Own Your Government, LLC  Privacy Policy

(Last Updated April 13, 2023)

Own Your Government, LLC (“OYG,” “we,” “us” and/or “our”) is dedicated to protecting your personal information and informing you about how we use it. This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy” or the “Policy”) is intended to provide information to our visitors and users (“you,” “your”) about how we collect, protect, share and use your information when you visit the Website, our Mobile App or use the Services. This Privacy Policy outlines how and when OYG collects, protects, shares, and uses information that can identify you individually (“Personal Information”), such as your name, email, telephone number, address, and date of birth. Personal Information does not include information that is anonymous, aggregated, or can no longer be used to identify you as an individual.

Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information through the Website or the Services. By using or submitting information through the Website or the Services, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the terms of this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy covers the privacy practices of OYG only. This Policy does not apply to the practices of third-party websites, services or applications, including third parties with which we partner. These third-party services are governed by each such third party’s privacy policy. OYG is not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of technology platforms other than that of OYG, and OYG is not responsible for the failure of unaffiliated third parties to honor their privacy obligations.

Please note that you retain all ownership rights over any Personal Information that you upload to the OYG platform. While your Data may be stored on OYG servers, we do not use or disclose your Data except as expressly stated in this Policy.

Information We Collect

When you interact with us through the Website or the Services, we may collect Personal Information as further described below:

Information You Provide

We collect Personal Information, including Name, Address, Email, Phone Number and Date of Birth (or Year of Birth), from you when you provide such information, such as when you create an Account, provide Registration or Account Information, or contact us with inquiries.

Information We Collect Automatically

Website Usage Information. OYG may use a variety of technologies that passively or automatically collect information about how the Website is accessed and used, including your browser type, device type, operating system, application version, the pages served to you, the time you browse, preceding page views, and your use of particular features of the Services. This statistical data helps us understand what is interesting and relevant to users of the Services so that we can best tailor our content to you.

Device Identifiers. OYG also automatically collects an IP address or other unique identifier for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively “Device”) you use to access the Website and the Services. In the case of a mobile device, a “Device Identifier” is a unique id that is automatically assigned by the device manufacturer and is transmitted to our servers when you access them. An IP address is automatically assigned to your computer or your router by your internet service provider and is transmitted to our servers when you access them. We may use an IP Address and/or Device Identifier to, among other things, administer the Website, help diagnose problems with our servers, analyze trends, track users’ web page movements, monitor against theft and fraud, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Session Trackers. In operating the Website and the Services, we may use cookies and similar session tracking technologies (“Session Trackers”). Session Trackers help provide additional functionality to the Website and the Services, customize users’ experiences and help us analyze Services usage more accurately for research and product development purposes. We (including third parties that we work with) may place session trackers on your Device for security purposes, to facilitate navigation of the Website and the Services, and to personalize your experience while using our Services.

If you would prefer not to accept Session Trackers when using the Website or the Services, follow the instructions provided by your website or mobile browser (usually located within the “Help”, “Tools” or “Edit” facility) to modify your Session Tracker settings. Please note that if you disable Session Trackers, you may not be able to access certain parts of our Services and other parts of our Services may not work properly. As a result, we recommend that you leave Session Trackers turned on when accessing the Services because they allow you to take advantage of some of the features of the Services.

Web Beacons. In addition to Session Trackers, we may use web beacons (also known as “clear GIFs”), which are transparent graphic images placed on a web page or in an email and indicate that a page or email has been viewed or tell your browser to get content from another server. We use web beacons to measure traffic to or from, or use of, our online forms, tools or content items and related browsing behavior and to improve your experience when using the Services. We may also use customized links or other similar technologies to track hyperlinks that you click and associate that information with your Personal Information in order to provide you with more focused communications.

Non-Personal Information

Additionally, we may modify and combine Personal Information in a manner that does not personally identify you or any other individual and thus, no longer constitutes “Personal Information”. We may use this non-Personal Information, such as aggregate user statistics, demographic information, analytics, and usage information, for any lawful purpose.

How We Use Information

We may use the information we collect for a variety of reasons related to our operation and your use of the Website and the Services. We may combine information about you that we collect on-line, via mobile applications, and from third-party sources. Examples of specific ways in which OYG may use your Personal Information include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Responding to your requests (including, for example, if you contact us to ask a question or report an issue with the Services, we may use the Personal Information you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem).
  • Improving the content, appearance and utility of the Website and the Services.
  • Tracking our visitors’ use of the Website and the Services for internal research purposes and to enhance our product messaging to you.
  • Providing necessary notices to you and notifying you about updates to the Website or the Services.
  • Configuring your Account settings.
  • Communicating with you about your Account and/or use of the Services; and
  • Sending you marketing or promotional material.

Email Communications. We may use your Personal Information to provide you with marketing or other promotional communications via email. If, at any time, you would like to stop receiving these promotional e-mails, you may follow the opt-out instructions contained in any such e-mail. Please note that by opting out, you may prohibit OYG from informing you of offerings that may be of interest to you. It may take up to ten business days for us to process opt-out requests. If you opt-out of receiving emails or promotions from us, we still may send you e-mails about your Account or any products or services you have requested or received from us, or for other customer service purposes.

Personally identifiable information (PII) . We only use your PII data to service and maintain your Account pursuant to your instructions. We do not use your PII Data for any other purpose.

Disclosure of Personal Information

Except as provided herein, OYG will not sell, rent or otherwise disclose Personal Information about you to third parties.

