Exchange of Drug Policy Alliance Member Addresses
Like most other non-profit membership organizations, the Drug Policy Alliance obtains the names of potential new members by renting the membership lists or subscriber lists of like-minded organizations and publications. Lists may also be exchanged with other organizations. Whether by exchange or rental, the lists are protected by strict privacy procedures. All exchanges are made on a ""blind"" basis. Lists are never given into the physical possession of the organization which has rented or exchanged them. This safeguard is necessary to prevent one organization from knowing who the members of any other organization are. Instead, usually through a list broker, the list, either in the form of labels or electronic media, is sent to a mail house which prepares the mailing without the mailing organization ever seeing who is on the rented or exchanged list. The only time an organization gets possession of a name from a rented or exchanged list is when the person receiving the invitation to join responds by sending a reply back to the inviting organization. The Drug Policy Alliance will contractually ensure that vendors involved in this process hold all member addresses in strict confidence and do not offer lists to third parties.
We keep confidential any personal information entered during registration, though we may share aggregate information about website usage and traffic patterns, stripped of any personally identifiable information, to third parties to comply with various reporting obligations and for business or marketing purposes. We may also share limited personally identifiable information with third parties on a confidential basis to enable a third party to perform certain tasks, such as maintain an email list or send email alerts and/or newsletters, on our behalf.
