Do-Not-Call Policy
Telephone communications provide valuable opportunities for students and prospective students to consult with our enrollment specialists regarding products and services offered by NSAD and its affiliates. NSAD and its affiliates have adopted and adhere to the policies described below to comply with Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) and Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) telemarketing regulations and applicable state laws. As used in this document, “telemarketing” means a plan, program, or campaign conducted to induce the purchase of goods or services by use of a telephone.

Policy Overview
NSAD contacts only individuals that have provided their prior express consent to be called or with whom NSAD has an established business relationship. NSAD does not make “cold calls” to consumers for telemarketing purposes. NSAD does not use facsimile machines, predictive dialers, or autodialers for telemarketing purposes.

NSAD maintains comprehensive written procedures for its employees who interact with students and prospective students by telephone. NSAD employees are trained to use these procedures and record the do-not-call requests of consumers who no longer wish to receive telephone solicitation calls from NSAD. NSAD takes appropriate administrative actions against employees who violate company policy. NSAD also requires any third parties that assist with NSAD’s calling campaigns to follow company policy and applicable laws.

Do-Not-Call Requests
NSAD and its affiliates maintain internal do-not-call (DNC) lists that include specific requests from consumers who do not wish to be called. NSAD or an affiliate will purge from its calling list, upon request, any names and/or numbers on its institution-specific DNC list.  Please note that a DNC request made to one institution may not constitute a DNC request for all other institutions, so individual DNC requests may be required for each institution.

Any consumer can prohibit NSAD from calling by asking to be put on NSAD’s DNC list. A consumer’s do-not-call request will be recorded in our database within the legally mandated time frames. Federal regulations require NSAD to honor DNC requests within 30 days. DNC requests may be placed by sending an electronic mail notification to Please include your full name, address, and telephone number to ensure proper recording of your request.

Email Policy
NSAD and its affiliates believe that email is an effective tool for communicating with students and prospective students. We require that you provide your email address to us to receive information about our schools and programs. When you provide your email address to us, we will be able to interact with you in a way that is simple, convenient, and secure.

NSAD and its affiliates collect email addresses from online information request forms, returned business reply cards, application forms, and other sources. We use this information to contact students and prospective students about our schools and programs and for promotional purposes strictly related to the products and services of NSAD and its affiliates. We will never disguise the origin of our messages. When you receive messages from NSAD, you will be able to identify NSAD or one of its affiliates as the sender.

Each promotional message that we send will contain either a functioning email address or Internet-based mechanism that you can use to opt-out of receiving future promotional messages from NSAD or the NSAD affiliate from which the email came. In addition, you may submit an opt-out request by contacting and providing the email address that you would like to remove from our marketing database. Please include your full name, address and telephone number to ensure proper recording of your request. We will process your opt-out request within 10 business days. If you would like to resume receiving promotional messages from us or our affiliates after you have made an opt-out request, you must provide us with your express consent to receive such messages. Please note that an opt-out request made to one institution may not constitute an opt-out request for all other institutions, so individual opt-out requests may be required for each affiliate. 

At no time will we sell, share, or rent any email address that we have collected with third parties. We do not authorize the harvesting, mining or collection of email addresses or other information from or through our sites by third parties.

Copyrighted Materials and Peer-to-Peer File Sharing

NSAD respects intellectual property rights, including rights in the copyrighted materials of the institution, its students, faculty, and third parties. NSAD has implemented a comprehensive policy to help protect those rights and to comply with United States Copyright Law and the U.S. Higher Education Act’s peer-to-peer file sharing provisions. Strict compliance with NSAD’s policies is required of all NSAD students and employees. NSAD’s policies are reviewed annually to determine their effectiveness.

Copyright Law
Under U.S. Copyright Law (, the author of a creative work automatically owns the copyright in that work upon its creation. No formal registration is required; ownership is immediate. The author can transfer ownership of a copyright to another so the copyright owner may not be the original author of the work. Creative works include songs, stories, poems, paintings, photographs, or other works that contain a creative element. Ownership of the copyright gives the owner exclusive rights in that work such as the right to display, reproduce, transmit, create derivative works from, publicly perform, distribute, and license the creative work. This means that, absent permission from the creator, you may not take the creative work owned by another and exercise these rights. Such a violation is called “infringement” of the owner’s copyright. For example, if you legally purchase a music CD, you may not create copies of the music on that CD and distribute those copies to others over the Internet. Helping others to violate the owner’s copyright by making it easy for them to distribute such materials may also be illegal.

Actions and Penalties for Copyright Infringement
Under U.S. Copyright Law, a copyright owner who has been the victim of copyright infringement is entitled to recover actual damages and profits from the infringer or statutory damages of up to $30,000 per violation. The copyright owner has the right to permanently enjoin the infringer from further infringing activities.

NSAD, recognizing and respecting intellectual property rights, requires its employees, instructors, students, and other community members to use copyrighted materials in a lawful manner. NSAD’s Code of Conduct, as found in the NSAD’s Student Handbook (, presents NSAD’s copyright policy. Copyright infringement can result in applicants being rejected for admission and enrolled students and employees being dismissed.

Additionally, NSAD maintains a vigorous program of accepting and responding to Digital Millennium Copyright ACT (DMCA) notices, which are immediately escalated to NSAD’s legal team for investigation and action. If the materials in question are determined by the legal department to be infringing, the Information Technology department is notified and action is taken that can include either the removal of the infringing materials from NSAD’s network or the blocking of the infringer’s network access. The infringer is notified and reminded of NSAD’s Code of Conduct. Repeated violations can result in dismissal.
