NationalField, LLC (“NationalField”) operates several websites including NationalField.com. It is NationalField’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, NationalField collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. NationalField’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how NationalField’s visitors use its website. From time to time, NationalField may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. NationalField also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. NationalField does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to NationalField’s websites choose to interact with NationalField in ways that require NationalField to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that NationalField gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at NationalField to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with NationalField are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, NationalField collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with NationalField. NationalField does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
NationalField may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, NationalField may monitor the most active accounts on the nationalfield.com site or use spam screened by our servers to help identify spam. NationalField may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, NationalField does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
NationalField discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on NationalField’s behalf or to provide services available at NationalField’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using NationalField’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, NationalField discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when NationalField believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of NationalField, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an NationalField website and have supplied your email address, NationalField may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with NationalField and our products. We primarily use our website, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. NationalField takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally identifying information.
