  • When you donate money or attend a paid event organized by NPYM we will ask you to provide billing and payment information.
  • NPYM uses common Internet technologies, such as cookies and Google Analytics, to monitor website performance, to track of anonymous interactions with the Organization's Web sites and personalized interaction with some of our emails.  
  • Quarterly meetings, monthly meetings and worship groups affiliated with NPYM provide contact information for their members and attenders, as new information becomes available. 

How we use that information

  • NPYM uses information collected to provide you with the services you request.
  • NPYM may use information collected to provide you with additional information about NPYM's services, events and to request your financial support for our work.
  • NPYM may use information collected to improve our Web sites and Services.
  • NPYM may use information collected and information provided by quarterly meetings, monthly meetings and worship groups for communications related to service on NPYM committees, service with NPYM governance, or to extend other service/volunteer opportunities to you. 
  • The NPYM attender directory provides personal contact information to anybody who is contained within that directory. Additions to that directory are under direct control of secretary@npym.org.
