Education Giving - Privacy Policy

Education Giving is owned and operated by Giving Society, Inc. ("Giving Society"), a 501(c)3 organization recognized by the United States IRS to provide issue-specific donation platforms and tax-deductable benefits to our donors. This privacy policy ("Policy") explains our policies and practices with respect to personally identifiable information collected through the website ("Website"). Please take the time to read and understand this Policy so that you can understand how we use your personal information. When you use this Website, you agree to the terms and conditions that follow. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, you should immediately cease use of this Website.

1. What Information Does The Website Gather?

Please be assured that we do not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. This means that you can visit our Website without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself (such as your e-mail address, software you are using or any information about yourself).

As you browse the Website, our web servers collect information about your visit, but not about you personally. Via web server logs, we monitor statistics such as:

  • How many people visit our Website
  • Which pages people visit on our Website
  • From which domains our visitors come (e.g., aol.com)
  • Which browsers people use to visit our Website

None of this information is associated with you as an individual. We use these statistics to improve our Website, to monitor its performance, and to make the Website easier for you and other visitors to use. If you become a registered user, we may use information about your visits to serve you better, as discussed below.

2. What About Pages That Ask For Personal Information?

When visitors supply information about themselves for a specific purpose, we use the information for that purpose. For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to donate to the Giving Society, manage online registration, or apply for a benefit. The information may include your name, contact information, school information, and other personal information.

3. What Happens To My Personal Information?

We will use the personal information you provide to the Website for the purposes you have requested or we have disclosed in this Policy. If you want us to stop using the personal information you provided in these ways, please email us at: privacy@givingsociety.org.

We will use your email address to send you a confirmation email to acknowledge your activity on the Website. Unless you opt out from receiving other News and Updates, we may also subscribe you to our Newsletter and send you scholarship alerts. Alerts include reminders about essential scholarship deadlines, major industry changes, new scholarship that have been added to the Website, etc. At any time after your Website visit, you may opt out from receiving such mail either by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link from within the email, by visiting the Website or by contacting us using the information at the end of this document.

4. Do You Sell or Give My Information To Parties Other Than the Giving Society?

We do not sell your personal information, nor will we share the personal information you provide except (a) where such disclosure has been described on this Website or in this Policy or you have otherwise consented to such disclosure; (b) as a result of our belief that the disclosure may be required by law or may be necessary to protect our company or others from injury (e.g., in response to a court order or subpoena or law enforcement agency request or when we believe that someone is causing or may cause injury or is interfering with the rights or property of another).

5. Correcting or Changing Your Personal Information

For instructions on how you can correct any errors in such information, please email us at privacy@givingsociety.org. If your personal information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, delete, or deactivate it by clicking on the link provided at the bottom of our emails, or by emailing privacy@givingsociety.org.

6. A Special Note for Parents

Our Website is not intended for use by children. Our Website will not knowingly allow an individual under the age of 13 to enter his or her personal information. If you believe that your child under 13 is using our Website, you may contact us at http://www.givingsociety.org/contact.

7. What Are Cookies And Do You Use Them?

To enhance your online experience with us, we may use cookies. Cookies are text files placed on your hard disk by our web server to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not reveal your email address or other personal information unless you choose to provide this information to us. However, once you choose to provide the personal information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. We use cookies as a convenient feature to save you time, to understand how our Website is used, and to improve the content and offerings on our Website. For example, we may use cookies to personalize your experience at our web pages or recall your specific information on subsequent visits. We also may use cookies to offer you products, programs or services. You can opt to have your browser reject cookies. If you do that, you may need to re-register with us every time you visit our Website in order to participate in certain promotions and programs. You should also know that companies that may advertise on our Website (and their agents) might use their own cookies. This Policy does not cover how these companies use their cookies.

8. Changes to this Policy

Because our organization’s needs may change over time, we reserve the right to change this Policy, including the way we use your personal information, at any time. Please review this Policy from time to time and before you provide any personal information to the Website. If we change this Policy, we will post those changes on the homepage of the Website and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of any changes to this Policy means you accept such changes.
