Privacy Policy

Kienan is a candidate running for city council to represent the North North End of Burlington. Wards 7 & 4.

Generally

On this site, I ask you to donate to my campaign through DonorBox, or join by providing your name and e-mail address. This will require you, if you choose do so, to provide some information about yourself. Visiting this site will also result in the automatic generation of certain information. This policy will tell you how that information is used, including:

 

  1. What information gets collected from you.
  2. How and with whom that information may be shared.
  3. What options you have with respect to how your information is used.

 

By visiting this site—or my Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram—you agree to and become subject to the terms of this policy.

If you choose to join or donate to my campaign, you’ll be asked to submit some personally-identifying information—information that can be used to identify you as an individual. Personally-identifying information includes:

 

  1. your name;
  2. your social networking user name
  3. your postal or other address;
  4. your e-mail address;
  5. your telephone number; and
  6. your credit card number, along with the card type, expiration date, and ccv;

 

Personally-identifying information does not include aggregate information—described below—which is data collected about the use of this site or about a group or category of services or users, from which individual identities or other personalized information has been removed. Any information that does not, by itself, identify an individual person is considered non-personal information. When non-personal information is combined with other information that can identify an individual, it’s treated as personally-identifying information.

 

Your privacy matters to me. If you trust me with your personally-identifying information, I will only use it for the reasons for which it is given.

 

Information That We Collect and Use

 

When you join this campaign

When you sign up to join the campaign, we’ll use the information stored to send you messages, ask for your help, and keep you up to date on the campaign. We’ll also use that information to respond to comments and questions, as well as to comply with requests concerning your information. We may also ask you to share demographic information. You may regard some of that information as sensitive or confidential, and the we’ll treat it as such unless you expressly say otherwise. These requests could come in the form of questionnaires or surveys sent to the e-mail that you use to join this campaign. If any information you send is tied to personally-identifiable information, it will be treated as personal information.

 

If at any point you wish to unsubscribe to this campaign’s e-mails, either let us know, or click the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any e-mail that we’ve sent.

 

When you make a donation

When you make a donation through DonorBox, you’re sending that information to a third party. DonorBox, in turn, may allow other third parties to automatically collect information about your visit, and use that information for advertising, marketing, or analytic purposes. These parties all have their own privacy policies, and this campaign is not responsible for the information entrusted to DonorBox. You should review its privacy policy and terms of service. https://donorbox.org/privacy.

 

When is your personally-identifying information shared?

Generally speaking, we won’t share this information with anyone. Some limited examples of when we may share your personal information include:

 

  • If it’s necessary to comply with state or Federal campaign finance laws.
  • If you expressly consent, or direct us to do so.
  • When your activities related to this campaign impliedly give your consent for us to do so. This happens, for instance, when you share the fact that you’ve joined or donated to this campaign on another platform or social media account. Following this campaign on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram similarly makes that information publicly available.
  • When, in good faith, we believe that disclosure is necessary to comply with other state or Federal law—for example, in connection with a regulatory action or order of the court;
  • To protect the rights, safety, and property of this campaign, its employees, or its volunteers;
  • If you’ve made an access request, we’ll send your information back to you, once your identity has been verified;
  • To enforce the terms of this policy.

 

Children

This campaign complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. 15 U.S.C. § 6501, et seq. We do not knowingly allow children under the age of 13 to post or otherwise distribute personally-identifying information through the site or any related social media account. The campaign does not solicit any information from children under 13, and we are sure to block our knowing acceptance of that it whenever age-related information is requested.

 

If we find out that we’ve inadvertently received personally-identifying information from anyone under 13, we will delete that information from our records.

 

Information Collected Automatically When You Use This Site

Some information is stored automatically when you visit this site—or its related social media profiles—by using cookies, clear gifs, web beacons, or similar technologies. These are small files—sometimes generated when you visit a website, sometimes placed on websites to signal access to a server—that keep track of the information of those who visit. This information shows, for instance, whether you’ve visited before, and what led you here. These technologies also collect some aggregate and anonymous information. This includes the type of browser you’re using, the site from which your visit may have originated, the pages that you visit here, your IP address, the device or computer that you use, your device’s or computer’s operating system, or other information about your device or computer.

 

Certain applications on this site use cookies or otherwise automatically retain data—for instance, the fields used to join this campaign may remember your name and e-mail if you or someone on your computer filled them out before. But the campaign itself doesn’t use your cookies, and doesn’t engage with any third-party analytics services. This policy does not restrict the sharing of aggregated or anonymized information—such as that used by search engines to enable or measure access to this site, or by social media platforms—which may be shared with third parties without your consent.

 

We can’t use cookies—small files placed on your hard drive at the request of a site—to retrieve any personal information about you from your computer that you haven’t already knowingly given. Even so, you can use your browser’s “help” menu if you want to learn how to disable—or otherwise block, erase, or be warned of—cookies. Disabling cookies generally will not affect your access to this site. Some video content on this site, however, may use Flash or other similar technologies to enable the display. These technologies are in the hands of third parties, and you should consult their privacy policies for the consequences of installing or using them. E.g., https://www.adobe.com/privacy/policies/flash-player.html.

 

Some third parties—like Google—may use cookies, clear gifs, web beacons, or other technologies to manage content on other websites based on your visits here. This happens when, for instance, you navigate onto this site from those third parties. These third parties may automatically collect information about your visits to this and other websites, your IP address, your Internet Service Provider, your browser, pages viewed, time spent on pages, links clicked, and other similar information. They can also use cookies and other technologies to provide analytics services. While this site is accessible to search engines and social media platforms, we don’t otherwise partner with or utilize the services of these third parties.

 

We sometimes link to other websites whose privacy policies we do not control. We are not responsible for the policies of other websites. When you access another website through the links on this site or any of our social media accounts, using that information falls under the control of that site’s policy. Please read the privacy statements for each website you visit.

 

Interactive and Social Media Features

When you use this site or post to one of the campaign’s social media profiles, the information that you post, as well as any information you share with individuals through the site or share through social network sites, will be available to other users and may become available to the public. You should be cautious about giving out personal information to others or sharing personal information in public or private online forums. We are not responsible for the actions of any third parties with whom you share personal information. In some cases—as on Facebook—there may be privacy settings regarding the information available to others, and we suggest you take time to familiarize yourself with and use these options.

 

Final Guarantee of Privacy

I promise only to use the information that you provide when joining the campaign for campaign purposes. I will not sell your personally-identifiable information to anyone. Information submitted to third parties, however, may go other third parties. They may store and use the personally identifying information that you submit, along with all the information discussed above. Those parties all have their own privacy policies, and we are not responsible for how they apply.

 

Please contact me if you have any questions about this policy, or want to access, correct, or withdraw consent to share the information that you gave us. Protecting your privacy is of the utmost importance to me. As such, I take security very seriously, and will do what I can to be sure that your information is guarded. But keep in mind that no measure can guarantee perfect protection.
