When you visit our website, you trust us with your personal information. We take your privacy very seriously. In this privacy notice, we describe our privacy notice. We seek to explain to you in the clearest way possible what information we collect, how we use it and what rights you have in relation to it. This privacy policy applies to all information collected through our website and/or any related services or events. Please read this privacy notice carefully as it will help you make informed decisions about sharing your personal information with us.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?


We collect personal information you voluntarily submit to us. For example, givers may provide us with personal information such as name, address, email address, telephone number and credit card information. If a giver or website visitor contacts us by email they may provide us with their name, phone number, and/or email address. Providing data is required in these contexts in order for us to process your gifts, requests, or respond to inquiries.

HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?


We collect information mostly for gifts to complete our charitable projects, for fundraising campaigns, and to provide you with information about our projects and activities. We may also use information for internal analytical purposes.

We use the information we collect or receive:

  • To facilitate account creation and login process. If you choose to link your account with us to a third party account, such as your Facebook account, we use the information you allowed us to collect from those third parties to facilitate account creation and login process for site usage. See the section below headed HOW DO WE HANDLE YOUR SOCIAL LOGINS for further information.

  • To manage user accounts. We may use your information for the purposes of managing your account and keeping it in working order.

WILL YOUR INFORMATION BE SHARED WITH ANYONE?


No, we will never trade, sell, or share your information.

HOW DO WE HANDLE YOUR SOCIAL LOGINS?


Our site offers you the ability to register, and optionally use your third party social media account details (like your Facebook or Twitter logins). Where you choose to do this, we will receive certain profile information about you from your social media provider. The profile Information we receive may vary depending on the social media provider concerned, but will often include your name, e-mail address, profile picture as well as other information you choose to make public. If you login using Facebook, we may also request access to other permissions related to your account, and you may choose to grant or deny us access to such permissions.

We will use the information we receive only for the purposes that are described in this privacy notice or that are otherwise made clear to you on the site. Please note that we do not control, and are not responsible for, other uses of your personal information by your third party social media provider, such as Facebook. We recommend that you review their privacy policy to understand how they collect, use and share your personal information, and how you can set your privacy preferences on their sites and apps.

HOW DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION SAFE?


We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, please also remember that we cannot guarantee that the internet itself is 100% secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, transmission of personal information to and from our site is at your own risk. You should only access the services within a secure environment.
