Personal Information Collected
Through Nonprofit Connect's member database, we collect and store contact information from individuals as it is knowingly provided to us, including email addresses. We do not distribute personal information or email addresses to third parties. We use this information to contact individuals via email and mail with additional resources that might be of interest, including upcoming programs or other resources. You may choose at any time not to provide personally identifiable information, although this may restrict our ability to provide requested services or information.
The following are examples of personally identifiable information that you may volunteer to provide and examples of how we use such information.
Organizational Information Collected
- Email Addresses - Nonprofit Connect collects email addresses from those that create online accounts, subscribe to emails, register for events. We may use your email address to send you emails from Nonprofit Connect, including marketing emails, member updates, or email newsletters. To edit your email preferences or unsubscribe, log in to the Member Information Center, or contact us. Nonprofit Connect does not distribute email addresses to third parties.
- Mailing Addresses - Nonprofit Connect collects mailing addresses of those that register for events or purchase items from our eLearning Center. We only distribute publicly available organizational addresses, and in doing so does not associate individual names, except main contacts, to third parties.
Nonprofit Connect makes organizational contact information available through our online Member Directory. We also occasionally make mailing lists of nonprofit organizations available to third parties. These lists are limited to organization names and postal addresses.
Any organization may request their information be omitted from lists provided to third parties by contacting us and expressing its preference not to have its information shared.
