Privacy Policy

The National Bicycle Dealers Association (NBDA) owns this site. Please note that NBDA does not pass personally identifiable information of our users to DoubleClick.

At NBDA we take your privacy seriously. Because of this we want to provide you with explicit information on how we collect, gather, and identify information during your visit to our site. This information may be expanded or updated as we change or develop our site. For this reason, we recommend that you review this policy from time-to-time to see if anything has changed. Your continued use of our site signifies your acceptance of our privacy policy.

Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, phone number, email or postal address. In many cases we need this information to provide the personalized or enhanced service that you have requested.

The amount of Personally Identifiable Information that you choose to disclose to NBDA is completely up to you. The only way we know something about you personally is if you provide it to us in conjunction with one of our services.

What information do we collect and how do we use it?

NBDA collects information on our users in three ways: by your voluntary submissions (for instance, if you sign up for one of our email newsletters) and/or surveys; sweepstakes and/or contest entries; and through cookie technology.

In our effort to provide personalization and opportunities for prizes and services, we may at times ask you to submit information such as your name or email address, or to share your interests and hobbies with us. You never have to answer these questions, and you can decline this exchange of information on any site on the Internet - not just ours - at any time. However, if you should choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with some of the services dependent upon the collection of this information, such as the purchase and shipment of products and information.

The information NBDA collects is used in a variety of ways: for internal review; to improve the content of the site, thus making your user experience more valuable; to notify you about updates to the service; and to let you know about products and services that you may be interested in.

Email: If you have provided us your email address, NBDA periodically sends promotional emails to its subscribers about services offered by NBDA and its partners. If you do not wish to receive email information from NBDA, please let us know by emailing us at info@nbda.com or by writing us at NBDA, Attn: Fred Clements, Executive Directory, 777 W. 19th St., Costa Mesa, CA 92627. The "email this article" feature is an easy way for you to send articles through email. The email addresses that you supply to use this service will not be used for any other purpose without your consent.

With whom does NBDA share the information it gathers/tracks?

From time to time we share this information with other reputable organizations for marketing purposes or the information is used by NBDA for its own marketing endeavors. As a valued customer, we offer you the opportunity to "opt out", or request not to accept these marketing opportunities. If at any time you change your mind and do not want NBDA to share your email address or home address with other companies and/or organizations, or would simply like to be removed from the list, please let us know by emailing us at info@nbda.com, or by writing us at NBDA, Attn: Fred Clements, Executive Directory, 777 W. 19th St., Costa Mesa, CA 92627

Sweepstakes/Contests

From time-to-time NBDA, along with other reputable companies, provides sweepstakes and other contests for the enjoyment of our users. By participating in the contest or sweepstakes and answering any and all questions, the user understands that NBDA and/or the involved company(s) may use the information obtained for marketing purposes. Children under 18 may not participate in any sweepstakes or contest promoted by NBDA.
