Donor Privacy

NAIA recognizes the importance of protecting information we may collect from donors and visitors to our site. We maintain appropriate security measures to keep this information private.

NAIA may acknowledge supporters by gift range in quarterly publications. If supporters prefer to remain anonymous, they may inform NAIA of their desire to have their name withheld from supporter lists.


NAIA will remove your name from our mailing list, email list, or telephone solicitation list at any time, at your request. You may opt out of receiving communications from us by sending an email with your complete name, address, and email address.

NAIA respects your privacy and will ensure your personal information is handled in a safe and responsible manner. We may use this information to deliver information to you about NAIA and our activities, as well as for trend analysis, pattern detection, and website administration. 

We will not disclose personally identifiable information to third parties unless (i) the person submitting the information authorizes us to do so; (ii) sharing the information is a necessary operation of the website (i.e. to process credit card information); and (iii) we are required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on NAIA or the website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of NAIA, the website or the visitors to the website, and/or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of visitors to the website or the public.
