privacy policy

The National Alliance on Mental Illness Clackamas has created this privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy and security. This Privacy Policy discloses our information collection policies and practices for this Web site: (the “Website”). This Website is owned and operated by the NAMI Clackamas (hereinafter referred to as “NAMI,” or “we” or “us”). This Privacy Policy applies to NAMI Clackamas's online information-gathering and sharing practices occurring on the Website as well as our SMS messaging practices. By visiting this Website, you are accepting the practices and policies described in this Privacy Policy, and you are further indicating that you agree to be bound by the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy you should not visit this Website or use any of the “links” on this Website. We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time, so please check this Privacy Policy periodically for changes.


  • In most cases, NAMI Clackamas does not collect personally identifiable information about you other than what you freely share. We do log the IP address of every computer that visits our site as part of our normal site usage tracking, as further detailed below.

  • You have the option of entering personally-identifiable information about yourself as you interact with the Website, including name, address, demographic data such as age and income, interests, etc. NAMI Clackamas uses this information to help us understand who our site users are and how we may better target and tailor our services.

  • Except as stated in this Privacy Policy, NAMI Clackamas does not share any of your personally-identifiable information outside the NAMI Clackamas organization. 

  • You retain full control over all information you share about yourself, and may remove or request removal of this information at any time.

  • You retain full control over what types of email and SMS communication you receive from NAMI Clackamas, and may opt to discontinue email or SMS correspondence at any time.

  • You have the option to share personally identifiable information about yourself with other visitors to the Web site. These options are clearly labeled as such, e.g. the NAMIWalks fundraising pages. You may remove or request removal of any such information you share.

  • Anytime you enter personally-identifiable information, not intended to be shared publicly, such as password, address, or credit card number, this information is sent to NAMI Clackamas over a secure connection.

  • NAMI Clackamas uses generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us.


The Personal Information We Collect, How We Collect It And How It Is Used:

  • The NAMI Clackamas Web site does not collect any personally-identifiable information about our Website visitors, other than information that visitors freely enter.

  • The one exception to this is that, like most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, as further discussed below.

Non-Personal Information We Collect By Automated Means And How We Use It

  • We also collect certain non-personal information (data in a form that does not support direct association with any specific person or individual) by automated means when you visit the Website. Much of this information is collected through the use of third-party tracking services, such as Google Analytics. When gathered, this data is used in the aggregate, and not in a manner that is intended to identify you personally. In addition to the third-party tracking services mentioned above, we also collect this information through various other means, including “cookies,” “web beacons” and IP addresses, as further explained below.


  • A “cookie ” is a small file that a Web site can place on your computer. Cookies are commonly used by Websites to improve the user experience. Many cookies last only through a single Website session, or visit. Others may have an expiration date, or may remain on your computer until you delete them. We may use “session cookies” in order to enhance the user experience and for other web-related purposes. These session cookies are not linked to personally identifiable information. Most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookie, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable existing cookies.

  • If your Web browser is set to accept cookies, the NAMI Clackamas Web site places cookies when you visit. In order to sign in to the NAMI Clackamas Web site, you must accept cookies from NAMI Clackamas. Cookies are used to present you with a better experience and to remember your preferences, such as Remember Me.

  • Also, if you are “signed-in” to the Website, clicking the “Logout” link from the top of any page on the Web site other than the home page will remove your contact ID from your cookie, and will prevent others from using your sign-in account. You can remove NAMI Clackamas's cookie at any time by following the directions provided in your Internet browser’s “Help ” file.


IP Addresses:

  • When you visit and interact with the Website, third parties with whom we have contracted to provide services for us may collect Internet Protocol addresses (each an “IP Address”), as well as browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and page navigation. An IP Address is a unique identifier number that certain electronic devices used to identify and to communicate with each other on the Internet; your Internet Service Provider automatically assigns an IP Address to the computer that you are using. We gather this information to track Website visitor movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We may use this information to enhance our Website or for other lawful purposes

How We Use The Information We Collect:

  • Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, NAMI Clackamas does not share any personally identifiable information about you with un-related third parties. You have the option to update, revise, or have deleted any personal information you have shared with NAMI Clackamas, as further specified herein. For specific information about how information is used, please see the section above.

General Announcements And Promotions:

  • We will occasionally send you information on special events, news, or opportunities. Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications. 


  • If you subscribe to one of our e-newsletters, we will use your name and e-mail address to send it to you. Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option to unsubscribe. 

SMS Messaging:

  • We use SMS messaging to send announcements and informational messages related to our programs and services. We will not share your information or use it for any other purpose than described in the Messaging Terms and Conditions. You have the option to Opt-In to SMS messaging. You may Opt-Out if you no longer want to receive SMS messages by texting "STOP". You will then be unsubscribed and no more messages will be sent. Wireless carrier terms, conditions, message and data rates apply for messaging. Message frequency varies per user.

Links To Other Sites:

  • This Website contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by NAMI Clackamas. Please be aware that we, NAMI Clackamas, are not responsible for the privacy practices of other such Websites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of each and every Website that collects personally-identifiable information.

How We Protect The Information We Collect:

Browsers And Internet Security

  • Any time you enter or provide personal information on our Web site, we encrypt it using Secure Socket Layer ( “SSL“ ) technology. SSL protects information as it crosses the Internet. To support this technology, you need an SSL-capable browser.

  • You can tell if you are visiting a secure area within a Web site by looking at the lock or key symbol in your browser address window. If the address of the page begins with “https:// “, it is secure. Occasionally, the page you enter data on may not be secure, but by submitting the information you activate a secure connection and thus your data is submitted securely.

  • We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100 percent secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Changes To Our Privacy Policy:

  • We reserve the right to revise this Privacy Policy at any time. By continuing to use the Website after those changes become effective, you consent and agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.

NAMI Clackamas stands against hate and discrimination. We believe that all people deserve access to equitable mental health support, regardless of their identities or background. By connecting people with mental health education and support programs, we can make substantial, measurable progress in improving the mental health of all Oregonians.
