Privacy Policy

(Last Updated: August 13, 2012)

Policy Statement

FreedomWorks for America is dedicated to protecting the privacy of our online members and donors. We’ve developed these easy-to-understand Privacy Practices from guidelines established by leading privacy organizations, including eTrust.com and the Better Business Bureau.

Gathering and Usage of Information

FreedomWorks for America collects personal information from you on a voluntary basis and we don’t require it to obtain non-membership access to FreedomWorksForAmerica.org. The types of personal information we collect may include your name, mailing address, email address, and phone number.

We do not sell your email address or phone number to any third parties. Some activities on FreedomWorksForAmerica.org explicitly involve sharing your personal information with a third party, such as your elected officials. If you sign a petition or similar call to action that has the express purpose of sending emails or petitions to Congress, the media, or similar, we will share your personal information with the target of the call to action.

On some occasions, we will make our membership postal mailing list available to allied organizations for the purpose of sending direct mail.

Opt-Out

FreedomWorks for America maintains several opt-out and opt-in email lists, including our weekly newsletter and special state and issue updates. We give you control over these subscriptions and at any time you may “opt-out” and remove your e-mail address from our files. There is an “unsubscribe” process detailed at the bottom of every email, or you can contact us at http://www.freedomworks.org/contact to be removed from our email list.

Cookies

FreedomWorksForAmerica.org uses “cookie” technology to obtain non-personal information from our online visitors, such as browser/computer type, number of visitors, IP address, and site usage. We don’t use cookies to extract personal information.

Public Forums

Security

FreedomWorks for America has taken steps to make all information received from our online visitors as secure as possible against unauthorized access and use. All information is protected by our security measures, which are periodically reviewed.

Ongoing Privacy Efforts
