Privacy Policy

We respect the privacy of our customers and all those who visit the website of the North American Center for Marianist Studies (NACMS). We recognize the need for appropriate protections and management of personal information that you provide us. Our policy is pretty simple; we do not share your personal information with anyone without your permission.

NACMS only collects personal information when you request our services and only uses the information collected to provide those services for you. If you choose to make a purchase, you will be asked to provide contact information (such as name and shipping address) and financial information (such as your credit card and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to process your order. Credit card information is not stored by NACMS, but some information may be stored by Merchant Express, our credit card processing company, for compliance purposes. NACMS handles all of this data with the utmost confidentiality.

Third Parties

Any personal information provided will not be traded, rented, sold, or otherwise shared with anyone outside of NACMS or used for reasons beyond those contemplated in this statement. From time to time, NACMS may engage third parties to process your information on your behalf; however, none of the NACMS affiliates (such as our credit card company or web design organization) have permission to retain, share, store, or use personal information for any reason other than providing the requested services.

Security

To prevent unauthorized access, disclosure and improper use of your information, NACMS has established appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial safeguards to protect the information we collect in accordance with our privacy policy.

Changes to this Statement

NACMS will update this statement periodically.
