Use of "Cookies":
The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund transmits your data using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption.

We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our Web site that is only accessible by specified employees, elected board members, and board appointed volunteers of the League Women Voters of California Education Fund. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our content, we ask them the friend's name and email address.

The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one email.
