Give Corporation Privacy Policy - United States

This Privacy policy reflects how Give Corporation, Inc. and Give Corporation Technology Foundation (“Give Corporation“ or “we“) provides its payment services (the “Services“) through third party websites (“Platforms“), such as marketplaces, business tools providers, and crowdfunding sites. Platforms provide Give Corporation's Services to their end users (“Users“ or “you“) by integrating with Give Corporation's application programming interface (“API“), which also enables the Platform to provide User information to Give Corporation and receive information from Give Corporation. This Privacy Policy addresses how Give Corporation handles all User information, including User information provided by you, User information provided by the Platform, and User information obtained by Give Corporation from third parties. Give Corporation's Privacy Policy describes the ways we collect, use, and share User information. We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting a revised version at this link. The revised version will be effective at the time we post it, unless we provide additional notice or an opportunity to “opt-in“ because changes are material or retroactive.

By using the Services, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. By using a Platform that has integrated with Give Corporation's API, you are also accepting the practices described in the Platform's Privacy Policy, which you should review carefully. Any information you enter on the Platform's website or application, or on Give Corporation pages, fields, or resources that are integrated with the Platform's website or application, may be shared with the owner of the Platform website or application, subject to the requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) and applicable law. Give Corporation is not responsible for the content or information practices of Platforms.

Information Collected

Give Corporation collects three types of information: information that Users intentionally provide to Give Corporation or the Platform, information about Users that third parties provide to Give Corporation or the Platform to augment or verify that information, and information automatically provided by Users as they interact with the Give Corporation or Platform website. Information that can be used to identify, contact, or locate a User is “personally identifiable information.“ Automatically provided information that uniquely identifies a device or browser is not personally identifiable information, unless it is linked to a particular User.

User Provided Information

Users either accept payments as “Merchants“ or make payments as “Payers.“ A Merchant must provide the Merchant's name, email address, a self-selected password, street address, telephone number, tax identification number, merchant category code, date of birth (if a natural person), and bank account information. A Merchant may provide additional information, such as a link to its website or social media account, in order to accelerate account activation and qualify for faster disbursement of funds.

A Payer who is paying with a credit or debit card must provide the Payer's name, card number, expiration date, CVV code, country, and zip code. A Payer who is paying by ACH or EFT must provide the Payer's name and bank account information.

Merchants or Payers may voluntarily provide additional information to Give Corporation or the Platform, for example, when seeking customer support or in response to surveys or other inquiries.

Third-Party Provided Information

Give Corporation or the Platform may obtain information about Users from third parties, such as identity verification services, credit reporting services, and social networks such as Facebook or LinkedIn. The Platform may provide Give Corporation with additional information, such as the User's transactional history on the Platform.

Automatically Provided Information

Give Corporation or the Platform may automatically record certain information about or related to your use of the Services and the Platform that is made available through your computer. Three such technologies are described below.

  1. Log Files - Give Corporation or the Platform may collect internet protocol (IP) address, browser type, device ID, internet service provider (ISP), information about your computer and software, links, materials you request, your approximate location, referring/exit pages, date/time stamp, and other metadata. Platforms may embed Javascript code into page loads, which instructs Users' web browsers to make web requests back to our servers to collect information about User page views and other activities.
  2. Cookies - Give Corporation or the Platform collects certain information from the User's browser using small data files called “cookies.“ For example, Give Corporation or the Platform may use session cookies to help recognize a User who visits multiple website pages during the same session, so that the User does not have to enter a password to access each page. Session cookies terminate once the User closes the browser. By default, Give Corporation or the Platform also uses persistent cookies to collect, store, and track information. For example, Give Corporation or the Platform uses persistent cookies to store the User's login ID (but not the User's password) to make it easier for the User to login when the User returns to the website. We encode our cookies so that only we can interpret the information stored in them. You can remove or block persistent cookies using the settings in your browser, but this may limit your ability to use our Services.
  3. Clear GIFs and Web Beacons - Give Corporation or the Platform may employ a software technology, called clear gifs or web beacons, that helps us better manage content on the Give Corporation or Platform website, and in Give Corporation or Platform emails, by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a User's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.

"Do Not Track" Disclosure

Give Corporation does not currently respond to web browser “Do Not Track“ signals or other mechanisms that provide a method to opt out of the collection of personally identifiable information across the networks of websites and online services in which we participate. If we do so in the future, we will describe how we do so in this Privacy policy. Platforms may collect personally identifiable information about a User's online activities from you or from the Give Corporation Services. Please refer to the Platform's Privacy policy for information regarding its own “Do Not Track“ policy.

The Gist

We collect and store certain information about you. This information may be provided directly by you, a platform partner, or Give Corporation may collect it based on your use of the website.

