Historically, E-Democracy.Org has limited its collection of information to a minimal set of items widely available as public information. We also strongly believe in our forums that participants have a right to know who else is posting or registered such that they can post. We do not require people to register to simply view our main Issues Forums, so such readers have the option to stay private.<br /> <br /> In St. Paul, due to concerns about the use of false identities, they started to collect address and telephone information for '''only those wishing to post''' with the promise that it would be kept private and only used internally if identity verification was required.<br /> <br /> With forums in the UK and New Zealand, we are also now operating in countries with more stringent privacy laws.<br /> <br /> This first draft is an attempt to layout a starting point for development of a privacy and publicness policy that reflects our values. This draft will be submitted to our [[Rules committee]] for eventual adoption by our [[Board]].<br /> <br /> The draft:<br /> <br /> '''E-Democracy.Org Privacy and Public Life Policy'''<br /> <br /> Participation in E-Democracy.Org is fundamentally about public life.<br /> <br /> E-Democracy does not sell, rent, or exchange private information on individuals using our website, forums, and services with third-parties. To the greatest extent possible under law, we forbid use of any public information optionally disclosed by individuals on our site for commercial marketing purposes.<br /> <br /> We limit the information we require from forum registration to real names, community, country and at least one e-mail address. This helps protect your exposure online. E-mail addresses are not published on the website. Only those who choose to post are sharing their e-mail with other participants via e-mail. <br /> <br /> Optional member profiles have public fields that may be accessible to others. We hide e-mail addresses, but do allow a &quot;request contact&quot; feature to ensure participation equality for web-based participants. E-mail participants may reply privately easily.<br /> <br /> Any and all information fields collected by specific forums (for identity verification assistance on posters), local e-democracy committees/chapters, or for use in other E-Democracy.Org owned and operated services will clearly be labeled private and not disclosed publicly. By default, as a &quot;public life&quot; initiative information fields not clearly labeled private should be considered public, viewable, and potentially accessible. Specific non-forum services, such as surveys requesting demographic information or online donation systems must have their own overarching privacy guarantees stated clearly on that service where information is submitted.</div> Admin
