Privacy Policy

Who We Are

Our website address is: https://www.timcoxforvirginia.com.

This Privacy Policy governs how Tim Cox for Virginia (TCFV) collects, uses, retains, and discloses data collected on timcoxforvirginia.com (hereafter called the “website” or “site”). This policy applies to the website, products, and services offered by TCFV.

What Data We Collect

When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the comment data, the visitor’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, and the browser user agent string. This data helps to detect spam. We also collect the date and time the visitor accessed the site.

We use this information to help determine the number of visitors to the site and to ensure site functionality. This information is not used to identify individuals, except for site security or legal purposes. Unless you choose to provide Personally Identifiable Information (PII), we do not collect it.

Other Data We Collect

If you choose to provide PII, we will collect and may retain your name, address, email, phone number, and other information you provide. This information is used to try to fulfill your request and to provide you with additional information if needed. You may opt out of future communications by writing us at contact@timcoxforvirginia.com.

We may share your information with third parties as needed. If you request information or services, we may disclose your information to third parties to fulfill your request. If you specify you do not want us to disclose data to third parties, we will honor your request. However, if you do not provide this information, it may be impossible to fulfill your request.

Data required by law enforcement will be provided to them.

Your Data Rights

If you leave comments or information on the site, you can request an exported file of your data. You can also request to have your personal data erased. However, this does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

How Long We Retain Data

Information visitors provide may be kept indefinitely.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data included. Visitors to the site can download and extract location data from images on the website.

Contact Forms and Cookies

Our website uses “cookies” to enhance user experience. Typically, your browser collects cookies, but you may disable cookies or be alerted when cookies are kept. If you do so, some parts of our website may not function properly.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to gather site data. Google Analytics collects how often users visit the site, what pages they visit, when they visit, and what other sites they visited before navigating to our site. We use this information to improve the site. Google Analytics collects your IP address when you visit the site but not your PII.

We do not combine Google Analytics data with PII. Google Analytics puts a cookie on your browser to identify you as a unique user when you visit the site. This cookie can only be used by Google. Google’s ability to use and share your information when you visit the site is restricted by Google Analytics’ Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google from recognizing you on this site by disabling cookies in your browser.

Links to Other Websites

Our website contains links to other websites. Information you provide on linked sites is provided directly to that party and is subject to their privacy policy. This policy does not apply to linked sites. We are not responsible for the content or security of other sites.

How We Protect Your Data

We use industry standard safeguards to protect your information from loss, theft, misuse, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware, however, that, despite reasonable efforts, no security measures are perfect. No method of data transmission can be guaranteed against interception or other potential types of misuse.

All sensitive information—such as credit card data—is encrypted and transmitted securely. You can verify this security by seeing the closed lock icon in the top left of your browser and/or the “https” at the beginning of our URL address.

In addition to protecting your data online, we also protect your data offline. Only employees with a specific need to know are granted access to PII. The computers and servers in which we store PII are kept in a secure environment.

Compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act

This site is in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). We do not knowingly collect or retain information from anyone under 13 years old. Our website, information, and services are directed to people at least 13 years of age or older.

Further, if you wish to contribute or donate to TCFV, you must abide by these rules:
