Privacy Policy

Revised August 2019

Michelle Gomez for Oceanside City Council 2020 cares about your privacy rights, and about
providing you with the information you need in order to protect them. Accordingly, we’ve
created this policy to explain our privacy practices. This policy applies to the
http://www.michelle4oside.com Website only.

We may revise and update this policy if our practices change, if we add new features to the site,
or if we change existing ones that affect these practices. We may also modify this policy if we
find better ways to inform you of products or services that we think will be of interest. You
should refer back to this page often for the latest information.

Information Collected About You
We collect a variety of personal information about those who register on our site, make contributions through our site or use other functions or features on the site. Personal information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity such as a name, address, telephone number, credit card information, bank account information, e-mail address, or information about activities that are directly linked to that person.

We collect information you give us when you register on our site, contact us or make an online
contribution. For example, when making a contribution, in addition to providing us your name,
address, occupation and name of employer, you will need to provide us a billing address and
credit card or bank account information, and answer a series of brief questions to make sure we
may legally accept your contribution.

You may make changes to the information you have provided by visiting any form throughout
the http://www.michelle4oside.com site. You may also contact us at
michelle@michelle4oside.com with any questions or changes to your account.

Automatically Collected Information: We automatically receive certain types of information
whenever you interact with us online. For example, when you visit our site, our systems
automatically collect your IP address and the type of browser you use. Information may be
automatically collected through the use of “cookies” (more information below). We may also
collect “clickstream” data about your use of the site.

Network And Information Security
We employ a variety of physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your personal
information. For example, we use commercially reasonable tools and techniques to protect
against unauthorized access to our systems. Also, we restrict access to personal information
about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide services to you. In
addition, we work to protect the security of your personal information by using Secure Sockets

Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input and allows you to view your
information in a secure manner.

You should be aware that 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. Further, we store the
personal information we collect from you behind a secure firewall and place the transaction site
on a secure server.

Disclosure Of Personal Information
Information about our donors and website visitors is one of our most important assets and
therefore we keep it confidential. Personal information is made available to others for the
following, limited purposes:

To Comply with Campaign Finance Laws. We are often required to disclose information
regarding our contributions to comply with campaign finance laws. For example, federal law
requires us to use our best efforts to collect and report the name, mailing address, occupation and name of employer of individuals whose contributions aggregate in excess of $99 in a calendar year.

To Carry Out Your Requests. We also may be required to disclose personal information in order
to carry out your requests when you use the site. For example, we will share personal
information with third parties as necessary to complete a donation transaction or to deliver an e-
mail to someone you have identified or when we disclose your return address as part of the

To Protect You and Ourselves. We release personal information when we believe release 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.

To Support Democratic Candidates and Organizations. We may disclose selected personal
information (other than credit card or bank information) to other campaigns and organizations
that we believe are like-minded or that we believe you may wish to hear from.
