Privacy Policy

Privacy Statement Updated May 25, 2018.

Welcome to the Northeast Human Resources Association (NEHRA).

In Part I of this Privacy Statement we set forth NEHRA’s Privacy Policy as to personal information which we collect online through www.nehra.com or other NEHRA websites which link to this Privacy Statement from their site (collectively, "NEHRA Websites"). 

In Part II of this Privacy Statement we set forth NEHRA’s Privacy Policy as to personal information which we collect other than through NEHRA Websites. 

"Personal information", is any information that enables us to identify you, directly or indirectly, by reference to an identifier such as your name, identification number, location data, online identifier or one or more factors specific to you. Personal information includes "sensitive personal information" and "pseudonymised personal information" but excludes anonymous information or information that has had the identity of an individual permanently removed.

Your use of the NEHRA Website and/or provision of your personal information or sensitive personal information to NEHRA constitutes your consent to the use, storage, processing and transfer of that information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

For the purposes of the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the "GDPR") the data controller is the Northeast Human Resources Association with an office at 490 Virginia Road, Concord, MA 01742. NEHRA is an organization based in the United States.

QUESTIONS

If you have any questions or complaints regarding this Privacy Statement, please contact us at Info@nehra.com.  

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT

We will update this Privacy Statement from time to time, so please check back periodically.

If at any point we decide to use personal information in a manner that is materially different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will endeavor to notify you of such changes (e.g., we will post a revised Privacy Statement with a new effective date, display the word "updated" next to the Privacy Policy link on each page on the NEHRA Websites, or otherwise), prior to implementing them. 

PART I – NEHRA WEBSITES PRIVACY POLICY

Throughout NEHRA Websites, there are forms for visitors to request information, products, and services. We use personal information from these forms to provide the products, promotional materials, or memberships that you request.

Forms on the NEHRA Websites that request financial information do so in order to bill you for products or services ordered. Unique identifiers (specifically, your NEHRA member number) are collected from website visitors to verify the user's identity for access to restricted content or features on the NEHRA Websites.

This Privacy Policy discloses NEHRA’s privacy practices and contains detailed information about the following:

  • What information do we collect?
  • What are "cookies" and how does NERHA use them?
  • Do we share information with third parties?
  • How do we use the information we collect?
  • How can you review and modify your personal information?
  • What is the opt-out policy for NEHRA Websites?
  • Your California privacy rights
  • Your European privacy rights
  • What types of security procedures are in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your information?
  • How do NEHRA Websites use bulletin boards, discussion lists, and moderated chats?

1.     What information do we collect?
NEHRA Websites collect the following personal information about site visitors:

a)    Site Use Information

NEHRA collects technical information relating to each time a visitor comes to a NEHRA Website, including IP address, browser type and version, time zone settings, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform type (e.g. Internet Explorer browser on a Windows platform).

We may also collect information about your visit, including pages you viewed or searched for, page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), methods used to browse away from the page, and any phone number used to call our customer service number.

Gathering this technical information helps us to learn what browsers we need to support and helps us determine what sections of NEHRA Websites are most popular and how many visitors come to our site(s). You do not have to register with NEHRA Websites before we can collect this information.

b)    Information You Give Us

You may provide personal information to us which may include your name, home and/or work email address, postal address, phone number and/or fax number, your employer and job title, demographic information about you including birth year, certification designation, etc., and if you are making a purchase, your credit card information. You are only required to provide such information if you want to take advantage of optional products and services provided through NEHRA Websites.

NEHRA collects personal information in the following ways from different parts of the NEHRA Websites:

  • NEHRA Membership Applications: You are sharing personal information with us when you join NEHRA or renew your NEHRA membership through the NEHRA Websites. NEHRA members will have NEHRA membership log-in credentials which enable members to take advantage of restricted content and features on NEHRA Websites.
  • Other Registration: When registering for specific services we may ask for the same type of personal information. For example, if you subscribe to an e-mail newsletter, we will ask you to provide your e-mail address.
  • Online Purchases: When you make a purchase using the NEHRA Job Board or when you subscribe to a NEHRA publication through the NEHRA websites we may also ask for the same type of personal information. The number and variety of useful services on NEHRA Websites that may require the collection of personal information about you will continue to grow in the future.

2.     What are "cookies" and how does NEHRA use them?

A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a website to the hard drive of your computer. This unique number identifies your web browser to NEHRA computers whenever you visit NEHRA Websites.

The use of cookies is an industry standard, and cookies are currently used on most major websites. Most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can reset your browser to notify you when you have received a cookie. You can also set your browser to refuse to accept cookies altogether.

