For the purpose of:
(i) delivering goods and services such as newsletters and merchandise;

(iii) creating and publishing content most relevant to your needs; and
(iv) operating, monitoring and improving the user experience on our Site or other NDI platform;
NDI collects Personal Information and General Information (as defined below) both directly and indirectly through outside companies or individuals (“Third-Party Service Providers”).
Personal Information. We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you or allows us to contact you. Personal Information collected by NDI often is limited to e-mail address, home address and phone number, but may include other information, such as a credit card number, when needed to provide a service you requested. Your Personal Information will not be publicly available to other users through the Site or any NDI platform.
General Information. When you visit, access and/or use the Site, we may also collect additional information either directly or through Third-Party Service Providers that does not personally identify you (“General Information”). General Information may include your IP address, Internet service provider, browser type and language, as well as other information automatically collected using technical methods, including but not limited to cookies and pixel tags. We may, in an effort to better understand visitors to our Site and platforms and how they use our products and services, analyze General Information in aggregate form.
Disclosure of Personal Information
NDI may disclose your personal 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 NDI or the Site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of NDI, or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of NDI employees, students, users of NDI products or services, or members of the public.
Control of your Personal Information
When you register, or otherwise give us personal information, NDI will not share that information with third parties without your permission, other than for the limited exceptions listed. It will only be used for the purposes stated herein.
Third-Party Service Providers
We may maintain an NDI page on Facebook or other social media forum, including, without limitation, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter (collectively, “NDI Forums”). If you post comments or other content (“User Content”) on the NDI Facebook page or other NDI Forum, NDI may use, edit, delete or otherwise distribute such User Content, including posting on our Site. NDI may also collect any Personal Information associated with your posting on NDI Forums. As with other Third-Party Sites, NDI expressly does not endorse and is not responsible for the privacy practices of NDI Forums, although we may have a presence on them.
Protection of Children’s Personal Information
In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and NDI’s policy, NDI does not knowingly collect or share Personal Information from children under the age of 13. We encourage parents and legal guardians to supervise their children’s on-line activities and use a parental control tool to prevent children from disclosing Personal Information without a responsible adult’s consent. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided Personal Information without the consent of a parent or guardian, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. After verification of the information, we will delete the information from our records.
If you choose to receive e-mails from NDI, we may send you e-mails announcing events or describing special offers or services. At any time, if you do not want to receive future e-mails from us, please let us know by e-mailing to: email@example.com.
