DonorDrive Platform Privacy Policy

Effective January 13, 2023

Welcome to DonorDrive

Global Cloud, Ltd.  dba DonorDrive (“DonorDrive”) is a commercial application and used by nonprofit organizations to handle event and campaign registrations, to solicit donations, and to promote fundraising pages (collectively, the “Service”). This Privacy Policy explains how DonorDrive, collects, uses, discloses, and otherwise processes your personal information in connection with our services provided through our and or services portals we maintain on behalf of our customers. 

This Privacy Policy is not intended to cover information collected by any third-party website.

This page is used to inform application users regarding our policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information if anyone decided to use our Service.

If you choose to use our Service, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation to this Policy.  

Customer Data

Data protection laws sometimes differentiate between “controllers” and “processors” of personal data. A “controller” determines the purposes and means (or the why and the how) of processing personal information. A “processor,” which is sometimes referred to as a “service provider,” processes personal information on behalf of a controller subject to contractual restrictions. 

As part of our business relationship with our customers, we are often asked to receive, gather, store, analyze, or otherwise process information, which may include personal information, on behalf of our customers. We refer to this type of information and personal information as “customer data.” When we process customer data, we generally act as a processor. This means we process customer data on behalf of our customers subject to restrictions set forth in our contracts with them. 

This Privacy Policy does not cover or address how we or our customers process customer data in connection with our role as our customers’ processor. Instead, this Privacy Policy only covers our processing of personal information in our capacity as a controller. In addition, we are generally not permitted to respond to individual requests relating to customer data. As a result, we recommend referring to the privacy notice of the organization with which you have a relationship for information on how they engage processors, like us, to process customer data on their behalf.

What is Personal Data?

When we use the term “personal data” in this Privacy Policy, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, to a person or household. It does not include aggregated or de-identified information that is maintained in a form that is not reasonably capable of being associated with or linked to a person.

Personal Data We Collect

While using our Service, we may require you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information to provide appropriate services and experiences.  The information that we request will be retained by us and used as described in this Privacy Policy.
