Privacy Policy

We respect the privacy of our users. We will NOT sell or provide any of your personal information to any third party, unless we believe in good faith that the law requires it. This privacy statement is designed to help you understand what information we gather and what we do with the information.

The information we collect generally falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by visitors to our websites; and (2) information collected automatically as visitors navigate through our websites.

We require visitors to login to our site with the login codes we provide to them from either a previously sent email or mailed communication. This login requirement is to ensure the visitor is a valid member of the sponsoring organization and to determine which valid members have submitted a ballot. After a visitor logs in, the visitor is requested to cast votes for the ballots available to them. Votes are tabulated across individuals and are shared only with the sponsoring organization in aggregate form. Votes from individuals are not accessed or divulged to any person or entity outside of Survey & Ballot Systems, Inc., unless required by the sponsoring organization. You will be asked to supply your e-mail address if it is not on file so that we can e-mail a voting confirmation. Visitors are also requested to answer a question regarding the satisfaction of their online voting experience.

To help make our websites more responsive to the needs and interests of our visitors, we keep track of the pages visited by each user and the date and time of the visit. We aggregate this data with the data on the pages visited by other users to track overall visitor traffic patterns.

Our web servers automatically collect some information about you when you request pages from our web servers, including your IP address. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers connected to the Internet to identify your computer so that data (such as the webpages you request) can be sent to you. Your IP address does not identify you personally. We use your IP address to, among other things, help diagnose problems with our web servers, and to administer our websites.

We may invoke a standard feature of browser software called a "cookie" to ensure the security and privacy of those who are logged in. You can set your browser not to accept cookies, but if you do, you will be unable to vote online.

A final note: The web is an evolving medium. We may need to change our privacy policy from time to time. By continuing to use the services after we post such changes, you accept the terms of this policy, as modified.
