Privacy Policy & Terms of Use

NYTC's Commitment to Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online and offline information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To contact us regarding this policy or to remove your information from our database, please email us at info@nytech.org or contact us by telephone at (646) 435-1088 and ask for the Privacy Officer.

This Privacy Policy covers the practices and policies of the New York Technology Council, Inc. ("NYTC"), a trade association for metropolitan New York area technology companies. Our Web site address is www.nytech.org, with a postal address of 330 Madison Avenue, Floor 9, New York, NY 10017.

The Information We Collect and How We Use It

This notice applies to information collected or submitted to NYTC offline or through our Web site. The information we collect falls into three generic categories: 1) information voluntarily submitted, 2) information gathered via electronic means, and 3) information obtained from third parties for membership development purposes.

Information voluntarily submitted to NYTC either online or in writing through membership applications, meeting registration, publication orders, and survey response forms is stored in a central database. The type of personally identifiable information voluntarily submitted on these forms includes name, title, company name, address, phone and fax numbers, email addresses and URLs. We also keep company contact information and payment data to facilitate purchases and membership renewal.

On occasion, NYTC will contract with third parties for co-marketing or other activities related to NYTC's mission. We make these arrangements, which always include a confidentiality agreement, only when information is to be used exclusively to provide services related to NYTC membership.

NYTC registers your Internet Protocol ("IP") address when you visit the nytech.org Web site to help diagnose possible technical problems and to administer Web site quality. The IP address often does not identify an individual, and can be a temporary name by which an individual obtains access to the NYTC Web site. NYTC does not use IP addresses or clickstream data to personally identify users.

NYTC and its agents use log files to determine statistically which areas of our site visitors prefer based on the volume of traffic and to better prepare future site content based on the interests of our users. NYTC does not track the usage patterns of individual users, but rather how well each page on our site performs overall.

NYTC often receives information from third parties about companies, events and opportunities that may benefit NYTC's members. When this type of third-party information is received, we will review it and, in appropriate cases, forward it to members that have opted in to receive such information when signing up for membership.

Use of Cookies

Some parts of the NYTC Web site may also use cookies, though we do not allow any banner ads that collect data from you during your visit. Cookies are bits of information that are stored on your computer when you visit a Web site. They allow the Web site to recognize you when you return and, among other things, load your page more quickly. If you find the NYTC cookie objectionable, you may delete it from your hard drive and set your browser to notify you when a cookie is placed.

Accessing and Updating Your Information

If you have questions about what information we currently hold about you or your organization or would like to make updates or changes, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Opting Out

NYTC members who receive an email newsletter can opt out by following the instructions contained in the newsletter.

Data Security

The security of the information you provide to us is taken very seriously at NYTC, and we take appropriate measures to assure the reliability of member records and to protect them from loss, misuse or alteration. We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect both offline and online. While we take reasonable efforts to ensure the security of information, there is no guarantee that any data transmitted over the Internet is 100% secure; this is the case for any users of any service providers on the Internet.

Sale, Transfer and Assignment

At some point NYTC may wish to sell, transfer or assign its obligations and rights under this policy to a third party. You agree that NYTC may do so, on the condition that NYTC first requires such third party, in writing, to either abide by this Privacy Policy or notify you of the change and allow you to remove your name from its database.

Our Commitment to Children's Privacy

Protecting children on the Internet is very important. For that reason, NYTC never intentionally collects information at our Web site from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our Web site is structured to attract anyone under 13.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

NYTC reserves the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time to clarify or improve our Policy, as long as it does not decrease the protection already provided by these provisions. Changes will be posted to this page and the "Last update" date will reflect the date of the most recent changes. NYTC invites users to review our Privacy Policy whenever they visit the site. Continued use of our site and services after the posting of these changes constitutes acceptance of these changes.
