The NCPPR website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize NCPPR pages, or register with NCPPR site or services, a cookie helps NCPPR to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same NCPPR website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the NCPPR features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the NCPPR services or websites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
NCPPR secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

Effective as of December 01, 2016
List rentals and exchanges: The National Center for Public Policy Research periodically permits other appropriate non-profit organizations to mail certain lists of our donors, primarily through list exchanges as a means of obtaining new donors to support National Center programs. These exchanges are on a one-to-one basis, for one-time use, and require the consent of either the president or chairman of The National Center.
Only names and addresses are provided in such exchanges. All other data is kept in the strictest confidence.
To ensure that donors are not sent more mail than authorized, every list The National Center ships contains unique markers permitting use to be tracked. The National Center will take legal action for compensation, damages and legal fees for any unauthorized use of any of its donor lists.
If you are a National Center donor and you prefer that your name and address not be included in such list trades or rentals, you may inform us by e-mail by clicking here. Please include your name and address.
To be removed from mailing lists: If you wish to be removed from our mail solicitation lists, please click here. Please include your name and mailing address in your e-mail correspondence. For name/address changes or other concerns, please click here.
These requests also may be facilitated by writing us at: National Center for Public Policy Research, 20 F Street NW, Suite 700, Washington, DC 20001, or faxing us at (301) 498-1301, or calling (202) 507-6398.
To ensure that we respect the wishes of our donors, all requests must be made either by the donor or a legally-appointed representative of the donor. If you are a donor’s legal representative, include a copy of your Power of Attorney when e-mailing, faxing or writing us on the donor’s behalf. If we do not receive this documentation, we have no way to know if a person purporting to be speaking on a donor’s behalf has the permission of the donor to do so.
Those who wish to continue receiving solicitations from The National Center, but wish to reduce either the frequency of such mailings or specify specific times of year they wish to receive them, may inform us of their wishes using any of the means indicated above.
Additional information: The National Center also periodically (at least annually) provides in written appeals to donors the opportunity to express their preference with regard to sharing their contact information with other organizations. Internally, confidential donor information is protected in numerous ways: 1. Only personnel with direct fundraising responsibilities have access to our donor database; 2. The National Center has software that records details on every list exported from our database, including the identity of the staff member accessing the list; 3. All National Center employees are required to sign a legally-binding non-disclosure agreement as a condition of employment; 4. The National Center’s database contains a mixture of “decoys,” including paid monitors; family, friends and associates of The National Center; donor volunteers permitting us to track unauthorized use. These decoys, some of whom are only known to the president of The National Center, provide regular reports to the president on the mail they receive; 5. Any employee found sharing confidential donor lists without authorization will be terminated immediately and will face legal action.
The National Center will not divulge ANY information about a donor’s giving history to anyone other than the donor, the donor’s legally-appointed representative, or government agencies as required by law.
Telephone solicitations: The National Center for Public Policy Research does not conduct telephone solicitation efforts, so there is no need to contact us if you do not wish to be telephoned as part of a National Center telephone solicitation campaign.
Legal notice: All privacy policies are subject to laws, subpoenas, government regulations and court orders, and also are subject to change.
