NIS keeps track of the Websites and pages our customers visit within NIS, in order to determine what NIS services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within NIS to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
NIS Websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on NIS or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of NIS; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of NIS or the public.
The NIS Website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize NIS pages, or register with NIS site or services, a cookie helps NIS to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as addresses, phone number, email addresses and so on. When you return to the same NIS Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the NIS features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the NIS services or websites you visit.
Do Not Track
NIS does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals or mechanisms.
Other Third Party Tracking Technologies
Our third party partners employ images and scripts that help them better manage content on our site. They do not tie the information gathered to our users’ personally identifiable information.
Social Media Widgets
From time to time, NIS may post customer testimonials/comments/reviews on our web site which may contain personally identifiable information. We do obtain the customer’s consent via email prior to posting the testimonial to post their name along with their testimonial.
Our Website offers publicly accessible blogs or community forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. NIS reserves the right to delete, remove or exclude any listing or information, in its sole discretion, that does not meet its intent and guidelines for the services offered on the website. To request removal of your personally identifiable information from our blog or community forum, contact us at CM@NISBenefits.com. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personally identifiable information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
