Welcome to www.givingpilot.com, a website provided by Giving Pilot, LLC, a New York limited liability company, ("Giving Pilot") that includes, among other things, Giving Pilot’s fundraising platform services, (the “Site”). Giving Pilot respects your privacy, and this policy covers Giving Pilot’s protection, transfer, use, and processing of certain information collected from you through the Site or other sources in the ordinary course of Giving Pilot’s business.
You should review this policy carefully, and be sure you understand it, prior to using the Site or otherwise providing any information to Giving Pilot. Your use of the Site, providing any information to Giving Pilot, or any other indication of your assent, is deemed to be acceptance by you of this policy. If you do not agree to this policy, you should not use, and should immediately terminate your use of, the Site and not otherwise provide any information to Giving Pilot. For purposes of this Section, accessing the Site only to review this policy is not deemed to be use of the Site.
In this policy:
(b) “Collected Information” means all (i) Personal Information and (ii) Non-Personal Information;
(c) “Non-Personal Information” means all information collected by Giving Pilot, whether electronically or manually, through (i) the Site, (ii) email messages and other electronic communications that you may send to Giving Pilot, and (iii) other sources in the ordinary course of Giving Pilot’s business that is not Personal Information (including, but not limited to, any Analytical Information); and
(d) “Personal Information” means all information collected by Giving Pilot, whether electronically or manually, through (i) the Site, (ii) email messages and other electronic communications that you may send to Giving Pilot, and (iii) other sources in the ordinary course of Giving Pilot’s business that identifies, or can be used in conjunction with other readily-accessible information to identify, such individual (including, but not limited to, name, email address, physical address, phone number, credit card, debit card, or bank account number, and human resource data relating to employees of Giving Pilot, or any individuals applying for employment).
No Collected Information is obtained from you, unless it is voluntarily provided, except for any Collected Information obtained automatically through the Site as set forth in this policy. Regardless of the method used to obtain Collected Information, Giving Pilot will only collect and retain such Collected Information in its primary and backup files to an extent that is consistent with the purposes for which it was provided and for Giving Pilot’s other legitimate business purposes (including, but not limited to, marketing). You are responsible for obtaining any approvals, authorizations, consents, permissions and permits that are required in connection with your providing Giving Pilot with any information (including, but not limited to, any information relating to a third party).
You may refuse to provide any information to Giving Pilot at any time by terminating your use of the Site, or in all other cases not involving use of the Site, by notifying Giving Pilot as set forth in Section 19. If you refuse to provide any information when requested to do so by Giving Pilot or the Site, you may not be able to access, or otherwise receive the benefits of, certain products and services from Giving Pilot or features of the Site.
You may from time-to-time send Giving Pilot an email message in connection with your use of the Site, or in the ordinary course of business. If you do, Collected Information may include, but will not be limited to, your email address and the contents of your message. Your email address and the contents of your message will be used by Giving Pilot to respond to you, to send you follow-up messages, and for other legitimate business purposes (including, but not limited to, marketing). Whether or not you have previously sent Giving Pilot an email message, you consent to Giving Pilot sending you email messages and other electronic communications (a) in connection with your use of the Site, (b) in the ordinary course of business, or (c) for any other legitimate business purpose (including, but not limited to, marketing). Since Giving Pilot endeavors to send email messages and other electronic communications only to individuals desiring to receive them, you can unsubscribe to such email messages or other electronic communications at any time by contacting Giving Pilot as set forth in Section 19 or by following the directions (if any) contained in such email messages or other electronic communications. Any request to unsubscribe to email or other electronic communications will be effective promptly after your request is received by Giving Pilot.
When you access the Site, Giving Pilot will collect Analytical Information either directly or through third parties acting on its behalf. Your browser may provide you with the ability to not accept cookies, as well as the ability to delete already-existing cookies. If you refuse, or delete previously-existing cookies, you may not be able to receive the benefits of certain features of the Site. Analytical Information will only be used by Giving Pilot (a) to record your use of the Site, (b) to diagnose problems with the Site, (c) to improve the Site and make the Site more useful to you and other users, and (d) for other legitimate business purposes of Giving Pilot (including, but not limited to, marketing).
Except as provided in the immediately following sentence, Giving Pilot will use commercially reasonable measures to protect Personal Information from loss and unauthorized access, alteration, destruction, disclosure, and use. Certain Personal Information posted by you on the Site may be accessible to the general public, and Giving Pilot is not responsible for protecting such Personal Information from loss or unauthorized access, alteration, destruction, disclosure, or use. For example, if you participate in any public forum on the Site, any information disclosed by you when doing so may be available to the general public. Also, since no transmission of information over the Internet or electronic storage of information is completely secure, it is possible that Collected Information could be lost or accessed, altered, destroyed, disclosed, or used without authorization despite Giving Pilot’s commercially reasonable measures to protect such information. In providing information to Giving Pilot, you must assume the risk that Collected Information could be lost or accessed, altered, destroyed, disclosed, or used without authorization.
