At Cause IQ we have a few fundamental principles:
Nonprofit Metrics LLC ("NonprofitMetrics") operates Cause IQ, causeiq.com, and nonprofitmetrics.com. It is NonprofitMetrics’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, NonprofitMetrics collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. NonprofitMetrics’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how NonprofitMetrics’s visitors use its website. From time to time, NonprofitMetrics may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
NonprofitMetrics also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on NonprofitMetrics' blog. NonprofitMetrics only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Certain visitors to NonprofitMetrics’s websites choose to interact with NonprofitMetrics in ways that require NonprofitMetrics to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that NonprofitMetrics gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at nonprofitmetrics.com to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with NonprofitMetrics -- by purchasing a paid account, for example -- are asked to provide information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, NonprofitMetrics collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with NonprofitMetrics. NonprofitMetrics does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
NonprofitMetrics may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, NonprofitMetrics may monitor the most popular organizations viewed on the nonprofitmetrics.com site or use visitor behavior to identify similar organizations. NonprofitMetrics may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, NonprofitMetrics does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
NonprofitMetrics discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees and contractors that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on NonprofitMetrics’s behalf or to provide services available at NonprofitMetrics’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees and contractors may be located outside of your home country; by using NonprofitMetrics’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. NonprofitMetrics will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees and contractors, as described above, NonprofitMetrics discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when NonprofitMetrics believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of NonprofitMetrics, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an NonprofitMetrics website and have supplied your email address, NonprofitMetrics may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with NonprofitMetrics and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. NonprofitMetrics takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If NonprofitMetrics, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that NonprofitMetrics goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of NonprofitMetrics may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
