We collect and store only the following information about you: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account, or princeton.edu if you are connecting from Princeton University's domain), the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked to our site.
We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, and to help us make our site more useful to visitors.
Online Profile Updates and Donations
If you complete the profile update form and share personally identifying information, this information will be used only to provide you with more targeted content. We may use your contact information to send further information about our organization or to contact you when necessary. You may always opt out of receiving future mailings; see the "Opt Out" section below.
Sending us an Email
You also may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an electronic mail message containing a question or comment, or by filling out an online form that provides us this information. We use personally identifying information from email primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your email to other NAVS employees who are better able to answer your questions. We may also use your email to contact you in the future about our programs that may be of interest.
We want to be very clear: We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. We will not share your email address with any outside parties.
Opt-Out or Change Your Contact Information
Our website provides users the opportunity to opt out of receiving communications from us through a special online form. You may choose to receive only specific e-communications or none at all.

NAVS also participates in postal mailing list exchanges and may, on occasion, share your postal mailing information via trade, rental or purchase with other non-profit organizations whose missions we feel complement ours. If you wish to have your name and mailing information excluded from such exchanges, you may do so by contacting us at 800-888-NAVS (6287) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
