A. What information do we collect from you?

We may provide an online interface to collect information from you as a visitor wherein you may voluntarily provide Personally Identifiable Information, including but not limited to name, email address, phone number, mailing address and demographic information such as age and how you learned about us. Pursuant to our Privacy Policy, we use Personally Identifiable Information for a variety of potential uses including but not limited to registering volunteers, creating our mailing and emailing lists, and taking donations/bids. Visitors may receive electronic transmission from us after you have made initial contact, and visitors may be further contacted. Visitors, please let us know your preferred method of contact via email including if you would like to subscribe to an opt-in newsletter if one should be created by Nonprofit. Demographic and profile data may be collected at our Site. We may use such data to tailor our visitor’s experience at our Site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences. All collected data is for internal use only and is never shared with third parties except to further the purposes of our Site.

In addition, should you choose to purchase products and/or make donations/bids from and/or on the Site, to the extent and product or services are available, we will ask for certain information from you, including, without limitation, billing information and shipping information, to complete the transaction. Such information may need to be communicated to third parties who are directly assisting us with the transaction. We will never share or sell your personal information with any third parties who are not directly related to the transaction. Any information collected through the Site for the transaction is used for the transaction only. Your personal information is secured.

B. Where do we collect information from you and how do we use it?

We do not collect any Personally Identifiable Information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information to us when you:

(a) Register as a volunteer for our programs and activities and register your email address with us;

(b) Send us email messages, submit forms or transmit other information to us by telephone or letter;

(c) Distribute email messages regarding our programs and activities;

(d) Submit your credit card or other payment information (through a third party credit card processor) when donating funds or bidding on items on our Site; or

(e) Purchase products from the Site.

We may also collect information from you at other points on our Site that state that such information is being collected.

In addition, we may also collect, or our third party ad server and/or content server, if any, may collect, certain non-Personally Identifiable Information. This information is ultimately stored in the form of store categories, and, in some cases, specific URLs. We may use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers and software, to administer our Site, and to gather demographic information.

C. With whom do we share your information?

We do not sell, trade, or rent your Personally Identifiable Information to others.

Other third party websites accessible through the Site have their own privacy policies, data collection practices, and use and disclosure practices. We are not responsible for the policies or practices of third parties and make no warranties or representations whatsoever about such practices. You should contact these third parties directly if you have any questions about the use of the information that they collect.

Occasionally we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide Personally Identifiable Information to appropriate governmental authorities. We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.

D. What are your choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information?

We may, from time to time, send you email regarding our programs and activities. Only the Nonprofit (or agents working on behalf of the Nonprofit and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these direct mailings and only if you have indicated that you do not object to these offers. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us when you give us your personal information.

E. What security precautions are in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you donate/bid or register as a volunteer including the use of a secure server.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet that are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Site cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.

F. Do we use “cookies”?

When you use our Site we will store cookies on your computer in order to facilitate and customize your use of our Site. The cookies make your use of the Site easier, make the Site run more smoothly and help us to maintain a secure Site. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our Site may not work properly in that case.

We may use an outside ad serving company to display banner advertisements on our Site. As part of their service, they will place a separate cookie on your computer. We will not provide any third party ad server with any of your Personally Identifiable Information or information about your donations, if any. Other advertisers may also place banner ads on our Site in the same manner as above, but we will not disclose any Personally Identifiable Information to them.

G. What should you know about privacy policies and data collection at any third party sites accessible from our Site?

Except as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Policy, this policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. Other sites accessible through our Site have their own privacy policies and data collection, use and disclosure practices. Please consult each site’s privacy policy. We are not responsible for the policies or practices of third parties. Additionally, other companies that place advertising on our Site may collect information about you when you view or click on their advertising through the use of cookies. We cannot control this collection of information. You should contact these advertisers directly if you have any questions about their use of the information that they collect.

H. How do we protect the privacy of minors?

You must be at least 13 years old to have our permission to use this Site. Our policy is that we do not knowingly collect, use or disclose Personally Identifiable Information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for participation on our Site, including but not limited to registering for a Nonprofit account or otherwise participating in any of our events. If you are under 13, please do not provide any information about yourself to us, including but not limited to your name, address, telephone number, or email address. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at admin@sharity.org.

We recommend that minors between the ages of 13 and 18 years of age ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.
