1. OUR COLLECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION
The information we collect may include your personal information, such as your name, contact information, IP addresses, product and service selections and other things that identify you. We collect personal information from you at several different points, including but not limited to the following:
when we correspond with you as a donor/customer or prospective donor/customer;
when you visit our website;
when you make a donation on our website;
when you register as an end-user of our services and an account is created for you;
when you contact us for help;
when the site sends us error reports or application analytics data.
We automatically track and collect the following categories of information when you visit our website: (1) IP addresses; (2) domain servers; (3) types of computers, smartphones, or tablets accessing the website; (4) types of web browsers used to access the website; and (5) analytics data related to mobile application use, including, but not limited to, length of time on the application, activities on the application, and features accessed on the application (collectively “Traffic Data”). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for marketing purposes or for improving your experience on the Platform. We also use “cookies” to customize content specific to your interests, to ensure that you do not see the same advertisement repeatedly, and to store your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit the Platform.
Certain applications provided via the website and service may provide you the choice of allowing access to your location data, particularly if you give such application access to your social media account(s) such as Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. This means that the application provider may know the exact physical location of an end user and contact an end user to provide product offerings in a given area. If you wish to disable this functionality, you may do so in the given application.
2. OUR USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Our Company may use information that we collect about you to:
deliver the products and services that you have requested;
manage your customer relationship and provide you with customer support;
communicate with you by e-mail, postal mail, telephone or mobile devices about products or services that may be of interest to you;
develop and display content and advertising tailored to your interests on our site;
3. OUR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
We do not share your information with any other parties.
4. OUR SECURITY MEASURES TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Our Company uses industry-standard technologies when transferring and receiving data exchanged between our website and the donation platform to help ensure its security. This site has security measures in place to help protect information under our control from the risk of accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration or unauthorized disclosure or access. However, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. Also, if this website contains links to other sites, our Company is not responsible for the security practices or the content of such sites.
Web Beacons. Our Company and third parties may also use small pieces of code called “web beacons” or “clear gifs” to collect anonymous and aggregate advertising metrics, such as counting page views, promotion views, or advertising responses. These “web beacons” may be used to deliver cookies that conform to our Company’s cookie requirements.
Website Links. We may create links to other web sites. We will make a reasonable effort to link only to sites that meet similar standards for maintaining each individual’s right to privacy. However, many other sites that are not associated with or authorized by our Company may have links leading to our site. Our Company cannot control these links and we are not responsible for any content appearing on these sites. Since this website does not control the privacy policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy practices of that third party. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose any personal information to others.
6. LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA (EEA AND SWITZERLAND ONLY)
With respect to personal data collected from individuals from the European Economic Area or Switzerland, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal data will depend on the personal data concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. Our Company will normally collect personal data from you only where: (a) we have your consent to do so, (b) where we need the personal data to perform a contract with you (e.g. to deliver the services you have requested), or (c) where the processing is in our or a third party’s legitimate interests (and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms).
7. LIMITING USE, DISCLOSURE, RETENTION

We will keep your personal data only as long as required to serve those purposes. We will also retain and use your personal data for as long as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
