This website uses Google Analytics to help analyze how users use the site. Google Analytics uses "cookies," which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information is then used to evaluate visitors' use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity for the National Organization of Research Development Professionals (NORDP). Any information collected will be resident on servers located in the United States and subject to US data protection laws and safeguards.

We will never, (and will not allow any third party to,) use the statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of visitors to our site. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither we nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any Personally Identifiable Information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on our website.

You may choose to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically default to accept them, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Website.

User’s Personal Information: Visitors to our website may be able to register to use our services, attend events, make a purchase, join a community or upload/download information. When you register, you will provide personal information such as name, address, email, telephone number or facsimile number and other relevant information. If you are voluntarily joining NORDP, you have an expectation that we will regularly communicate with you to provide you with membership value. Consequently, we will be using the personal information you provide to communicate important messages to you. Personal information will be retained as long as you voluntarily maintain your membership in NORDP. This does not represent a formal contract since membership is voluntary. If you should terminate your relationship your personal information will be retained for the period stipulated in the NORDP record retention schedule, (such schedule being established on the basis of Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles including statutory requirements, statutes of limitation and limitation of action and audit verification requirements.)

Membership in NORDP is voluntary. There is no statutory requirement to provide this information. You have the right to withdraw consent to the collection of your information and to cancel membership in NORDP at any time. No refund of unexpired membership dues will be provided in the event of such cancellation. You have the right to file a complaint regarding the National Organization of Research Development Professionals website privacy policy and practices with United States Federal Trade Commission, which regulates the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Information maintained is not subject to any automated decision making. Policies for information use are set by the Board of Directors of the National Organization of Research Development Professionals and are subject to change based on the actions of the Board. 

If you are making a purchase: We will request financial information including your credit card number, expiration date, and security code. Any financial information we collect is used only to bill you for your purchase. This information may be forwarded to your credit card provider. Requests for refunds will be considered on a case by case basis, using the appropriate data. We will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to third parties without your permission except to the extent necessary, including: To fulfill your requests, to protect ourselves from liability, to comply with the terms and conditions of our internet host provider or government agency.
