Privacy Policy

Please Note: There have been scam emails circulating offering to sell a list of NESEA event attendees. This is a common scam targeting many events. The senders are in no way affiliated with NESEA and any lists they are claiming to offer are not NESEA attendee lists. We do not make our attendee lists available for resale.

NESEA Privacy Policy

Collection of Personal Information
NESEA collects and retains personal information that you provide to us, such as your name, postal address, phone number, email address, employer, and professional affiliations or credentials, along with transactional information when you participate in NESEA activities, including:

  • Joining or renewing as a NESEA member
  • Creating a website account
  • Making a contribution to NESEA
  • Registering for a NESEA or BuildingEnergy event
  • Submitting a job posting, resume, case study, blog post, or conference session proposal
  • Creating a member profile or uploading a photo
  • Subscribing to NESEA communications

NESEA may also automatically collect technical information when you visit the website, such as the IP address or operating system of your computer or phone.
Sharing of Personal Information
NESEA maintains appropriate safeguards to secure the information we collect, and to ensure the appropriate use of information. NESEA does not share or disclose personal information to third parties, with certain, very limited exceptions. Attendee lists containing limited or no contact information for NESEA and BuildingEnergy events are provided to certain event sponsors, exhibitors, and hosts. When registering for an event, attendees are provided the opportunity to opt-out for that event.
Payment Transactions
Online transactions are conducted via an industry-standard secure encrypted channel.  Information is directly collected through a secure server by our credit card processor, and card numbers submitted online are not accessible to NESEA. Payment information is not retained by our processor once your transaction has been authorized and processed unless you have requested an automatic membership renewal or made a recurring donation.
Opt-out and Communication  Preferences
You may choose to not receive email communications by unsubscribing from all further email communications, or just communications of a specific type, by clicking the appropriate unsubscribe link at the bottom of a NESEA email message. You may also opt out of email or any other type of communication by sending a request to, calling us at (413) 774-6051 ext. 19, or mailing a request to NESEA at 20 Federal St., Suite 8, Greenfield, MA 01301.

Control of Your Information
If at any time you would like to update or request the deletion of your personal information in NESEA’s database, please use the contact information indicated above.

Member Contact Messages
The member contact message system is provided as a convenience for NESEA members. Messages are sent to the indicated recipient from the website via regular Internet email and are not retained or monitored by NESEA staff. As is the case with regular Internet email, transmitted messages are not secure, so confidential information should not be included in contact messages. Members may opt out of this message system at any time by unchecking the contact option in their account profile or by requesting this using the contact information indicated above.

Website Visitor Tracking
NESEA does not collect personal information in browser cookies, nor do we grant access to tracking information to third parties. We may use a service called Google Analytics to collect information about use of our  website. Google Analytics collects anonymous information such as how often people visit this site and what pages they visit. This data is only used internally by NESEA and is not shared with third parties.
Links to Other Websites
The website includes links to other websites.  We are not responsible for the policies and practices of other organizations, the contents of their websites, or how they use any information that you may provide to them.
Policy Changes
NESEA may occasionally update this privacy policy, at which time we will post any changes on this web page. If significant changes are made, we will publish a notice that the policy has been modified and provide a link to the revised privacy policy.
