Collection of Information
We collect information, including ‘personal information’, about you as you use the NCS websites and services and interact with NCS. When you submit a comment or question through the NCS Site, or subscribe to NCS communications, we collect information that identifies you as an individual, such as your name, address, email and phone number, in response to your request for information, or action.
When you visit the NCS Site, NCS collects certain information automatically. This includes information about your visit to the NCS Site, existence of cookies, time and duration of use of the NCS Site, IP address (and information related to that IP address), browser information, browser type, device type, type and version of operating system, page(s) of the NCS Sites visited, date and time of visit, your internet service provider, and identity of previous websites visited.
We may also use a small piece of code (sometimes referred to as “1×1 clear pixel,” “web beacon” or “clear GIF”) placed in the pages of the NCS Site to help us gather additional information about which parts of the NCS Site receive the most visitors and other user traffic patterns, to enable us to better administer the site.
Pardot (a SalesForce company) is a marketing automation application that analyzes how visitors use the NCS Site. It helps NCS analyze and identify visitors to the NCS Site, analyze email campaigns, and track website forms. Personal Information is stored in Pardot/SalesForce if you complete a contact/request form or request email communications from NCS.

Use of Information
The information we collect through the NCS Site is generally used to provide you with the requested product or service, and to provide a better service to you.

NCS may anonymize, combine, or aggregate information collected.
We send marketing related communications to individuals who have requested them or to individuals in key roles at current or prospective clients who we believe may be interested in or benefit from our services. Our marketing emails may include pixel tags, cookies or other technologies that report back to us how you interact with the email (e.g., whether an email has been opened or deleted, whether a link was clicked). We use this information for the purpose of understanding our prospective customers and current clients. If you do not wish to receive marketing emails from us, you may click on the “unsubscribe” link embedded in each such email, or you can contact us and ask to be removed from our email marketing list.
