GlobalGiving values you and respects your privacy. We collect information to support our relationship with you, improve our services, and communicate about promotions or special services. We recognise that we must maintain and use information responsibly and that comply with any laws and regulations which apply to our use of your personal information (in particular the Data Protection Act 1998).
We collect personal information when you create an account or edit your account information, donate to a project, or send a gift card. We also collect some technical information about your use of our website. This information is used to facilitate your use of the site and your donations, to contact you when necessary, and to improve your experience.
For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998, the data controller is GlobalGiving UK (registered company number: 5824642 and registered charity number 1122823, whose registered office is at 75 Westminster Bridge Road, London, SE1 7HS, United Kingdom)
When you create an account on our website, we collect basic information about you - your name and email address. We collect additional personal information if you submit a profile or picture, or create a GlobalGiving gift registry.
When you make an online donation on globalgiving.co.uk, we collect personal information such as your name, billing address, and email address, if you have not already provided these details. Credit card or bank account numbers are collected by a third-party payment vendor VeriSign or PayPal depending on the method of payment you choose. These partners' use of your information is based on their terms of service and policies, which you should review. GlobalGiving will collect only your GlobalGiving account information and donation history. We do not collect or have access to the credit card numbers or bank account information our third-party vendors (PayPal and VeriSign) collect to process online transactions.
If you give a GlobalGiving gift certificate, we collect the name, email address, and mailing address of your recipient, as well as a personal message from you. This information is collected only to facilitate this service and we use it in good faith that the recipient will not object to us using it in this way
Sometimes GlobalGiving may invite you to participate in contests, take advantage of special promotions, and complete online surveys. The information we collect from these contests, promotions, and surveys may be associated with your individual account in order to help us improve our website and services. This information will only be shared as described in this policy, and your answers to surveys will only be used in aggregate.

We will share your personal information with our agents, representatives, service providers and contractors in order to process your donations, offer you services in connection with our website, communicate news and information about GlobalGiving, provide customer service, enhance and improve customers' donor experiences, and complete financial transactions.

Aside from the purposes described above, we will not disclose your personal information only in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, for insurance when we are legally obliged to do so, or we consider that an emergency situation requires disclosure before your permission can be obtained (e.g., situations involving potential threats to personal safety), or to protect our rights or property, or the rights or property of another person.
We may share aggregated demographic and statistical information with our other partners. This will not be linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
