This Privacy Policy describes the ways in which the Reform Government Surveillance (RGS) coalition collects, uses, and discloses personal information through our website. Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact you, such as your name or email address, as well as other information that we associate with you. By using this website, you consent to the processing of your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Personal Information

We collect the personal information you provide us, such as when you sign up to receive updates, send us a comment, or otherwise contact us. The RGS coalition uses such information to provide the services you request, respond to your communications, improve our offerings, and advance our mission. We will not share personal information with our service providers and vendors unless necessary to improve the website experience or performance.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

Like many websites, the RGS website may use cookies, image tags, and similar technologies. A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is stored on your computing device. Image tags (also called web beacons, web bugs, clear GIFs or single-pixel GIFs), which work in conjunction with cookies, are small image files that may be located on select pages of our website(s), or within web-based emails that we may send. We may also collect your IP address and other information that your browser makes available as a function of visiting our website.

We use these technologies to learn how our website is used, save your preferences, and improve the performance of our website. These technologies do not collect your name, email address or other contact information. We will not share even the non-personally identifiable information collected via these technologies with outside groups other than with vendors to improve our offerings or directly advance our mission.

Third-Party Links and Content

This website may include links to other websites or Internet-based services offered by third parties that the Reform Government Surveillance does not own, operate, or control. This Privacy Policy does not apply to those third party offerings. We encourage you to read any privacy statement available at those third party locations to learn how your personal information may be collected and used.

Children’s Privacy

The RGS website is not directed to children younger than thirteen years old. We do not knowingly collect, use, or disclose the personal information of any person under the age of thirteen. If you believe that we have inadvertently collected personal information from a child, please contact us, and we will endeavor to destroy such personal information immediately.

Security

We make good faith efforts to protect and secure any personal information collected through this website. However, we cannot guarantee complete protection against unauthorized access. Please note that personal information sent over an unsecured Internet connection is vulnerable to unauthorized access by third parties, but we do our best to prevent such breaches from occurring.

The RGS coalition may update its Privacy Policy periodically. If we modify the Privacy Policy in a material way, we will post the new Privacy Policy on this page. Please contact us at info@reformgovernmentsurveillance.com if you have any questions about this Privacy Policy.
