COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
Information You Provide to Us
We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you request information, sign up to receive email or text updates, fill out a form, sign up to volunteer or to attend or host an event, apply for a job, respond to a request for proposal, create an account, manage your Convention participation and bus transportation, participate in a contest or promotion, make a donation or purchase, communicate with us via third party social media sites, request support, send us an email, or otherwise communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include your name, contact information (such as email address, postal address, and phone number), credit card and other payment information (which may be collected directly by a third-party processor), resume information, background check information, information about your participation at the Convention and other events, and any other information you choose to provide.
In addition, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) may require us to collect certain personal information from donors. For example, the FEC requires us to collect (and disclose to them) the name, mailing address, occupation, and employer of all individuals whose donations to the DNCC exceed $200 per election cycle.
