Protecting your privacy is important to the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP). We are committed to keeping your personal information confidential.
Why we collect personal information
MPP collects and uses personal information to provide individuals with news and information regarding MPP. In addition, we use personal information (e.g. email address, city, and state) to keep email subscribers up-to-date on the latest marijuana policy news and information we think they'd like to hear about.
When we disclose contact information
MPP occasionally allows other organizations to send mail to individuals on its lists. In these cases, lists containing only names and addresses (no contribution data or other personal information) are delivered to a third-party mailing house for one-time use for that organization's mailing. To request that we never allow your contact information to be used even in this secure manner, please contact [email protected]. If possible, please include full name, postal address, phone number, and the email address at which you receive messages from MPP.
If you make threats of violence against anyone, we may contact authorities.
MPP is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment for your personal information.
How we protect your personal information
MPP safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet.
MPP uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all Web pages where donations are submitted. To make donations to MPP or organizations supported by MPP, you must use an SSL-enabled browser. (Any current version of Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari will work.) This protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it is transmitted over the Internet.
Access to your personal information
If you would like your personal information updated or modified, you can contact [email protected] with your request. If possible, please include full name, postal address, phone number, and the email address at which you receive messages from MPP.
Our organizational commitment to privacy
MPP does not knowingly solicit personal information from children or send them requests for personal information.
MPP's Web site contains limited links to other sites. MPP does not share your personal information with those sites, nor is MPP responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those organizations.
If we are going to use your personal information differently from what is stated here, we will try to contact you via email using the most recent information we have. If you have not given us permission to communicate with you, you will not be contacted, nor will we use your personal information in a new manner.
