All emergency contact phone data will be used only for the NLU Emergency Notification system.

In order to ensure your privacy, any phone information that you provide for use by the Emergency Notification Service will not be used for any other purpose, by NLU or anyone else. In addition, we would like to assure you that the service will only be used in situations which require urgent communication to the NLU Community. We plan to test the Notification Service once per academic year, so any charges that you incur from receiving text messages or cell phone calls should be minimal.

Though we do not recommend that you do so, you may opt out of the Emergency Notification System simply by removing the Emergency Notification Address and Phone entry in NLU Self-Service through the portal.
