Data not shared with us
For some functionality on our website, we need to store data on your device. This data stays on your device, and is never sent to us.
Example 1: When you fill out a form, we save your contact details locally on your device. This way, you do not need to fill out your contact details again if you want to fill out another form.
Example 2: We keep track of what actions you have taken on our website, to dynamically change the content that we show to you. So if you sign up for a certain campaign, we will not show you the same campaign again. Instead, we will show you another call to action. This all happens on your device, without sending us any data.
Data shared with us & our partners
If you fill out any of our signup forms, we store your contact information and any other data you provided in our CRM database called Action Network.
If you make a donation, we store your contact information and any other data you provided on our donation platform called Donorbox.
