NMA respects your privacy and is committed to protecting personally identifiable information that you provide in connection with your use of its Web sites and Services.
E-mail Newsletter Subscriptions
To subscribe to our e-mail newsletters, you will need to provide your e-mail address. You may also be asked for other information when you subscribe.
To participate in some Services such as promotions and surveys (“Special Promotions”), or to make online purchases (“Purchases”), you will need to provide personally identifiable information, such as name, mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, and date of birth. Your information may be collected by NMA or by a third party e-commerce partner, such Google or PayPal, in the case of a Purchase (e.g., www.google.com or www.paypal.com).
If you make a Purchase or participate in a Special Promotion on this site or through our Services, NMA will collect your personally identifiable information, and you are deemed to consent to us providing your information to third parties who provide certain services such as processing of credit card transactions, customer service, promotion administration, and order fulfillment, as applicable. (As more fully described below in Use, Disclosure, and Sharing of Information - Personally Identifiable Information, these third parties are prohibited from using this information for their own marketing purposes and/or from sharing, selling, or otherwise distributing any personal data of our customers, unless you choose to opt in for such additional uses and/or disclosure by the third parties, under their respective privacy policies.)
Information About Other People
In some cases this NMA and its Services may ask you to submit personally identifiable information about other people. For example, you might submit a person's name and other personally identifiable information if you purchase a gift and want to have it sent directly to the recipient. A record of that transaction will be maintained as allowed and/or required by law.
Some Services may offer support through our customer service center via e-mail. Whenever you communicate with customer service, you do so with the understanding that an operator may view and make changes to the information in your User Account in order to provide the assistance that you need.
NMA Web sites, and some Services and advertisements may contain “cookies” or similar technology. A cookie is a piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser, which will store the cookie on your computer if your browser is enabled to accept cookies.
Most Internet browsers will allow you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block acceptance of cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. You should refer to your browser instructions or “Help” screen to learn more about how to manage cookies. Please note, however, that if you block cookies, some portions of the NMA Web site and Services may not function properly.
NMA recognizes the sensitivity of personally identifiable information concerning children under the age of 13 and therefore provides this special notice. NMA is committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations regarding children, including the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). Except in limited circumstances allowed by COPPA, NMA will not knowingly collect, maintain, or disclose any personally identifiable information from a child under 13 without first obtaining consent from that child's parent or legal guardian.
If you are a parent or guardian who has discovered that your child under the age of 13 has submitted his or her personally identifiable information without your permission or consent, NMA will make reasonable efforts to remove the information from its active list, at your request. To request the removal of your child's information, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to include in your message the same User Name and password and/or e-mail address that your child submitted.
NMA encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to become familiar with the types of content available on the NMA Web site and the Internet generally.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
From time to time, NMA may use and share with third parties aggregate, non-personally identifiable user information to show general demographic and preference information among users of the NMA Web sites.
Personally Identifiable Information
NMA uses information about you to deliver the Services that you request, to keep you informed about changes affecting our Services or your account, to inform you of other Services or offers in which you might be interested, and to improve and enhance our sites and Services. If you provide NMA with personally identifiable information, we will take all reasonable and appropriate steps to protect it from unauthorized disclosure.
If you opt in to receive e-mail from us, you can always opt out of future marketing messages by following the directions in each message to “unsubscribe.” However, if you choose to opt out of marketing messages, we reserve the right to contact you regarding your account status, technical support, product information, changes to account terms, and any other matter that might affect our service to you and/or any products you purchased from us or registered with us, as applicable.
As stated above in Personally Identifiable Information That We Collect — Special Promotions and Purchases, NMA may also work with third parties (e.g., www.google.com, www.paypal.com or www.amazon.com) to provide some Services on our sites. In connection with those Services, you are deemed to consent to us sharing your information with third parties who provide services such as processing of credit card transactions, customer service, promotion administration, and order fulfillment, as applicable. Third parties who provide, or participate in, Services on NMA sites are prohibited from using our customers' personally identifiable information for marketing purposes and/or from sharing, selling, or otherwise using such information, unless you choose to opt in to marketing, sharing, or other uses by the third parties. If you do not want your information to be used for marketing (or other purposes unrelated to the provision of NMA Services) by a third party who participates in a Service on our site, do not opt in to such use by that third party when you register to participate in the Service.
While NMA takes reasonable and appropriate precautions to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized disclosure and to prevent possible security breaches in our Web site, Services, and customer databases, no Web site, Internet transmission, computer system, or wireless connection is completely secure. Consequently, NMA cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. Your use of this NMA site and Services is at your own risk. NMA urges you to take steps to keep your information safe by memorizing your password or keeping it in a safe place (separate from your account information), logging out of your User Account, and closing your Web browser.
Whenever you give NMA sensitive or confidential information (for example, credit card numbers for Purchases), NMA will take commercially reasonable steps to protect the information by establishing a secure connection with your Web browser. NMA employs a security technology known as a secure-socket-layer (“SSL”) to protect the transmission of payment information to the site. Unless otherwise specified herein or on the site where you make a Purchase, credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are not retained for marketing purposes.
This NMA site may frame, and/or contain links to, or advertisements about, non-NMA Web sites. Other sites may also reference, advertise, or link to this NMA site. NMA does not endorse or sponsor other Web sites, is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of non-NMA sites, expressly disclaims any statements or assertions made on such Web sites, and denies all liability associated with your use of, and the content on, such other sites and advertisements.
