Any information that you disclose in these forums becomes public information, which could be read, collected, copied, modified, or otherwise used by other users of these forums, operators of these forums (including third parties), search engines such as Google, and others to send you unsolicited messages, identify you, index and display your postings in search results, or for other purposes.

NPX/NCX may use cookies, web beacons, and other electronic tools to collect other information about you.

NPX/NCX may collect and/or log your Internet Protocol address, Internet domain name, the web browser and operating system used to access NPX/NCX websites or applications, the pages or files visited, the time spent in each page or file, and the time and date of each visit or use. NPX/NCX may collect this information automatically as you browse our websites or use our applications through the use of log files, web beacons, or other electronic tools.

NPX/NCX may also use cookies to automatically collect information about your use of our websites. Cookies are text files that are sent from a website via your browser and placed on your computer's hard drive or your mobile device. Thereafter, when you visit that website, a message is sent back to the web server by the browser accessing the website, and this information about your activities is stored in the cookie. The information collected in cookies (e.g., the web pages you visit on the website and navigation patterns, the date and time of your visit, the number of links you click within the site, the functions you use on the site, the databases you view and the searches you request on the site, the data you save on, or download from, the site, the websites you visited immediately before and after visiting the site, and when you open our e-mails or click on any of their links) is used and analyzed to improve our service to you and to personalize your web-browsing experience by providing NPX/NCX with a better understanding of your interests and requirements regarding our websites and applications. Cookies may be linked to your personal information.

We may also use cookies and other electronic tools placed by a third-party service provider to measure the effectiveness of our advertising and other information and to help us understand what product information is of most interest to you and what kinds of advertising offers you like to see. Although the service provider logs the information coming from our websites or applications on our behalf, NPX/NCX controls how that data may and may not be used. If you do not want to assist NPX/NCX in improving our products, offers, and marketing strategy, you can opt out of this website analysis tool with respect to mobile applications and NationalCarrierExchange.com by contacting us at counsel@NationalCarrierExchange.com. Websites of NPX/NCX subsidiaries or divisions may use similar tracking tools for similar internal business purposes only. These websites may not offer this opt-out functionality. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving targeted ads for any other NPX/NCX websites, you may opt out by contacting us at counsel@NationalCarrierExchange.com. Please note this may not opt you out of being served generic advertising. You may also elect not to accept cookies by changing the designated settings on your web or mobile browser. Or you can set your browser to notify you when you are being sent a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. The help function on most browsers contains instructions on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting cookies, or disable cookies entirely. However, disabling cookies in either manner may prevent you from using certain functions and features of websites, and the advertising you receive when you visit the site may not be advertisements tailored to your interests.

We or third-party advertisers or their advertising servers may also place or recognize unique cookies on your computer or use other electronic tools in order to help display advertisements that you see on our websites. Information about your visits to, and activity on, our websites, an IP address, the number of times you have viewed an advertisement, and other such usage information is used, alone or in combination with other information, to display on your computer screen advertisements that may be of particular interest to you. The use and collection of your information by these third-party advertisers and their advertising servers is not covered by this Privacy Statement.

We may disclose information that does not identify any individual (e.g., anonymous, aggregated data) without restriction.

Third-party service providers and suppliers receiving personal information are expected to maintain privacy and security protections that are consistent with NPX/NCX’s privacy and information security policies. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only for the purpose for which it was originally intended or as required or permitted by law. However, unless otherwise dictated by law or agreement, NPX/NCX is not responsible for any improper use by such parties.

We may also disclose your personal information and other information, including across country borders:

or for any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information as otherwise required or permitted by law, and/or with your consent.

Some NPX/NCX websites or services may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company. If you register for or use such websites/services, both NPX/NCX and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the co-branded website/services.

Unless permitted by relevant laws, NPX/NCX will not share, sell, trade, or lease your personal information to or with others except as provided for in this Privacy Statement.

Your decision to provide the personal information that we may request from time to time is voluntary. However, if you do not provide the personal information requested, you may not be able to proceed with the activity or receive the benefit for which the personal information is being requested.

