Privacy Policy

Overview

At The Us Campaign Fund, we put  forth every effort to ensure the privacy and security of information you share with us online. Our privacy policy explains the information practices we use at www.TheUsCampaign.com. We also urge you to take appropriate steps 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.

Website Security

The Us Campaign takes reasonable measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

How Do We Use the Information You Provide?

On registration, sign-up and contribution forms on www.TheUsCampaign.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 The Us Campaign Fund. We will use your e-mail address to provide you news and information about The Us Campaign Fund. We may also use your zip code and state to send you e-mail messages about upcoming 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 contributions. When you register or sign-up online, we may share your contact information with successor organizations and other like-minded 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 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. In addition, we may release personal information when we believe it is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena), to protect our rights or property, or to protect our donors and supporters from fraudulent, abusive or unlawful conduct, or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.

When You Contribute Money Online

To assist with meeting Federal Election Commission requirements, it is our policy to collect the name, mailing address, occupation and employer of individuals who donate to The Us Campaign Fund. These records are available to the public. However, they cannot be used by other organizations for fundraising. We also make a note of your telephone number and e-mail address, which helps us contact you quickly if following up regarding your contribution is necessary under Federal election law. For additional information, visit the FEC website at http://www.fec.gov.

When You Sign One of Our Petitions

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