DATED: August 17, 2020
Before you use or submit any information in connection with the Services, carefully review this Policy. By using the Services, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your information as outlined below.
Information We Collect
We collect information about you when you affirmatively give information to us, such as when you provide us with your name and email address. Sometimes you may actually be giving information to a third party vendor who collects the information for us. This happens because we don’t have the capability to handle everything on our own. We also collect information from you from your browser or device through your passive behavior using our Services.
Information You Provide Affirmatively
We collect personal information from you in a variety of ways, such as when you add your name to petitions, public comments, and other similar actions; or when you communicate with us through the Website or via email. Sometimes you provide the information to a trusted third party vendor on our behalf instead of directly to us, but that vendor uses your information only for the purpose for which it was provided.
Information that Is Passively or Automatically Collected
Device and Usage Information
When you visit the Website, we may automatically receive and record information from your computer or mobile device. This information allows us to understand how people are navigating and using our Website and Services, and how we can improve your experience based on the information we collect. As described further below, we may collect and analyze information such as:
- IP addresses, location information, unique device identifiers, IMEI and TCP/IP address, and other information about your computer or device(s), browser types, browser language, operating system, mobile device carrier information, the state or country from which you accessed the Services; and
- information related to the ways in which you interact with the Services, such as: referring and exit web pages and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages and content viewed and the order of those pages, statistical information about the use of the Services, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time you used the Services, the frequency of your use of the Services, error logs, and other similar information.
We may use third-party analytics providers and technologies, such as web server logs, cookies and tracking pixels, to help us collect the data described above. A web server log is a file where website activity is stored. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer when you visit a website that enables us to recognize your computer; store your preferences and settings; enhance your user experience by delivering content and advertisements specific to your inferred interests; perform searches and analytics; and assist with security administrative functions. Some cookies are placed in your browser cache while those associated with Flash technologies are stored with your Adobe Flash Player files. Tracking pixels (sometimes referred to as web beacons or clear GIFs) are tiny electronic tags with a unique identifier embedded in websites, online ads and/or email, and that are designed to provide usage information like ad impressions or clicks, measure popularity of the Services and associated advertising, and to access user cookies. We also may include Web beacons in email messages, newsletters and other electronic communications to determine whether the message has been opened and for other analytics, personalization and advertising. As we adopt additional technologies, we may also gather additional information through other methods.
You can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please consult the “Help” section of your browser for more information (e.g., Internet Explorer; Microsoft Edge; Google Chrome; Mozilla Firefox; or Apple Safari). You can also manage the use of Flash technologies, including cookies and local storage objects with the Flash management tools available at Adobe’s website. Please note that by blocking any or all cookies, you may not have access to certain features or offerings of the Services.
How We Use Your Information
We may use the information shared for the purposes for which you provided it, as well as:
- To maintain and improve our Website and Services. We use the data you provide to improve and tailor your experience with the Website and Services, including:
- To recognize and authenticate you on the Services;
- To initiate or to provide the features, services and products available through the Services;
- To improve the content and features of the Services or develop new Services;

- For internal research and reporting.

Our Email List
When you provide us with your email address, you will be added to our email list and you will start receiving email communications from Supermajority PAC, unless you opt out. All marketing communications contain directions for how to unsubscribe should you wish to stop receiving marketing email. You can also send us an email at email@example.com and ask to be removed from our email list.
When We Disclose Your Information
We may disclose and/or share your information to or with third parties under the following circumstances:
- Consent. We may disclose your information to any third parties with your consent.
- Service Providers. We may provide access to or share your information with select third parties who perform services on our behalf. These providers use the information for the purpose it was shared.
- With Like-Minded Organizations. Supermajority PAC may share the information collected through the Services (such as names and email addresses) with like-minded organizations that are working on similar issues.
- Protection of Supermajority PAC and Others. Supermajority PAC may access, preserve, and disclose your information you submit or make available for inclusion on the Services, if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access, preservation, or disclosure is permitted by this Policy or reasonably necessary or appropriate for any of the following reasons:
- to comply with legal process;
- to enforce this Policy, including investigation of potential violations thereof;
- to respond to your requests for customer service; and/or
- to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Supermajority PAC, its agents and affiliates, its users, and the public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection, and spam/malware prevention, and similar purposes.
- Aggregated Data. We may from time to time share aggregated data collected through the Services with others. No information will contain personally-identifiable information.
