MSNCB knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate that you trust us to do so carefully and sensibly. MSNCB has developed this statement on privacy to help MSNCB Website users understand how any personal information we collect is used.
What information does MSNCB collect from you?
Generally, visitors to the MSNCB Website are not asked for any identifying information, however, we collect aggregate information on what pages visitors access or visit.
Information volunteered by the visitor during but not limited to account registration, contact request form submission, certification application, product order, or email newsletter subscriptions, may include your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, employer, last 4 digits of your social security number, credentials, password, demographics, payment information, and other information of those who communicate with us via email, mail and/or phone.
How do we use the information we collect?
The information we collect is used to:
- process applications and fulfill product requests
- improve the content of our Website
- communicate with our applicants and certificants
- announce relevant products and services
MSNCB uses the information collected from Website visitors to communicate MSNCB updates and recertification information. MSNCB certificants and candidates may receive mailing, email, or telephone contact from us with information regarding transaction information, new products and services, or to obtain your input on MSNCB matters.
Application information for certification such as partial social security number, RN license, and employer is considered confidential and is not shared with ANY outside party. It is used only by MSNCB, the testing agency, C-NET, and the computer company, PSI, for certification processing purposes.
If you are not an MSNCB certificant, do not wish to receive such contact, and would like to be removed from our database, please let us know by calling or writing us at the above contact information. If you are certified through MSNCB, we need to maintain your postal information, and email address in order to fulfill our obligation to you as an MSNCB certificant and therefore must keep your information in our database for six years.
We also share the information with other reputable organizations to help them contact MSNCB applicants and certificants for marketing purposes. We do not sell your information to third parties.
Updating or Correcting Your Information
Upon request we can provide site visitors with access to information that we maintain on them. This may include unique identifier information (e.g., customer number, email address), transaction information (e.g., dates on which customers made purchases, amounts, and types of purchases), and contact information (e.g., name, address, phone number).
You can access and change/correct your contact information by editing your user account or by calling, emailing, or writing us at the above contact information.
Contact Information Available on MSNCB.org
Contact information for our Board of Directors and other leaders (such as committee or task force chairs) is provided on this site for the purposes of making it possible for MSNCB certificants and prospective MSNCB certificants to contact these leaders. Use of this contact information for other reasons (e.g., compiling an e-mailing list, sales solicitations, other commercial use) is strictly prohibited.
MSNCB Certificant Directory
The CMSRN or CCCTM certificant directory is provided as a service for confirming MSNCB certificant status. While we make every effort to ensure this directory is current, it is not an authoritative resource for establishing an individual's certification status. If you have any questions about certification status, please contact MSNCB.
Use of this contact information for other reasons (e.g., compiling an e-mailing list, sales solicitations, other commercial use) is strictly prohibited.
If you are an MSNCB certificant and would like to not be included in the searchable directory, you can request to be removed from the directory by calling, emailing, or writing us at the above contact information.
Social Media/Third Party Information
Information posted on MSNCB social media sites should not be considered medical advice and should not replace a consultation with a health care professional.
Care has been taken to confirm the accuracy and relevance of information presented on social media sites, the MSNCB Website, and email broadcasts at the time of publication or posting. However, constant changes in information resulting from continuing research and clinical experience, reasonable differences in opinions among health care professionals, unique aspects of individual situations, and the possibility of human error require you to exercise individual judgment when making a clinical decision.
Links to Third Party Websites/Social Media Pages
MSNCB is not responsible for changes and updates made to these third party sites after posting. Third party content may also be moved to a new url or removed from the site, and may not always be available. If you have concerns with any content shared or posted, please contact MSNCB.
Contacting MSNCB about Privacy Questions or Concerns
From time to time, we may use visitor information for new, unanticipated purposes not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. In the event of such changes, you will be notified with detailed information so that you may respond accordingly.
