Privacy policy

NTEN is committed to protecting the privacy of people in our community, our members, and our website users.

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.

What information do we collect?

Information you provide

When you create an account on an NTEN website, sign up to receive NTEN emails or electronic newsletters, create a community profile, register for events, or use Tech Accelerate, you voluntarily provide us with personal information (such as name and email address). When you visit NTEN’s website, your browser may automatically send an Internet Protocol (IP) address and other user information, such as the browser you use. We may use this information for specific, limited purposes that are outlined below. You may opt out, either now or at any time in the future if you do not wish to receive our messages. You may also ask us to anonymize your personal data.

IP addresses

NTEN uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer websites, tailor content to your location, and for metrics used to track website visitor traffic.


NTEN websites and apps use cookies to automatically help provide better services. They remind us who you are and your preferences for our website based on website actions and transactions. The cookie is placed in your computer and is read when you come back to our website. Cookies let us take you to the information and features you’re particularly interested in, and we use them to serve you ads in other networks. They also let us track your usage of our sites, so we know which parts of our sites are most popular. You can reject cookies or cancel them by instructing your web browser accordingly.

How do we use this information?

Community profiles

NTEN maintains community profiles for the purpose of helping people in our community connect with one another and to manage memberships. When you join our community or become a member at an NTEN website, information including your name, organization, mailing address, phone, and email address are added to your community profile. You may change which information is shown to other people who use our online groups or tech clubs by changing the privacy settings in your profile.

Nonprofit Technology Conference

The names of all registrants to the Nonprofit Technology Conference will be listed in the NTC conference platform and app. Attendees are able to change which information is shown to other people by changing the privacy settings in their profile.

Accessibility requests and related information are stored only in our database's event registration record. We will request your permission before we connect you with our accessibility service providers, or you can opt to meet them only during the NTC. 

Email communications

We publish marketing emails to share announcements with our community about NTEN events, programs, services, and more. The community platform also sends automated emails, including digests for online groups and tech clubs you join. Any data we gather about your email communications behavior (such as opens and clicks) is used only to help us send you the most relevant communications. 

NTEN does not provide, sell, or rent email addresses or other communications data to anyone outside the organization for any price at any time, although we may occasionally send an announcement, event, or product offering that we think may be of interest on behalf of a partner. We also provide the opportunity for you to opt-in for communications from vendors and conference exhibitors.

For marketing emails, you may unsubscribe or update your email preferences any time using the link included at the bottom of every email, by visiting the subscription preferences webpage, or by contacting us ( or +1 503-272-8800).

For emails from the community platform, you may unsubscribe or update your email preferences by changing the notification preferences in your community profile, in a specific online group or tech club you joined, or by contacting us ( or +1 503-272-8800).

Tech Accelerate

By using Tech Accelerate you share, at a minimum, your name, the organization’s name, and your email address. Additionally, to submit an assessment for processing, we require certain data about your organization. We use this data anonymously to benchmark your organization against others who have participated in Tech Accelerate. This data includes but is not limited to:

  • Organization’s core work, such as programs and services.
  • Total number of employees.

Data shared through Tech Accelerate is anonymized before it is aggregated. In some cases however, you may be asked to share your data with a sponsoring organization. In these cases, while the data is still anonymized, it is aggregated into a smaller result set and specifically shared with the sponsoring organization. Individual answers to assessment questions are used to generate a custom report specific to your organization.
