The National Republican Data Center is an exclusive product of the Republican National Committee (RNC) and the Illinois Republican Party (IRP). The proprietary programming and technology utilized for the acquisition of data, updates and maintenance is ongoing and expensive. The RNC has provided that all individual state parties, (IRP) have the final authority for decisions granting requested user access. To that end, misuse and abuse will not be tolerated. The IRP can deny or revoke all and any levels of user access any time for cause.
User access will be terminated for unsuccessful primary candidates at the end of each primary election, and for all candidates at the end of each general election cycle applicable to that office. (pending any election contests/recounts where such data access would be necessary.) Users will be required to reapply upon termination.
Any situation not explicitly covered in the IRP Data Center rules and guidelines will be presented to the Executive Committee of the Illinois Republican State Central Committee in consultation with the RNC and officially designated Republican organizations (identified in the rules and guidelines) for resolution.
