Privacy Policy

Last updated on April 20, 2015.

What Information We Collect

We collect aggregate data about the traffic on our web site. For example, we track

  • the number of visitors to each page,
  • the number of visitors requesting information for a particular member of Congress or advocacy group.

The aggregate information is anonymous. It does NOT allow anyone to identify you or your computer.

When you purchase something on-line from VIS such as a membership, the purchase transaction is handled by PayPal, our authorized sales agent.  After the transaction is completed, we receive from PayPal your name and contact information. We are NOT given your credit card information.

NOTE: VIS does not make any statements regarding PayPal's privacy policy except that we will immediately cease to use their services if we have any reason to believe they do not treat our visitors' personal data as completely confidential. 

How We Use Information We Collect

We do NOT share our visitors' personal information or e-mail addresses with any third party without the visitors' prior permission.

We reserve the right to use the aggregate data described above as we see fit.

We use the contact information given to us by our visitors (directly or through our payment processors) to deliver periodic notices about VIS and our services.

To unsubscribe from our mailing lists, please send a message including the name and e-mail address that we use to contact you to


We use cookies to improve the functionality of our Web site such as "remembering" user settings (e.g. your VIS Member ID) from the previous visit or within the same session. Some parts of our site will function properly even when cookies are disabled. Other areas, such as the Group Unity Scores utility, require that cookies be supported and enabled in your browser.

If you have any question about this privacy policy, contact VIS at
