NERA considers the privacy of its clients, registered users, and all site visitors to be of utmost importance and works diligently to protect it. NERA has helped shape "how markets work" around the world for more than 45 years. As advisor to and expert witness on behalf of some of the world's most challenging economic issues, NERA has designed this website with the intention of broadening the thinking of our visitors about the power and potential of economics. NERA wants you to feel secure when visiting our site; we are committed to maintaining your privacy when doing so.

The steps that NERA takes to respect client privacy while collecting data from use of our website are:

  1. NERA does not make any user data available to third parties other than our parent company, Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. and its subsidiaries. We do not sell lists, accept advertising, or generate any third-party revenue from the data that is generated on this site.
  2. NERA collects information from users to help us understand who is using the site and why. NERA regularly collects and analyzes data pertaining to user trends, information consumption, and feedback in order to understand the various segments of our visitor audience. This enables us to tailor and improve the targeted nature of our information and services, plan appropriate site enhancements, and measure overall site effectiveness. We consider this data to be confidential information.
  3. To encourage our consultants and staff to respond to visitor inquiries and feedback from various locations on NERA.com (including AskNERA, Ask the Expert, the Press Room) names and e-mail addresses of visitors that use those features are forwarded to assigned NERA staff members along with the inquiry submitted by the visitor and the contact method and information voluntarily supplied.