While NEHRA does not require you to use cookies, keep in mind that certain services will not function properly if you set your browser to refuse all cookies. To help serve you better, NEHRA generally uses cookies to:

  • Identify return visitors. Cookies let us remember your web browser so we can provide personalized member services such as My NEHRA and NEHRA search agents. Cookies also allow us to identify NEHRA members who are returning to the site.
  • Display advertisements. NEHRA uses an outside ad company to display NEHRA-approved ads on our website and other websites. While we use cookies on other parts of our website(s), the cookies received with banner ads are collected by our ad company. These cookies allow NEHRA to manage the delivery of ads.

3.     Do we share information with third parties?

Personal information collected through NEHRA Websites is generally collected and maintained solely by NEHRA or its contracted vendors.

We may share personal information in the following ways:

a)    Information You Give Us

  1. Personal information provided when you register for services or products. When you provide personal information about you on NEHRA Websites to register for a service, buy a product, or take advantage of a promotion NEHRA reserves the right to sell or otherwise provide to selected third parties, mailing/information lists derived from such registrations.

    If you wish to opt out of such list sales/distribution at any time, you may do so by following the directions in Item 6 below. We will not share personal information relating to individuals based in the EU unless you have provided your opt in consent.  
  1. Information provided when joining or renewing membership in NEHRA. If you join NEHRA or renew your membership through the NEHRA Websites, you provide personal information about you on the membership application. NEHRA reserves the right to sell or otherwise provide mailing/information lists concerning members to selected third-parties.

    If you wish to opt out of such list sales/distributions at any time during your NEHRA membership, you may do so by following the directions in Item 6 below. We will not share personal information relating to individuals based in the EU unless you have provided your opt in consent.

    NEHRA does not sell to third-parties, e-mail addresses obtained from member applications or renewals
     (except that NEHRA will rent a member e-mail address if that member has expressly opted in to allow such rentals). 

    Sensitive Personal Information.  NEHRA does not share with third parties, sensitive personal information such as passcodes, social security numbers, credit card numbers, felony conviction information, or health information except as necessary to complete transactions requested by you and under strict confidentiality and security protections; nor does NEHRA publish such sensitive personal information.

b)    Site Use Information

We disclose to third-party sponsors/advertisers aggregate statistics (i.e., impressions and click-throughs on a company's advertisement).

In addition, we may share aggregate website statistics with the media or other third parties. We do not disclose personal information to these sponsors/advertisers or other third parties as part of this process, only information in an aggregate form.

4.     How do we use the information we collect?

We use your personal information according to the terms of the Privacy Policy in effect at the time of our use. We will only process your personal information, including sharing it with third parties, where (1) you have provided your consent which can be withdrawn at any time, (2) the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party (including your membership agreement with us), (3) we are required by law, (4) processing is required to protect your vital interests or those of another person, or (5) processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate commercial interests, provided your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.

We use personal information for the following purposes:

a)    Information You Give Us

We use the personal information you give us:

  1. to carry out our obligations arising from your membership and any other agreement entered into between you and us
  2. to update and renew your membership as required 
  3. to provide you with the information, products and services you request from us 
  4. to arrange and deliver conferences, events and programming relevant to your job and subjects of interest
  5. to respond to your questions and provide related membership or customer services
  6. to improve the NEHRA Websites
  7. to send you NEHRA publications, information about member benefits and special offers, and other information that NEHRA believes is relevant and useful to its members, where you have not opted out of receiving such information 
  8. to send you third party information that NEHRA believes is relevant and useful to you, where you have given your consent
  9. to notify you about changes to your membership or related services or to ask you to provide feedback 
  10. to enable you to partake in a prize draw, competition or complete a survey
  11. to administer and protect our business and websites (including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, system maintenance, support, reporting and hosting of data)
  12. to comply with all applicable laws or legal processes, including providing information on individual users to the appropriate governmental authorities where required by law enforcement or judicial authorities 

a.   in matters involving a danger to personal or public safety, or to protect the rights, property or safety of NEHRA, our members, customers, certificants or others NEHRA may voluntarily provide information to appropriate governmental authorities

b.   in some cases members may receive products or services, which are paid for by their government employer, and as a result of payment by the government employer, the record must be open for public access pursuant to applicable law, such as the Florida Public Records Act, and NEHRA will share such information pursuant to those laws

 

b)    Site Use Information

As mentioned above, NEHRA uses the aggregate, anonymous data collected to let our sponsors/advertisers know the number of impressions or views and the number of "click throughs" on their advertisement(s).

