Why do we collect personal information such as your name, address, email address, and phone number?
Your address determines the legislator(s) your letter will be sent to. Your name tells the recipient of your letter who sent it. Your email address and phone number guard against duplicate signatures.
We collect information provided by you, the user, for the purpose of matching you to your elected officials and making such information available to any person with whom you choose to communicate.
Online Letters: If you sign an online letter, you understand that such letter is public information and that we may make the letter, and your name, city, state, and any comments provided in connection therewith publicly available. In addition, we may provide such letters or compilations thereof, including your comments, name, city, and state to national, state or local leaders, or to the press.
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
UnfairCarInsurance.com collects information at different points on our website. The main point at which we collect information is when users sign a letter.
Signing a Letter: When you sign a letter on our site, you will be asked for your name, city, state, zip code, and email address. You may also be asked for additional demographic information. Some of this information may be optional, but we encourage you to provide it as it will allow us to better customize your experience. In addition, we store your IP address in our database. The information you provide and your IP address are stored on our servers.
The following are exceptions to this rule:
1) when we submit a letter to its intended recipient: we may submit email addresses, names, and other information to the letter's intended recipient. We may choose to submit email addresses and names (as well as other information) as such information is likely to enhance the credibility of a letter; and
2) We may disclose user or signer information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary for legal reasons. We may do so in response to a specific legal query, or even without such a query if we have reason to believe that sharing such information may be: in the interests of public or private safety; necessary to prevent or remedy an illegal or potentially illegal act (in any jurisdiction of the world); necessary to prevent harm to us, our users, or any other member of the public anywhere in the world; or any other reason which we believe to be valid or necessary. In the event we share information in response to a specific legal query or request (including but not limited to a court order, police request, or subpoena), we may choose solely at our own discretion to waive the requirement of service of summons and respond to a verbal, emailed or other request. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES CAN WE BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR SHARING INFORMATION IF WE HAVE SHARED THE INFORMATION WITH THE BELIEF (WHETHER THAT BELIEF LATER PROVES FOUNDED OR UNFOUNDED) THAT IT WAS NECESSARY FOR LEGAL OR OTHER REASONS.
