NESA uses commercially reasonable practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your account information and to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information. However, no data transmitted over the Internet is 100% secure. Accordingly, while NESA does make commercially reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, any information that you provide to NESA is provided at your own risk and you assume all responsibility and risk for your use of the Site, the Internet generally, and the information you may post or access and for your conduct on and off the Site.

In order to operate the Site in an efficient and effective manner and to provide you with information that may be of interest to you, NESA collects personal information, such as name, company name, physical address, IP address and email address when you apply to become a member of NESA and when you request to participate in a forum (or related discussion board). We also maintain a membership list, which includes the name, physical address, phone number, and fax number of all NESA members. We may, at our discretion, collect additional information from users who made requests via the Site (i.e. registering for events, making membership payments, or other inquiries). Please understand that when you publicly display personal information (i.e. using a forum on the Site), that information can be collected and used by others and NESA is not liable or responsible for the collection or use of information that is retrievable by the public.  We may use the information that we collect from you to fulfill your requests, to manage the Site, to communicate with you about membership, registration, products, services, events and other opportunities related to NESA (or its members), to conduct research and analysis and to expand our services and outreach.

NESA may disclose information that it collects to third parties, in order to perform services on NESA’s behalf, fulfill a request that you have made through the Site, or as otherwise requires to further its objectives described in these Terms of Use or elsewhere on this Site. NESA also reserves the right to disclose information that it collects as necessary to comply with the law or to cooperate with or seek assistance from law enforcement or to protect the interests of NESA or other members, or to an entity that is a successor or affiliate organization to NESA. These disclosures may be made with or without your consent or notice to you.
