Your privacy and security are extremely important to us.
We consider it a privilege when you choose to support Just Zero (collectively, “we”, “us”, or “our”). As such, we want you to understand what kind of information we collect about you, why we collect it, and how we use it. Just Zero does not, and will never, share, distribute, or sell the personal information we collect.
About this Policy
This policy applies solely to the personal information collected through just-zero.org, or individual microsites (collectively referred to as “websites”) hosted by third parties on behalf of Just Zero. The microsites include things like our advocacy platform, donation portal, and event registration pages.

Just Zero only collects the information you voluntarily give to us. We collect, retain, and use personal information you provide to us or give us permission to obtain through our websites, advocacy platform, and donation portal. You voluntarily provide or allow us to obtain this information when you:

This information includes your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and other personally identifiable information you choose to share with us in this context. We also collect and retain information about the actions which you participated in and the content of the messages you sent. This includes petitions, action alerts, and targeted emails.

Information Collected Through Our Websites
Like most websites, certain kinds of information are automatically collected, retained and used when you visit just-zero.org or our microsites and landing pages. This includes:
Log Data – When you visit or use any website, including our websites, your browser or device transmits certain information, which is logged. This data may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser and system type, version and settings, data about your device, which website you came from, search terms used to reach our websites, and the data and time you used our websites.
How We Use Your Information
We use the personal information collected through our websites for the following purposes:
Transactional Information – We use the transaction information you provide us to complete your requested donations, to verify your identity, and to prevent fraud. We also use your contact information such as your email and/or phone number to contact you if there is a problem with your donation. We also use your email to confirm your donation. Using this information is necessary to fulfill your donations.
Advocacy Information – We use the information you provide us when filling our action alerts and petitions to deliver and bring your message to the attention of the legislator, regulatory official, and/or decision maker you choose to contact about the issues that concern you. We include this information when we send your message. This is necessary so that your message can be effective, and it is often required when contacting many government officials. We also keep copies of action alerts you send, which we may quote and put on our websites, and which are identified by the author’s initials and city/state. This helps advance our advocacy objectives and efforts. Just Zero may, with your express permission, also post the content you generate through our action alerts on our websites. This helps empower our advocacy and share a diverse range of views on a given issue.
Cookie Information – We use the information collected through our websites and microsites to the extent they are necessary to offer the functions needed to provide functionality of these sites. We also use Cookie information to remember preferences and settings you have selected when using our websites and microsites. Additionally, Cookie information is used to measure how you use our websites. We collect data on this to test and improve our websites.
You can always contact Just Zero to subscribe to our newsletters and other email alerts. Additionally, when you provide Just Zero with your email address and mailing address, we may contact you and ask you to become a member of Just Zero.
How We Share the Information We Collect
Just Zero may share the personal information collected on or through our websites as follows:

Following the termination or deactivation of your account, membership, or relationship with Just Zero, we may retain your information as needed for any archival, legal, or financial purposes, such as an audit.
