  3. A Note About Children.  We do not intentionally gather Personal Data from visitors who are under the age of 13 through our Platform.  If a child under 13 submits Personal Data to Company and we learn that the Personal Data is the information of a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible.  If you believe that we might have any Personal Data from a child under 13, please contact us at questions@phone2action.com.
  4. A Note to Users Outside of the United States.  If you are a non U.S. user of the Services, by accessing the Platform and providing us with data, you acknowledge and agree that your Personal Data may be processed for the purposes identified in the Privacy Policy.  In addition, your Personal Data may be processed in the country in which it was collected and in other countries, including the United States, where laws regarding processing of Personal Data may be less stringent than the laws in your country.  By providing your data, you consent to such transfer.

  5. Types of Data We Collect.  “Personal Data” means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. “Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data; Anonymous Data does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons.  We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data, as described below.

  • Information Collected via Technology.
    • Information Collected by Our Servers.  To make our Platform and Services more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.
    • Log Files.  As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files.  This information may include IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.  We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs.  For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Site or the Services again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests.  Except as noted in this Privacy Policy, we do not link this automatically-collected data to Personal Data.
    • Cookies.  Like many online services, we use cookies to collect information. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the website.  We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Site.    This type of information is collected to make the Site more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.  If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to accept Cookies from our Service for any of the purposes described above, then you can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting Cookies or to prompt you before accepting a Cookie from the websites you visit. Consult your browser’s technical information. If you do not accept Cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Service or all functionality of the Service. If you have any questions about how to disable or modify Cookies, please let us know at the contact information provided below.
    • How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals.  We do not currently respond to “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that might enable Users to opt out of tracking on our site.
    • Information Collected from Third Party Companies.  We may receive Personal and/or Anonymous Data about you from companies that provide our Services by way of a co-branded or private-labeled website or companies that offer their products and/or services on our Site.  These third party companies may supply us with Personal Data.  We may add this information to the information we have already collected from you via our Site in order to improve the Services we provide.
  • Information You Provide to Third Parties.  The Services allow users to access the Platform through third-party websites who are clients of Company (“Clients”).  By proceeding, you are allowing the Services to access your information collected from such Clients and you are agreeing to the Clients’ Terms of Use in your access to and use of the Services.
  • Information You Provide to Us.
    • We may collect Personal Data from you, such as your first and last name, gender, e-mail, phone number, mailing addresses, professional title, company name, password if there is an account creation process (“Account”), and any other information that you voluntarily provide to us.
    • If you tell us where you are (e.g., by allowing your mobile device to send us your location), we may store and use that information to provide you with geographically based information.
    • Certain Services may require our collection of your phone number.  We may associate that phone number to your mobile device identification information.
    • We may retain information on your behalf, such as files and messages that you store using the Services.
    • If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply.
    • We may also collect Personal Data at other points in our Site that state that Personal Data is being collected.
  • Location Information. If you have enabled location services on your phone, we may collect your location information to better provide you with information and content relating to the legislators and other key figures in your area.  If you do not want this information collected by us, you can disable location services on your phone.

6. Use of Your Personal Data

  • General Use.  In general, Personal Data you submit to us is used either to respond to requests that you make, or to aid us in serving you better.  We may use your Personal Data in the following ways:
    • identify you as a user in our system.
    • provide improved administration of our Services.
    • provide the Services.
    • improve the quality of experience when you interact with our Services and any applicable Clients.
    • send you a welcome text message or e-mail to verify ownership of the mobile phone number or e-mail address provided to Clients as part of the registration process.
    • send you SMS messages, MMS messages, and/or e-mails from campaign sponsors if you opt in to such messages, and solely in accordance with the opt-in options that you selected.  You will always have the right to opt out of such SMS messages, MMS messages, and/or emails from campaign sponsors, or any of your preferences related thereto.
  • Creation of Anonymous Data.  We may create Anonymous Data records from Personal Data by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you.  We use this Anonymous Data to analyze request and usage patterns so that we may enhance the content of our Services and improve Site navigation.  We reserve the right to use Anonymous Data for any purpose and disclose Anonymous Data to third parties in our sole discretion.

7. Disclosure of Your Personal Data.  We disclose your Personal Data as described below and as described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy.

  • Third Party Service Providers.  We may share your Personal Data with third party service providers to:  provide you with the Services that we offer you through our Site; to conduct quality assurance testing; to facilitate creation of accounts; to provide technical support; and/or to provide other services to the Company.  These third party service providers are required not to use your Personal Data other than to provide the services requested by Company.
    • Affiliates.  We may share some or all of your Personal Data with our parent company, subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under a common control (“Affiliates”), in which case we will require our Affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy.
    • Corporate Restructuring. We may share some or all of your Personal Data in connection with or during negotiation of any merger, financing, acquisition or dissolution transaction or proceeding involving sale, transfer, divestiture, or disclosure of all or a portion of our business or assets.  In the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, Personal Data may also be transferred as a business asset. If another company acquires our company, business, or assets, that company will possess the Personal Data collected by us and will assume the rights and obligations regarding your Personal Data as described in this Privacy Policy.
    • Social Networking Sites.  Some of our Services may enable you to post content to social networks sites, such as Facebook or Twitter (“SNSs”).  If you choose to do this, we will provide information to such SNSs in accordance with your elections.  You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for your use of those websites and that it is your responsibility to review the terms of use and privacy policy of the third party provider of such SNSs.  We will not be responsible or liable for: (i) the availability or accuracy of such SNSs; (ii) the content, products or services on or availability of such SNSs; or (iii) your use of any such SNSs.
    • Disclosure to Third Party Companies.  We may enter into agreements with Clients that provide our Services by way of a co-branded or private-labeled website. A Client may want access to Personal Data that we collect from such Client’s customers.  We may also sell or otherwise disclose Personal Data to our business partners or other trusted entities for the purpose of providing goods or services we believe will be of interest to you.

AS A RESULT, WE MAY PROVIDE YOUR PERSONAL DATA TO A CLIENT.  BECAUSE WE DO NOT CONTROL THE PRIVACY PRACTICES OF THESE CLIENTS, YOU SHOULD READ AND UNDERSTAND THEIR PRIVACY POLICIES.
