We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect personal data within our organization. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a standard security protocol for establishing encrypted links between a web server and a browser in an online communication. We have a SSL certificate that can be validated by the presence of a green lock icon in the address bar. Unfortunately, no transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be completely secure, and transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us at email@example.com.
Online donations are processed via EveryAction, a third party service provider, and credit card information is encrypted using SSL technology. When you make an online contribution using EveryAction, you will also be asked to submit your credit card information and certain other information required by federal or state election laws. The credit card information is used solely to process your payment and is never stored on any of our servers. The amount of your contribution and the other required information (name, address, phone number, e-mail address and other contact information) are stored in a database on EveryAction’s servers that can only be accessed by our organization.
We will retain your personal data until you exercise your right to be forgotten or your right to erasure, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (for example for regulatory purposes).
Our Website is neither directed at nor intended for use by minors under the age of majority in the relevant jurisdiction. Further, we do not knowingly collect Personal Data from such individuals. If we learn that we have inadvertently done so, we will promptly delete it.
