The Website is hosted and operated in Canada. If you use the Website from outside Canada, please be aware that the information you provide to us is transmitted to, processed, and stored in Canada. Data will be collected, processed, maintained, and used subject to this Privacy Policy and applicable privacy laws in Canada and, where applicable, the European Economic Area (“EEA”). These laws may be different from the privacy laws in your country. However, this does not change our commitments to safeguard your privacy, and we will comply with all applicable laws relating to the cross-border transfer of your Personal Data (as that term is described below). This Privacy Policy is binding on all those who access, visit, and/or use our Website, whether acting as an individual or on behalf of an entity, including you and all persons, entities, or digital engines of any kind that harvest, crawl, index, scrape, spider, or mine digital content by an automated or manual process or otherwise. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. If you do not agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy, then do not access or use the Website. By accessing and/or using the Website, you accept and agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into our and Website Cookie Policy.

Information We Collect

When you use the Website, we collect and/or process the following types of data:

Personal Data 

“Personal Data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier. We collect Personal Data that you provide to us when you register for an Account (as defined below) on our Website; submit a donation; make a purchase; subscribe to one of our newsletters; contact us via phone, email, postal mail, or other means; chat with us on our Website; or respond to our communications to you (e.g., surveys, requests for feedback). This may include your first or last name, email address, social media user names, telephone number, mailing address, billing address, payment information, organization name, geolocation information, or your IP address. We may also collect demographic information such as gender, nationality, ethnic origin, interests or preferences, business or company information, professional experience, educational background, professional or personal reference contact information, or social media URLs. Some information may be used in Account or password recovery processes. In the EEA, Personal Data includes an identification number, location information, and/or an online identifier.

If we combine or associate information from other sources with Personal Data that we collect through the Website, we will treat the combined information as Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Non-Personal Data

“Non-Personal Data” does not identify you but provides insights regarding your use of the Website. We collect Non-Personal Data that may include information about your use of the Website, including but not limited to, Internet connection information, computer equipment information, web browser specifications, websites visited before accessing our Website, websites visited after leaving our Website, other similar information about traffic and usage as you navigate to, through, and away from our Website, chat interactions on the Website (including text exchanged during the interactions), donation amounts and frequencies, items purchased, purchase histories, information you post or otherwise submit to the Website, or emails you send to us.

Non-Personal Data that we collect may also include “Log Data.” Log Data refers to certain information about how a User (including both Users with an Account and without an Account) uses our Website. Log Data may include the pages or features of the Website to which a User browsed and the time spent on those pages or features, the frequency with which the Website is used by a User, search terms, the links on our Website that a user clicked on or used, and related timestamps. We use automated information collection tools, such as cookies and web beacons, to collect certain types of Non-Personal Data. You can set your browser to reject cookies, but that may limit your use of some convenience features on the Website. We also use Google Analytics and automated chat and email marketing software to provide services and website functionality to Users.

You may be given the option to receive push notifications while using our Website. In order to serve push notifications, we may need to collect your IP address and a persistent identifier from your device. You can turn off push notifications in your device settings. Personal Data and Non-Personal Data are collectively referenced as “Data.”

In some jurisdictions, such as Canada, an IP address may be considered Non-Personal Data. In the European Economic Area, for example, an IP address is considered Personal Data under applicable data protection laws. If this is the case, we process Non-Personal Data for the same purposes as Personal Data under this Privacy Policy.

Geolocation Information

We may also determine location information about you based on information in your Internet connection data or provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) (e.g., your IP address).

For example, some social networking services allow you to push content from our Website to your contacts or to pull information about your contacts so you can connect with them on or through our Website. Some social networking services also will facilitate registration or enhance or personalize your experience on our Website. This includes if you “follow,” “like,” or link your social networking account to our Website. Your decision to use a social networking service in connection with our Website is voluntary.
