Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting your privacy. To make your experience at our Website more convenient, we gather information from you. We maintain the privacy of your information using security technologies and adhere to policies that prevent unauthorized use of your personal information.

This privacy policy was revised May 17, 2012.

What personal information do we collect, and how is it used?

We collect information on portions of our website visitors access or visit. We also collect information volunteered by visitors, such contact and survey information and/or Web site registrations. We keep confidential all personal information entered during registration. When we do collect personally identifiable information, it is always voluntarily submitted by you (e.g., when you fill out registration pages or send us feedback). The information collected is used to send our users email reminders and other information we think will be of interest. If, for any reason, you would like to be removed from our email list, you can opt-out of future mailings by simply stating this desire in a reply to any email we send you. We may also monitor and track information such as customer usage patterns of our website. We compile this information into a statistical aggregate which we use, together with your personal information, for internal business and administrative purposes including improving our website, our operations and our client service.

Data Security

Any information collected about our webviewers is stored in offsite data centers that implement several layers of state of the art security, such as redundant firewalls, SSL ecryption, certificate services, and sequestration from public access.

Exchange of Drug Policy Action Member Addresses

Names and postal addresses of current and former members of Drug Policy Action may be rented or exchanged with other organizations or publications under the procedures outlined below. Email addresses, however, will NEVER be shared, traded or otherwise divulged, except with the Drug Policy Alliance, our affiliate organization.

Drug Policy Action will always honor a member’s request to be withheld from mailing lists made available for exchange or rental. If you would like to request to be withheld from our mailing list rental or exchange please contact the membership department at membership [at] drugpolicy [dot] org or call (212) 613-8046; please be specific in letting us know which address you would like withheld.  To manage your e-mail subscriptions, you can click “unsubscribe” at the bottom of any list email you receive from Drug Policy Action.

We keep confidential any personal information entered during registration, though we may share aggregate information about website usage and traffic patterns, stripped of any personally identifiable information, to third parties to comply with various reporting obligations and for business or marketing purposes. We may also share limited personally identifiable information with third parties on a confidential basis to enable a third party to perform certain tasks, such as maintain an email list or send email alerts and/or newsletters, on our behalf.
