What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

When you send us an email using the contact form we request your name and email address. In addition, we collect your IP address and browser information to assist with technical issues related to the website and to prevent spam.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Pages on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Who we share your data with

We take steps to not share your data with any third-parties. Sometimes this this cannot be avoided such as when we embed a YouTube video on the website. In this case the data we share is limited to your IP address, browser information, and any cookies that have been set by the third-party website.

We keep your personally identifiable information secure. This includes, but is not limited to, your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number. Your data is stored in a secure database with password only access. Your data is also encrypted.

When you make a donation to the campaign on this website using our third-party partner, Anedot your data, including your name, address, employer, occupation, and donation amount (by law) must be communicated to the Texas Ethics Commission, the Federal Election Commission, and any other election regulatory agencies.

We use Matomo Analytics for statistical analysis of traffic to this website. All of the above referenced data is collected and processed by this analytics package which is not provided to any third-party and is kept completely anonymous.

Privacy is a fundamental right and our analytics software and as much of our technology stack as possible is open source and subject to review and audit by third-party security and privacy companies.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
