Politics In Your Terms
This application or site is part of the eDemocracy Network. If you are a registered user of the eDemocracy Network, this Privacy Policy applies to the use of eDemocracy Applications and the eDemocracy Network.

Thank you for registering to obtain enhanced access to the network of Web sites and services offered by the eDemocracy Network ("eDemocracy Network"). The eDemocracy Network improves your online experience by offering you access to a variety of features, offerings and content. By registering, you gain access to the eDemocracy Network of enhanced websites and services and other content and offerings from the eDemocracy Network's affiliate providers (collectively the "eDemocracy Network" or "Network").

When you register with and use the eDemocracy Network, you provide the eDemocracy Network with personally identifiable information (your "eDemocracy Network information"). This Policy explains the information practices that apply to your eDemocracy Network information.

Registering to the eDemocracy Network is optional. This Privacy Policy applies only to information the eDemocracy Network collects about you as a user of the eDemocracy Network. This policy does not apply to information about you collected by the eDemocracy Network's affiliated providers, or third party Web sites and offerings linked to, built with eDemocracy.com or otherwise accessible from the eDemocracy Network. The information collected or received by the eDemocracy Network's affiliated providers and these third parties is subject to their own privacy policies.

Your eDemocracy Network information may be supplemented with additional information from other companies.

Some of the technical information that may be collected or received includes: the type of browser you are using (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS), CPU type (e.g. Pentium), your manner of connecting to the Internet (e.g., connection speed through narrowband or broadband access); Internet protocol address; information about the version of service from the eDemocracy Network Inc. that you used prior to registering with the Network; other information about your geographic location; and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

Your eDemocracy Network information may be collected and stored in the United States.

How Your eDemocracy Network information is Used
Your eDemocracy Network information is used
- to operate and improve the Web sites, services and offerings available through the eDemocracy Network;
- to personalize the content and advertisements provided to you;
- to fulfill your requests for products, programs, and services;
- to communicate with you and respond to your inquiries;
- to conduct research about your use of the eDemocracy Network; and
- to help offer you other products, programs, or services that may be of interest.

Your eDemocracy Network information may be shared with the Network's affiliated providers. Your eDemocracy Network information may be shared with third parties. The eDemocracy Network may use your eDemocracy Network information to present offers to you on behalf of business partners and advertisers. These business partners and advertisers receive aggregate data about groups of eDemocracy Network users, but do not receive information that personally identifies you. The eDemocracy Network reserves the right to share information with 3rd parties for direct marketing purposes.

If you use eDemocracy Network communications tools to disclose information about yourself publicly (for example, in chat rooms or online message boards made available by the eDemocracy Network), other online users may obtain access to any information you provide. The contents of your online communications, as well as other information about you as an eDemocracy Network user, may be accessed and disclosed in response to legal process (for example, a court order, search warrant or subpoena); in other circumstances in which the eDemocracy Network believes the eDemocracy Network is being used in the commission of a crime; when we have a good faith belief that there is an emergency that poses a threat to the safety of you or another person; or when necessary either to protect the rights or property of the eDemocracy Network, the eDemocracy Network or its affiliated providers, or for us to render the service you have requested.

The eDemocracy Network may use agents and contractors in order to help operate the Network. If such agents and contractors have access to personally identifiable information, they are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for the eDemocracy Network.

In the event that ownership of the eDemocracy Network was to change as a result of a merger, acquisition or transfer to another company, your eDemocracy Network information may be transferred. If such a transfer results in a material change in the use of your eDemocracy Network information, the eDemocracy Network will provide notice about the choices you have to decline to permit such a transfer.

Cookies and Web Beacons
The eDemocracy Network may use cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies in combination with your eDemocracy Network information to enhance and personalize your experience on the eDemocracy Network, including to operate and improve offerings through the eDemocracy Network; to help authenticate you when you use the eDemocracy Network; to remember your preferences and registration information; to enable a shopping cart; to present and help measure and research the effectiveness of eDemocracy Network offerings, advertisements, and e-mail communications (by determining which Network e-mails you open and act upon); and to customize the content and advertisements provided to you through the eDemocracy Network.
The eDemocracy Network and its advertisers may also use ad network providers to help present advertisements on the eDemocracy Network and other Web sites. These ad network providers use cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies on your computer to help present, better target, and measure the effectiveness of their advertisements, using data gathered over time and across their networks of Web pages to determine or predict the characteristics and preferences of their audience. The eDemocracy Network may share certain non-personally identifiable information about you as a Network user (such as user age and zip code) with certain ad network providers to help them deliver more relevant advertisements through their ad networks. The use of cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies by other ad network providers is subject to their own privacy policies, not the eDemocracy Network's.

Personal Financial Information
The following notice explains the eDemocracy Network's practices with respect to the use of personal financial information, such as eDemocracy Network portfolios ("eDemocracy Network financial features"). By using eDemocracy Network financial features, you agree to receive future notices required under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act through the continuous posting of this Privacy Policy online.

To use the portfolio feature on the eDemocracy Network, for example, you specify the types of stocks and funds you wish to monitor, the names of the particular stocks of interest to you, and their purchase price ("portfolio information"). To give you updated information when you use these features, eDemocracy Network servers automatically collect and store the portfolio information that you provide. Similarly, if you use a Wallet service to facilitate transactions on third party sites, you provide the eDemocracy Network with information including your name, credit card, and shipping addresses ("wallet information").

The eDemocracy Network does not disclose portfolio or wallet information to unaffiliated third parties other than in the limited circumstances permitted by law (for example, in response to legal process), or when you ask us to disclose the information (for example, when you request that the Network share wallet information in order to facilitate a purchase on a third party web site). Nor does the eDemocracy Network share information about the specific types of stocks and funds in your portfolio with the Network's affiliated providers. This policy does not apply, however, to financial information that you provide to an affiliated provider or a third party in connection with your use of their sites or offerings.
If you click through a banner advertisement on the portfolio or wallet features, and identify yourself to the advertiser (for example, by placing an order), the advertiser may be able to tell that you use that feature. No portfolio or wallet information is shared with the advertiser unless you request it.

Only employees and contractors who need to know this information in order to provide this service to you are authorized to access portfolio or wallet information.

Our Commitment to Security
The eDemocracy Network has established safeguards to help prevent unauthorized access to or misuse of your eDemocracy Network information, but cannot guarantee that your personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in a manner inconsistent with this Privacy Policy (for example, as a result of unauthorized acts by third parties that violate applicable law or the policies of the Network and its affiliated providers). To protect your privacy and security, the eDemocracy Network uses passwords to help verify your identity before granting access or making corrections to any of your eDemocracy Network information.

Special Note for Parents
The eDemocracy Network is intended for a general audience, and children under the age of thirteen are not permitted to register with the eDemocracy Network. If any of the eDemocracy Network's affiliated providers offers a site directed toward children, or knowingly collects information from children, that affiliated provider is required to provide you information about its practices for the handling of children's online data through its privacy policy.
