We may collect personal data about you when you visit the Site or avail yourself of our Services. “Personal Data” is information that may be used to directly or indirectly identify you, including your name, e-mail address, phone number or other information about you that you provide through our Services.

Some of the Personal Data that we collect is required if you wish to partake in the Services that we provide.

We or our service providers may also collect web surfing data related to your use of the Site. Such information may include: your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, and internet service provider (ISP); your operating system; which of our web pages you access and how frequently you access them; referral or exit pages; click stream data; and the dates and times that you visit the Site. This data may be collected using cookies, web beacons, page tags or similar tools. As with cookies, the web surfing information is anonymous, "click stream" transactional data that is not associated with any users as individuals.
Web surfing data and similar information may be aggregated for administrative purposes. We may, for example, use this aggregated information in the administration of the Site to improve its usability and to evaluate the success of marketing and advertising campaigns, search engine optimization strategies, operation and effectiveness of pages on our website, and other marketing activities. We also use it to help optimize the Site based on the needs of our users.
How and When Your Information Is Shared With Other Parties
With your consent, we provide your chosen non-profit organizations with information about your donating and volunteering activity.
We work with a number of trusted partners who may perform vital functions as part of our operations. For example, we utilize third-party providers to process volunteering activities for registration and reporting processing. We do not share your Personal Data unless it is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities, including providing information or Services to you.
Additional Sharing of Information
We may engage third parties to help us carry out certain other internal functions such as account and payment processing, client services, or other data collection relevant to our business. For example, we utilize third-party providers to manage credit card and payment processing. Personal Data is shared with these third parties only to the extent necessary for us to process the transactions you initiate or perform other specific services. Our partners are legally required to keep your Personal Data private and secure.
We may share your Personal Data with law enforcement or other government agencies as required by law or for the purposes of limiting fraud. We reserve the right to disclose your Personal Data when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process. We further reserve the right to disclose any of your Personal Data that we believe, in good faith, appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of the Site or our services, or to protect our rights, property or the personal safety of Causecast, its users, issuers, or others.
We will not share your Personal Data if such sharing is prohibited by applicable privacy and data protection law, including, without limitation, the EEA’s General Data Protection Regulation effective May 25, 2018.
From May 25, 2018, all processing of Personal Data of EEA Residents is performed by [Name] in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679) of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons regarding the processing of Personal Data and on the free movement of such data (“GDPR”).
Under the GDPR, we are both the controller and a co-processor of the Personal Data of EEA Residents. Our purpose for collecting and processing Personal Data from EEA Residents is to allow you to use and customize our Services, including directing your volunteering and charitable activities to the non-profit organizations of your choice. The legal basis for collecting Personal Data is to fulfill these purposes and our agreement with you or your employer to provide a platform for facilitating volunteering and charitable activities. We also rely on your consent to obtain Services from us, including providing Personal Data to non-profit organizations of your choice. You may withdraw consent from sharing your information with non-profit organizations by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If EEA Residents do not provide Personal Data to us or withdraw consent for processing such Personal Data, we may not be able to provide such residents with all or any of the Services, including facilitating your volunteering and charitable activities.
EEA Residents may obtain information about the Personal Data that we hold about them by contacting us at email@example.com.
International Data Transfers
If you are resident outside the United States, including in the EEA, we transfer Personal Data provided to you for processing in the United States. Under the GDPR, we are considered a “controller” and a “co-processor” of the Personal Data of EEA Residents. By providing Personal Data to us for the purpose of obtaining Services, you consent to the processing of such data in the United States. The transfer of your Personal Data to the United States is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and us for obtaining Services.
Please note that the United States does not have data protection laws equivalent to those in the EEA and other jurisdictions.
Notifications and Communications from Our Website/Opt-Out Rights
Communications Regarding Our Services
We will send you email notifications and free newsletters from time to time. Some notifications are communications relating to us and our Services. You may “opt-out” from receiving such communications by following the “Unsubscribe” instructions provided in the e-mail.
Legal or Security Communications

If you use our Services, we may send you confirmations of the registration and updates as to the status of your participation. Generally, you may not opt out of such emails.
Deleting Your Information
If you want us to delete your Personal Data and your account, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. We will take steps to delete your information as soon as we can, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records or as otherwise required by law.
Links to Other Sites
We limit access to the Personal Data we have about you to those employees who have a legitimate business need to access such information. We take commercially reasonable steps to protect our customers’ Personal Data against unauthorized disclosure or loss. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect user information we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from the Site. You engage in such transmissions at your risk.
If you believe your Personal Data is being improperly used by us or any third party, please immediately notify us via email at email@example.com.
Children Under 13
Our Sites are restricted to the use of adults over the age of majority in their place of residence. No portion of the Sites is directed to children under the age of 13. Consequently, we do not knowingly collect personal identifying information from any person we know is a child under the age of 13.
Do Not Track
Although some browsers currently offer a “do not track (‘DNT’) option,” no common industry standard for DNT exists. We therefore do not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals.
Your California Privacy Rights
Under certain circumstances, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 states that, upon receipt of a request by a California customer, a business may be required to provide information regarding how that business has shared personal information of customers with third parties for direct marketing purposes. If you have any questions regarding the disclosure of your personal information to third parties, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your Rights and Obligations
We ask that you keep the Personal Data that you provide to us current and that you correct any information you have provided us by contacting us at email@example.com. You represent and warrant that all Personal Data you provide us is true and correct and relates to you and not to any other person.
If you are a resident of the EEA and wish to access or correct the Personal Data that Causecast has about you or have any questions relating to the processing of your Personal Data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “GDPR Data.”
If you use the Site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and for restricting access to your computer or device, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account.
