Your Privacy

When you join the Equal Justice USA online community, you provide us with information about you, such as your name, email address, and postal address. Our goal is to use this information to include YOU in the work of EJUSA as we advocate for a justice system that is fair, effective, and responsive to everyone impacted by crime. We are committed to your privacy and respect the information you have entrusted to us.

This policy may be updated or refined from time to time, so please check back for the latest information.

Our National Distribution Lists

We maintain two national distribution lists:

  1. Equal Justice USA
  2. Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty

When you sign up for one of those lists, your information is not added to the other. In addition to national emails, we occasionally filter the national lists to send emails targeted at your geographic region for specific events or actions relevant only to a geographical area.

How We Will Use Your Information

There are three things that we will do with your information:

  1. We will send you periodic updates and news items about our work and the issues we work on.
  2. We will periodically ask you to take specific actions that can substantially help achieve the goals of our campaigns.
  3. We will solicit your financial help for the work of Equal Justice USA. You may call us or email us to let us know whether and how often to contact you to ask for such help.

Information Security

When you give EJUSA personal information, it is located on a computer system accessible only through a secure website by EJUSA staff. Another copy of your data may be located in a secure database on the EJUSA premises.

When you give us financial information, we use industry-standard SSL 128 or 256 bit security certificates to fully encrypt the transactions. To guarantee that your data transmission over the Internet is secure, please look for the lock icon in the status bar of your web browser. Note that EJUSA never receives your credit card information directly when you make an online donation, and as such we do not retain any credit card information.

Once we receive your information (ie non-credit card information), we make our best effort to ensure its security on our system including physical and electronic access control. We are committed to taking reasonable steps to protect the individual identifying information that you provide to us.

Sharing Information

EJUSA does not rent or sell your email address under any circumstances.  From time to time, we may forward you information from other like-minded organizations, but we will exercise discretion before forwarding such information.

Editing Your Information and the Communications You Receive

We are happy to adjust your communications preferences so that we can keep you informed in the most comfortable manner about the work that is of most interest to you. If you would like to change the frequency with which you are contacted or to modify any information we have collected about you, please contact us by phone, postal mail, or email using the contact details provided on this page.
