1. How We Collect and Use Information
1.1 Analytics information
We use third-party analytics tools and services such as Google Analytics, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Site. When you visit the Site, these tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and other information related to your time spent on the Site. We collect and use analytics information such that it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual user.
1.2 Web Server Log Information
We may collect information from our web server logs. Such information could include:
- Your Internet protocol address
- The kind of browser or computer you use
- The number of links you click within the Site
- The state or country from which you accessed the site
- The date and time of your visit
- The name of your Internet service provider
- The web page through which you linked to our site
- The pages of our site that you viewed
We use this information to help improve your experience on the Site and to understand User preferences generally.
1.3 Cookies Information
A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Open Philanthropy reserves the right to share the Site’s aggregated analytics data with partner organizations, but we do not allow other organizations to place cookies on our website. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings, this may disable some of the functionality on the Site.
1.4 Personal Information Provided by You
You may directly provide us with information about yourself, and we invite you to do this in a number of ways. We may occasionally ask for your feedback via surveys or other communications to better understand your interests and needs. We also invite you to provide information about yourself if you are interested in working with us — we post descriptions of available jobs on the Site to which you can respond. We also invite you to provide your name and email address so that we can sign you up to receive updates by email and through our blog. We use a third-party provider, Mailchimp, to collect email addresses and distribute our email updates. If at any time you wish to stop receiving our electronic newsletters or other communications, or to be removed from our email list, you may unsubscribe from that list as explained in each email message.
Additionally, we may ask you to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting. We also may use your personal information for compliance purposes, and for our internal operational improvement purposes.
2. When We Might Share Personal Information
As described above, we may share certain User Personal Information with our service providers, such as Mailchimp and Google Analytics. We may also disclose User Personal Information as necessary:
- To fulfill your requests for services from us
- To protect ourselves from liability
- To respond to the legal process or comply with the law
- In connection with a proposed or actual merger, acquisition, or liquidation of our organizations
We do not share User Personal Information with unaffiliated third parties for their own marketing purposes.
We take reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. Consequently, we cannot ensure the security of any information that you transmit to us. In particular, information sent via e-mail may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you choose to send to us via e-mail.
4. Third-Party Sites
Throughout our website(s), we offer links to third-party sites. Since we do not control those websites, we do not control what information they collect, or what they do with such information. As such, we encourage you to review their privacy policies as well.
5. Non-U.S. Users
If you are located in a jurisdiction outside the United States, please note when you provide Personal Information through the Site, you are transferring that information to the United States, whose data protection laws are not the same (although they may be similar) to those applicable in the jurisdiction where you are located. By providing your Personal Information through the Site, you are consenting to the transfer of that information to the United States as indicated above.
