Independent National Committee (INC) Our Privacy Policy

Independent National Committee (INC) is committed to protecting your privacy.  This Privacy Policy describes how Independent National Committee (INC) may collect, use and disclose information when you access www.incommittee.org (“Site”) and/or use products and services made available through the Site (collectively referred to as “Services”). 


1. Personal Identifiable Information and Non-Personal Identifiable Information. a. Personal Identifiable Information. Independent National Committee (INC) collects Personal Identifiable Information (“PII”) you voluntarily provide when you access and use the Services.  PII includes your:  

  • Name;
  • Phone number;
  • Email address;
  • Credit card information; and/or
  • Other PII you voluntarily share.

b. Non-Personal Identifiable Information.  Independent National Committee (INC) uses industry standard technologies to collect non-personal identifiable information, and this may include sending cookies to your computer or mobile device.  Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory that helps improve your experience.  Independent National Committee (INC) may also collect information using web beacons (also known as “tracking pixels”).  Web beacons are electronic images that may be used in connection with Services or emails and help deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage, improve or analyze the effectiveness of any Services, and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon.  For more information about cookies, and how to disable them, please see “Opting Out” below.  Independent National Committee (INC) may also collect unique device identifiers, and mobile network information, and use and collection of any such non-personal identifiable information by Independent National Committee (INC), including in aggregate, is not prohibited by this Privacy Policy. c. Opting Out.  If you no longer wish to receive communication about the Services you may opt out by following the unsubscribe link located at the bottom of each communication.  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.  If you choose to reject all cookies, you may be unable to use certain Services.  Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features.  Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the website or online service that a user visits, indicating that the use does not wish to be tracked.  California law requires that an operator of a website or other online service disclose how the operator responds to a Do Not Track signal and whether third parties may collect information about an individual’s online activities from the operator’s website.  Independent National Committee (INC) is committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected through your use of the Services. 


2. Use of Information. Depending on how you use the Services, Independent National Committee (INC) may use your information:  

  • To make Services available to you;
  • To enhance existing Services, or develop new Services;
  • To send updates, alerts, and other notifications to you;
  • To allow you to make transactions or to communicate through the Services ;
  • To communicate with you about Services that you may be interested in;
  • To perform functions as otherwise described to you at the time of collection; and
  • To protect Independent National Committee (INC)’s interest and/or to enforce one or more provisions of the Terms of Use and/or Privacy Policy.

3. Disclosure. Independent National Committee (INC) may disclose PII:  (a) upon lawful request, in response to legal process, and when required to comply with laws; (b) to enforce our agreements, corporate policies, Terms of Use/Privacy Policy; or (c) to protect the rights, property or safety of Independent National Committee (INC) and/or other users of the Services.  In the event of a bankruptcy or a sale, merger or acquisition, Independent National Committee (INC) may transfer your PII to a separate entity. That entity will be responsible for ensuring your PII is used only for authorized purposes and in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy and applicable law. 


4. Information Security. Independent National Committee (INC) takes reasonable steps to maintain appropriate physical, technical and administrative security to help prevent loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure or modification of your PII.  While Independent National Committee (INC) takes reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal information, no system or transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. 


5. Third-Party Websites. The Services may contain links to third-party websites.  Independent National Committee (INC) does not review the privacy practices of these other websites and recommends that you review their privacy policies before sharing your personal information.  Independent National Committee (INC) does not have any control over such third-party websites and is not responsible for their privacy policies or practices. 


6. Minors Prohibited. The Services are not directed at children and Independent National Committee (INC) does not knowingly collect PII directly from children.  Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (“COPPA”), Independent National Committee (INC) will not knowingly request or collect PII from any child under the age of thirteen (13) without requiring parental consent.  Children can access and browse certain aspects of Services without any personal information being collected.  For more information you may contact Independent National Committee (INC) visit http://www.ftc.gov/privacy/privacyinitiatives/childrens.html for information from the Federal Trade Commission about protecting children’s privacy online. 


7. California Law. Effective January 1, 2005, under California Civil Code Section 1798.83, if an individual who is a California resident has provided Personal Information to a business in connection with a business relationship that is primarily for personal, family, or household purposes, and if that business has within the immediately preceding calendar year disclosed such an individual's PII to a third-party and knows or should have known that such third-party used the information for its own direct marketing purposes, then that business is obligated to disclose in writing to such individual upon request, what PII was shared and with whom it was shared. Any request for a disclosure required under this California law should be sent to us at contact@incommittee.org or via regular mail to Independent National Committee (INC), 2030 Rainbow Lake Lane #318, West Bend, WI 53090.

8. International Visitors. The Services are hosted in and provided from the United States.  If you access and/or use Services from the European Union (“E.U.”) or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from the laws of the United States of America (“U.S.A.”), please note that you are transferring your personal data to the U.S.A. The U.S.A. does not have the same data protection laws as the E.U. and some other regions.  By providing your PII you consent to the transfer of your personal data to the U.S.A. and the use of your PII in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
