Donor Privacy

ChadTough abides by the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ Donor Bill of Rights.  We may collect and maintain certain additional information about you in connection with our donation activities.  For example, when you make a donation, we collect additional contact information in connection with processing your donation and gift information, including the size and frequency of donations and information about the nature and circumstances of the donation.   To process your donation, we use payment services with strong security platforms.

When you select to make a donation “in honor of” or “in memory of” someone, we will share your name and contact information with their family unless you have indicated you wish to make an anonymous donation.  We also collaborate on fundraising with families with children who have battled pediatric brain cancer  (“Family Partners”).  If you make a donation “in honor of” or “in memory of” the child of a Family Partner, we will share the amount of your donation with the Family Partner unless you have indicated a preference to keep the amount anonymous.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

We use third-party analytics service providers, such as Google Analytics, to measure traffic and usage trends and to help us better understand your use of, and interaction with, the Services.  These third-parties may use cookies, pixel tags, local storage, and other similar technologies (collectively, “cookies”) to collect information from your browser or device.  By using the Services, you consent to the use of cookies and similar technologies.  For more information on how Google uses data when you use the Services, click here.

Do-Not-Track Signals and Similar Mechanisms.  Some mobile and web browsers transmit “do-not-track” signals.  Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them.  We currently do not take action in response to these signals.

Your Rights and Choices

Access, Deletion, and Similar Rights.  You may be entitled, in accordance with applicable law, to object to or request restriction of processing of your information, and to request access to, rectification, deletion, and portability of your information or more information about our information practices.  Requests should be submitted to info@chadtough.org, as set out below.  If you become aware of changes or inaccuracies in your information, you should inform us of such changes so that the information may be updated or corrected.  We may verify your request, such as by requesting additional information from you.  You may be entitled, in accordance with applicable law, to submit a request through an authorized agent. 

E-mail Marketing Communications.  We may use your information to send you direct marketing and promotional materials relating to our organization or related products (including by email) on our or a third party’s behalf.  For example, we might send you information about upcoming events.  If you do not want us to use your information in this way please let us know using the contact information below.

Cookie Preferences.  In addition, you may be able to refuse or disable cookies by adjusting your web browser settings.  Some browsers have options that allow the visitor to control whether the browser will accept cookies, reject cookies, or notify the visitor each time a cookie is sent.  Because each web browser is different, please consult the instructions provided by your web browser (typically in the “help” section).  Please note that you may need to take additional steps to refuse or disable Local Shared Objects and similar technologies.  For example, Local Shared Objects can be controlled through the instructions on Adobe’s Setting Manager page.  If you choose to refuse, disable, or delete these technologies, some of the functionality of the Services may no longer be available to you and any differences in service are related to the data.  Deleting cookies may in some cases cancel the opt out selection in your browser

You also may be able to control our collection and use of your location information through your mobile device or app settings.

Children

We do not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13 without parental consent or as otherwise permitted by applicable law.
