We are committed to respecting the privacy rights of visitors and users of our Service online at https://givetivity.com/ (the “Site”). Our Site and the Givetivity platform and application are collectively referred to hereinafter as our “Service.” We created this Privacy Policy to give you confidence as you visit and use our Service, and to demonstrate our commitment to fair information practices and the protection of privacy. This Privacy Policy is only applicable to our Service, and not to any other websites that you may be able to access from our Service, each of which may have data collection and use practices and policies that differ materially from this Privacy Policy.
We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy carefully when using our Service or transacting business with us. If you have any questions about our privacy practices, please refer to the end of this Privacy Policy for information on how to contact us.

We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time. When changes are made, we will make the revised version available on the Site, indicating at the top of this page the date that revisions were last made. YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE AFTER SUCH POSTING WILL CONSTITUTE ACCEPTANCE BY YOU OF SUCH CHANGES.

1. Information Collection Practices.

a. Types of Information Collected.

i. Non-Personal Information.

• Traffic Data. We automatically track and collect the following categories of information when you visit our Site to use the Service: (1) IP addresses; (2) domain servers; (3) types of computers or devices accessing the Site and access times; and (4) types of web browsers or applications used to access the Site, and any referring website addresses (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 Site in using the Service.

• Cookies. When you visit our Site to use the Service, we may assign the browser from which you access our Service one or more cookies or similar technologies to facilitate access to our Service and to personalize your online experience. Through the use of a “cookies” or similar technology, we also may automatically collect information about your online activity on our Site, such as the web pages you visit, the links you click, the searches you conduct on our Site and we also collect and store the password associated with your account so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit the Site. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies or decide which types of cookies to automatically accept or reject.

• Mobile Devices. We may receive information from your mobile devices when you visit our Site, such as identifiers for advertising (“IDFA”) and geographic or geolocation information. If you choose to turn off identifiers such as IDFA or locational tracking on your mobile device, please note that you may not be able to use some of the interactive features offered through our Service.

• Analytics Data. We may use analytics tools and other third-party technologies, such as Google Analytics, to collect non-personal information in the form of various usage and user metrics when you use our Service. These tools and technologies collect and analyze certain types of information, including cookies, IP addresses, device and software identifiers, referring and exit URLs, onsite behavior and usage information, feature use metrics and statistics, usage and purchase history, MAC Address, mobile unique device ID, and other similar information (collectively, “Analytics Data”).

ii. Personal Information.

• Account Information and Communication. Although you may freely visit the Site, to create and host an event using the Service you must create a Givetivity account, which requires you to provide us with basic information about yourself (“Personal Information”). Personal Information includes the following categories of information: (1) “Contact Data” (such as your name, physical address, telephone number and e-mail address); and (2) “Demographic Data” (such as your zip code or other demographic or profile information we may ask you to provide when registering your account). If you communicate with us by e-mail, post messages to any of our chat groups, bulletin boards, or forums, or otherwise complete online forms, surveys, or contest entries, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information.

• Information About Others. We may also collect and store personal information about other people that you provide to us when you use our Service, including (without limitation) email address or physical address. So, for example, if you use our Service to send other information that may interest them, invitations or correspondence, or other communications through our Service, we may store and use the information you provide to us. We use the information you provide about others in several ways, including (a) to allow people to respond to and comment on your Givetivity invitation; (b) to send reminders and other event information; (c) to the extent so enabled by the host, to display the guests’ email address or other information to other guests of the same event; (d) to send post-event communications and promotional emails; and (e) to provide to third parties under some circumstances, such as, for example, providing certain billing zip code information to our payment processor WePay.

• Information from Social Network Service (including Facebook). If you link our Service with any third-party social networking service then we may collect certain information related to or associated with your account with that social networking service. For example, our Service allows you to potentially import or link your Facebook or Google contacts to prepare your Givetivity invitation. You may have the ability to control what information is shared from these third-party social network services by adjusting the privacy settings on those social media platforms. In addition, you may publish the Givetivity invitation through your other social media platforms, including user groups or by socializing a link to the Givetivity invite page.

• Payment Processing and Financial Information. The Service is designed such that the user who creates the event (i.e., the host) must register the event on our third-party payment processing vendor’s website at https://go.wepay.com/ in order to receive gift contributions from guests. Our Site does not collect or store your personal credit card, bank account or other payment information that you would provide to WePay to enable your guests to make gifts and contributions; all such financial information is stored and collected on the WePay site and is subject to the terms of the WePay terms of service and privacy policy. Please see https://go.wepay.com/terms-of-service and https://go.wepay.com/privacy-policy. Please see additional detail regarding payment processing in our Terms of Service, which can be found at https://givetivity.com/terms.

b. California and Delaware Do Not Track Disclosures. Various third parties are developing or have developed signals or other mechanisms for the expression of consumer choice regarding the collection of information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party web sites or online services (e.g., browser do not track signals). Currently, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to these signals or other mechanisms.

c. Uses of Information Collected. In addition to using information collected to manage our business or to enforce our Terms of Service, below are other examples of how Personal and non-Personal Information may be used.

