What Information Does CSNA Collect?Most data CSNA collects are used only to help CSNA better serve its members. It is our general policy to collect and store only personal information that our members and visitors knowingly provide. If our privacy policies change, we will notify all users by e-mail or a special announcement placed on the website.
From General Users. CSNA does not collect any personal information from users browsing its website. Users to the public areas of CSNA's website browse anonymously. Only aggregate data -- such as the number of hits per page -- are collected. Aggregate data are only used for internal and marketing purposes and do not provide any personally identifying information.
From CSNA Members, Conference Registrants, and Other Customers. To gain access to Members Only resources and personalization features on the CSNA website, members and other users are asked to register and provide some limited information. These data are submitted voluntarily.
What Information Does CSNA Collect from Children?While certain portions of CSNA's website may include content suitable for children under the age of 13 (individually a "Child" and collectively "Children") to learn about nutrition, CSNA does not knowingly collect any personal information about Children. Children can surf CSNA's website and view content without any personal information being collected. If CSNA becomes aware that a Child has entered additional personal information in the feedback form, such as a first and last name and/or an email address, such information is deleted from CSNA's system. If CSNA becomes aware that it has inadvertently collected any personal information from a Child in any other fashion, the information will be deleted from CSNA's system as soon as practicable.
