Donor Privacy Policy

Introduction

The National Constitution Center (“NCC”) is an independent nonprofit organization classified as a tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The NCC is the only institution in America chartered by Congress to disseminate information about the United States Constitution on a nonpartisan basis.

This Donor Privacy Policy describes the NCC’s current policies and practices with regard to the Personal Information we collect from our donors, volunteers, and supporters. This Donor Privacy Policy shall apply to the collection of information, both online and offline, including information collected thorough our Website, mobile applications, and social media, as well as any other electronic, written, or oral communications. By submitting your information to the NCC, you consent to the terms and conditions of this Donor Privacy Policy, as well as those stated in the NCC’s Privacy Policy, incorporated herein by this reference, and to our using and processing Personal Information for the purposes stated below.

The NCC understands that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public. To this end, all NCC donors are entitled to information about the organization’s mission, the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes. The NCC also assures that information about donations will be handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.

Personal Information

The information the NCC collects and maintains includes, but is not limited to, the following types of Personal Information when it is voluntarily provided to us:

  • Contact information such as name, address, telephone number and e-mail address
  • Gift giving information (including payment information)
  • Information on events attended, publications received and special requests for information related to the NCC or its programs
  • Information provided in the form of comments and suggestions

Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

The NCC uses Personal Information to provide our donors, volunteers, and supporters with better service and with information about the NCC’s events and support/volunteer opportunities. Payment information collected is used only for donation or payment processing and is not retained for other purposes.

The NCC will not sell, rent, or lease your Personal Information to other organizations. Use of your Personal Information by the NCC will be limited to internal purposes and only to further the organization’s activities. We occasionally make portions of our member lists available for one-time use to other non-profit organizations, which do the same for us, in an effort to help the NCC grow. To opt out, please contact NCC Membership at 215-409-6767 or [email protected].

Discontinuing Contact Upon Request

The NCC will discontinue or change the method used to contact any person, including donors, volunteers, and supporters, as soon as possible upon that person’s oral or written request.

The NCC will maintain an electronic record of all requests for discontinuance of contact, whether written or oral, effective with the adoption of this Donor Privacy Policy.  The NCC will maintain records to the extent necessary for legal or liability purposes.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

As the NCC grows or laws change, we may need to update or revise this Donor Privacy Policy. Accordingly, we reserve the right to update or modify this Donor Privacy Policy at any time, without prior notice, by posting the revised version of this Donor Privacy Policy on our Website at constitutioncenter.org.
