Below is a description of what we collect and how it is handled.
ZIP codes are used purely for animating calls on the Live Call Map. We do not verify ZIP codes in any way, so while we encourage users to use their own for accuracy, any valid ZIP code may be chosen! If you're an international user, we suggest you use "00000".
Email addresses and ZIP codes will never be shared with any external entity without first acquiring users' consent via email. Previously, for instance, we've shared consenting users' email addresses with third party benefactors to coordinate prize delivery.
Cookies are used for session-tracking and to expose usernames to our call-counting browser extensions. Server logs of IP addresses used to access the site are maintained to investigate and address instances of site abuse.
From all of us on the team, thank you so much for your time and dedication to advancing the progressive cause. If you have any suggestions, concerns, or specific questions, please don't hesitate to contact us! We look forward to working with you in the coming contests!
