EFFECTIVE DATE: January 5, 2015
By accessing or using any of our Services (including by downloading our mobile application or any software, or logging into the platforms), you agree that we will collect and handle personal information as described in this Policy. Your use of our Services, and any dispute over privacy, is subject to this Policy and our Terms of Service, available at www.salsalabs.com/terms-service, including its applicable limitations on damages and the resolution of disputes. The Terms of Service are incorporated by reference into this Policy.
We may collect information directly from Customers and their Supporters, from third parties, and automatically through the Services.
Information We Collect Directly From Customers. We collect information directly from our Customers, about those Customers and about their Supporters, including:
Information We Collect From or About Supporters. On behalf of our Customers, we collect payment information directly from their Supporters (related to donations or campaigns), as well as other information, such as name, contact information, demographic information and other information, Supporters submit to a Customer, via our Services.
Information We Collect From Third Parties. If our Customers have opted in or requested that we do so, we may also engage third parties to enhance Supporter lists. For example, we may provide the email addresses of Supporters to a third party and ask that they append certain social media data (e.g., Twitter handle) to the Supporter data. We do this to provide Customers with additional details about their Supporters so that they can better target them. We won’t sell Supporter lists to third parties; however, the third parties we engage to enhance Supporter lists may maintain a copy of the lists in their database for their internal purposes.
Information We Collect Automatically. We may automatically collect the following information about your use of the Services through cookies, web beacons, log files, and other technologies: domain name; browser type and operating system; pages viewed, links clicked and other activities via the Services; IP address; the length of time using our Services; access time; device ID or other identifier; location and language information. We may combine this information with other information that we have collected, including, where applicable, personal information. Please see the “Cookies and Other Tracking Mechanisms” section below for more information.
We use the information we collect, including personal information, for the following purposes:
We may share the information we collect via the Services, including personal information, as follows:
Cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Services, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track activities on our Services. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Certain features of the Services will not function if you disable cookies.
Clear GIFs, pixel tags and other technologies. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with our Services to, among other things, track activities on the platforms and Services, help us manage content, and compile statistics about usage of the Services. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our Customers, to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, and track whether our e-mails are forwarded.
Our Services may contain links to, or appear on third-party websites. Any access to and use of such third party websites is not governed by this Policy, but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third party websites, and we are not responsible for the information practices of such third party websites.
We have implemented precautions to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security. You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your information (including Supporter information), password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords, or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
Customers may modify their registration information by emailing us email@example.com. Please note that copies of information that you have updated, modified or deleted will remain in our systems.
We may send periodic promotional or informational emails to Customers. Customers may opt-out of such communications by following the opt-out instructions contained in the e-mail. Please note that it may take up to 10 business days for us to process opt-out requests. If you opt-out of receiving emails about recommendations or other information we think may interest you, we may still send you e-mails about your account or any services you have requested or received from us.
Our Services are not designed for children under 13. If we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will delete such information from our systems.
If you have questions about the privacy aspects of our Services or would like to offer praise or make a complaint, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Policy is current as of the Effective Date set forth above. We may change this Policy from time to time, so please be sure to check back periodically. We will post any changes to this Policy, at www.salsalabs.com/privacy-policy. If we make any changes to this Policy that materially affect our practices with regard to the personal information we have previously collected, we will endeavor to provide notice in advance of such change by highlighting the change on our website, or by emailing Customers or notifying them in another manner (e.g., such as when they log in to the Services).
