Our privacy policy

Northwest Resource Associates is committed to maintaining a website that protects the individual's right to privacy. We do not require personal information from our visitors, nor do we collect any personally identifying information (name, email address, Social Security number, or other unique identifier) unless you knowingly provide it. Likewise, we do not give, sell, or transfer any personal information to a third party except as might be required by law.

Data collection for statistics

To aid in website management, certain information is collected for statistical purposes. Northwest Resource Associates uses specialized software to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing what information is of most and least interest to our customers, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.

We collect only the following information about your visit:

  • The name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, "princeton.edu" if you are connecting from Princeton University's domain, or "aol.com" if you are connecting from an America Online account);
  • The website from which you linked directly to our website, if you have used another website to reach our site;
  • The operating system and web browser you use to view pages;
  • The date and time you access our website.

We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our website, allowing us to make our website more useful and accessible to visitors. We do not store any personal identifiers.

Information collected from emails and forms

You may decide to send us personally identifying information through e-mail messages or through online forms. Electronic communication allows us to collect information that will improve our website for you, and we encourage it. We use personally-identifying information from consumers in various ways to further our customer's protection and to provide better service. This may be to correct broken links that you have identified or provide additional information that you have requested.

If a visitor chooses to use a credit card to make a donation or purchase, this information is stored in a secure environment and the information is used solely for its intended purpose.
