NCPA respects the privacy of our members and visitors to our Web site. To protect your online privacy, NCPA has implemented the following policy that discloses the privacy practices for www.ncpanet.org.
Information Collected - General
NCPA is the sole owner of the information collected on our site. NCPA, and its divisions, uses data collected to better serve our members; to improve our own web content; to process a user's request (i.e. conference registration, product purchase, subscription service); to respond to visitors' interests, needs and preferences; and to develop and market new products and services.
This information is not sold or distributed in any other manner that is not disclosed in this policy.
Information Collected From NCPA Members, Conference Registrants, and Customers
To gain access to Member Resources and subscription/CE services on the NCPA Web site, members and other users may be asked to register and provide some information. This information is submitted voluntarily. NCPA asks users to provide information including their name, member number (for members), company/pharmacy name, contact information, business phone/fax, and e-mail.
Similar information may be submitted to NCPA through membership applications, conference or CE registration, publication/product orders, and subscriptions.
Information Collected From General Users
NCPA does not collect any personal information from users browsing our Web site. Users to the public areas of NCPA's Web site browse anonymously. Only aggregate data (see Log Files) may be collected.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends and track users' movements throughout our site. Aggregate data—such as the number of hits per page, what pages are visited—are also collected. Aggregate data are only used for internal and marketing purposes and do not provide any personally identifying information.
From time-to-time, NCPA will feature surveys and user polls on its Web site. Participation is voluntary. Information requested may include name, contact information, demographic information and survey/poll-related information. Such information will be used for improving the use of NCPA's services and product offerings.
NCPA may send out information on our products, services or special offers. We offer the option not to receive these types of communications. See Opt-Out/Redress below.
Cookies are files that contain information created by a web server that can be stored on a user's hard disk for use either during a particular session ("per-session" cookie) or for future use ("persistent" cookie). Cookies are used on the member's section to remember login information. Cookies are not used to disseminate significant information about users over the Internet or to analyze any information that users have knowingly or unknowingly provided. When a user registers, the system will ask whether the user approves of the attachment of a cookie. Users may instruct their Internet browsers to opt out of accepting a "persistent" cookie and rather accept only a "per-session" cookie, but will need to login each time they visit the site to enjoy the full benefits. If the user declines the attachment of any cookie, the user may not have access to the full benefits of the Web site.