Use of Information Obtained by Give Corporation

Give Corporation uses User information primarily in order to develop, operate, support, maintain, enhance and provide the Services. Give Corporation uses User information to process payment transactions; to provide receipts and reports; to resolve disputes, collect fees, and troubleshoot problems; to customize, measure, and improve the Services; and to enforce our agreements with Platforms and our Terms of Service and Merchant Agreement with Users.

Give Corporation also uses User information to detect and prevent fraud and other potentially illegal activities. Give Corporation may combine User information with information from other sources using proprietary algorithms to calculate a measure of the risk that a particular User or transaction is fraudulent (“Risk Score“).

Give Corporation uses User information for our administrative and operational purposes. Give Corporation or the Platform may notify you of changes in the Services, or may solicit your feedback, or may conduct market research, or may send you promotional materials. To unsubscribe from promotional emails, click the “unsubscribe“ link in the email.

The Gist

Give Corporation uses information collected about you in order to meet legal obligations and provide a better service.

Sharing of Information with Third Parties

Give Corporation may share User information with third-party service providers who help with certain parts of our business operations including settlement, security, validation of user credentials, secure data storage, marketing, customer service, and other services. Give Corporation requires that these service providers use personally identifiable User information only in connection with the services they perform for Give Corporation. In particular, the Services integrate ACH authorization services.

Give Corporation also may share non-personally identifiable User information with third parties that help us better understand how Users use our Service or help us detect and prevent fraud and other unauthorized or suspicious activity. These third parties may use cookies and other technologies to collect non-personally identifiable information about Users and combine it with similar information collected from others. They may use this information to help Give Corporation to better understand our Users, and to help their other customers better understand their users.

A Give Corporation Risk Score is not personally identifiable information, and Give Corporation may share it (and other similar information generated by Give Corporation) with Platforms or other third parties. Give Corporation claims ownership of Risk Scores and similar analytical results that we generate using User information, whether alone or in combination with other information. Give Corporation may use, disclose, or sell Risk Scores in Give Corporation's sole discretion.

Give Corporation may share User information in the event of a merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of all or a portion of our assets, or similar transaction, or in the event of insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which User information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets. Should such an event occur, Give Corporation will endeavor to assure that the acquirer, successor, or assignee (as the case may be) follows this Privacy policy with respect to User information. If User information could be used contrary to this Privacy policy, Users will receive prior notice as well as the opportunity to opt out.

Give Corporation may share User information with law enforcement, government officials, or other third parties in the event of a subpoena, court order or similar legal procedure, or when Give Corporation believes in good faith that the disclosure of User information is necessary or advisable to report suspected illegal activity, or to protect Give Corporation's property or legal rights (including, but not limited to, enforcement of Give Corporation's Terms of Service, Merchant Agreement, and other agreements) or the property or rights of others, or otherwise to help protect the safety or security of the Services.

Except as expressly disclosed in this Privacy policy, Give Corporation will not sell or disclose User information to third parties. Give Corporation will not sell, rent, share, or trade personally identifiable information to third parties (other than the Platform through which Give Corporation collected such information) for their promotional purposes. Give Corporation may disclose aggregated or other types of non-personally identifiable information to third parties for various purposes.

The Gist

We will share personally identifiable information with third parties only to best provide Give Corporation's services and in special situations, such as legal investigations and merger. We may also share non-identifiable information with third parties that help us prevent fraud and analyze website activity.


Give Corporation has implemented physical, technical, and procedural safeguards to protect User information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Give Corporation uses computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, and authorizes access to personally identifiable information only for those employees, contractors, and agents who require it to fulfill their job responsibilities.

Give Corporation takes additional care to protect User information, such as credit card or bank account numbers, if disclosure of the particular type of User information could cause direct financial loss. Give Corporation encrypts such information and transmits it under Secure Socket Layer (SSL).

The Gist

Give Corporation has taken a number of steps in order to become an extremely secure service.


Give Corporation stores and processes User information on dedicated servers located in secure data centers that may be located within the United States or in other jurisdictions. If you use the Services from the European Economic Area or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that differ from laws of the United States, then you understand and consent to the transfer of your User information to the United States or other jurisdictions for the uses identified above in accordance with this Privacy policy. You acknowledge and agree that the privacy and data security laws in place in the United States or other jurisdictions may be different from the privacy and data security laws in force in the country in which you reside. By voluntarily providing User information, you hereby agree that you are consenting to our collection, use, storage, and disclosure of such User information in accordance with this Privacy policy. In relation to transfers of User information from Give Corporation Payments Ltd. (in the UK) to Give Corporation, Inc. (in the United States), Give Corporation has put in place measures, including standard model clauses, to ensure an adequate level of protection for the rights and freedoms of individuals in relation to the processing of their personal data, as required by European data protection laws.

The Gist

It's easy to change your user information.


The Services are not intended for children. We ask that minors (persons under the age of 18) do not submit any personal information to us or use the Services.
