What Information NWLC Collects and How It Uses That Information:
NWLC’s registration forms for its advocacy network, to purchase NWLC materials, or to donate to NWLC require you to give it contact information that may include name, email address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, and similar information. NWLC may also obtain information regarding your use of the Sites and their offerings. NWLC uses this information to fulfill your requests with respect to NWLC’s offerings, support the activities of NWLC and improve its Sites and offerings. If you sign up for the advocacy network, NWLC may from time to time use your e-mail address to contact you regarding NWLC and issues and activities of likely interest to you. NWLC does not share or sell its lists of contacts gathered online or lists of donors who have given online or offline with other organizations, except, in certain instances, with NWLC’s affiliated organization, the National Women’s Law Center Action Fund, and third-party vendors as described below. From time to time, NWLC may send you materials by U.S. Postal Service mail when it thinks they may be of interest you. However, if you do not wish to receive materials by U.S. mail, you can let NWLC know by checking off a box at the end of the sign-up forms.
NWLC on occasion uses third-party vendors to provide services to its Sites or to NWLC. These services can include processing credit card transactions, fulfillment of merchandise requests, or facilitating fundraising campaigns. Information you provide on NWLC’s Sites may be provided to these vendors on a confidential basis solely for the purpose of providing these services
If you elect to use NWLC’s referral service for informing a friend about NWLC’s Sites, NWLC asks that you provide the friend’s name and email address. NWLC will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting her or him to visit the Site(s). NWLC does not store this information beyond the time it takes to send this one-time email.
