Definition: Referring Partners
Organizations interested in womens issues may become partners with this website that provides them the ability to create and/or endorse petitions. You most likely arrived at this site by clicking on a URL from an organization that you are interested in. The organization that provided that URL is known as a 'Referring Partner'. If you came to the site some other way, or if your referring partner hasn't endorsed a petition you sign, then the default Referring Partner is TWSR.
The information you provide when signing a petition is made available to the Referring Partner as well as to TWSR. 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.
When you check the 'Keep Me Informed' box, the Referring Partner may choose to contact you by email or phone number (if supplied) with information pertinent to their goals.
We do not share the information you’ve given us with any other parties without your explicit permission.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may share aggregate information about who and where our members are with third parties including, but not limited to, legislators, partner organizations, and political campaigns. This information will be disclosed in aggregate form only and will not, under any circumstances, contain personally identifiable information. Examples of this type of aggregate data include, but are not limited to, how many petition signers live in a town, or how many new people from a particular state have signed petitions this year. We may also use such aggregate information to analyze trends, administer the Site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
