2. HOW WE COLLECT AND USE INFORMATION
Communicating with You: We may use your Personal Data for the purpose of communicating with you, or allowing others to communicate with you, about matters consistent with our mission, and to respond to your inquiries.
Online Activism: We may allow you to send messages to government officials and other decision-makers or sign petitions by means of the Site. To do so, you will need to identify yourself by providing Personal Data, which may include your name, postal and email addresses, phone number and postal address. We will forward this Personal Data to the specified recipients of the messages or targets of the petitions, as applicable. We may use a third party provider, such as Speak4, to facilitate this service. In such case, the provider will have access to your Personal Data but has committed to only use that Personal Data on our behalf for the purpose for which you have provided it.
Surveys: We may ask you to complete surveys or opinion polls from time to time. If we do so, participation will be voluntary, and we will only use the information that we collect in an aggregate manner, not in individually identifiable form.
Donations or Purchases: Although we do not currently offer these features, if we ever provide an opportunity for users of the Site to make online donations or purchases, we will ask you to provide Personal Data, including your name, postal and email addresses, telephone number and payment information, which we or our third-party payment processor will use to process the transaction. We might also add your contact information to our mailing lists.
Inquiries: If you send us a comment or question, we will retain the information that you provide to us for the purpose of responding to you, as well as for improving the Site.
Cookies and other Tracking Technologies:
We maintain web logs that automatically record basic information about everyone who visits the Site. We use web log information to help us improve the Site, to identify popular features, and for other administrative and analytic purposes. We may also use web logs to help identify any person who may be misusing the Site. These logs may contain:
· Your IP address.
· The type of browser and operating system that you use.
· The date and time you visited a Site.
· The pages that you visited on a Site.
· The address of the website you linked from to get to a Site.
The Coalition may use web beacons alone or in combination with cookies to compile information about how people use the Site and interact with our emails. Beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular website tied to the beacon, and a description of a website tied to the beacon. For example, we may place beacons in emails that notify us when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of the Site. We may use beacons to operate and improve the Site and email communications.
3. HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION
Other Organizations: We may share Personal Data with our affiliates, lawmakers and other organizations for purposes consistent with the objectives of the Coalition.
Service Providers: We contract with third party service providers to perform functions for us. These service providers may be given access to the information we collect for the purpose of performing those functions, but they will be contractually bound to maintain the confidentiality of the information and not to use it for any other purpose.
Mergers or Transfers: If we were to merge with, or transfer all or substantially all of our assets to, another organization, one of the assets we would likely include in the transfer is our database of Personal Data.
Disclosures for Legal Reasons: We will disclose Personal Data when we are required to do so by law, regulation or other legal requirement, for example, in response to a court order or subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request or when we believe such disclosure is appropriate to protect our legal rights or to protect anyone’s property or safety.
4. OUR LINKS: The Site may contain links to other websites whose privacy practices differ from those of the Coalition. If you submit Personal Data to any of those sites, that information will be governed by their privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policies of any website you visit.
5. YOUR PRIVACY CHOICES
We take reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Data we collect is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete and current. If you would like us to stop sending you email or other communications or would like to access your Personal Data to review, correct or delete it, you may send us a request at [email protected]. We will endeavor to satisfy such requests within a reasonable time.
6. HOW WE SECURE YOUR INFORMATION
We use reasonable means to safeguard the security of Personal Data and prevent unauthorized use, disclosure, destruction, and changes of data. However, security can never be foolproof on the Internet, and we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Data. Moreover, because Internet communication is unsecure, the Personal Data you supply to us or your access of any information via the Site could be intercepted during transmission.
7. WHO MAY USE THE SITE
The Site is intended for use by adults. We do not target, or knowingly collect any Personal Data from, children under the age of 13.
8. DO NOT TRACK
Some web browsers include a setting allowing users to send a “do not track” or similar request to websites. The Site does not respond to such requests. Therefore, use of such browser settings will not have any effect on your use of the Site or what Personal Data the Site collects.
