Analytics Tracking Code

NBCA uses Google Analytics to analyze the audiences that visit this website and to improve its website content. No personal information is collected from Google Analytics. For more information about the privacy policy concerning Google Analytics, please visit: Google Analytics Overview.


To enhance the browsing experience on our site, many of NBCA’s web pages use “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that we place in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your email address or other personal information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering for one of our events.

Once you choose to provide a web page with personal information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. A cookie is like an identification card. It is unique to your computer and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. We use cookies to understand site usage and to improve site content. We also use cookies to help you navigate the site. For example, if you choose to take our online VTE educational course for contact hours or CE credit, cookies are used to store where you left off so that when you leave and come back to the online course you pick up where you left off. If you take our online course for CE credit and have cookies disabled, you will have to re-register upon returning and start the course from the beginning. If you want to control which cookies you accept, you can configure your browser to accept all cookies or to alert you every time a cookie is offered by a website’s server. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can set your browser option so that you will not receive cookies and you can also delete existing cookies from your browser.

Website Security

No data transmissions over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you understand that any information that you transfer to NBCA is done at your own risk. However, NBCA uses website security measures consistent with current best practices to protect its website, email and mailing lists. These measures include technical, procedural, monitoring and tracking steps intended to safeguard data from misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, loss, alteration or destruction.

Credit card information is transmitted using secure socket layer (SSL) encryption. Member and purchaser information is a high priority and we use our own protective measures, as well as the capabilities of our software and hardware vendors.

We realize there can be incidents of misuse or unauthorized program incursions, as almost every website, service and user encounters. In those instances, our goals are to move quickly to isolate the problem, ensure or restore proper functionality and minimize any inconvenience to our users. As appropriate and necessary, NBCA will notify the relevant authorities of these incidents of misuse or unauthorized program incursions of the NBCA website.

Third Party Links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we pay include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites. As stated above, we will neither send nor receive your personal data to or from third party sites.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. We may 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.
