Information Collected by ActBlue
When you contribute to candidates, causes, and committees on ActBlue, we collect your name, postal address, phone number, email address, occupation, employer, and, in some cases, employer’s address, depending on the type of contribution you’re making. Campaign finance law requires that we send your name, address, occupation, and employer information along with details of your donation to the recipient of your contribution and report this information in our reports to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) or the relevant respective state agency. Each candidate, committee, or organization receiving your donations may also include this information in their regulatory reports. FEC reports containing this information are publicly available from the FEC website. State reports are typically available through the state agency designated to oversee campaigns and elections. ActBlue does not publicly report your personal information in connection with your charitable or social welfare giving.
Credit Card Information
We securely transmit your credit card information to one of our payment processors: Vantiv WorldPay, PayPal, or Apple Pay. We do not store this information unless you have specifically requested us to store it for ease of future payments with an ActBlue Express account or for a recurring contribution. All credit card information is handled in accordance with current PCI standards. ActBlue is a PCI Level 1 service provider.
Reports to contribution form creators
People who create contribution forms receive reports about donations made through the forms they made. These reports include the dates, amounts, and recipients of contributions as well as the names, addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers of donors.
Use of third party vendors
We log IP addresses, which are the locations of computers or networks on the Internet, and analyze them for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. We also aggregate the number of page hits in order to track the popularity of certain pages and improve the quality of our site.
ActBlue does not knowingly solicit or collect personally identifying information from children under the age of 13. ActBlue does not permit contributions from minors under the age of 18.
