  • when you provide personal information in connection with your participation in any of the social network accounts that Get Relevant manages through providers like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

What is done with Personal Information

Sponsored petitions. Get Relevant uses the personal information you provide to Get Relevant as part of your selection to register with one of our sponsored petitions or letters in multiple ways.  If you register for a sponsored petition, Get Relevant transfers your information to the organization in which sponsored the petition so they can retain your personal information to provide you with the relevant follow-up correspondence related to the issue that caused you to register.  As part of your decision to register with one of our sponsored petitions there may be a transfer of your information to a third party in order to process your petition or letter to your legislator, public official, or other individuals who are the targets of the petition or letter. You understand that any personal information you provide while registering for a sponsored petition or letter is being provided to a third party organization and that third party organization is not under the control of Get Relevant/Be Heard so submitting such information is at your discretion.

Get Relevant/Be Heard Emails, Newsletters, & Promotions. Get Relevant/Be Heard uses the personal information you provide to Get Relevant as part of your selection to register with one of our sponsored petitions or letters by sending you future communications via email, mail, or phone correspondence related to other issues or promotions that may interest you. When you register for one of our sponsored petitions or letters your personal information is stored with Get Relevant so Get Relevant can contact you in the future about similar petitions, issues, upcoming news, events, and promotions. All follow-up emails sent will contain a link to unsubscribe should you want to be taken off our list.

Disclosures of Personal Information

Get Relevant/Be Heard will only share your Information for the limited purposes provided for in this Privacy Policy. This includes sharing Information (1) to enable third party service providers to assist or facilitate in the services Get Relevant provides to our clients; (2) to comply with applicable laws and regulations or to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information received by Get Relevant, whether or not a response is required by applicable law; (3) to enforce our terms of use or to protect our rights; (4) to protect the safety of members of the public and users of the service; (5) with other Get Relevant/Be Heard Entities and third party marketing partners (including advertisers and publishers) for marketing purposes; (6) with vendors, administrative service providers, technology providers, and carefully selected partners for data validation, enhancement, information verification and suppression services or (7) for any other purpose for which you provide consent.
