Privacy Policy


INTRODUCTION

Citizenship 1-2-3 strongly believes in the importance of your privacy. Citizenship 1-2-3 is a project of the Miami New Americans Campaign partners and other Citizenship 1-2-3 partners that consists of the National Immigration Forum, Citizenshipworks, Catholic Legal Services Archdiocese of Miami, International Rescue Committee, Florida Immigrant Coalition, Florida International University School of Law, Read to Succeed, iAmerica and Voto Latino. Additional partners may be added to the Citizenship 1-2-3 project at any point in the future. This Privacy Policy describes how Citizenship 1-2-3 treats the personal information we collect through the Citizenship 1-2-3 website (the “Website”) and what we do with that information. By using or accessing the Website, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Statement applies only to information collected online through the Website and does not describe the ways in which we may collect or use information obtained offline or through any means other than our Website.

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USAGE

The National Immigration Forum maintains the Website and collects two types of information: optional and/or voluntary information that users provide; and information that is automatically recorded in a standard, web server log file each time a page request is made.

Optional and/or voluntary information that you provide (such as your name, ZIP code, email, phone number) is collected when you take action on the website. This information belongs to the National Immigration Forum and may be used by Citizenship 1-2-3 partners, and is not used for any purposes other than direct communication and aggregate statistics.

We may collect demographic data through automatic logging files in order to enhance the usefulness of our site.

Citizenship 1-2-3 partners may send a variety of updates, alerts, releases, and other communications to persons who sign up on our web site, or who contact us directly. Out of respect for the privacy of our users, Citizenship 1-2-3 partners always present the option to unsubscribe from communications.

Citizenship 1-2-3 does not actively market to children, and we never knowingly ask a child under 13 to divulge personal information.

HOW, WHEN, AND WHY WE COLLECT INFORMATION

Activity That Doesn’t Require Registration. You can view content on the Website without registering or providing any personal information. When you enter the Website, we collect information such as your browser and operating system type and IP address to optimize your experience on the Website and to track aggregate Website usage. In addition, we may use a “session” cookie to identify you while you are on the Website, if cookies are enabled on your computer.

Mailing list. You may provide us with your email address, and/or cell phone number if you wish to join our email, text message, or call list. By providing this information, you are consenting to our contacting you using these tools, and understand that standard rates may apply. This information may be exchanged between members of this coalition and their agents and/or affiliates to contact you regarding their organizations’ or Citizenship 1-2-3 matters.

Activity Requiring Registration. Certain activities on the Website may require you to register. To become a registered user, we ask you to provide your name, email address, mobile phone, ZIP code and other relevant information. You may also be asked to provide certain additional information to participate in other activities that we may undertake through the Website. For example, if you sign up to receive information by email, we will ask for your email address.

Usage Information. We may record information about your usage of the Website, such as when you use the site, the areas of the site you click on and/or participate in, and the tags you search for. A persistent cookie may be used to track this information. We may use pixel tags, web beacons, and/or trackable links in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened and/or clicked on by recipients.

COOKIES

Certain sections of the Website may use “cookies” to store user information. A cookie is a small string of text that a web site can send to your browser. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your email address. Currently, web sites use cookies to enhance the user’s visit; in general, cookies can securely store a user’s ID and password, personalize home pages, identify which parts of a site have been visited, or keep track of selections in a “shopping cart.” Cookies help us understand which parts of our web sites are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how long they spend there. We use cookies to study traffic patterns on our site so we can make the site even better. Cookies were originally designed to help a web site distinguish a user’s browser as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. If you are just browsing the Website, a cookie identifies only your browser.

LINKING

We offer links to other websites. Please note: When you click on links to other websites, we encourage you to read their privacy policies. Their standards may differ from ours.

PROBLEM RESOLUTION

If problems arise, users may contact the National Immigration Forum at 202-347-0040. We are committed to resolving disputes promptly.

DATA STORAGE AND SECURITY

The data we gather from users is stored on the servers of Salsa, Salesforce, and Ez Texting. We urge you to read their privacy policies as well. Industry-standard methods are used to protect the confidentiality and integrity of your personal information. Please note, however, that there is no such thing as “perfect security” anywhere on the internet. Access to personal data is restricted within the organization and within the company hosting our databases, and all employees are aware that personal data is private.

If you have any further questions about privacy or security, please contact us at 202-347-0040.

YOUR CHOICE TO OPT-OUT

All Citizenship 1-2-3 partners provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications. If you do not wish to receive emails, please either click ‘unsubscribe’ at the bottom of the communication, or send an email to the sender of the communication. If you do not wish to receive text messages, please text ‘STOP 123’ to 313131. As the website developers, the National Immigration Forum reserves its right to modify this privacy policy at any time.

This agreement is effective February 4, 2016.
