We may automatically track and collect information when you visit our site, including your: (a) IP address; (b) domain server; (c) type of computer or device; (d) date and time; and (e) type of Web browser and operating system used (collectively 'Traffic Data'). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for analysis purposes or for improving your experience on the site.

b. Personal Information Collected. In order for you to access and use certain areas of the site and to order materials or information that we may offer through the site, we may require you to provide us with information that personally identifies you ('Personal Information'). Personal Information may include data such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, username, access password, phone number, birth date and other contact information. We may collect and retain any Personal Information that you provide to us. If you send us any email or other communication, we may retain those communications in order to respond to you, to evaluate or improve the services, or for other purposes.

c. Updates to Personal Information. It is your responsibility to update or correct your Personal Information whenever necessary. To update, correct, or request removal of your Personal Information, contact us at the following address: National Endowment for Financial Education, Attn: Privacy Policy Matters, 1331 17th Street, Suite 1200 Denver, Colorado 80202 or [email protected].

d. Not for Children. The areas of the site that require Personal Information are not intended for use by children under the age of 13. Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to access or use areas of the site that require the disclosure of Personal Information. If we discover or are advised that a person who has disclosed Personal Information through the site is under the age of 13, we will delete all Personal Information provided by that person.

e. Cookies. We may also use “cookies” or other similar software or code on this site. Cookies are small text files stored by your web browser when you use websites. You can control how websites use cookies by configuring your browser's privacy settings (please refer to your browser's help function to learn more about cookie controls). Note that if you disable cookies entirely, this website may not function properly.

f. Do Not Track beacons. We do not respond to Web browser “do not track” signals or other similar mechanisms that relate to the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities.

g. Third Party Tracking. We do not authorize third parties to collect Personal Information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use the site.

2. Uses of Information Collected

We may use Personal Information:
(a) to send you information or materials about our organization or to contact you when necessary;
(b) to send you or provide you access to information and materials offered through the site;
(c) to authorize and monitor the access to and use of the site;
(d) for research, development and analysis in connection with the maintenance, protection and improvement of our services, materials and information; and
(e) for purposes of maintaining and improving the site, the function of the site and access to the site.

We will not use Personal Information collected through the site to send you unsolicited promotional materials unless you request the information through the site or 'opt in' when an opportunity to do so is presented.

We may use Traffic Data and aggregated non-personal information and share such data and information with third parties.

3. User Choice Regarding Collection, Use and Distribution of Personal Information

You may choose not to provide us with any Personal Information. In such an event, you can still access and use much of the site; however, you may not be able to access and use portions of the site that require your Personal Information. When you sign up for an email list, you will be given instructions at that time on how to remove yourself from that list or you may opt out at that time, or you may contact [email protected] to request removal.

4. Confidentiality of Personal Information

Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we will use reasonable efforts to keep your Personal Information private and will not share it with third parties, unless we have your consent or we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with a court order or satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable government request; (b) protect our rights or property; (c) enforce our Terms of Use, including investigations into possible violations thereof; (d) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security, legal or technical issues; or (e) protect against harm or injury to us, our property, users or the public as required or permitted by law.

We may provide Personal Information to affiliated organizations or third parties if necessary to provide you with information, materials or services you have requested, provided that such organizations, persons or entities agree to keep such information private in accordance with this policy.

We provide reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security controls to protect your Personal Information. However, despite our efforts, no security controls are 100% effective and NEFE cannot ensure or warrant the security of your Personal Information.
