2. What Information Is Collected?

“Personally identifiable information” means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, home or other physical address, an email address, phone number or other contact information, whether at work or at home. When you use our website or services Civic Shout may collect from you the following personally identifiable information: First and last name, city, state, zip code, email address, birthday and phone number. Civic Shout also automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookie information and the page you request.

Civic Shout uses the personally identifiable and other collected information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide personally identifiable information for a certain reason, we may use the personally identifiable information in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, we’ll use your ZIP code, first and last name and the message you have written, to deliver that message via fax to its intended recipient/s. We’ll use your email to keep you updated of campaign news, events, updates, offers and opportunities that relate to your interests on the Civic Shout. If you contact us by e-mail, we will use the personally identifiable information you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem.
