We respect your privacy and your choice not to have your personal information shared with other people. If you should choose to give us your personal information, you decide the amount of information you provide. Your use of our website indicates your acceptance of this Privacy Policy. We urge you to take steps also to protect the privacy of your personal information, such as safeguarding your passwords and logging off of the website after submitting personal information. If you have broadband access to the Internet, we strongly advise you to use a firewall.

Our privacy policy explains the information practices we use at delbeneforcongress.com:

How do we protect your information?

Our website has a number of security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of the information under our control. Our computer systems have restricted access limited only to those persons and organizations necessary to its proper functioning. This access applies to all electronic and physical security measures. Highly sensitive data including credit card information is additionally secured through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. Our servers are located in a locked, secure environment.

How do we use the information you provide?

On registration, sign-up and contribution forms on delbeneforcongress.com, we may ask for your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. We may also ask who, if anyone, referred you to the site so that we can credit those who are organizing volunteer support or fundraising for DelBene for Congress.

We will use your e-mail address to provide you news and information about DelBene for Congress. We may also use your zip code and state to send you e-mail messages about upcoming campaign events or activities in your area.

On occasion, we may also use the information that you provide online to contact you for other purposes or to solicit you for contributions. When you register or sign-up online, we may share your contact information with successor organizations and other like-minded Democratic candidates and organizations, and they may contact you. When you make a contribution to us, we may also exchange your contributor information with successor organizations and other like-minded Democratic candidates and organizations, and they may solicit you (see below for additional information regarding your contributor information). However, we will not sell or exchange your credit card information to any other third party under any circumstances.

When you contribute money online

Federal law requires all candidate committees, such as DelBene for Congress, to maintain a record of the name, mailing address, job title or profession and name of employer or employer’s specific field for each individual who contributes to the committee. This information will be reported on the committee’s campaign finance reports for each contributor who contributes more than $100 in an election cycle. Your information will not be reported if your cumulative contribution is $100 or less for this campaign.

When you sign one of our petitions

When you sign one of our petitions, we treat your name, city, state, and any comments as public information. We may, for example, provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to national leaders, without disclosing email addresses. We may also make comments available to the press and public online, identifying only your city and state.
