Organizations can use BallotBox to create online polls, and invite individuals to vote in those polls.

What information is collected by this online application?

The organization that is BallotBoxOnline’s customer determines the information collected by this online application.

BallotBoxOnline accesses and uses that information only at the direction of the organization, subject to a few narrow exceptions. BallotBoxOnline may access, use, and disclose that information if necessary to respond to legal process, required by law, relevant to the assertion or defense of a legal claim, or believed to be appropriate to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of BallotBoxOnline or any other person.

Who shares information collected by this online application?

Information collected by this online application is shared by BallotBoxOnline with the organization that is BallotBoxOnline’s customer.

Will information collected by this online application be used to send unsolicited email messages or direct mail?

BallotBoxOnline will not use information collected by this online application to send any communications other than in the ordinary course of the online application’s operation (such as reminding individuals who are authorized to vote in a particular poll, or responding to password requests), as directed by the organization that is BallotBoxOnline’s customer, or in the event of an emergency, as determined by BallotBoxOnline based on the circumstances. BallotBoxOnline will not use information collected by this online application to send unrelated commercial email (spam), and will not authorize anyone else to do so.

Does this online application use cookies?

The online application uses cookies to provide a better user experience if cookies are enabled in your browser, but cookies are not required for the application to function.

How secure is this online application?

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, BallotBoxOnline has put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information collected by this online application. No computer system can be made completley secure, especially if it connected to the Internet, but security and privacy are priorities for BallotBoxOnline.

How does BallotBoxOnline protect the privacy of children?

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, BallotBoxOnline does not collect or maintain information within this application from individuals we actually know are under 13 years old, and no part of this online application is targeted to anyone under 13. BallotBoxOnline requires the organizations that are its customers to honor this commitment, and not to knowingly accept information from, or to target the use of this online application to, anyone under 13.

What happens when there are changes in this policy?

Subject to its contractual commitments to the organizations that are its customers, BallotBoxOnline may change or alter this Privacy Policy at any time. If a change is made, BallotBoxOnline will publish the revised version of the policy at this Web address at least 7 days before the change becomes effective. We will continue to use personally identifiable information collected through this online application in accordance with the policy that was in effect when the information was collected, unless we notify you of the change by letter or email message and give you an opportunity to opt out of the change.
