Introduction and General Terms
Our Commitment to You
Your personal data will not be disclosed to state institutions and authorities except if required by law or other regulation. Before we release data on this basis, we will ensure that the information is being provided to a genuine and properly authorized investigation.
Who We Are
NPA is an IT, networking, cloud migration, systems integration and design consultant, specializing in telecommunications, payments, supply chain management, digital marketing and converged data center solutions, providing services on premise, on the web and mobile devices.
What Data We Collect
You may visit NPA’s website anonymously.
When you sign up for NPA, we require your email address as part of allowing you to access NPA and to contact you about any important changes to your account. We may also collect your first and last name, company name, address and phone number(s) to display on your documents and reports.
As we process requests from our mobile app, browser, sync manager, or any other device that NPA can be used from, we may use and store additional information, such as your IP address and the device you are using.
How We Use Your Data
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
To personalize your experience – Your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs.
To process transactions – Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the purchased product or service requested.
To send periodic emails – The email address you provide to us will be used to send you information and updates about NPA. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.
Customer service – We will use the information you provide to deliver customer services related to your NPA account and to respond to inquiries or requests that you direct to us. Your data will not be added to any marketing lists unless you have consented to this, and will only be shared with third parties where we have appointed them to manage specific aspects of your customer care.
Direct marketing – We may use the details you share with us to send you offers and promotions by email wherever we have legitimate interest grounds to do so and where you have not objected. We will provide a way for you to opt-out of receiving marketing promotions both at the time of data capture and every time we contact you thereafter. You can also email [email protected] to request your details are suppressed from all promotional campaigns. We won’t use your personal data for marketing purposes at all if you’ve told us not to.
Legitimate interest – We may process your personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest which may include promoting similar products or services via direct marketing activity, to manage suppression and unsubscribe requests received from you, to identify and prevent fraudulent behavior, maintaining the security of our system, data analytics, enhancing, modifying or improving our services, identifying usage trends and determining the effectiveness of our campaigns. Whenever we process data for these purposes we will ensure that we always keep your personal data rights in high regard and take account of these rights.
Log data – We store information about your location and device when you interact with NPA, which we refer to as “Log Data.” This Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, referring web page, location, your mobile carrier, device information (including device and application IDs), search terms, and cookie information. We use Log Data to operate our services and ensure their secure, reliable, and robust performance.

How We Keep Your Data Secure
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.
We have use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider’s database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and who are required to keep the information confidential.
After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.
Who We Share Information With
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.
We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety.
Non-personally identifiable information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
How Long We Keep Your Personal Data
We will hold your personal information on our systems only for as long as required to provide you with the products and/or services you have requested. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements; this retention period may extend past the point at which you close your account.
Where you sign up to receive email marketing from us we will retain your email address after you ‘opt-out’ of receiving emails to ensure that we continue to honor and respect that request. To unsubscribe from marketing emails at any time, please click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any marketing email and update your account preferences. You may also contact us at [email protected] to inform us if you do not wish to receive any marketing materials from us.
We keep Log Data for a maximum of 16 days.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see below, for further information.
In some circumstances, we may anonymize your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Personal Data – Your Rights
You have the rights shown below:
- Your right to be informed
- Your right of access
- Your right to rectification
- Your right to erasure
- Your right to restrict processing
- Your right to data portability
- Your right to object
- Your rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.
Right to Be Informed
You have the right to be informed about the data we collect and how we use it. That is the purpose of this document. If you have any questions about how we use your data, you can contact us as [email protected].
Right of Access
You may, at any time, request access to the personal data that we hold which relates to you (you may have heard of this right being described as a “subject access request”). Please note that this right entitles you to receive a copy of the personal data that we hold about you to enable you to check that it is correct and to ensure that we are processing that personal data lawfully. It is not a right that allows you to request personal data about other people, or a right to request specific documents from us that do not relate to your personal data. You can exercise this right at any time by writing to us at [email protected] and telling us that you are making a subject access request. You do not have to fill in a specific form to make this kind of request.
Your Right to Rectification and Erasure
You may, at any time, request that we correct personal data that we hold about you which you believe is incorrect or inaccurate.
You may also ask us to erase personal data if you do not believe that we need to continue retaining it (you may have heard of this right described as the “right to be forgotten”).
Please note that we may ask you to verify any new data that you provide to us and may take our own steps to check that the new data you have supplied us with is correct. Further, we are not always obliged to erase personal data when asked to do so; if for any reason we believe that we have a good legal reason to continue processing personal data that you ask us to erase, we will tell you what that reason is at the time we respond to your request.
You can exercise this right at any time by writing to us at [email protected] and telling us that you are making a request to have your personal data rectified or erased and on what basis you are making that request. If you want us to replace inaccurate data with new data, you should tell us what that new data is. You do not have to fill in a specific form to make this kind of request.
Your Right to Restrict Processing
Where we process your personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest (see the How We Use Your Data section of this Policy which explains why we use your personal data), you are entitled to ask us to stop processing it in that way if you feel that our continuing to do so impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms or if you feel that those legitimate interests are not valid.
You may also ask us to stop processing your personal data (a) if you dispute the accuracy of that personal data and want us to verify that data’s accuracy; (b) where it has been established that our use of the data is unlawful, but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where we no longer need to process your personal data (and would otherwise dispose of it), but you wish for us to continue storing it in order to enable you to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
Please note that if for any reason we believe that we have a good legal reason to continue processing personal data that you ask us to stop processing, we will tell you what that reason is, either at the time we first respond to your request or after we have had the opportunity to consider and investigate it.
You can exercise this right at any time by writing to us at [email protected] and telling us that you are making a request to have us stop processing the relevant aspect of your personal data and describing which of the above conditions you believe is relevant to that request. You do not have to fill in a specific form to make this kind of request.
Your Right to Portability
Where you wish to transfer certain personal data that we hold about you, which is processed by automated means, to a third party you may write to us and ask us to provide it to you in a commonly used machine-readable format.
Because of the kind of work that we do and the systems that we use, we do not envision this right being particularly relevant to most individuals with whom we interact. However, if you wish to transfer your data from us to a third party we are happy to consider such requests.
Your Right to Stop Receiving Communications
For details on your rights to ask us to stop sending you various kinds of communications, please contact us at [email protected].
Your Right to Object to Automated Decision-making and Profiling
You have the right to be informed about the existence of any automated decision making and profiling of your personal data, and where appropriate, be provided with meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisioned consequences of such processing that affects you. At this time, NPA has no automated decision-making tools. Any marketing materials or processing exercised on your account is based on the country you are in and the plan you have selected.
Exercising your Rights
If you wish to exercise any of these rights or simply wish to find out what information, if any, we hold that relates to you, you must make your request in writing by sending an email to [email protected] or a letter to NPA, Attention Privacy Team, 1610 Harrison St. #C, Oakland, CA 94612.
You can help us to process your request quickly by providing us with information that will help us identify records we hold that relate to you, for example, your email address you use on your NPA account, first and last names, and/or company name.
