Your Information that NFA May Collect Online
You can affirmatively submit to NFA certain user information pertaining to your interaction with NFA. User information may include a search query (such as the name and location of a school or client) or other information as described more fully below. You can also provide location information to search out camps or events near you, or billing information. We also may infer your geographic location based on your IP address or other information. User information may also include information pertaining to a registration for an event, subscription, or request, such as your name, postal and e-mail address, phone and facsimile numbers, and description of request.
When you submit a comment to a blog post on the NFA website, you also submit your name and email address. When you apply to be a NFA subscriber, you submit your name, address and other contact information, and information about your qualifications. NFA may also collect information from a school, or individual, that inquires about online webinar or camp attendance or program participation, some of which could constitute identifying information about individuals. If you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, you submit your name, state/province and postal code, and may include your telephone number and email address, to NFA.
NFA websites are not designed with the purpose of attracting any person under age 13. NFA does not knowingly collect or maintain any personal information from children under the age of 13, unless it is voluntarily included by a parent, or guardian, related to a registration for an NFA event. NFA will only retain that information for purposes of notifying the parent or guardian of pertinent details related to the events for which they are registered.
How NFA Uses Your Information
We will use information you affirmatively submit to NFA for the purpose for which it is submitted, such as to reply to your email, publish your comment, process billing and product transactions, register your participation in an event, respond to requests related to program participation, and review applications to be an NFA subscriber. We may also use such information to provide information about upcoming events, promotions for new products, and to conduct feedback surveys on customer experiences. We may contact individuals registering for events with information about other future NFA events or, if relevant, membership or webinar opportunities.
We may use third party contractors to act on our behalf in sending out e-mailings, promotions, and event notifications, and these contractors are obligated to not disclose or use your information for other purposes.
At certain points where your information is collected on our site, there may be a box where you may indicate you would like to be on a mailing list to receive information about NFA or its affiliated organizations. This election box only appears in places where the service collecting your information maintains such lists. You can remove your name from the NFA mailing list by utilizing the appropriate unsubscribe feature contained in the emails.
