Privacy Policy.

Personal data collected through NMSAAM.org. Other than cookies, as described below, the only personal data NMSAAM.org currently collects through its websites is the information you voluntarily give us when you use our sites.

For example, you may use this site to contact NMSAAM.org with questions and comments. When you fill out a form on our websites, you may provide your name and other contact information, including your company’s name, your e-mail address, and your mailing address or the mailing address of your company or other personal information. If you do not wish to fill out all of the information on the form you are not required to do so. Most of our registration forms require only your name and e-mail address. When you submit information to us through NMSAAM.org you will receive confirmation e-mail if you enter a valid e-mail address.

Use of Personal Data Collected Through NMSAAM.org. NMSAAM.org uses the personal data information you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. NMSAAM.org and our affiliates also use this information to help us improve the content and functionality of our websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services. NMSAAM.org and our affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future communications.

Anonymous Data Collected Through NMSAAM.org. In addition to the information you provide when you use our websites, NMSAAM.org uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our websites. For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access our websites, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they view. We also use technology to determine which web browsers our visitors use and the address from which they accessed our sites (for example, if they connected to a NMSAAM.org website by clicking on one of our banner ads).

This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our sites. NMSAAM.org and our affiliates use this anonymous data and share it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of our websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.

Cookies. A cookie is a small piece of information that is sent to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies do not damage your computer and they cannot be used to discover the identity of a user. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. This enables you to decide if you want to accept it or not and whether you are required to accept the cookie to view certain content. NMSAAM.org may use cookies to “persist” a user session — that is, to maintain connection with a user as he or she moves through an application or series of web pages. The purpose of cookies in this context is to remember user inputs. For example, a “shopping cart” application records purchases up until the user reaches checkout. Personalization features also use cookies to identify groups of users and deliver appropriate content and services.

Disclosure of Your Personal Data. NMSAAM.org may share some or all of the personal data collected through this website with our affiliates, who use this data in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Both NMSAAM.org and our affiliates may share personal data collected through its websites with third-party vendors who act for or on behalf of NMSAAM.org or our affiliates (for example, companies that provide support services to us, including data processing services, or that help us market our products and services). These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose. In addition, there may be some other, limited circumstances in which NMSAAM.org or our affiliates may share or transfer the personal data in our databases, for example, to comply with a legal requirement, for the administration of justice, to protect your vital interests, or in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution, or similar event.

While no method of data transmission is guaranteed against unlawful third party interception or other misuse, NMSAAM.org uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure protection of your data.
