Privacy & Legal

The Center for National Policy (“CNP”) strongly believes in protecting the integrity and privacy of personal information we collect from visitors to our websites. Since the protection of your privacy is of the greatest importance to us, we have created this Privacy Policy to communicate our practices regarding the collection and use of personal information that can be linked to a specific individual, such as a name, address, phone number, or e-mail address, provided to us by visitors to our websites (“personally identifiable information”).

CNP does not collect personally identifiable information on our websites without your permission. However, please be aware that our websites link to a limited number of other websites, and CNP cannot control and is not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of those websites. We encourage you to read those sites’ privacy policies.

Our privacy policy explains the information practices we follow related to:

  • How we use personally identifiable information we maintain
  • How we protect your personally identifiable information
  • How to unsubscribe from our mailing lists
  • How we will notify you about changes to our Privacy Policy
  • How to contact us about privacy issues

How we use the information we collect on our websites

We collect personally identifiable information when you donate to CNP, register for an event, or when you sign up for any of our mailing lists. We may also receive personally identifiable information from our sister organization, the Truman National Security Project (“Truman Project”), with whom we have an agreement to share such information. We use this information to send you  newsletters and other  updates about programs, events, and issues of importance to the CNP community, as well as for fundraising purposes. All emails we send contain a link that allows you to unsubscribe from future emails, and you may unsubscribe at any time.

We will not share your personally identifiable information with any third party except those vendors we hire to assist us with our work who have agreed to protect the confidentiality of the information and the Truman Project. The Truman Project may use your personally identifiable information for purposes similar to those listed above pursuant to a privacy policy that is in all material respects the same as this one. If you do not want CNP to share your personally identifiable information with Truman Project, it is your right to prevent us from doing so by emailing us at

Cookies: CNP uses "cookies" on some of our webpages. A cookie is a small piece of data stored on your hard drive but does not itself contain any personal information. Cookies enhance your experience by saving you from having to provide information each time you revisit a CNP webpage and by customizing content based on your interests. If you wish, you can configure your browser to be alerted when a site is attempting to send a cookie and refuse the cookie.

How we protect your information:

CNP is extremely protective of the personally identifiable information we maintain. Our websites have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. Our web server is located in a locked, secure environment. Access to our database is restricted and secure.

When you contribute online to CNP, we process these payments in accordance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The PCI DSS provides a set of security requirements for payment card processing. The PCI DSS is currently available through a link at the following URL:

CNP does not specifically ask children under 18 for any information and we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information about them.

How to unsubscribe from mailing lists:

All CNP communications, whether via email or US mail, provide information on how to unsubscribe quickly and easily. Those wishing to opt out of receiving all communications from CNP and/or Truman Project ("do not contact”) can email

How we will notify you about changes to our Privacy Policy:

CNP reserves the right to amend this Privacy Policy from time to time, with any material changes taking effect after the updated policy has been posted at for at least five (5) days. If you do not unsubscribe from our mailing list before the changes take effect, the updated policy will apply to your personally identifiable information. Please check often to read our current Privacy Policy.
