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 If you have not withdrawn permission (opted-out), we will also forward newsletters from your cause to you, and will let your cause know that you are supporting the cause with your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 visits or 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 information is collected?
We track when and how you visit and use our site, either directly or using browser add-ons / extensions like the iGive Toolbar or Button. We track the iGive stores you visit, the search terms you use, and purchase information provided to us by the stores you use via iGive so that we may credit you appropriately.
What information is NOT collected?
We do NOT collect or have any access to your credit card information.
Stores do not share that information with us, either.
We do NOT collect or have any access to social security numbers. Generally, we do not collect or receive detail on your purchases. In some instances, you or a store will share purchase detail with us, but we do not retain that information.
What security measures are taken to protect member and other 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 your personally identifiable 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. This information allows 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.
