Visitors to our website who make monetary contributions through our website are asked to provide information. We will not share, sell or exchange donor’s information for third party’s fundraising or marketing purposes.
NFBPWC takes appropriate precautions to protect our website visitors' information. Our website use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal or sensitive information is required. This encryption allows your data to be safely transmitted over the Internet without being intercepted, read, altered, or deleted by a malicious third party.

NFBPWC does not specifically or knowingly collect information about children. If we learn that we have collected information from a child under the age of 13 without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers. In some instances, we may use that information only to respond directly to that child (or his/her/their parent or legal guardian) to inform the minor that he/she/they cannot use the services.
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation and other countries’ privacy laws provide certain rights for data subjects. Because NFBPWC is not established in the European Union, these rights only apply in relation to NFBPWC offering goods or services to data subjects in the European Union, or in relation to NFBPWC monitoring behavior in the European Union. Among these rights is the right to know the purpose of the processing; the categories of personal information concerned; who else outside of NFBPWC might have received the data from us; what the source of the information was (if you did not provide it directly to us); and how long the information will be stored. Additionally, you have the right to access and rectify your personal information if it is inaccurate. You may, under certain circumstances, request that we cease using your data for direct marketing purposes, or that we erase your data. You may, under certain circumstances, also have the right to data portability, withdraw consent at any time, and object to processing. You may also have a right to lodge a complaint with the appropriate data protection authority if you have concerns about how we process your personal information. We will, at your request, provide personal information that you have provided to NFBPWC to you or transmit it directly to another controller if technically feasible.
