Information that identifies you may be shared as follows:
Identifying information you provide when you send a message via our site
is provided to the persons receiving the messages
Contributions and purchases by credit-card are processed by Amazon.com or
PayPal.com, which receive your information for the purpose of credit-card
processing. That information is subject to those providers' privacy policies.
For contributions processed by Amazon, unless you tell Amazon to share your
contact information with us, we receive only the date, time, and amount of
the contribution -- no information about you (so we don't know who made the
donation). We don't receive your credit-card information from either Amazon
If you tell us we may share your information (e.g., with a partner activist
organization), we may do so. This includes putting or leaving a check-mark
in a check-box on one of our pages that says you may receive information from
us or our partner organizations.
Except as indicated above, we don't share any user-identifying information
with any other parties. (It is conceivable that we could be forced by legal
action to share information with a government agency.)
When you enter your identifying information on a letter-writing page, it is stored
on the computer you are using. A copy of your letter is sent to us, including
your identifying information; we may store those letters in files designed to
be inaccessible by anyone but us.
We may occasionally send an informative message to users who have provided
their email addresses to this site (e.g., to alert you when a new letter-writing
campaign has been started). We recognize that our users don't want quantities
of unsolicited mail, so we will be extremely judicious about this. You may opt
out of any such mailings by writing to
remove-AT-progressiveportal.org [change "-AT-" to "@"].
Also, if you un-check the permissions box at the bottom of any letter-writing
page before clicking "SEND LETTER!" you will be removed from our lists.
Security: We maintain extensive security throughout our operations.
For payments, you'll be asked for account information only on pages that encrypt
(scramble) the information before transmission. We maintain very strong security
against computer infections, including multiple anti-virus screens updated daily
and other measures. Our Web servers have extensive security and power back-up.
Please send any questions or comments to
