Our Commitment to Your Privacy: We are sensitive to the privacy concerns of our donors and beneficiaries. We have a policy of protecting the confidentiality and security of information we collect about you. We are providing you this notice to help you better understand why and how we collect certain personal information, the care with which we treat that information, and how we use that information.
Sources of Non-Public Information: In connection with performing our mission as a nonprofit organization, we collect and maintain non-public personal information, including information regarding your finances, employment or other personal characteristics, from the following sources:
- Information received from donors and beneficiaries, in person, in conversations over the telephone, in voicemails, through written correspondence, via e-mail, or on forms or other submissions or from donations;
- Information about donors’ and beneficiaries’ transactions with NGS or others (such as donations received by us through third-party service providers), and
- Information captured on our website or other web services (e.g., social media), including registration information and any information captured via “cookies.”
Disclosure of Information: We do not disclose any non-public personal information about you without your consent to non-affiliated third parties, except as permitted by law or regulation and to service providers.
Former Donors and Beneficiaries: We maintain non-public personal information of our former donors and beneficiaries and apply the same policies that apply to current donors and beneficiaries.
Information Security: We consider the protection of sensitive information to be a sound business practice, and to that end we employ physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your non-public personal information in our possession or under our control.
Should we dispose of any non-public personal information we may obtain, we ensure that it is completely destroyed before disposal.
