Our commitment to privacy:

Welcome to GIVINGETTING, where everything is donated.

This privacy policy is our firm commitment to protect the privacy of information about users of GIVINGETTING, and other services that we may develop (collectively "Services"). This privacy policy applies to information that you provide to us when you use our Service, whether as a registered or non-registered user of our Services.

During use of our website and Services, we collect various types of data, usage statistics, demographic and preference information and other personal information as described below.

When registering on our website or using certain features of our Services, we may collect Personally Identifiable Information about you. "Personally Identifiable Information" means information about you that may include, but is not limited to your username and email address.


In order to use our Services, we require GIVINGETTING Users to provide certain Personally Identifiable Information, when first becoming an GIVINGETTING User.

We use your Personally Identifiable Information mainly to provide the Services to you, as applicable, to track and provide analytics, and to administer your inquiries. We may also use your Personally Identifiable Information to contact you with GIVINGETTING information.

In addition, we collect certain information which cannot be used to personally identify any user, and which may be provided to third parties. Such non-personal data ordinarily includes non-identifiable aggregate, usage data, summary, and other behavioral data. For example, statistics regarding total users, information regarding types of Internet browsers used by users, and behavioral usage patterns. 

"Log Data" means information sent by your browser including, but not limited to your computer's IP address, referring HTTP address, current HTTP address, time of the access and other statistics. When you visit our website or use our Services, automatically we collect Log Data sent by your browser. We use the Log Data to analyze the use of our website and Services, for technical administration, to increase our website and Service's functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Services to our users needs.


Like many websites and platforms, we use cookies on our website and Services (by placing or reading them via your browser) to save your registration information for future logins. We also use cookies when you visit our website and Services to collect Log Data, as described in the Log Data section above. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting browser cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. 

Unsolicited Information

In addition to your username, any comments or submissions ("Unsolicited Information") that you post to our website or Services will be publicly available. All such Unsolicited Information will be deemed to be non-confidential and GIVINGETTING will be free to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute such Unsolicited Information to others without limitation or attribution. You should be aware that, if you voluntarily disclose Unsolicited Information online, that Unsolicited Information can be collected and used by others. For example, if you post your email address in comments sections or online forums, you may receive unsolicited messages from others. GIVINGETTING has no control over the use of Personally Identifiable Information that you voluntarily post in public forums or otherwise disclose while interacting with other users. Any such Personally Identifiable Information you choose to disclose should reflect how much you want other users to know about you. 

Third Party Providers. 

We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate the Services, to provide the Services on our behalf, to perform services related to administration of our website and Services (including, without limitation, maintenance, hosting and database management services, and administration). These third parties have access to your Personally Identifiable Information and Log Data only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

Links to Other Sites

Our website and Services contain links to other third party websites and services. If you choose to click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party's website or service. The fact that we link to a website or service is not an endorsement, authorization or representation that we are affiliated with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites or services. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit Personally Identifiable Information from you. Other websites and services follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the Personally Identifiable Information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.

Our commitment to data security

Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information in our possession and control, no security system can prevent against all potential security breaches, and we bear no liability for uses or disclosures of personal data or non-personal data arising in connection with the theft thereof. Likewise, you are responsible for safeguarding the confidentiality of passwords to our website and Services, and we bear no liability for access to, or use or disclosure of personal data if such access, use or disclosure arises in connection with the theft or disclosure (whether intentional or negligent) of such user's password.
