Privacy Policies

The Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance (NEPA) provides this website as a public service. NEPA does not collect personal information about visitors to this site unless it is given voluntarily.

Information Collected and Stored Automatically
When you browse the NEPA website, certain information about your visit is gathered automatically. This information does not identify you personally. If you do nothing but browse through the site, read pages, or download information, NEPA automatically compiles and stores only the following types of data about your visit: the date and time you access the NEPA site; the pages you visit on the site; the length of your visit; the Internet domain and server Internet protocol (IP) addresses from which you access the NEPA site; the Internet browser and operating system used to access the site; if you linked to the NEPA site from a search site, the address of that website and the search term you used; the protocol version (HTTP, FTP) you used in accessing the NEPA site; whether you were able to successfully access pages you requested; and if you linked to the NEPA site from another website, the address of that website. This information is gathered to help NEPA make its site more useful to visitors–to determine the information visitors want and the types of technology they use. NEPA does not collect data about individuals when they visit the site. Any data collected is compiled and reviewed in the aggregate.

Information Collected Via Forms
Forms may be provided on the NEPA website to allow users to register online for conferences and events or to gather program information. These forms are always voluntary and are submitted to the NEPA server by the user. The information collected is stored in registration databases used to generate mailings.

If you send email to NEPA staff through the NEPA website, the personal information you provide is used only to respond to your message. NEPA does not disclose personal information outside of the agency without explicit permission.

Links to Other Sites
NEPA provides links or pointers to websites administered by states, public agencies, partners and other organizations for the convenience of visitors to this site. This practice does not constitute NEPA’s endorsement of the content of these websites or of other organizations’ policies or products. Once users follow links or pointers to external sites, they are then subject to the privacy policies of those sites. If you have concerns about the appropriateness of any links or pointers on the NEPA site please contact NEPA.

For site security and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, this organizational computer system employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, deny service, otherwise cause damage, or access non-public information. Unauthorized attempts to upload information or change information are strictly prohibited and may be punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Infrastructure Protection Act of 1996. Information regarding possible violations of law may be provided to law enforcement officials.
