NAQT collects data on schools who participate in academic competition, and coaches, players, and other personnel, from a variety of sources. We use the data to help those and other schools find out about quiz bowl opportunities, including local tournaments, national championships, practice material, and other topics of interest.
Contact information for some people (including coaches) is available on the NAQT website and may be sent directly to directors of tournaments using NAQT questions and to NAQT’s organizational partners for the purpose of promoting quiz bowl.
NAQT may issue press releases about its tournaments that may include names, statistics, affiliations, and photographs of coaches, team contacts, and players.
NAQT honors requests from individuals to remove themselves (and only themselves) from our marketing lists. Such requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
NAQT posts results from tournaments. We are committed to preserving the history of quiz bowl and do not generally remove results. We may suppress results in extraordinary cases involving legal orders or the reasonable expectation of physical harm. We do not suppress results that are disappointing to or supposedly unrepresentative of a school or competitor. Contact email@example.com if you have an extremely compelling reason why certain results should be suppressed.
NAQT collects data on how its website is used so that we can understand our customers’ (and prospective customers’) needs, make it more useful, fix bugs, and otherwise improve the site. We do not share individual data with anyone else, although we use Google Analytics, so that service has access to the data. We may share aggregate data (e.g. total number of visitors in a given time period) with prospective sponsors or other organizations.
