If you’ve participated in any of our campaigns, or joined any of our lists, AMERICAblog might send you updates by e-mail. You can unsubscribe from any and all of those emails by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email. We do not share the information you’ve given us with unaffiliated groups without your explicit permission. We may share some of your personal information with the following affiliated groups:

* Affiliated Third Parties – for example, our database administrators or organizations that provide extra organizers at an urgent time – for the sole purpose of helping Us do our work. These groups do not share your personal information or use it for any purpose other than as instructed by Us.

* Third Party Administrators, such as organizations we engage to facilitate large distribution of messages. The content of these emails will be from AMERICAblgo and these third parties do not have direct access to your personally identifiable information.

Please review this privacy policy periodically because we modify it from time to time.

Petitions and Surveys

For petitions and surveys you’ve signed or completed, we treat your name, city, state, and comments as public information – for example, we may provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to the President and legislators, other targets, or to the press. We will not make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit it to members of Congress and to the President as part of a petition. This is a standard industry practice in such situations. In no such case will we disclose your email address or phone number without your permission. We may also make your comments, along with your first name, city and state available to the press and public online.
