Privacy FAQ

Q: Who does Stratos share my information with?

A: Stratos does not sell or share your personal information with third parties.

If you record an interaction with one of your contacts on behalf of a campaign, we let that campaign know who you contacted so they can follow up with additional outreach efforts to reinforce your work. (Multiple impressions leading up to election day boost voter turnout more than isolated interactions.)


Q: How do I delete my account and contact data from Stratos?

How to delete your account.

A: You can delete your data anytime. While signed into Stratos, click the top-right “Settings” icon, click “Delete Account”, and confirm your choice.


Q: When I sign in with Google, what information can Stratos access?

A: Stratos imports your Google contacts (you can view yours at contacts.google.com), containing names, email addresses, phone numbers, etc. of people you’ve emailed or added from a Google-connected phone.


Q: Can Stratos read my emails or see who I’ve emailed/texted?

A: No.


Q: Can other users or campaigns see who my contacts are?

A: No. Users only see their own contacts. Campaign staff can see how many contacts you have and who you’ve submitted interactions for, but not your contacts list.


Q: Who does Stratos share my information with?

A: Stratos doesn’t sell or share your personal information with third parties without your consent.

If you record an interaction with one of your contacts on behalf of a campaign, we let that campaign know so they can follow up with additional outreach efforts to reinforce your work. (Multiple impressions leading up to election day boost voter turnout more than isolated interactions.)


Q: How does Stratos use my contact data?

A: We compare your contacts with other users’ contacts to build a map of your social network. We stitch together our users’ social networks to predict which potential voters would be most open to talking with you.


Q: Who’s behind Stratos?

A: Get to know us and our values! We are progressively aligned entrepreneurs, software engineers, and political scientists. Stratos is self-funded by its founders, meaning we haven’t taken money from any political party or PAC ahead of the 2020 election. Stratos is free for volunteers, and earns its money by charging campaigns to coordinate their specific outreach.
