Our Commitment to Privacy
What Information We Collect
Information you directly provide to us: When you register using ConnectFor, you will provide a variety of information about yourself including, (i) contact information like name, email address, postal address, phone number and mobile number; (ii) username and password; (iii) bank details including credit card or debit card details; and (iv) any correspondence between you and us. We may display some of this information on our Site publicly (such as name, location, and profile) and this information can be viewed by all registered users of the Site. We will not display any of your personal information including volunteering experience, skills, cause interests, or volunteer biography with the general public. However, this personal information may be shared either with volunteers or organizations looking for volunteers as this is the most reliable way to ensure that volunteers and organizations will properly match.
Information automatically collected: When you visit and interact with the Site, certain information may automatically be collected like log files which may include the internet protocol (IP) address your computer, browser type, internet service provider and operating system details, and date/time stamps to analyse trends, administer the Site, analyse bugs, and gather broad demographic information. We may also access information from third party sources and parties like social networking sites where we will collect any information that you make available from your accounts on those websites. We collect this information to create a more interactive experience on the Site and enable a more effective mechanism to connect you to a volunteer or to a volunteering opportunity.
Usage & Disclosure of Information Collected
We may use the personal information collected to send you e-mail communications, such as new volunteering opportunities and policy changes of ConnectFor. We may also use the information to send you copies of newsletters in case you have signed up for the subscription.
We will not share, sell or otherwise divulge any personal information provided by you with any third parties, unless we receive your affirmative consent. However, we will be required to divulge such information under certain circumstances as described under the Required Disclosures section below. An acceptance of a volunteering opportunity in a post for a volunteer opportunity would be deemed to be affirmative consent and we will disclose your personal information with the matched party.
Third-party services: We might use third party suppliers and service providers to facilitate the services we provide on the Site who shall have access to your personal information who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide services to you. We have also adopted commercially reasonable technical, physical and administrative procedures to help protect your personal information. As part of our policy, we seek to work with companies who also have a high work ethic and share our commitment to privacy. We shall also strive to restrict how these suppliers or service providers may use or disclose the personal information to which they have access but we shall in no way be responsible for such third parties or their activities. As such, you explicitly agree to allow us to give your information to third party suppliers and service providers in order for us to provide service to you.
Unauthorised access: Certain personal information that you provide as part of the registration process on the Site such as name and location may be accessible and made public through search engines, crawlers, and other similar codes. Such factors are beyond our control and we disclaim that we cannot fully ensure that your personal information will not be disclosed to third parties.
You can deactivate your account with the Site at any time by visiting the preferences page for your profile. When you deactivate your account, your user profile will be disabled, but your public comments will remain on the Site. The Site has no responsibility to take down, remove, or edit any of your public activities or any submissions that are a result of your public activities.
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under 13. If you believe that we may have collected information from a child under 13, please contact us at [email protected]
The Site has reasonable safeguards to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the personal information under our control. However, as this is the internet we can make no assurances or guarantees that your information will be 100% safe. For this reason we recommend you take appropriate measures such as protecting your passwords, using firewalls or downloading anti-virus software. If we learn of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically through our Site or by email so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Site or providing personal information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Site.
