The NBC respects your privacy.  The NBC does not collect or hold sensitive personal information.  However, any private information delivered by you to the NBC will be secured and protected with at least the same degree of care that the NBC would protect its own confidential information and then such information received by the NBC will be destroyed.  The NBC will not be responsible for any unauthorized or unforeseeable use or misuse of your private information.
