VoterDrive collects information about you when you use our website ("Website") to obtain information or request services (collectively, the “Services”) and through other interactions and communications you have with us.  VoterDrive's Services are only available to U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or who are the age of legal majority in their jurisdiction (if different than 18). 

This Privacy Statement (“Policy") applies to eligible persons in the U.S. who use our Services (“Users”).  By using our Website and providing information to us, you agree to the terms of use described in this Policy and to our Terms of Use.  You also understand that our Services provide a platform that allows Users to obtain promotional codes (where legally permitted) that may be used in Uber's ridesharing platform to obtain a credit against the costs of transportation to and/or from their local polling place.  Use of services obtained through Uber's platform will be subject to Uber's Terms of Use and Uber's Privacy Policy.

Our Website may also contains links to other websites. We have no control over the content, policies, or actions of these sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

Cookies and Web Beacons
Cookies are small text files that web servers typically send to a user’s computer when the user visits a website. Cookies are stored as text files on the user’s hard drive, and can be accessed by web servers when the user returns to a website or goes to another website.

Web beacons are tags or signs embedded in a website that provide information to cookies. These technologies are used by organizations to collect and send information about a user’s website visit – for example, number of visits, average time spent, pages viewed, navigation history through the website, and other statistics.

This information helps organizations improve a user’s online experience in many ways: for example, by allowing organizations to monitor website performance, make the website easier to use, measure the effectiveness of promotional placements, and tailor the website to better match a user’s interests and preferences. Cookies cannot be used to access any other data on a user’s hard drive, or to personally identify any individual user. A user who prefers not to accept cookies can set his or her Internet browser to provide notice upon receipt of a cookie or to prevent cookies from being placed on his or her hard drive.

The Security and Protection of Your Information

The security of your PII is important to us. We have implemented reasonable security measures to protect the PII in our care, both during transmission and once we receive it. This includes, but is not limited to the use of firewalls and encryption.

No security measures, however thorough, are perfect, and no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100 percent secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security, or warrant the security of the information we possess. If you have any questions about our security practices, please send an email to us at privacy@voterdrive.us.

Your Choices 

PII and Access Rights.  VoterDrive will comply with individual requests regarding access, correction, and/or deletion of the PII provided to us on the Website in accordance with applicable law.  Please send your request to us at privacy@voterdrive.us, and we will process your request within a reasonable period of time after receipt.

Promotional Communications.  You may opt out of receiving promotional messages from us by following the instructions in those messages. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional communications, such as those about Services you have requested or our ongoing business relations. 

Cookies and Advertising.   

Third Party Advertising Cookie Opt Out.  In addition to our internal cookie use described above, we also allow third party vendors to place cookies on your computer for purposes of targeted digital advertising. This Privacy Policy does not cover the collection methods or use of the information collected by these vendors. These vendors have their own privacy policies and may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA"). To remove yourself from some or all NAI or DAA member advertising programs, please visit the NAI Opt-Out Page or the DAA Opt-Out Page and follow the relevant instructions. Please note that when you opt-out, an opt-out cookie will be placed on your computer.  The opt-out cookie informs ad networks to stop collecting data regarding your online behavior.  This means, though, that if you delete, block, or otherwise restrict cookies, or if you use a different computer or Internet browser, you may need to renew your opt-out choice.  For more information about interest-based ads, or to opt out of having your web-browsing information used for behavioral advertising purposes, please visit www.aboutads.info/choices.

Other Choices Regarding Cookies.  In addition to the opt-outs indicated above, you can also set your browser to reject cookies altogether, to reject VoterDrive cookies in particular, or to delete existing cookies from your computer. 

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies.  To do so, please follow the instructions provided by your browser which are usually located within the "Help" or “Preferences” menu.  For further information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage and delete them, you can visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

You have the right to choose whether or not to accept cookies. However, they are an important part of how our Services work, so you should be aware that if you choose to refuse or remove cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of the Services.
