What Personal Data We Collect and Why We Collect It

We collect the type of data that websites routinely collect to interact with its visitors via online forms and comment forms, as well as via technical processes such as cookies, analytics, and interactions with software provided by third party websites.

However, as an online company that facilitates fundraising, we may also collect personally identifying information related to non-profits, fundraisers, donors, or other site visitors. Based on the interactions involved, the potentially personally identifying information that is collected could vary. We foresee two primary uses of our platform—fundraising and donating. These two user interactions, and the types of personally identifying information collected via those interactions, are detailed in Softgiving’s Terms of Service.
