Penny4NASA will send you updates by e-mail. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from our email list, you may do so by sending us an Unsubscribe request, to take you off of the mailing list.
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:
- 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 will be from Penny4NASA and these third parties do not have direct access to your personally identifiable information.
In addition, with your explicit permission, we pass along certain parts of your information to the following groups (as is standard practice):
- US leaders, news publications, and the general public when you sign petitions or complete surveys.
When you give Penny4NASA personal information, we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Penny4NASA cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
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, Penny4NASA may release personally identifiable information, including name and address, to those agencies.
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 US leaders or to the press. We will not make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit it to the designated leaders 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. Penny4NASA is not responsible for the content or use of your email address by these US leaders or press.

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.
