Privacy Policy

At Pinal County Democrats, we make every effort to ensure the privacy and security of information that you share with us online. Our privacy policy explains the information practices we use at pinaldemocrats.org:
  • How we protect your information
  • How we use your information
  • How to contact us about privacy

    How do we protect your information?

    Our website has a number of security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of the information under our control. Our computer systems are professionally managed with access limited only to those persons and organizations necessary to its proper functioning. This access applies to all electronic and physical security measures. Highly sensitive data including credit card information is additionally secured through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. Our servers are located in a locked, secure environment. Additionally, we never store your credit card information in our database at any time.

    How do we use the information you provide?

    On registration, sign-up and contribution forms on pinaldemocrats.org, we may ask for your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. We may also ask who, if anyone, referred you to the site so that we can credit those who are organizing volunteer support or fundraising for Pinal County Democrats. We will use your e-mail address to provide you news and information about Pinal County Democrats. We may also use your zip code and state to send you e-mail messages about upcoming events or activities in your area.

    On occasion, we may also use the information that you provide online to contact you for other purposes or to solicit you for contributions. When you register or sign-up online, we may share your contact information with successor organizations and other like-minded Democratic candidates and organizations, and they may contact you. When you make a contribution to us, we may also exchange your contributor information with successor organizations and other like-minded Democratic candidates and organizations, and they may solicit you (see below for additional information regarding your contributor information). We will not sell your information to any third party under any circumstances.

    When you contribute money online: We are required by Arizona State election law to collect and report to the Secretary of State the name, mailing address, occupation and employer of individuals whose contributions exceed $100 in an election cycle. These records are available to the public. However, they cannot be used by other organizations for fundraising. We also make a note of your telephone number and email address, which helps us to contact you quickly if follow-up on your contribution is necessary under Federal election law.

    When you sign one of our petitions: When you sign one of our petitions, we treat your name, city, state, and any comments as public information. We may, for example, provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to national leaders, without disclosing email addresses. We may also make comments available to the press and public online, identifying only your city and state.

    When you share content with your friends: When you forward a page, email, or introduce Pinal County Democrats to your friends, using our viral sharing features, we treat that exchange as a personal private exchange. We will not, under any circumstances, collect ("harvest") the name, email address, or any other personal information from the sharing of our website content.

    Cookies: A cookie is a tiny text file that is stored on your computer by pinaldemocrats.org. We use cookies to tailor your experience on our site according to the preferences you have specified. When you visit pinaldemocrats.org, we only access the cookie file that we have stored on your computer. We cannot and do not access any information stored in a cookie by other websites.

    Unsubscribing from Email Communications

    If you wish to unsubscribe from our communications, please email us at unsubscribe@pinaldemocrats.org. We will regularly process these requests. To comply with federal election law, however, our contributor records will be continuously maintained in a separate secure database.

    Use of Photos and Videos

    Pinal County Democrats ("Committee") regularly takes photographs and video ("Images") of campaign events. Unless a participant or attendee requests otherwise, his/her attendance at, or participation in, an event with the Committee or the Candidate is considered a release to use images obtained during that event for any lawful purpose, including on the Committee's website or in other promotional materials. For the purposes of this policy, “images” includes any still, digital, video, and photographic images, recordings, or drawings, which may include sound or other audio clips.

    The Committee does not require specific permission from any or all individuals appearing in photographs or video of the audience at an event where specific individuals are not easily identifiable. Your attendance or participation is considered a release to use said images for any lawful purpose. The Committee reserves the right to use or not to use images of this type, in its sole discretion, without seeking any further permission.

    In the event that an image of a child is used, the Committee will not disclose the child's name, age, location, or other "directory information" without specific written and verifiable consent by the child's parent or guardian.

    All images, both solicited and unsolicited, which are submitted to the Committee become the exclusive property of the Committee. You understand that you will not receive compensation or other consideration for any images. You agree that you will not assert any claim against the Committee, its successor entities or other parties who use such images, and you relieve the Committee of liability for its use of the image(s).

    By submitting images, you guarantee that you have obtained the permission of all persons contained in the image(s), and that it was taken lawfully. You further understand that images of minors must follow the guidelines listed above. The Committee reserves the right to edit and use any images as it sees fit including but not limited to advertising or other communications in any media, edited or unedited. You waive any right to inspect or approve the finished images or any printed or electronic use of the images on the part of the Committee.
