CauseMatch Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy explains how CauseMatch collects and uses data. If not otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms have the meaning given to them in the CauseMatch Terms of Use, which is available at https://www.causematch.com/terms/ (the “Terms”).

CauseMatch respects your right to privacy. Your ability to make informed choices about the use of your information is important to us. This Privacy Policy explains CauseMatch’s policies regarding the collection, use, disclosure and protection of any information we receive.

Information We Collect

In order to use our Services, you will be required to register and provide us with certain Personal Information, such as your name and e-mail address. Organizations can ask you to include your telephone number and address. When making a donation you may choose to add a personal note as well. We collect information about the donation amount and the date on which it was made. We use a third party service provider for the payments and do not store your credit card details. When you contact us for any purpose, we may store the details regarding the same. “Personal Information” means information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity such as a name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. It is your voluntary decision whether to provide us with any such Personal Information, but if you refuse to provide such information we may not be able to register you to use the Services or let you make donations.

We may also collect certain information automatically, such as information regarding your computer, device, operating system, geolocation, browser and IP address, as well as information regarding your activities using the Services, including which ads you viewed on the Site, your browsing history on our Site and which offers or services interested you.

How we Protect Information

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We will delete any information provided to us by a user upon the receipt of a written request by such user. We cannot restore information that we have deleted.

How we Use Information

Except as expressly set forth herein, we will not share your Personal Information with third parties without your explicit permission, except when required by law, regulation, subpoena or court order or in order to cooperate with an investigation by a law enforcement body. We may use Personal Information internally – for example, to help diagnose problems with our servers, to make CauseMatch more useful, or to customize CauseMatch and personalize its content for you. We may also use your information (including Personal Information, as well as other information which may be available on the Internet) to provide you with advertising in which we believe you may be interested.

We use information regarding your donations as well as choice of an Organization and/or any department within it and/or Charity for purposes of making donations.

In addition, by analyzing all information we receive, including all information concerning users and exercise activity, we may compile statistical information across a variety of platforms and users (“Statistical Information”). Statistical Information helps understand trends and customer needs so that new products and services can be considered and so existing products and services can be tailored to customer desires. Statistical Information is anonymous. We may share such Statistical Information with our partners, without restriction, on commercial terms that we can determine in our sole discretion.

We may provide non-Personal Information that we receive to Google Analytics in order to receive an analysis of the use of our Services. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with Personal Information. Please see the Google Analytics Terms of Service (available at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html ) and the Google Privacy Policy (available at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy ) for additional information.
