Privacy Policy

NGP VAN respects the privacy of all users of our MiniVan application. NGP VAN is committed to honoring and protecting the privacy of our clients' lists and data, as well as the personal information of their donors, supporters, volunteers, and Web site visitors. This document outlines our privacy policy and explains what we do with the information collected during the use of MiniVAN.

What data do we collect and how do we use it?

We automatically log information about you and your mobile device when you access our Services. For example, when using the MiniVAN application, we log your mobile device operating system name and version, manufacturer and model, browser type, browser language, screen resolution, pages you viewed, access times and information about your use of and actions on our Services. We collect this information about you using cookies.

IP Addresses

Our crash logging system (Crashlytics) uses IP to differentiate device crashes and track how many individual devices are experiencing a given crash. Our analytics platform (Firebase / Google) uses IP to determine general area for reporting usage by country, state, etc.

Location Data

If permission is granted, we log device locations to ensure canvassers are near the doors they are claiming to be canvassing. These locations are attached to the canvass records.

  • with your consent, to send you marketing e-mails about upcoming promotions, and other news, including information about products and services offered by us and our affiliates.

Information Sharing

We may share your personal data as follows:

  • Our Third Party Service Providers. We may share your personal data with our third party service providers who provide services such as data analysis, payment processing, information technology and related infrastructure provision, customer service, email delivery, auditing and other similar services. These third parties are only permitted to use your personal data to the extent necessary to enable them to provide their services to us. They are required to follow our express instructions and to comply with appropriate security measures to protect your personal data.
  • Other Disclosures. We may share personal data as we believe necessary or appropriate: (a) to comply with applicable laws; (b) to comply with lawful requests and legal process, including to respond to requests from public and government authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements; (c) to enforce our Policy; and (d) to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property, and/or that of you or others.

Does NGP VAN disclose any of your personal information?

NGP VAN does not sell, trade, exchange, or reveal individual information to any third parties other than as described above.

The use of your personal information by the organization to which you submitted it is governed by that organization's privacy policy. If you have questions about an organization's privacy policy and how they use your information, you should contact them directly.

Will NGP VAN use its clients' data for direct mailings to you?

NGP VAN does not contact the people in its clients' databases for any purpose. You may, however, receive e-mail sent through our e-mail servers from the organization to which you contributed or with which you signed up. One of the services we provide to our clients enables them to send e-mail to their donors, supporters, and volunteers through our servers.

Data Retention and Request for Deletion

We will retain your personal data until you exercise your right to be forgotten or your right to erasure, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (for example for regulatory purposes).

  • Opt-out. You may contact us anytime to opt-out of: (i) direct marketing communications; (ii) automated decision-making and/or profiling; (iii) our collection of sensitive personal data; (iv) any new processing of your personal data that we may carry out beyond the original purpose; or (v) the transfer of your personal data outside the EEA. Please note that your use of some of the Services may be ineffective upon opt-out.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at NGPVan Support. In your request, please make clear: (i) what personal data is concerned; and (ii) which of the above rights you would like to enforce. For your protection, we may only implement requests with respect to the personal data associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable and in any event, within one month of your request.
