Notification Of Changes

This privacy statement was last updated on January 1, 2015. A notice will be posted on our web site home page for 30 days whenever this privacy statement is changed.

Business Relationships

Websites Powered by NEXGEN Solutions may contain links to other web sites. NEXGEN is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any such web site. Our site and those of our "on-demand" application subscribers also contain links to external Internet sites and co-branded sites, which may be operated by an independent 3rd party and they may have privacy practices that differ from ours.

A co-branded site is a website, usually operated by a third-party, and displaying that third-party's name along with our name and logo. Such co-branded sites are either built using NEXEN Subscriber Services or they offer NEXGEN approved goods or services to our users. When you click on links that take you to such external or co-branded sites, you will be subject to their privacy policies, and we encourage you to become familiar with that party's privacy policies as these may differ from those defined here. Please note that this privacy statement applies solely to information collected by NEXGEN on our Site(s) and, while we strongly support the protection of privacy on the Internet, we cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of other websites, use of information collected by other websites, or the content of those other Websites.

Online Advertising

NEXGEN has certain companies help us deliver our banner ads and other online communications. These companies may collect and use information about customers to help us better understand the offers, promotions, and types of advertising that are most appealing to our customers. The information they collect is aggregated so it is not identifiable to a specific individual. We d not provide the information that we collect from you individually to these companies, however we may combine information collected from you with information collected from others so that we can provide aggregated information to these companies. Aggregate information will never identify you specifcally. For example, we might tell the companies that we have 100 subscribers based in Manhattan New York, but we would never disclose the detailed information about the 100 subscribers.

Collection Of Corporate Information

During the subscription process for our "on-demand" applications and then again during the setup & configuration process we collect some very detailed information about your business and its operations, some of which you might consider confidential, so we are disclosing how we utilize the information collected. In most cases, we aggregate the information collected from our Subscribers and generate demographic, socio-economic and statistical reports that are distributed on line and in printed form. The information contained in these Aggregation Reports will never disclose your identity onliness the nature of the on-demand application you have subscribed to requires disclosure of your identity. For example, our on-demand Diverse Supplier portal makes profile information about your company available to large businesses looking for diverse suppliers.

  1. Location Registration: This information is collected for use in generating Aggregation Reports as well as reports provided to your customers regarding actual procurement transactions that have taken place within your supplier site. In addition, this information is used for purposes of remitting payments, collecting debts, and returning goods and services previously purchased online from you by your customers.
  2. Business Profile: This information is collected for use in generating Aggregation Reports as well as reports provided to your customers regarding actual procurement transactions that have taken place within your supplier site.
  3. References: Trade references are used by NEXGEN and its affiliated companies to determine credit worthiness for subscriber related products and services that you may request from time to time. Contract reference information is made available to prospective customers interested in possibly doing business with your firm but desiring information on other contracts that you have performed. Bonding reference information is also collected for review by prospective customers.
  4. Financials: We have and are continuing to negotiate terms and agreements with third party organizations that are interested in accepting electronic applications and/or registrations ranging from minority certification to bank loans. Your financial information will NEVER be released without you directing us to do so. However, by having the information on-line it enables us to quickly and easily route electronic applications and related information packages on your behalf and always with your advanced approval.
  5. User Registration: Individual user information will be used only to present a more personalized experience to that individual from whom we have collected the information, to the Subscriber organization under whom they have been registered, and in generating Aggregation Reports as described above.
  6. NEXGEN Application: This document is compiled on your behalf for application to obtain the products and or services of third parties who have agreed to accept our consolidated electronic application. The application will not be distributed to anyone for any reason with your consent, which we will always obtain in advance. Of course, you can print out this standard application and use it whenever you like.

We provide those who conduct procurements from our on-demand Supplier Site Subscribers with access to detailed information relating to their purchase, the business profile of the supplier, who they purchased from, and the demographic and socio-economic status of the supplier from whom they purchased.

NEXGEN may create and maintain a supplier profile on your behalf using information available to the public from the the United States Small Business Administration, the Department of Defense Central Contractor Registry and/or other similar Federal, State, and Local Government agency supplier profiling systems and occasionally supplier profiling systems maintained by large commercial companies. Our objective is to provide you with one location for managing your business profile and its capabilities with many third party organizations that may have an interest in conducting procurements from your company, or are affiliated with organizations that may wish to buy your products and services.

In this regard, only the information requested of all other third party supplier program participants will be provided on your behalf. This is done to reduce the overhead and maintenance associated with managing and maintaining profiles with multiple organizations.

Requests By Authorities

NEXGEN will comply with any and all court ordered disclosures or disclosures demanded by a government authority for official purposes.

Information Security & Quality

We intend to protect the quality and integrity of your personally identifiable information. We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures, such as using encryption, to help us keep your information secure, accurate, current, and complete.

We will make a sincere effort to respond in a timely manner to your requests to correct inaccuracies in your information.

Cookies, Web Beacons, & Other Technologies

We sometimes collect information from visits to our sites to help us and our subscribers provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit and we also measure visitor activity on NEXGEN and subscriber sites. This information is sometimes known as "clickstream data". NEXGEN, Subscribers and/or our analytics vendors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics to help us provide better customer service and to evolve our offerings.

Also, when we collect data from you or your customer in connection with a transaction we may extract some information about that transaction and combine it with other information such as clickstream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns.

We collect the \information we mentioned in the previous paragraphs through the use of various technologies, including one called "cookies". A cookie is an element of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. Some NEXGEN and/or Subscriber pages use cookies, sent by NEXGEN or its third party vendors, or other technologies to better serve you when you return to the site. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies. If you do so, however, some areas of some sites may not function properly.

Some NEXGEN or Subscriber sites also use Web beacon technologies to better tailor those sites to provide better customer service. These "Web beacons" are placed on a number of pages. When a visitor accesses these pages, a notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by us or by our vendors. These Web beacons work in conjunction with cookies. If you don't want to associate your cookie information with your visits to these pages, you can set your browser to turn off cookies.

If you turn off cookies, web beacon technologies will still detect visits to these pages, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other cookie information and are disregarded.

Privacy Technology

Technology will increasingly help you to have more control over your personal and corporate information. It will also help organizations to manage their privacy practices and policies. As an information technology provider, NEXGEN actively supports the development of privacy technologies to help achieve these goals, and to help create greater trust and confidence in the way personal information is handled. Products and services are available which can help give you privacy protection while navigating the Web.

Personalized Url Links

On occasion, NEXGEN presents a personalized URL (link) that brings the visitor to a personalized Web page. Such a personal URL is readily identifiable and by clicking on that link and going to a personal Web page you are agreeing to let NEXGEN collect information about your session visits. We use this information to help us provide you with information that matches your interests. If you do not wish information to be used in this way, simply do not click on such personalized URLs.
