Privacy Policy

Crowdfunding Services LLC ("CFS") recognizes that your privacy is very important to you and that you have a right to control your personal information and that when you provide personal information about yourself to another party it is an act of trust.

This Privacy Policy applies to the following web sites owned and/or maintained by CFS, including c3funding.com and crowdfundingservices.net.

These web sites are collectively referred to in this Privacy Policy as the “Site”. Unless you give CFS explicit consent to act otherwise, the following policy will govern how CFS handles your personal information and safeguards your privacy.

By using any Site, you are giving us your express consent to use all the information collected about you as described in this policy. This includes the release of such information to owners of each respective Site and third parties as described below.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

CFS collects two different types of information: voluntary information, which you provide (such as registration information for events, membership information, or shipping and billing information) and user information provided by your computer each time you visit this site (such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or browser). The information that CFS collects helps to provide information and service to you. This information may be aggregated with that of others.

Your information may be used by CFS or the respective owners of the Site. CFS will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to commercial entities. We may, however, provide your information to third parties with whom we have a relationship to offer you products and services we believe may be of interest to you - such as chat rooms, message boards, or other similar discussion forums. Please be aware that any information you divulge in these arenas is deemed public information and is not protected.

Cookies and Other Technologies

The Sites, online services, interactive applications, email messages, and advertisements may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. A cookie is a small file or part of a file stored on a World Wide Web user's computer, created and subsequently read by a web site server, and containing personal information (e.g. user identification code, customized preferences, or a record of pages visited). These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of the Site people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. To the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

We do not use cookies to obtain any personal information about you before or after you leave the Site. You can reset your browser to either refuse all cookies or to notify you when you are receiving a cookie and allow you to decide whether or not to accept it. We gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the Site, to learn about user behavior on the Site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. CFS may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.

Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.

Links to Other Sites

As a courtesy, CFS may provide links to other sites that are neither owned nor controlled by CFS. These third party sites, however, are NOT subject to or bound by this Privacy Policy. Such third party sites may or may not have their own privacy policies and may or may not collect personal information from you or place cookies on your browser. CFS is not responsible for the privacy policies or any information collection practices of these sites or any resulting damages.

Sharing Personal Information

CFS does not share personal information with other companies.

Others

It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities for CFS to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate or if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our mission, our operations, or our users. In the event of a transfer, reorganization, merger, or sale of the website, we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.

Protection of Personal Information

CFS takes precautions to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

CFS uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where financial information is collected. When making donations to CFS or purchasing any products sold through our websites, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal information while it’s transmitted over the Internet.

When you use some CFS services or applications or post on a CFS forum, chat room, or social networking service, the personal information you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances.

Integrity and Retention of Personal Information

CFS makes it easy for you to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

Children

People under 18 are not permitted to use the site and so this privacy policy makes no provision for their use of the site.

Updates and amendments to the Privacy Policy

CFS reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions of this Privacy Policy, at any time. It is your responsibility to check this Privacy Policy periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes will mean that you accept and agree to the changes.
