1. 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 to keep email subscribers up-to-date on the latest marijuana policy news and information we think they’d like to hear about.
2. TYPE OF DATA COLLECTED
MPP may collect the following information for users upon submitting forms on mpp.org:
- Phone number
- Browser information
- Other information provided by users
3. 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 your full name, postal address, phone number, and the email address at which you receive messages from MPP.
MPP is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment for your personal information.
4. 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 webpages 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, Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Safari will work.) This protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it is transmitted over the internet.
5. ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
If you would like your personal information updated, modified, or removed, you can contact [email protected] with your request. If possible, please include your full name, postal address, phone number, and the email address at which you receive messages from MPP.
Salsa is a third-party data processor which handles data, including personally identifiable information. You can update subscriptions and your profile information with their Profile Manager.
6. OUR ORGANIZATIONAL COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY
MPP does not knowingly solicit personal information from children or send them requests for personal information.
MPP’s website 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.

MPP collects personally identifiable information, like names, postal addresses, email addresses, etc., when voluntarily submitted by our visitors. The information you provide is used to fulfill your specific request. Personal information submitted when donating to MPP, MPP Foundation, the MPP PAC, or subscribing to MPP email alerts will not be shared with other groups, but MPP may occasionally allow like-minded organizations to send mailings to you, whereby MPP doesn’t actually share your contact info with these like-minded organizations.

Portions of the mpp.org site (donation processing, the MPP store, and action center) are operated by a third-party grassroots campaign service provider, which is currently Salsa. Salsa may place cookies on your computer in order to store information, such as items placed in your shopping cart in the MPP store or storing your account login when using the action center. Salsa logs standard technical information, such as the numerical internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our site; and the internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site.
Salsa also stores and organizes the personal information collected through this site on our behalf.
