Privacy Policy

StandTallForAmerica.com and Wyden for Senate are committed to respecting and protecting your privacy and the information you share with us. This document outlines the ways in which we use information transmitted to us.

The purpose of this website is to share information about important political and policy issues in the U.S. and encourage individuals to participate in U.S. elections and the electoral process. Therefore, the petitions, surveys, and forms on this website are open only to residents of the United States with a valid U.S. zip code.

Use of Information

We use information collected from you for four general purposes: to personalize your online experience when using this web site, to send you personalized correspondence, to fulfill your requests for certain information, and to process any data you send to us.

When you sign one of our petitions, pledges, or other endorsement-type forms, we treat your name, city, state, and any comments as public information. We may, for example, disclose this information to public officials, the press, and/or the general public. In accordance with our general policy, we may also use the information that you provide to contact you for other purposes or to solicit contributions. We may share your email address and other contact information with other organizations that share similar goals and objectives, and they may contact or solicit you. By signing a petition or pledge sponsored by multiple organizations, you are opting in to and may receive emails from one or more of the sponsors of the petition or pledge. (You may, of course, unsubscribe at any time.)

Collection of Information

Information You Choose to Share: The information that we collect from you through this web site will vary depending upon how you use the web site and what information you choose to provide to us. Generally, we collect any information that you provide to us through online forms, participating in online activities, posting information on our blog, or other forms of correspondence. Some online activities on our web site offer you the opportunity to post information on the World Wide Web. Naturally, the information you post to the Web is not private.

Cookies: We may also use cookies to collect information about your use of the web site. A "cookie" is a tiny text file that we store on your computer to customize your experience and support some necessary functions.  You may adjust your Internet browser to disable the use of cookies; however, some features of this web site may not be available without the use of cookies.

Log Files: We use internet protocol (IP) addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track web traffic, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. An IP address is a 32-bit number that identifies each sender or receiver of information and is sent in packets across the Internet. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. In addition, our log files track which pages you visit, from which page you came to our site, and what software you use to visit our site.

In partnership with third parties, we use various technologies to learn how visitors are using our websites, improve our websites, and customize your experience. This may include sending cookies (small data files) to your computer or mobile device. We may also collect information using "web beacons" or "tracking pixels" -- electronic images that may be used in our websites or emails that deliver cookies, count visits, understand campaign effectiveness and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon. These technologies are used to improve our email broadcasting program as well as our advertising and promotion programs. You can opt-out of these technologies for advertising by visiting AboutAds.info/choices. See below for information about opting-out from email communications.

Distribution of Information

We do not disclose any personal information collected from you other than to our agents and contractors for site management purposes.  By contract, our agents and contractors will protect your privacy.  In general, however, we may disclose information concerning our web site and its users in aggregate, non-personally identifiable form.

We may also share limited personal information with advertising partners in order to ensure that our ads are relevant to you. (For example, if you're already on our email list, we don't want to show you ads asking you to join our email list.)

Security

We use industry-standard security measures to protect any personal information that you may provide to us. Despite the our adherence to these standards we cannot guarantee 100% protection from the sorts of activities broadly referred to as "hacking" whose consequence might be a loss of electronic privacy. If such a breach were to occur, we would move rapidly to repair the breach, prosecute the trespasser, and notify you of any violation of your privacy.

Privacy Rights for California Residents

California law allows residents of California to request certain details about how their information is shared with third parties. Please contact us at [email protected] if you are a California resident and would like to make such a request.

Do Not Track

Under California Business & Professions Code Section 22575(b) (as amended effective January 1, 2014), California residents are entitled to know how we respond to “Do Not Track” browser settings. We do not not currently take actions to respond to Do Not Track signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard once one is created.

Categories of Personal Information Sold and Disclosed for a Business Purpose

We have not sold your personal information in the 12 months preceding the Effective Date of this Policy.  

Personal information submitted through this website will be disclosed to our service providers and vendors, as governed by nondisclosure agreements with those service providers and vendors.  Your data may also be disclosed with regulatory authorities as required by federal, state, and local laws.  

In the future, we may share your personal information with other nonprofit organizations for campaign business purposes, including fundraising, publicity, sponsorships, e-commerce, or other campaign related activities, and in a manner consistent with applicable law.

As a nonprofit organization, we are not a “business” subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) that goes into effect on January 1, 2020. We do, however, strive to be consistent with the spirit of that law. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]

Unsubscribing from E-mail Communications:

You may unsubscribe from our email communications at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email you received from us. These requests are processed instantly. To comply with the law, however, our contributor records will not be altered and are continuously maintained in a separate secure database.
