Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
The Leadership Institute is the sole owner of the information collected on this website. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us.

The Leadership Institute uses third parties to provide specific services like email marketing and credit card processing. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about training courses, solicit donations, provide resources and news updates, or update you on changes to this privacy policy. You may opt out of receiving Leadership Institute emails at any time.

To enhance your user experience or help us improve and measure our effectiveness, the Leadership Institute may embed code from third parties on this website. Examples of such parties may include Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, HubSpot, Drip, and others. These third parties may collect information about you in ways the Leadership Institute does not control. Please consult their respective privacy policies for more information.

Mailing List Sharing
From time to time, we make our contributor list available to other organizations to mail. This process is carefully controlled, and only your name and postal mailing address are shared. If you would like to be excluded from this, please call us at (703) 247–2000 or contact us here and we’ll make sure your name is not included in our mailing list sharing activities.

Text messaging originator opt-in data and consent will not be shared with any third parties unless required by law.

Donations and Training Course Registration 
We request information from you in order to provide our services. To donate to the Leadership Institute or to register for a Leadership Institute training program, you must provide contact information (like name, email address, and mailing address) and financial information (like credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to complete the transaction. If we have trouble processing an order, we'll use this information to contact you.

In order to use certain features of this website, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the services on our website in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender or age) about yourself, along with other information (like information about your work experience) that is relevant to the service being provided.

Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, donor communications) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

If you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy, you should contact us immediately via telephone at (703) 247–2000, or contact us here.
