The National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) values the privacy of our Internet visitors. NLPC does not sell, trade or share a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor do we send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. NLPC will only share personal information once the donor has given us specific permission to do so.

When you visit, we do not obtain your email address unless you manually send it to us by, for example, using the contact form or making an online donation. Because some software collects it automatically, we do obtain some IP addresses. They are not shared with any third party.

The IP address of website visitors is not apparent to other visitors and can only be accessed with the use of a password, which is solely available to the to NLPC staff. Software programs also in some cases collect the name of the ISP visitors are using (for examples, AOL or Earthlink). This data is also kept under secure password.
