NAESB Privacy Policy:

Dated: November 10, 2020

Your privacy is important to the North American Energy Standards Board (“NAESB”). The NAESB Privacy Policy (Policy) describes how NAESB collects and processes the personal information that you directly submit to NAESB, that we collect from you through the NAESB website,, and, that we collect from our service providers. This Policy also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information and how you can access and update this information.

Types of Information NAESB May Collect about You and How the Information is Collected

The information NAESB collects from you depends upon how you choose to interact with NAESB and the NAESB website. You may provide NAESB with your name, company, title, telephone number, billing and delivery addresses, and email address, along with other identifying information, by filling in forms, surveys, through the use of the NAESB subscription service, or through correspondence with us by post, phone, fax, email, webinar, listserv, chat, or social media. The information may also include your preferences in receiving direct-marketing from NAESB and your communication preferences. Additionally, contract information may be collected, as well as transaction data from providers of payment and fraud prevention services; identity, and contact data from data partners; and data from any third parties who are permitted by law or have your permission to share your information.

If you elect to participate in the NAESB Mail subscription service, you will receive targeted e-mail messages from NAESB about relevant events, including conference-call information, as well as important documents. If you elect to print any form from the NAESB website and fax or mail it to NAESB, any personal information collected will be treated in the same manner and receive the same protections as set forth in this Policy.

As is true of most websites, the NAESB website utilizes automated technologies such as: cookies, tags and scripts. Cookies must be enabled in order to complete the NAESB e-mail registration. NAESB may automatically collect data about your computer equipment, browsing, and patterns. This includes information such as an internet protocol (IP) address, your login data, referring/exit pages, clickstream data, internet service provider, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in type and version, operating system, platform, and other technology on the devices you use to access the NAESB website. Tags may be used by a privacy certification partner. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis. We do not link this automatically collected data to other information we collect about you.

How Your Data is Used

The information, including personal information, that you provide, or that NAESB collects, is used to provide you with convenient access to our products and services and allows NAESB to keep you posted on the latest product announcements, updates, news, and events. Additionally, NAESB may provide you with notices about your membership account, including expiration and renewal notices. NAESB may process your information because you have given permission to do so, because NAESB has a legitimate interest in collecting the data, and, in most cases, to perform a contract with you, along with any other purposes for which you consent. The collection of the information enables NAESB to address technical issues and may be utilized to comply with the law. NAESB may employ third party companies, and contractors to provide service on its behalf, perform service-related services, or assist in analyzing how our service is used. These third parties have access to your personal information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

NAESB will only keep your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the legitimate interests or business requirements it was collected for and to satisfy any legal, accounting, contractual, or reporting requirements.

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or property, protect your safety or the safety of others and investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.
