Democracy Fund collects your personally identifiable information (“PII”) through the Websites when you choose to provide such information, such as when you (i) register to be on our mailing list, (ii) access various content or features, (iii) or directly contact us with questions or feedback. Democracy Fund also collects your IP address and web log data. Please do not disclose more personal data than is requested.
We will use your PII only (i) to provide you occasional updates about Democracy Fund, our partners and affiliates, and our work and events that we think might interest you; (ii) to operate and enhance the Websites; (iii) to address any questions or feedback you submit; (iv) to perform research and analyses, or for other internal purposes to improve the quality of our work; or (v) as otherwise described to you at the point of collection or pursuant to your consent. If you provide your email address, we may send you emails. Where required in the relevant jurisdiction, we will obtain your consent before sending you promotional emails. If you wish to opt out of emails you receive from Democracy Fund, you may do so by following the “unsubscribe” instructions in the email.
Each time you visit the Websites, Democracy Fund collects some information to improve the overall quality of your online experience.
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites with which the user communicates, although web browsers incorporate and activate this functionality in different ways, and it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted. There currently is disagreement, including among participants in the leading Internet standards-setting organization, concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals. Democracy Fund currently does not take action in response to these signals, but, if and when a standard is established and accepted, we may reassess how to respond to these signals.
Under Age 13. Democracy Fund does not knowingly collect or retain personally identifiable information about persons under 13 years of age. Any person who provides their personal information to Democracy Fund via the Websites represents that they are 13 years of age or older. The Websites do not knowingly solicit or collect personally identifiable information online from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we learn that a child under the age of 13 (or such legally required higher age) has submitted personally identifiable information online without parental consent, we will take all reasonable measures to delete such information from our databases and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required or allowed by law). If you become aware of any personally identifiable information we have collected from children under 13, please contact us through our contact page at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Under Age 18. Minors under 18 years of age may have the PII that they have provided to us through the Websites deleted by contacting us at email@example.com and requesting deletion. Please note that, while we make reasonable efforts to comply with such requests, deletion of your personal information does not ensure complete and comprehensive removal of that data from all our systems and back-up systems.
You have the right to request that your PII be removed from our database, changed or updated, and can do so by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If requested, we will promptly verify, amend, and/or delete your account and you will no longer receive emails from Democracy Fund. Your removal from the mailing list or database will not remove records of past transactions or delete information stored in our data backups and archives where we are required to keep your data for legitimate business reasons or to fulfill any legal requirements. Data on past transactions and data stored in backups and archives will be deleted in the normal course of our business. You have the right to access or, if required by applicable laws, receive a copy of your PII held by us by making a written request by sending an email to the contact link below.
In addition, you have the right to make a complaint to the relevant supervisory authority in your home country if you have concerns about Democracy Fund’s handling of your PII.
Democracy Fund understands that storing our data in a secure manner is essential. Democracy Fund stores PII and other data using reasonable physical, technical and administrative safeguards to secure data against foreseeable risks, such as unauthorized use, access, disclosure, destruction or modification. Please note, however, that while Democracy Fund has endeavored to create a secure and reliable website for users, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from the Websites or via e-mail cannot be guaranteed.
When you participate in Democracy Fund’s job application process, we will ask you to provide personal data such as: your name, email address, mailing address, and telephone number; your resume/CV, and cover letter outlining your work experience, educational history, and skills.
Please do not send us any sensitive personal data such as government-issued ID numbers, financial information, photos, or dates of birth. We do not need or want that data in a resume.
We may receive personal data about you from other sources, your references, prior employers, a person or company/organization authorized by you to submit an application on your behalf, and/or publicly-available sources.
If Democracy Fund makes an offer of employment, we will ask you to authorize us to obtain a consumer report or consumer investigative report. If you choose not to provide this authorization upon request, we will not be able to offer you employment.
In order to comply with federal law, all persons hired by Democracy Fund will be required to verify identity and eligibility to work in the United States and to complete the required employment eligibility verification form upon hire.
In addition, we will ask you to voluntarily provide information regarding your gender, veteran status, ethnicity, and disability status. This information, or your decision not to provide this information, will not impact your application in any way.
We may share your personal data with service providers (including recruiters) that assist us with recruiting, application, and employment processes and our affiliates and other third parties with whom you might work if you are offered and accept the job.
