3. Use of Information About You
We use your personally-identifiable information to contact you about our programs and initiatives, unless you have opted out of receiving communications from us. We also may use your information we have collected from online surveys to improve your experience on our Website. We use your non-personally identifiable information in a variety of ways, such as to analyze Website traffic (such as aggregated information as to the pages visited by our users), which allows us to improve the design and content of our Website. We may use your non-personally identifiable information by itself or aggregate it with information we have obtained from others to analyze the effectiveness of our programs and initiatives.
We may respond to concerns and questions you have sent to our email address, and may send you promotions and news about our programs and initiatives, we think may be of interest to you. Aside from the foregoing, we will not contact you about any other matters, unless you specifically request it.
4. How And When We Share Information

In connection with our programs and initiatives. If you sign an online petition, for example, we will share the information you provided with the party to whom the petition is directed.
Transfer of Assets. As we continue to develop our organization, we may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires us or all (or substantially all) of our assets, the personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information we have about you will be transferred to and used by this acquiring entity. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, all such information may be considered an asset of ours and as such may be sold or transferred to third parties.

5. California Do Not Track Disclosures:
Certain browsers may offer you the option of providing notice to websites that you do not wish for your online activities to be tracked for preference based advertising purposes (“DNT Notice”). Some browsers are, by default, set to provide a DNT Notice, whether or not that reflects your preference. Providing DNT Notice is often touted as a means to ensure that cookies, web beacons and similar technology are not used for preference based advertising purposes – that is, to restrict the collection of information your online activities for advertising purposes. Since we do not engage in targeted advertising, we do not track your online activity while on our Website for those purposes. Please refer to http://allaboutdnt.com/ for more information on how we respond when we receive a “do not track” signal or other indicator of a consumer’s choice concerning the collection of personally identifiable information about the consumer’s online activities.
6. Your California Privacy Rights:
Residents of the State of California, under certain provisions of the California Civil Code, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed certain personally identifiable information, as defined under California law during the preceding year for third party direct marketing purposes. You are limited to one request per calendar year. In your request, please attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. You may request the information in writing at the Office of Al Gore, 3810 Bedford Ave, Suite 250, Nashville, TN, 37215.
7. Our Commitment to Security
We have implemented administrative, technological and physical security measures we consider reasonable and appropriate to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We cannot, however, guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personally identifiable information. We recommend that you take steps to protect the privacy and security of your personal and payment information and your activity while using the internet.