Third party providers. We may share your Personal Information with unaffiliated third parties that provide certain services to us, including, but not limited to email management, customer care or performing analytics. These third parties may have access to Personal Information or non-Personal Information in order to perform their functions on our behalf.  However, these third parties are only permitted to use your Personal Information, for the purpose for which it has been provided or to administer, service or process transactions that you have authorized, and may not disclose it to any other third party except at our express direction and in accordance with this Policy.

Business transfers. As we continue to develop our business, we may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires us or our assets, or assets related to the Website or the Services, Personal Information, information about how the Website and the Services are accessed and used, and any other information that we have collected about the users of the Website and the Services may be disclosed to such entity as part of the business transfer. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, certain information may be considered an asset of ours and as such may be sold or transferred to third parties. If a business transfer occurs, we will notify you before your Personal Information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy. At that time, you may choose to delete certain Personal Information associated with your Account or you may cancel your Account. If you choose to continue using the Website or the Services, your Personal Information will remain subject to the promises and commitments contained in this Policy until such time as this Policy is updated or amended by the acquiring party upon notice to you.

Legal disclosures. OYG may transfer and disclose information, including your Personal Information, information about how the Website and the Services are accessed and used, and information from our service providers, to third parties to comply with a legal obligation; when we believe in good faith that the law requires it; at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation; to verify or enforce our Terms and Conditions or other applicable policies; to respond to an emergency; or otherwise to protect the rights, property, safety or security of third parties, users of our Website or the Services, or the public.

With your permission. At your direction or request, we may share your Personal Information with specified third parties.

Syncing, Linking, Connecting Your Third-Party Accounts with the Services, Importing Data.

You may choose to sync your OYG Account with information from other accounts held by third parties such as social media or streaming providers. To sync your third-party account information, we must access your online account with those third-party providers. We will redirect your screen to the third party’s OAUTH2 login page, which will ask for your user name, password, and any other login data that you have set up with your third party provider to enable access. OYG does not have information to your credentials on the third-party login page. 

By syncing your OYG Account, you authorize us to access your third-party account information maintained by identified third parties, on your behalf as your agent, and you expressly authorize such third parties to disclose your information to us. Please note that OYG may authenticate to your third-party accounts from time to time using a “token” that the third parties provide us with, to sync your OYG Account with information from your third-party accounts. More specifically, OYG will only connect into your third-party accounts to establish, maintain, or debug a secure connection between your OYG Account and your third-party accounts or to verify the accuracy of a sync; as noted above, we will not share or disclose the data we receive from the third-party or any other information associated with your third-party accounts to any other party unless you expressly direct us to do so.

Updating Your Personal Information and Information Retention

If you wish to modify, verify, correct, delete, or update any of your Personal Information collected through the Website or App, you may edit your profile.

In accordance with our routine record keeping, we may delete certain records that contain Personal Information you have submitted through the Website or the Services. We are under no obligation to store such Personal Information indefinitely and disclaim any liability arising out of, or related to, the destruction of such Personal Information. In addition, you should be aware that it is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases without some residual data remaining because of backups and other reasons.

We will retain your Personal Information, along with any 3rd party-data that you upload, enter into our web or mobile apps, or that we retrieve from third parties that you have previously consented for us to access, as long as you maintain an Account, or as needed to provide you services, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, or enforce our agreements. You can deactivate your Account by contacting us at exec@ownyourgov.com.  When you do, data that can identify you will be removed from the Website and the Services. Backup copies of this data will be removed from our server based upon an automated schedule, which means it may persist in our archive for a short period. OYG may continue to use your de-identified data after you deactivate your Account.

Security of your Personal Information

OYG maintains reasonable safeguards to prevent unauthorized intrusion to its Website and Services and the alteration, acquisition or misuse of Personal Information by unauthorized persons. Some of these safeguards include strong (AES-256) encryption on physically separate servers, periodic penetration testing and monitoring for intrusions. OYG restricts authorized access to your Personal Information to those persons who have a legitimate purpose to know that information to provide products or services to you and those persons you have authorized to have access to such information. However, we cannot guarantee that your communication with us will be completely secure or free from unauthorized access by third parties. You use the Website and provide us with your Personal Information at your own risk.

You need to prevent unauthorized access to your Account and Personal Information by implementing and protecting your Device password appropriately and limiting access to your Device. We also recommend that you change your Device password periodically and use a strong password. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your Account username and password. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your Account has been compromised), you must immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us and change your password immediately via the Website.

Children Under 13

The Website is not directed to or intended for children under 14 years of age, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 14. If we become aware that a child under 14 has provided us with Personal Information, we will make reasonable efforts to delete such information from our files.

Your California Privacy Rights

We do not share your Personal Information with third parties for their marketing purposes without your consent.

California Do Not Track Disclosures

OYG does not track you across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. Nor do we knowingly authorize third parties to conduct online tracking on OYG’s Website or the Services.

Changes to this Policy

This Policy is the sole authorized statement of OYG’s practices with respect to the collection of Personal Information and the subsequent use and disclosure of such information. Any summaries of this Policy generated by third party software or otherwise shall have no legal effect, are in no way binding upon OYG, shall not be relied upon in substitute for this Policy, and neither supersede nor modify this Policy.

OYG may revise this Policy from time to time without prior notice to you, and any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Privacy Policy on the Website. You should bookmark and periodically review this page to ensure that you are familiar with the most current version of this Policy. You can determine when this Policy was last revised by checking the “Last Updated” legend at the top of the Policy.
