Notwithstanding our security safeguards, it is impossible to guarantee 100% security in all circumstances. If you have any questions about security on our site, you can contact our privacy office at webmaster@newportprivategroup.com.

Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or prompt you before accepting a cookie from the sites you visit.

Retention and Storage

We will retain your Personal Information in our databases in accordance with our Records Management Policy and applicable laws. This period may extend beyond the end of your relationship with us, but it will be only as long as it is necessary for us to have sufficient information to respond to any issues that may arise later.

Newport Private Group assumes no liability for the loss of any information that you transmit to us via the World Wide Web.

In communicating with you, we may send e-mail as unencrypted plain text because we are aware that most Members and Guests cannot readily process encrypted e-mail.

You can access your Personal Information in Account Settings and update it or delete inaccuracies, as necessary. For example, you can change at any time your e-mail address or your preferences.
