While we cannot guarantee the safety of Third Party Services, we ensure to take all reasonable and expected measures to ensure the security of your Content.   

When you delete Content, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies (but will not be readily available to others and the data will be ‘beyond use’).

Information for Contributors for Publicly Available Content

All users, contributing to publicly available content, are required to grant broad permission to the general public to re-distribute and re-use their contributions freely, as long as the use is attributed and the same freedom to re-use and re-distribute applies to any derivative works.

As an author, you agree to be attributed in any of the following manners: (a) through a hyperlink (where possible) or URL to the article or articles you contributed to; (b) through a hyperlink (where possible) or URL to an alternative, stable online copy of the article which is freely accessible, which conforms with the license, and which provides credit to the authors in a manner equivalent to the credit given on this website; or (c) through a list of all authors. (Any list of authors may be filtered to exclude very small or irrelevant contributions.)

If you import text under a compatible license which requires attribution, you must, in a reasonable manner, credit the author(s). Where such credit is commonly given through page histories (such as Wikimedia-internal copying), it is sufficient to give attribution in the edit summary, which is recorded in the page history, when importing the text. Regardless of the license, the text you import may be rejected if the required attribution is deemed too intrusive.

Limitation of Liability

The provisions of paragraph 14 shall apply to any action at law, in equity, or arbitration:

(a) NFC’s total liability, if any, with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement (including but not limited to liability arising out of contact, tort, strict liability, breach of warranty, or otherwise), is limited to charges collected by NFC under this Agreement in the twelve (12) month period immediately preceding to the initial act, injury, or occurrence that gave rise to the liability;

(b) NFC shall not be liable for any loss of profits or revenue, special, punitive, incidental, or consequential damages in any action arising out of the subject matter of this Agreement, specifically including but not limited to loss or corruption of customer data, whether or not foreseeable and even if NFC has been advised or had previous knowledge of the possibility of such damages;

(e) NFC is not liable for any fraud, penalties, or any misleading of donors, users, government agencies, or the general public about an organization’s charity, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) or other tax-exempt status.
