This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for the North American Gaming Regulators Association at www.nagra.org. We are an independent, non-profit organization. Because this web site wants to demonstrate its commitment to your privacy, it has agreed to disclose its information practices.
Information Collection & Use
- NAGRA publications are the property of NAGRA and may not be reproduced or copied without the express, written permission of NAGRA.
- North American Gaming Regulators Association is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.
- A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user may be limited in some areas of our site.
- We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
- We will share aggregated demographic information with our granting agencies. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
- This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that North American Gaming Regulators Association is 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.
- If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.
- From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
- If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and email address. North American Gaming Regulators Association will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. North American Gaming Regulators Association stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. The friend may contact North American Gaming Regulators Association at firstname.lastname@example.org to request the removal of this information from their database.
- This website takes every precaution to protect our user’s information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. 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 user information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information.
Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customer information is protected.
Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to email@example.com.
Site & Service Updates
- We send all new members a welcoming email to verify password and username. Established members will occasionally receive information on projects, services, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see our choice and opt-out below.
Correcting/Updating Personal Information
- We also send the user site and service announcement updates. Members are not able to un-subscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email or phone.
- If a user personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user personal data provided to us. This can usually be done at the member information page or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Notification of Changes
- 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 the information. 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 they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not.
