Privacy Policy


NASPA agrees with the philosophy that an individual has the right to know how their personally identifying data is being used by NASPA.

NASPA maintains industry-standard security of personally identifying data and updates those protocols on a regular basis. Our volunteer leaders are provided with information on data security and privacy on at least an annual basis.

How we use your data

NASPA uses personally identifying data to provide information about the products, programs and services that an individual may be interested in. NASPA uses the information provided in an individual’s profile to customize the information they receive or may be presented with.

NASPA uses publicly available data about institutions to further customize the information an individual may receive or be presented with based on the fact that the individual is an employee of that institution.

NASPA uses data about previous registrations, purchases, downloads, subscriptions, or other transactions to customize the information an individual may receive or be presented with.

NASPA uses data in aggregate to identify trends about groups of individuals and about the industry itself.

When is data shared outside of NASPA staff

When a product, program, or service is being conducted, administered, or coordinated by volunteer leader(s) of NASPA, NASPA will share contact information about the individual and about the individual’s purchase or registration with those volunteers. NASPA will only share the information needed to facilitate the interaction. NASPA will never share financial information such as credit card numbers.

When a product, program, or service is sponsored by a third-party organization, NASPA, with your permission, will share basic contact information (name, job title, institution, and preferred mailing address) with that sponsor. An individual can decline the opportunity to share their information at the time of registration or purchase. We do not share email addresses.

NASPA gathers aggregate statistics about visitors to its website and may provide this information to third parties for analysis. This information does not contain behavioral or identifying information about any individual user.

NASPA uses third party companies to provide delivery of electronic communications which requires provision of individual information. The service agreement with these companies prohibits any other use of this information.

NASPA uses a third party company to provide commenting ability on blog posts. This service allows users to post comments by signing in using an existing Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus or Disqus account. NASPA does not obtain any information about or access to your accounts with these services. For more information about Disqus' privacy policy, please click here.
