Privacy Policy for nten.org

What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information:
Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, e-mail address, address, interests, and similar information.

  • We do not store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers.
  • We will never sell your information to a third party.
  • We will never share your information with a third party without your permission

Use by NTEN:

When you create an account with NTEN you may receive occasional emails from us updating you on noteworthy developments in nonprofit technology. If you do not wish to hear from us, simply use the unsubscribe feature on these emails and/or contact us directly.


All information provided to NTEN is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our Site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of NTEN. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.

Other Web Sites:

Our Site contains links to other Web sites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another Web site for which NTEN has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may be different than ours.

Member Directory:

NTEN maintains a member directory for the purpose of helping members of our community connect with one another. If you are a current NTEN member, other current NTEN members have access to the complete directory which includes your name, organization, mailing address, phone, fax, and email address. If you do not want to be included in the member directory, you may email us and ask to be removed.

Conference Privacy:

All registrants will be able to create a profile in the online NTC community, choosing what contact information to make available. The purpose of the online community for the NTC is to encourage networking and individual follow up. The online community is not to be used for unsolicited commercial or bulk-message purposes, and messages should be sent within the system (no scraping of contact information).

All Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC) registrants will be added to the NTC mobile app, though email addresses are not visible available to anyone directly. If you do not wish to be listed in the app, please email us to remove your information from the app.

The below Terms of Use apply to the conference website, conference discussions, on-site conference events, and all NTEN programs.

Use of any contact information found on NTEN’s websites for commercial purposes without the express consent of the person you are trying to contact is forbidden and frowned upon.
  3. not to solicit cash donations for organizations or individuals. Offers for in-kind donations of either products or services are fine, of course.

3. Volunteer Policy

NTEN does not allow community members with pending criminal charges to serve as NTEN volunteers (i.e. tech club organizer, committee member, etc.). Should a volunteer come to have criminal charges against them, the volunteer should notify NTEN (NTEN CEO, Amy Sample Ward, is the point of contact for these matters) immediately and the volunteer role will discontinue immediately.

Though the volunteer role will no longer be applicable, the volunteer is welcome to attend NTEN events as a community member. Individuals facing charges may keep NTEN informed of any changes to their status; and if charges are cleared can have the opportunity to serve as an volunteer.