All Collected Information may be used by Giving Pilot for any legitimate business purpose (including, but not limited to, marketing), unless expressly stated otherwise in this policy. If Giving Pilot expressly states in writing that any Collected Information will only be used for a specific purpose, Giving Pilot will only use it for such purpose, unless you subsequently consent to its being used for another purpose.
Any Collected Information obtained by Giving Pilot, whether or not for a specific purpose, may be transferred to third parties designated by Giving Pilot (including, but not limited to, any affiliates, distributors, sub-contractors, or vendors of Giving Pilot engaged by Giving Pilot to perform administrative and technological functions) for any purposes for which Giving Pilot could use such Collected Information. If Collected Information is so transferred, Giving Pilot will be responsible for such third parties’ compliance with Giving Pilot’s obligations pursuant to this policy. Giving Pilot may also at any time, in its sole discretion, transfer any Collected Information (including, but not limited to, a computer’s Internet protocol address), whether or not you furnished such Collected Information for a specific purpose, to (a) comply with, or as permitted by, any applicable law or lawful request of a government or public authority for purposes of satisfying, among other things, national security or law enforcement requirements, (b) cooperate with law enforcement, and other third parties, in investigating a claim of fraud, illegal activity, or infringement of intellectual property rights, (c) protect the rights, property or legitimate business interests of Giving Pilot or a third party, or (d) transfer such Collected Information to a third party acquiring all, or substantially all, of Giving Pilot’s assets. If Collected Information is so transferred, Giving Pilot will have no responsibility for any action of the third party to whom or which such Collected Information is transferred.
Upon your request, Giving Pilot will grant you access to your Personal Information, and take other action, as required by any applicable law. You must contact Giving Pilot in writing for this purpose as set forth in Section 19.
The Site is not intended for children under 13 years of age. However, if a parent or guardian of a child who is under 13 years of age discovers that Personal Information of such child has been submitted to Giving Pilot through the Site without the parent’s or guardian’s consent, Giving Pilot will use commercially reasonable efforts to remove such information from the Site and Giving Pilot servers at the parent’s or guardian’s request. To request the removal of Personal Information, the parent or guardian must contact Giving Pilot as set forth in Section 19, and provide all information requested by Giving Pilot to assist it in identifying the Personal Information to be removed.
This policy is governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its principles of conflict of laws.
Any complaint by you regarding Collected Information, or otherwise relating to this policy, must first be submitted to Giving Pilot as set forth in Section 19, and Giving Pilot must be given a reasonable opportunity of not less than 45 days to investigate and respond to your complaint. Upon Giving Pilot’s completing such investigation and so responding, Giving Pilot and you must then attempt, in good faith, to promptly resolve any remaining aspects of your complaint. If any aspect of your complaint remains unresolved after an additional reasonable period of time of not less than 45 days you may commence litigation against Giving Pilot in connection with the unresolved portion of your complaint only in a court located in Erie County, New York and having subject matter jurisdiction over your complaint. You consent to any such court’s being a proper venue for your complaint, and waive any objection thereto based on inconvenience.
Except as set forth in this Section, this policy contains the entire agreement, and supersedes all prior oral and written agreements, proposals and understandings, between you and Giving Pilot, with respect to Collected Information. If you use the Site or otherwise have business dealings with Giving Pilot, such use or dealings will be subject to this policy, plus any other written agreement between the parties that is applicable thereto. To the extent there is any conflict or inconsistency between any provision of this policy and any provision of such other agreement, the former shall control.
Whenever possible, each provision of this policy shall be interpreted to be effective and valid under applicable law. If, however, any such provision shall be prohibited by or invalid under such law, it shall be deemed modified to conform to the minimum requirements of such law, or if for any reason it is not so modified, it shall be prohibited or invalid only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity without the remainder of such provision, or any other provision of this policy, being prohibited or invalid.
Giving Pilot may revise any provision of this policy from time-to-time by posting the revised provision on the Site. Any such revision will take effect immediately upon such posting, and will apply to all Collected Information obtained by Giving Pilot after such posting, unless any different effective date is required under any applicable law. It is your responsibility to periodically check this policy on the Site for revisions to this policy.
Except as provided in this policy, or any applicable law, you are solely responsible for all fees and disbursements of any attorney or other advisor retained by you in connection with enforcing your rights under this policy.
