Privacy Policy and Mandate Media are committed to respecting and protecting your privacy and the information you share with us. This document outlines the ways in which we use information transmitted to us.


The purpose of this website is to share information about and encourage individuals to take action on important political issues. The targets of these actions are American elected officials and policy makers. Therefore, the petitions on this website are open only to residents of the United States with a valid U.S. zip code.

Use of Information

We use information collected from you for four general purposes: to personalize your online experience when using this web site, to send you personalized correspondence, to fulfill your requests for certain information, and to process any data you send to us.

When you sign one of our petitions, pledges, or other endorsement-type forms, we treat your name, city, state, and any comments as public information. We may, for example, disclose this information to public officials, the press, and/or the general public. In accordance with our general policy, we may also use the information that you provide to contact you for other purposes or to solicit contributions. We may share your email address and other contact information with other organizations that share similar goals and objectives, and they may contact or solicit you. By signing a petition or pledge sponsored by multiple organizations, you are opting in to and may receive emails from one or more of the sponsors of the petition or pledge. (You may, of course, unsubscribe at any time.)

In partnership with third parties, we use various technologies to learn how visitors are using our websites, improve our websites, and customize your experience. This may include sending cookies (small data files) to your computer or mobile device.
