This policy covers the treatment of all personal information that North Los Angeles County Regional Center (NLACRC) collects when you visit our Web site.

This policy tells you how we protect the personal information that you supply voluntarily. Please read this policy carefully.

Personal Information Collection and Use
In general, you can visit the NLACRC Web site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.

Personally Identifiable Information
The choice of whether to and how much personally identifiable information you provide to NLACRC is left completely to you and is voluntary. There are times when we may need information from you, such as your name, mailing address or e-mail address. You will be asked to supply that information voluntarily. Some examples of when we may need information are if you choose to register for a conference online or submit an application or other forms. Except when required to do so by law, we do not share any of the personal information you provide to us with any third party other than service providers of ours who assist us in providing the information and/or services we are providing to you and who need to know the information in order to verify or fulfill your transactions with us, in accordance with our agreement with those service providers, which agreements state that the service provider agrees to comply with our privacy standards as described in this privacy policy. We will not sell, rent, lend or give your personally identifiable information to or share it with any other company or third party agency, except as permitted or required by law.

NLACRC maintains physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard your nonpublic, personally identifiable information. This includes, among other things, using encryption technology.

When NLACRC receives information about your session or about you, we may use it as part of aggregated statistics for research or to improve our site. In general, IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer) are logged to track a user’s session while the user remains anonymous. This data is analyzed for certain trends and statistics, such as which parts of our site users are visiting and how long they spend there. This anonymous information about your session or about you may be collected using technology such as “cookies”.
