Online Privacy Statement
Last Updated May 2018
This policy applies to your use of the http://www.neuropoint.org website (the “Site”), which is operated by or on behalf of NPA. This policy does not apply to your use of other websites to which this Site may link. This policy covers only information collected on this Site and does not cover any information collected offline by us.
Most data NPA collects are used only to help NPA better serve its members, clients and the neurosurgical community. It is our policy to collect and store only personal information that our members and visitors knowingly provide.
From General Users. NPA does not collect personal information from users browsing this Site, except through specific feedback forms. Completion of these forms is optional. By submitting a feedback form or otherwise submitting feedback (including but not limited to requests for quotes, remarks, ideas, or suggestions for improving or changing the Site or Site content) you automatically grant to NPA a royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual and irrevocable license to use or otherwise incorporate the feedback into the Site or in our services. Users of the public areas of the Site browse anonymously. Only aggregate data — such as the number of hits per page — are collected. Aggregate data are only used for internal and marketing purposes and do not provide any personally identifying information.
Retaining Personal Information
NPA retains personal information regarding project participants indefinitely and personal customer data for at least five years as dictated by business and legal requirements.
Links to Other Sites
Users will find content on this Site that link to the sites of organizations who have resources for the purposes of education and information in connection with NPA. We do not control the contents or links that appear on these sites. In addition, these sites or services, including their contents and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies, or no policy (policies) at all. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party sites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.
From time to time this Site requests information from users by way of surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary, and the user has a choice whether or not to disclose information. Information requested may include contact information and demographic information. Survey information may be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction level associated with the site, with NPA’s services, or with issues affecting the neurosurgery community.
This Site and the information it contains are provided as a service by NPA. This system is monitored to ensure proper operation, to verify the functioning of applicable security features, and for comparable purposes. Anyone using this system expressly consents to such monitoring. Unauthorized attempts to modify any information stored on this system, to defeat or circumvent security features, or to utilize this system for other than its intended purposes are prohibited and may result in criminal prosecution.
No website is 100 percent secure. You can usually tell whether encryption is being used by noting the “locked” or other status indicator on the browser you are using. If the browser you are using does not indicate that the session is secure (e.g., by displaying a lock, a key or similar icon), you should assume that the connection is not secure and that third parties will receive the information shared by you and us during that part of the session.
Subject to the Data Subject Rights section below with respect to data subjects to which the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) applies, if you are visiting the Site from outside of the U.S., your connection may be through and to servers located in the U.S., your registration, entries, order or other use of the Site may be fully processed in and from the U.S., and all information you provide may be processed and maintained in our servers and internal system located within the U.S. By using the Site, you authorize the export of personal information to the U.S. and its storage and use as specified herein when you provide such information to us.
Limitations of Liability
NPA makes no claims, promises or guarantees about the accuracy, completeness or adequacy of the contents of its Site, and expressly disclaims liability for errors and omissions in the contents of this Site. No warranty of any kind, implied, expressed or statutory, including but not limited to the warranties of non-infringement, title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and freedom from computer virus, is given with respect to the contents of this website or its hyperlinks to other Internet resources. Reference in this website to any specific commercial products, processes or services, or the use of any trade, firm or corporation name is for the information and convenience of the public and does not constitute endorsement or recommendation by NPA.

Data Subject Rights
The GDPR and other countries’ privacy laws provide certain rights for data subjects. A good explanation of them (in English) is available on the website of the United Kingdom’s Information Commissioner’s Office.
If you wish to confirm that NPA is processing your personal data, or to have access to the personal data that NPA may have about you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may also request information about: the purpose of the processing; the categories of personal data concerned; who else outside NPA might have received the data from NPA; what the source of the information was (if you didn’t provide it directly to NPA); and how long it will be stored. You have a right to correct (rectify) the record of your personal data maintained by NPA if it is inaccurate. You may request that NPA erase that data or cease processing it, subject to certain exceptions. You may also request that NPA cease using your data for direct marketing purposes. In many countries, you have a right to lodge a complaint with the appropriate data protection authority if you have concerns about how NPA processes your personal data. When technically feasible, NPA will—at your request—provide your personal data to you or transmit it directly to another controller.
Reasonable access to your personal data will be provided at no cost to NPA’s customers and others upon request made to NPA at email@example.com. If access cannot be provided within a reasonable time frame, NPA will provide you with a date when the information will be provided. If for some reason access is denied, NPA will provide an explanation as to why access has been denied.
