What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We aggregate information on what pages visitors access, and information volunteered by the visitor (such as survey information, e-mail and other addresses and other personal information voluntarily provided by visitors).

The information we collect is used to improve the content of our website, to notify visitors about updates to our website, and alert visitors about issues and opportunities related to our work. The information collected is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes. All personal information is stored on a secure server with password protection.

Visitors under the age of 13 (US) or 16 (EU & elsewhere), must ask their parent/guardian for consent before submitting the youth’s personal information to this site. If we have reason to believe that someone is under-age and we have collected their personal information without proper consent, we will delete that information within a reasonable period of time.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Data provided by users in contact forms is stored on a password protected server. 350PDX uses third-party service providers for communication and contact management.

Financial Transactions

To process a charitable contribution or product purchase, it is necessary for 350PDX to gather the donor’s name, email address, mailing address, phone, and credit card information. This data is used to verify identity and execute the financial transaction. Additionally, phone number and email address information may be used to contact visitors if there is a problem with the transaction.

350PDX may use service providers (such as merchant banks and ecommerce integrators) for the express purpose of conducting financial transactions. It is important to note that credit card numbers are used only at the time of the transaction, and are not stored following the conclusion of the transaction unless a transaction is selected that occurs on a regular basis. For transactions that recur, credit card information is stored in an encrypted format.

350PDX payment processing service providers include PayPal, Democracy Engine, and Nationbuilder.
