We at B4B may obtain your personal information through three channels: (1) information you provide directly to us; (2) information we collect automatically when you use the Sites; and (3) information we obtain from other sources.
In addition, the Donate Button and other tools used by B4B may collect information as required by the Federal Election Commission (“FEC”). For example, the FEC requires that the name, mailing address, occupation, and employer of all individuals whose donations exceed $200 per calendar year be collected and disclosed.
When you access or use our Sites, depending upon the platform, we, or the platform provider, may automatically collect information about you, including:
We may also obtain information from other sources and combine it with information that you provide and that we collect through our Sites. For example, we may receive information from publicly available sources and from private organizations. We may also receive information from a social media site if you connect to us or our Sites through that site.
We, BFPCC, or our respective affiliates may use your personal information for various purposes, including to:
We may also share aggregated or anonymized information that does not directly identify you.
The Sites may offer social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook “Like” button), which let you share actions you take on our Sites with other media, and vice versa. The use of such features enables the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the entity that provides the social sharing feature. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the entities that provide these features.

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Removing or rejecting browser cookies does not necessarily affect third-party flash cookies that may be used in connection with our Sites and any related Services. To delete or disable flash cookies please visit adobe.com/products/flashplayer/security for more information. If you choose to refuse or delete cookies, you will need to repeat this process if you use another computer or browser. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our Site and any related Services.
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites and other online services with which the browser communicates. There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites and online services should do when they receive these signals. We currently do not take action in response to these signals. If and when a standard for responding is established, we may revisit our policy on responding to these signals.
You may opt out of receiving promotional emails or text messages by following the instructions in those emails or text messages. If you opt out, we may still send you other types of emails, such as those about your use of our Sites, Services or any donations or transactions (the latter being made via the BFPCC link). Please note that opt out requests may not take effect immediately and may take a reasonable amount of time to receive, process, and apply, during which time your information shall remain subject to your prior privacy settings. Further, please note that (unless required by applicable law) we may not be able to retrieve or rescind any information provided to third parties prior to your election to opt out.
With your consent, we may send push notifications or alerts to your mobile device. You can deactivate these messages at any time by changing the notification settings on your mobile device. Recipients of text messages may opt-out of receiving them by replying “STOP” or “OPT OUT” to the mobile message sent by B4B.
No data transmission or storage can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. As a result, although we take reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that we collect and maintain.
California law provides California residents with the right to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Although B4B has very few direct marketing campaigns, to the extent that we do and such direct marketing campaigns meet California regulatory thresholds, B4B shall provide California residents with a cost-free method to opt out of having personal information shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
If you are a California resident and would like B4B to refrain from such sharing, (and the above regulatory thresholds have been met), please send your opt-out request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include “California Privacy Rights Request” as the email’s subject line. In your request, please include your full name, cell phone number and mailing address.
