IP Addresses

We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems, to administer our website, and to gather demographic information. We may also use IP addresses or other information, such as your DonorsImpact.com user information you have shared on this website or at any earlier occasion, to determine which pages on our sites are being visited and topics that may be of interest so we can provide you with information about relevant products and services. Generally, Donors Impact will aggregate such data only in an anonymous way and will not tie it to a particular individual unless he or she has given consent. When you visit our site, we recognize only your domain name.

This information is collected when you connect to Donors Impact so that we may identify your session, deliver content based on the technical capabilities of your browser, and for quality control purposes. Your IP address will not be used to identify you unless you provide your prior consent.

Donors Impact will only gather information related to your visit to the Donors Impact site. We do not track or collect personal information from your visits to companies or entities outside the Donors Impact company.

 

Automated Tools

In addition to the information you provide, Donors Impact may also collect information during your visit to the Donors Impact website through automated tools, which include Web beacons, cookies, embedded Web links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools. These tools collect certain standard information that your browser sends to our website such as your browser type and language, access times, and the address of the website from which you arrived at the Donors Impact website. Using these tools, Donors Impact is also able to confirm receipt of e-mails that the recipient consented to receive, and can track other information such as pages visited on the Donors Impact site and whether or not the recipient registers for an event offered by Donors Impact and certain other aggregate data that is not related to a particular individual.

 

Embedded Web Links

Emails from Donors Impact often use links designed to lead you to a relevant area on the Web, after redirection through Donors Impact's servers. The redirection system allows Donors Impact to change the destination URL of these links, if necessary, and to determine the effectiveness of our marketing initiatives. In emails, such links may also allow Donors Impact to determine if you have clicked on a link in the email, and the information about this interaction may be connected to your personal identity. If you do not want Donors Impact to collect information about the links you clicked, you can simply choose not to click on the links in an e-mail that Donors Impact sends you.

 

Cookies

We use cookies to deliver personalized content, to save you having to re-enter your password repeatedly, to keep track of your shopping cart, and to tailor our information offerings to how you and others use the site.

 

E-mail Addresses

If you choose to give us your e-mail address, we will communicate with you via e-mail. We do not share your e-mail address with others outside the Donors Impact company. You can choose not to receive any more e-mail at any time. Depending on how your e-mail application is set up, information about you may be transmitted automatically when you send e-mail to Donors Impact.

 

Sharing Your Personal Data

As a global company, Donors Impact operates a number of Web sites around the world. Any data and information that you volunteer or that is otherwise collected on one of our sites in any one country may be sent electronically to a server for one of these sites in another country. We safeguard your privacy interests around the world by ensuring that this Donors Impact site adheres to our data protection principles described in this statement. We do not sell or rent your personal data to third parties for marketing purposes unless you have granted us permission to do so. We may respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process by disclosing your personal data and other related information, if necessary. We also may choose to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We may collect and possibly share personal data and any other additional information available to us in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Donors Impact's terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

 

Security of Your Personal Data

Donors Impact is committed to protecting the personal data you share with us. Donors Impact uses a combination of industry-standard security technologies, procedures, and organizational measures to help protect your personal data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Donors Impact supports online security using secure server technology because we want your data to be safe. There are state-of-the-art security arrangements and facilities on Donors Impact.com to prevent abuse. We bind our employees to observe your privacy and confidentiality rights.

 

Choice/Opt-Out

We communicate with users who subscribe to our services on a regular basis via email, and we may also communicate by phone to resolve customer complaints or investigate suspicious transactions. We may use your email address to confirm your opening of an account, to send you notice of payments, to send you information about changes to our products and services, and to send notices and other disclosures as required by law. Generally, users cannot opt out of these communications, but they will be primarily informational in nature rather than promotional. Donors Impact provides you the opportunity to exercise an opt-out choice if you do not want to receive other types of communication from us such as emails or updates from us regarding new services and products offered on this website or if you do not want us to share your personal information with third parties. The opt-out choice may be exercised by updating your user profile or unsubscribing by emailing us at info@donorsimpact.com.

 

Data Retention

Donors Impact will not retain your personal data longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations.

 

Inquiries, Access and Updating Your Personal Data

Donors Impact needs your help in keeping the personal data you have shared with us accurate and up to date. If you are a registered user, you may make these updates yourself online via your user profile. You may also make these updates or other changes by sending an email to info@donorsimpact.com.
