Protecting privacy has three forms at coopballot.com. First is the process that we have developed for secure e-voting. Second, is how we handle sensitive voter information that we have been entrusted with to make the elections authenticated and verifiable. And third, is how we handle customer information.
Customer Supplied Voter Information
To make your election successful and secure, you trust coopballot.com with certain information. The company maintains strict information privacy policies and uses state of the art technologies to safeguard voter information from unauthorized intrusions.
The key to secure e-voting is to authenticate the voter and this can be handled in three ways, (1) something they know (e.g., Date of birth, Member Number, etc.), (2) something they are given (e.g., a Voter Encrypted Registration Number), or (3) something they are (e.g., biometric). The first two methods are used on coopballot.com. Depending on the type of election, we will be supplied with a registered voter list and corresponding unique voter information. The following section states our policy regarding this supplied voter information.
