Please read this Policy carefully before using our website. This Policy applies only to the information we collect through our website and does not apply to information we may collect from you by other means. By providing information to us through our website, you consent to the terms of this Policy and our collection, use, and disclosure of information as described below.

For the purposes of this Policy, “personal information” is any information relating to an identifiable individual (except as may be exempt under applicable privacy laws). NCC is a business-to-business company and, as such, the personal information we collect from website users is typically limited to the types of information reflected on a business card—name, address, email address, phone number, employer, and position. Specifically, the types of personal information we may collect can be grouped as follows:

  • Contact information – name, email address, address, telephone number, and (in certain circumstances) company name.
  • Employment information – name of your employer and position/title at your employer.
  • Marketing information – details regarding informational and promotional materials you have requested or received from us, your receipt of promotional communications from us, and information on your marketing or communication preferences.
  • Inquiry and communications information – copies of communications and inquiries you have submitted to us, including through email, calls, and features available on our website.
  • Website usage information – details regarding how and when you use our website, including the device used to connect to our website, your IP address, the frequency and duration of your visits, and information about your interaction with our website.
  • Job applicant information – If you apply for a job using our website, contact information, information regarding your qualifications and background, educational information, and any other information you provide as part of your application.

We collect this information from you when you voluntarily fill out forms on our website, subscribe to receive promotional communications from us, download information from our website, communicate with us (including by email, phone, and otherwise), apply for a job, communicate with us through our website, or otherwise provide information to us through our website.

For individuals in Canada, please note that we will obtain your consent prior to collecting, using, or disclosing personal information for any purpose, except where otherwise permitted or required by law. Under Canadian law, consent may be provided orally or in writing or may be implied, such as where you continue to provide personal information to us in the context of our ongoing relationship.