i. Our Use of Non-Personal information. We use Traffic Data and may use cookies for marketing purposes or for improving your experience on the Service. The third- party analytics companies that collect Analytics Data may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other websites and/or other online or mobile products and services relating to your activities across their network of websites as well as online and/or mobile products and services. Many of these companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies. Analytics Data may be used to perform research and analysis about your use of, or interest in, our products, services, or content.

ii. Our Use of Personal Information. We use Contact Data to send you information about us and the Service or promotional material from some of our partners, or to contact you when necessary in order to provide the Service, to manage your account or provide you with customer support. We may use your Demographic Data to customize and tailor your experience on the Service, or to develop and display content or advertising that we think you might be interested in and according to your preferences. In addition, as a host of Givetivity event, your email address (or any other information that you voluntarily provide when you register your event and/or establish an activities registry on our Service) will be visible to guests who have been invited to your events.

iii. Sharing of Personal Information. We may share Demographic Data with advertisers and other third parties only on an aggregate (i.e., non-personally-identifiable) basis. We may share Contact Data with other companies who may want to send you information about their products or Service, unless you have specifically requested that we not share Contact Data with such companies. We also share (and/or provide access to) Contact Data with our business partners who assist us in performing the Service (including, without limitation, as hosting, billing, fulfillment, payment processing, data storage and security, customer service, business and sales analysis, technology infrastructure) related to our operation of the Service. Those business partners have all agreed to uphold the same standards of security and confidentiality that we have promised to you in this Privacy Policy, and they will only use your Contact Data and other Personal Information to carry out their specific business obligations to Givetivity. If you do not want us to share your Contact Data with any third parties, please email us at help@givetivity.com, but please understand that such a request will likely limit your ability to take advantage of all of the features and Service we offer on the Service. In addition, we maintain a procedure for you to review and request changes to your Personal Information; this procedure is described in Section 3 below.

iv. Sale of Business & Corporate Transactions. In order to accommodate changes in our business, we may sell portions of our company, including the information collected through this Service, or we may engage in another corporate transaction, such as a merger, consolidation, or a bankruptcy event. If Givetivity or substantially all of its assets are sold or Givetivity is involved in merger or other corporate transaction, customer information will be one of the assets transferred to the buyer or the surviving entity.

v. Other Situations. We also may disclose your information:

• In response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.

• When we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees, or others; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or to enforce our Services terms and conditions or other agreements or policies.

d. User Choice Regarding Collection, Use, and Distribution of Personal Information. You may choose not to provide us with any Personal Information. In such an event, you can still access and use parts of the Service; however, you will not be able to access and use those portions of the Service that require your Personal Information.

2. Confidentiality and Security of Personal Information. Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we will keep your Personal Information private and will not share it with third parties, unless such disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with a court order or other legal process; (b) protect our rights or property; or (c) enforce our Terms of Service. Your Personal Information is stored on secure servers that are not accessible by third parties. We provide you with the capability to transmit your Personal Information via secured and encrypted channels if you use a similarly equipped web browser. The Site has reasonable security measures in place, including but not limited to the use of a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information that we obtain from you, but we make no assurances about our ability to prevent any such loss, misuse, to you or to any third party arising out of any such loss, misuse, or alteration. We take reasonable security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) intended to help safeguard your Personal Information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, only authorized employees, contractors, and service providers are permitted to access Personal Information, and they may do so only for permitted business functions. In addition, we use firewalls to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your Personal Information.

3. User Ability to Access, Update, and Correct Personal Information. If you set up an online account with us when you hosted a Givetivity event, you have the ability to review and update your personal information online by logging into your account. You may access, review and update the Personal Information we have collected about you in the Profile page of your account. You may also correct this information by contacting us at help@givetivity.com or 310-243-6243. To close your Givetivity account, you need to contact us at help@givetivity.com, and upon verification of your account profile information by our customer service representative, your account will be de-activated or deleted.

4. Public Forums. The Service may include interactive forums such as message boards and chat rooms. 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.

5. Third Party Websites. The Service may contain links to other websites. If you choose to visit those websites or click on an advertisement that takes you to another site, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of those websites, and it is your responsibility to review the privacy policies at those websites to confirm that you understand and agree with their policies, including their collection, storing and maintenance of any information you choose to provide to such third party websites. This includes a host’s registration and transmittal of personal financial or payment information to the WePay site, which you will be required to access as a host of an event and as part of setting up an activity registry.

6. Consent to Processing and Transfer of Information from Outside of United States. The Service is hosted in the United States. If you utilize our Service from the European Union or Switzerland, or any other region with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note you are voluntarily transferring your personal data outside of those jurisdictions to the United States. The United States does not have the same data protection laws as the European Union, Switzerland or other regions. By providing Personal Information under this Privacy Policy, you expressly consent to the use of your Personal Information in accordance with this policy and expressly consent to the transfer of your Personal Information to the United States.

7. Children’s Privacy. Our Service is for a general audience and is not directed to or intended for children under the age of 13.
