The STAR Project respects your privacy and the privacy and security of the information you provide. We will make every reasonable effort to ensure the confidentiality and security of that information within our systems. We will not sell or disclose your name, mailing address, telephone number, address, or any other personally identifiable information (“Personal Data”) you provide to any third party except as required by law.
This policy includes the websites starvoting.org and equal.vote, and extends to information collected and used across a number of sites officially associated with the STAR Voting Project. It does not cover voting and election related tools or ballots, either at star.vote or on any voting tool, software, or template linked under Host Election on the starvoting.org website.

These cookies allow us to accurately track our web traffic by letting us know whether and when you’ve visited our sites before, which parts of our sites you’re interacting with, and which sites you’re coming from. It also tells us your IP address, internet browser, and your city.
You May Offer Personal Information by Commenting on Our Sites
Our associated sites may have links to forums and sign-up forms where visitors can share personally-identifying information. It’s up to you whether you choose to share this information.
We Use 3rd Parties to Store and Collect Information from You
We may offer various payment and donation options. Each of those transactions involves a separate company. We may use Stripe and Paypal. Any transaction using a third-party processor will provide a link where you can read their policies.
How We Use Your Information
