Jefferson County Democratic Party Privacy Policy
At the Jefferson County Democratic Party (JCDP), we are committed to protecting your privacy online. While using our website, you do not have to identify yourself or divulge personal information, though certain features, including polling place locators and ballot status requests, do require identification. If you should choose to give us your personal information, you decide the amount of information you provide.
The Democratic Party is continually trying to expand online activism and to give voters the information they need in a timely manner. As a result, we may periodically ask you to provide information such as your name, address, phone number and email address in an effort to enhance our ability to work with you as an online activist. If you choose not to give us any information, we may not be able to provide you with timely information regarding events and issues important to you as a politically interested and active citizen.
The Jefferson County Democratic Party maintains several interconnected websites at any given time. The principal website, jeffcodems.org, is permanent. Other issue-specific websites are created and removed as needed to highlight important national issues and events. All websites owned and operated by the Jefferson County Democratic Party are identified by the text "Paid for by the Jefferson County Democratic Party".
Our privacy policy explains the information practices we use at jeffcodems.org and other Democratic Party websites related to:
  • How we protect your information
  • How we use your information
  • How to correct information you provided
  • How to contact us about privacy
Our site links to a limited number of other websites. The JCDP is not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of these websites.
This privacy policy may be amended by the JCDP at any time without notice other than posting of such amendments on this site.
How do we protect your information?
Our website has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of the information under our control. Our servers are located in a locked, secure environment.
When you contribute online, the JCDP uses state-of-the-art security protocols to protect sensitive data, such as personal information and credit card numbers. The privacy of this data is ensured with a keyed symmetric encryption algorithm. While this data is being transferred, it is protected by the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) using a 128-bit signed certificate. Encryption keys are secured by Verisign.
