How we use the information you provide Polosyv.org:
We will potentially use this information to send you news and information about Polosyv.org. When you volunteer online we may ask you to give us contact information (such as your name and e-mail address) and geographic information (such as your zip code and state). We may ask you to tell us how you would like to help our organization. We may use this information to send you material about our activities and to help match your interests to our activities. If you provide your phone number, we may call you. You may update your information by emailing us at info@Polosyv.org. Polosyv.org may share information with its successor organizations, if any.
In certain cases, but only with your authorization, we will enable you to send individual e-mails through our website in your name, and with your e-mail address as the return address, to the President and other legislators on a local and Federal level. When you write Letters-to-the-Editor to newspapers using our tool, your email address is used and your full name and contact information is provided as part of the submission.
For petitions and surveys you've signed or completed, we treat your name, city, state, and comments as public information—for example, we may provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to the Board of Supervisors, local legislators, federal legislators, and the President. But in no such case will we disclose your street address, email address or phone number without your permission. We may also make your comments, along with your first name, city, state, and country, available to the press and public online.
When you visit the P.O.L.O. website, we automatically obtain information from you about the name of your Internet service provider, the browser and type of computer you are using, the website that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time of those requests. We use this information on an aggregate basis to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of the site to our visitors. For example, we use this information to track which pages are most popular among visitors as a whole.
In no case, however, do we disclose data about individual visitors' behavior to any organization other than Polosyv.org. We do not collect or store personally identifiable information, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address or phone number, unless you provide that information. We do not use this data to develop profiles of individual visitors to our web site.
URLs contained in emails may contain an id that enables us to correctly identify the person who takes an action using our web page. We use these URLs to simplify the process of signing petitions and filling out surveys. We may occasionally present a shortened URL that references a longer URL which contains an id—we do this to simplify the display, to prevent links from becoming broken when copied, and to ensure compatibility with email programs which do not handle long URLs. When a shortened URL is displayed in an email, you will see the full URL in the browser's address bar when you access the page.
When you subscribe for updates:
We will use your email address to send you updates. You may remove your name from our mailing lists at anytime by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
When you sign up for our mailing lists:
We collect your e-mail address, state, and zip code. We use your e-mail address to send you P.O.L.O. updates. We may use your zip code and state to send you e-mail messages about upcoming events in your area. You may remove your e-mail address from our lists by emailing us at email@example.com. We do not share our mailing lists with non-political third parties; however, we may share your information with other like-minded organizations.
How we protect your information:
Our web site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. Our server is located in a locked, secure environment.
At P.O.L.O., we are putting forth every effort to ensure the security and privacy of the information that you share with us online.
