Privacy Policy

This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for The NonprofitCenters Network ("NCN").

NCN is sincerely commitment to your privacy. This statement explains what personally identifiable information we collect, how it's used and shared, what choices you have in disclosing your information, security, and how you can correct inaccuracies.

Information Collection and Use

NCN and its project sponsor, Tides, Inc. is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. NCN collects information from our users at several different points on our website.

Center Profiles & Resource Submission

In using this website, a user may input information into a new Center Profile or upload a resource for our Online Resource Center. During these processes a user is required to give their contact information (such as email address). This information is used to contact users and verify the authenticity of the information they have submitted. We will only use it when necessary. You will also have the option at that time to join our email mailing list. It is optional for users to provide additional personal information.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. We use cookies to store your login information on your computer. You can access much of our site without cookies, but there are some areas such as profile submission or project information that require cookies. However, we do not use cookies to track your browsing history or match it with your identity for any purpose such as market research or advertising.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Sharing

We may share aggregated demographic information with funders and other organizations. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

Security

This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. This web site does not collect sensitive information such as credit card numbers or social security numbers. Resource submission and Center Profile entry does not use encryption or SSL and users should be aware that it is possible for information submitted to be intercepted by other parties.

Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our organizational administrators and webmasters) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to info(at)nonprofitcenters.org.

Membership

We work with PayPal's secure site to collect credit card payments for membership. PayPal will not sell, share, or rent information they collect on our behalf in ways different than what is disclosed in this statement. See www.paypal.com for their complete privacy policy.

It is also important to note, confidentiality clauses are included in all agreements with other entities and independent consultants who provide services to us or make products and services available to you. Under such an agreement, these service providers may receive information about you, but they may only use it for the limited purpose of advancing the mission of The NonprofitCenters Network and they are restricted from using this information for any other purpose.

Links

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that NCN is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Email Newsletter

We send our email newsletter to those users who have signed up to be on our mailing list. Every email from NCN contains an option for the user to unsubscribe.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
