This Privacy Policy applies when you use any FRAC website, mobile application, information technology, electronic, or any other online service that links or refers to it (collectively, the “Services”). This policy describes what types of information we gather about you, how we use it, under what circumstances we disclose it to third parties, and how you can update it. We reserve the right to change this Policy. We will post the date of the most recent updates to this policy at the top of the page. You should also read, understand, and agree to FRAC's Terms of Service, located at https://www.fracaction.org/terms-of-service.

2. Information Collection

 

We may collect personal information about our users through various ways and means, including but not limited to collecting: (1) information that you provide to us; (2) information that we collect through your use of the Services; and (3) information that we collect from publicly available sources or third parties.

 

We gather certain broad information about website use including: (1) the number of unique visitors; (2) the frequency with which they visit; and (3) the programs and Services preferred. We look at the data in summary form, rather than on an individual basis. We gather this information so we can learn how many people visit FRAC sites and services, which pages are the most- and least-frequently viewed, and which websites are referring visitors to our sites and Services. We use this information to help us in restructuring sites to meet our members’, supporters’, and visitors’ needs. FRAC sites and services do not respond to “Do Not Track” signals.

 

When you register or otherwise interact with the Services, you may be invited to provide personal information. At times, we may ask for information such as your name, e-mail address, year of birth, gender, residence and/or mailing address, job title and industry, and other information. We may collect payment information, such as your credit card number and expiration date, where appropriate to process a financial transaction (e.g. a donation) that you have requested. We also collect information that you provide us when you comment on articles, participate in message boards, and submit images, photos, videos, or other content to the Services.

 

We also compile lists for communications and marketing purposes. You may ask us to remove you from the lists by contacting us. We do not provide visitor information to telemarketers, mailing list brokers, or other companies that are not offering FRAC-endorsed services or benefits.

 

Under no circumstances will FRAC sell your information to third parties or any commercial entities.

 

3. Cookies and Tracking Codes

 

FRAC Services may make use of cookies, web beacons, pixels, and other kinds of tracking codes to personalize and customize your interaction with FRAC and to provide you with the best possible online experience. A cookie is a small encrypted text file that is placed in your device’s data storage.

 

FRAC may use cookies in conjunction with third parties to provide measurement on marketing campaigns and send targeted advertisements to internet users. Using cookies allows personally identifiable information to remain undisclosed. You can set your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.

4. IP Addresses

 

We may (and reserve the right to) collect and analyze traffic on our Services by keeping track of the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of our visitors.

 

5. Personal Information

 

You may be asked to provide different types of personal information, including your name, date of birth, email address, mailing address or telephone number. Specific Services may require additional information such as your billing address, credit card number, and expiration date. For example, we may ask for information to process a contribution, or submit or post a question or message.

 

6. Control of Personal Information

 

We may also use your information to send you notices in the mail or by email about special member or supporter benefits, discounts and offers. If you do not wish to receive mailings, you can let us know by contacting us.

 

7. Data Security

 

We and our vendors have in place various procedures to protect the information we collect online. However, as effective as these measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database or any database maintained on our behalf or in facilitation of Services, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. FRAC is not responsible for the privacy practices of websites linked to our sites or other third parties. When leaving an FRAC site using such a link or by clicking on an advertisement, you should review the applicable privacy policy of the other party or website.

 

8. Children’s Privacy

 

We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13 without parental consent, unless permitted by law. If we learn that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information, we will delete it in accordance with applicable law.

 

9. Changes to Our Privacy Policy.

 

We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of changes by posting changes here, or by other appropriate means. Any changes to the Privacy Policy will become effective when the updated policy is posted on the Services. Your use of the Services or your provision of personal information to use the Services following such changes indicates your acceptance of the revised Privacy Policy
