Our registration forms may require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, street address, interests, and similar information. For those who take action on our alerts, we also store the content of the messages forwarded and the names of the legislators to whom those messages are sent. All of this information is kept strictly confidential, and only PHAN staff have access to it. Except in cases where we temporarily transfer contact information to a third-party for the strict purpose of conveying PHAN communications, we do not share this information with any other organization or company. For those who sign a PHAN petition or participate in similar online actions, we expect to disclose the name, city, and zip code of petition signers. We do not disclose other personal information, such as email addresses, unless explicitly stated. We also do not store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or Social Security numbers. We do not release any personally identifiable information that is collected to any unrelated third party. PHAN will not share, sell, or disclose your information to third parties in any form, for any purpose, at any time, without your consent, except when the request is initiated by law enforcement authorities and when PHAN is ordered to do so by a court, or when we believe it is necessary to assert or protect our legal or intellectual property rights.
