The Indian Law Resource Center (Center) respects the privacy of our donors and those who visit our website.
Most of the information on indianlaw.org can be viewed without revealing or sharing any personal information. The only information we collect from normal website browsing is aggregate traffic data, such as visitors’ internet service providers, referral sites, pages viewed and when they were visited. We use this data measure and analyze the activity on indianlaw.org so we can improve the content and usefulness of the Center’s website for our visitors.
The Center collects and uses personal information that is voluntarily provided such as names, physical and email addresses, and phone numbers when making a donation, subscribing to our newsletter, or signing onto a petition or statement. We take the protection of your personal information seriously. The information you transmit to us through our website is encrypted. The third-party service providers we work with for processing online donations, for electronic marketing, and for electronic data storage use industry-accepted encryption technology and security protocols to help ensure the secure transmission and collection of private and sensitive information.
The information you provide us is used only for the stated purpose and stored in a secure location. We use internal access controls to further maintain your privacy and protect against misuse. Only designated employees who need the information to perform their duties and who are trained in the proper handling of such information have access to personal information.
While we take reasonable security precautions and do our best to protect the personal information that we collect and you provide to us, unfortunately no transmission of information over the internet is guaranteed to be 100% secure.
The Center will never share donor contact or giving information outside of the organization unless explicitly asked to do so. However, there are occasions, as part of our efforts to recognize and thank donors, when we publish or otherwise share the names of our donors. Donors who do not want their names shared publically or outside the organization should indicate that they want their gift to be anonymous. This can be done by using the designated check-off boxes that are included on the donation forms for our secure online giving portal and the direct mail communications that go out at least once a year. You can also notify us at any time that you would like to opt-out by contacting us via one of the methods below.
The Center’s online processing system allows you to make secure donations. We use a third party, Greater Giving, to process credit card donations. They collect your name, address, phone number, credit card number, and credit card expiration date to process your transaction. The input and transmission of cardholder information over the Internet is encrypted using strong, industry standard encryption technology. More information about Greater Giving’s security protocols can be found here: https://www.greatergiving.com/en/solutions/security-and-compliance
Electronic Newsletter and List-Serves
For those who subscribe or wish to subscribe to the Center’s electronic newsletter or a project list-serve, the Center collects an email address and also requests the name associated with the email account. Recipients may choose to unsubscribe at any time by using an unsubscribe link included in the email or by contacting us via one of the methods below.
The Center occasionally provides links to other web sites. The Center is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. Site visitors are encouraged to be aware when they leave www.indianlaw.org and to read the privacy statements of each web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by www.indianlaw.org.
Changes to this Policy
The Center reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without any obligation, to modify or correct any errors or omissions in written communications or in any portion of www.indianlaw.org. If our information practices change at some time in the future, we will post the policy changes to www.indianlaw.org to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of any new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check www.indianlaw.org periodically.
