NAFSA Donor Privacy Policy


This section of our Privacy Policy relates specifically to donors. Read our website privacy policy here.

This privacy policy applies to collection of information, including information collected on our website. By submitting your information to us or any of our staff, you consent to the terms and conditions of the policy and to our processing personal information for the purposes stated below.

What Information Does NAFSA Collect?

Most data NAFSA collects are used only to help NAFSA better serve its members. It is our general policy to collect and store only information that our members and visitors knowingly provide.

NAFSA Members, Conference Registrants, and Other Logged In Visitors

To gain access to certain resources and personalization features on the NAFSA website, members and other visitors are asked to register and provide general contact information. These data are submitted voluntarily.

Users may request that NAFSA refrain from disclosing to third parties the data it collects on its membership application form or any other form on which users are providing information.  Users can opt-out in the Settings section of their NAFSA Passport account.

How Does NAFSA Use Data Collected?

Generally, NAFSA uses data collected to improve its own web content; to respond to members' interests, needs and preferences; and to develop new products and services. NAFSA reports donor information as required by federal, state, and local laws.

Credit Card Account Information

When members or visitors provide credit card account information to NAFSA or its agents (publishing house, registration processing company, etc.), NAFSA submits the information needed to obtain payment to the appropriate financial institution. NAFSA does not further disclose credit card account information obtained from members or visitors.

Except as described in this Privacy Policy or at the time we request the information, we do not otherwise disclose your personal information to any third parties. Further, NAFSA will not sell or trade your personally identifiable information to any third parties.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we do, we will note the last update at the bottom of this Privacy Policy. For changes to this policy that may be materially less restrictive on our use or disclosure of your personally identifiable information, we will obtain your consent before implementing the change by sending a notice to your primary email address and home address specified in our records and by placing a prominent notice on our website.
