Your internet privacy is important to us. As part of the operation and optimization of Defending Democracy Together’s web site (“defendingdemocracytogether.org”), we gather certain types of information from users. Here, we explain the types of information we gather, and what we do with it.
Our website collects three types of data from you: personal data such as zip code, email address, and demographic information; aggregated data such as information about traffic patterns on defendingdemocracytogether.org (for example, how many users access our website on a daily basis); and financial data, such as data related to your payment method (such as date of donation and donation amount).
Aggregated information, such as which pages you visit and what browser you use, is collected through various means. One of these ways is through an IP address, a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you use the Internet. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from defendingdemocracytogether.org, our servers log your IP address. defendingdemocracytogether.org does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, your session will remain anonymous to us. We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration only.

Your financial information is used to process donations to Defending Democracy Together and Defending Democracy Together, and to handle any donation support requests we might receive from you.
