Commitment to Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available via link on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on this website. On some pages, you can make requests, vote, make comments, and post material. The types of personal information collected at these pages are:

How the Information Is Used

We use the information you provide about yourself when placing a request, voting, or commenting only to fulfill the request, tally the vote, or respond to the comment. We do not share this information with outside parties except in summary form and to the extent necessary to fulfill the request, tally the vote, or respond to the comment.

We offer the ability to post commentary and opinions on this site. Identifying information you provide to us will not be disclosed.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

You can register with our website if you would like to receive updates on our new services. The information you submit will not be used for any other purpose.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website, to share with advertisers, and to present voting results. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, or tell visitors that M number of people in Texas voted against a proposed question, but we will not disclose anything that could be used to identify the individuals represented by those numbers.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above. Notwithstanding all of these policies, it is our policy to fully cooperate with official requests for information from courts and law enforcement agencies. Your use of this service indicates your consent to any such official request we might receive. You may or may not receive notice if we receive such an official request or respond to such a request.

Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. However, we do not guarantee the security of any of the data we have collected online.

Our Commitment To Children's Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.

How to Access or Correct Information

You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by sending an email request to corrections@firstgrain.com, including your phone number and address. Once we receive such a request, we verify the authenticity of the identity of the individual prior to replying. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information.

You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error.

To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
