NLGI is committed to protecting the online privacy of visitors to its web site. We believe that greater protection of personal privacy on the web will not only protect consumers, but also increase consumer confidence and ultimately their participation in online activities. We intend to give you as much control as possible over your personal information.
The purpose of our policy is to inform you about the types of information we gather about you when you visit our site, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, the information.
What information does NLGI collect from me?
NLGI may collect information in several ways. For example, we may have pricing information on the Web site about our products, services and Annual Meeting, in which case we may gather some information when you register as a customer or potential customer, or registrant using our account interface. During registration, we will ask for your contact information, including your e-mail address. Once you register, you are no longer anonymous to NLGI and are able to take full advantage of our services. In addition to registration, we may ask you for information at other times, such as a vote on NLGI issues (NLGI Members), or information gathering to improve services. If you contact NLGI, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
If you believe that any inaccurate or inappropriate information has been obtained or disseminated through your use of this Web site, you should contact a representative of NLGI at [email protected].

Disclosure to Third Parties
We do not share personal identifying information with any third party without your permission. We disclose only in aggregate (group) form our statistical analyses or demographics of users to third parties, such as advertisers or other business partners. This aggregate information does not include names or e-mail addresses. PLEASE BE AWARE that when you voluntarily disclose personal information (such as your name or e-mail address) in chat areas or bulletin boards or to third parties, that information may be collected by others outside our control and may result in unsolicited messages from others.
Security of Information
We seek to ensure the security of personal information submitted by our users. When collecting credit card information for online purchases, we offer secured-server transactions that encrypt your information in transit to thwart someone from intercepting it and misusing it. When we collect other information from our users, it is stored in an area to which the general public does not have access.
