What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?
Do you collect IP addresses?
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of
numbers, that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a
visitor requests a page from any Web site within the NASACO Network, our Web
servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address. The
domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP
address from which you have accessed our Sites. We use this information to
examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the NASACO
Network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. We do not collect and
evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our Web servers do not
automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.
What are cookies?
From time to time, NASACO or its advertisers may send a "cookie" to your
computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet
browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie
can't read data off of your computer hard disk or read cookie files created by
which areas of NASACO's Network you have visited or customized, so the next time
you visit, those pages may be readily accessible. Our advertisers may also use
cookies to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. Our
advertisers and we may use this information to better personalize the content,
banners, and promotions that you see on our Site. You can choose whether to
accept cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. You can reset
your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a

If you are purchasing something on the NASACO Network, we, and any third party

your IP address internally and share it with third parties.
When you sign up for a NASACO e-mail newsletter, you are given the opportunity
to sign up for targeted third-party mailings. Whether or not you want to receive
these announcements is your choice. If you choose to receive an announcement
from a specific distribution list, you will receive commercial messages from
independent third parties that have contracted with NASACO to send messages to
the list. You may stop the arrival of these announcement lists at any time by
removing your e-mail address from the list by forwarding the announcement list

What else should I know about my privacy when online?
The NASACO Network contains many hyperlinks to third party Web sites. The NASACO
Network also contains advertisements of third parties. NASACO is not responsible
for the privacy practices or the content of such third party Web sites or
advertisers. NASACO does not share any of the individual personal information
you provide NASACO with the third parties to which NASACO links, except as
aggregate data with such third parties (such as how many people use our Site).
If you use NASACO's discussion threads, you should be aware that any personally
identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by
other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages.
We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to
submit in these discussion threads. In order to avoid your e-mail address or
other personal information from being gathered and used by others for
inappropriate or harmful purposes, NASACO advises that you should be cautious
about posting a real e-mail address or other personal information to newsgroups,
chats, or other public forums.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information
online - for example through e-mail, discussion lists, or elsewhere - that
information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal
information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited
messages from other parties in return.
Certain NASACO media properties use a shopping cart feature that safeguards this
information by using industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encrypted
servers. SSL codes the information transferred between you and the server,
rendering it unreadable to anyone trying to intercept the information. Other
NASACO media properties do not use SSL and thereby do not offer a secure coded
way to transfer information.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your
personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
We are always seeking to improve our network of Web sites and our business. In
accomplishing these objectives, we may sell a company, assets or websites or one
or more of the companies in our corporate family may merge with, or be acquired
by, another company. In connection with the foregoing, we may transfer some or
all of your information in order that the service being provided to you may
continue or for other business purposes.
Your Consent To This Agreement
By using the NASACO Network, you consent to the collection and use of
information by NASACO as specified above. We reserve the right to modify this
this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we
use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
