How NCLD Collects and Uses Visitor Information; Type of Information Collected

We may share your information with service providers, including, but not limited to, payment processors, technology and infrastructure providers, digital communications services, auditors and accountants, physical site security providers, IT security and functionality partners, and other providers who perform services for and on our behalf.
Visitors are required to provide certain personal information when they use our services and offerings (e.g., when registering for an event, completing a survey, or subscribing to our newsletter(s)). The information collected from visitors during the registration process is used to help us develop content for the Websites, collect audience information, and develop our online community, particularly for advocacy and fundraising purposes. As mentioned above, we may share this information with third party services providers.
We may release, share or disclose personal information provided by a user to the extent it is required to be disclosed pursuant to a valid government or court order or requirement of a governmental agency or court.
We may collect and use your IP addresses to analyze trends, administer our Websites, track users’ movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Sharing Aggregated Information
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and sponsors. This is not linked to any personal information that can be used by such partners or sponsors to identify any individual person. To opt out of having your information shared with partners and sponsors, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Privacy.” Please note that such opt out may limit our ability to interact with you or provide you with services.
About External Links and Partner Organizations
NCLD has partnered with other organizations and companies to provide certain services to NCLD and you, such as to engage in ecommerce transactions, to facilitate communications with our constituents, or to run scholarship programs, including, for example, via Open Water. In some cases, visitors may see NCLD’s logo on another organization or company’s site.

Voluntary Visitor/User Surveys
We may periodically conduct visitor surveys and we encourage our users to participate in them. We take the information we receive from individuals responding to these surveys and aggregate it with the responses of other visitors. This aggregated information is then used to improve the quality of our services and information to visitors, and to develop new services and products. Participation in our surveys is voluntary.

NCLD’s Commitment to Children’s Privacy

Protecting children’s privacy is especially important to us. We make every effort to ensure that our site is age-appropriate for our younger audience, but we believe that there is no substitute for proper parental supervision.

Finally, NCLD recommends that children ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to NCLD or to anyone else online, and any child under the age of 13 should not, in any circumstance or for any reason, submit any personal information through any of our Websites (as explained above).
