NAI uses cookies, tokens, and from time to time may use other tracking technologies in order to make the results available for your on-site searches. Token-based authentication is a security technique that authenticates the users who attempt to log in to a server, a network, or some other secure system, using a security token provided by the server.  Tokens are used in the login process to the Members Only section of the Site. The token controls the login process expire after 24 hours, unless you use "Member log out", which removes the cookie immediately. The NAI Member Experience uses a cookie, which is a small file that is sent out by a website, accepted by the user's browser, and placed on the user's hard drive. You can always set your browser to warn of cookies being placed, and then chose which cookies you want to accept, or you can set your browser to reject all cookies. NAI does not match any information gathered by cookies or tokens with personal information you may have voluntarily submitted to NAI.

However, NAI will not provide your personal information to any of these companies, except as may be otherwise permitted by you or this Privacy Policy.
