The National Eating Disorders Association (referred to herein as “NEDA”, “we”, “us”, and “our”), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, respects the privacy of individuals (“you”, “your”, and “users”) who use our websites and services, and is committed to protecting it through adherence to this privacy statement. The Policy applies to NationalEatingDisorders.org and NEDA-operated microsites (collectively the “Websites”), and describes the personal information that NEDA collects from the Websites and the ways in which NEDA uses the information. It also informs you about our practices with respect to information that might be collected through NEDA’s service partners and other online/offline channels.
By using the Websites or communicating with NEDA through online/offline channels, you are deemed to have assented and agreed to the Policy as in effect at the time of your use.
You can browse the content on the Websites without revealing any personal information.
From time to time, NEDA may provide the opportunity to participate in a survey on the Websites, requesting or allowing you to submit content that may be uploaded to the Websites. In conducting a survey, we may ask you for certain information such as your age, gender, race, ethnicity, and your opinion about our services. Participation will be voluntary and, if indicated as anonymous, it will not be linked to any personal information.
For certain online transactions with NEDA including making donations to, purchasing items or service from, or participating in auctions or events sponsored by or for the benefit of NEDA, you will be provided with a link to an SSL-secured website, which may be a third party’s website, to process your requests. The types of personal information that would be collected are disclosed prior to or at the time of transaction. Please read privacy policies and data collection practices of any third-party site that processes online transactions on behalf of NEDA. We take no responsibility for the security and/or data collection practices of third parties.
Some anonymous statistical data on the Websites such as usage patterns, visitor interests, technology used, demographics, and geographic information may be logged by third-party tools for the purpose of improving NEDA’s services, monitoring the health of our Websites, and enhancing site usability. To learn more about the collected data and how to opt-out, please visit Google’s guide to data privacy & security.
NEDA does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to other organizations or individuals in ways different from what is disclosed in the Policy. NEDA is the sole owner of the information collected through its services and the Websites, and may use the information to assess NEDA’s programs and for development efforts. On occasion, we may share the information with third-party companies for the sole purpose of assisting NEDA in fulfilling such assessments and development efforts.
To respond to your requests and for updates about new content on the Websites and special events organized by NEDA, your email address in NEDA’s database will be used to communicate. NEDA may also directly communicate with you via phone and/or direct mail concerning non-anonymous surveys, submission of content, or services we provide. Information collected from the communication will be stored as long as NEDA deems reasonably necessary and practicable for the purpose of enhancing our services, or to otherwise meet legal requirements.
Accessing & Correcting Information
You have the right to access, update, request removal of, and correct factual inaccuracies in personally identifiable information that is collected through the Websites, subject to the provisions in the preceding section. To do so, you may email us at . To protect your privacy and the security of your personally identifiable information, NEDA will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before updating, correcting, or removing your personally identifiable information.
NEDA takes security seriously and will take reasonable technical and organizational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse, or alteration of your personal information. NEDA will store all the personal information you provide on its secure servers. Information relating to online transactions entered via the Websites will be protected by encryption technology. However, there is no such thing as a 100% secure website. The National Eating Disorders Association cannot, and does not guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, disclosure, misuse, modification, or any other breaches will not occur.
Links to External Sites

These external sites have their own privacy policies and/or data collection practices, which may be substantially different from NEDA’s, concerning personal information. NEDA encourages you to review and learn about the privacy policies and practices of all external websites and services. We take no responsibility for linked external sites.
