The We Vote For Health website (wevoteforhealth.org) (the “Website”) is presented by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) and administered by 720 Strategies.

We realize that you may be concerned about providing personal information. For this reason, we make every effort to protect the data you provide on secure servers which are guarded 24 hours a day. However, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. As a result, while we try to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit or attempt to transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

We do not sell, rent, loan, or lease any personal information collected at our site. We may share your information with the proper authorities in response to a subpoena, legal order or official request, or when we believe you have acted in violation of our Terms of Use. In addition, we may provide personal information to other companies that provide services on our behalf, such as creating your account when you sign up, handling the processing of and delivery of communications, hosting this website, and delivery of content and services provided by this website. Personal information will not be provided to any third parties except as specified in this Privacy Policy.

We may automatically gather, store and process general statistical information about our website and visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, etc. without referencing you by individual name, address, ZIP code, e-mail or telephone number. When you visit the website, we may also assign your computer a “cookie” (a small, unique identifier text file) to remember who you are, allow us to record session information, and provide access to information that requires online registration. We also may include other information in our cookie files; for example, if you arrived at the website via a link from a third-party site, we may include the URL of the linking page.

This website is not directed toward children under 13 years of age, and we do not knowingly collect information from children under 13. If you are under 13, please do not submit any personally identifiable information to us. Should we learn that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will delete that information from our database.

By using our website, you consent to the collection and use of this information in the manner we describe. We may from time to time revise this Privacy Policy. We will post any changes here, so be sure to check back periodically. By visiting the website, you are accepting the policies described in this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this website, after such changes have been posted, will constitute your acceptance of such changes.

The privacy policy of an advertiser, promotional service, or other third party appearing at our site may differ from ours. We encourage you to read that policy before responding to the offer or sharing information with that other website.
