Trust and transparency are important to us at the NC Budget & Tax Center, and that includes being clear about what we are doing with your information so you know you can trust us.

We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of your online information. This policy describes how we collect and use your information online.

We take your privacy seriously. We do not rent, sell, or share your contact information.

You can always manage your contact information, email subscription, and contributions by logging in to your Personal Dashboard. [https://ncbudget.org/personal-dashboard]

How do we process your information? We process your information to provide, improve, and administer our site, communicate with you, for security and fraud prevention, and to comply with law. We may also process your information for other purposes with your consent. We process your information only when we have a valid legal reason to do so. Here are some examples:

  • Personal information provided by you: We may collect your name, phone number, and email address, or other information that we will be clear about, when you subscribe to our emails, sign a petition on our site, or register for an event.
  • Payment Data.We may collect data necessary to process your payment if you make a donation. All payment data is stored by Bonterra. You may find their privacy notice here: https://www.bonterratech.com/legal/privacy-policy.
  • Information automatically collected: Some information — such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address and/or browser and device characteristics — is collected automatically when you visit our site. This information does not reveal your specific identity (like your name or contact information). This information is primarily needed to maintain the security and operation of our Services, and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes.

In what situations and with which parties do we share personal information? We will not share your personal information with a third party unless you give us permission or we are legally required.

How do we keep your information safe? We have organizational and technical processes and procedures in place to protect your personal information. However, no electronic transmission over the internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information.

Do we use cookies and other tracking technology? We may use cookies and similar tracking technologies (like web beacons and pixels) to access or store information.
