Who we are
Our website address is: http://surveillancereform.org.
We are a coalition of like-minded residents and organizations in the Portland, Oregon area, led by the efforts of PDX Privacy. A nonprofit committed to protecting the personal right to privacy.
We have done our best to protect your privacy. But there are a few things you should know about.
If anyone has the time to assist us, we would love to know what kinds of privacy implications there could be and would love to explore alternatives.
We want to make sure you are aware of any possible privacy implications that our website might have.

Who we share your data with
Your data stays local to SurveillanceReform.org, except for your name, city, state and zip code if you sign a petition, and any comments you choose to add through the additional comments form.
Your name, city, state, zip code and any optional comments are shared with the City of Portland, in public support of any text you sign.
How long we retain your data at our website
If you sign a petition, your data will be saved temporarily so that we can authenticate you as a real person.
You consent to having your name, city, state and zipcode made public and added to the public record in support of the text.
We will not present your email address on the petition, but we retain your email address for 30 days, to confirm your existence, and in case of any inquiries made about your legitimate existence.
You consent that we may contact you, in the event that an inquiry of this kind made about you.
If you want us to be in touch with you, you can opt-in to being in contact. We would love to get to know you better.
However, we will completely delete your email address and locally-saved data to the best of our ability, unless you tell us not to by opting-in to be in touch.
You understand that contact may come from PDX Privacy or SurveillanceReform.org.
We will not share your information with any other organizations, unless you specifically request that we do so.
How long the city retains your data
You consent to having your name, city and zip code submitted into the permanent public record in support of any petition text you choose to sign electronically here at the website. You also consent to having any “comments” added to the petition submitted into the public record in association with your name.
We do not submit email addresses into the public record.
Public records last indefinitely as public information.
How long does SurveillanceReform.org retain your data
We at surveillancereform.org only retain your data for 30 days. We then delete it to the best of our ability, unless you opt-in to being in touch.
Once you opt-in, you may opt out again by sending us an email to email@example.com, or using any unsubscribe options in any newsletters sent to you.

If WordPress comments become enabled, and If you leave a WordPress comment on the website, the comment and its metadata would be retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
