Our Commitment To Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our home page and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested. If we change our privacy notice, we will post those changes prominently so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone.

The Information We Collect:

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the Native American Rights Fund website. On some pages, you can make requests, and register to receive materials or make a donation. The types of personal information collected at these pages are:

E-mail address
Phone number
Credit/Debit Card Information

The Way We Use Information:

We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

We use return e-mail addresses to answer the e-mail we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

You can register with our web site if you would like to receive E-action notices or Indian law bulletins from the National Indian Law Library. Information you submit on our web site will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. No data transmission over the Internet, however, is 100% secure; and no data storage method can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Luminate Online: Areas of our site for donations, E-action, and store purchases are hosted by Convio. This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under their control. They use industry-standard SSL encryption to scramble credit card information on the way from the shopper to their server. Their servers are protected and require user authentication for access.

Online Library Catalog (powered by Softlink): Emails that you send to yourself about your catalog search results are not encrypted, but the Email is transmitted through a secure portion of Softlink's site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Softlink.

Reftracker: Requests sent to askNILL (library reference service) are not encrypted, but the request is placed on a secure, password protected server portion of Altarama's site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of the National Indian Law Library at NARF and Altarama Information Systems. Employees of Altarama and NARF agree to keep all patron requests confidential.

Emailing the Webmaster: Emails that you send to NARF are not encrypted. They are stored on a secure, password protected server and only authorized personnel have access to any information sent in an Email.

Our Commitment To Children's Privacy:

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our web site from those we actually know are under 16, and no part of our web site is structured to attract anyone under 16.

How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information:

You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by contacting the Native American Rights Fund development office. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information.

You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error.

To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.

How To Contact Us:

Should you have other questions or concerns about these privacy policies, please call us at 303-447-8760 or send us an e-mail at webmaster@narf.org.
