iGive.com Privacy Policy    (Last updated on 6/17/08)

First and foremost, iGive.com respects your right to privacy. iGive.com will never sell any of the personally identifiable information we collect--your name, cause affiliation, e-mail address, preferences, iGive.com mall purchase information, site activity or other personally identifiable information--to any third party, ever, without your consent or court order.

Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.

iGive.com provides you with the ability to donate money specified on the iGive.com site on purchases from online merchants to be paid to your account, for later disbursement to your selected cause. iGive.com's privacy statement, below, pertains to these services and the management of data related to providing these services.

In addition, we include instructions for managing your settings and membership.


How does iGive.com use the information collected?

We will be utilizing your e-mail address to send you our newsletters and to alert you to special opportunities and offers. If you have given permission, we will also forward newsletters from your cause to you, and will let your cause know that you are supporting the cause with your online shopping.

We will disclose information that we gather only in the aggregate in order to analyze our usage and attract advertisers, corporate sponsors or merchant affiliates. We will take great care and caution to keep whatever information we gather safe.

Our referral program rewards the causes when members refer new shoppers to iGive.com through their personalized Tell-a-Friend links. If you join through such a link, your name is revealed to your referrer only if you give permission during registration. No other information is shared or revealed with the individual who referred you, or with any other party. If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend's name and e-mail address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time e-mail inviting him or her to visit the site. iGive.com stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time e-mail and tracking the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us to request that we remove this information from our database.

Please note that when a member shops at our advertisers or with an iGive.com merchant or in the iGive.com Mall, they are dealing with another company, not iGive.com. This means that you enter into a relationship with that company / Web site separately from iGive.com. Any information you share with that advertiser or merchant is subject to their policies and practices, not to iGive.com's policies or practices. Members are encouraged to read the privacy policies of our merchant partners.

What security measures are taken to protect member information?

Non-authorized personnel do not have physical access to our computers or database.  Employees review security guidelines on a quarterly basis, as well as any time new policies are added.  The servers that we use to store personally identifiable information are kept in a locked room at a secure facility which requires fingerprint authorization for entry.

Are cookies or tracking pixels used by iGive.com?

We and certain of our vendors use �cookies' to make visiting our site and visiting iGive.com merchants a better, easier experience. We do link the information we store in cookies to personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. This is done to allow us or our vendors to recognize you when you visit iGive.com, iGive.com merchants, and the iGive.com Mall.  Cookies also make it easier for us to track your activity and purchases and to match them with your member registration and charity so that you and your selected cause receive the appropriate credit.  We do not share this information with others.

Some iGive.com e-mails contain a transparent GIF file, also called a tracking pixel. If you choose to download the images within our e-mails, the tracking pixel will allow us to identify your web browser through a unique cookie, which allows us to know if and when you opened our e-mail. Pixel tracking is extremely common and is used by many reputable companies.

iGive.com e-mails have contained tracking pixels since 2003, and this information has allowed us to better understand which of our e-mails are resulting in traffic to iGive.com and our merchants. Information gained through pixel tracking is only shared in aggregate; we do not share personally identifiable information gathered through pixel tracking.
