II. PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH THE WEBSITE
Individuals who register at the Network’s website, www.nfnetwork.org, and who sign up to receive the Network’s e-communications voluntarily provide the Network with contact information. The Network uses this information for specific, limited purposes only, such as notifying registrants about upcoming fundraising events, educational programs, advocacy deadlines and research updates. Registrants may always “opt-out”/unsubscribe if they wish to discontinue electronic communication.
The Network may also use Internet Protocol addresses for statistical metrics for the purpose of tracking website visitor traffic. In that case, aggregate data does not necessarily identify users personally, but rather relies on the number of visitors to its website.
III. PROTECTING PERSONAL INFORMATION
The Network’s website is monitored on a regular basis for security gaps and known vulnerabilities in order to make users’ visits to the site as safe as possible. This includes regular malware scanning and taking other security measures that are implemented by a limited number of select persons.
IV. EMAIL PRIVACY
The Network does not provide, sell or rent email addresses to any individual or business outside the organization.
V. EXTERNAL LINKS
The Network’s website includes links to external websites. These links do not fall within its domain, and the Network is not responsible for the privacy practices of these external sites. Users’ connection to linked websites is at their own risk. Nevertheless, the Network welcomes any feedback about these sites.
The Network utilizes CapWiz software for its advocacy program. The main function of CapWiz is to facilitate individuals’ communication with their elected officials on issues pertinent to the Network. It is of paramount importance to the Network that the names and addresses of the individuals collected by CapWiz be protected. To that end, the Network does not disseminate it to outside individuals or businesses. The data is used primarily by the Network to track the number of emails sent by activists to their elected officials. On occasion, the Network may find it necessary to use the contact information itself, but such information will be used strictly for advocacy purposes.
VII. CREDIT CARD ACCOUNT INFORMATION
The Network utilizes secure transaction methods when collecting credit card information over the internet. The Network does not disclose to any third parties credit card information provided by any visitors to its website.
