Information Collected by the NRAS
If you are merely browsing the ServSafe International web site, the only information we collect about you is done in a way that preserves your anonymity. The ServSafe International web site logs the IP address and domain name used in connecting to the site to track a user's session for systems administration purposes only. We collect this information to assess which parts of our site users are visiting. We do not link IP addresses or domain names to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user's session will be tracked, but the user will be anonymous.
You must register on the ServSafe International web site to purchase products, take online courses, sign up for email news, or engage in any other activity that requires us to keep track of your records individually. We collect this information to ensure the integrity of our services and to maintain accurate records for billing and shipping. For example, when you register we may collect contact information (like your email address), financial information (like your credit card numbers) and billing/shipping addresses to communicate with you and to effect payment for a purchase. You can elect not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of our services without disclosure of this information.
On occasion, NRAS may also survey and solicit feedback from users to help improve the products, services, and information that we provide. These information requests are strictly voluntary. Such surveys may also provide you with opportunities to receive products or additional business-related information, but you may opt-out of receiving these communications at that time.

If your access to goods or services on the ServSafe International web site has been paid for by another organization (e.g. your employer), we may also share some information with that organization.

We will remove the information from our customer database or change/correct personal information that you state is erroneous upon your request. If you have any questions about changing your personal information, please contact NRAS at ServSafeInternational@restaurant.org.
This site may make chat rooms, forums, message boards, listservs and/or news groups available to its users.
