Personal information is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person.
We hold a minimal amount of information on each registered Give as you Live™ (GAYL™) user in order to allow users to log into and to transact with third party merchants on-line. We will also keep accounts updated with donation payment levels. Registered GAYL™ users may update their account details online by following the relevant links from within their account pane. When you download the GAYL™ App, we only require first name, last name, an email address, screen name (and a password) and the name of the cause you wish to support.
Your online shopping will also generate search data in the form of the merchants you are buying from, contact preferences, and the purchases you are making. We will treat this search data as confidential to you and will not disclose it to third parties.
We do not pass users details on to third parties, unless specifically requested to do so by the users; or where we may pass your details on to the merchants or their agents for verification of transactions only; and for fraud prevention measures. These details passed on will not be used for marketing or any other purposes.
We do not send junk email or spam. We may send emails with GAYL™ Website updates, information or offers, but users will be able to specify the type of emails received.
In order to allocate funds to your cause of choice as a result of your use of the GAYL™ App we may collect anonymous information about your search terms that you input on browsers and other web-sites. For example, we may use website analytics tools on our site to retrieve information from your browser, including the site you came from, the search engine(s) and the keywords you used to find our site, the pages you view within our site, your browser add-ons and your browser's width and height. We may also use technologies, such as cookies and web beacons (described below), to collect information about the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on our sites and services. Additionally, we collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses. This information is not stored by us or monitored in any way other than to drive the equivalent search in the GAYL™ App. This information is never passed on to third parties.
We may use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Everyclick's products, services, and customer communications.Collection and use of non-personal information
We also collect non-personal information - data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual.
We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
- Related statistics in the form of the number of searches and volume of on-line transactions to specific third party sites will be collected by Everyclick for the purpose of data analysis. This data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Everyclick and our partners and GAYL™ licensees to provide and improve products and services
- Monitor traffic patterns in order to improve our services, to help monitor purchases and commissions and keep accounts up to date
If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.Cookies and other technologies
We recommend that all users enable cookies in their browsers in order to make full use of the sites they choose to visit and in order to ensure that any purchases on third party sites are recorded. For Give as you Live™ to work it is essential that cookies are enabled otherwise no shopping activity will be tracked.
Cookies are small pieces of data or information that are stored by a users browser onto their hard-drive. The information cannot be seen by any other website (so the information is secure) and is used by us to provide features to aid the use of our services. If users do not have cookies enabled, it is likely that third-party retailers will not record some of their purchases.
Like most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information to understand and analyse trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behaviour on the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Everyclick may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.
In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Everyclick website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.
Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format GAYL™ users can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to GAYL™ users.Disclosure to third parties