- Organizational Transfers. As we continue to develop our organization, we may acquire, merge or partner with other organizations. In such transactions (including in contemplation of such transactions, e.g., due diligence) user information may be among the transferred assets. If any of Supermajority PAC’s assets are sold or transferred to a third party, information collected through the Services (including your email address) would likely be one of the transferred business assets.
Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data
The laws in some jurisdictions require companies to tell you about the legal grounds they rely on to use or disclose your personal data. To the extent those laws apply, our legal grounds for processing your personal data are as follows:
- Legitimate Interests. In many cases, we handle personal data on the ground that it furthers our legitimate interests in activities such as the following in ways that are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected individuals:
- Customer service
- Protecting our users, personnel and property
- Analyzing and improving our business
- Managing legal issues
- Legal Compliance. We need to use and disclose personal data in certain ways to comply with our legal obligations.
- Consent. Where required by law, and in some other cases, we handle personal data on the basis of consent. Where we handle your personal data on the basis of consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent.
We may use third-party web analytics services (such as those of Google Analytics) in connection with our Services to collect and analyze the information discussed above, and to engage in auditing, research or reporting. The information (including your IP address) collected by various analytics technologies described in the “Device and Usage Information” section will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the Services, including by noting the third-party website from which you arrive, analyzing usage trends, assisting with fraud prevention, and providing certain features to you. Information about how Google uses information collected from sites that use its services is located here. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on by clicking here.
If you receive an email from us, we may use certain analytics tools, such as clear GIFs, to capture data such as when you open our message or click on any links or banners our email contains. This data allows us to assess the effectiveness of our communications and marketing campaigns to help us reach and grow our Supermajority PAC community.
Notice Concerning Do-Not-Track Signals
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. We do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT. You can learn more about Do Not Track here.
Your Choices and Rights
Individuals in the European Economic Area and many other jurisdictions have certain legal rights to obtain confirmation of whether we hold personal data about them, to access personal data we hold about them, and to obtain its correction, update, amendment, or deletion in appropriate circumstances. You may also have rights to object to our handling of your personal data, restrict our processing of your personal data, and to withdraw any consent you have provided. To exercise these rights, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the nature of your request. While we strongly encourage you to first raise any questions or concerns about your personal data with us, you also have a right to contact the relevant supervisory authority.
Many of the rights described here are subject to significant limitations and exceptions under applicable law (e.g., objections to the processing of personal data, and withdrawals of consent, typically will not have retroactive effect).
Our computer systems are currently based in the United States, and your personal data will be processed in the United States, which may not offer the same level of protection as the privacy laws of your jurisdiction.
The Services are intended for general audiences and not for children under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have collected personal information (as defined by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) from children under the age of 13, we will take reasonable steps to delete it as soon as practicable.
When you give us your information, you are trusting us with your private information. We are committed to honoring that relationship by investing in best-in-class data protection technology. We have implemented administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and/or alteration of your information. These safeguards vary based on the sensitivity of the information that we collect and store. However, we cannot and do not guarantee that these measures will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use, or disclose your information since despite our efforts, no Internet and/or other electronic transmissions can be completely secure.
We will hold your information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes set forth in this Policy or as long as we are legally required or permitted to do so. Information may persist in copies made for backup and business continuity purposes for additional time.
Third-Party Links and Services
The Services may contain links to or “frame” third-party websites, applications, and other services. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites and services. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Services and to read the privacy statements of each and every site they visit that collects their information.
Your California Privacy Rights
California law permits visitors who are California residents to request certain information once per year regarding our disclosure of “personal information” (as that term is defined under applicable California law) to third parties for such third parties’ direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to email@example.com or write to us at Supermajority PAC, P.O. Box 1014, New York, NY 10272.
Being Removed from Our Lists
If you wish to stop receiving marketing emails, you will have to email firstname.lastname@example.org or click the unsubscribe link in the footer of the email. When you unsubscribe from marketing communications we will retain some basic data, including your email and phone number (if provided), so we know not to contact you.
If you want your data completely erased, please indicate so by e-mailing email@example.com. Erasing your data may result in unsolicited communications in the future because you will no longer be in our system. If you have any questions about our Policy, you can contact us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our staff is here to read and respond to any questions, requests, or inquiries in a timely manner.
We will continue to evaluate this Policy as we update and expand the Services and our offerings, and we may make changes to the Policy accordingly. The date at the top of this page indicates the last time changes were made. You should check this page periodically for updates. If we make material changes to this Policy, we will provide you with notice as required by law. Your continued use of the Services will signify acceptance of the terms of the updated Policy.
