What information is collected
We take the privacy of users of this website very seriously. Because we gather certain pieces of your personal information, we want to help you understand the terms and conditions surrounding the collection and ultimate use of that information. Shop for your Cause, LLC gives users the opportunity to contribute a percentage (in rare cases a flat-fee) of their online purchases to participating schools, churches, and nonprofit organizations. While registration is not necessary, if the user chooses to register, they must provide us with their Name, e-mail address, zip code, and a password so you may log back into the site.
What information is NOT collected
We do not collect credit card info, social security number, or software or hardware attributes/information. We only collect the information that you voluntarily share with us. Credit card information is handled by the merchant who you are shopping through. We simply act as a portal and never see nor have any access to your credit card information.
How We Keep Your Information Secure
The security of your personal information is of vital importance to us. At Shop for your Cause, our security
measures consist of firewalls, regular internal audits, password protections and vulnerability scans.
Any sensitive information that we may have access to, such as order transaction information needed to be able to make payments to your cause (this is contained in third party reporting and is secured using their own security devices).
Your Privacy with Shopforyourcause
Shop for your Cause will never ask for any of your personal log-in information via an unsolicited phone call, e-mail, or written letter. The only time there is communication about these pieces of information is when you as the user proactively communicate with Shop for your Cause inquiring about this information.
Shopping via Shop for your Cause has more perks than just getting to donate a percentage of the purchase to your charity. We work tirelessly to give you the best deals and coupons for your favorite stores. We will e-mail you with these special offers as well as other important information about the charities you shop for. You may unsubscribe from these mailings anytime you like within the respective e-mails.
Communication with non-profits
At times and for certain charities we will share information so they can analyze and have a better idea of what is going on within their membership base. This will only consist of a certain set parameter of your e- mail address. These non-profits will never have the right to solicit you.
