Privacy Policy

Global Democratic PAC (also known as Global Democrats) takes individual privacy seriously. We wish to ensure that our website meets all relevant legal and regulatory requirements. Our privacy policy is published on our public website, that is, on this page; and any changes made to our privacy policy are promptly reflected in the content of this page.

IP Addresses and Log File Data

The Global Democrats website does not automatically capture or store personal information other than logging the user's IP (Internet Protocol) address (each connection to the Internet has an IP address), or the location of your machine (e.g., computer, tablet, smart phone) or network on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. In order to improve the website's quality, we may use IP addresses in the aggregate to track which pages people visit on our website.

Server logs include statistical information, such as visitors' IP addresses, type of operating systems, time and duration of visit, website pages requested, and identify categories of visitors by items such as domains and browser types. Our servers automatically log information about visits to our website in the normal course of establishing and maintaining Internet connections. These statistics are reported in the aggregate to our Internet and communications service provider, and are used to improve our website and ensure that it provides the optimal Internet experience for visitors.

We do not link server log information to any other data in a way that would enable us to identify individual visitors. However, we may review server logs for security purposes, for example, to detect intrusions into our network. In the event of a criminal investigation, server log data could be used to trace and identify individuals for prosecution.

We may also use it to alert you of campaigns you may be interested in.
