How We Protect Your Information

NUFI takes strong precautions to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information to NUFI via the website or otherwise, their information is protected both online and off-line.


NUFI restricts access to your personal information to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or program services to you. Our employees are trained in the importance of maintaining confidentiality and privacy of your information. Only employees who require the information to perform a specific job (for example, our chairman, secretary, treasurer, accountant, president, or a customer support representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect nonpublic personal information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. On an ongoing basis, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy and what they can do to ensure our users’ information is protected from unauthorized use or disclosure.


Our website may contain links to other web sites. Please be aware that NUFI is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy policy statement applies solely to information collected by the website of NUFI and no other sites.


We provide users the opportunity to receive newsletters via email. If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. You have an option to provide your address, city, state, and zip code. Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter may opt-out of receiving these communications by using the unsubscribe option in the newsletter email or by contacting NUFI at info@nufi.org.


From time-to-time we request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as your name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, business size, etc.). Survey (demographic) information will be used for the purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of our site, products and/or services. Our surveys may have separate rules other than those listed above. We will identify how the information supplied may be used in each such individual case.

Change of Control

In the event of a sale, merger, transfer, exchange or other disposition (whether of assets, stock or otherwise) of all or a portion of NUFI and/or its subsidiaries, users personally identifiable information may be transferred. Users will have the opportunity to opt-out of further secondary use of information following any change of control.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to materially change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on the page(s) of our website where the policy is regularly located (and with an updated revision date) so that our users can always be made aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We will use information in accordance with the Privacy Policy under which it was collected. NUFI encourages you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to be informed of how we are protecting your information.


We will be changing what we do and how and why we disclose date periodically – this Privacy Policy describes what we currently envision, but that will change as we change. You agree that this Privacy Policy amends and replaces any previous Privacy Policies. We may further amend all or part of this Privacy Policy in the same way that we make amendments to our Terms of Use and such amended version changes will be posted on this page.
