We do not sell user data to third parties. When you send messages on behalf of a campaign, we share with that campaign your user id, the actions you’ve participated in, the number of messages you’ve sent and which voters you’ve contacted so far. This ensures that campaigns can measure their progress and use their resources effectively to get as many of their voters to the polls as possible, and that's why you're using Outvote. You can delete your information from our servers at any time by clicking the "unsync contacts" button on the app's settings page.
