical information about your computer hardware and software including your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by NOACC to provide and maintain the quality of its service and to provide general information regarding the use of the NOACC web site.

Other Collection
Please remember that if you directly disclose personal information through e-mail, chat rooms, instant messaging, online shopping (see below) or by other such means of online communication, that information could be collected and used by others. NOACC does not read any of your online communications.

Use of Personal Information by NOACC
NOACC uses the information to personalize and deliver services requested by our constituencies, and to manage your account. The NOACC web site also uses this information to inform you of other products or services available from NOACC. Generally, NOACC does not disclose customer information to third parties. On some occasions, NOACC may share non-identifying aggregate information to technical third party administrators (for example the number of NOACC Web site subscribers but not their names or addresses).

NOACC will disclose personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to (1) comply with the order of any court or governmental agency; or (2) protect and defend the rights or property of NOACC or NOACC’s users.

Online Shopping
Some Web sites allow users to purchase products and services or to register to receive catalogs, product or service updates, or other materials. In such cases, you may be asked to provide contact information such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and credit/debit card information if you are making a purchase. NOACC has no control over third party Web sites or their use of any personal information you provide to them. If you order products or services directly from NOACC, we use any personal information collected to process and fill your order. We do not share such information with outside parties except as described above.

Commitment to Security
NOACC has instituted security measures covering the Services and Web sites we sponsor to protect against loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control. While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally obtaining this information.

NOACC reserves the right to revise or modify this policy, our Internet Service Agreement and any other policies or agreements at any time. Notice of any revision or modification will be provided in accordance with the Internet Service Agreement.
