We collect only the information volunteered by the visitor, such as preferences, survey information, and/or site registrations, which includes the following information if provided: name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number.

The information we collect is used to customize the content and/or layout of our page for each individual visitor.  The information may be used by us to contact visitors for marketing purposes or shared with other reputable organizations to help them contact consumers for marketing purposes.  Information will be disclosed when legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our website and applicable laws, or to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our website.  

If you supply us with your email address and/or mailing address online, you may receive periodic correspondence from us with information about new products and services or upcoming events.  From time to time, we also make the email addresses and/or mailing addresses of those who access our website available to other reputable organizations whose products or services we think you might find interesting.  Users may contact NSTA at or 1.800.222.6782 to express their preferences if they determine later that they do not wish to have the above information shared.
