1. The Information We Collect
In order to better provide you a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using our Website and all of its features, we collect two types of information about our users: (a) Personally Identifiable Information, and (b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information (together “Personal Information”).
Personally Identifiable Information
When you sign up for or use our products, you voluntarily give us certain information that identifies you, or that can be used to identify you, personally (“Personally Identifiable Information”). Personally Identifiable Information includes, but is not limited to:
- Your name, profile photo, address, telephone number, email address, birth date (primarily for eligibility purposes);
- Information about your health and medical conditions, including your medical treatments and the medications you take;
- Any information in other services that you use and permit us to link to your account on the Website, such as your Facebook, Twitter or Google account.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information is anonymous data that is not associated with you as an individual. It is measured anonymously and only in the aggregate.
We passively collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information about you when you visit the Website through passive technology, such as “cookies” and “web beacons” which are sometimes also referred to as pixel tags or clear gifs.
A cookie is a small piece of information sent by the Website that is saved on your on your hard disk by your computer’s browser. Cookies gather statistical data, such as which pages are visited, the internet provider’s domain name and the addresses of sites you visited immediately before coming to and immediately after leaving the Website. You may decline to accept cookies by following your browser’s instructions. If you disable cookies, however, you may not be able to access certain features of the Website.
Web beacons are invisible files on web pages that you visit. If you visit a page on the Website that contains a web beacon, it communicates with your computer to determine, among other things, whether you have been to that page before or viewed a particular advertisement.
2. How We Use Your Personal Information
We will primarily use your Personally Identifiable Information for the purpose(s) for which it was submitted by you to us, such as to establish an account and profile, invite others to register with us as a supporter of your goals, or to track your progress towards your goals.
Your Personal Information may be also used to contact and communicate with you; inform you about products, services or promotions that may be of interest to you; improve your overall experience when you visit and/or use the features of the Website; measure the effectiveness of the Website and our advertising and marketing programs, and for our research and development of new products and services.
3. How We Share Information
Central to the purpose of the Website is the sharing of information. We will generally limit the availability of your Personally Identifiable Information on the Website to those persons you have authorized to have access to your information, namely your supporters.
We will not share, sell or trade your Personally Identifiable Information with any third parties, except with your consent. For example, we may offer you products, services, or offers of third parties that will ask you to provide personal information; however, you are not under any obligation to do so.
We may disclose your Personal Information, when legally required to do so, to cooperate with law enforcement investigations or other legal proceedings; to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Website; to limit our legal liability and protect our rights, or to protect the rights, property or safety of users of this Website or the public.
In the event that we sell, merge or otherwise transfer all or substantially all of our assets to a third party, or we liquidate our business, we reserve the right to transfer your Personal Information to such third party.
4. How We Protect Your Information
We follow commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and administrative practices to maintain the security of Personal Information, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to data as well as employing electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access.
We do not store or keep any bank or credit card information you enter and transmit through the Website or through any third-party payment processor linked from the Website.
Despite these efforts, the transmission of data over the Internet cannot be guaranteed 100% safe. While we will use every reasonable means to ensure that Personal Information is secure, we cannot guarantee that such information will not be intercepted by third parties. If we discover that your Personal Information has been improperly accessed as a result of a security breach, we will promptly notify you as required by applicable law.
5. Our Other Policies and Practices
We may send you periodic emails regarding our services or the Website, or containing information we believe might be of interest to you. You can opt out of receiving these emails at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions or changing your email preferences in your account.
Emails from other Members and Supporters
By connecting to other Registered Users, or inviting Supporters to support your progress towards your goal, you may receive emails or other electronic communications from these persons. You are not under any obligation to communicate with other Registered Users or Supporters.
Links to Other Websites
Privacy of Children
We will not solicit or knowingly collect Personal Information from children who are under the age of 13.
We may change this policy from time to time, and if we do we’ll post any changes on this page. If you continue to use the Website after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised policy. If the changes are significant, we may provide more prominent notice or get your consent as required by law.
