1. Types of Information We Collect
Information you give us. We collect the information you voluntarily provide to us, such as the following:
Registration information. If you sign up for a TMF account or visit the Site to download your donation receipt, we may collect certain personal information from you, meaning information about you that can uniquely identify you such as your name, address, telephone number and email address (“personal information”), if you choose to provide us with such information. Upon registration, we may also collect information about you that does not uniquely identify you, such as information related to your account settings and preferences, if you choose to provide us with such information.
Donations. When you donate to your selected charities, we may collect personal information and non-personal information about you as necessary to report and receipt your donations.
Information from other sources.
Usage and Device Information. When you access and use the Services, we may collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies and web beacons. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected devices to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, is used to transmit information back to a web server. We also may use third-party website analytics tools that collect information about visitor traffic on the Services. The information we may collect by automated means may include (i) usage information such as your IP address, browser information and other information related to your visit to and use of the Services; and (ii) information about the device you use to access and use the Services, such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers and mobile network information including your phone number. All usage and device information may be associated with your TMF account.
Location Information. When you access and use the Services using a mobile device, we may collect and process information about your actual location through GPS signals or other technologies that determine location, including, but not limited to device latitude/longitude, accuracy, heading, speed, and altitude, cell tower, and Wi-Fi access point information. All location information may be associated with your TMF account.
If you consent to provide TMF, or our third-party partners, with your location information, we monitor, collect and use your wireless location information, as well as other information obtained from our platform and your device, to provide you with Services. This information may include but is not limited to GPS data (including, but not limited to device latitude/longitude, accuracy, heading, speed, and altitude), cell tower and Wi-Fi access point information. You can use your wireless device to obtain a wide array of services based on the approximate location of the device, referred to as Location-Based Services, or LBS. The information you receive in connection with your use of LBS may include information related to your designated charity. When you participate in an LBS campaign, you will receive prior notice and must give your consent before your location is used or shared.
We will provide information related to you and your donation to your designated charity or their appointed third party partner.
We may release information necessary to comply with law; enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of TMF, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
We may engage other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf and will provide information necessary to perform their functions. (For example: research and education data analysis, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service.)
If you wish to opt-out or unsubscribe to any service or charitable campaign, please contact us through email, facsimile or US Mail as provided below. In addition, to opt-out, you can simply send “STOP” to the campaign shortcode.
