What information we collect, and how we use it
When you sign up to volunteer, we ask for your contact information as well as information about what types of tasks you are interested in or available to do. We use this information to determine the level of possible volunteer support in your area and contact possible volunteers to support the campaign.
When you sign up for our email list, we ask for your last name (optional), email address and zip code. This information is used to send you email updates about the campaign, including information specifically geared to the area where you live.
When you contribute money online, we collect information possibly needed to comply with federal law, as well as information needed to verify your credit card transaction. We will be required to report to the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) the name, mailing address, occupation, and employer of individuals who contribute more than $200. This information is also required for contributions submitted for matching funds. You can find out more about how this information is used by visiting the FEC website. Your credit card number and other information will be provided to the financial institution handling the transaction. Online contributions are processed by PaySimple.
If you contribute by mail, by phone, or online, we may use the information you provided to contact you about future activities or solicit further contributions.
