Information We Collect:
We collect information to provide a better Service to all of our users. In some circumstances, certain users choose to interact with our Service in ways that require Charity Footprints to gather personally identifiable information. In other circumstances, Charity Footprints, like most website operators, will collect non-personally identifiable information. We use this information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of a visitor’s interaction with the Service.
When you register for an account with our Service (a “Charity Footprints Account” or “Account”), we receive and store personally identifiable information you enter or provide to us in any other way. The types of personal information collected may include your name, date of birth, electronic mail address, health or physical conditions, contents posted by user in Charity Footprints Site or Application, URL, phone number, Twitter, Facebook and/or other SNS usernames, address and zip code, location, and any other data that is tied to such information (collectively, the “Personal Information”). We will not disclose Personal Information other than as described in this Policy. Of course, you can always refuse to provide Personal Information, but doing so may prevent you from using some or all of our Service.
When you log in to a Charity Footprints Account and interact with our Service, we may automatically collect and store information that has the potential to be personally identifiable, such as your Internet Protocol (IP address). We only use and disclose user IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose Personal Information under this Policy.
When using a part of our Service, we may also collect non-personally identifiable information related to which part of our Service you are using and how you are using it, like when you view and interact with text, graphics, images, music, software (excluding the Application), audio, video, information and other materials (collectively “Content”). The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of your interaction with our Service. For example, web browsers and servers typically make available certain non-personally identifiable information like system activity, hardware settings, Internet protocol address, browser type, browser language, date and time of a visitor’s request and referral URL, and other technologies. This information may be stored on our server logs. We collect this information in order to better understand how our visitors interact with and use our Service, and to improve our Service.
Charity Footprints Accounts:
When you create a Charity Footprints Account, users in your network may connect with you via Charity Footprints Buddy feature, Team Goal Feature or any other Application or Web Portal Features. Using these features or seeking sponsorship for your individual or team goals may result in sharing of your Personal Information with your connections or other members of your Team Goal or Goal sponsors. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and we encourage users to think carefully about what information you want to disclose about yourself. In addition to Personal Information, information related to your workouts including but not limited to your location, speed, time and other workout details will be shared with your connections as well as team members of your team goals.
How We Use The Information We Collect:
We use information we collect through the Service in order to provide, maintain, protect, and improve our Service, as well as to protect Charity Footprints and our users and visitors. We also use this information to provide users with tailored Content.
Personal Information about our users is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone, except as described in this Policy. We use your Personal Information for such purposes as improving the content of the Service, customizing the Content you see, and communicating with you about specials and new features. We may also draw upon this Personal Information in order to adapt the Service and our community to your needs, to research the effectiveness of our network and Service, and to develop new tools for the community and to improve our marketing and promotional efforts.
We provide some of our services through affiliates, service providers, partners and other third parties. We, and our service partners, may use your personal information to operate our Web Portals and to deliver their services. These affiliates and third party service providers are not permitted to use personal information for any purposes other than to complete the order, assist you in participating in the particular service or promotional program, and communicating with you. We will encourage our service partners to adopt and post privacy policies. However, the use of your personal information by our service partners is governed by the privacy policies of those service partners, and is not subject to our control.
We employ Reverse geo-coding and user’s IP address or saved location information in order to provide users specialized route and event content.
We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners and connected sites. We only use this data in aggregate for business and administrative purposes, and for the purposes of performing statistical analyses on user behavior and characteristics, and for improving the Service. For example, we may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors interacting with our Web Portal, Application, and Service; we may monitor the most activities of our Service users; and/or we may display this information publicly or provide it to others, like through the publication of a report on usage trends of visitors.
We may transfer Personal Information as an asset in connection with a proposed or actual merger or sale (including any transfers made as part of an insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding) involving all or part of our business or as part of a corporate reorganization, stock sale or other change in control. In such a circumstance the transferee would be bound by the terms of this Policy.
Mailing List And Referrals:
If you submit your e-mail address to be added to a mailing list, we will use the e-mail address for the sole purpose of sending you announcements and special offers, along with Web Portal and Service updates and feedback solicitations. We use your feedback to improve our Service and our organization. If you choose to provide information about yourself using a feedback or e-mail form on our Web Portal or our direct mailings, we will not use the information for any purpose other than to respond to your inquiry, act on your suggestion or comment, or collect statistical data on how our users interact with our service and other services.
You may choose to provide us with another person’s e-mail address or other contact information, including any social networking site username, in order to share content from the Web Portal or Application or so that person may be invited to register with our Service. We use this information to contact and, if necessary, remind that person about the invitation. By providing us with another person’s e-mail address, you represent to us that you have obtained the consent of that certain person with respect to such disclosure to us of their Personal Information. We may disclose such information if required to do so in order to comply with legal process, as described below.
How Your Personal Information Is Protected:
Your account is password protected for your privacy and security. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password, and limiting access to your computer, phone and browser such as signing off after you have finished accessing your account. We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you, and we follow reasonable technical and management practices to help protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of Personal Information, potentially personally identifiable information, and data stored on our system. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved.
We restrict access to Personal Information to Charity Footprints employees, contractors and agents, or affiliated organizations who need to know this information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to confidentiality obligations. We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
We employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Site-, Application-, and Service-related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics, and improvement of the Site, Application, and Service’s features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Services are used. These third parties may have access to your Personal Information; if they do, this access is only so that they may perform these tasks on our behalf and they are obligated not to disclose or use if for any purpose.

This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.
Our Policy toward Children:
The Service is not directed to individuals under 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with Personal Information without their consent, he or she should contact us.
