Privacy Policy

Equality NC is committed to protecting your privacy online.

While using our website, you do not have to identify yourself or divulge personal information. If you should choose to give us your personal information, you decide the amount of information you provide.

Our organization is continually trying to expand online activism and to give online users like you the information they need in a timely manner. As a result, we may periodically ask you to provide information such as your name, address, phone number and email address in an effort to enhance your online experience. If you choose not to give us any information, we may not be able to provide you with timely information regarding events and issues important to you.

Equality NC maintains several interconnected websites at any given time. The principal website Equalitync.org is permanent. Other issue-specific websites may be created and removed as needed to highlight important campaigns, issues and events.

Our site may link to a limited number of other websites. Equality NC is not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of these websites.

The Equalitync.org privacy policy may be amended by Equality NC at any time without notice other than posting of such amendments on this site.

Equality NC will not sell your email address or other personal information to an outside, unaffiliated organization or any unauthorized third parties.

When You Contribute Money Online

When you contribute online, Equalitync.org uses state-of-the-art security protocols to protect sensitive data, such as personal information and credit card numbers. While this data is being transferred, it is protected by the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) using a 128-bit signed certificate (the highest level commercially available). You information sits behind an electronic firewall and is not directly connected to the Internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.

When You Sign Up for One of Our Mailing Lists

We collect your name, contact information, and email address, and certain other information. We use your email address to send you the email newsletter to which you subscribed. You may remove your email address from that subscriber list by visiting the unsubscribe page for that list.

When You Fill Out One of Our Surveys

Your opinion matters to Equality NC and we want your input. As a result, we may sometimes use surveys to help us understand which issues you are interested in.

IP Addresses and Log File Data

We log IP addresses, which is the location of your computer or network on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. We also use page hits in the aggregate to track the popularity of pages that people visit in order to improve the quality of the site. There is no personal identifiable information collected in our log files.

Information on Children

Because we care about the safety and privacy of children online, we comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulations establish United States federal law that protects the privacy of children using the Internet. We do not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13. Our site is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13, and we have designed our sites to block our knowing acceptance of information from children under 13 whenever age-related information is requested.

Contacting Us About Privacy

If you have any questions about our privacy policy, the information we have collected from you online, the practices of this site or your interaction with this website, send email to info@equalitync.org.
