Web User Privacy Policy (U.S.)

This website www.likecharity.com is provided by LIKECHARITY Connect, Inc. (“LIKECHARITY”). Your use of our website is governed by the Terms of Use, and by your use of our website you accept and acknowledge this Website Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”).

A Note About the Privacy of Children Under 13
Our website is not directed to or otherwise promoted for use by children under the age of thirteen (13). We or third-parties acting on our behalf do not knowingly collect or use any personal information of anyone under the age of thirteen (13). If you are under the age of 13, you must ask your parent or guardian to assist you in using our website.  We may also restrict usage of LIKECHARITY services to users who are at least 18 years of age.

What and How We Collect Your Personal Information
You may be asked to provide information that can be used to identify you or that allows us to contact you ("Personal Information") when you respond to certain inquiries or choose to use certain sections of our website. Providing this information is voluntary, and may include, but is not limited to, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and, where appropriate, credit card number. You can always choose not to provide information even though it may be needed to complete your pledge to a LIKECHARITY client. Also, when you visit our website, we or third-parties acting on our behalf will place a "cookie" - a text file containing a randomly assigned number on your computer - so that we have the ability to customize the look and feel of our website for you. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although doing so could prevent your use of certain features of our website.  Using embedded tracking technology, we or third-parties acting on our behalf will also collect a variety of other information regarding your usage of our website, including your IP address, your username, your session ID, the name of the browser you are using, information regarding web pages you view, and information regarding referring web pages, when you access our website.

How We Use Your Personal Information
Not surprisingly, much of the value that we provide through our website requires the use of your Personal Information. Specifically, we or third-parties acting on our behalf use your Personal Information in the following ways:

  1. to customize the look and feel of our website for you;

  2. to internally monitor our usage of the various aspects of our website in order to enhance the products and services that we currently or will offer in the future;

  3. to contact you in order to assist you in completing pledges;

  4. to send you material about topics on which you have requested more information; and

  5. to provide you with technical and other support.

While we or third-parties acting on our behalf use information about our users on an aggregated basis and will often share such data with unaffiliated third parties, this information, by its aggregate nature, contains none of your Personal Information. When we refer to an "unaffiliated" third party, we mean one that (i) is not controlled by us, (ii) does not control us, and (iii) is not controlled by the same party controlling us.

When We Disclose Your Personal Information
Except as explicitly stated in this Privacy Policy, we or third-parties acting on our behalf will not disclose to unaffiliated third parties any of your Personal Information without first obtaining your consent. We or third-parties acting on our behalf do and will continue to disclose your Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties in the following circumstances:

  1. if required by law, regulatory or court order, or legal process;

  2. if we determine that doing so would be in the public interest (i.e., if we were to suspect that you were using our website in connection with the commission of a crime);

  3. in connection with a sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of substantial assets, reorganization, or liquidation of our company;

  4. it is necessary to allow our service providers, representatives, or agents to provide services for or to us;

  5. to provide you with certain services on our website that are provided by such parties, as reasonably required to provide such services and;

  6. in the context of working with third-party contractors engaged by us in the provision of our website or related matters.

After we or third-parties acting on our behalf disclose your Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties in such instances, we can no longer control the use or further disclosure of your Personal Information. Consequently, we or third-parties acting on our behalf will not be responsible to you for such use or further disclosure.

We occasionally contract with other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including answering customer questions about products or services. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

We appreciate your questions and feedback about our website and welcome your email messages to mailboxes listed on our website.  We will share those messages with those parties both within and outside LIKECHARITY who may be able to address the issues contained in your message.  We will keep a copy of your message until we have had an opportunity to address your concerns.  We may archive your message for a certain period of time or discard it, but your email message will not be used for any other purpose.

How We Secure Your Personal Information
We and third-parties acting on our behalf take precautions involving physical, electronic, and managerial controls to protect from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, and alteration any of your Personal Information in our possession. We or third-parties acting on our behalf may employ industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer encryption when requesting certain financial Personal Information from you. We or third-parties acting on our behalf do not, however, use such encryption during your day-to-day use of our website. You should note that the confidentiality of any information transmitted over the Internet cannot be guaranteed.

Links to Other Websites
For your convenience, we may provide links to other websites and web pages that we do not control. We cannot control and are not responsible for the actions of third parties operating such sites. You should not take the existence of an affiliation with, or a link from, our website to any such other site to mean that it has a privacy policy similar to this one. You should review the privacy policy of any such site.
