GotCause may collect personal data from users both online and offline. In many cases, such information will be collected directly from you, such as through a transaction or inquiry, or your submission of a form, registration, or communication to us. Information may also be gathered from third-party sources (including without limitation, opt-in lists, publicly available data, consumer reporting agencies, other companies, and referrals) and through your activities and interactions with us. We may combine data collected from these disparate sources unless we tell you otherwise.
GotCause collects personally identifiable information about you only if you choose to provide it to us by registering for information or an event sponsored by us. This personally identifiable information may include, for example, first name, last name, phone number, e-mail address, avatars, passwords, comments about your purchases, voucher recipient's name if the user is buying a voucher as a gift, and fundraiser information.
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a User's computer for record-keeping purposes which contains information about that User. We use browser cookies, both persistent and session, to track user behavior on the Website. Accordingly, we collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information regarding you.

This type of information may include things like the Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") of the website you visited before coming to our Website, the URL of the website you visit after leaving our Website, the type of browser you are using and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, administer the Website, analyze trends, gather demographic information, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities. We may also share this information with our authorized third party service providers to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, and programming. GotCause makes certain information of yours public. Specifically, we make the following information public: your first name and the first initial of your last name, your avatar, comments about your purchases, and any fundraiser information you enter. We do not publicly disclose your e-mail address(es), passwords, full last name, phone number or voucher recipient name(s).
We provide a number of ways for you to contact us to ask questions, provide comments, or share concerns. Depending on the circumstances, to respond to your inquiry, we may collect your name, title, contact information, age group, message type, case number (if tied to a previous issue), comments, and other types of data relevant to the specific situation (e.g., product involved, use of the product and any problems with the product).
We may disclose personal data that you provide to our affiliates and partners and to consultants, service providers, and contractors that we use to support our business and operations (e.g., delivery services, financial institutions, fulfillment services, technical support, advertising, public relations, media and marketing services, legal services, call-in centers, e-commerce and other web-related services such as web hosting and web monitoring services, and event-related services such as online and offline data capture services) who have agreed to keep the information confidential and use it only to provide the applicable service(s).
