On NCPHP.org, visitors can provide financial donations to support the organization. When you make a donation, we will ask you for some personal information, such as your name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number. We may then contact you with information about other NCPHP.

 

When you make a donation, we will also request financial information, such as your credit card number. Any financial information we collect is used only to complete the transaction of your donation. If you purchase by credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider.


Personal information users give us

We only have access to / collect information you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.


We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request.


Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about our services or changes to this privacy policy.

You may opt out of any future contact from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:

Security

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.


Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way using
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.


While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or processing donations) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Our NCPHP web site may contain links to web sites maintained by companies that are not affiliated with NCPHP. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those sites, and we encourage you to use caution when visiting them. In particular, we recommend you view the privacy policy posted on each site.
