DonationStreet Privacy Policy

Introduction

DonationStreet provides a special service to Non-Profit organizations ("Causes") at www.DSCoupons.com. The service allows Causes to offer their members and donors a new way to raise funds for their organization through shopping online. Our policy is to neither collect nor share personally identifiable information and to establish a trusting relationship based on respect for personal identity and information.

This privacy statement covers the site www.DSCoupons.com. Because we want to demonstrate our commitment to our users' privacy, we have agreed to disclose our privacy practices.

Part of our mission is to build users' trust and confidence in the Internet by promoting the use of fair information practices. We want this web site to demonstrate its commitment to your privacy. In this spirit, we disclose our information practices and agree to notify you of:

  1. What personally identifiable information of yours or third party personally identification is collected from you through the web site.
  2. The organization collecting the information.
  3. How the information is used.
  4. With whom the information may be shared.
  5. What choices are available to you regarding collection, use and distribution of the information.
  6. The kind of security procedures that are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under DSCoupons control.
  7. How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

If you feel that this company is not abiding by its posted privacy policy, you should first contact us. We will do our best to resolve your concerns.

Information Collection and Use

DSCoupons is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. DSCoupons collects information from our users at several different points on our website.

DSCoupons does NOT share any personally identifiable customer information with any 3rd parties, except as disclosed in this statement. See "Legal Disclaimer."

Registration

In order to use this website, an organization must first contact us to register. During registration an organization is required to give their contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact the organization about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest.

Again, we do not share any personally identifiable customer information with any 3rd parties, except in very limited circumstances below.

Orders

DSCoupons does not collect any order information from its users. During the shopping process, a user may be asked for this information by the Merchant. The Merchant will request that a user provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer's orders. If the Merchant has trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user. DSCoupons suggests that the user review the individual Merchant's Privacy Policy.

Cookies

DSCoupons.com serves both session and persistent cookies, which are pieces of data stored on the user's hard drive and/or browser, in order to facilitate the functioning of our site and service.

We use session ID cookies served from our domain, DSCoupons.com, to facilitate navigation while on our site. These are deleted when you close your browser. The persistent cookies that may be served from our domain, DSCoupons.com, are served to accurately account for your shopping. Consequently these types of cookies are tied to the initiating Cause's web site. However, NO personally identifiable information from your account is ever shared with any third party, except in the very limited circumstances listed below.

Please keep in mind that by serving our DSCoupons.com cookies and serving cookies from third parties, like our affiliated companies and advertisers, we are able to provide our service by keeping track of 'click thrus' and affiliate relationships. We do this by using an anonymous numeric shopper "site" ID that these affiliates cannot trace back or associate with the personal information submitted through that site. You can always remove persistent cookies. To do so review your browser's "help" file instructions. Even though you can still use our site if you remove cookies, you will not be able to receive credit without allowing them and in some cases may not be able to participate in special offers provided through the site. Because third party cookies are bits of data served from other sites we have no direct access to or control over these cookies or their use once they are set on our site.

Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users in the aggregate to enhance the experience on our site. For example, we may need to determine which advertisers receive the most 'clicks' so we can continue to provide the shopping venues that are relevant to you.

Remember though, NO personally identifiable information collected through our site will be accessible by our affiliated companies or our advertisers.

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, the user will not be able to participate in any of our Sweepstakes, Contests or monthly Drawings that may take place. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.

Some of our business partners use cookies on our site (for example, third party affiliate stores or advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information, except for site maintenance and reporting abuse or fraud.

Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)

Some of our third party affiliate organizations employs a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site 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. The main difference between the two is that clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.

Clear Gifs can "work with" existing cookies on a computer if they are both from the same Web site or affiliate organization. That means, for example, that if a person visited "www.companyX.com", which uses an affiliate organization's clear gif, the Web site [or affiliate organization] would match the clear gif's identifier and the affiliate organization's cookie ID number, to show the past online behavior for that computer. This collected information would then be given to the affiliate company [or Web site].

We also may use these types of clear gifs in our HTML-based emails in the same manner. Except for the clear gifs in emails, Clear gifs are not directly tied to users' personally identifiable information, only to the anonymous shopper ID. NO personally identifiable information from your account is ever shared with any third party, except in the very limited circumstances listed below.

Sharing

We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. Since we do not ship products, we do not use an outside shipping company to ship orders, or a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services.

We sometimes may partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

Legal Disclaimer

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.

Links

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we DSCoupons are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Newsletter

If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.

Surveys and Contests

From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

Tell-A-Friend

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend's name and email address. DSCoupons will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. DSCoupons stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. The friend may Contact Us to request the removal of this information from the database.

Security

This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

Our registration form does not ask users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number).

If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can Contact Us.

Supplementation of Information

In order for this website to properly fulfill its obligation to our users and their Causes, it is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from 3rd party sources.

For example, in order for us to process and send checks to Causes, we will need the mailing address for those Causes.

Special Offers

Established users may occasionally receive information on services, special deals, or a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see our choice and opt-out below.

Site and Service Updates

We also send the user site and service announcement updates. Users are not able to un-subscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email or phone.

Correction/Updating Cause Information

If a Cause's information changes (such as your zip code or mailing address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we have endeavored to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us. This can usually be done by emailing our Customer Support using our contact form: Contact Us.

Choice/Opt-out

Our users are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our sign-up form has an 'opt-out' mechanism (Member Preferences) so Members who use our site, but do not wish to receive any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists. Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials may opt-out of receiving these communications by Contacting Us.

You may also unsubscribe by Contacting Us and detailing any requests to us in the text of the email.

Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post a notice for those changes on our Homepage (www.DSCoupons.com) so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

Effective Date: January 1, 2005
