Purpose of Data Collection

EveryAction Inc. d/b/a NGP VAN and EveryAction provides online tools that our customers use to operate aspects of their political campaign and nonprofit advocacy outreach and fundraising efforts. These include tools for customer relationship management, customer service, social engagement, community building, data analytics, internal employee and volunteer management, and platforms for integrating or building online applications, among others. In providing these tools, EveryAction processes data our customers submit to our services or instruct us to process on their behalf. While our customers decide what data to submit, it typically includes information about their constituents, donors, prospects, volunteers, employees, and users of online tools, such as contact information, billing information, and information contained in publicly-available voter files. EveryAction uses a limited number of third-party service providers to assist us in providing our services to our customers, such as database monitoring and other technical operations, assist with the transmission of data, and provide data storage services. These third parties may access, process, or store personal data in the course of providing their services; however, EveryAction maintains contracts with these third parties restricting their access, use, and disclosure of personal data in compliance with our Privacy Shield obligations.
