Effective Date: March 2, 2018
We are currently beta testing Services that comprise, generally, aggregating factual data about political contributions made by businesses, as well as available statements and votes made by politicians, media personalities and candidates for office, so that that You and other consumers may easily factor such political engagement into Your own purchasing and voting decisions.
In advance of releasing Our Services to the general Public through Our Website and downloadable Application, we are engaging with You, the Beta Testers, to further develop Our Services so that such Services may be prepared for use by Our intended audience in the coming months.

· providing a better Website and Application,
· improving our Services, and
· communicating with You, Our Beta Testers, regarding Our products and services with third party products and services.
In particular, use of Our Website and Application as a beta tester will require that You disclose a unique email address and/or individualized login credentials to register an account on Our Website.
We do not collect personally identifiable information e.g., name, e-mail address, contact or similar information unless you choose to provide it to us.
