NCC is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our customers, and wants you to feel comfortable using its website at https://www.nationalcredachek.com, https://www.nccreports.com, and any other NCC website (collectively, the "Website") and its services ("Services"). We want you to understand how we protect your privacy when we collect and use your information in the course of business, as well as the measures we take to safeguard your personally identifiable information. By using the Website or Services you consent to this Privacy Policy.

The Website

This Privacy Policy applies solely to the Website and the Services, which may contain links to third party websites that are not owned or controlled by NCC. NCC has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party website. NCC will not and cannot censor or edit the content of any third party website. You access such third party websites or content at your own risk. You should always read the privacy policy of a third party website before providing any information to the website. By using the Website or the Services, you release NCC from any and all liability arising from your use of any third party website.

Your Personally Identifiable Information

We may collect the following personally identifiable information should you voluntarily submit it to NCC through the Website or Services (by registering for an account, for example) either directly or through a third party that is a client of NCC or otherwise, including, but not limited to: your first and last name, your home and other physical address, your email address, your telephone number, your social security number, your date of birth, and other financial information ("Personal Information").

While providing service to credit applicants and lenders, we collect Personal Information from the following sources.

Usage Data and Website Activity

When you visit the Website, we may collect passive information about your visit. Passive information is any form of aggregate data, navigational data, tracking data, click-stream data, or historical data, which does not in itself personally identify you ("Usage Data"). For example, each time you use the Website, we automatically collect the type of Web browser you use, your operating system, your Internet Service Provider, your IP address, the pages you view, and the time and duration of your visits to the Website. We use this information to help us understand how people use the Website and Services, and to enhance the services we offer.

"Cookies"

We may use "cookies" (small text files placed on your computer to identify your computer and browser) and may use anonymous identifiers (a random string of characters that is used for the same purposes as a cookie) to enhance your experience with the Website and Services. If enabled in your browser, cookies may store small amounts of data that enable us to customize our content according to your preferences. We may use cookies or anonymous identifiers to: (i) keep count of your return visits to the Website; (ii) accumulate anonymous, aggregate, statistical information on website usage; and (iii) save your password so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit our Website. Cookies tell us nothing about you personally, unless you specifically give us additional information. Most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent, however, certain features of the Website or Services may not work if you delete or disable cookies. Some of our Service Providers may use their own cookies in connection with the services they perform on our behalf.

How Do We Use and Share Information

We do not sell, share or disclose your Personal Information to non-affiliated third-party companies other than as disclosed in this Privacy Policy. We restrict access to your Personal Information at NCC to those members of our firm who require it to provide services to you.

NCC will disclose your Personal Information in the following circumstances:

Security

Keeping your information secure is a priority for NCC. We restrict access to your Personal Information to those employees and agents who need the information to assist in providing the Services. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable law to protect your Personal Information. We train our employees in the proper handling of Personal Information.

Some pages of the Website may use security measures to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that is transmitted through the Website. These pages use Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") connections with at least 128-bit encryption for certain transactions and confidential data. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any other network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit, and you do so at your own risk.

Service Providers

From time to time, we may establish business relationships with other businesses that we believe to be trustworthy and who have confirmed that their privacy practices are consistent with ours ("Service Providers"). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, data storage and management, and marketing and promotions. We only provide our Service Providers with the information necessary for them to perform these services on our behalf. Each Service Provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices, appropriate to the nature of the information involved, in order to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Service Providers are prohibited from using Personal Information other than as specified by NCC.

Children's Online Privacy Protection

The Website and the Services comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). NCC does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, as soon as we verify the information, we will immediately delete the information from our servers. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information by children under 13, please do so by contacting us at the contact information listed below.

Other Transfers

We may share Personal Information and Usage Data with businesses controlling, controlled by or under common control with NCC. If NCC is merged, acquired or sold or in the event of a transfer of some or all of our assets, we may disclose or transfer Personal Information and Usage Data in connection with that transaction. You will have the opportunity to opt out of any such transfer if, in our discretion, the new entity plans to handle your information in a way that differs materially from this Privacy Policy.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement

NCC cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose Personal Information and any other information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties if, in our discretion, we believe it is necessary or appropriate in order to respond to legal requests (including court orders and subpoenas), to protect the safety, property or rights of NCC or of any third party, to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity or to comply with the law.

Processing in the United States

Please be aware that your Personal Information and communications may be transferred to and maintained on servers or databases located outside your state, province, or country. If you are located outside of the United States, please be advised that we process and store all information in the United States. The laws in the United States may not be as protective of your privacy as those in your location. By using the Website or Services, you agree that the collection, use, transfer, and disclosure of your Personal Information and communications will be governed by the applicable laws in the United States.
