PRIVACY POLICY

Date of Last Revision - October 18th, 2021

This Privacy Policy explains how Nevadans for Steven Horsford (the “Campaign”, “we” or “us”) collects, uses, and discloses information about you when you access or use our websites, mobile sites, and mobile application that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Site”).

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy, and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our website homepage or sending you a notification). We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the Site or otherwise interact with us to stay informed about our information practices and the choices available to you.

 

COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

Typically, we obtain your personal information through three channels: (1) information you provide directly to us; (2) information we collect automatically when you use the Site; and (3) information we obtain from other sources.

 

INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US

We collect information you provide directly to us.  For example, we collect information when you sign up to receive updates, request information, fill out a form, sign a petition, sign up as a volunteer, sign up for an event, create an account, participate in a contest or promotion, make a donation or purchase, communicate with us via third party social media sites, request support, send us an email, or otherwise communicate with us.  The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, postal address, phone number, credit card and other payment information (although payment information is generally collected directly by a third-party processor), and any other information you choose to provide.

You are responsible for providing a copy of this Privacy Policy to anyone whose contact or identifying information that you share with us.

In addition, the Federal Election Commission (“FEC”) may require us to collect certain personal information from donors.  For example, the FEC requires us to collect (and disclose to them) the name, mailing address, occupation, and employer of all individuals whose donations to the Campaign exceed $200 per election cycle.

ADVERTISING AND ANALYTICS SERVICES PROVIDED BY OTHERS

We may allow others to provide analytics services and serve advertisements on our behalf across the web and in mobile applications. These entities may use cookies, web beacons, device identifiers and other technologies to collect information about your use of the Site and other websites and applications, including your IP address, web browser, mobile network information, pages viewed, time spent on pages or in apps, links clicked, and conversion information.  This information may be used by the Campaign and others to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver advertising and content targeted to your interests on our Site and other websites, and better understand your online activity.

This enables third-party vendors, including Google, to show our ads on sites across the Internet.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THESE TERMS, YOU AND THE CAMPAIGN MUTUALLY AGREE TO WAIVE OUR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES IN A COURT OF LAW BY A JUDGE OR JURY AND AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BY ARBITRATION, AS SET FORTH BELOW.

Any dispute between the parties to these Terms, any dispute between you and the Campaign, as well as any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Site (in each case, a “Dispute”) will be settled by arbitration before a single arbitrator administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Consumer Arbitration Rules that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated, as modified by the terms set forth in these Terms.  Copies of these rules can be obtained at the AAA’s website (www.adr.org) (the “AAA Rules”) or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if requested by you and if proper based on the facts and circumstances of the Disputes presented, the arbitrator shall have the discretion to select a different set of AAA Rules, but in no event shall the arbitrator consolidate more than one person’s Disputes, or otherwise preside over any form of representative, collective, or class proceeding. The parties may select a different arbitration administrator upon mutual written agreement.  The arbitration shall be governed by the state law or federal law applicable to each specific claim brought, with the exception that arbitrability shall be determined by the arbitrator and governed in primary conformity with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. and, secondly, any state arbitration act. 

The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof, provided that any award may be challenged in a court of competent jurisdiction.

To ensure timely resolution of disputes, the party initiating arbitration must do so within the statute of limitations (deadline for filing) provided by applicable law pertaining to the Dispute, subject to any shorter period of time set forth in these Terms which is intended to shorten the applicable statute of limitations.  The failure to initiate arbitration within this time limit will bar any such claim. 

The arbitration will be conducted in Clark County, Nevada, before a neutral arbitrator.  The arbitration will have jurisdiction to determine the arbitrability of any claim.  The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant all monetary or equitable relief (including, without limitation, ancillary costs and fees) available under state and federal law.  The award rendered by the arbitrator shall be in writing, setting forth the essential findings and conclusions upon which the award is based.  The award may be entered and enforced by any court having jurisdiction thereof.  These Terms and its enforcement shall be governed by the law of the state of Nevada and any discovery shall be permitted in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act and any applicable state arbitration act, subject to AAA Rules. 

No Class or Consolidated Disputes. YOU AND THE CAMPAIGN AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS, AS APPLICABLE, AGAINST THE CAMPAIGN ONLY IN YOUR  INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.  Further, unless both you and the Campaign agree otherwise, the trier of fact may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.  The arbitrator shall have no authority to consider or resolve any Dispute or issue any relief on any basis other than an individual basis. The arbitrator shall have no authority to consider or resolve any Dispute or issue any relief on a class, collective, or representative basis. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claims.

The exceptions to the Dispute resolution provisions of this Section are: (a) actions by the Campaign for equitable relief; and (b) any other claim where an agreement to arbitrate is unenforceable under applicable law and not preempted by the FAA. To the extent that either party has the right to seek assistance from, file charges with, or participate in investigations and proceedings of any federal, state or local agency, such rights are not precluded by this dispute resolution provision, but this dispute resolution provision does operate as a waiver of any additional personal monetary recovery if related to any Dispute.  In the event of any administrative or judicial action by any agency or third party that adjudicates any Dispute, neither the Campaign, nor you, shall be permitted to receive a double recovery.

 

SECURITY

No data transmission or storage can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure.  As a result, although we take reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that we collect and maintain.
