* Automatic Information
We may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, if you choose to have an NAHS password remembered when you visit an NAHS web site, Cookies are utilized for this password related functionality. Cookies are pieces of data your web browser stores on your hard drive to enable our systems to recognize you and your browser. Most web browsers automatically accept these cookies, and will also allow you to instruct your browser to prevent the use of cookies. However, if you disable this feature, the described password related functionality and certain other aspects of our web site may not function properly.

* Information You Give Us
We receive and may store any information you enter on our web site or give us in any other way. At times, we specifically ask for information about you when you register for or to use certain services, when you order a product, or when you join the NAHS. We may require certain information -- such as name, Internet address or screen name, billing address, credit card number, etc -- in order to provide that service or product to you.

* Information from Other Sources
For reasons such as improving the personalization of our service, we might receive/collect information about you from other sources and use it to supplement account information.

Does NAHS Share the Information It Receives/Collects?
* NAHS may share your personal information with its affiliates and/or subsidiaries, if any. NAHS may also share the information we collect with NAHS' advertisers and business partners. NAHS is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of our advertisers or business partners and encourages you to read the posted privacy statement and user terms and conditions whenever interacting with, and prior to providing any personal information to, any other web site. 

* NAHS may use reputable third parties to manage activities available on our web sites such as web hosting, database management and order processing, and authentication. These parties may have access to personally identifiable information submitted by Members who participate in those activities. NAHS instructs these third parties to use personally identifiable information only for the specific purpose for which it is collected, and not to sell, market or transfer such information to other entities except as needed to provide the designated services.

* NAHS may post and display certain personally identifiable information about its Members
on our web site.

How Secure Is Information About Me?
NAHS maintains appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personally identifiable information submitted to our web site, and periodically reviews and updates its security measures in light of current technologies. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Although NAHS strives to
protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warranty the security of any information you may transmit to us or from our online products and services. Once we do receive your transmission, however, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. When credit card information is transmitted, industry standard encryption is used.
