Collection of Personal Information from Visitors
Cause Effective does not collect any unique information about you (such as your name, email address or phone number) except when you specifically and knowingly provide such information. Cause Effective does, however, note and save information such as time of day, browser type, browser language, and IP address with each query. That information is used to verify our records and to provide more relevant services to users. For example, Cause Effective may use your IP address or browser language to determine which language to use when showing search results or advertisements.
The Website may utilize a standard Internet technology known as "cookies," which are small data files that your browser stores on your computer to record your preferences and to remember the information you have accessed or provided in the past. When a visitor returns to the Cause Effective website, Cause Effective may recognize the visitor by the Internet cookie and customize the visitor's experience accordingly. Many web browsers allow you to disable cookies if you do not wish to receive them. If you disable cookies, you may still use the Website, but may be unable to access certain portions of the Website.
Use of Personal Data Collected
Personal data collected by Cause Effective may be used for editorial and feedback purposes, for marketing and promotional purposes, for a statistical analysis of visitors' behavior, for product development, for content improvement, or to customize the content and layout of our services. Cause Effective does not share information about you with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties. Aggregate data on visitors' home servers may be used for internal purposes but will not be provided to third parties such as marketing firms without your express written consent. Please be aware, however, that we will release specific personal information about you if required to do so in order to comply with any valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order. Individually identifying information, such as names, postal and email addresses, phone numbers, and other personal information which visitors voluntarily provide to Cause Effective may be added to Cause Effective databases and used for future mailings regarding site updates and upcoming events.
Processing of Orders
We use the information you provide about yourself and/or any third party when making a donation or order on the Website only to complete that transaction. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete the transaction. This information is used to process your order, to deliver your products and for billing purposes. If we have difficulty processing an order, this information will be used to contact you.
