Privacy Policy

This privacy policy (this “Privacy Policy”) tells you about the information that CauseEngine (“CE,” “we” or “our”) collects in connection with the operation of its website, (the “Site”), how the information is used and how you can access and correct certain information that we may collect.

Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to information collected from you by CE via the Site and does not apply to information obtained or disclosed through other technology devices such as payment kiosks, offline correspondence or personal contacts with CE representatives.  Further, the Site may utilize certain third-party application program interfaces (APIs) or contain advertisements and/or links to other entities’ websites that are not controlled or operated by CE.  This Privacy Policy does not apply to such third party websites or APIs, and CE is not responsible for the content of such third party websites or APIs or the privacy practices of such third parties.  Therefore, we encourage you to request and review the privacy policies of any third parties upon disclosing your information to such parties or visiting such third party websites.

This Privacy Policy is effective as of August 17th, 2015 (the “Effective Date”).

INFORMATION COLLECTED AND HOW WE USE IT
You always remain in control of the information you provide to CE.  We collect two types of information about visitors: personally identifiable information (such as name, address, telephone number, email address, account history if you have an account with us, etc.), which you have voluntarily submitted to us, and aggregate information (such as information about how many visitors log on to our sites, the pages they access, etc.).

In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing personal information about yourself.  We collect, maintain and use personal information you have voluntarily submitted to contact you, including via email, to respond to your comments or requests for information, or to contact you if needed in the course of providing information about our services that you may have requested.  In addition, we may use personal information to provide you the most helpful and targeted products and services to meet your needs and respond to your inquiries.  To better meet your needs, we may supplement the information we collect with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes.

DATA SHARING AND TRANSFER.
CE will not trade, sell or share your personal information for use by any third party without your consent, unless required by law or as disclosed to you when the information is collected.  CE reserves the right to disclose your personally identifiable information based on the good faith belief that such action is necessary or appropriate to: (a) protect and defend the rights or property of CE, or (b) act in urgent circumstances to protect the safety or security of the public or of users of CE’s services and/or the Site.

 

Your personal information will generally be stored in the CE databases, which are located in the United States. However, the CE uses third-party APIs to collect and store your credit card or financial information, to provide customer service and sales support and to manage communications within the site. In situations where we rely on a third-party API, we cannot guarantee the security protocols utilized by such third parties, although we do our best to vet these services.  Our policy is to make all reasonable efforts ensure that your information is always granted the same level of protection no matter where it is stored.  In the event that the CE is involved in a transaction such as a merger, stock purchase or sale, or sale of substantially all of CE’s assets, your personal information may be transferred to the other party in such transaction.

 

USE OF YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

Upon our collection of your personally identifiable information, CE may use such personally identifiable information internally, separately or in combination with pre-existing information, for the following purposes:

 

·                               To provide any requested services;

·                               To troubleshoot problems with the Site, or any services, as requested;

·                               To customize your experience or homepage on the Site;

·                               To enforce our Terms of Use; or
