What Information do we Collect?
We may collect both personally identifiable information about you and non-personally identifiable information about your visit when you access our Site and/or our App.
Personally Identifiable Information: The personally identifiable information we collect includes information you submit to us. For example, if you subscribe to online services we offer or register for certain services with us online that require registration, agree to participate in on-line surveys, participate in on-line contests, sweepstakes and promotions sponsored by us, make certain on-line information requests to us, or want to establish a profile for submission of user generated content available to other Site visitors, we may ask you to provide personally identifiable information such as your contact information (e.g., name, phone number, address and e-mail address) and user demographic information (e.g., gender, age, hobbies or interests). Because participation in these activities is completely voluntary, you have a choice whether or not to disclose this information.
Non-personally Identifiable Information:
The non-personally identifiable information we collect includes the domain name of the site providing you with Internet access, the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, which is usually associated with the place from which you enter the Internet, like your Internet Service Provider, your company or your university, and whether you access our services through the Site or the App. Our service may also collect your browser type and version, the operating system your computer or other device is running, and other site visit data such as the pages you view, the referring page that linked you to us (e.g., another Web site or a search engine), information you search for, information or ads you click on, the average time spent on our Site, and the web site you visit after this Site. Much of this information is tracked through log files, which are stored on Company’s servers. As explained below, we may link this information with your personal information when we feel that it is necessary to enforce compliance with our rules and policies, terms of service, license agreements or to protect our Sites, App, customers or others.
How is Your Information Used?
Personally Identifiable Information: GiveForward considers the personally identifiable information contained in our business records to be confidential. We will not sell, rent, or share your personally identifiable information with unaffiliated third parties without your consent, except as described in this policy. We use your personally identifiable information such as your Contact information to send you confirmation notices regarding services you have requested and to notify contest or sweepstakes winners and award prizes.
Non-personally Identifiable Information: Non-personal information collected about your site visits, anonymous survey information, and certain aggregated demographic information will be used for purposes of reporting survey results and to allow us to better understand the entire audience that is visiting our Site and using our App. Except as noted below we track and record IP addresses that access our Site for reporting and profiling purposes only. We monitor and analyze this information to increase the functionality and user-friendliness of our Site and our App and better tailor the Site and the App to our visitors’ needs. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers, gather broad demographic information, and administer our Site or our App.
Sharing with Service Providers: To do all of the things described above, we may share your personally identifiable information with our business partners or others who work for us such as service providers, vendors, contractors and agents (collectively “Service Providers”). We provide our Service Providers with the information they require to perform services for us, but we ask our Service Providers not to use users’ personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
Information Posted to Public Forums: This Site at some or all times makes forums, public commenting and/or message boards, available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. Company cannot accept any responsibility for ensuring the privacy of information that you choose to disclose in these areas.
