(i).

The Personal Data we may collect includes without limitation your name, address, email address, phone number​ 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.

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”).

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.

(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.
