For each visitor to this Web site and to ADA.org, our Web server automatically recognizes only the user's domain name, but not the e-mail address (where possible). The domain name and internet protocol (IP) address of visitors to this Web site and ADA.org, aggregate information on what pages users access or visit, user-specific information on what pages users access or visit, and information volunteered by users is collected.

As part of the NBDE and NBDHE programs, certain personal information may be collected to provide you with services related to those programs and to engage in research for specific, defined purposes. Such personal information may include names, identification numbers, contact information, and academic information. Your contact information may be used to communicate with you regarding testing applications, your testing appointment or score report requests.
Whenever the JCNDE conducts research using personally identifiable data, that research is reviewed by an institutional review board to ensure protection of your interests. Results and information relating to such research include only summary or aggregate data reported in such a way that individuals cannot be identified.
Unless authorized by you and except as provided herein, we will not give or sell your e-mail address, contact information or other personal information to any third party.

Your personal information may also be used to give notice to you in relation to any unauthorized use of JCNDE and/or ADA services, networks or intellectual property. In addition, your personal information may be released as permitted by law in the unlikely event such release is deemed necessary to protect the health and safety of customers or others, or to legally protect and JCNDE and/or the ADA, their customers or service providers.
