4. Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information

If, however, we are going to use Users' personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via e-mail. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if Users have opted out of all communication with the NUG website, or deleted/deactivated their registration with the NUG website, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in such new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect User information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on the NUG website notifying Users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also e-mail Users who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
