CafeGive Privacy Policy

Updated: October 24, 2014

Our goal at CafeGive is to provide you with a secure and effective way to tell your giving story, create awareness and raise money for the causes you believe in. We take the privacy of our customers and the security of their personal information very seriously.

  • Our Privacy Policy explains how we and some of the companies we work with collect, use, share and protect information in relation to our mobile services, web site, and any software provided on or in connection with CafeGive applications and services (“Service”) and your choices about the collection and use of your information.
  • By using our Service you understand and agree that we are providing a platform for you to post content, including photos, videos, volunteer hours, comments and other materials ("User Content"), to the Service and to share User Content publicly. This means that other Users may search for, see, use, or share any of your User Content that you make publicly available through the Service, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service.
  • Our Policy applies to all visitors, users, and others who access the Service ("Users").
What Information We Collect and Why

To create and manage campaigns, you must register and create a CafeGive account. During registration, we require members to give us basic contact information: your name and email address. When you register, you will also be asked to create a user name and password for your account so as to protect your personal information.

Our registration information may change from time to time but only information marked with a "required" is necessary for registration.

If you participate in a promotion or campaign using our Service, we may ask for your billing information in order to process the transaction, if that is part of the promotion.

Who Sees This Information

Only a very limited number of CafeGive employees ever have access to your personal information. This information is primarily accessed to provide customer service.

We may use contractors or vendors to help us provide some of the services at our site, such as WePay to process credit card transactions. If we need to disclose personal information to them for the services, it is a requirement that the information be kept confidential and only used for those services.

How We Keep Your Information Secure

The security of your personal information is important to us. At CafeGive, we follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. Our security measures include firewalls, encryption during internet transmission, password protections and vulnerability scans.

CafeGive does not collect sensitive information such as your social security number or credit card numbers. Where transactions are part of the campaign, CafeGive utilizes WePay to process credit card information, and as such, WePay is solely responsible for the privacy and security of credit card information.. Any sensitive information that CafeGive may have access to, we protect using encryption during internet transmission, restricted access and secure storage.

Your Privacy with CafeGive

CafeGive will never ask for your username, password or any other personal information in an unsolicited phone call, email or letter. Further, any contact with CafeGive customer service in which personal information is exchanged with a customer service representative will be used only for the purpose of satisfying that request. Any personal information you provide will not be recorded or used for any reason beyond that of the stated request without your consent.

Campaigns or promotions running on the Service contain links to various other sites. Each of these sites has a privacy policy that may differ from that of CafeGive. The privacy practices of other websites linked to from CafeGive are not covered by this privacy policy.

CafeGive will not disclose any of your personal information to causes without your consent. If you are participating in a campaign, you may opt-in to have your donation shared with the benefitting cause.

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site or to protect CafeGive and its members from losses.

CafeGive cannot and does not assume any responsibility for any actions or omissions of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received from users of the CafeGive website. Nevertheless, in the event users encounter any third party associated with, or who claims association with CafeGive, who is improperly collecting or using personal information, please Contact Us.

Parties with whom you may choose to share your User Content

Any information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Service, such as User Content, becomes available to the public. Once you have shared User Content or made it public, that User Content may be re-shared by others. Any User Content that you make public is searchable by other Users and may also be aggregated with other Users by the Service to summarize a group or organization’s giving in products like Social Impact Profile TM.
