Privacy Policy

The League of Young Voters and The Bus Federation (collectively, "we" or "us") are committed to preserving your privacy and safeguarding the personal and/or sensitive information you provide to us via any of our websites. This commitment is demonstrated by the terms of this Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy from time to time. The date of the latest revision will be listed at the bottom of the Policy. We encourage you to check this page each time you visit one of our websites so that you will know if the Policy has changed since you last visited the site. Your use of our websites indicates your acceptance to be bound by the terms of the Privacy Policy in effect as of the date of your use. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms of the Privacy Policy, do not use our websites.

Our Collection of Personal information

We do not collect personally identifiable information about individual users unless a user voluntarily provides such information to us, either directly or by agreeing to the terms and conditions if logging onto one of our sites through Facebook. We store any information that you provide, such as your name, mailing address or email address, using secure servers. We may share your information with third party vendors who use your information for the sole purpose of fulfilling your request (e.g., charging your donation). Each of our vendors has agreed to keep your information confidential from disclosure to others. We may also share your information between ourselves (in other words, between the League of Young Voters and The Bus Federation). We may share anonymized information with independent researchers to better understand how people use this site. In addition, we will cooperate with law enforcement, which may include disclosing some of your personal information if necessary. We will never sell any of your personal information to any third party. And we will never post any of your personal information online without your consent.

Use of Cookies

"Cookies" are small text files that facilitate a user's access to and use of a website and allow a website operator to track usage and behavior with respect to its sites. We use cookies that automatically collect certain non-personal information about visitors to our websites. In addition, we use Google Analytics, which provides us with information about our users. We collect this information on an aggregate basis, which allows us to improve our websites to make them more useful to our users. We do not use any of this information on an individual basis.

Protecting Children's Privacy

We are concerned about the safety and privacy of children online. Therefore, we do not and will not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13. It remains possible, however, that we may receive information given to us by or pertaining to children under 13. If we are notified of this, we will promptly delete the information from our servers. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information by or about any child under 13, please email us at info@theballot.org.

Security

You may be able to purchase items or donate money via our websites using PayPal. PayPal does not provide us with your personal financial information (e.g., credit card number).

We make every effort to ensure the secure collection and transmission of your sensitive information using industry accepted data collection and encryption methodologies, such as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). We also have security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information within our control. Only employees with a need to know certain information to perform a specific task are granted access to personally identifiable information of our users. In addition, the servers that store sensitive information are kept in a secure environment.

Emails

You may sign up to receive email communications from us. These emails provide information that we think will be of interest to you, for example, information about new features or content on our sites, or calls for action on certain issues. If you provide us with your email address through some other action on one of our websites, we may add you to your email distribution list. You can always "opt out" of receiving our online communications by following the unsubscribe directions on any of the emails, or by sending us an email at info@theballot.org asking that we delete you from our email list.

Please recognize that emails are not secure against interception. Therefore, please do not send us sensitive or personal information via email.

Links to Other Websites

We may provide links to other sites from our websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or the content on such sites. You should read the privacy policy of each website that you visit. This Privacy Policy applies only to information that we collect through our websites.
