If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from our email list, you may do so here. The Site is directed to users in the United States only.
The Centrist Project will send you updates by e-mail. You can remove yourself from the mailing list at any time. You may be contacted by phone to coordinate your participation in events.
We do not share the information you’ve given us with unaffiliated groups without your explicit permission. We may share some of your personal information with the following affiliated groups:
- The Centrist Project Voice, our PAC.
- Affiliated Third Parties – for example, our database administrators – for the sole purpose of helping Us do our work. These groups do not share your personal information or use it for any purpose other than as instructed by Us.
- Third Party Administrators, such as organizations we engage to facilitate large distribution of messages. The content of these emails or mail will be from The Centrist Project and these third parties do not have direct access to your personally identifiable information.
Under circumstances where we determine that members may be misusing our systems for malicious purposes (for example, using the numbers we provide to make harassing phone calls), such activities may be reported to law enforcement agencies. In such cases, The Centrist Project may release personally identifiable information, including name and address, to those agencies.
Sharing of Information Between The Centrist Project and The Centrist Project Voice
The Centrist Project is a 501(c)(4) organization which primarily focuses on creating a political, educational and advocacy home for moderate Americans. The Centrist Project Voice is a federal political committee that primarily helps members elect candidates who reflect our Centrist Principles through a variety of activities aimed at influencing the outcome of the next election. The Centrist Project Voice is a Separate Segregated Fund (SSF) of The Centrist Project. They’re both interested in promoting your participation in the democratic process. As such, when you provide your personal information to The Centrist Project, we share it with The Centrist Project Voice, with the exception of credit card information with which you may provide us in order to make a donation. Please see the Financial Donations section, below, for more information about donations.
Petitions and Surveys
For petitions and surveys you’ve signed or completed, we treat your name, city, state, and comments as public information – for example, we may provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to the President and legislators, other targets, or to the press. We will not make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit it to members of Congress and to the President as part of a petition. This is a standard industry practice in such situations. In no such case will we disclose your email address or phone number without your permission. We may also make your comments, along with your first name, city, and state available to the press and public online.
If you choose to make a donation to The Centrist Project or The Centrist Project Voice or a candidate via The Centrist Project Voice, your credit card information will be used only for this transaction through our secure online payment system. The Centrist Project and The Centrist Project Voice do not retain credit card information. All contributions are final and cannot be rescinded, cancelled or refunded once contributed.
In addition, when you contribute to our PAC or to a candidate, we are required to collect certain information: your name, address, employer, and occupation. This information may be reported to the Federal Election Commission (depending on the level of contribution you make) and, if reported to the FEC, will be publicly disclosed via its web site.
The Centrist Project does not solicit personally identifying information from children. Visitors who are under 13 years of age should ask their parent or legal guardian for assistance when using the Site and should not submit any personally identifying information to the Site. For example, visitors under 13 years of age should not make donations.
Some parts of the Site are password-protected. If you check “Remember Me” upon log-in, we will use a cookie (cookies reside on your computer and are under the control of your browser) to enable you to return to password-protected areas of the website without having to re-enter your password. If you wish to disable these cookies, the help portion of the tool bar on most browsers will tell you how do that.

URLs contained in emails may contain an ID that enables us to correctly identify the person who takes an action using a web page. We use these URLs to simplify the process of signing petitions and filling out surveys. We may occasionally present a shortened URL that references a longer URL which contains an id—we do this to simplify the display, to prevent links from becoming broken when copied, and to ensure compatibility with email programs which do not handle long URLs. When a shortened URL is displayed in an email, you will see the full URL in the browser’s address bar when you access the page.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may share aggregate information about who and where our members are with third parties including, but not limited to, legislators, partner organizations, and political campaigns. This information will be disclosed in aggregate form only and will not, under any circumstances, contain personally identifiable information. Examples of this type of aggregate data include, but are not limited to, how many members live in a town, or how many new people from a particular state have joined this year. We may also use such aggregate information to analyze trends, administer the Site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Links to Other Websites
The Centrist Project may revise or amend this policy at any time at our sole discretion. If we make any substantive changes in the way we collect or use personally identifying information provided by users, we will post a prominent announcement on our website home page and post the changes on this page. We will never change our policies and practices to make them less protective of user information collected prior to the effective date of any changes without the consent of affected users. We encourage users to visit this page periodically to review our current policy.
