Information that we collect from you
When you visit, register or order products or services on the Websites you may be asked to provide certain information about yourself ("personally identifiable information") so that we can provide you with a particular service. For example, if you would like to book a place on one of our courses or events, we will ask you for information such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and credit card number to process your booking. We will use your e-mail address to send a confirmation and, if necessary, might use the other information to contact you for help to process the booking. We may also use your e-mail address to notify you about future courses or events as described in the E-Mail section of this policy, but you can opt out of e-mails at any time by following the procedures outlined in that section of this statement.
The Websites do not collect personally identifiable information from your computer when you browse them and request pages from our servers. This means that, unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide us with personally identifiable information, we will not know your name, your e-mail address, or any other information about you. When you request a page from the Websites, our servers log the information provided in the HTTP request header including the IP number, the time of the request, the URL of your request and other information that is provided in the HTTP header. We collect the HTTP request header information in order to make the Websites function correctly. We also use this information to better understand how visitors use the Websites and how we can improve their content and functionality.
Use of Information
The personally identifiable information you provide to us will be used to enable us to provide a particular product or service. The information is stored for record-keeping purposes only and is not accessed again. Unless you tell us otherwise, the information you provide may be used by us for direct marketing of other products and services provided by NADFAS or the products and services of selected reputable third parties with whom NADFAS has a strategic marketing relationship because they offer products or services that we believe would of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive this information, please let us know.
We have implemented technical, managerial, and operational security, rules, procedures and measures, to ensure that your personal information is held within operating environments that are not available to the public. We take steps to guard against unauthorised access, improper use, alteration, destruction, and accidental loss of personal data. This includes rules for all our staff with access to the servers or databases that hold your personal information. Although we make every effort to create a secure environment for your personal information, we cannot guarantee the safety of any personal information you transmit to us online.
Disclosure of Information to Third Parties
NADFAS uses the services of third parties, such as e-mail service providers and marketing companies that act as agents on its behalf. These parties are contractually prohibited from using personally identifiable information for any purpose other than for the purpose NADFAS specifies. In addition, we may disclose your personally identifiable information to successors in title to our business. We do provide non-personally identifiable information to certain service providers for their use on an aggregated basis for the purpose of performing their contractual obligations to us. We prohibit the sale or transfer of personal information to entities outside of NADFAS for their use without your approval.
Our Websites use "cookie" technology. "Cookies" are encrypted strings of text that a website stores on a user's computer.
In addition, the service providers we use to serve and host our website, and/or deliver our e-mails, use session and persistent cookies, to track the number of times our Website is accessed and where the site was accessed from. Sometimes cookie technology is used to track the number of times an advertisement is viewed. In all cases, the cookie generated from the advertisement or e-mail does not contain any personally identifiable information and will remain on your hard drive until you delete it.
You may set your browser to block cookies (consult the instructions for your particular browser on how to do this), although doing so will adversely affect your ability to perform certain transactions, use certain functionality and access certain content on our Websites.
NADFAS and its third party service providers use pixel tags (also known as "clear gifs", "beacon gifs", etc.). Pixel tags are not visible to the user of the Websites and consist of a few lines of computer coding. Pixel tags are not used to collect any personally identifiable information about you apart from what you voluntarily provide to us. NADFAS and our e-mail service provider use pixel tags to track responses to advertisements and website content and to determine your ability to receive HTML-based e-mail messages. Our e-mail service provider includes a pixel tag, which they refer to as a "coded sensor", in all of the HTML-based messages sent on our behalf. The sensor activates when the e-mail message is opened and flags the e-mail address of the user as one that is capable of receiving HTML-based e-mail messages. This capability helps our service provider to send the e-mail in a format you can read. The sensor does not collect or use any other information. If you cannot receive HTML, you will not receive a functioning sensor.
E-Mails about Courses and Future Events
It is our intention to send you only e-mail communications that will be useful to you and that you want to receive. We may periodically contact you via e-mail and provide information about courses and events that may be of interest to you. We use a third party e-mail service provider to send e-mails. This service provider is prohibited from using your e-mail address for any purpose other than to send e-mail relating to our products and services. In addition, we may send you e-mail communications relating to the promotions of select, reputable third parties with whom we have a strategic marketing relationship because they offer products or services that we believe would be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive such information please let us know.
Our Websites may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that NADFAS is not responsible for the privacy practices and policies of such other sites. The policies set forth in this statement apply only to this Website and not to the websites of any other person.
You have a right under English law to access any personal information about you that is held by NADFAS. To obtain a copy of any such information, please write to us at the address indicated above.
NADFAS will only disclose personally identifiable information without your permission when required by law, or in good faith belief that such action is necessary to investigate or protect against suspected criminal activities to our guests, visitors, associates, or property (including this site), or to others.
