Information Collection and Methods
Voluntary Information: We may collect personal information that you willingly provide, such as your name, email address, postal address, phone number, mobile number, and geographic location. This data may be furnished when you request information, register, make a donation, send us an email, subscribe to email or text message updates, connect through social media, complete a form, or for other purposes. We may also collect demographic information, such as gender, date of birth, occupation, employer name, and zip code. In limited situations, we may collect payment information, like a credit card number, if necessary for a requested service or transaction. Voluntary personal information does not encompass aggregate data, which refers to data about groups or categories of users with individual identifying information removed.
Automatically Generated Information: We may also gather non-personally identifiable information generated automatically during your visits to the Site or when our ads are displayed elsewhere on the internet. This data may include your IP address, web pages visited before and after our Site, date and time of access, domain type, your mobile device's specifications, unique device ID, web pages viewed, links clicked within the Site, and interactions with our ads. Various technologies, such as cookies and pixels, may be used to collect this information. For instance, an IP address helps us determine the general geographical location of your device. We utilize non-personally identifiable data to improve our Site.
Cookies and Other Technologies
Overview: We employ cookies and other technologies to gather specific information when your web browser accesses the Site or other websites within our network. Cookies are small data pieces stored by your browser at the request of a website. Although cookies enhance your Site experience, you have the option to block, delete, or receive notifications about their use. When you watch videos on our Site, third parties may also place "flash cookies" on your computer. Deleting or rejecting browser cookies may not remove flash cookies, necessitating a visit to https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/security to disable them.
Refusing cookies could impact certain Site features.
We may allow other companies to set cookies on our Site for tracking purposes or to process credit card transactions. When you select "remember me" during login, we set a persistent cookie to store your login information securely. This enables us to send confirmations, receipts, updates, alerts, support messages, and facilitate your Site use. The persistent cookie remains active until you uncheck the "remember me" option.
Disabling Cookies: Your browser's "Help" section typically provides instructions on preventing cookie acceptance, receiving notifications of incoming cookies, and disabling cookies altogether. Note that rejecting or blocking cookies may affect your ability to fully use our Site.
Web Beacons: Our Site pages and emails may include small electronic files known as web beacons, clear gifs, pixel tags, or single-pixel gifs. These files allow us to count users who visit these pages, gather statistics about web page popularity, and verify system and server integrity.
When you opt-in to our service, we will send you an SMS message to confirm your signup.
You can cancel the SMS service anytime by texting "STOP." After you send "STOP," we will confirm your unsubscription. Subsequently, you will not receive further SMS messages from us. To rejoin, simply sign up as you did initially, and we will resume sending SMS messages to you.
If you forget the supported keywords, text "HELP," and we will respond with instructions on using our service and how to unsubscribe.
We can deliver messages to major mobile carriers, including AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, U.S. Cellular, Alltel, Boost Mobile, Nextel, and Virgin Mobile. Please note that carriers are not responsible for delayed or undelivered messages. Message and data rates may apply, so it's advisable to contact your wireless provider for details.

Third Party Features
Social Media Platforms and Websites: Any information, communications, or material submitted to our Site, such as on social media platforms (e.g., Facebook, Twitter), is done at your own risk without an expectation of privacy. We cannot control the actions of other users on social media platforms and are not responsible for content or submissions on those platforms. Be cautious about sharing personal information in public forums, as the information can be collected and used by unknown individuals.
If our Site includes interactive features, please be aware that your use of these features may involve publicly posting messages, content, or other information. While we take precautions, your use of these features is at your own risk.
Submitting Your Email: Providing your email address on the Site may result in its inclusion in the Committee to Elect Mike Hoadley's email list. You can unsubscribe from our emails at any time by clicking the "unsubscribe" link in each email. Your email address will be removed from our marketing list, with a reasonable timeframe for processing your request.
We employ technology and security measures to protect your personal information. However, no internet data transmission is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your data, we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to or received from us.
Overview: We may use non-personally identifiable information to provide more tailored online advertising and content. If you wish to stop the collection of specific information for tailored online ads and messages, you can opt out here. Opting out will place a cookie on your browser to indicate that we should not collect data for tailored advertising. If you delete cookies, use a different browser, or change computers, you may need to revisit the opt-out page. You can also visit the Digital Advertising Alliance site to opt out of interest-based advertising from other third parties using cookies.
We strongly urge parents and guardians to monitor their children's online activities. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13.
