TCJE Website and Social Network Privacy Policy

Your Privacy Matters
The Texas Center for Justice and Equity values our users’ privacy, especially given our work in complex and sensitive policy areas. By using this website, you agree to the terms of our privacy policy. We encourage you to read this policy carefully and revisit this page each time you access the TCJE website.

Collection of Personal Information
By visiting the TCJE site and @TexasCJE Facebook page, you agree to the collection of basic personal data including your general location, type of technology used to access the site, and basic demographic information. This information may be available to us as aggregate analytic data.

How Your Information May Be Used
TCJE will never sell your information to third-party vendors. We use this data to make general evaluations about our audience and to add you to our organizational contact list when you submit your contact information by signing up for our emails, signing up for blog alerts, or submitting your information to read our reports. Our site uses your information to create cookies (defined below).

We also share data with Bonterra Tech, a partner which we use to create and manage fundraising and informational email campaigns.

A website cookie is a small text file that stores information about your website usage. Cookies are designed to improve your browsing experience by remembering information like login details, but they are also a form of information storage. TCJE uses cookies, including to autofill information on pages like our email signup form and our donation page.

Links to External Sites
Many pages on the TCJE website, including but not limited to our resource center and news pages, link to external web pages. TCJE is not responsible for the content on those pages, nor do we accept any responsibility for their use of your information.

For EU Citizens
New legislation in the European Union has created specialized rules for EU citizens. Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) you are guaranteed the following rights:

  1. Right to be informed about how your data will be used before it is collected
  2. Right to access information about how your data is used after it is collected
  3. Right to correct your data
  4. Right to erase your personal data
  5. Right to restrict your data from being processed
  6. Right to move, transfer, or copy personal data
  7. Right to object to your data being processed
  8. Right to demand human intervention, rather than automated decision-making

Since TCJE’s website is housed in the United States, by using our site you agree that your data will be collected outside of the EU.
