NSVAS.com is the sole owner of the information collected on NSVAS.com. NSVAS.com collects information from our users at several
different points on our Web site.
In order to use this Web site, a user must first complete the registration
form. During registration a user [is required to] give[s] contact information
(such as name and email address). We use this information to contact the
user about services on our site for which he has expressed interest. It
is optional for the user to provide demographic information (such as income
level and gender), and unique identifiers (such as, username and password),
but encouraged so we can provide a more personalized experience on our
site. We also require a users social security number to provide.
We request information from the user on our order form. A user must provide

We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, clear
gifs, and/or third parties to create a profile of our users. A profile
is stored information that we keep on individual users that details their
viewing preferences. Consequently, collected information is tied to the
users personally identifiable information to provide offers and improve
the content of the site for the user. This profile is used to tailor a
users visit to our Web site, and to direct pertinent marketing promotions
to them. We [do not] share your profile with other third parties. [Your
profile is shared in aggregate form only.] [Your profile is shared together
with your personally identifiable information.]
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the users computer tied to
information about the user. [Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to
any personally identifiable information while on our site.] We use [both]
session ID cookies [and] persistent cookies. For the session ID cookie,
once users close the browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent
cookie is a small text file stored on the users hard drive for an
extended period of time. Persistent cookies can be removed by following
Internet browser help file directions.
By setting a cookie
on our site, users would not have to log in a password more than once,
thereby saving time while on our site. If users reject the cookie, they
may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will
be limited in some areas of our site. For example, [the user will not
be able to participate in any of our sweepstakes, contests or monthly
drawings that take place.] Persistent cookies enable us to track and target
the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. See

of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications.

On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related
announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for
maintenance we might send users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out
of these communications, though they can deactivate their account. However,
these communications are not promotional in nature. [Users may opt-out
of these communications. Please see our Choice and Opt-out section.]
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services
and in regards to issues relating to their account we reply via email
or phone, in accordance with the users wishes.
We DO NOT Share
Personal Information with Third Parties
In the event NSVAS.com goes through a business transition, such as
a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its
assets, users personal information will, in most instances, be part
of the assets transferred. Users will be notified via email prior to a
change of ownership or control of their personal information. If as a
result of the business transition, the users personally identifiable
information will be used in a manner different from that stated at the
time of collection they will be given choice consistent with our notification
of changes section.
Our users are given the opportunity to opt-out of having their
information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the
point where we ask for information. For example, our order form has an
opt-out mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but
dont want any marketing material, can keep their email address off
of our lists.
Users who no longer
wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications may opt-out
of receiving these communications by replying to unsubscribe in the subject
line in the email or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Users of our site
are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside
parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether
or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we,
NSVAS.com, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such
other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site
and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects
personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely
to information collected by this Web site.
Surveys [& Contests]
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys
or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely
voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose
this information. The requested information typically includes contact
information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information
(such as zip code). Contact information will be used [shared with the
contest [survey] sponsors] to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey
information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use
and satisfaction of this site. Users personally identifiable information
is not shared with third parties unless we give prior notice and choice.
Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys or contests,
they may not use users personally identifiable information for any
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about
our site, we ask them for the friends name and email address. NSVAS.com will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting
them to visit the site. NSVAS.com does not store this information.
The friend may contact NSVAS.com at email@example.com to request
the removal of this information from our database.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users information.
When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information
is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order
form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number
and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected
with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure
page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers
such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked,
as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just surfing.
While we use SSL encryption
to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our
power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users information,
not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our
offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific
job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative)
are granted access to personally identifiable information.
If users have any
questions about the security at our Web site, users can send an email
In order for this Web site to properly fulfill its obligation to users
it is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information
from 3rd party sources.
If a users personally identifiable information changes (such as
zip code, phone, email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires
our service, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate
users personally identifiable information. This can usually be done
by emailing our Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, contact
us by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed below.
Notification of Changes
to this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate
so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use
it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We will use
If, however, we are
going to use users personally identifiable information in a manner
different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users
via email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their
information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out
of all communication with the site, or deleted/deactivated their account,
then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be
used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes
in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored
in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our Web site notifying
users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also
email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying
them of the changes in our privacy practices.
