What will CCD do with the information that I register?

The politicians will be required by contract to use your information in a very specific manner and for a specific purpose.
What is an example of how a political party or candidate could use my registered information?
If, for example you registered the following information:
- Phone Number(s)
- Email Address(s)
- How you would like to be contacted: email only
- Political affiliation: Example, Democrat
- Candidates interested in hearing from: Example: Hillary, Obama, and Edwards
- Issues you want to hear about: Example: Iraq, education, energy, economy
A candidate would then:
- Not call or send mail to you
- Send only email
- Only Hillary, Obama and Edwards would be allowed to do so
- Only on issues that you care about: Iraq, education, energy, economy
Why do you charge a fee for Membership?
What will you do with the money that CCD receives?
- CCD is a non profit 501 C3 corporation.
- CCD needs to cover operating expenses to run and manage the National Political Do Not Call Registry. The registry requires extensive technology operations as well as talent to be managed in a secure and scalable environment.
- All excess revenue will be invested in research and in foundations that promote the mission of civil political discourse.
Does CCD represent any political party?
- No, CCD is made up of US voters from all political persuasions.
Who is the leadership?
- CCD is currently led by CEO and Founder, Shaun Dakin. Mr. Dakin is a Democrat that believes that it is time for all of us to start listening to each other rather than shouting at each other.
A small step in that direction is the creation of a National Political Do Not Contact Registry where the voter, not the politician, can control the discussion about the issues that they care most about.
