We may also disclose Personal Information and non-Personal Information to companies, agents, contractors, service providers, or others engaged to perform functions on our behalf (such as processing of payments, provision of data storage, hosting of our website, marketing of our products and services, conducting audits, and performing web analytics). We may license third party software to include in or use with the NSG Network, in which case we may disclose Personal Information and/or Non-Personal Information to the licensor.

We may also disclose your Personal Information and non-Personal Information to third parties when we believe, in good faith and in our sole discretion, that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) enforce or apply the terms and conditions of the NSG Network, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (b) comply with legal or regulatory requirements or an enforceable governmental request, (c) protect the rights, property or safety of us, our users or other third parties, (d) prevent a crime or protect national security, or (e) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.

We will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you of such transfer, for example via email or by posting notice on our website.
5. Cookies and Automatic Information Gathering Technologies
Every time you use the NSG Network we collect certain information regarding that use. For example, to improve the NSG Network, we collect how, when, and which parts of the NSG Network or its features you use, which third-party platforms you connect to the NSG Network, and when, how, and what you post to the third-party platforms through the NSG Network. Also, we may use your device’s unique identifier (UDID), media access control address (MAC Address), or other unique identifiers to assist us in collecting and analyzing this data.
To assist us in collecting and storing this information, we may employ a variety of technologies, including "Cookies," local browser storage, and "Web Beacons." A "Cookie" is a small amount of data a website operator, or a third party whose content is embedded in that website, may store in your web browser and that the website operator or, as applicable, the third party, can access when you visit the website. A Cookie may also refer to web-browser-based storage provided by Adobe’s Flash plugin (a "Flash Cookie"). The NSG Network’s Cookies may contain user preferences, unique identifiers, and other non-Personal Information or Personal Information. A "Web Beacon" is a small, usually-transparent image placed on a web page that allows the operator of that image, which may be the operator of the website you visit or a third party, to read or write a Cookie.
More information about managing Cookies is available here. Cookie management tools provided by your browser may not affect Flash Cookies. More information about managing Flash Cookies is available here. To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for your local browser storage, please refer to the end user documentation for your browser.
6. Transparency and Choice
You may request access to your Personal Information by sending an email to email@example.com. We will try to locate and provide you with your Personal Information and give you the opportunity to correct this data, if it is inaccurate, or to delete it, at your request. But, in either case, we may need to retain it for legal reasons or for legitimate business purposes.
We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected, or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backups), or relate to information that is not associated with your Personal Information. In any case, where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.
Please be aware that if you request us to delete your Personal Information, you may not be able to continue to use the NSG Network. Also, even if you request that we delete your Personal Information, we may need to retain certain information for a limited period of time to satisfy our legal, audit and/or dispute resolution requirements.
You can opt out of receiving marketing e-mails from us by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link in the e-mails. Please note that it may take up to ten (10) business days for your opt-out request to be processed. Also, even if you opt out of marketing e-mails, we may continue to send you certain account-related e-mails, such as notices about your account and confirmations of transactions you have requested.
The NSG Network is not generally intended for users under 13 years of age in the United States or users under 16 years of age who are citizens of the UK or the EU. Unless we receive written permission from a parent or guardian in connection with registration for one of our camps, we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from United States users under 13 years of age or users who are citizens of the EU or the UK under 16 years of age. We do not authorize United States users under 13 years of age or citizens of the UK or EU under 16 years of age to use the NSG Network.
8. Information Security
We utilize reasonable information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information against unauthorized access, modification, or destruction. For example, we utilize Secure Socket Layer (SSL), Transport Layer Security (TLS), or similar encryption technology when sensitive data is transmitted over the internet and use firewalls to help prevent external access into our network. However, no data transmission over the Internet and no method of data storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its security.
We restrict access to Personal Information to our employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, improve or support the NSG Network. If we share Personal Information with service providers, we require that they also use reasonable information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information and only use your Personal Information for the purposes for which we share it with them.
9. Your California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about categories of personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared personal information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us using the contact information provided below.
If you are under 18 years of age, reside in California, and have a registered NSG Network account, you have the right to request removal of unwanted data that you publicly post on the NSG Network. To request removal of such data, please contact us using the contact information provided below, and include the email address associated with your account and a statement that you reside in California. We will make sure the data is not publicly displayed on the NSG Network, but please be aware that the data may not be completely or comprehensively removed from our systems.
10. Third Party Websites
Please note that the NSG Network may link or integrate with third-party sites, services or apps. We are not responsible for the privacy or security policies or practices or the content of such third parties. Accordingly, we encourage you to review the privacy and security policies and terms of service of those third parties so that you understand how those websites collect, use, share and protect your information.
We will only retain your information for as long as needed to provide you services. If you wish to delete your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Even if you ask us to delete your account we reserve the right retain and use your information solely as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
