Collection of Personal Information
NESEA collects and retains personal information that you provide to us, such as your name, postal address, phone number, email address, employer, and professional affiliations or credentials, along with transactional information when you participate in NESEA activities, including:
- Joining or renewing as a NESEA member
- Creating a nesea.org website account
- Making a contribution to NESEA
- Registering for a NESEA or BuildingEnergy event
- Submitting a job posting, resume, case study, blog post, or conference session proposal
- Creating a member profile or uploading a photo
- Subscribing to NESEA communications
NESEA may also automatically collect technical information when you visit the nesea.org website, such as the IP address or operating system of your computer or phone.
Sharing of Personal Information
NESEA maintains appropriate safeguards to secure the information we collect, and to ensure the appropriate use of information. NESEA does not share or disclose personal information to third parties, with certain, very limited exceptions. Attendee lists containing limited or no contact information for NESEA and BuildingEnergy events are provided to certain event sponsors, exhibitors, and hosts. When registering for an event, attendees are provided the opportunity to opt-out of the attendee list for that event.
Online transactions are conducted via an industry-standard secure encrypted channel. Information is directly collected through a secure server by our credit card processor, and card numbers submitted online are not accessible to NESEA. Payment information is not retained by our processor once your transaction has been authorized and processed unless you have requested an automatic membership renewal or made a recurring donation.
Opt-out and Communication Preferences
You may choose to not receive email communications by unsubscribing from all further email communications, or just communications of a specific type, by clicking the appropriate unsubscribe link at the bottom of a NESEA email message. You may also opt out of email or any other type of communication by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org, calling us at (413) 774-6051 ext. 19, or mailing a request to NESEA at 50 Miles Street, Greenfield, MA 01301.
Control of Your Information
If at any time you would like to update or request the deletion of your personal information in NESEA’s database, please use the contact information indicated above.
Member Contact Messages
The nesea.org member contact message system is provided as a convenience for NESEA members. Messages are sent to the indicated recipient from the nesea.org website via regular Internet email and are not retained or monitored by NESEA staff. As is the case with regular Internet email, transmitted messages are not secure, so confidential information should not be included in contact messages. Members may opt out of this message system at any time by unchecking the contact option in their account profile or by requesting this using the contact information indicated above.
Website Visitor Tracking
NESEA does not collect personal information in browser cookies, nor do we grant access to tracking information to third parties. We may use a service called Google Analytics to collect information about use of our website. Google Analytics collects anonymous information such as how often people visit this site and what pages they visit. This data is only used internally by NESEA and is not shared with third parties.
Links to Other Websites
The nesea.org website includes links to other websites. We are not responsible for the policies and practices of other organizations, the contents of their websites, or how they use any information that you may provide to them.
