Collection of your Personal Information
There are several places on our web site where we may ask for your name, address, telephone number, email address, interests and other information.

When you sign one of our petitions or endorsements: 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 along with your city and state available to the press and public online.
When you contribute money online: Under Federal Election law, we are required to make periodic filings that provide the Federal Election Commission with information on each contributor: name, address, amount of contribution, date of contribution, employer and occupation. We collect and disclose this information, and we also request other information to verify the legality of your contribution.
