Collection of Personal Information
National Physique Committee (NPC) may collect certain personally identifiable information ("personal information") about you when you visit our Website. Examples of personal information we may collect include your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address.
We also automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our Website, including, but not limited to, the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.
Use of Personal Information
NPC will only use your personal information where we have a lawful basis to do so. The following are examples of how we might use your personal information:
- Providing Services: We will use and disclose personal information in such a manner as we believe is reasonably necessary to provide our services.
- Administration: We may use your personal information in order to collect our fees or costs in connection with services to you or to manage your relationship with NPC.
- Managing Client Relationships: We may use personal information to provide NPC members with information on our services and updates that we consider may be relevant, arranging and hosting events, and identifying where we may make improvements in our services.
- Membership: We may use personal information to carry out certain background searches to verify whether or not there are any potential issues that may prevent us from establishing a membership relationship.
We use personal information you provide solely to respond to your inquiry or process an application form you have completed on various sections of our Website.
We typically will not contact you about other matters, unless you specifically request it, nor will we share, rent, or sell your personal information outside NPC, except where we are required to share your information with any third parties who provide services on our behalf.
It is possible, though unlikely, that we might be forced to disclose personal information in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency's request.
We use non-personally identifiable information to analyze site usage (such as aggregated information on the pages visited by our users), which allows us to improve the design and content of our site.
We cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the web or that may be collectable in transit by others, including contractors who provide services to NPC.
We are committed to complying with all applicable privacy laws and regulations.
Third Party Sites
Our Website may contain links to other websites. The data privacy practices of those third-party websites might differ from NPC's. You should consult the other websites' privacy notices for information on their privacy practices as NPC has no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
NPC may post information on our Website about programs and events that are sponsored by or cosponsored by other organizations. If you choose to register through our Website for any of these events, NPC will have no control over the third-party sponsors' use of this information. As for our own use of your registration information, that will be handled by us as if you had registered by telephone or on paper. In other words, the privacy policies applicable to our Website will not apply.
When you visit our Website, we and third parties with whom we have contracted to provide services to NPC may collect "Site Usage Data," which is non-personally identifiable information relating to your use of our Website such as what Website pages you visit. The Website Usage Data could include your address, operating system version, type of computer and browser type. This data could also include demographic data, such as a Website visitor's geographic location. To enhance your experience on our Website, we and our service providers may use "cookies" on our Website.
A "cookie" is a piece of information that a web server may place on your computer when you visit a website. Cookies are commonly used by websites to improve the user experience and have not been known to transmit computer viruses or otherwise harm your computer. Many cookies last only through a single website session or visit. Others may have an expiration date or may remain on your computer until you delete them.

When you visit and interact with our Website, NPC and third parties with whom we have contracted to provide services for us may collect Internet Protocol (IP) addresses (each an "IP Address"). An IP Address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Your IP Address is identified and logged automatically whenever you visit the Website, along with the time(s) of your visit(s), your geographic location and the page(s) that you visited. NPC uses this information to determine the locations of our Website visitors to better understand from where our visitors come. NPC also may use this information to enhance our Website or for other lawful purposes.
Certain pages on our Website contain "web beacons" (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP Address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by the third party.
