Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We are using a hosted web site provider ("Provider"). The Provider is likely gathering data about your usage on the Sites according to its data privacy and usage policies.

We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email, form submissions or other direct contact from you. We do not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us, determine if you are a registered voter and contact you in the future. We do not share your information outside of our organization, other than as necessary to meet our legal obligations and to respond to law enforcement requests.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about upcoming events, solicit donations, or changes to this privacy policy.

Sharing

We do not share aggregated demographic information with outside advertisers. That being said, as this is a hosted web site, the Provider may be doing this according to their terms of use and data privacy policies.

Security

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

As we have mentioned, our website is hosted on a online, internet accessible platform ("Platform") provided by the Provider. The Platform allows us to provide you information about ourselves and our events. Your data may be stored through the Platform's data storage, databases and the general applications on it. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as personal identification information), that information is encrypted and transmitted to the Platform in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
