Web Privacy Policy

National Association for States Community Services Programs (NASCSP) is committed to protecting individual privacy rights and securing the personal information made available to us when you visit, as well as NASCSP web pages on other sites (such as NASCSP profiles on social networks). This notice sets forth NASCSP’s policy regarding the nature, purpose, use and sharing of any information collected via this Website.

As a first principle, the information you provide on a NASCSP Website will be used only for its intended purpose. We will protect your information consistent with the requirements of the Privacy Act, the e-Government act of 2002, the Federal Records Act, and as applicable, the Freedom of Information Act.

Submitting information is strictly voluntary. By doing so, you are giving NASCSP your permission to use the information for the intended purpose. If you do not want to give NASCSP permission to use your information, simply do not provide it. However, not providing certain information may result in NASCSP’s inability to provide you with the information or services you desire.

This privacy policy will describe why we collect your information, how NASCSP uses your email address, updating your contact information, your security and privacy on our website, Website visitor data, opt-out, and links to other sites.

Why we collect your information

As a member organization, NASCSP collects and uses your email address for the sole purpose of providing our members and constituents with relevant updates and information sharing as it relates to specific programs, or changes to this privacy policy. Such updates include WAP updates with our Weatherization network, CSBG Digests for our state administrators, NASCSP news releases and newsletter stories, conference and training, promotion and registration information, Healthy Homes regional conferences and registration information, and additional important legislative updates as necessary.

How NASCSP uses your email address

NASCSP does not share, sell, or rent your email address with any company; your address is strictly for the purpose of information sharing between the association and its members and constituents.

Updating your contact information

It is your responsibility to keep your primary email address up to date so that NASCSP can communicate with you electronically. You understand and agree that if NASCSP sends you an electronic Communication, but you do not receive it because your primary email address on file is incorrect, out of date, blocked by your service provider, or you are otherwise unable to receive electronic Communications, NASCSP will be deemed to have provided the Communication to you.

Please note that if you use a spam filter that blocks or re-routes emails from senders not listed in your email address book, you must add NASCSP to your email address book so that you will be able to receive the Communications we send to you.
