Privacy Policy

1. Introduction

This Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how Equal Voice Action (EVA) collects personally identifying information about you from its various websites(the “Site”)and how it uses and discloses that personal information. The Site means the website www.equalvoiceaction.com, which is operated on behalf of Equal Voice Action, a nonprofit corporation existing under the laws of the state of Washington, U.S.A., address below.

This Privacy Policy applies to information that personally identifies you (“personal information”) collected on the Site.

USE OF OUR SITE OR PROVISION OF ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION CONSTITUTES AGREEMENT TO THIS POLICY. Do not use the Site or provide information (or allow others to do so on your behalf) if you (and your principal if you are acting as agent) do not agree with all of the Terms of Use including this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is part of and incorporated into the Terms of Use for the Site, which is the contract between you and EVA governing use of the Site. Parts of the Terms of Use affect this Privacy Policy, so please review them prior to using the Site. Terms used but not defined in this Policy have the definitions in the Terms of Use.

2. Information We Collect That You Provide

It is your choice whether to provide personal information. Your decision not to provide information might limit or eliminate certain functions of the Site or your ability to participate. Other information is up to your good judgment. For example, do not provide personal information about yourself in a post or forum that could be misused by others and do not provide personal information about others without their permission.

Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we will keep your personal information private and will not share it with other third parties unless such disclosure is necessary to: (i) comply with a court order or other legal process, (ii) to protect our rights or property, or (iii) to enforce our Terms of Use. Please keep in mind that although we take reasonable precautions to safeguard your personal information, no amount of protection can guarantee its security.

3. Profile Information

In order to access certain features of the Site, we ask you to provide certain personally identifiable information about yourself (“Profile Information”). By providing this information, you consent to our collection and use of it, as described in this Privacy Policy and in accordance with our Terms of Use.

The Profile Information that we collect may include your name, location (city and state), email address, and other optional information such as but not limited to interests, skills and employment history.

We do not collect any of this information about you when you visit the Site unless you provide us with the information.

4. Payment Information

Some of our services are fee-based, and therefore, we will collect payment information from you, such as credit card numbers and billing addresses. Because payment transactions on the Site are outsourced to third-party service providers, it is necessary to provide access to your payment information to these third parties. In those cases, we will take necessary steps to ensure that the providers do not use or otherwise disclose any information we collect about you, except for the purpose of fulfilling their service obligations to us.

5. Information We Collect Not Provided by You

In order to monitor the effectiveness of this site, identify areas of interest, and consider potential improvements, we also track certain actions you take on the Site, such as:

Connecting to individuals or organizations
Becoming an administrator
Saving searches and ads
RSVPing for an event
Publishing content

Like many other websites, we may collect some information from visitors to the Site through the use of “cookies,” “web beacons” and other tracking mechanisms. For example, we may use cookies to:

Store your membership credentials to make it easier for you to log in when you come back to the Site
Track which sections and pages you visit to help us gauge the effectiveness of the Site or our content
Collect your computer’s IP address and non-personally identifying information about its operating system

If you do not want to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject them. However, if you turn cookies off, you may not have access to some of the Site’s services and features. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you access the Site.

6. Third-Party Links

We may provide links on the Site to other sites of interest. We do not endorse the content of those links or guarantee that they will abide by the terms of this Privacy Policy. Your use of these third-party sites is subject to the terms and conditions and privacy policies of the providers of those sites. We encourage our members to be aware when they leave our Site, and to read the privacy policies of other sites, especially sites that collect personal information.

If you agree to participate in a Benefit provided by a third party, you may be asked to provide personal information in order to receive the Benefit. This information is provided at your own discretion, and we assume no risk or responsibility for the use of that information.Note that this Privacy Policy does not cover the collection and use of information by such third parties.

7. What We Do With Personal Information Collected

We use reasonable security measures to help protect your personal information and prevent unauthorized access to and improper use of any information we collect. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to safeguard your nonpublic personal information. However, no website or Internet network can be completely secure. Although we take steps to secure your information, we do not guarantee – and you should not expect – that your personal information will always remain secure.

We cannot control the actions of other Site members or third-party organizations.

We keep your account information on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as your password), the information is encrypted using secure socket layer (SSL) technology. We also reserve the right to analyze accounts for fraudulent or irregular behavior, and we may limit use of site features in response to possible signs of abuse.

Equal Voice Action is using ExtendedSSL Certificate as a security feature for the EVA website. ExtendedSSL uses 2048-bit encryption and works with all browsers, mobile phones, and devices.

8. Consent to Electronic Notice If There Is a Security Breach

If we are required to provide notice of unauthorized access or other invasion of certain security systems, you agree that we (or they) may do so when required (or voluntarily) by posting notice on our Site or sending notice to any email address we have for you, in our (or their) good faith discretion. You agree that notice to you will count as notice to others for whom you are acting, and agree to pass the notice on to them.

9. Children

We do not want to collect information from children. Do not provide any personal information unless you are at least 13 years of age, and please caution your children not to provide any. If a child under 13 has provided personal information, a parent or guardian may so inform us by writing us at our address below and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete it from our database, subject to applicable law and this Privacy Policy.

10. Identity Theft

If you know, or suspect, that your credit card, username or password has been lost, stolen or used without your authorization, you need to contact us immediately at the address listed below. Upon notification, we will take reasonable steps to mitigate any damage that may have been caused. You are responsible for the safety and security of your username and password. You should log out after each session you have with the site, and you shouldn’t share this information.

11. Amendments

We will be changing what we do and how and why we un-capitalize data periodically — this Policy describes what we currently envision, but that will change as we change. You agree that this Policy amends and replaces any previous privacy policy. We may further amend all or part of this Policy in the same way that we make amendments to our Terms of Use, and such amended versions will be posted on this page.

12. Our Terms of Use and This Privacy Policy
