HOW NEXT GEN COALITION RESPONDS TO “DO NOT TRACK” SIGNALS

Many newer web browsers may have a “Do Not Track” preference that transmits a “Do Not Track” header to the websites you visit with information indicating that you do not want your activity to be tracked. Next Gen Coalition does not currently take actions to respond to Do Not Track signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed.

LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES

Our Site may reference or provide links to third party websites. Other websites may also reference or link to our Site. Because these websites are not controlled by Next Gen Coalition, we are not responsible for the third party websites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site to review the privacy policies posted on every website that collects personally identifiable information. Please be aware that Next Gen Coalition does not control, endorse, screen or approve, nor are we responsible for, the privacy policies or information practices of third parties or their websites or mobile applications. Visiting these other websites is at your own risk.

INFORMATION SECURITY

Next Gen Coalition implements reasonable technical and organizational security measures designed to help protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of Personal Information. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be entirely secure, and we do not assume any liability for any damage suffered by you caused by the interception, alteration, or misuse of information during transmission that is outside of our reasonable control. Users must accept all risks associated with any data transmission, including the risk that their Personal Information may be intercepted in transit.
