Partnership for Proactive Health, Inc. (“P4PH,” “we,” “our”) takes many steps to protect your privacy when you visit the P4PH website (“Site”). In order to advance our outreach programs, and to provide you with a better experience while you are on the P4PH Site, we do allow some data collection and tracking to take place. How and when we do so is explained below.
Our Collection and Use of Information About You
Passively Collected Data
Like most websites, we may automatically receive and record information in our server logs from your browser when you visit the Site. The information that we collect with these automated methods may include your IP address, cookie information, browser type, system type, and the referring URL. We use this type of information to measure and improve the performance of our site. On occasion, we also access this type of information to investigate or maintain the stability and security of the Site.
Voluntarily Submitted Data
Certain pages on the P4PH site may invite you to share personally-identifying information, such as your name, address, email address, or telephone number. Sharing personal information will allow you to make a donation, join our email list, sign a petition, or participate in other similar online activities. We may use voluntarily-submitted data to:
- Fulfill your orders or transactions;
- Contact you about other P4PH activities or news, or about opportunities to support P4PH; and/or
- Deliver content to you on platforms such as social media, other websites, search results pages and mobile apps.
When We May Share Your Information With Other Organizations
When we give you an opportunity to voluntarily submit information about yourself, we may give you the option of indicating that you permit us to share that data with other parties, such as coalition partners or specific legislators. We will not share your data with third-parties unless you have indicated that you permit us to do so.
Our Email List
If you sign up for our email list, we may collect data by using an embedded image to track whether you open our email and by using a URL that enables us to identify that you have taken an action, such as clicking a link in an email or signing an online petition. This allows us to build a more effective educational program and to inform you about issues you care about most.
How We Work With Third-Party Vendors
We work with a variety of vendors who help us process data, facilitate the operation of the P4PH Site and deliver messages to you on other platforms. For example, outside vendors may help us analyze traffic on our Site, process credit card transactions, or facilitate activities such as the collection and delivery of petition signatures. To the extent that any vendor has access to personally-identifiable data about you, by virtue of the fact that it participates in the operation of the P4PH Site, we require that vendor to ensure that it will keep that data confidential and use it only for the purpose of carrying out the functions we have engaged it to perform (with a limited exception for certain aggregated data, as described immediately below). That is true both as to passively-collected data and as to voluntarily-submitted data, and also as to data from any cookie or other tracking device.
In some instances, we may agree to allow a vendor to take aggregated and anonymized data about activity on the P4PH Site and use that data for other purposes, such as improvement of the vendor’s products or benchmarking for the vendor’s other clients. But we will only agree to permit a vendor to use data if the vendor ensures that it will not be recombined with other information to create any record about you as an identifiable individual.
Website performance cookies allow us to make the Site easier and more pleasant to use. For example, they may enable us to save you time when filling out a form by populating it with information you provided in previous visits.
If you are visiting our website as a registered user — for example, when you manage your subscriptions for our email lists — we place cookies in your browser that allow our website to recognize that you are logged in.
We use analytics tools that place cookies in order to give us a better understanding of how people engage with our website. That in turn allows us to gauge the current performance of Site features and to develop better content. Analytics cookies provide us with information like:
- How many individual visitors we have;
- How many visitors are new or returning;
- How often visitors come to the website;
- What content they have visited; and
- How visitors interact with particular pages or content.
Security Measures and Data Transmission
We have taken physical, electronic, and managerial measures to safeguard the information we collect. We work to ensure data accuracy and protect against unauthorized access to, and improper use of, information we collect online.
Information that can be readily linked to you personally, such as your name and address, is stored on secure servers and is not publicly accessible (unless, as discussed above, you have chosen to have us disclose information about you when you have signed a petition or submitted a blog comment). Additionally, all data transmitted to and from our website, including credit card numbers, are encrypted using industry standard measures to provide an additional level of security.
Procedure When We Update This Statement
Our privacy statement may change from time to time. We will post privacy statement changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice on our Site. We will also keep prior versions of the Online Privacy Statement available for your review in this section.
Procedure for Updating Your Personal Information or Preferences
