1. Overview on Collection and Sharing of Information
Information that we gather from Users falls into two broad categories: Personal Data and Aggregate Data.
2. Collection and Sharing of Personal Data
You can request to review, change, update or delete Personal Data that you have previously submitted to us. We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before we grant you access to your Personal Data and comply with your request. Please be aware that even after such a request is processed, Generocity may, for a time, retain residual information about you in our backup and/or archival copies of our database.
3. Collection and Sharing of Aggregate Data
Aggregate Data is information that does not personally identify you such as frequency of visits to the Generocity Site, page views, Generocity Services most frequently accessed, your Internet Protocol (IP) address, referrer addresses, where your computer is routing from, your browser type and version, or your operating system and platform (“Aggregate Data”). We use Aggregate Data to help us develop and improve the Generocity Services overall.
Cookies. Cookies are pieces of information that websites transfer to your computer’s web browser for storage on your computer’s hard drive. Generocity uses persistent cookies on the Generocity Site. A persistent cookie will remain on your hard drive even after you leave a given website and close your browser. When you return to the same website that placed the cookie on your hard drive, the website may then access the cookie.
Click-Throughs. Generocity or a party authorized by Generocity may send email messages which use a “click-through” text or graphic link that will take you to content on the Generocity Site. When you click on this link, you pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. If we use this feature, we will track click-through data to help determine our users’ interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked by using click-throughs, do not click text or graphic links in the email.
4. Opting Out of Certain Communications
Users are given the choice to opt-out of certain optional communications from us and our affiliates and marketing partners. To “opt-out” you may send an opt-out request to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the word “unsubscribe” in the email subject line. Users should allow a reasonable amount of time for the opt-out request to be processed. Please be aware that your opt-out choice may mean that certain features and functions of the Generocity Services will no longer be available to you.

6. Disclosures Required by Law
It is possible that we may need to disclose Personal Data when required by law, such as responses to civil or criminal subpoenas, or other requests by law enforcement personnel, to establish or exercise our legal rights or, defend against legal claims and if in our judgment in such circumstances disclosure is required or appropriate.
We may also share Personal Data if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms, or as otherwise required by law.

9. International Transmission of Data
The Internet is a global environment. Using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. This means that your information may be transferred to and maintained on computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. By using the Generocity Services and/or communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of your Personal Data in this manner, and agree to be bound by the applicable privacy laws that Generocity is governed by as well as the jurisdiction and venue provisions of the Generocity Terms.
10. Links to Other Websites
Paypal. PayPal may be accessed through the Generocity Services. The PayPal site may maintain the look and feel of the Generocity Site. Nonetheless your use of PayPal or any other third party vendor that is accessible by or through the Generocity Services is governed by that vendor’s policies and not those of Generocity. It is your responsibility to review the relevant privacy policies prior to accessing the services available on such vendor sites.
Generocity uses a variety of safeguards to protect your personal information. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data, we cannot ensure or warrant its absolute security. Consequently, when you transmit your Personal Data to us, you do so at your own risk. We use physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards and other appropriate measures to protect your Personal Data against unauthorized access or use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction and accidental loss.
