Personally Identifiable Information
NGCP Sites and Services use and gather data, some of which is defined as Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”). PII is considered any information about an individual that can be used to recognize, identify or contact that individual. PII does not include most business contact information, or other publicly available information. Providers may register groups of users, such as employees of a company, in order for those users to participate in the Services.
If you choose to create an account on a NGCP Site, we will ask for certain information enabling the creation of that account, such as a username and password. If you make a donation to, or sign up to volunteer with, an organization listed on a NGCP Site, we will ask for certain information enabling us to process, receive, and disburse that donation or track the volunteer activity. We will share certain personal information with the organization.
Log Data, Cookies, and Activity Tracking Technologies
NGCP collects certain information from visitors to the Sites and users of the Services, such as Internet addresses, browser types, referring domains, time stamps (time page accessed as well as time spent per web page), as well as the specific pages the visitor has requested. This information is logged for marketing purposes and to help diagnose technical problems and administer the Site and the Services in order to constantly improve the quality of the Services. We may also track and analyze non-identifying activity and aggregate usage-and-volume statistical information from visitors and users, and provide such information to third parties. We do not link this automatically collected data to other information we collect about you.
We, NGCP, and our affiliates, or website analytics or service providers use technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts, to analyze trends, administer the website, tracking users’ movements around the website, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
