NYSA is committed to protecting your personal information. This statement explains our practices for this Web site.
What Personal Information We Gather
We gather personal information that we need to know when you ask us to do something for you. For example, if you ask us to send you information about the Association, we need to know and store your email address. We will always ask for your permission and tell you how we’re going to use your personal information first. You can always choose not to provide it.
How We Use It
We only use the personal information we gather for purposes that you have agreed to, for example, to send you a newsletter. We do not collect personal information about any of our site’s visitors unless the visitor authorizes us to do so.
Who Has Access to It
Only people within NYSA who need to access your personal information can access it; for example, the people who send a newsletter need to know your email address.
How We Share It
We do not sell or provide your personal information to any third parties.
We use current security measures to safeguard your personal information.
- We control access so that only people who need to access the information can.
- To use the Member Center, you must use a unique, confidential Open Text userID and password.
- When you use secure areas of the site, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol with 128-bit encryption. This means that all the information sent between your computer and our secure computer environment is encrypted or scrambled so that no one can read it in transit. You can read it and we can read it-no one else. There are two cues to show you that you are using a secure area. First, the Web site address (or URL) appears as https:// (instead of just http://)-the “s” is for “secure.” Second, a lock or key indicator appears in the status bar of your Web browser.
- Secure areas of the site have a time-out feature. If you leave your secure session inactive for some time, it times-out to prevent unauthorized access.
If you send us an email, we may save it if we think we’ll need it to communicate with you. We never sell or share email addresses. Remember, email is not a secure way to send personal information because it is not encrypted. Please don’t send any personal information to us using email; use our secure forms instead.
Changes to this Statement
We may amend this privacy and security statement from time to time. If we make any substantial changes in the way we use your personal information, we will notify you by posting a prominent announcement on this Web site.
