General Website Privacy Statement
NPAworldwide has a long-standing commitment to safeguarding the privacy of information entrusted to us. The privacy principles and procedures set forth below are intended to tell you how we collect, use, and distribute user information via our primary public website (www.npaworldwide.com). This statement also applies generally to all websites operated by NPAworldwide, including the NPAworldwide Job Board website. This statement does not cover information collected from sources other than NPAworldwide websites.
NPAworldwide offers a variety of services, and operates through a number of websites which may have their own privacy statements that describe the specific data collection and use practices of the particular service or site. We encourage you to review the privacy statements for those services and sites. Unless more-specifically addressed (or to the extent otherwise provided) in those other privacy statements, the terms of this General Privacy Statement govern your online interaction with NPAworldwide.
Types and Uses of Personal Information
If you use this website, personally identifiable information about you may be collected and processed by NPAworldwide employees and the employees of NPAworldwide member firms (affiliates). In general, we only collect such information (such as your name, address, phone number, email address, etc.) when you knowingly provide it to us. Additionally, NPAworldwide may automatically collect or process personally identifiable information (such as your internet domain or IP address) as part of the operation of this website or during the course of your activities on or use of this website. In nearly all cases this information may be collected or processed by, and transferred to, NPAworldwide and affiliate facilities in countries where NPAworldwide and affiliates do business; the information is then subject to the legal systems of those countries. By using this website (which resides in part on servers located in the United States), you unambiguously consent to our collection, processing, transfer or use of this personal information. If you do not consent to any collection, processing, transfer or use of such information, please discontinue use of this website.
Sharing with NPAworldwide Members
We may share much of our data, including personally identifiable information about you, with our affiliates. To the extent that these entities have access to your information, they will follow privacy practices no less protective than our practices described in this document, to the extent allowed by applicable law.
How Personal Information Is Shared With Third-Parties
Without the user’s consent, NPAworldwide will not sell, trade, or disclose the user’s personally identifiable information to third parties that want to market products to the user. However, NPAworldwide may disclose information to third parties assisting us in carrying out a transaction or providing a service for you (e.g., packaging, sending and delivering information to you or performing an employment search for you). Additionally, NPAworldwide may disclose information when required by subpoena, search warrant, or other legal process, or in response to activities that are unlawful or a violation of NPAworldwide’s rules for use of the website, or to protect and defend the rights or property of NPAworldwide.
NPAworldwide has implemented technological and operational security processes to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or unintentional destruction. While no security measure can guarantee against compromise, NPAworldwide regularly reviews and updates its security measures in an effort to provide appropriate security for all information held by NPAworldwide.
Modifications to Statement
NPAworldwide reserves the right to change, modify, or update this statement at any time without notice. We indicate the date of the current statement below, so you know when it was last updated.
Access and Accuracy
NPAworldwide wants to maintain only accurate information about users of the site. You can request individual information that has been gathered about you by contacting NPAworldwide. NPAworldwide will provide you with access to the personally identifiable information that it maintains about your use of the NPAworldwide websites or which you have supplied to NPAworldwide via the NPAworldwide Job Board website or submittal of forms. If you find factual inaccuracies, you will be able to correct the information on file.
NPAworldwide will not retain your personal information longer than is necessary for the purpose it was collected.
NPAworldwide takes minors’ privacy seriously. NPAworldwide asks minors under the age of 18 not to send any personally identifiable information through NPAworldwide websites without the consent of their parents or guardians. NPAworldwide encourages all parents and guardians to instruct their minors in the safe and responsible use of personal information on the internet. NPAworldwide will not knowingly collect, use, or disclose to third parties any personal information collected from minors, and we are committed to complying with applicable laws and requirements.
We provide links to third party sites. Since we do not control these websites, we encourage you to review the privacy statement posted on these (and all) third party sites. NPAworldwide is not responsible for the privacy statements or practices of sites and services controlled by other companies or organizations.
Some of our sites may also use Web beacon technologies to better tailor our sites to user preferences. When a user accesses a page containing a “Web beacon,” an anonymous notice of that visit is generated and may be processed by us or one of our vendors. Because Web beacons work in conjunction with cookies, users who do not want this information considered in association with anonymous cookie information should set their browsers to turn off cookies. (When users turn off cookies, Web beacon technologies will still detect user’s visits anonymously, but this information cannot be associated with other user information and is disregarded).
