An email address is also collected when subscribing to the NTB Survey email mailing list via an active customer opt-in. The email address is transferred to and subsequently managed by the MailChimp Email Marketing Provider.
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
How do we collect your data?

• Register online or place an order for any of our products or services.
• Voluntarily complete a customer survey or provide feedback on any of our message boards or via email.
• Use or view our website via your browser’s cookies.

By default WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone.
How do we store your data?
We retain personal information until it is no longer necessary for the provision of our services unless you request for its deletion (whichever comes first).
Personal information that has been deleted may persist in our backup systems, but will not be readily accessible. Our services use encrypted backup storage as another layer of protection to help recover from potential disasters.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
