The purpose of this policy is to explain how we handle the information we collect from you during your visit to our web site. It is important to keep in mind that we do not collect personally-identifiable information (name, address, e-mail address, social security number, or other unique identifiers) on our web site unless we specifically advise you that we are doing so.

NSCB reserves the right to change this statement at any time by posting revisions on the NSCB Web site. This privacy policy is not intended to, and does not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.

Information Collected from E-mail and Subscription Forms

When you send us personally-identifying information in an e-mail or through a subscription form, we use the information you provide only to help us gather the information you might request. In an effort to respond to your request, the information you submit may be viewed by various people within the NSCB. Public notices issued by the NSCB in which interested persons are invited to comment will contain a notice of what we intend to do with the data gathered.

Security, Intrusion and Detection

An e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. Whether or not an e-mail is "secured" depends on your software.

Purchasers of NSCB Products and Services

To order our products, you will have to provide us with personally-identifiable information to support the purchase. The information you provide may be entered into a database maintained to service our customers. While personally-identifiable information you provide is protected by law, we may be required by law to disclose the names and addresses of businesses that purchase our products.

II. Document Accessibility Statement

The NSCB is committed to making every document on its internet server accessible to all. As such, we are continuously reviewing our site to insure maximum accessibility. Many of our internet documents are in HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and PDF (Portable Document Format) formats which make them accessible to persons using screen reading software.


III. NSCB Statement on Statistical Quality

The NSCB warrants that all materials released have undergone the highest quality statistical data collection and processing methods available to it. Hence, the Board recommends that in any use of NSCB information, data users and researchers should acknowledge the data source by incorporating in their analyses the corresponding technical notes needed for better understanding of the data.
