Right to Opt Out

You have the right to "opt-out" of certain of our uses of your Personal Information. For example, at the time you are requested to provide Personal Information on this website and/or through our Services, you may have the opportunity to elect to, or not to: (1) receive promotional correspondence from NEEF or (2) have your Personal Information shared with other companies or individuals. You may opt-out of NEEF e-mails by clicking on an opt-out link. Please understand that if you opt-out of receiving promotional e-mails from NEEF, we may still contact you by e-mail or SMS in connection with your account with us or to provide you with important information about NEEF or this website or the Services. A request to have us stop sharing your Personal Information with other companies or individuals will only apply as of the date of the request, and NEEF will not be responsible for any communications that you may receive from companies or individuals that received your Personal Information prior to such request. In these cases, please contact that company or individual directly.

Our site contains external links to other organizations and websites, and we do not control the use of data collection on external websites.

This policy statement governs only this site and other sites of the National Environmental Education and Training Foundation operating as NEEF.


NEEF makes every effort to protect your information, through physical, electronic and administrative safekeeping.

Whenever NEEF permits an external third party to access personally-identifiable information, appropriate procedures are followed to help ensure that the information is used only for authorized purposes and by authorized persons in a manner consistent with the choices NEEF website visitors have made, and that the security, integrity and privacy of the information is maintained. 

Although NEEF takes all measures to prevent unauthorized access to and maintain the accuracy of your data and information, no information transferred over the Internet is 100% secure. NEEF cannot guarantee the total security of information transmitted to us.
