Effective Date: April 10, 2007 – Last modified February 28, 2022
Our privacy standards are designed to ensure that we will:
- collect and use only the minimum necessary Personal Information required for us to deliver services to you and to let you know of products and services that are available;
- protect your Personal Information, maintaining strict standards of security and confidentiality;
- not disclose your Personal Information to any external organization unless we have previously notified you and obtained your consent;
- require any other organization that we retain or engage to provide support services for us to conform to our privacy standards; and
- make every effort to keep your Personal Information complete, up to date, and accurate.
Keeping your Personal Information secure and ensuring your understanding of how we use and maintain your Personal Information is important to us. The NCDMM maintains physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your Personal Information and while no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure from intrusion, we have used and will continue to use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the protection of your Personal Information.
Sometimes we may use your Personal Information to advise you of products or services that may be available through the NCDMM or its affiliate partners. You may choose to “opt-out” of receiving emails from us by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, we may contact you via email for administrative or informational purposes, including follow-up messages regarding the administration of products or services you indicated an interest in or other transactions you have initiated with us.
Although your privacy is very important to us, in this legal and technical environment, we cannot fully ensure that your Personal Information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, we may be compelled to disclose your Personal Information to a governmental agency or a court. Additionally, we may (and you authorize us to do so) disclose your Personal Information to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries or to protect our own business and assets. In such circumstances, we will, where possible, require such third parties to maintain the confidentiality of any information so disclosed.
Our website contains links to the websites and services of our affiliate partners and other third parties. We are not responsible for and have no control over the privacy and data collection policies and practices implemented by such affiliate partners or third parties, some of which may be substantially different from our corresponding policies and practices. The NCDMM has no obligation and is not liable for the treatment or maintenance of any information, content, data or materials transmitted, distributed or otherwise provided by you via any such affiliate partner or third party website or service. It is your sole responsibility to review their respective policies and practices and determine whether the same are adequate.
