WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES NYPA COLLECT? HOW IS THIS INFORMATION USED?
NYPA may collect the following Personally Identifiable Information from you when you use our site and services. “Personally Identifiable Information” means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, home or other physical address, an email address, phone number or other contact information, whether at work or at home.
Information from Online Visitors
NYPA does not collect Personally Identifiable Information from our online visitors other than what is supplied to us on a voluntary basis. You can browse our site without being required to divulge any Personally Identifiably Information to us. Although we collect and maintain aggregate information about usage and visitors browsing our Website, no Personally Identifiably Information is collected as part of this process.
NYPA also automatically receives and records information on our server logs when users access our site, including IP address, cookie information and the page requested. We collect this information to support the functioning of our site, to analyze user experiences on our websites and to improve the structure and ease of use of our websites. We do not use this data to track any personal information. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but some features of our site may not function properly without the information.
Information from NYPA Members
Members may also voluntarily elect to provide NYPA with information about their ethnicity, gender, age, education, family size and general household financial circumstances. At the disclosing Member’s request, NYPA may use this information to evaluate the Member’s eligibility for discounts, benefits and additional services. In addition, NYPA may use this information to compile data about the communities we serve. NYPA may report compiled data and discuss our analysis of the data with NYPA stakeholders, funders and Members, along with various city, state and federal agencies.
THE SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
NYPA protects Personally Identifiable Information and strictly limits access to that information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct usage of Personally Identifiable Information, NYPA uses commercially reasonable efforts to monitor and adjust our physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the Personally Identifiable Information we collect. We prohibit our employees, contractors and agents from accessing Personally Identifiable Information except as necessary to perform their job duties. Any person found violating our standards of security and confidentiality is subject to our disciplinary processes.
NYPA maintains most of the Personally Identifiable Information it collects in electronic formats. Access to these databases is restricted to NYPA staff, consultants and contractors who require access to the information to perform their particular job duties.
Finally, NYPA may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on NYPA; (2) protect and defend NYPA’s rights or property; or (3) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of the NYPA community or the public. If NYPA should ever merge with another entity, we may share your Personally Identifiable Information with the entity with whom we merge.
