Privacy Policy

We know you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our Privacy Policy.

By using or accessing the Services in any manner, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you consent that we will collect, use, and share your information in the following ways. Remember that your use of our Services is at all times subject to our Terms of Use, which incorporate this Privacy Policy.

Any terms we use in this Privacy Policy without defining them have the definitions given to them in our Terms of Use.

What does this Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") that we gather when you are accessing or using our Services, but not to the practices of companies we don't own or control, or people that we don't manage.

Please note that our Services allow you to provide us with Personal Information regarding your own customers, users, visitors, supporters or voters ("Supporter Data"). This Privacy Policy deals with our use of your own Personal Information, and not Supporter Data that you may provide to us in connection with the Services.

How we handle your Supporter Data is contained in our Terms of Use.

We gather various types of Personal Information from our users, as explained in more detail below, and we use this Personal Information internally in connection with our Services, including to personalize and improve our services, to allow you to set up a user account and profile, to contact you and allow other users to contact you, to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to provide and improve the Services, and to analyze how you use the Services.

In certain cases, we may also share some Personal Information with third parties, but only as described below.

We are not responsible for the practices of sites linked to from the Services, or for the privacy practices of our other customers on the Services, and before interacting with any of these sites you are advised to review their rules and policies before providing them with any private information.

If you are under 18, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 18 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on the Services.

Please reach us at [email protected] with any concerns.

Will this Privacy Policy ever change?

We may need to change this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will alert you to changes by placing a notice on the Services, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means. Please note that if you've opted not to receive legal notice emails from us (or you haven't provided us with your email address), those legal notices will still govern your use of the Services, and you are still responsible for reading and understanding them. If you use the Services after any changes to the Privacy Policy have been posted, that means you agree to all of the changes. Use of information we collect now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is collected.

Information We Collect

When you sign up for the Services, you provide us with information such as your name and email address.

When you use the Services, we may send cookies - small text files containing alphanumeric characters - to your computer to identify your browser and help enhance your experience with the Services. You can set your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Some features of the Services may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

We may use tiny images known as clear GIFs to track behavior of users, including statistics on who opens our emails.

Our servers automatically record certain log file information reported from your browser when you access the Services, or when other third party services transmit data to our Services. These server logs may include information such as which pages of the Service you visited, your IP address, browser type, and other information on how you interact with the Services. These log files are generally deleted after one year.

We use Google Analytics to help us understand use of our Services. Data collected by Google Analytics is subject to their terms and policies.

Financial information connected to payments may be collected or stored by a third-party payment processor and is subject to their terms and policies.

How We Use Your Information

We may use certain information about you internally for purposes such as analyzing how the Service is used, diagnosing service or technical problems, maintaining security, and personalizing content.

By providing us your email address (including by using a third party sign-in such as Google) you consent to our using the email address to send you Service-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail.

You also agree that we may send you notifications of activity on the Service to the email address you give us, in accordance with any applicable privacy settings. We may use your email address to send you other messages, such as newsletters, changes to features of the Service, or special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out in your account settings. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers. You may not opt out of Service-related e-mails.

Following termination or deactivation of your account, we may retain your profile information and all information posted to public areas of the Service.

Profile information is any information you include in your account settings or personal profile.

We use cookies, clear gifs, and log file information to:

  1. help you efficiently access your information after you sign in;

  3. provide custom, personalized content and information;
  4. monitor the effectiveness of our Service;
  5. monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns; and

How We Share Your Information

Personally Identifiable Information: We will never rent or sell your personally identifiable information to others.

We may share your personally identifiable information with third parties for the purpose of providing the Service to you. If we do this, such third parties' use of your information will be in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of us (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers). As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer or assign such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution.

Any personal information or content that you voluntarily make publicly available on the Service becomes available to the public. If you remove information that you previously made publicly available, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, or if other users have copied or saved that information.

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, we will not disclose personal information to any third party unless required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to:

  1. conform to the law, comply with legal process served on us or our affiliates, or investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities;
  2. to enforce our Terms of Service, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, or to protect the security or integrity of our site; and
  3. to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of us, our users or others.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain services.

Security

We endeavor to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information we hold in our records, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.
