Online Privacy Practices, Privacy and Data Security

At National Ski Patrol System, Inc. (NSP), your right to privacy and data security is a primary concern. That's why, when you visit www.nsp.org, we help you maintain control over your personal data on the Internet. Below are the guidelines we use for protecting the information you provide us during a visit to our website.

NSP only asks for specific types of personal information

In a few areas on our website and online member support tools, we ask you to provide information that will enhance your site visit, to assist you with membership support issues, or to follow up with you after your visit. It is completely optional for you to participate.

For example, we request information from you when you:

  • Activate your online member account or register as a customer;
  • Place an order;
  • Provide feedback in an online survey;
  • Participate in a promotional offer;
  • Request e-mail notification of your order status; and
  • Change personal information.

In each of the above instances, we may ask for your name, e-mail address, phone number, address, as well as other similar personal information that is needed to register. If we ever ask for significantly different information, we will inform you. In the case of promotional mailing lists, you will be able to "unsubscribe" from these mailings at any time.

NSP only uses your personal information for specific membership service

The information you provide will be kept confidential and used to support your membership with NSP. Among other things, we want to help you quickly find information on NSP and alert you to any special offers, updated information and other new products and services from NSP. Agents or contractors of NSP who have access to your personal information and prospect information are required to keep the information confidential and not use it for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for NSP. NSP may enhance or merge your information collected at its site with data from third parties for purposes of marketing products or services to you.

You can opt out of receiving further marketing from NSP at any time

We will send you information about our various products and services, or other products and services we feel may be of interest to you. Only NSP (or agents working on behalf of NSP and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these direct mailings. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us when you give us your personal information. Or, at any time you can easily opt out of receiving further marketing from NSP by sending an e-mail to Member Services requesting that you name be removed from future promotional mailings.

Internet Commerce

The online catalog is designed to give you options concerning the privacy of your credit card information, name, address, e-mail, and any other information you provide us. NSP is committed to data security with respect to information collected on our site. We offer the industry standard security measures available through your browser called SSL encryption. If at any time you would like to make a purchase, but do not want to provide your credit card information online, you may place an order without credit card information by placing an order through the mail or by fax. It has always been NSP practice to contact customers in the event of a potential problem with your purchase or any normal business communication regarding your purchase.

Customized Experience

New technologies are emerging on the Internet that help us deliver customized visitor experiences. At NSP, we primarily use "cookies" to help us determine which service and support information is appropriate to your machine and to maintain your shopping experience in our online store. Our use of this technology does not mean that we automatically know any information about you. We might be able to ascertain what type of computer you are using, but beyond that, our use of cookies is designed only to provide you with a better experience when using www.nsp.org. NSP has no desire or intent to infringe on your privacy while using the www.nsp.org site.

Third-Party Sites

Please be aware that other web sites that may be accessed through our site may collect personally identifiable information about you. The information practices of those third-party web sites linked to www.nsp.org are not covered by this privacy statement.

You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. While we strive to protect your personal information, NSP cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

NSP's websites contain links to other websites that are not operated by NSP. NSP is not responsible for the privacy practices of the websites that it does not operate.
