COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION
We may collect and use your personal and other information for research, public service, or teaching programs, for administrative purposes, to administer services, for future communication, or to improve the user experience of or troubleshoot issues with our site. We define the term “personal information” to mean any information that we directly associate with, or use to identify, a specific person. This may include information such as your name, phone number, address, social security or tax identification number, email address, a user name or other online registration information, and a financial account or credit card number.

Some personal information, such as credit card account information, may be requested for purchases or enrollment. Examples of other information that we automatically collect include IP addresses and browser and computer types.
DISCLOSURE OF COLLECTED INFORMATION
We may enter into relationships with third parties that provide services (e.g., credit card processing, website enhancements, insurance, and transportation). In such circumstance, we disclose personal information that is necessary for such service providers to perform such services.
We may disclose your personal information to legal, government, regulatory, or accrediting authorities; in response to subpoenas, court orders, or when otherwise required by law; to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; if we determine disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action against illegal, illicit, or dangerous activities; or if we determine its disclosure is necessary in an emergency.

HOW WE RESPOND TO DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
NPU's website is not intended for children under the age of 13 and there are no areas specifically set aside for children under age 13. Nonetheless, we recognize that the NPU's website may be of general interest to all audiences and we therefore encourage parents to assist their children if they intend to explore our website.
ACCESS TO AND RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
You may make changes to some of your personal information through the applicable user portal. We may keep a record of changes (including deletions) and disclose them for lawful purposes. We keep your personal information for as long as we think is necessary or advisable, and we reserve the right to retain it to the full extent not prohibited by law. If you are an applicant or student, you may also review your personal information that is readily accessible or request that it be updated by contacting Student Services.
SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use various physical, electronic, and procedural measures designed to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, disclosure, or misuse. However, because no data security systems are completely secure, we do not warrant that any personal information that you provide to us will be secure or safe from unauthorized access. If you provide any personal information to us, you do so at your own risk.
