Privacy & User Consent

The National Collegiate Honors Council respects the privacy of its members and other visitors to its website. To protect online privacy, the NCHC has implemented the following policy.

Use of Information

NCHC Member Services

Most data collected by the NCHC are used to help us better serve our members. We do not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by joining as a member, sending us e-mail, participating in a survey, completing an online form, etc. To gain access to members-only resources, members and other users are asked to provide some limited information. We use your information to provide you with personalized service, such as sending e-mail alerts, answering your requests, and processing membership applications and purchases.

The NCHC may also use your information to track email and website usage, and analyze aggregated data. This lets us see which of our features are most useful so we can better serve our users' needs. Members may choose to manage their email preferences at any time, which may result in ceasing all email communication with the NCHC aside from transaction processing. 

The association management system used by the NCHC, YourMembership.com, has its own privacy policy statement that can be viewed here.

Disclosure to Third Parties

The NCHC makes member contact information accessible to other members through the members-only login portal. Contact information may be provided to committees or regional honors councils upon request. In addition, the NCHC provides limited data to third party sponsors of its Annual Conference to provide opportunities or benefits for our members and attendees. These limited data include names, email addresses, institution names, and job positions. Users may request the NCHC refrain from disclosing this data during the conference registration process; an opt-out box will appear on each conference registration form. The NCHC does not sell or rent email lists to anyone outside our organization.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file stored by your browser that allows the website to “remember” your preferences (such as calendar settings and site bookmarks) on the site from visit to visit, or to maintain your “logged in” status when visiting protected areas. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. The NCHC uses cookies or similar technologies to analyze trends, to provide services to our users, administer the website, track users’ movements around the website, and to gather information about our user base as a whole (location, browser, etc.) You can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level, but if you choose to disable cookies, it may limit your use of certain features or functions on our website or service. We retain cookies for as long as needed for their purpose.

Our platform may use several different categories of cookies:

·       Necessary for the operation of the site: Certain cookies are necessary for the operation of the site. For example, certain cookies are used to help keep track of your session status. This makes it possible for you to stay logged into the site as you move from page to page.

·       Tracking: We use cookies and other tracking technologies to track what pages you visit and how long you stay on a page. We use this information to measure how our site is used and to improve our product. We also use this information to track what users have received administrative notices so we can only show these notices to each user once.

 

Log Files

Like most standard website servers we use website statistic packages such as Google Analytics to analyze trends in how our website is accessed and utilized. Information monitored includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, geographic location of visitors (country, city), browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, time spent on pages, and keywords used to find our site via search engines. This information is anonymous and cannot be directly linked to individual users. We may use it to identify high-use or low-use areas of the site, pinpoint problem areas of the site, analyze broad demographic trends in our visitors, and make decisions about how to make it easier for people to find and navigate our website.

Links

This website may contain links to external sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.

Security

This website takes every precaution to protect our users' personal information. Whenever users submit personal information (such as contact info or credit card info) via online forms, registration, or online purchase, upon submission that information is encrypted via the highest level of SSL (Secured Sockets Layer) available. Servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment. Under no circumstances are credit card numbers permanently stored on our website servers.

Non-secured Communications

Posts to discussion forums, discussion boards, and comments to blogs are viewable by other users. When these posts are not in a password protected area, they may be viewable by the general public. Please be aware of this when posting personal information in these areas.

Contact Information

If users have any questions or suggestions regarding our privacy policy, please contact us at nchc@unl.edu or 402-472-9150.
