We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to/from our website nor the information contained therein. Often links to other websites are provided solely as a way for the user to obtain information that may be useful to them. The third party’s privacy policy and/or that of its service provider will govern the use of this information and we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such companies.

Online Donations

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.

Security Measures

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. The encrypted data goes to a physically secure location where your information is stored on restricted-access computers located at restricted-access sites.

No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. As a result, while we try to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information transmitted to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk. You are responsible for keeping information you provide confidential. You may not provide these credentials to any third party. We are not responsible if someone else accesses your account through information they have obtained from you or through a violation by you of this Privacy Policy. By using the website or providing personal information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the website.

Retention of Your Information

Information you provide to NFBPWC will be retained for no longer than reasonably necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was obtained, or for a period specifically required by law or regulation. Your information will be disposed of in a manner that seeks to prevent loss, theft, misuse, or unauthorized access.

Children Under 13

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.

For EU Data Subjects

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.

Updates to Our Privacy Policy

NFBPWC may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. NFBPWC will notify you by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page and we will update the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy. You are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page.
