We collect two types of user data: (1) technical data that is automatically collected from all visitors to the Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform Site (“Automatically Collected Data”); and (2) data that you voluntarily submit to us (described below under “Voluntarily Submitted Data”).

Automatically Collected Data. We automatically collect and store Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses and domain names of the originating visitor’s computer on our server and may know some information you have previously provided through cookies. (See the section on “Cookies” below for more information.) We also track the number and frequency of hits per page, as well as length of website visit, using IP addresses and/or session cookies. In addition, if you come to the Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform Site from a website link, we may also identify the source of that link.

Voluntarily Submitted Data. We may collect and store Voluntarily Submitted Data, including personal data, that you voluntarily provide, such as your name and postal address, phone number, e–mail address, and similar information, and transactional information, such as giving and action–taking history, when you participate in certain activities on the Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform Site, including (but not limited to) when you:

  • sign up for our Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform e–mail networks;

Other Collected Data. We also may collect data concerning your use of the Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform Site such as by using an embedded image in an email in order to track whether you open our email communications and using a URL contained in an email we send to you that enables us to identify that you have taken an action using a webpage. We may use this data for a number of reasons, including taking account of your interests in our work so that you do not have to miss the opportunity for us to inform you about, and offer you the chance to take action concerning the Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform issues you care about most, and in order to simplify the process of your signing petitions and filling out surveys.
