Do Not Track Disclosures

Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” (DNT) signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not change our tracking practices (which are explained in more detail under “Site Usage Information” above) in response to DNT settings in your web browser.

Our third-party partners, such as Google Analytics, collect information about your online activities over time and across our Site and other online properties. These third-parties may not change their tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your web browser and we do not obligate these parties to honor DNT settings. We utilize Google Analytics for our web analytics and you can opt out of your Site usage data being included in our Google Analytics reports by visiting


While we endeavor to protect the security and integrity of sensitive Personal Information collected via this Site, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that any information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our system or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely error-free or safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers. We do not warrant or represent that the Site’s level of security meets or exceeds any particular standard, and any information you submit via the Site is at your own risk.

If you correspond with us by e-mail, text message, or using a “contact us” feature on our Site, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure. A third-party could view the information you send in transit by such means. We will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third-parties during or after transmission.

If at any time during or after our relationship we believe that the security of your Personal Information in our care may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you. We will endeavor to notify you as promptly as possible under the circumstances. If we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail to the most recent e-mail address you have provided us.

"Linked-To" Web Sites

The Site may contain links, banners, widgets or advertisements that lead to other Web sites. We are not responsible for these other sites, and so their posted privacy policies (not this Notice) will govern the collection and use of your information on them. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each Web site visited after leaving the Site to learn about how your information is treated by others.

In particular, the Restricted Sites may be maintained by a third-party service provider who may have its own privacy notice. We encourage you to review the policies that are applicable to the Restricted Sites. We are not responsible for any such policies.

Data Subject Rights Under UK/European Union Law

If you are a natural person (a “Data Subject”), you may have certain rights in addition to those described elsewhere in this Notice. These rights are in relation to your Personal Information, and include the right to be informed about the collection and use of your Personal Information, as outlined in this Notice.

Such rights may also include, where certain conditions are met:

  • the right to request access to the Personal Information we hold about you;
  • the right to have information about you amended, updated, or deleted;
  • the right to object to processing of Personal Information about you;
  • the right to withdraw consent at any time (where relevant);
  • the right to have Personal Information about you erased or to restrict processing in certain limited situations;
  • the right to data portability and to request the transmission of Personal Information about you to another organization;
  • the right to object to automated decision making that materially impacts you, direct marketing, and processing for research or statistical purposes;
  • the right to lodge complaints with applicable data supervisory authorities;

As a Data Subject, you should use the contact information below to get more information and/or to make a formal request. We will endeavor to keep the Personal Information we store about you reasonably accurate and up-to-date by enabling you to correct it by request.

You should notify us if any of your Personal Information changes or if you become aware of any inaccuracies in the Personal Information we hold about you.

Disclosure & Retention of Data Subjects’ Personal Information

We will take reasonably necessary steps to ensure that where Personal Information of Data Subjects is shared with third-parties, it is treated securely and in accordance with this Notice and applicable laws.

We will endeavor not to keep Personal Information in a form that allows a Data Subject to be identified for any longer than is reasonably necessary for achieving the permitted purposes. At the end of the applicable retention period, we may destroy, erase from our systems, or anonymize Personal Information as part of such efforts. To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of the Data Subject’s Personal Information, the purposes for which we process the Data Subject’s Personal Information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Storage & Transfer of Data Subjects’ Personal Information

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards designed to protect Data Subjects’ personal information, prevent unlawful or unauthorized processing of personal information, and prevent unauthorized disclosure of, or accidental loss of, or damage to, such information.

Personal information will be collected in the USA and may be transferred to other jurisdictions. Where we share personal data internationally, we will seek to ensure that applicable safeguards are in place to the extent required by applicable data protection laws. In that regard, we may use specific contracts approved by the relevant data protection authorities which give your personal data the same protection it has in the UK/EEA (where applicable).

We restrict access to non-public personal information about Data Subjects to those of our employees and agents who need to know the information to enable us to provide services.


In the event that you wish to make a complaint about how your personal data is being processed by NEA (or third-parties as described above), or how your complaint has been handled, you have the right to lodge a complaint directly with your domestic supervisory authority or you can contact us per the below.

Changes to this Privacy Notice

We may change this Notice from time to time. When we do, we will let you know by posting the changed Notice on this page with a new “Last Updated Date.” In some cases (for example, if we significantly expand our use or sharing of your Personal Information), we may also tell you about changes by additional means, such as by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address we have on file for you.
