Information Collection and Use
LPCaucus Account Information.
Account Enrollment. When you create an account with the Libertarian Pragmatist Caucus, we collect information including your name and contact information. When you enroll, you will also 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 enroll is used for purposes such as establishing your LPCaucus account, ensuring that you receive credit for donations, communicating with you about your account, sending you any updates you request, and notifying you of special offers and promotions we think may be of interest to you.
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.
Account Security. 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. You should guard your password and sign-on information carefully and not provide them to anyone.
Where permitted by law, when you use the Services 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.
