When you interact with us through the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:

 

Personal Data and Entity Data That You Provide Through the Services: We collect Personal Data from you (including, but not limited to, your name, business or organization name, email address and location) when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact us with inquiries, register for access to the Services or use certain Services. Wherever Seedership collects Personal Data we make an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy.  We also collect Entity Data to facilitate connections and relationships between Entities, such as businesses and non-profit organizations, and we share this Entity Data between Entities when necessary or required to facilitate such business connections and relationships.

We collect this Personal Data and Entity Data for the purposes of providing the Services to you, as well as providing customer service, conducting research and improving the Services. For more details on why we collect your Personal Data and Entity Data and how we use it, please see the sections below entitled “Seedership’s Use of Information” and “Disclosure of Personal Data and Other Information.”  While you are under no obligation to provide any Personal Data or Entity Data, should you choose to withhold such information, we may not be able to provide you with some or all of the Services. 

By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data/Entity Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy and in accordance with the Terms of Service. If you provide Personal Data and/or Entity Data to the Services, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of Seedership and the authorized third parties referred to herein located in the United States.

Non-Personal Data: When you interact with Seedership through the Services, we automatically receive and store certain non-identifiable personal information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. Examples of this non-identifiable personal information include the type of internet browser or mobile device you use, any website from which you have come to the Services, your operating system, location data (which is anonymous and where you log in through the Platform you will be asked if you consent to the Services accessing your location, which can be updated at any time in your device settings) (“Non-Personal Data”). Seedership may store such Non-Personal Data itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Seedership affiliates, agents or service providers. The Services may use such Non-Personal Data to assist us in providing effective Services and to collect broad demographic information.

Donation Information: As part of our Services, we track your Donations to Campaigns, and the Donations your Campaigns receive.

If you are under the age of 13, please do not use the Services and/or submit any Personal Data through the Services. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Policy by instructing their children never to provide Personal Data on the Services without their permission.

Seedership’s Use of Information

Seedership uses the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by email, we will use the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. Also, if you provide Personal Data about yourself in order to obtain access to or make use of particular features of the Services, we will use your Personal Data to provide you with access to such services and to monitor your use of such services.

Seedership may also use your Personal Data, Non-Personal Data, Donation Information, Location Information, and Social Network Information (collectively herein, “Collected Data”) collected through the Services to help us in providing the Services, processing transactions, fulfilling requests for information, receiving and sending communications, updating marketing lists, analyzing data, providing support services, or other tasks from time to time.

Seedership may, with your consent, use your Personal Data to contact you to tell you about services we believe will be of interest to you where permitted by applicable law. If we do so, each marketing communication we send to you will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future marketing communications. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future marketing communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us as indicated below.

Seedership may use Entity Data to facilitate connections between your Entity and other Entities with which you partner or connect to through our Services.  Such Entity Data may thus be shared between Entities.  Seedership makes no warranty regarding the use or misuse of such shared Entity Data by other Entities.  You should only share Entity Data through the Services that is not considered private, confidential, or otherwise should not be disclosed to anyone outside your Entity.

Seedership often conducts research on its users, their interests, and behavior based on the Collected Data and other information provided to us. The information for this research is compiled and analyzed on a de-identified, aggregate basis, and Seedership may share this aggregate, de-identified data with its affiliates, agents, business partners, and customers. Seedership may also disclose aggregated, de-identified user data in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

Seedership may conduct research on its users, their interests, and behavior based on the Collected Data and other information provided to us, on a non- de-identified, non-aggregate basis for purposes relating to the Services.  For example, Seedership may wish to identify Campaigns that may be of interest to you. Except as expressly stated in this Privacy Policy or the Terms, Seedership will only share this non-aggregated non- de-identified data with those affiliates, agents, business partners, and customers subject to an agreement that restricts the use of this data to the terms of this Privacy Policy, except as described in the section entitled “Disclosure of Personal Data and Other Information” below.

If you use any feature of the Services permitting you to communicate with third parties (such as to refer a third party to the Services), we reserve the right to identify you as the person who has made the referral in any messages that are sent to them. In addition to sending the foregoing communications, we may also send reminders or related messages to you and to third parties on your behalf from time to time where permitted by applicable law. In each case, any such communications sent to third parties using Third-Party Personal Data will provide a means to “opt-out” of receiving further communication of the same nature.

If Seedership intends to use any Personal Data in any manner or for any purpose that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy, we will obtain your prior informed consent as required by applicable law.

 

Disclosure of Personal Data/Entity Data and Other Information

There are certain circumstances in which we may share your non- de-identified, non-aggregated Personal Data and/or Entity Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data and/or Entity Data may be part of the transferred assets.

Other Entities: When two or more Entities connect with each other through the Services, related Entity Data may be shared automatically between those Entities.  Only the Entity Data authorized to be shared with other Entities will be shared through such connections.

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: Seedership, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information and maintaining databases. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function and require them to only use the information for the purposes for which it was collected.

Legal Requirements: Seedership may disclose your Personal Data or Entity Data if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, including but not limited to compliance with State and Federal regulatory and administrative agencies or in response to a subpoena, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Seedership, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
