Privacy Policy

Internet: The National Center for Public Policy Research values the privacy of our Internet visitors.  As a result, we collect very little information about our visitors, and store even less.

When you visit, we do not obtain your email address unless you manually send it to us by, for example, clicking on a link to send us email or an online donation.  Because some software collects it automatically, we do obtain some IP addresses (in layman’s terms, an IP address is a number the Internet uses to identify computers), but we almost never review this data and we have never shared it.  The IP address of website visitors is not apparent to other visitors and can only be accessed with the use of a password, which is solely available to the webmaster, and not to National Center staff generally.

Software programs also in some cases collect the name of the ISP visitors are using (for examples, AOL or Earthlink). This data is rarely reviewed and, to the extent it is stored, is kept under secure password.  Hypothetical examples of the format and type of data collected is:

As is obvious, this data, captured automatically by our software, includes neither the visitor’s name, e-mail address nor physical address.

From time-to-time, a visitor to our website may use a feature allowing visitors to “email this url to a friend” (an example of such a feature can be found on  If you use this feature we do not note, nor do we record, your name nor the e-mail address to which you sent the url or message.

Contribution lists: Certain lists of donors are occasionally rented or traded with other appropriate organizations so that we may obtain new lists of individuals who may be interested in our programs.  If you are a National Center donor and you prefer that your name and address not be included in such list trades or rentals, you may inform us by e-mail by clicking here.  Please include your name and address.  If you wish to be removed from our mail solicitation lists, please click here.  Please include your name and mailing address in your e-mail correspondence.  For name/address changes or other concerns, please click here.

These requests also may be facilitated by writing us at: National Center for Public Policy Research, 501 Capitol Ct NE, Suite 200, Washington, DC 20002, or faxing us at (202) 543-5975, or calling (202) 543-4110. 

The National Center for Public Policy Research does not conduct telephone solicitation efforts, so there is no need to contact us if you do not wish to be telephoned as part of a National Center telephone solicitation campaign.

All privacy policies are subject to laws, subpoenas, government regulations and court orders, and also are subject to change.
