We are committed to protecting your privacy.
To make your experience at our website more convenient, we gather information from you. We maintain the privacy of your information using security technologies and adhere to policies that prevent unauthorized use of your personal information.
What personal information do we collect, and how is it used?
We collect information on which portions of our website visitors access or visit to determine interest in specific areas of the website or to track the interest of specific issue campaigns.
We also collect information volunteered by visitors, such as survey information and/or e-mail newsletter registrations. Any personal information we collect is used for internal review and is either discarded or used by us to contact consumers for purposes such as those described below.
We keep confidential all personal information entered during e-mail registration. When we do collect personally identifiable information, it is always voluntarily submitted by you (e.g., when you fill out the registration page or send us feedback). The information collected is used to send our users email newsletters and policy alerts and other information we think will be of interest. If, for any reason, you would like to be removed from our email list, you can unsubscribe by simply following the unsubscribe directions that are listed in each e-mail, or you can opt-out of future mailings by simply stating this desire in a reply to any e-mail we send you.
We may also monitor and track information such as member usage patterns of our website. We compile this information into a statistical aggregate through the use of technical means which are described below. We use this technical information, together with your personal information, for internal business and administrative purposes including improving our website, our operations and our client service.
Protecting your privacy
As part of our commitment to ensuring the privacy of our users, we do not sell or exchange names or any other personally identifiable information about our online network members with, for example, mass marketers. We keep confidential any personal information entered during e-mail registration, though we may share aggregate information about website usage and traffic patterns, stripped of any personally identifiable information, to third parties to comply with various reporting obligations and for business or outreach purposes.
E-mail program: We share limited personally identifiable information with our mass e-mail provider on a confidential basis to conduct our e-mail program for sending e-mail alerts and/or newsletters, on our behalf. Your information is for the use by us only and cannot be used for any other purpose by our e-mail program provider.
Secure data: We protect our member database with various technical and procedural measures and we restrict access to your information by unauthorized persons. Our information systems are maintained behind a software firewall to isolate them from access by other networks connected to the Internet. We also advise all of our employees about their responsibility to protect visitor data and we provide them with appropriate guidelines for adhering to our organization's ethics standards and confidentiality policies.
