Privacy Policy

Effective Date: 28 March 2021

The Libertarian Pragmatist Caucus ("LPCaucus", "we", "us" or "our") understands the importance of protecting your personal information. This Privacy Policy ("Policy") explains what information we collect when you interact with our website, email, and social media ("Services"), why we collect it, and how you can update, manage, export, and delete your information.

We may periodically make changes to this Policy. We will post any changes and they will become effective when posted. If you continue to use our Services, you agree to any updates of this Policy.

What Information Do We Collect?


Account Information.

When you create an account for the Libertarian Pragmatist Caucus, we collect your name and contact information. You will have an opportunity to sign up for LPCaucus email updates about upcoming elections, caucus events, fundraising opportunities, and other communications. The information you provide when you join the caucus is used for purposes such as establishing your account, assuring you receive credit for donations, communicating with you about your account, sending you any updates you request, and notifying you of caucus updates.

Children age 13 and older may sign up for a Libertarian Pragmatist Caucus account if they enroll themselves. However, any donations made by children must be made with the child's own money and not as a pass-through for an adult’s monetary contributions. Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to sign up for the Libertarian Pragmatist Caucus.

When you sign up on the LPCaucus website, you will be asked to select a password or sign up through single-sign-on (SSO) with Facebook or Twitter.


Email.

You may be signed up to receive email updates regarding upcoming elections and opportunities to donate or volunteer for the LPCaucus or other third parties. We will ask for your consent to receive email marketing where required by law. Please see below regarding your choices for this email marketing.


Automatic collection.

We may collect your information automatically through the use of a cookie, a very small piece of data, in your browser. It helps our Services remember information about your visit and optimize your experience.

When you sign into your LPCaucus account, we also use a session cookie to authenticate your login information. This cookie will remain until you close your browser window or logout so you can enjoy the personalized features of our Services.

LPCaucus also works with third-party services that use cookies and other similar technologies to collect and analyze information about user activities on our website, which helps us to understand the use and operation of our website. Our third-party services collect and analyze information about users’ activities on our site.

Our emails may include tracking technologies, which allow us to determine whether our visitors have opened and/or clicked on links in emails sent by us. We use that information to better provide our Services to you and make sure we are sending you information you care about.

Most modern web browsers provide you a way to restrict cookies on websites - if you are uncomfortable with the use of cookies within our Services, we recommend you look into how to turn off the use of cookies within your web browser.

What information do we disclose?

We may share automatically-collected information with others that has been aggregated and/or de-identified. Additionally, we may disclose personal information to third parties based on your consent or your intentional direction, which may be obtained in writing, online, or orally.

The personal information we collect is stored on secure servers. Payment card information and passwords you provide to us online are secured for transmission and storage using industry standard measures and are not accessible by us.

How can you access your information?

To make a request to access personal information about you we hold, you should contact LPCaucus using the contact information below. We may require you to verify your identity and tell us what information you wish to obtain.

We reserve the right to limit the personal information we provide in response to your request or charge a fee to cover the cost locating, retrieving, reviewing and copying any material requested, where permitted by applicable law.

There are certain circumstances in which we will refuse a request for access to personal information, including if the request would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others. If LPCaucus refuses your request for access to your personal information, we will provide reasons for the refusal.

How can I opt out?


Email.

If you no longer want to receive such email marketing, you must opt out with each of these third parties directly.
