Privacy and Non-Disclosure

I understand the need for operational security and organizational integrity, and recognize that I may be provided with information in strict confidence to enable me to perform my functions as a contractor, volunteer leader, or intern of Common Defense. I will not share outside of Common Defense any information or materials I have developed for or have been given by the organization without proper vetting, consultation, and authorization.

I agree to treat all information about members, past and present partner organizations, and intellectual property as confidential during the performance of my role, and I understand that it would be a violation of policy to disclose such information to anyone without consulting with the Common Defense staff first. I agree that I will strictly limit my use of Common Defense resources, including but not limited to member, volunteer, and donor lists, organizational email accounts, social media channels, and funds, to official Common Defense business only.


In my capacity as part of Common Defense, I agree not to share information regarding Common Defense’s campaign plans, strategy, messaging or targeting with any candidate, candidate’s campaign, political party, or any agent thereof without express authorization, and otherwise to comply with all relevant FEC and IRS regulations, including but not limited to rules regarding non-coordination and in-kind contributions to candidates for elected office.
