Protecting your privacy is important to us. We are committed to keeping your personal information confidential.

What information does Flex Your Rights (Flex) collect?

Flex collects and uses personal information to provide individuals with news and information regarding Flex. In addition, we use personal information (e.g. e-mail address, city, and state) to keep e-mail subscribers up-to-date on the latest news and information we think they’d like to hear about.

We do not collect personal information from our visitors other than what is supplied to us on a voluntary basis.

How will Flex use the information I provide?

We will always explain the extent of its use at the time you are asked to provide personal information. If you do not want this information to be collected or used by us for these purposes, you can simply “opt out”. Under certain circumstances, opting out may prevent your participation in activities for which personal information is needed, such as subscription to our e-mail news list.

Does Flex rent, share, sell or trade my information?

Flex does not rent, share, sell or trade supporter e-mail addresses and telephone numbers. In addition, we do not rent, share, sell or trade information about what activities or donations supporters have undertaken on our website.

Flex might occasionally allow other reputable civil liberties organizations to send mail to individuals on its lists. In these cases, lists containing only names and addresses (no contribution data or other personal information) are delivered to a third-party mailing house for one-time use for that organization’s mailing. To request that we never allow your contact information to be used even in this secure manner, please contact us at If possible, please include full name, postal address, phone number, and the e-mail address at which you receive messages from Flex.

How do I know my credit card information is secure?

Flex uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all Web pages where donations are submitted. This software encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name and address, so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet.

You can view our security certificate by clicking on the VeriSign logo at the bottom of all our donation, account and renewal pages.

Your personal information will only be handled by Flex employees, who are knowledgeable of all rules and policies regarding securely handling all information. They will protect your personal information in accordance with Flex’s Privacy Policy.
