What personally identifiable information is collected?
NGP members, volunteers and individuals who sign up to receive NGP’s e-communications voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We may use this information for specific, limited purposes. You may always “opt out,” either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages.
NGP may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic, and other purposes.
NGP may use “cookie” messages to automatically help provide better services. “Cookies” remind us who you are and your preferences for our website based on what you’ve done and told us before. The “cookie” is placed in your computer and is read when you come back to our website. “Cookies” let us take you to the information and features you’re particularly interested in. They also let us track your usage on NGP’s website, so we know which parts of our sites are most popular. You can reject “cookies” or cancel them by instructing your web browser accordingly.
How your information may be used
Your personal information may be used to provide you with personalized service; to send e-mail alerts to you; to answer your requests; to process your membership application; and other, similar purposes, consistent with NGP’s work and mission. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from us. We may also use your information to track visitor traffic on our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users’ needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties.
NGP does not provide, sell, or rent email addresses to anyone outside the organization.
NGP’s website may include links to external websites. These links do not fall under NGP’s domain, and NGP is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of external websites. Your use of any linked website is solely at your own risk.
