Effective as of November 2013
In general, you can visit our Website without having to reveal any PII about yourself. We may, however, collect certain technical information from you (e.g., user Internet protocol addresses and domain names) to help diagnose problems with our servers, analyze the Website’s usage trends, track user movements on the Website, and to otherwise manage and monitor the Website. We may also share statistical or aggregated non-personal information about our users with NACUA’s business partners and other third-parties. This data is used to customize our Website content to deliver a better experience to our users. We also note that certain users are required to provide other PII in order to gain access to portions of the Website which require user identification and password log-in credentials.
We collect PII from you when you seek to access certain portions of the Website or register for particular events or to make membership updates. Under such circumstances, we collect the following information from you:
- Birth date
- Biographical information
- Date that you began the practice of higher education law
- Certain information upon registration to attend any NACUA meeting (i.e., dietary restrictions and emergency contact information)
HOW WE USE AND SHARE PII
Once collected, we may use your PII in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to the following:
- To provide member communications such as invoice reminders, order confirmations, program registrations, and member messages
- To answer your emails or online requests
- To deliver and process surveys
- To personalize and improve the usability of the Website
- To fulfill and/or deliver NACUA products and services
- To provide (for members only) membership directories and registration lists

METHODS OF COLLECTING INFORMATION
STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO-NOT-TRACK DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENT
NACUA also may use certain methods and technologies to collect PII relating to each user’s online activities over time (i.e., through more than one visit to the Website) and across thirdparty websites or online services (i.e., through NACUA’s receipt of PII from other data sources). Any user who wishes to opt out of such PII collection may contact us by email, phone or mail per the contact information listed below in the section titled “CORRECTING, REMOVING OR UPDATING YOUR PII”.
SHARING YOUR PII WHEN LEGALLY NECESSARY OR TO PROTECT NACUA’S INTERESTS
In addition to the other reasons for disclosure referenced herein, NACUA may disclose your PII upon a good-faith belief, as determined by NACUA in its sole and absolute discretion, that such action is or would be necessary to: (a) conform to any actual or potential legal obligation, such as complying with legal process served on NACUA; (b) protect and defend the rights, property or interests of NACUA; or (c) protect the safety, property or rights of our users, NACUA personnel or members of the general the public.
SHARING YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS
Your email address will only be used by NACUA staff. We do not sell or rent email addresses to anyone outside of NACUA. NACUA will also not offer email addresses to unrelated third-parties.
The PII of registrants of NACUA’s live meetings may be shared with third-party sponsors of these meetings for promotional purposes. This information provided will contain the name, title, institution, and mailing address of all meeting attendees. These lists will be available in hard copy to attendees at the meetings upon request. NACUA sells member mailing information upon request to certain organizations and entities and all requests go through an internal approval process. Only a member’s name, title, institution, and mailing address are included on these lists. Email addresses are not included. Any members may remove themselves from this mailing list by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
NACUA has industry standard security measures or safeguards in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under NACUA’s control. Although NACUA has endeavored to create a secure and reliable Website, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via the Internet cannot be guaranteed.
CORRECTING, REMOVING OR UPDATING YOUR PII
You may contact us to correct, modify, or delete the PII you provide to NACUA through the Website, namely, your name, e-mail address, phone number, or address, by emailing membership at email@example.com or calling us at (202) 833-8390. Moreover, when you cease to use NACUA’s services or no longer wish to be included in any NACUA database accessible from the Website, you may contact NACUA to request removal of your information from our database(s) at the following address: National Association of College and University Attorneys, One Dupont Circle, Suite 620, Washington, DC, 20036. In the event that NACUA receives such a request or change, NACUA may require you to confirm or verify any change to your record. Please note, however, that the collection and uses of certain PII is necessary to 4 provide certain products and services through the Website and the deletion of such necessary information, e.g., an e-mail address, may render a particular service or NACUA’s ability to provide it inoperable.
NACUA cares about the safety of children on its Website and encourages parents and guardians to monitor their children’s use of the Internet. Although the Website is suitable for a general audience, the Website is intended for use only by users who are over 18 years of age. Accordingly, NACUA does not knowingly solicit PII from children or send them requests for personal information.
