When you register, contribute, or take any other action
on our site, we may ask you to give us contact information, including your name,
address, telephone number and/or e-mail address. We may obtain information about
you from outside sources and add it to or combine it with the information we
collect through this site. We use this information to operate this site, send
you news and information to you about DRAGA design’s work, solicit your
participation in programs, events and activities, and obtain and confirm RSVP’s
to events and programs. We use your e-mail address to send such information by
e-mail and may use your telephone number to call you for these purposes.
We will never provide your e-mail address or any of
your personal information to any other person or organization, for any purpose
except for DRAGA design. Submitting
your personal information including e-mail address on this page will sign you
up to receive e-mails from DRAGA design.
For petitions and surveys you've signed or completed, we treat your name, city,
state, and comments as public information -- for example, we may provide compilations
of petitions, with your comments, to the President and legislators, other targets,
or to the press. We will not make your street address publicly available, but
we may transmit it to members of Congress and to the President as part of a petition.
In no such case will we disclose your email address or phone number without your
specific permission. We may also make your comments, along with your first name,
city, and state available to the press and public online.
We will also use your first name to indicate the latest actions taken on this

URLs contained in emails may contain an ID that enables
us to correctly identify the person who takes an action using a web page. We
use these URLs to simplify the process of signing petitions and filling out
surveys. We may occasionally present a shortened URL that references a longer
URL which contains an ID—we do this to simplify the display, to prevent links
from becoming broken when copied, and to ensure compatibility with email programs
which do not handle long URLs. When a shortened URL is displayed in an email,
you will see the full URL in the browser's address bar when you access the page.
