The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) is committed to not disclosing your personal information to third parties without your consent, subject to the limited circumstances described below.
User choice regarding collection, use, and distribution of personal information
You may choose not to provide us with any personal information and must do so if any applicable law of your state or country so requires. In such event, although you will be able to observe the NCEES website, you will not be able to use and access those portions of the site that require your personal information.
What information we know about you and how we use it
If you register an account at the NCEES website, you will be asked to provide certain personal information, like your name, postal address, e-mail address, or phone number. In addition, depending upon the type of account you set up or service you request from NCEES, you may be asked certain additional personal information like your Social Security number, gender, birthplace, date of birth, country of citizenship, educational history, and certain financial information. Other personal information may be generated automatically as you use the NCEES website—for example, a history of postings, messages, and pages visited.
Disclosure of information to third parties
We process credit card transactions via industry standard encryption through third-party processors, which processors only use your financial information for that purpose. Financial information is considered extremely private information and will not be shared by us with third parties except with your authorization and as necessary to carry out orders placed by you with the understanding by you that such transaction(s) may be subject to the rules and policies of such third party processor.
When we may be forced to disclose
The importance of security is a top priority for us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your Internet connection to our servers. We work to protect the security of your personal information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We also take great care to protect personal information off-line. All of your data is handled only by authorized personnel, and our database servers have a backup system to prevent loss of data.
No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. Therefore, we will not be liable should a third-party illegally obtain your personal information. While we have made a great effort to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
Data from children
This site is neither directed toward nor intended for children. We do not knowingly collect data from children.
Other limits to your privacy
NCEES is not responsible for links to other websites or for the activities or content of other websites, or the agencies or entities specifically identified on the site to which or whom your personal information may be transmitted or sent as a result of your actions in using this site.
