COLLECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Venture is committed to protecting your privacy. This Statement of Privacy applies to Venture’s web site and governs data collection and usage at all Venture sites and services; it does not apply to other online or offline sites. Venture is a general audience web site, intended for users of all ages. Personal information of users is collected, used and disclosed as described in this Statement of Privacy.

We are not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on web sites outside of the Venture web site.
Venture collects personal information on a voluntary basis, such as your email address, name, home or work address or telephone number when donations are submitted. For each visitor to our web page, our web server automatically recognizes only the consumer’s domain name, but not the email address (where possible). For online event registration, we set cookies to update attendance payment and verify successful online registration. At no time during any Venture transaction is credit card information stored in a cookie.
USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Personal information collected by Venture is used solely for the purpose processing your donation, tracking donor information, sending receipts for donation and maintaining contact with donors. It is possible that Venture may also use personal information to inform you of other events or fundraising efforts of the organization. Venture may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of the organization.
Venture does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Venture does not collect sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations without consent.
Venture may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Venture or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Venture, including its web site; or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Venture or the public. Personal information collected on this site may be stored and processed in the United States where Venture or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities.

Venture offers its customers choices for the collection, use and sharing of personal information. You may go notify us of your preferences by emailing email@example.com. Please be sure to provide complete account information so we can identify you in our records. You may also stop the delivery of future promotional email from Venture by responding directly to any email you receive with a request to remove you from the mailing list.
SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Information we collect and how we may use it
If you are a customer of Kindful, we collect certain information about you in order to provide you with our donor management system and/or online payment service (the “Service”). When you register for the Service we will request some personal information such as your name and email address, and information about your organization such as the name of your organization, Tax ID, mailing address, and tax designation. Furthermore, if you are opening a merchant account, Kindful may also obtain information about you from third party sources, including, without limitation, consumer reporting agencies. This information is used to contact you about the services on our Site for which you have expressed an interest. As part of the Service, we may also collect donor information on behalf of your organization. Except as may be expressly set forth herein, we will not use any donor information collected on your behalf for any purpose other than to provide the Service. Any tax or financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the Service. If you purchase the Service by credit card, this information will be transmitted to our credit card merchant account provider, and may be forwarded to your credit card provider. We do not store credit card information.
If you are a donor for a Kindful customer, we collect certain information from you in order to process your donation (“Donor Information”). Kindful will use Donor Information during the course of providing the Service to such Kindful customer. Kindful may also use Donor Information at an aggregate level for internal business analyses and fraud prevention.

When we disclose your information
Kindful takes your privacy very seriously. The information we collect is used to provide the Service, and, in general, is not shared with or sold to other organizations for commercial purposes. However, there are times when it may be advantageous for Kindful to make certain personal information about you available to companies that Kindful has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for Kindful to provide products and services to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, deliver products or services to you, provide customer service, manage and enhance user data, assess your interest in our products and services, or conduct user research or satisfaction surveys. We may also disclose your personal information, if you have authorized us to act on your behalf to initiate the creation of a merchant account for the purpose of accepting donations by credit card.
At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.
In addition, Kindful may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy. In such an event, personal information may be one of the assets transferred.
