3for5 Foundation Privacy Policy

Date of Last Revision: April 5th, 2009

3for5's Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how we collect and use the personal information you decide to share, and help you make informed decisions when using 3for5, located at www.3for5.org and its directly associated domains (collectively, "3for5" or "Website").

By using or accessing 3for5, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Information We Collection

When you visit 3for5 you provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us and Web Site use information collected by us as you interact with our Web Site.

When you register with 3for5, you provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, your email address, your telephone number, your address, and any other personal or preference information that you provide to us.

When you enter 3for5, we collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all 3for5 visitors. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using "cookies." A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you come back to 3for5. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable this convenience feature.

When you use 3for5, you may set up your personal profile, form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, and transmit information through various channels. We collect this information so that we can provide you the service and offer personalized features. When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information.

You post User Content (as defined in the 3for5 Terms of Use) on the Site at your own risk. Although we allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your pages, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other Users with whom you may choose to share your pages and information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that User Content you post on the Site will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other Users have copied or stored your User Content.

Any improper collection or misuse of information provided on 3for5 is a violation of the 3for5 Terms of Service and should be reported directly to 3for5.

If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for information needed to send the invitation, such as your friend's email address. We will send your friend an email or instant message in your name inviting him or her to visit the site, and may send up to two reminders to them. 3for5 stores this information to send invitations and reminders, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, to allow you to see invitations you have sent, and to track the success of our invitations. Your friend may contact us to request that we remove this information from our database.

By using 3for5, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.

Children Under Age 13

3for5 does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for 3for5 or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on 3for5. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact the 3for5 Foundation directly.

Use of Information Obtained by 3for5

When you register with 3for5, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed in the 3for5 Network to enable 3for5 users to see information about the people participating in the 3for5 Movement. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by 3for5 that we think you may find valuable.

Profile information is used by 3for5 primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service and to be presented to others permitted to view that information by your privacy settings.

Profile information you submit to 3for5 may be available to other users of 3for5 if you indicate such in your preferences settings. Your name, nickname, city, state/province, country, and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the 3for5 network and those limited pieces of information may be made available to third party search engines. This is primarily so your friends can view your aggregate donation information as a part of the 3for5 Movement. This information will not be used in search results if you elect to not display this information in your privacy settings.

3for5 may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. For instance, if an invited friend joins the 3for5 Movement, you may receive an email alerting you to that fact.

Generally, you may opt out of such emails from the Preferences page, though 3for5 reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.

3for5 may use information in your profile without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as aggregating total donation amounts, personalizing promotions so that we can provide you 3for5.

We may use information about you that we collect from other sources, including but not limited to Internet sources such as external social networking websites, blogs, instant messaging services, and other users of 3for5, to supplement your profile. Where such information is used, we generally allow you to specify in your preferences settings that you do not want this to be done or to take other actions that limit the connection of this information to your profile.
