This Statement of Privacy applies to the National RTAP website and governs data collection and usage. By using the National RTAP website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

 

Collection of your Personal Information

 

National RTAP collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. National RTAP also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code.

 

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by National RTAP. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by National RTAP for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the National RTAP website.

 

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through National RTAP public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: National RTAP does not read any of your private online communications.

 

National RTAP encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from National RTAP so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. National RTAP is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the National RTAP and National RTAP family of websites.

 

Use of your Personal Information

 

National RTAP collects and uses your personal information to operate the National RTAP website and deliver the services you have requested. National RTAP also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from National RTAP and its affiliates. National RTAP may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

 

National RTAP does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. National RTAP may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, National RTAP may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to National RTAP, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

 

National RTAP does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

 

National RTAP keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within National RTAP, in order to determine what National RTAP services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within National RTAP to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

 

National RTAP websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on National RTAP or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of National RTAP; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of National RTAP, or the public.

 

Use of Cookies

 

The National RTAP website uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

 

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize National RTAP pages, or register with National RTAP site or services, a cookie helps National RTAP to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same National RTAP website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the National RTAP features that you customized.

 

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the National RTAP services or websites you visit.

 

Security of your Personal Information

 

National RTAP secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. National RTAP secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.

Changes to this Statement

 

National RTAP will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. National RTAP encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how National RTAP is protecting your information.
