Privacy Policy

Effective September 28, 2020

First Nations Development Institute (First Nations) respects the privacy of its donors and visitors to our website. Our Privacy Policy was adopted to ensure that we honor your wishes.

First Nations reserves the right to modify the terms of our Privacy Policy and will post those changes on our website. Modifications are deemed to be in effect at the time that they are posted. By using our website, you expressly consent to this Privacy Policy and any updates.

General Collection, Use and Protection of Personal Information:

First Nations collects and uses personal information such as: name, address, phone number, and email address when it is voluntarily provided to us. This information may be provided when making a donation, requesting information or registering to download materials. The information you transmit to us on this site is encrypted. The companies we work with to process your online donations also use encryption and security protocols. The information you provide is stored in a secure location, is accessible only by designated employees trained in the proper handling of customer information, and is used only for the stated purpose for which the information was collected.

In addition, First Nations keeps a record of each donor’s giving history. This information is kept on file for IRS purposes and is also used by the organization to analyze overall giving patterns in an effort to make accurate budget projections.

To help us reduce costs of reaching more individuals with information related to our mission, we do sometimes exchange portions of our contributor mailing list with select companies, predominantly other non-profit organizations. Names and addresses are provided on a one-time basis; therefore these organizations will not have continued access to your name and address unless you choose to respond to them directly.  You may request that we not share, sell, or exchange your information for third party fundraising or marketing purposes by following the opt-out procedure below.

Their encryption technology offers a secure environment to ensure the confidentiality of your transactions.
