PlanG Internet Privacy Policy

Date Last Modified: September 20, 2013

1.1 Introduction

PlanG helps individuals manage and grow their giving to the nonprofits they care about most. PlanG brings everyone with a charitable impulse together into one powerful giving community. That includes nonprofits, corporations, employers, retailers and determined individuals. We’re creating sustainable philanthropy by providing a space where giving is easy and generous gestures go further than ever before.

At PlanG, it’s all about you. The causes you care about. How you want to give. Who you want to join forces with. PlanG lets you express your generosity in a way that’s more personal, more efficient, and more gratifying than anything you’ve experienced before.

1.2 About this Policy

PlanG developed this Internet Privacy Policy (hereafter, “Policy”) to demonstrate our commitment to protecting the privacy of the people we interact with online. We highly value and respect the privacy of the Personal Information (as defined below) we obtain from you in connection with your use of PlanG’s online resources, including your name, phone number, email address, billing or mailing address, banking or financial information, and other information that can be used to individually identify you (collectively, “Personal Information”). This Policy applies to PlanG resources and communications (such as PlanG websites, email communications, mobile applications and other online tools). This Policy is a part of PlanG’s Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy, which are available here.

1.3 Information Collected About Your Computer or other Device

As part of the operation of our websites, our computers collect information about the computer or other device you use to access our websites. This information may include, for example, the type of web browser your computer uses, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your device. We may use this information in the aggregate to measure and monitor the effectiveness of our website and for other purposes. This information does not identify you personally.

PlanG may also use website tracking technologies, such as cookies, that are used to provide additional website functionality and improve the value of your website visit. Unless you have registered on our websites or otherwise volunteered Personal Information to us, these tracking technologies do not identify you personally.

We retain information collected in this manner for the period of time necessary to support the purposes for which it was collected.

1.4 Information You Volunteer

We do not collect Personal Information about you without your knowledge. When you register with PlanG and create a Giving Account, you will provide us with certain Personal Information. This may include your name, address, telephone number, email address, mailing or billing address, banking or financial information, interests and other similar types of information. We collect and retain this information for the general purposes of fulfilling your requests for products and services, to improve our services, to contact you and to conduct research. PlanG will only use this information in the ways specified when it is collected.

PlanG websites may permit you to make choices about the disclosure and/or transfer of your Personal Information. In most cases, PlanG will ask you to indicate your choices at the time and on the page where you provide your information. As examples, when you make a donation to a specific charity or participate in a fundraiser, PlanG usually provides your name, address, email address to the charity and/or host of the fundraiser, but you can choose to make your donation anonymous, and no Personal Information will be provided to the charity or the host of the fundraiser.

You may volunteer to provide Personal Information to PlanG online through other mechanisms. This might include, for example, clicking a “Contact Us” link or using email or other online tools to provide feedback, data, questions, comments, suggestions, or the like. In these cases, please be aware that PlanG will consider such information to be unsolicited, non-confidential and non-proprietary. Receipt of such information shall not in any way prevent or restrict the use by PlanG of products or services based upon or similar to the information provided. Unless otherwise specified or agreed upon, PlanG shall not have any obligation to compensate any party for any information provided through this web site.

PlanG retains Personal Information as long as necessary to provide the services, products and information you request or as permitted by applicable law.

1.5 Sharing Personally Identifiable Information

PlanG is the sole owner of Personal Information collected through its websites and will not sell this information to third parties without your prior consent. This information may be accessible across PlanG and to other individuals and organizations using this information solely at PlanG ‘s direction. Any such access and use will be done in a manner consistent with this Policy.

In certain limited circumstances PlanG may be compelled to transfer Personal Information to unrelated third parties. For example, we may provide information to a third party (i) at your request, (ii) to comply with a legal requirement or court order; (iii) to investigate a possible crime, such as identity theft; (iv) in connection with the sale, purchase, merger, reorganization, liquidation or dissolution of PlanG or a PlanG business unit; or (v) under similar circumstances. If such an event occurs, we will take appropriate steps to protect your Personal Information.

1.6 Securing Personally Identifiable Information

Your Personal Information will generally be stored in PlanG databases or databases maintained by our service providers. PlanG maintains commercially acceptable practices to reasonably safeguard and protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of your Personal Information. Although we use security measures to help protect your Personal Information against unauthorized disclosure, misuse or alteration, as is the case with all computer networks linked to the Internet, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the Internet and will not be responsible for breaches of security beyond our reasonable control.