NEHRA also uses this aggregate, anonymous data to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of visitors to NEHRA Websites; to measure user interests regarding specific areas of NEHRA Websites; and to analyze how and where best to use our resources.

Without such data, we would not know which parts of NEHRA Websites are the most popular, and we would not be able to change and update the content and services appropriately.

d)    Exceptions           

On occasion NEHRA collects personal information through NEHRA Websites with the intent to afford a greater degree of privacy for such information than is otherwise set forth in this privacy policy. 

In those relatively rare situations where NEHRA does so it will clearly disclose to you at the time it collects such information, what degree of privacy will be afforded to the personal information collected at such time; and NEHRA will follow a process to assure that the specifically disclosed degree of privacy is in fact afforded to such information. 

For example, NEHRA may collect survey information through a survey where NEHRA's use of any personal information from that survey is more limited than the general NEHRA Privacy Statement would otherwise allow; in such a case, NEHRA will disclose the stricter privacy policy governing that survey information at the time such personal information is collected from the survey respondent.

5.     How can you review and modify your personal information?

You have the following options for modifying or causing to be deleted personal information or demographic information previously provided by you to NEHRA.

8.     Your European Privacy Rights

For European Residents Only. If you are based in the EU, in certain circumstances, you have rights under the GDPR in relation to your personal information.

  • Request access to your personal information.  You may have the right to request access to any personal information we hold about you as well as related information, including the purposes for processing the personal information, the recipients or categories of recipients with whom the personal information has been shared, where possible, the period for which the personal information will be stored, the source of the personal information, and the existence of any automated decision making.
  • Request correction of your personal information. You may have the right to obtain without undue delay the rectification of any inaccurate personal information we hold about you.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. You may have the right to request that personal information held about you is deleted.

  • Request transfer of your personal information. You may have the right to request transfer of personal information directly to a third party where this is technically feasible.

Where you believe that we have not complied with our obligations under this Privacy Policy or European data protection laws, you have the right to make a complaint to an EU Data Protection Authority, such as the UK Information Commissioner's Office.

If you wish to exercise your European data subject rights, you have the following options:

  1. E-mail: info@nehra.com    
  2. Send mail to the following postal address: NEHRA, 490 Virginia Road, Suite 32, Concord MA 01742.
  3. Call: 781-235-2900. 

9.     What kinds of security procedures are in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your information?

NEHRA Websites have security measures equal to or better than those reasonably expected in the industry, such as firewalls, in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of your personal information under our control. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur, we take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences. Certain particularly sensitive information, such as your credit card number, collected for a commercial transaction is encrypted prior to transmission.

You are ultimately responsible for the security of your NEHRA login credentials. You may not share your NEHRA login credentials with colleagues or friends so they can access content or features that are restricted to NEHRA members only. You should log out of your browser at the end of each computer session to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence, especially if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.

10.  How do NEHRA Websites use bulletin boards, discussion lists, and moderated chats?

NEHRA Websites make bulletin boards, discussion lists, and moderated chats available to its members. Any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information, and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. Although users may post messages that will appear on the message boards anonymously, NEHRA does retain a private record of who posts all notes. 

PART II – NEHRA PRIVACY POLICY FOR INFORMATION COLLECTED OTHER THAN THROUGH NEHRA WEBSITES

If you submit personal information to NEHRA through any channel other than NEHRA Websites, the same privacy rules set forth at Part I above for NEHRA Websites will be applied to such personal information you submit through channels other than NEHRA Websites (including without limitation your opt-out rights at Part I, Section 6 above), except as follows:

  1. The "cookies" and other tracking devices used by NEHRA Websites and described in Part I above do not apply to personal information gathered through channels other than NEHRA Websites.
  2. Hardcopy personal information provided to NEHRA which is not converted to electronic media and hosted by NEHRA will be subject to different security procedures than will stored electronic personal information. NEHRA has security measures equal to or better than those reasonably expected in the industry, in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of your hardcopy personal information under our control.
  3. When NEHRA collects personal information through channels other than NEHRA Websites it may in some instances apply a different privacy policy to such information; but where it does so it shall conspicuously disclose to you at the time of collection what privacy policy will apply to such information.  For example, NEHRA may collect survey information through a survey where NEHRA's use of any personal information from that survey is more limited than the general NEHRA Privacy Statement would otherwise allow; in such a case NEHRA will disclose the stricter privacy policy governing that survey information at the time such personal information is collected from the survey respondent.
