You may also provide us with information relating to third parties, such as your potential donor’s name and email email address, and may include phone numbers of your contacts (collectively, “Third-Party Data”). The Services may request your permission to access such Third-Party Data for the purposes of and aiding your attempts to solicit their on-line donation. While you are under no obligation to directly provide us with such information, should you choose to withhold such information, we may not be able to provide you with some or all of the Services.
If you provide “personal data” (as defined under the Privacy Shield principles – See Privacy Shield section for more information on how we treat information from users who reside in the European Union, European Economic Area, and Switzerland) to the Services, you acknowledge and agree that such personal data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of BoostMeUp.org and third parties who are retained and authorized by BoostMeUp to assist in its operations related to your fundraising efforts or support located in the United States.
