Yes on 805, Inc. is committed to protecting the personal information that you provide and entrust to us when using the Yes on 805 Site. This online privacy statement (the “Privacy Statement”) describes how we treat all user data collected by Yes on 805 during your visit to the Yes on 805 Site, both technical data that is automatically collected and voluntarily submitted data. For purposes of this Privacy Statement, the “Yes on 805 Site” is the website whose home page is www.yeson805.org. This is not the privacy statement applicable to websites linked to and from the Yes on 805 Site. See also “Third–Party Functionality” to learn about third–party optional functionality that appears on the Yes on 805 Site.

Yes on 805 may occasionally update this Privacy Statement. We will post any changes on this web page, so be sure to check back periodically. If we do make material changes, we will post a notice on our home page that the Privacy Statement has been modified and provide a link to the revised Privacy Statement. Any information that you submit after a change has been posted will be subject to the new provisions.

We collect two types of user data: (1) technical data that is automatically collected from all visitors to the Yes on 805 Site (“Automatically Collected Data”); and (2) data that you voluntarily submit to us (described below under “Voluntarily Submitted Data”).  By using the Yes on 805 Site and submitting such Data, you consent to receive information and updates regarding Yes on 805 activities from us or our partners (including but not limited to agencies, organizations, community leaders, and service providers engaged in campaign outreach and the criminal justice system) (“Coalition Partners”) .

Automatically Collected Data. We automatically collect and store Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses and domain names of the originating visitor’s computer on our server and may know some information you have previously provided through cookies. (See the section on “Cookies” below for more information.) We also track the number and frequency of hits per page, as well as length of website visit, using IP addresses and/or session cookies. In addition, if you come to the Yes on 805 Site from a website link, we may also identify the source of that link.

Voluntarily Submitted Data. We may collect and store Voluntarily Submitted Data, including personal data, that you voluntarily provide, such as your name and postal address, phone number, e–mail address, and similar information (“Personal Data”), and transactional information, such as giving and action–taking history, when you participate in certain activities on the Yes on 805 Site, including (but not limited to) when you:

  • participate in any activity that requires your Voluntarily Submitted Data.

Other Collected Data. We also may collect data concerning your use of the Yes on 805 Site such as by using an embedded image in an email in order to track whether you open our email communications and using a URL contained in an email we send to you that enables us to identify that you have taken an action using a webpage. We may use this data for a number of reasons, including taking account of your interests in our work so that you do not have to miss the opportunity for us to inform you about, and offer you the chance to take action concerning the Yes on 805 issues you care about most, and in order to simplify the process of your signing petitions and filling out surveys.
