NetNewsdesk ("NND") is the company that maintains and operates the software used by its clients ("Clients") to send email communications to you from time to time. NND is committed to protecting your privacy. Any information gathered by NND will be kept strictly confidential. We will never use or share your information without your consent.
The core of our Policy is this: NND and the NND Client who collects your information will not knowingly release, sell, rent or trade your personal information to any third party without your permission unless such release is required by law. NND considers personal information to include name, e-mail address, home or mailing address, phone number, birth date, anniversary date, or other information you voluntarily provide to us through any online or offline means (your "Personal Information").
In order to take advantage of some of our Client's services, features, programs or events you may need to register and/or provide Personal Information before you can participate. Our Clients may from time to time use this Personal Information to send you e-mails, newsletters or other communications about their services and offers, but they are prohibited from allowing any third party to use your Personal Information in any way.
NND maintains internal security controls in order to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of your Personal Information by third parties. These controls can include firewalls and other security features. Customer accounts are password-protected so that only the customer has access to his/her personal information. It is incumbent on the customer not to divulge their password to anyone. We will never ask for a customer's password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Although we make every effort to ensure security of customer information, no data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure over the Internet. In addition, NND endeavors to assure that Client content adheres to the highest commercial standards, but NND cannot be responsible for such content or for content linked to an NND Client site.
You have complete control over your Personal Information. At any time you may "opt-out" of receiving further communications about the products and services of NND Clients. There is an opt-out feature located in the footer of all communications from NND Clients. Also, NND wants your Personal Information to be accurate and complete. If you want to change any of your personal data or preferences you can email us at info@NetNewsdesk.com or contact the customer services facility at the applicable Client center.
You should keep in mind that if you voluntarily disclose Personal Information online at other websites, that information may be accessible to others. This is also true if anyone else has access to your personal computer, such as an employer or family member. Also, if you link to a third party site from our site, any information you disclose to that site is not subject to this Policy. You should consult the privacy policies of each site you visit.
Use of "Clear GIFs"
A "Clear GIF" is a transparent graphic image placed in an email or on a website, used to track user traffic. NND uses Clear GIFs to aggregate data used to analyze the performance of an email and related micro-sites. This data is used for internal NND marketing purposes only. The frequency with which emails are opened and content links are clicked are examples of the metrics calculated using Clear GIFs.
