Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Welcome, the Coalition for a Prosperous America (“CPA”) is an independent, non-profit
organization that has created this statement so that you understand our information gathering and
dissemination practices both on and off our website properties (“Website”).


General


CPA is the sole owner of the personal information collected as described. CPA will not sell,
share, or rent this personal information to others except as described herein. Any third-parties
with whom personal information is shared for business purposes (i.e., Website hosting company,
database administration firm, mail houses, etc.) are prohibited from releasing the Personal Data
to anyone else or from using it for purposes other than those outlined herein.


CPA’s Advocacy Efforts


CPA may use the information it collects to determine your Congressional District, the identity of
your elected officials, or similar information relevant to our advocacy objectives. CPA may share
aggregated demographic information about our membership with legislators, regulators, the
media, and the public.


What Personal Information We Collect


The Website does not collect any personal information about you unless you specifically and
knowingly provide such information. We retain varying amounts of personal information for as
long as necessary for our legitimate interests in pursuing the purposes outlined in this Privacy
Policy.


When We Collect It


We collect information when you fill out an online form to provide us with your email address.
We may collect information from various public sources and social networking platforms. The
data we receive from these third-party platforms is dependent upon that third party’s policies and
your privacy settings on that third-party site.


Submitting personal information is not required to use CPA website properties except to access
password-protected portions of the site.


What We Do With It

We use your information for the purposes of connecting you with CPA to provide you with
information about issues and public policies that may interest you.


On the website, we use your email address only to send you a notice to which you have chosen to
receive. CPA does not subject data subjects to decisions that have legal effects on them due
solely to automated processing of personal data.


For United States residents, we will send you information that may be of interest to you, but you
can opt-out of any electronic mailings. We may undertake marketing, but only in compliance
with applicable law.


Disclosure and Transfer of Personal Information


We may disclose personal information to outside companies that help us bring you the services
we offer. For example, we may work with an outside company to: (a) manage our databases; (b)
assist us in distributing emails; (c) assist us with direct marketing and data collection; (d) provide
us storage and analysis; (d) provide fraud prevention; and (e) provide other services designed to
assist us in maximizing our business potential. We require these outside companies to agree to
keep confidential all information we share with them and to use the information only to perform
their obligations in our agreements with them.


We do not disclose any personal information collected from unrelated third parties. In addition,
your information may be used to send you information about CPA or any of its activities. You
can choose to “opt out” of any electronic mailings, although if you are a member, then we may
need to contact you regarding membership issues.


We may disclose information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, such as to respond
to a subpoena or similar legal process, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our
website, to limit our legal liability, and to protect our rights or to protect the rights, property, or
safety of visitors of this website or the public, and to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement
or regulatory authorities.


We may transfer or share a copy of personal information about you in the event that CPA or one
of its properties, affiliates, or subsidiaries goes through a business transition, such as a merger,
being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets. You will be notified via
email or prominent notice on our website prior to a change of ownership or control of your
personal information, if your personal information will be used contrary to this policy.


Nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to interfere with the ability of CPA to transfer all or
part of its business and/or assets to an affiliate or independent third party at any time, for any
purpose, without any limitation. CPA specifically reserves the right to transfer or share a copy of
any information collected from its websites to the buyer of that portion of its business relating to
that information.

Such transfers may involve the transfer of your information between jurisdictions and outside of
the jurisdiction in which you submitted your information, including to jurisdictions that the
European Union may not deem to provide “adequate” data protection. Please do not provide us
any information that you do not wish to be transferred between these entities.
