CREDIT CARD SECURITY-
When you submit your credit card, ASHA account number, and other sensitive information to
Northernspeech.com, rest assured that the transaction is secure. In fact, shopping online at NSS-NRS.com is
as safe as using your credit card at a restaurant or department store. Our servers use Secure Sockets Layer
(SSL), one of the most robust encryption platforms available. SSL technology works with Netscape Navigator
(versions 2.0 and above), Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 3.0 and above), AOL (AOL 3.0 and above),
Firefox, Safari and Opera. This technology encrypts your private information from the moment you enter it
until your transaction is processed, and your personal information will not be saved on a public
server--thus safeguarding your personal information and guaranteeing privacy.
If you still feel unsure about sending your information via internet, please feel free to call us
(888-337-3866) and we can take this information over the phone.
ALTERNATIVES TO SENDING YOUR CREDIT CARD OVER THE INTERNET-
We offer the option of phoning, faxing or mailing in your information after you place your order for
products or E-courses. Our system will generate prepared order forms which you can print and fax or mail.
Online seminar registration can only be processed with credit card payment.
HANDLING YOUR ORDER-
Every effort is made to handle your order in a timely manner. Our goal is to ship within 5-7 working days.
However, more often than not, items are shipped within 1-3 days.
We accept checks (US dollars only), money orders, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and purchase
orders for products and E-courses. Seminars must be prepaid with a credit card when registering online. If
you prefer not to register online, call 888-337-3866.
SHIPPING YOUR ORDER-
Orders are shipped via UPS and arrive within 7-10 working days. Non-US orders are also shipped UPS and
usually arrive within 3-6 weeks.
If an item is not in stock when your order is received, but will be in stock within one week we may ship a
partial order with a notation on the packing slip indicating the backordered item(s). If the item will take
longer than a week, we will call and let you know. It is not always possible for us to estimate how long a
backordered item will take to fill but generally they are shipped within 1-2 weeks. If you use a PO # to
order, your invoice will not be sent until the order is completely filled. If a partial shipment is not
acceptable to you, please let us know.
Tuition will be refunded less a $25 processing fee, if written notification is received by NSS up to two

NSS-NRS does not share, sell or trade email addresses, information collected as part of a survey, or
specific details about you. We do not contribute to or participate in shared or cooperative databases which
give other companies access to your personal information. We do not release credit card or financial
information for use by other companies. For privacy purposes, all information relating to our customers is
stored on a secure server that is not accessible via the Internet. We use your personal information only to
service you and your needs, and we do everything possible to keep the information secure.
What information do we collect online? How do we use it?
In areas of our site, we ask you to provide information by filling out and submitting online forms. We only
ask for the information needed to provide you with the services you request. For example, if you are taking
an E-course online and want to receive ASHA credit, we have to ask for your ASHA account number because it
is required by ASHA.
All information relating to our customers is stored in a secure environment separate from our Web site. In
order to make improvements to our site, we may gather information that helps show how customers use the
site. For example, we might do research to determine which areas are accessed most frequently. This
information is analyzed only in aggregate and not at the individual level. Personal information, such as
name and email address, is not included in the analysis.
Information we do not collect
When you visit our site, we do not collect your name, email address or any other personal information unless
you provide it to us. We do not follow your browsing path outside of NSS-NRS.
How we use email
It is important that you provide us with a valid email address when you set up an account so that we may
communicate with you. Your email will ONLY be used to communicate relevant account and ordering information.
For example, after you place an order on our site, we use your email address to send an order confirmation
with UPS tracking information, if applicable. You will also receive your seminar registration confirmation
via email, and your notices that online E-courses are available. You will receive these emails only if you
have provided your email address during checkout or as part of registering with the site.
Please note that we DO NOT sell or share email addresses with other companies. We use email only as a means
of giving you the information you need, and receiving feedback from our customers. We encourage you to email
us with your questions or comments. We read every email we receive.
