What information does www.LWV.org collect from website visitors and how is this information used?
When you visit the League of Women Voters’ website, your browser automatically sends us an Internet Protocol ("IP") address and certain other information (including the type of browser you use). We will use this IP address and other information to manage our website.
We will ask you to provide additional contact information, which may include your name, street address, city, state, zip code, phone number and billing information, depending upon which of the following you wish to do:

The League will never rent, sell or trade your email address or phone number with any third party.
The League may, from time to time, share the name and mailing address of its non-member financial supporters with other non-profit organizations. Members and supporters, (such as donors, Action Alert and email recipients) may also receive additional communications from the League, such as occasional news and alerts about the issues on which we work.
Like many websites, we use "cookie" technology. A "cookie" is a piece of data stored on the user's machine that enables the browser to store and recall information and only has meaning to the League's website. This cookie is used to facilitate access to www.lwv.org. Some portions of the League's website are hosted by vendors providing services to the League, such as our grassroots advocacy tool (Wired For Change); these vendors have their own privacy policies.
