HOW AND WHY WE COLLECT INFORMATION
We want to helpful to you; therefore, we collect information in order to keep you informed of activities that you might be interested in. If you register for a course, or a free training, the information is used to enroll you in the program, to enroll you in our newsletters, to track your preferences, and to keep you informed about the product and related products. As a visitor to Philanthropic Upstart, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information.
If you opt in to receive any free training series, download a product, register for a webinar, seminar, or live event, or purchase any product sold by us, you will automatically be subscribed to our free newsletter. We will not over burden you with newsletter but if you do not wish to receive this free newsletter, you may opt out at any time. We include a handy dandy unsubscribe link at the bottom of every e-mail we send. If you have any trouble opting out, please send us an e-mail and we will make sure you get off the list. The last thing we hate is unsubscribing to things and then keep getting the emails. My promise to you is that I will manually remove you the newsletter list.
There are times that we may ask for additional information such as physical address in order to send you product. This information will never be sold or given to an outside party. It will be only used for the purpose we state in the form.
In all cases, we will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. We will also tell you how we use your information or if we share it with another party. Except as otherwise provided in this policy, we will never intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user to any third party without having received your permission.
When you use our Sites, we or our authorized technology services provider may also collect certain technical and routing information from you to facilitate your use of the Site and its services. We use this information to administer the Site and to understand and measure traffic patterns on the Site so that we know which areas of our sites are favorites of our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our sites. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying you or any user individually. We may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.

Further, the information you enter when making a purchase or an online donation will be shared with payment processors, financial gateways, and your credit card company to authorize credit card payments. Such information may also be shared with necessary third parties solely for the purpose or carrying out the transactions.
