privacy policy

This Privacy Policy describes the information that the Defend MI Rights, Inc. (DMR) collects at this website, and how we use, share, and protect the information collected. Your use of this website constitutes your agreement with this Privacy Policy, so please review it carefully. Your use of this website is also subject to the website Terms of Use.

The website server is located in the United States. The privacy and data protection laws in the United States may not be equivalent to such laws in your country of residence. By using this website, you consent to the collection, transfer, storage and processing of information to and in the United States.

INFORMATION COLLECTED AUTOMATICALLY

As a general matter, when you use this website, the hosting company’s server collects basic technical information automatically, which does not allow us to contact you directly. Such information includes your IP address, browser type and operating system, referring domain, clickstream data (e.g., pages viewed and time spent), and access times. We use this information to understand and analyze trends, administer the website, and gather demographic information about users as a whole. This information may be aggregated into group data, which may be shared on an aggregated basis with third parties, but DMR will only share your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US

If you make a financial contribution to DMR through this website, DMR collects your contact information and donation amount, but not any financial information (e.g., credit card number); you will be directed to PayPal (www.paypal.com), a third party payment processor, who will collect, process, and store your credit or debit card information, as well as other information necessary to complete the transaction. PayPal may share your contact information, but not any financial information, with DMR as necessary to confirm donations that have been made. PayPal’s data collection, processing, storage, and use practices are governed by its own privacy policy. 

USE AND SHARING OF INFORMATION COLLECTED

DMR will not disclose your personal information without your consent except (i) to safeguard the website, intellectual property, users, or the rights of third parties, (ii) to investigate violations of our Terms of Use, or (iii) as required by law or in response to a court order or legal request.
