Changes to Privacy Policy

NASPO typically collects two kinds of information about individuals: (a) information that individuals provide that personally identifies them; and (b) information that does not personally identify an individual that NASPO automatically collects when individuals visit the NASPO Sites or that individuals provide to NASPO.

(1) Personal Information/Personally Identifiable Information (PII): As a general policy, NASPO does not automatically collect Personal Information when visiting the website. Personal Information means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. Specifically, Personal Information consists of individual’s name, postal address, email address, date of birth, driver’s license number, financial account information, preferences, interests, favorites, or other similar information. NASPO may request, collect, or otherwise provide individuals with an opportunity to submit Personal Information in connection with certain activities on the NASPO website, including but not limited to:

  • Registration screens and online forms
  • Participation in a survey or questionnaire
  • Membership applications
  • Participation in the NASPO Network or similar NASPO provided on-line service, community or message board
  • Participation in NASPO provided or sponsored events and training

This definition of “Personal Information” means personally identifiable information and includes any information that may be used to specifically identify or contact you, such as your name, address (mailing or email), phone number, etc.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others.

(2) Non-Personal Information: Non-personal information is any information that does not personally identify you. Non-personal information can include certain personal information that has been de-identified; that is, information that has been rendered anonymous. NASPO may obtain non-personal information about members from information provided to NASPO, either separately or together with Personal Information. NASPO also automatically collects certain non-personal information from individuals when accessing the website. This information can include, among other things, IP addresses, the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer, Safari, etc.), the third-party website from which your visit originated, the operating system you are using, the search terms you use on our website, the specific web pages you visit, and the duration of your visits.
