This Privacy Notice explains who we are, how we collect, share and use Personal information about you, and how you can exercise your privacy rights.

The Notice does not restrict or limit our collection and use of aggregate information.
In most circumstances we are a data processor following the instructions of our third-party partners, the data controllers; for example when you use one of our services to take an action (for example, signing a petition) organized by one or more of our third party partners, our partner will be the data controller and, information you submit as part of the form filling process will be made available to the data controller directly. We have no ability to control, and shall have no responsibility for, how such data controller uses your information. We will not review, share, distribute or reference any personal information controlled by our third-party partners, except as provided in our agreement with our third-party partners, or as may be required by law.
