Normal website usage
The Native American Rights Fund has a firm commitment to internet privacy. You can visit most portions of our sites without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. The only information we collect from a normal web site visit are aggregate traffic data statistics like the names of users’ internet service providers, browsers and types of machines being used, the website that referred to us, the pages requested and the date and time they were requested. This information is gathered using cookies (see side bar for more information about cookies) and is not personally identifiable/anonymous. We use this information to generate website traffic statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of the site to our visitors.
Electronic postcard feature:
If you choose to send an electronic postcard from our site, we ask for an email address to send the card. That email address is used only for sending the e-card and is not used by NARF in any other way.
“Remember me” feature:
On some of our forms, we offer an optional “remember me” feature that can recall your information for greater ease on subsequent visits to the site. NARF does not collect or use any information from this feature.
Collection and use of personally identifiable information
The Native American Rights Fund may collect name, address, email addresses and other personally identifiable data when such data is voluntarily submitted.
For example, our site uses forms for visitors to request information, products, and services, or to make a donation. Contact information from the form is used to send orders and information about NARF to our visitors. Financial information is used to bill visitors in connection with their orders and donations.
NARF is committed to properly securing the personal information that we collect. To help us accomplish this, we employ internal access controls. For example, the only people who see our donors’ information are those with a need to do so to perform their official duties. We use technical controls to secure the information that we collect, including but not limited to Secure Socket Layer (SSL), encryption, firewalls, and password protection. NARF uses industry-accepted data collection and encryption methodologies to ensure the secure collection and transmission of sensitive user information. While we try our best to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
We occasionally have third parties perform services on our behalf, such as marketing, analytics, credit card processing, shipping, etc. These third parties have access to your personal information only as needed to perform their services for the Native American Rights Fund and are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of the personal information.
We may also use or disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on us or this site; (b) protect and defend our rights or property, this site or our users, and (c) act under emergency circumstances to protect the personal safety of us, our affiliates, agents, site users, or the public.
NARF does not sell or otherwise disclose your personal information outside the organization without your permission. We do not share any personal information collected on our website without offering you the option to opt-out. Individuals who respond to our print mailings and donations forms also have the option to opt-out of sharing their personal information such as name and mailing address with other organizations that we think may be of interest to our donors. At any time, you also may opt out of such list exchanges by following these opt-out procedures:
