Welcome to ElectBrianGrim.com, the official campaign website of Brian Grim. This Online Privacy Policy (this "Policy") describes how we collect, use and protect visitors' personal and non-personal information provided to us on ElectBrianGrim.com.

Personal Information

The only personal information we collect on ElectBrianGrim.com is information that you provide. "Personal information," as used in this Policy, means information that is directly associated with a particular person, such as name, address, telephone number and email address. We may request personal information in order to provide various types of services or information to you. For example, personal information may be requested in connection with your affirmative request to receive email or other communications from us, or a contribution made to Elect Brian Grim.

Our general policy is to not make personal information provided online available to anyone other than our employees, staff and agents, except in the limited circumstances described in this Policy. We will not rent or sell your personal information to third parties. We may share your personal information with like-minded organizations to complement the activities of Elect Brian Grim.

Third parties providing services to us may have limited access to your personal information. Access to your personal information by these service providers is limited to the information reasonably necessary in order for them to perform their limited function for us. We require these service providers to protect the privacy of your personal information in a manner consistent with this Policy, and to not use or disclose your personal information for any purpose other than providing the service to us.

We may release personal information to third parties to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order. For example, federal law requires us to collect your name, street address, occupation and employer in connection with any contributions you make, and this information will be publicly disclosed in accordance with federal law. Additionally, we may disclose personal information where we believe doing so is reasonably necessary to investigate or prevent harm, fraud, abuse or illegal conduct, or to protect the safety and security of visitors to ElectBrianGrim.com.

The security of your personal information is important to us. We maintain a variety of physical, electronic and administrative safeguards to protect personal information you provide to us. For example, we have adopted commercially reasonable tools and techniques to protect against unauthorized access to our systems. We use a third-party provider who uses a secured/encrypted server for online credit card contributions.
