Last Updated: June 3, 2022

 

This Privacy Policy explains how Make the Road PA (“MRPA”, “we” or “us”) and its subsidiaries and affiliated companies collect, uses, and discloses information about you. This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect when you use our website, mobile application, and other online products and services linking to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Services”).

 

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you an email notification). We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the Services or otherwise interact with us to stay informed about our information practices and the choices available to you.

 

Information Collection

 

Information You Provide to Us

We collect the information you provide directly to us. For example, we may collect information when you make a donation, request information, register to vote, fill out a form, send us an email, sign up to receive updates, sign a petition, or otherwise communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, postal address, phone number, t-shirt size, voter registration information, and other information you choose to provide.

Web beacons (also known as “pixel tags” or “clear GIFs”) are electronic images that may be used in our Services or emails and help deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon. For more information about cookies, and how to disable them, please see “Your Choices” below.

We may also obtain information about you from other sources. For example, we may obtain information about you from Rock the Vote, your public voter file, and other publicly available sources and combine that with information we collect through our Services.

  • With vendors, service providers, and consultants that perform services for us, including data hosting and email management;

  • With organizations, groups, or causes that have similar political viewpoints, principles, or objectives;

  • With your consent or at your direction.

 

We may also share aggregated or anonymized information that cannot reasonably be used to identify you.

Social Sharing Features

The Services may offer social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook “Like” button), which let you share actions you take on our Services on other platforms, and vice versa. Your use of such features enables sharing information with your friends or the public, depending on your privacy settings on the social sharing platforms you use. Please visit the privacy policies of the social sharing platforms you use for more information about the purpose and scope of their data collection and processing.

 

Analytics Services Provided by Others

We may engage others to provide analytics services and serve advertisements on our behalf across the web and in mobile applications. These entities may use cookies, web beacons, device identifiers, and other technologies to collect information about your use of the Services and other websites and applications, including your IP address, web browser, pages viewed, time spent on pages, links clicked, and conversion information. This information may be used by MRPA and others to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver advertising and content targeted to your interests on our Services and other websites, and better understand your online activity. For more information about interest-based ads, or to opt-out of having your web browsing information used for behavioral advertising purposes, you can visit www.aboutads.info/choices.

 

Third-Party Tools

Our Services use third-party tools to provide certain features or to assist with the operation of the Services. These third parties may collect your information directly from you on their own behalf. Under those circumstances, the third party’s privacy policy governs its use of that data. For example, the voter registration tool on the MRPA website is provided and operated by Rock the Vote. Information you provide to them is governed by their privacy policy.

 

Your Choices

 

Cookies

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our Services.

 

Promotional Communications

You may opt-out of receiving emails or text messages from MRPA by following the instructions in those emails or text messages. If you opt-out of emails, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as those about your use of the Services or any donations or transactions.

 

How We Protect Information You Provide

MRPA uses industry-standard security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. Our server is located in a locked, secure environment. Permission to access your information is granted only to you and MRPA employees or contractors who need to know that information to provide services to you. Although we make good faith efforts to store information collected by this website in a secure operating environment, we cannot guarantee complete security.

Links to Other Websites

This privacy policy covers this website and its subdomains. These sites may link to third-party websites. We are not responsible for the content or privacy policies of these third-party sites. We encourage you to read the privacy policies and review the practices of all websites you visit.

Other Disclosure of Your Information

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when we have a good-faith belief release is appropriate to comply with the law (for example, a lawful subpoena), to protect our rights or property, or to protect our donors, artists and supporters from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful conduct, or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.
