Privacy Policy

Date of Last Revision: March 12th, 2018.

Welcome to the web site or mobile application (as the case may be) (collectively, the "Platform") of BoostMeUp (including its subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, and service providers, collectively, "BMU, BoostMeUp, BoostMeUp.org," "we," "us," and/or "our").

Unlike almost every other fundraising website, we do not collect your information for market research, user analysis, demographic information or sell a user’s information to a 3rd party for any reason. Before you use or submit any information through or in connection with the BoostMeUp’s services, please carefully review our Privacy Policy. By using any part of the Services, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your information as further outlined in this Privacy Policy.
This platform is operated by BoostMeUp and has been created to provide information about our company, our online platform that is designed to permit users to post a fundraising campaign to accept monetary donations on behalf of our users and visitors ("you," and/or "your"). This Privacy Policy describes and governs how we collect, use, share and protect data collected from users of or visitors to BoostMeUp.org.

 

Information Collected

When you use or otherwise access the Services, we may collect information in multiple ways, including when you provide information directly to us, and when we passively collect information from your browser or device.

 

A. Information That You Provide Directly to Us:

We collect information from you (including, but not limited to, your name, email address, and location) when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys, provide us with feedback, register for access to the Services, or use certain Services.
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.
Our Services may include online chats and message boards. Our fundraising pages on BoostMeUp are visible to the public at large. Please remember that any information disclosed in these areas becomes public information for both us and other users to use and share. Please be considerate and respectful of others while using the community to share your opinions, fundraising mission statements and types of causes you are fund raising for. We reserve the right, but do not have the obligation, to review and monitor such posting or any other content on our Services, and to remove postings, campaigns or content that may be viewed as inappropriate or offensive to others.

 

B. Information That is Passively or Automatically Collected

I. Device & Usage Information:
When you interact with BoostMeUp.org we automatically receive and store certain information from devices you use to access the Services. This information is collected passively using various technologies, and includes the type of internet browser or mobile device you use, and may include location data through an IP address that identifies the city and state where you logged into the Platform. BoostMeUp solely stores such information to assist in account retrieval, donation verification and for the purpose of assisting the platform user. BoostMeUp does not sell or market personal information voluntarily provided, passively collected, or automatically collected.
Location Information:
When you use the Services to organize a fundraising campaign, the Services may request that you provide your city or town and state, zip code or province of residence. Please keep in mind that other users of the Services may be able to view your city or town and state or province of residence in connection with the campaign, if it is made available within BoostMeUp’s campaign Search Directory or Zip Code Search feature. We may also use your location information in an aggregate way, as described above in the "Aggregated Data" section.

II. Cookies and Other Electronic Technologies:
When you interact with the Services, we try to make that experience simple and meaningful. When you visit almost any online platform, a web server sends a cookie to your computer or mobile device. Cookies are small pieces of information that are issued to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or access or use a mobile application, and that store and sometimes track information about your use of the Platform. A number of cookies we use last only for the duration of your web or application session and expire when you close your browser or exit the application. Other cookies are used to remember you when you return to the Platform and will last longer.

We may use cookies, and similar technologies to cookies, to collect information about your access and use of the Platform. For example, we may use cookies or other technologies that: (1) allow you to navigate and use all the features provided by our Platform; (2) customize elements of the layout and/or content within the Platform and remember that you have visited us before; (3) identify the number of unique visitors we receive; (4) allow us to provide you with a customized experience; and (5) inform us how you use the Platform (including how long you spend on the Platform) and where you have come to the Platform from, so that we can improve the Platform and learn which functions of the Platform are most popular with users. As we adopt additional technologies, we may also gather additional information through other methods.

Most web and mobile device browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that or to notify you each time a cookie is set. You can also learn more about cookies by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org, which includes additional useful information on cookies and how to block cookies using different types of browsers or mobile devices.

If you are accessing our Services through a mobile device, you can also update your privacy settings on your device by setting the Diagnostics and Usage setting property located in the settings screen of your Apple iPhone or iPad, or by resetting your Android ID through apps that are available in the Play Store. You can also limit information collection by uninstalling the App on your device and you can use the standard uninstall process available as part of your device for this purpose.

One of the special features of the Services is that it may allow you to enable or log into the Services via various social networking services like Facebook or Twitter ("Social Networking Service(s)"). By directly integrating these services, we aim to make your online experiences richer and more personalized.

When you add a Social Networking Services account to the Services or log into the Services using your Social Networking Services account, we will collect relevant information necessary to enable the Services to access that Social Networking Service and your data contained within that Social Networking Service. As part of such integration, the Social Networking Service will provide us with access to certain information (including, for example, your name and photograph, as well as other information that you permit the Social Network Service to share with us) that you have provided to the Social Networking Service, and we will use, store, and disclose such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. However, please remember that the manner in which Social Networking Services use, store, and disclose your information is governed by the policies of such third parties, and BoostMeUp.org shall have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any Social Networking Services that may be enabled within the Services.
