Applicability of the GDPR
As of May 25, 2018, the European General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR) is applicable to all entities that process European consumers’ personal data. You can read more about the GDPR here https://epic.org/international/gdpr/. The Public Voice is a strong supporter of the GDPR and believes that strong privacy standards should apply to everyone who uses online platforms and services no matter where they live. The GDPR helps to ensure that companies operate in an accountable and transparent manner, subject to the rule of law and the democratic process.
The Public Voice is committed to complying with all GDPR obligations for all personal data that it controls or processes. If you would like to exercise your data protection rights under the GDPR, you can contact us at email@example.com. Contact information for European data protection authorities can be found here.
Personal Data Gathered for Events, Petitions, and Campaigns
We request, but do not require, certain personal data for events, petitions, and campaigns. We will retain the data for as long as the petition or campaign continues, or until soon after the event concludes. We will treat name information you provide as public information. We will treat email addresses as private information and will not make public. We may use the email address to contact for purposes related to the event, petition, or campaign. In the event that any information provided will be made public (such as when you sign a petition), we will notify you on the form prior to submission.
You have the right to confirm whether or not your personal data we are processing your personal data. In the event you wish to view, receive a copy of, update, or delete personal data in The Public Voice’s possession at any time for any reason, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make those changes.
