Information we collect

When you browse and do not interact with the site for any online service from the NGHA, you browse anonymously. Personally identifiable information--such as your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address--is not collected as you browse.

When you become a registered user on our site or choose to interact with our site in other ways, such as subscribing to the MNGHA publications, participating in online surveys, submitting questions or comments or requesting information or materials, we will collect certain personal information from you. The type of personal information collected will vary. However, it may include name, address, phone number, birth date, billing, delivery information, e-mail address, and other demographic information. The type of service that you seek will determine the personal information that is collected. For a listing of the exact kind of personal information that will be collected from you, please refer to the relevant online form.

Tracking activity on our website

We track how our site is used by both anonymous visitors and visitors who interact with the site. One way we track is by using cookies. A cookie is a small file or string of text on the site user's computer that is used to aid Web navigation. Two types of cookies are commonly used. A session cookie is created by a Web site when that Web site is accessed; that type of cookie is automatically deleted by closing the Web browser. A persistent cookie is a cookie that is stored on the hard drive of the user’s computer for a period of time chosen by the website that set the cookie, usually for a number of years, unless the user deletes it manually. This policy distinguishes between short-lived cookies and long-lasting cookies. Short-lived cookies include all session cookies and those persistent cookies that are set to be stored for no more than one week. The MNGHA-related websites may at times require users to accept short-lived cookies for the Web sites to function correctly. Long-lasting cookies may be used on the site to track visitor practices to help determine that site features and services are most important and guide editorial direction. Other long-lasting cookies may make it possible for the user to access the site without requiring entry of a user name or password, allow the user to view different restricted areas of the site without reregistering, allow the user to personalize the site for future use, and provide other features and benefits. Users who do not desire the functionality created by the long-lasting cookie should have the option to disable the long-lasting cookie function by disabling the long-lasting cookie function on their Web browser. Cookies are required for the Members-Only of the Web site. Cookies are essential for site administration and security.

This site uses Google Analytics to prepare content reports that help to learn how visitors interact with the website and the pages without collecting personally identifiable information.

Information security:

The NGHA implements security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data. We restrict access to personal information to the MNGHA’s business partners who may need to know that information to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

Site security features

User ID and password

Many areas of the site require using a user ID and password as an additional security measure that helps protect your information. This allows the MNGHA to verify who you are, thereby allowing you access to your account information and preventing unauthorized access.

SSL technology and how you benefit from it

The MNGHA realizes the importance of security, so we've taken a number of steps to enhance the protection of information sent to or from NGHA over the Internet. First, we require that a secure session be established using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This is done any time you supply or access information in one of our secure online areas.

Changes to the Internet Privacy Statement

As our organization, membership, and benefits change from time to time, this Internet Privacy Statement is also expected to change. We reserve the right to amend the Internet Privacy Statement at any time, for any reason. We will post a notice that this Internet Privacy Statement has been amended by revising the last updated date at the top of this page. The NGHA regularly reviews its compliance with this Internet Privacy Statement. Please feel free to direct any questions or concerns regarding this Internet Privacy Statement or the MNGHA’s treatment of personal information by sending us an e-mail.
