ADDITIONAL TERMS SPECIFIC TO USE OF THE ADVOCACY CAPACITY TOOL

The Alliance for Justice has created an Advocacy Capacity Tool (ACT), which is available via its Bolder Advocacy website at http://bolderadvocacy.org/tools-for-effective-advocacy/advocacy-capacity-tool.  The following terms and conditions apply to information collected via the use of the ACT:

  • You may provide us with your email address, which we use for the purpose you gave us the email address and no other purpose.  In other words, if you give us your email address so that we can email you the results of your participation in the ACT, we use your email address only to email you the results.  We do not add you to our email subscriber list unless you specifically ask to be added to this list.
  • We will not share or disclose organization-specific data with any third party or with any website user (other than the website user that completed the ACT on behalf of a particular organization) in any individualized manner.  Such data will, however, be shared with and disclosed to third parties in the aggregate.
  • Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may disclose to a particular grantor that has requested that its grantees complete the ACT the identity of its grantees that have completed the ACT.  Otherwise, we will not share or disclose the identity of any organizations that have completed with ACT, unless we first obtain permission from such organization.
