Who we are

Our website address is http://natalie4congress.com.

Welcome to Natalie4Congress.com and here is our Privacy Policy.

Natalie4Congress is affiliated only with Natalie M Fleming for Congress, and has no current political ties with Political Parties or anyone other political organization. As digital privacy is one of the issues that needs protection, Natalie4Congress.com will limit as much as possible the amount of data collected, and will not share it excepting for necessary network communications such as minimal cookies, to contact you if you request it,  with PayPal to process financial transactions for donations or with the Federal Elections Commission to abide by Federal reporting requirements.

By using this site, you agree to these Terms of Service. We may update this site, so come back and check for any updates.

Information Collected
Voluntary Information: If you are thrilled with what Natalie4Congress has to offer, you may sign up to volunteer, contact Natalie4Congress, or even Donate to Natalie4Congress. On those events, we will collect your name, email address, mailing address, ZIP and phone numbers, credit card or Paypal info for financial donations. This site links to PayPal and PayPal handles all financial transactions thus Natalie4Congress.com doesn’t actually obtain or keep your credit card info.

For the Donations, we are required to request your Occupation and Employer which we share with the Federal Election Commission for required reporting.

We are not required to share volunteer information with anyone, only donor info to the Federal Elections Commission.

If you provide your mobile phone numbers, we may use the following information, your mobile phone number, mobile carrier name, date and time of messages sent to and from Natalie4Congress.com. We will protect that data.

Device Information Collected Automatically: Non personally identifiable information such as IP addresses, date, time, your device’s unique ID, links clicked within Natalie4Congress.com. Your IP address can give us a general idea of the region you connect from, that’s just so we can get an idea of where site traffic is coming from. There is no reason for massive traffic from certain countries.

You can visit Natalie4Congress.com without signing up to volunteer or donate and you can opt out of cookies too. We recommend you clean out your cookies frequently.

Cookies: Cookies make your return visit to the site speedy as it saves your site settings for your return visit. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.

Jetpack Site Stats: Is just a cool tool we use to see where and what people are viewing on the site, and where they come from. It uses your IP address, date and time, and how long you stay. Neither Natalie4Congress nor Jetpack will connect your IP address with any other data provided by you nor attempt to associate it with personally identifiable information.

You can Disable cookies from Natalie4Congress or any and every website by modifying your “Cookie” settings in your web browser. It may slow down your site experience but you may find your privacy worth it.

Information Use and Sharing

If you offer to volunteer, our volunteer coordinators and staff may receive your data to contact and coordinate efforts with you. If you give us your contact info, we are going to contact you. But, we will not share your contact info with outside political organization, PACs or Russia.

If Natalie M Fleming runs for another political office in future elections, your contact information will transfer to her new political committee. Your contact info will not be transferred to any other individual candidate. You may contact us at any time to have your contact information removed.

If you are visiting this site from another country, Welcome. It’s nice to meet you and we hope you enjoy your visit. As website laws vary from country to country and this website is intended for Idaho residents, and Idaho is within the United States of America and our servers are within the United States of America, we will abide by the laws of the United States of America and will protect the privacy of all visitors to this site.  Your information will be stored, transmitted, and process within computer systems located in the United States.
