NLADA reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor the user content you post on DefenderResearch.legal. We reserve the right to remove any such information or material for any reason or no reason, including without limitation if in our sole opinion such information or material violates, or may violate, any applicable law or to protect or defend our rights or property or those of any third party. NLADA also reserves the right to remove information upon the request of any third party.
How We Share Your Information
Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to DefenderResearch.legal, such as user content, becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy or website customization settings. If you remove information that you posted to DefenderResearch.legal, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or if other users have copied or saved that information.
How We Protect Your Information
NLADA cares about the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to NLADA or guarantee that your information on the service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. Your privacy settings may also be affected by changes to the functionality of third-party providers, such as social networks. NLADA is not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third party.
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from NLADA, at all times.
Compromise of Personal Information
Your Choices About Your Information
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through DefenderResearch.legal, in which case NLADA may not be able to provide certain services to you. You can review and correct the information about you that NLADA keeps on file by contacting using the contact information on the About page.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, OUR ORGANZATION does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for DefenderResearch.legal accounts. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on DefenderResearch.legal. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us using the contact information on the About page.
