What information is being collected at PageGOP.org?
The only personal information collected is information you give us: In our effort to grow our Republican grassroots community online, the PCRP may at times ask you to submit information – such as your name and email address for our online email subscription. We also have volunteer and member forms with request name, address, email, phone for evaluation purposes. If you choose not to give us any information, we may not be able to provide you with the most timely information pertaining to: breaking news, online events, personal appearances, talking points, activists alerts and other Republican related information.
How we analyze PageGOP.org to better serve you: We use a WordPress privacy analytic tool, not a third-party analytic provider, such as Google Analytics, to collect basic internet log information and assess the aggregate level of traffic to PageGOP.org. We collect unique user visits, page visits and what search engine you used to find us. We do not collect who you are.
Information collected when you donate: Nothing on the website, itself. We use Stripe and Donorbox, which have a partnership for political donations, and complies with FEC regulations and reporting requirements. Its secure, reliable and fully integrated. The Donorbox donation form looks like its embedded on the website to create a seamless user experience.
Donorbox is PCI compliant under “PCI validation: SAQ A”. Donorbox utilizes Stripe Elements technology which has financial input fields that are managed securely in Stripe’s iframe. Stripe is certified as a PCI Level 1 Service Provider, the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry.
The transmission between the donors, the Donorbox form, and Stripe is encrypted using 256bit SSL/TLS. Card numbers are tokenized (the number is changed to an undecipherable string, IE: `tok_fafds23423′) before we charge the card. Saved cards and bank accounts for recurring donations are also tokenized. Therefore, Donorbox does not have any record of the donor’s card number in its database or logs, and hackers will never obtain sensitive card or bank information from either Donorbox or Stripe.
You can donate using a credit or debit card. We incur a small processing fee for each donation and ask the donor to add those processing fees to their donation to offset our cost. It is completely optional, but much appreciated. We can enable recurring donations, if a donor requests it. Recurring donations require you to create an account with Donorbox, so that your card can be debited on the interval you choose.
When you make a contribution to the PCRP, federal and state law requires us to obtain the following information: name, address, employer, occupation, employer location and amount of contribution. Federal law requires us to report this information to the FEC if an individual’s contribution or contributions aggregate is in excess of $200 in a single calendar year.
Contributions from corporations, government contractors, and foreign nationals without a “green card” are prohibited. $2,900 per person for a given candidate per election cycle is the maximum contribution allowed by law for the 2021-2022 election cycles. Click HERE for details on the FEC website.
How is the information collected at PageGOP.org used?
When you offer your personal information and/or choose to participate in our volunteer efforts, we use your information to personalize and customize webpages and emails from PageGOP.org to you. Under no circumstances will the PCRP sell your information to third parties or any commercial entities.
The PCRP may share information — that you voluntarily provide us — with like-minded organizations committed to the principles or candidates of the Republican Party, Republican State Party organizations and local Republican groups. The PCRP may provide your email address or other personal information to authorized third parties required to deliver a particular service. These third parties may not use said information for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for the PCRP.
An example of this is for email distributions, should you sign up. We use a licensed 3rd party SMTP email server to ensure the email we send out from the website do not end up in your junk folder. This special server is designed to handle large volumes of email traffic and signs each email with SPF and DKIM, which encrypts the email to protect senders and recipients from spam, spoofing and phishing.
Is my information secure, and how can I manage my online information?
Strict security measures are in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of any and all information pertaining to the PCRP. Access to personally identifiable information is limited to dedicated staff. To ensure the highest level of security the PCRP employs best practices, including running PageGOP.org on secure servers located in a protected location.
However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us.
