Anonymous Information: When you visit any of NPSF’s websites to read or download information, we collect and store only the following information: the name of the domain from which you accessed the Internet; the date and time you accessed our website; and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our website. None of this information can be used to personally identify you.

Personally Identifiable Information: The only personally identifiable information NPSF collects is information you provide to NPSF when you join one of our membership programs or complete one of the forms on our websites. Alternatively, individuals may also use these forms to make contributions to NPSF, or to sign up for our e-Newsletter. The types of personal information NPSF collects vary by form and may include your name, mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, credit/debit card information and answers to survey questions.

How We Use Information

NPSF uses the anonymous information it collects to gauge website traffic, determine its most popular pages, and evaluate its website.

NPSF does not share, distribute, sell or rent e-mail addresses or other personally identifiable information with any outside entities except as noted below.

You can opt out of NPSF e-mail communications at any time. Each e-mail NPSF sends will indicate how to unsubscribe from the list via e-mail or via a Webpage.

Third-Party Access to Personally Identifiable Information

NPSF only provides personally identifiable information to its website service providers: PayPal, Authorize.net, and warehouses responsible for shipping customer products. Information is shared on a strictly confidential basis to enable order fulfillment and to allow the platforms to maintain a payment database, send e-mail messages and provide other website-related services for NPSF.

Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, NPSF has put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We store your personally identifiable information on secure servers. Our third-party vendors accept credit card donations only via a secure server.

However, please be aware that no security measures are completely effective, and we cannot guarantee there will be no unauthorized access or data breach. Persons submitting information or otherwise using this site assume these risks.

NPSF’s websites uses cookies, or tiny pieces of information stored on your computer, to verify who you are.

Changes in Our Privacy Policy

Should our practices change, this notice will be immediately updated. Regardless of later updates, we will never use the information you submit under this current notice in a new way (in a way not described in this notice) without first providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prevent that use.
