Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) explains how Unionize.me collects, uses and discloses information that you may provide while visiting our website, mobile sites, mobile applications and other online services (the “Sites”) using a personal computer, mobile device, or any other means, and to demonstrate our firm commitment to Internet privacy. Unionize.me operates in the United States and the information we collect is governed by U.S. law.

Unionize.me may modify this Policy from time to time so we encourage you to check this page when revisiting the Sites to make sure that you are informed of how your personal information will be used. We will post notice of any changes by revising the date last updated on the Policy. By using or accessing the Sites, you accept the Policy and its terms and conditions in effect at that time.

What is Personal Information?

"Personal Information" is information about a particular individual that specifically identifies that individual, or information about that individual, such as name, address, email address, telephone number, or credit or debit card information. Personal Information does not include “aggregate information,” which is data we may collect automatically about the use of the Sites. The Policy does not restrict Unionize.me’s collection and use of aggregate information.

Collection of Personal Information

We collect Personal Information that you provide to us when you sign up, send us an email, sign up to receive email or text messages, sign up to volunteer, fill out a form, make a donation, communicate with us through third-party social feeds, request information, participate in active forums or take any other action on the Sites. We may also obtain information from outside sources and combine it with the information we collect through the Sites. We will never knowingly collect, use or disclose Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13, consistent with the United States Federal Children’s Online Privacy Act of 1998 (COPPA).

We may automatically collect information when you visit the Sites such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address, the browser and operating system you use, the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, the address of the website from which you linked to the Sites, device identifiers and mobile and network information, and your actions on the Sites. This information will be treated as Personal Information if we combine or link it to any of the identifying information above. Otherwise, this information constitutes aggregate information.

We may also receive and store certain types of information when you visit the Sites through the use of cookies, javascript local storage, or similar means, to collect the information described above. Cookies and javascript local storage allow small files to be stored locally on your computer that help store user preferences. We may use cookies to measure aggregate web statistics, including the number of monthly visitors, number of repeat visitors, most popular webpages and other information. We will also use cookies or javascript local storage to facilitate your online visit by maintaining data that you provide so that you will not need to resubmit certain information. Cookies do not contain any Personal Information and we will never track your Internet usage outside of the Sites. In many web browsers, you can choose to delete, disable, turn off, or reject most cookies through the "Internet Options" sub-option of the "Tools" menu of your web browser or otherwise as directed by your web browser’s support feature. Please consult the “Help” section of your web browser for more information. Our web servers may also collect "log data." Log data provides aggregate information about the number of visits to different pages on the Sites. We use server log data for troubleshooting purposes, fraud detection, and to track which pages people visit in order to improve the Sites.

How We Use Your Personal Information

We may use your Personal Information for various purposes including to:

Connect you to Unionize.me programs, events and activities, and obtain and confirm RSVP's to events and programs;

Improve, maintain, and operate the Sites, send you receipts, confirmations, updates, notices, and messages regarding support and administration;

Provide information we think will interest you, such as information about relevant issues, resources, events, campaigns, events, promotions, products and services;

For any other purpose for which the information was collected; and if required by law.

How We Share Your Personal Information

To make a "showing of interest" to the U.S. National Labor Relations Board ("NLRB") – via electronic union cards and/or other means – that workers seek a union election;

To respond to legitimate information requests from the NLRB;

When we have a good-faith belief that release is appropriate to comply with the law (for example, a lawful subpoena);

To protect the rights, property or safety of our supporters, employees, volunteers or others;

With vendors, service providers, consultants, employees, contractors, or volunteers who need to know such information to carry out their duties;

To comply with applicable laws, statutes, or regulations and to enforce this Policy;

and with your consent.

How We Protect the Information You Provide

Unionize.me uses reasonable, industrial-grade security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, theft, unauthorized access, destruction or alteration of the information under our control. Although we make good faith efforts to store information collected by the Sites in a secure operating environment, no web application can guarantee complete security.

California Residents

Some browsers have incorporated "Do Not Track" features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to a website or online service that a user visits, indicating that the user does not wish to be tracked. California law requires that an operator of a website or other online service disclose how the operator responds to a Do Not Track signal and whether third parties may collect personal information about an individual’s online activities from the operator’s website or online service. Unionize.me is committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected through the Sites, however please be aware that the Internet industry is currently still working on Do Not Track standards, implementations and solutions, and therefore the Sites may or may not respond to those signals. California law also provides California residents with the right to receive disclosures about any sharing of their Personal Information to a business in connection with a business relationship that is primarily for personal, family, or household purposes, and if that business has within the immediately preceding calendar year disclosed such an individual’s Personal Information to a third-party and knows or should have known that such third-party used the information for its own direct marketing purposes, then that business is obligated to disclose in writing to such individual upon request, what Personal Information was shared and with whom it was shared. Any request for a disclosure required under this California law should be sent to us via email at info@unionize.me.
