To provide you with the most relevant campaigns, we need to know a little about you. For example, we need your name to ensure you are a real person. If you choose to provide it, we request your company or university to have more data to persuade those entities to take action. And we request information like your location to demonstrate that these issues cross state lines. Some information you provide directly to us by signing the pledge, some we collect automatically through our Website, and some may be collected from third parties. Some of the information we collect will be personally identifiable information you provide which we discuss in further detail below.
