PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy outlines our practices for collection, use, and disclosure of personal information that is provided to us by you when you use our Site and other County Citizens Defending Freedom USA, Inc. (CCDF-USA) mobile applications that display this policy (the Sites). By using these Sites, you agree that your use of said Sites is governed by this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service. We encourage you to periodically check this Site for updates, as terms may change. We will alert you to changes that have been made by indicating the date the Privacy Policy was last updated. Your continued use of the Site affirms your agreement to any changes we make to this Privacy Policy.

What and How Information is Collected

Voluntary Information: We may collect personal information that you voluntarily provide to us including your name, email address, postal address, phone number, mobile number, and geographic location. You may provide this information when you request information, register as an ambassador, make a purchase, send us an email, sign up to receive email or text message updates, connect through a social feed, fill out a form, or for other purposes. We may also collect demographic information such as gender, date of birth, occupation, employer name, and zip code. When this information is linked to personally identifiable information, it will be treated as voluntary personal information. In limited circumstances, we may collect payment information such as a credit card number where needed to complete a requested service or transaction. Voluntary personal information does not include aggregate data (data about a group or category of users that has been stripped of identifiable information about individual users) that we may collect about the use of the Sites. This policy does not restrict our collection and use of such aggregate information.

By requesting information to your mobile phone, we may obtain the following information from you in connection with our SMS service: your cell phone number, your carrier’s name, and the date, time and content of your messages, as well as other information that you provide. We will use such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Automatically Generated Information: We may also collect non-personally identifiable information that is generated automatically while you are visiting the Site or elsewhere on the Internet when our advertisements are served, also known as log files. This data includes, but is not limited to, information such as IP address, web pages visited before and after visiting the Site, date and time, domain type, type of mobile device you use, your device’s unique ID, web pages you view and links you click on within the Site, and interactions with our advertisements delivered by us or advertisements delivered by a third-party advertising technology vendor. This type of information may be collected using different types of technologies, such as cookies and pixels. An IP address, for example, is a unique identifier that certain electronic devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet. When you visit our Site, we may view the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. We use this information to determine the general physical location of the device and understand from what regions of the world our Site visitors come. We also may use your non-personally identifiable information to enhance our Site.

All Site users remain anonymous unless they choose to give us their personal information. You may elect not to allow us to collect and use this non-personally identifiable data as part of our service by following the opt-out procedures described below.

For example, Google Analytics uses cookies to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information is then used to evaluate visitors’ use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity for CCDF-USA.
