Information You Provide to Us
We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect personal information when you sign up to receive updates, request information, fill out a form, sign a petition, sign up as a volunteer, sign up for an event, create an account, 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. Personal information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity. The types of information we may collect include your name, contact information (such as email address, postal address, phone number, usernames, social media handles), location, credit card and other payment information (which may be collected directly by a third-party processor), and any other contact or identifying information you choose to provide. You are not required to provide information directly to us in order to view the Site. The information that we collect from you through this Site will vary depending upon how you use the Site and what information you choose to provide to us. You may make changes to the information you have provided by contacting us [email protected].
In addition, federal, state and local laws may require us to collect certain personal information from donors. For example, the City of Los Angeles and the State of California require us to collect (and disclose to them) the name, mailing address, occupation, and employer of all individuals whose donations to the Campaign exceed $100 per calendar year.
Donations will be processed through ActBlue.com. When you donate through ActBlue, you will need to provide your name, address, occupation and name of employer, credit card information, billing address, and confirm that we may legally accept your contribution based on the specific disclosures set forth on the ActBlue.com fundraising platform. When donating through ActBlue, ActBlue will provide us with your name, address, occupation, employer, and any additional contact information that you use when donating, but not your credit card information.

Information We Collect from Other Sources
We and our service providers may also obtain information about you from other sources (such as social networking sites, databases, online marketing firms, and ad targeting firms) and combine that with information we collect about you on our Site.

We may also use such information for list matching purposes. Other examples include demographic data, such as age range, gender, and interests; advertisement interaction and viewing data, such as ad click-through rates and information about how many times you viewed a particular ad; and unique identifiers, including mobile device identification numbers, that can identify the physical location of such devices in accordance with applicable law.

How Do We Protect Your Information?
We employ a variety of physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your personal information from loss, theft, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. For example, we use commercially reasonable tools and techniques to protect against unauthorized access to our systems. We restrict access to personal information about you to those employees and third-party vendors who need to know that information to provide services to you. Further, we store the personal information we collect from you behind a secure firewall and place the transaction site on a secure server.
Despite our adherence to these standards we cannot guarantee 100% protection from the sorts of activities broadly referred to as “hacking” whose consequence might be a loss of electronic privacy. If such a breach were to occur, we would move rapidly to repair the breach, prosecute the trespasser, and notify you of any violation of your privacy as required by applicable law.
We have no control over the security of other sites on the Internet you might visit, interact with, or from which you buy products or services.
