National Academies of Emergency Dispatch (“NAED”) Website Privacy Policy Revised as of October 27, 2008

The website located at www.emergencydispatch.org (the “Website”) is operated by NAED. NAED has created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to the privacy of our visitors and customers. NAED is committed to respecting your privacy and recognizing your need for appropriate protection and management of personally identifiable information you share with us (the phrases “personally identifiable information” and “personal information” mean any information by which you, individually, can be identified, such as your name, address, telephone number, etc.). The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you when you visit our Website how we use such information, and the choices you have regarding our use of such information.

Please note that the practices of NAED, its affiliates, and agents with respect to personal information, are governed by this Privacy Policy as amended from time to time and not the Privacy Policy that was in effect at the time the personal data was collected. NAED is committed to protecting your privacy. NAED reserves the right to change the Privacy Policy from time to time at its sole discretion. The user will not be notified of changes to the Policy. We encourage users to regularly review the NAED's up-to-date Online Privacy Statement. If you have objections to the Privacy Policy, you should not access or use the Site.

A Special Notice about Children

Children (under the age of 18) are not eligible to use the Website unsupervised, and we ask that children do not submit any personal information to us. If you are under the age of 18, you may only use this Website in conjunction with, and under the supervision of, your parents or guardians.

General

In general, you may visit many pages of the Website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit the Web-site and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous unless they voluntarily tell us who they are. Sometimes (such as when you purchase or order a product) we may ask you to provide personal information about yourself. We may also maintain a record of your online purchases. Whether or not you choose to provide the information we request is entirely up to you. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products, or access certain services, offers, and content on the Website.

Personal information on this site is collected by NAED. NAED’s address is 110 South Regent Street, Suite 800, Salt Lake City, UT 84111 USA, and its telephone number is 801-359-6916.

NAED collects and uses your personal information to operate and improve its sites and deliver the services or carry out the transactions you have requested. These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the sites or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and technologies; and displaying content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences.

We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues, and security announcements. We may also occasionally send you product surveys or promotional mailings to inform you of other products or services available from NAED and its affiliates.

Personal information collected on NAED sites and services may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which NAED or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using NAED site or service, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

At some NAED sites, we ask you to provide personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. We may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. If you choose to make a purchase or sign up for a paid subscription service, we will ask for additional information, such as your credit card number and billing address that is used to create a NAED billing account.

We may collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with NAED sites and services. We may also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring Web site addresses.

Sharing of Your Personal Information

Some NAED sites allow you to choose to share your personal information with select NAED partners so that they can contact you about their products, services or offers. NAED does not share your contact information with third parties for marketing purposes.

We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.

We may access and/or disclose your personal information if we believe such action is necessary to: 1) comply with the law or legal process served on NAED; 2) protect and defend the rights or property of NAED (including the enforcement of our agreements); or 3) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of NAED services or members of the public.

We reserve the right to transfer your personal information to a third party in the event of a transfer of all or substantially all of NAED’s assets, provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of this privacy policy.

Links to Other Materials

The Website contains links to other sites where personal information may be collected. NAED has established relationships with various service providers whose services are available to you from the Site or from websites that are linked to the Site. These links are for your convenience. Typically, these providers offer services that NAED customers might find useful. In order to use those services, you may be required to provide personal information to the provider. In such instances, unless expressly provided to the contrary, the collection and use of your personal information will be governed by the privacy policy applicable to that site. That privacy policy should identify the entity that is collecting your personal information.

Security of Your Personal Information

NAED is committed to protecting the security of you personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.

If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always choose to log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.

Finally, we may work with other companies that advertise on NAED sites to place Web beacons on their sites in order to allow us to develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement on a NAED site results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser's site.

Third-Party Hosting

NAED contracts with a third party to maintain and host the Website. Therefore, any information you submit, including personal information, will be placed and stored on a computer server maintained by the third-party host. The third party has agreed to implement technology and security features and strict policy guidelines to safeguard the privacy of your personal information from unauthorized access or improper use.

Site Technologies

NAED does not provide the technologies used to build the Website, and therefore, neither recommends nor endorses the same. Any information regarding identified technologies, including their capabilities, limitations, and applications, should be sought directly from their manufacturers. NAED hereby disclaims any rights to trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, copyrights, patents, domain names, or other intellectual property interests of third parties.
