Petitions and Surveys
For petitions and surveys signed or completed by Subscriber, NC Voices may treat Subscriber’s name, city, state, and comments as public information-for example, NC Voices may provide compilations of petitions, with Subscriber’s comments, to public officials, but in no such case may NC Voices disclose Subscriber’s street address, email address or phone number, without Subscriber’s prior consent. NC Voices may also make Subscriber’s comments, along with Subscriber’s first name, city, state, and country, available to the press and public online.
NC Voices will enable Subscriber to send individual e-mails through the Site in Subscriber’s name, and in connection with such emails, NC Voices may disclose Subscriber’s e-mail address as the return address to public officials. If Subscriber writes letters or emails to newspapers using the Site, NC Voices may disclose Subscriber’s email address and full name and contact information as part of the submission.
From time to time, NC Voices may periodically analyze web logs in order to understand traffic patterns and determine whether there are problems with the Site. NC Voices may also use embedded images in emails to track open rates for mailings, so that NC Voices can tell which mailings appeal most to NC Voices Subscribers. In no case, however, shall NC Voices disclose data about NC Voices Subscribers’ behavior to any organization other than NC Voices.
NC Voices may use URLs in emails that contain an id enabling NC Voices to correctly identify the person who takes an action using a web page. NC Voices may use these URLs to simplify the process of signing petitions and filling out surveys. NC Voices may occasionally present a shortened URL that references a longer URL which contains an id in order to prevent links from becoming broken when copied, and to ensure compatibility with email programs which do not handle long URLs. If NC Voices displays a shortened URL in an email, Subscriber may see the full URL in the browser’s address bar when Subscriber accesses the page.
