Like most website operators, NBI collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. NBI’s purpose in collecting non- personally identifying information is to better understand how NBI’s visitors use its website. From time-to-time, NBI may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends on the usage of its website.

NBI also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged users leaving comments on posts. NBI only discloses logged in user and commentor IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.


Certain visitors to NBI’s website choose to interact with NBI in ways that require NBI to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that NBI gathers depends on the nature of the interaction e.g. leaving comments or completing an enquiry form.


The security of your personal information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
