El Paso Corruption Privacy Policy

El Paso News, Inc., the provider of El Paso Corruption Archive, believes strongly in the internet as a vital tool for education, advocacy and information exchange. In order for the tool to be used effectively, any information provided online must be used appropriately and responsibly. To protect your online privacy we have developed the following privacy policy.

Personally Identifiable Information

We will not collect any personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, email address, credit card or other information, unless we explicitly request the information and you choose to provide it to us. We will use your personal information to send you email alerts, respond to questions or requests and process online donations. You can always "opt-out" of our online communications to keep from receiving unwanted emails.

It is the policy of El Paso News, Inc. to not sell or trade names or other personal data that we collect on our website, nor do we maintain any credit card information. Credit card donations through our website are processed by Paypal, which is committed to providing safe, secure and private online transactions. For further details about their privacy practices, please consult their Privacy and security policy directly.

When you make a donation to us through the Donate button on the website, Paypal shares your contact information (name, address and email address) with us. We maintain this information in our database of supporters in order to keep you abreast of our future work and related issues that may be of interest to you. We will not contact you unless it is to keep you abreast of developments with the project.
