COLOR OF CHANGE VOTER REGISTRATION APPLICATION PRIVACY POLICY

1. How We Use Your Information

When you sign up to participate in VR App, if you are already a Color Of Change member, our use of your information is governed by the Privacy Policy on Color Of Change’s website. If you sign up to be a Color Of Change supporter in the course of using VR App, our use of your own information is governed by the Privacy Policy on Color Of Change’s website.

We will not, without your express permission, share your e-mail address or telephone number or other personally identifiable information with any organization or company EXCEPT for the following:

  • Color Of Change PAC, the sister organization of Color Of Change
  • Affiliated Third Parties – for example, our database administrators or organizations that provide extra organizers at an urgent time – for the sole purpose of helping us do our work. These groups do not share your personal information or use it for any purpose other than as instructed by Color of Change.
  • Third Party Administrators, such as organizations we engage to facilitate large distribution of messages. The content of these emails will be from Color Of Change and these third parties do not have direct access to your personally identifiable information.
2. Information Relating to Your Google Contacts

In using VR App, you will be prompted to and provided the opportunity to find friends and others in your Google contacts list who are not registered to vote. You will be notified of who those unregistered contacts are, and will be provided an opportunity to send a message to them, automatically, through VR App, about how to register to vote through an online platform not operated by Color of Change. Your communication with these persons will take place through VR App but Color Of Change will not ever contact those persons unless (i) they have opted in or opt-in to receive Color of Change emails or messages on their own initiative, separate from being contacted through the VR App; or (ii) they register to vote through the third-party online platform to which they are directed by VR App and provide consent to be contacted by Color of Change in the future about voting-related matters.

3. Children

Color Of Change complies with the Children's’ Online Privacy Protection Act. Color Of Change does not solicit and does not accept personally identifying information from any person less than 13 years of age. Visitors to this site who are under 13 years of age should not use this site except under the supervision and with the assistance of their parent or legal guardian, and should never submit any personally identifying information to the site.

Cookies and Data Tracking

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Some parts of this site may be password-protected. We may use a cookie (cookies reside on your computer and are under the control of your browser) to help us compile aggregate data about visitors to the site and their interaction with the site for the purposes of improving the operation of the site and/or offering better site experiences and tools in the future. We may also use cookies to enable you to return to password-protected areas of the website without having to re-enter your password. If you wish to disable these cookies, the help portion of the tool bar on most browsers will tell you how do that. If you set your browser to disable cookies, however, you may not be able to access certain parts of this site.

We may also use third-party services such as Google Analytics. This helps us understand traffic patterns and know if there are problems with our website. We may also use embedded images in emails to track open rates for our mailings, so that we can tell which mailings appeal most to Color Of Change supporters.

URLs contained in emails may contain an ID that enables us to correctly identify the person who takes an action using a web page. We may occasionally present a shortened URL that references a longer URL which contains an id—we do this to simplify the display, to prevent links from becoming broken when copied, and to ensure compatibility with email programs which do not handle long URLs. When a shortened URL is displayed in an email, you will see the full URL in the browser's address bar when you access the page.

Please note that third party vendors, including Google, may show Color Of Change-sponsored ads on the Internet. Those third party vendors (including Google) use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to our website. Users may opt out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting http://www.google.com/privacy/ads/

Advertising

We may place online advertising with third-party vendors, including Google, which will be shown on other sites on the internet. In some cases, those third-party vendors may decide which ads to show you based on your prior visits to the site. At no time will you be personally identified to those third-party vendors, nor will any of the information you share with us be shared with those third-party vendors. If you prefer to opt out of the use of these third-party cookies on the site, you can do so by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt out page.

Color Of Change does not use cookies to track what specific pages an individual site visitor views. Please note, however, that third party vendors, including Google, may show Color Of Change-sponsored ads on the Internet. Those third party vendors (including Google) use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to our website. Users may opt out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting http://www.google.com/privacy/ads/
