You may freely visit our Site anonymously and without being required to provide us with any personal information. However, certain requests do require that you provide us with some personally identifying information as more particularly described below. Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact you. Please do not send confidential information to us directly through this Site, or by email to any of the contact email addresses listed on this Site. Please note that for United States residents, we only collect personal information directly from you when you provide it to us (please see the GDPR caveats below).
Examples of instances in which we may collect personal information include:
Visit.org Philanthropic Foundation uses information collected as necessary for the facilitation and performance of our Services; to comply with our legal and contractual obligations; and to support our legitimate interests in maintaining and improving our Services; providing customer service and technical support; and protecting and securing our users, Partners, ourselves and our Services.
Specifically, we use personal data for the following purposes:
We do not sell your personal information.
Data Location: Your personal data may be maintained, processed and stored by us and our authorized Service Providers (defined below) in multiple locations, including in the United States and Europe, and the Philippines, as reasonably necessary for the proper performance and delivery of our Services, or as may be required by law.
Data Retention: We will retain your personal data for as long as it is reasonably necessary for us to maintain our relationship with you and provide you with our Services and offerings; in order to comply with our legal and contractual obligations; or to protect ourselves from, or defend, any potential or actual disputes (i.e. as required by laws applicable to log-keeping, records and bookkeeping, and in order to have proof and evidence concerning our relationship, should any legal issues arise following your discontinuance of use), all in accordance with our contractual terms and data retention policy.
Please note that except as required by applicable law or our specific agreements with you, we will not be obligated to retain your personal data for any particular period, and we are free to securely delete it or restrict access to it for any reason and at any time, with or without notice to you. If you have any questions about our data retention policy, please contact us by e-mail at email@example.com
Legal Compliance: In exceptional circumstances, we may disclose or allow government and law enforcement officials access to your personal data, in response to a subpoena, search warrant or court order (or similar requirement) and where such disclosure is necessary to comply with applicable laws and regulations. Such disclosure or access may occur if we believe in good faith that: (a) we are legally compelled to do so; or (b) disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding actual or suspected illegal activity, fraud, or other wrongdoing; or (c) such disclosure is required to protect the security or integrity of our Services.
Service Providers: We engage selected third-party companies and individuals to perform services complementary to our own. Such service providers hosting and server co-location services, communications and content delivery networks (CDNs), billing and payment processing services, data and cyber security services, fraud detection and prevention services, web and mobile analytics, e-mail, text messages and web/mobile notification distribution, monitoring and analytics services, data optimization and marketing services, social and advertising networks, content providers, e-mail, voicemails, support and customer relation management systems, call and session recording services, and our legal, financial and compliance advisors (collectively, “Service Providers“).
Our Service Providers are ‘data processors’ in circumstances where we assume the role of ‘data controller’; and where we act as the ‘data processor’ for our Corporate Partner, the Service Provider is our ‘sub-processor’ (as further described in Section 9 below).
Sharing Personal Data with our Corporate Partners: We may share donation information, including count of employees who have donated, donation amounts, and organizations donated to, with the Corporate Partner who owns the account.
Sharing Personal Data with our Nonprofit Partners: We may share your name and donation amount with the Nonprofit Partners receiving the donation should you choose to share it with them.
We may share your personal data in additional manners, pursuant to your explicit approval, or if we are legally obligated to do so, or if we have successfully rendered such data non-personal and anonymous. We may transfer, share or otherwise use non-personal data at our sole discretion and without the need for further approval.
Service Communications: We may send you notifications (through any of the means available to us, including by email, SMS and mobile notifications) of changes or updates to our Services, billing issues, service changes, etc. You can control some of these notifications settings. However, please note that you will not be able to opt-out of receiving certain service communications which are integral to the operation of our Services (like billing notices).
We maintain – and ask that any third-party partners who may store information on our behalf to maintain – administrative, technical and physical safeguards for the Site designed to protect your personal information against theft, loss, misuse or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the personal information that we collect from you. However, no website, application or transmission can guarantee security. Thus, while we have established and maintain what we believe to be reasonable procedures to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of personally identifying information obtained through the Site and we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
Individuals have rights concerning their Personal Data. If you wish to exercise your privacy rights under any applicable law, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) such as the right to request access to, and rectification or erasure of your Personal Data held by Visit.org Philanthropic Foundation, or to restrict or object to your Personal Data’s processing, or to exercise your rights to portability with respect to your Personal Data (each to the extent available to you under the laws which apply to you) – please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may redact from the data which we will make available to you, any personal data related to others.
Certain data protection laws and regulations, such as the GDPR, typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing Personal Data: the “data controller” (or under the CCPA, “business”), who determines the purposes and means of processing; and the “data processor” (or under the CCPA, “service provider”), who processes the data on behalf of the data controller (or business). Below we explain how these roles apply to our Services, to the extent that such laws and regulations apply.
Our Services are not designed to be used by children under the age of 18: We do not knowingly collect personal data from children and do not wish to do so. If we learn that a person under the age of 18 is using the Services, we will attempt to prohibit and block such use and will make our best efforts to promptly delete any personal data stored with us with regard to such child. If you believe that we might have any such data, please contact us by e-mail at email@example.com.
