HCDEC Wiki Privacy Policy

 

This is the Privacy Policy for the Hillsborough County Democratic Executive Committee, (also known as the Hillsborough County Democratic Party), referred to in this document as HCDEC, for the website https://training.hcfldems.org, commonly referred to as a “Wiki”.  If you choose to use the site, you will be asked to provide certain personal information, including your name and email address. We will store your personal information, and may share it with third parties who, in the opinion of HCDEC, will further the goals and objectives of HCDEC.  Such third parties include, but are not limited to, those necessary to provide the services offered, to monitor usage, and to improve the service.

 

For example, we may store your personal information along with your files and data on a third-party server; or we may use a third-party analytics tool to learn how you are using training.hcfldems.org, and how we can improve that experience. We also use your personal information to send you notifications about the service and to respond to support requests.

 

We may be required to disclose your personal information in order to:

 

  • comply with the law or legal process;
  • protect or defend our rights or property, or the rights or property of others;
  • enforce these terms; or
  • respond to claims that the content of any material on our system violates the rights of others

 

If we must disclose your personal information in order to comply with the law or legal process, we will inform you (at the email address you provide) on a best effort basis, provided that it is lawful for us to do so.

 

We will also aggregate user information and perform statistical analyses of the collective behavior of our members and visitors, to measure overall demographics, and to analyze how to improve our service. We may share this information with third parties, but such aggregate information does not contain personal information other than IP addresses. In addition, we may compile and disclose aggregate information about our users for promotional or other purposes.

 

We may communicate with you via email, to the email address you provide to us. Some communications, such as emails informing you of new projects, may be unsubscribed to via the unsubscribe link in the email.
