This Privacy Policy forms part of the Terms of Use, located at https://flipcause.com/terms (as applicable the “Agreement”). From time to time, we may modify the Privacy Policy described on this page in accordance with the Terms of Use. Any capitalized terms we use in this Privacy Policy without defining them have the definitions given to them in the Terms of Use.

      By using the Service or allowing someone to use the Service on your behalf, you are consenting to our collection, use, disclosure, processing, transfer and storage in accordance with this Privacy Policy of any Personal Data or other information received by us as a result of such use.

      2. PRIVACY POLICY LINKS

      We make an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy in the footer of every page on our websites, including those pages on which Personal Data is collected, and to make it available in all of our software.

      3. INFORMATION WE COLLECT

      When you interact with us through the Service, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:

      3.1. “Personal Data”:

      (i). Flipcause Account Holders: We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information to the Service, such as when you register for access to the Service as an Account Holder, contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys or use certain services. The Personal Data we may collect includes without limitation your name, address, email address and other personally identifiable information. In some cases, we may collect your credit card information (e.g., your credit card number and expiration date, billing address, etc.), some of which may constitute Personal Data, to secure certain payments. In addition, if you use our payment processing services, we will collect financial information from you (e.g., your bank account information or an address to send checks) as necessary to facilitate payments and information required for tax purposes (e.g., your taxpayer identification number). Flipcause Account Holders agree to not abuse other Users' personal information as outlined in the Flipcause Terms of Use. Abuse is defined as using personal information for any purpose other than those explicitly specified in the Account Holder’s Campaign, or is not related to fulfilling delivery of a product or service explicitly specified in the Account Holder’s Campaign. Account Holder’s never receive Supporters’ credit card information.

      (ii). Supporters and other non-Account Holders: We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information to the Service (including event registration pages within the Service), such as when you register for access to the Service (whether as an Account Holder or otherwise), donate to a Campaign, register to volunteer your time to a Campaign, register for a Campaign event, contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys or use certain parts of the Service. The Personal Data we may collect includes without limitation your name, address, email address, zip code, and other personally identifiable information. If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address and our responses. If you donate or buy paid event tickets, we may collect financial information from you (e.g., your credit card number and expiration date, billing address, etc.) some of which may constitute Personal Data. Credit card data is never stored anywhere on our servers. Additionally, Account Holders can set up donation, reward, volunteer, event registration, and other pages to collect virtually any information from Supporters in connection with a Campaign listed on the Service. If a Supporter voluntarily provides that information in connection with registration for an event, volunteer position, reward, or otherwise, it will be available to us and will be held by us in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

      3.2. Non-Personal Data:

      (i). Non-Identifiable Data: When you interact with the Service, we collect certain personally non-identifiable information ("Non-Personal Data"). The Non-Personal Data we collect includes without limitation Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, internet browser type, other characteristics of your device and software, domain names of your Internet Service Provider(“ISP”), your approximate geographic location, a record of your usage of the Service, the time of your usage and aggregated Personal Data that cannot be used to specifically identify you. We will use this information to monitor and prevent fraud, diagnose problems, and (anonymously) estimate demographic information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot, in and of itself, be used to specifically identify you. We also collect Non-Personal Data (including, without limitation, of the type set forth above) from third parties. The information we collect from third parties may be combined with the information we collect.


      4. HOW WE USE YOUR COLLECTED INFORMATION

      4.1.Personal Data: We use the Personal Data we collect in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. We may use the Personal Data as follows:

      (i). Specific Reason: If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by e-mail, we will use the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem and will respond to the email address from which the contact came.

      (ii). Access and Use: If you provide Personal Data in order to obtain access to or use of the Service or any functionality thereof, we will use your Personal Data to provide you with access to or use of the Service or functionality and to monitor your use of the Service or functionality. For instance, if you supply payment information (e.g., bank account or credit card information) to the Service for the purpose of donating or processing payments as a Supporter or as an Account Holder, we will use that information to facilitate such purchase or process such payments.

      (iii). Internal Business Purposes: We may use your Personal Data for internal business purposes including without limitation to help us improve the content and functionality of the Service, to better understand our Users, to improve the Service, to protect against fraud, identity or address wrongdoing, to enforce our Terms of Service, to manage your Account and provide you with customer service, and to generally manage the Service and our business.

      (vi).

      4.2. Non-Personal Data:

      (i). Because Non-Personal Data cannot be used to personally identify you, we may use such information for any lawful purpose.

      5. OUR DISCLOSURE OF THE INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT

      We are not in the business of selling your Personal Data. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. Therefore, we will not sell your Personal Data to third parties, including third party advertisers. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may disclose, transfer, process or share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

      (i). Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.

      (iii). Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: We, like many businesses, sometimes engage other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, order fulfillment, fraud prevention, maintaining databases and processing payments.

