SCOPE AND APPLICATION
MomsRising Together and MomsRising Education Fund (collectively, “MomsRising,” “us,” or “we”) understand the importance of our users’ privacy. This Policy describes the treatment of information we collect from and about you when you visit momsrising.org and its subdomains, or use our other websites or services that contain a link to, or otherwise reference, this Policy (collectively, the “Services”). This Policy tells you how we use, share, and protect your information, and what choices you have about how your information is used.
COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
Information you provide to us
When you choose to make use of some features of the Services, such as signing up for our email list, sharing your stories and experiences, taking action on a campaign, and making donations, you will be asked to provide information, including personal information such as your email address, name, physical address, city and state of residence, and phone number.
Information you provide to a Giving Platform
Information Collected Automatically
In addition to information you choose to provide to us, we and our service providers automatically collect certain additional information. For example:
- IP Address and Other Identifiers. When you access and interact with our Services, MomsRising and our service providers may collect information about your visit in order to permit you to connect to and obtain the Services and to understand the frequency with which specific visitors visit various parts of our Services. For example, we may collect your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, which identifies the computer or service provider that you use to access the Services, or information about your browser type, unique device identifiers, and other software and hardware information. If you access the Services through a mobile or other similar device, we may collect your mobile device identifier, geolocation data (including your precise location), or other transactional information for that device. We may combine this information collected automatically with other information that we have collected, including personal information.
You have the choice to set your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set (each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) It is up to you whether to allow us to send you cookies. However, if you do not accept cookies from us, your ability to use some aspects of our Services will be limited.
- Web beacons and other tracking technologies. We and third parties including our service providers may use other tracking tools, including so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “web bugs,” “clear GIFs,” etc. (collectively “Web Beacons”) to collect information about your activities on the Services. These are small electronic images embedded in web content (including online ads) and email messages, and are ordinarily not visible to users. Like cookies, Web Beacons enable us and our service providers to track pages and content (including ads) accessed and viewed by users. Also, when we send HTML-formatted (as opposed to plain text) emails to you, Web Beacons may be embedded in such emails to allow us to monitor readership levels so that we can identify aggregate trends and individual usage, to provide our audiences with more relevant content or engagement opportunities. Web Beacons in emails may recognize activities such as when an email was opened, how many times an email was forwarded, which links in the email were clicked, etc. Web Beacons cannot be declined when delivered via a regular web page. However, Web Beacons can be refused when delivered via email. If you do not wish to receive Web Beacons via email, you will need to disable HTML images or refuse HTML emails via your email software.
Our Partners and Service Providers
MomsRising relies on a number of other companies, agents, and/or contractors to perform services on our behalf or to assist us in operating MomsRising and providing the Services to you. For example, we may engage such service providers to provide marketing, advertising, communications, website hosting, infrastructure and IT services, to personalize and optimize the Services, process donations, provide customer service, collect debts, and analyze and enhance data. In the course of providing such services to us, these other companies may have access to information about you, including personal information.
