We Do Not Share User Information
This policy addresses collection, use, security and access to information that may be obtained through use of this site. It is our policy that contact information about NPTC members will be collected only to the extent necessary to provide the service or benefit desired and that only appropriate information will be collected.
This contact information comprises the NPTC membership database and is required for access to the members-only protected area of the NPTC website and/or when requesting a particular service, such as online credit card processing, accessing the searchable member database, participating in member polls or surveys, accessing NPTC discussion forums, etc. NPTC member contact information is made available online only to other registered NPTC members via the searchable member database. NPTC may also use contact information to inform users of other products or services that may be available. When possible, NPTC will provide a method to ensure that NPTC member contact information is correct and current.
In addition to the use of contact information to operate the site, anonymous information is also gathered, which may be used by NPTC or shared with third parties. This is information which does not personally identify users, but which may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services NPTC offers. For example, NPTC might tell its advertisers how many users visited a particular advertisement, and for how long, so they can measure whether the advertisement was effective.

NPTC may disclose personal contact information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on NPTC or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of NPTC, the site or the users of NPTC, and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the NPTC site or the public.
The NPTC site may have several necessary service partners who assist in providing the service or product associated with the site. As part of the operations of the site, these companies may have access to user information. These companies may provide routine services, such as credit card processing, or may provide essential elements of the site. These uses of personal information are primary to the operation of the site. These service partners must also adhere to these privacy guidelines, and will not have permission to sell (or make any other use of) personal contact information.
