What information we collect
We generally collect two types of information—personally identifiable information ("PII") and non-personally identifiable information ("Non-PII"). PII is any information that can be used to specifically identify you as an individual. For example, you may submit and we may collect your name, email address, address, phone number, or similar information through the Site. Non-PII consists of information that does not specifically identify you. The following section describes how we collect and use your PII and Non-PII.
How we collect and use information Cookies and Beacons
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can configure your browser to stop accepting new cookies, to notify you when you a new cookie is received, and to disable existing cookies. If you choose to disable cookies in your browser, however, you may be unable to take full advantage of all the Site’s features.
When you are using the Site, we automatically gather basic information from your browser, such as IP address, browser type, ISP, OS, and date/time stamps to analyze trends, administer the site, analyze bugs, and gather broad demographic information. We do not share log files externally.
Information About You
When you register with Chezuba, you may provide a variety of information to help us match you with the best possible volunteer or volunteer experience. 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 contact information, professional experience, skills, cause interests, or volunteer biography with the general public. However, this 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 be properly matched.
Information From Other Web Sites
When associating your Chezuba account with other Internet services, we will collect any information that you make available from your accounts on those websites. We collect this information to help us improve our ability to match you with a volunteer or volunteer opportunity and to improve your overall user experience on the Site.
Disclosure of your information to others Opt-In Requirement
Without your affirmative consent, we will not sell, rent, or otherwise share your PII with other third parties, unless required as described under the Required Disclosures section below. In the case of posting a volunteer opportunity and accepting a volunteering match, we regard this as affirmative consent and will disclose your PII with the matched party.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may use third party suppliers and service providers to facilitate our services, as they may have access to your PII. For example, we may outsource one or more aspects of our Site to a supplier or service provider who performs services according to our requirements. Although we endeavor to select only reputable companies for this purpose, and keep a restriction on how these suppliers or service providers may use or disclose your PII to which they may have access, we are in no way responsible for such third parties or their actions.
Due to factors beyond our control, we cannot fully ensure that your information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access your information.
Search Engines and Web Crawlers
Certain PII that you provide through the registration process (such as name, location, and profile image) may be accessible and made public through syndication programs, search engines, crawlers, and other similar programs.
We make every reasonable effort to preserve your privacy, but may need to disclose your PII when required by law or if we have a belief that such action is necessary to:
- Comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process; or
- Protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Chezuba, its members, or others.
How to review and change information
You may control the information you provide to us in various ways. If you would like to change any of your information in our database, you can do so by logging onto your account and following the directions. To cancel your account, send an email request to [email protected] from the email address you provided us in your registration.
Any person who provides information through the Site represents that they are 18 years of age or older. We do not knowingly collect PII from anyone under the age of 18. Our Site and Service are not designed for users under 18.
You may use the Email Preferences features on the Site to opt-out of notifications, promotional emails and newsletters. You will also have the ability to opt-in in the event that we share your information with other third-party organizations for their marketing or promotional uses or various other programs or features. If you wish to be removed from any communications simply respond to the link provided in the email or email us at [email protected]
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting profile access. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times. The Site has reasonable safeguards to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. However, 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 within 72 hours of such an event 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.
Change of Control
In the event of a change of control of Chezuba from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or upon Chezuba's filing for a bankruptcy, information Chezuba receives from you is a Chezuba's asset that may be transferred.
