Our site may contain links to other sites that are not managed or maintained by the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA).

Your dealings with these sites are covered only by the privacy policies listed on those sites.

How do I know my credit card information is secure?

We have teamed up with Network for Good, a secure and trusted platform for making donations, accredited by the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance and meets all 20 of its standards for charity accountability. View their acccreditation here.

Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges. In the event of an unauthorized charge to your credit card you must:

1. Write to the creditor at the address given for "billing inquiries," not the address for sending your payments, and include your name, address, account number and a description of the billing error.

2. Send your letter so that it reaches the creditor within 60 days after the first bill containing the error was mailed to you. What do I do if I have questions that aren't answered here? If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site or your dealings with this Web site, please contact us.