You can unsubscribe or choose not to receive promotional materials from NPX/NCX (or from specific divisions or subsidiaries) by following the specific instructions in the e-mail or other communication you receive or by notifying us via the appropriate method(s) described below depending on which website or service is at issue. It may take a reasonable period of time to process your request, but no longer than 30 days for direct mail and telephone promotions and 10 business days for e-mail promotions. In countries where NPX/NCX is required to do so by law, NPX/NCX will offer you the opportunity to provide opt-in consent before promotional materials are sent, or promotional calls are made, to you. This will not apply to service communications that are considered part of certain NPX/NCX services, which you may receive periodically unless you cancel the applicable service. To opt out of receiving marketing emails from a third-party partner, please follow the unsubscribe instructions in the email you receive from the partner or contact the partner directly. To opt out of having NPX/NCX share your personal information with a third-party partner for their own marketing use, please contact us at counsel@NationalCarrierExchange.com.

NPX/NCX strives to keep your personal information accurate. We have implemented technology, management processes, and policies to maintain data integrity. We will provide you with reasonable access to your personal information in accordance with relevant laws, including by making reasonable efforts to provide you with online access and the opportunity to update your information. To protect your privacy and security, we will take steps to verify your identity before granting access or making changes to your personal information. To request access to your personal information, follow the applicable instructions below depending on which website or service is at issue. While we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request, we also reserve the right to reject such access requests or to impose certain restrictions and requirements on such requests, if required or permitted by applicable law.

We will retain your personal information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to cancel your account, or request that we no longer use your personal information to provide you services, contact us via the applicable information provided below. Even after we cancel your account or cease using your personal information to provide you services, we may still retain, use, and disclose your information as necessary to comply with our legal, regulatory, ethical, or document retention obligations, and any request to delete your personal information is subject to these obligations and restrictions.

In accordance with applicable law, personal and other information covered by this Privacy Statement may be transferred to, and processed and stored in, the United States or any other country in which NPX/NCX or its affiliates, subsidiaries, service providers, business partners, or customers maintain facilities, even if the level of data privacy required in that country is less than that required by the European Union or under the Safe Harbor. By submitting your personal information to NPX/NCX, you consent to such transfers and to the worldwide processing of your personal information.

While the security of your personally identifiable information is of great importance to us no data transmission over the Internet is completely secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the absolute security of any information you transmit. By transmitting any information to us you accept that doing so is at your own risk.

NPX/NCX’s websites may provide links to third-party websites for your convenience and information. If you access those links, you will leave the NPX/NCX website. NPX/NCX does not control these third-party websites or their privacy practices, which may differ from NPX/NCX's. We do not endorse or make any representations about third-party websites. The personal information you choose to provide to unrelated third parties is not covered by the NPX/NCX Privacy Statement.

NPX/NCX has implemented reasonable administrative, technical, and physical measures designed to protect your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, disclosure, use, alteration, or destruction. When you provide us with credit card information via an NPX/NCX website, we will encrypt that information via SSL. If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Please also be careful to avoid “phishing” scams, where someone may send you an e-mail that looks like it is from NPX/NCX asking for your personal information. NPX/NCX will not request your personal information through e-mail. If you have questions regarding our security you can contact us at counsel@NationalCarrierExchange.com.

If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request information regarding the disclosure of your personal information by NPX/NCX to its affiliates and/or third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an e-mail with your first name, last name, mailing address, e-mail address, and telephone number to NPX/NCX's Office of the General Counsel, at counsel@NationalCarrierExchange.com or 650 S Grand Avenue, Suite 1188, Los Angeles, CA 90017.

Our websites or applications may include social media features, such as the Facebook “Like” button, and widgets, such as the ”share this” button.

Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our websites or applications. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy statement of the company providing them.

If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about a page on any NPX/NCX website, we will ask you for your friend's name and e-mail address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time e-mail inviting him or her to visit the site. NPX/NCX does not store this information, except to the extent permitted by law.

If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at counsel@NationalCarrierExchange.com.

When we provide services to our customers, in some instances we process personal information about their clients ("Client Information") on their behalf. In these situations, it is our customers rather than NPX/NCX who decide the reasons for which the Client Information will be processed.
