We collect information from our users in order to provide you with a personalized, useful and efficient experience. The categories of information we collect can include:


Kinds of Data Collection


Personal Information: information you provide that specifically identifies you (such as your name, address, email address, or billing information) and your political positions that is directly linked to personally identifiable information.


Aggregate information: data we collect about the use of our Site or about a group or category of services or users, from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed.


Active Collection: Personal Information may be collected in a number of ways when you visit Swing Donor. We collect certain information you voluntarily provide to us, such as when you fill out a form, send us an email, sign-up to receive email or updates, connect through a social feed, or request information. Such information may include Personal Information.


Passive Data Collection: When you use Swing Donor, some information is automatically collected, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your operating system, the browser type, the address of a referring website, and your activity on our Site. We treat this information as Personal Information if we combine it with or link it to any of the identifying information mentioned above. Otherwise, it is used in the aggregate only, without personal identifiers.


We may also automatically collect certain information through the use of cookies or web beacons. Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive at the request of a website. Among other things, cookies help us improve our Site and your experience. For example, we use cookies to identify you so that, for example, when you return to our site, if you've already completed the questionnaire, you don't have to repeat it in order to access your personalized donation guide. If we link cookies to any personally identifying information, we will treat this information as Personal Information. If you wish to block, erase, or be warned of cookies, please refer to your browser manufacturer to learn about these functions. However, if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect certain features on our Site. Web beacons are small, invisible graphic images that may be used on Swing Donor or in emails relating to Swing Donor to monitor traffic on our Site and to understand how people are using our Site and our various products and services when they are offered on third party sites.

The Site may contain links to other web sites. Swing Donor is not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Policy applies solely to information collected by our Site.
