Privacy Policy

Stop Greg Abbott Privacy Policy

We at the Planned Parenthood Texas Votes (PPTV) PAC want the Stop Greg Abbott site to be a safe and private place for users. Stop Greg Abbott will do its part by not requiring you to register or provide any information at all to use this website. You can do your part by reading this policy and taking the steps outlined below. We will also update this privacy policy as we deem necessary, so be sure to re-read it from time to time. By submitting information to us, you agree that Stop Greg Abbott may use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

To register with our site or to become an associate member of PPTV PAC, you will have to provide some personal information, such as your name, e-mail address and zip code. In addition to the required information for membership, you will be given the opportunity to provide additional information. If you do submit personal information to us, we will use that information for the purposes for which it was submitted. We may also use your information in other ways, such as to contact you about other Planned Parenthood activities and/or fundraising campaigns or as otherwise disclosed to you at the point of collection, and we may share your information with other organizations.

a. If you provide your name, e-mail address and zip code by taking an action, we will have a record of your information.

b. If you choose to register with, donate to, or become an associate member of the Planned Parenthood Texas Votes PAC, your information will be added to our list and database.

c. If you register with our site or donate to or become an associate member of PPTV PAC, your information will also be shared with the Planned Parenthood Action Network, and you will receive informational updates and action alerts on women’s health issues. The Action Network is an electronic network, and therefore we need an e-mail address to contact you. If we are asking you to contact your elected officials, or candidates from a particular area, we also need your full postal address in order for our systems to match you to the correct state and federal districts, thereby ensuring that you are primarily sending messages to your designated elected officials or the appropriate candidates.

d. We will receive and retain a record of any other information you choose to provide, such as optional information you submit.

e. We use third-party vendors to provide services on this site and in our offline business operations. The information that you submit on this site may be provided to those vendors on a confidential basis so that those vendors can provide services (such as maintaining our membership database, sending e-mail messages to members, conducting fundraising campaigns, or processing credit card transactions) on our behalf.

If you choose to make an online donation to PPTV PAC through the Stop Greg Abbott campaign, you will have to provide your credit card billing information. As this information is collected and transferred over the Internet to our secure server, it is encrypted using SSL, the industry standard security technology that is designed to protect sensitive information. Our donation pages display the Verisign Secure Site Seal to assure you that our website is authentic and that all transactions are secured by SSL encryption. If you are making a one-time donation, the credit card information that you provide at the time of donation is stored only for the duration of the transaction. If you are making a recurring donation, we encrypt your credit card number and store it in our secure database. Your credit card information is used only to process donations and will not be used for any other purposes.

Any website you enter, including automatically collects and stores some information about your computer and your visit: your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address (this is not your e-mail address); the domain from which you access the Internet (e.g., “” or “”); the name, version, and specifications of your computer and your computer’s operating system; the Internet address of the website, if any, from which you came to our site; the date and time you arrived at our site and how long you spent on the site; and which pages you visited.

If you just browse through our site, read pages, or download information, the above information is all that we collect. We use this information to formulate statistics (possibly with the help of outside experts) that show the number of visitors to the different sections of our site and to help us make our site more useful to visitors. For example, we use the browser information to help us design our website so that as many people as possible will be able to view the pages correctly. These statistics do not reveal personal information.

If you choose to provide information by registering with, donating to, or becoming an associate member of PPTV PAC, we may place a small text file, known as a “cookie,” on your hard drive so that you will be recognized as you move around the PPTV PAC pages. Unless you opt-in to use a “persistent cookie,” the information is only captured for the duration of your browser session through the use of a “session cookie.” For example, if you join Stop Greg Abbott and then navigate through different pages of the Stop Greg Abbott site, the cookie will maintain the information you entered when you filled out the Sign Up page. As you move through the site, any fields requiring information about you that has already been captured will be pre-populated. However, once you close your browser window, the session cookie times out. If you open a new browser window and return to the Stop Greg Abbott pages, your personal information fields will not be pre-populated.

In certain circumstances, you may be given the option to turn on a “persistent” or “permanent cookie” on your computer (e.g., “Would you like us to remember your password?” messages). A persistent cookie will remember your user name and password and will not time out at the end of your browser session.

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. The security measures used on this site include, but are not limited to, industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, Versign certificates, firewalls, and internal policies to maintain the security of stored data.

When you register with, donate to, or become an associate member of PPTV PAC through this website, you will have a personal subscription management page, where you will be able to edit your personal information and recurring donation information, as well as review your messaging, advocacy, and donation records. Access to your personal subscription management page is controlled to protect the privacy of your data — our website requires that you log on with your e-mail address and personal password to access your personal subscription management page. The log-on process may be automated if you choose to accept the placement of a persistent cookie on your PC. See Use of Cookies and Your Help Is Needed for more information on persistent cookies.

Remember, many breaches of security occur when users are not vigilant in protecting their own information. The next section of our privacy policy suggests some actions you can take to help control the security of your personal information.

Although we do our best to protect your privacy on we need your help.

a. You have control over your own privacy. Think carefully before providing any personal or financial information.

b. Although this site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control, no e-mail is completely secure against interception. If you are worried because your communication is very sensitive, do not send it.

c. Remember that we cannot protect your privacy once you leave our site, such as by “hyperlink.” So when you visit other websites, check each one’s privacy policy yourself, and be careful about the information you offer up.

d. You should be aware that we use personalization measures designed to make your site experience more enjoyable (i.e., personalized links in e-mail that allow pre-population of data fields with certain personal information). We need your help to protect the information embedded in these links. You should always keep your e-mail account information secure and not allow others to access your e-mail account.

e. In addition, you should only forward PPTV PAC messages to others through the “Tell a Friend” buttons provided within the e-mail. When you use your e-mail system’s forwarding capabilities (i.e., not “Tell a Friend”), others may be able to take actions in your name and/or access your personal information.

f. You may be given the option to turn on a persistent cookie on your computer (see Use of Cookies above). Remember that once you have set a persistent cookie, anyone can access your personal information by using your computer.
