Welcome to NRA InSights online, where NRA’s Junior audience can learn more about the outdoors, find a shooting competition or shooting sports camp, or just share a favorite photo. Your privacy is very important to the NRA, and we are committed to complying fully with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. We fully disclose our policy about the collection, maintenance, use, disclosure, and security of personal information obtained from users of our online activities. Our information collection practices are described below. We recommend that children check with their parents before entering information on any website and we urge parents to discuss with their children restrictions regarding the online release of personal information to anyone they don’t know.
Information Collection Practices
When you sign up for updates, newsletters, or other information published by NRA, we may ask for information that allows us to contact you.
If you submit photos or comments to us that we post on NRA InSights online, you will be identified on our site only by first name, first initial of the last name, age, city and state. We will only use your email address if we need to write back to you, or if you have requested more information from the NRA, but we will never share your information with anyone.
This site does not sponsor a live chat room where users can meet adults, and we do not post contact information when children send us photos or stories about themselves.
This site does feature a discussion forum accessible to our registered users. Users should be aware that any posts and conversations in this forum becomes public information. Users should NOT disclose any personally identifiable information. Your username is the only identity you should have, and that is how people should know you on the Internet. NRA InSights’ discussion forum is monitored and no messages will be posted without approval. Anyone who tries to ask for personal information but who has not been confirmed as a user’s parent/guardian will be prohibited from access to the discussion forum.
For users aged 13 years and older who have registered to use the Discussion Forum, the NRA sends the user’s parent/guardian an email notifying them that their child has registered at NRA InSights and provided the NRA with personally identifiably information. For users under 13 years of age, the NRA sends the user’s parent/guardian an email notification and obtains permission from his or her parent/guardian before the user can be fully registered. After receiving this notification email, the child's parent/guardian has the opportunity to review any identifiable information collected about their child, have this information deleted, and/or request that there be no further collection or use of their child’s information (See below, Notice to Parents).
Electronic “Send to a Friend” Messages
NRA InSights online provides children the opportunity to forward news updates, event information, and other online content to family or friends. We do not require children to submit personally identifiable information about themselves in order to send this online content. We do, however, ask children to submit the email address of the recipient of such news updates, event notifications, or other online content.
NRA InSights also provides users the opportunity to send e-mail to us. We request no personally identifiable information except an e-mail address, which we use solely for the purpose of responding to messages and/or requests.
All information collected for forwarded news updates, event notifications, and other online content is used only to send the email message and to respond to email questions and/or requests and is deleted from our system once the forwarded content, email message or email response is sent.
Third Party Use
NRA does not sell, rent, or loan our member or subscriber lists to third parties for any purpose.

Notice To Parents
Your child's privacy is important to the NRA, and we are committed to safeguarding children's personal information collected online, and to helping parents and their children learn how to exercise control over personal information while exploring the Internet. Therefore, we have taken additional measures to tailor our content and offerings at those sites and portions of our sites directed to children to help them protect their privacy while online. We do not ask children to disclose more personal information than is necessary for them to participate in an activity.
Visitors to the portions of our sites directed at children may participate in many of our offerings and activities without providing any personally identifiable information. To participate in certain of our interactive features, however, we may ask the user to provide us with the following types of information: first name, first initial of the last name, the visitor's e-mail address, parent's e-mail address, and age information.
• access the personally identifiable information that this site has collected from your child,
• correct factual errors in such information,
• request to have this information deleted, or
• request that we no longer collect or maintain such information.
To protect your child's privacy and security online, we will take appropriate steps to help verify your identity before granting you access to the personal information that we collect and maintain about your child.
We want to help you guard your children’s privacy. We encourage you to talk to your children about safe and responsible use of their personal information while using the Internet.
This Policy may be changed by NRA InSights. The revised Policy will be posted to this page so that you are aware of the information NRA InSights collects and how we use that information.