      (iv). Account Holders: We process Personal Data of our Account Holders’ end users, Supporters, or employees in connection with our Services to Account Holders, in which case we are the processor of Personal Data. When you purchase tickets, volunteer, register, donate, or submit forms to a Campaign on the Service, you consent to Flipcause providing your Personal Data to the Account Holder of the aforementioned Campaign.The data provided will be considered Account Holder Data and you consent to Flipcause processing your Personal Data on behalf of Account Holders pursuant to terms set forth in the Agreement. These Account Holders are not bound to treat your Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You agree that we are not responsible for the actions of these Account Holders with respect to your Personal Data. It is important that you review the applicable policies of the Account Holder of a Campaign before providing Personal Data or other information in connection with that Campaign. If we are the processor of your Personal Data (i.e., not the controller), please contact the controller party, in many cases, the Account Holder, in the first instance to address your rights with respect to such data.

      (vi). Legal Requirements: We may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law (including, without limitation responding to a subpoena or request from law enforcement, court or government agency) or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary.

      5.2. Non-Personal Data:

      (i). Because Non-Personal Data cannot be used to personally identify you, we may disclose, transfer or share Non-Personal Data for any lawful purpose.


      6. EMAIL AND SECURITY

      6.1. By providing your email address to Flipcause, you consent to our using the email address to send you Service-related notices, including any notices required by law. Note that you cannot unsubscribe from update communications about the Service. You can stop receiving Service communications only by closing your Account. We will send you email relating to your personal transactions, and will limit the amount of emails sent. We may also use your email address to send you other messages, including changes to features of the Service and special offers. You can unsubscribe from receiving all emails sent through our system. It may take up to 24 hours for us to process an unsubscribe request.You may have to unsubscribe from multiple emails before you stop receiving all communications. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers.

      6.2. After you opt out of all communications, we will retain your Personal Data and Non-Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy, however, we will no longer use it to contact you. Account Holders who have received your Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy may still use that Personal Data to contact you in accordance with their own privacy policies, but they may not use our system to do so.

      6.3. We may store Personal Data itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by our affiliates, agents or service providers. We take what we believe to be reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data provided via the Service from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, inadvertent disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

    • Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”)

      This policy is in accordance with the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), and outlines our practices in the United States and Latin America regarding children’s personal information. For more information about COPPA and general tips about protecting children’s online privacy, please visit this link.

      The policies outlined in this COPPA Privacy Policy are intended to supplement the information appearing in our general Privacy Policy. Where the COPPA Privacy Policy conflicts with the general Privacy Policy concerning information about a Child, the terms of this COPPA Privacy Policy will prevail over the general Privacy Policy.

      With regard to school-based activities, COPPA allows teachers and school administrators to act in the stead of parents to provide consent for the collection of personal information from children. Schools should always notify parents about these activities.

      The LAMP collects limited personal information from minor students only where that student’s school, district, or teacher has contracted with The LAMP to provide service, which collects personal information solely for the use and benefit of the learning environment. The LAMP requires schools, districts, or teachers to obtain parental consent from parents.

      If you are a parent and would like more information on parental rights with respect to a child’s educational record under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), please visit the FERPA site. If you believe that a student’s school, district, or teacher has not required parental consent prior to our collection of any personal information, contact us at admin@thelamp.org.

      If you are accessing thelamp.org on behalf of a Class, School or District, the following provisions also apply:

      You represent and warrant that you are solely responsible for complying with the Child Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) requirement to secure parental consent for accessing applications which require personal information from children under 13.

      You must obtain verifiable parental consent (“Consent”) from all parents whose children will be accessing Kami and provide a copy to us upon our request. For more information on COPPA, please see www.ftc.gov/privacy.

      When obtaining Consent, you must provide parents with a copy of our Privacy Policy.

      We do not disclose personal information collected from Children to third parties other than to persons who provide support for the operations of the service and who do not use the information for any other purpose, except as follows:

      - Parents
      - Teachers & school administrators.

      We may disclose any and all personal information collected from a Child to the parent or teacher who registered for the service in connection with such Child.

      Parents have the right to refuse the site further contact with their child and to have access to their child’s information and to have it deleted by contacting the school administrator.

      Parents have the right to consent to the site’s use of the child’s personal information without having to consent to its disclosure of that information to third parties by contacting the school administrator.

      If you are the parent and guardian of a student using LAMP services, and cease to agree with the LAMP's privacy policy at some point in the future, you may opt-out by contacting your Subscriber (typically your school) or LAMP administrator if you are an Education account user, or contact us at admin@thelamp.org if you have an individual account.

      If your or your student’s or your child’s personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, or delete it by making the change directly or email us at admin@thelamp.org. We will respond to your request within 30 days.

      We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services, contact us at admin@thelamp.org. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

      In any correspondence such as e-mail or mail, please include the child’s username, the school or organization, and the teacher or parent’s email address and telephone number. To protect children’s privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to help verify a teacher or parent’s identity before granting access to any personal information.
