Individuals who donate to the NBHF through PayPal have the option to choose whether or not to share their contact information with the NBHF. It is up to the individual to decide if they want to share their contact information. If they choose to share personal information with the NBHF, we may use this information for specific, limited purposes such as notifying donors of upcoming events, e-newsletters, etc. You may always "opt out," either now or at any time in the future if you do not wish to receive our messages.
