5. Use of Aggregate Information
We may store information that we collect through log files to create a profile of our users. Log files record internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the Site, track your movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Log file data is not linked to personally identifiable information. A profile may be stored detailing how individual customers use the Site. It is used solely for internal purposes, to help us improve the experience of users of the Site. We may share your profile with third parties who assist us in processing the information, analyzing aggregated information, and optimizing our Site.
6. Disclosure of Personal Information As Required By Law
We will disclose personally identifiable information when required by law, or if we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on us, (b) protect and defend our rights, or (c) protect the rights, property, and other interests of our users or others.
7. Business Transitions
NCGA takes commercially reasonable precautions to protect any personally identifiable information collected through this Site. However, given the nature of the Internet and the fact that network security measures are not infallible, we cannot guarantee the security of your information. When registering for access to a secure area of the Site, we may ask you to select a username and password. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also, remember to sign out of the registered Site and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personally identifiable information and correspondence when accessing your computer.
