2.0 What information we store about you

When you sign up to Everyclick, the only personal information we require are your name and email address. You also choose a password and select a charity to support.

If you sign-up using Facebook, we will store a link to your Facebook account and require you to provide the requested permissions (access to your full name and email address). If you deny or retract these permissions then you will be unable to access your Everyclick account.

Within your account, you may optionally provide more personal information such as your date of birth and gender. You may amend or remove this information at any time via your account.

We store information regarding your activity on Everyclick, including searches, donations, Give as you Live activity (including searches and tracked purchases), and technical information such as your browser and IP address. We may use external tools, such as Google Analytics, to collect such information.

If you enter a competition we run, then we may store information entered on the competition entry form. This is usually just an email address and name.

3.0 Why we can use information about you

Data protection laws, including General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018, require us to have a valid legal reason for using your information. You may find out more about these legal reasons on the ICO website.

As per our terms and conditions, any use by you of our website or product consitutes acceptance of our terms and conditions. As such, your information is used to provide the services described by our terms, including the provision of fundraising pages and the payment of donations. Emails relating to your account or donations may also be sent by us to the email address you provide. This is to fulfil the contract that the terms and conditions serve as.

If your consent is provided (either at the point of signup or by updating your account), we may use your information to contact you regarding our product (or other products provided by GAYL) - see section 4.0 How we may contact you for more information.

If your consent is provided (either at the point of signup or by updating your account), we share your information with your chosen charity - see section 4.0 How we may contact you for more information.

For information regarding your activity, as described in section 2, we are using our legitimate interest to help us understand use of our product and behaviour of users; and to aid decision making regarding further development of our product in order to provide a better service to you and all our users.

4.0 How we may contact you

To help you make the most of your fundraising and to maximise what you can raise for charity, we would like to contact you to keep you updated with Everyclick and other products that GAYL run.

You can provide your consent for this at the point of signup or from within your account. You can unsubscribe at any time, either using the 'unsubscribe' link in our emails or via your account.

Your opt-out status does not affect the sending of transactional emails - for example emails confirming a donation or emails relating to accessing your account.

If you contact us, for instance via phone or email, you give us permission to contact you relating to your query. Doing so will not result in your details being added to any promotional email lists.

If you are not signed up to Everyclick, but have entered a competition then you will agreed to our competition terms and conditions. This includes giving us permission to send you promotional emails relating to Everyclick and other products and services we may offer (including Give as you Live) - unless you opt out at the point of entry or at a later date.

If you have provided us with your contact information in person, for example at an industry event, then we may be able to contact you including sending a follow-up email or promotional emails. This will depend on the circumstances in which you provided your information.

5.0 How we use your information

The personal information we store may be used to tailor our service to you. This could involve us displaying different content on our website based on your data and preferences.

We may also use your information - including personal, technical and usage data - for internal purposes such as statistical analysis. This is so that we can understand how our products and services are being used and to aid the decisions we make.

6.0 How data may be shared

You can decide if your personal information is shared with your supported charity. This can be done at the point of sign-up or later via your account. The charity may therefore contact you and you will be subject to their own privacy policy.

Donation data is made accessible to charities - this data includes your name, email address and full address. Donation data for other Give as you Live products is also available to charities - this data is aggregated where appropriate. If you requested for your details not to be shared, then donation data will be anonymised (i.e. any identifing information such as names, emails or addresses are removed).

Please note that if you change your charity, your information will still be accessible to your previously supported charities (if you chose to share it with them). If you choose to withdraw your consent, please be aware that the charity may have already downloaded your information to their own systems. If you are concerned about this, please either contact us or contact the charity directly.

We may publicly display basic personal information - for example showing a list of recent donations including your name and amount raised. You have the option within your account to change your publically-displayed name or to change it to 'Anonymous'. If you don't have an account and are making a direct donation, you may choose to not have your name publically displayed.

We may use a variety of tools and services - including, but not limited to, email marketing tools, Facebook advertising tools, and Google advertising/analytical tools - which may involve uploading and processing your data in order to provide a service to us. Such tools may also track and record activity on our websites - doing so may involve the placing of cookies.

Outside of these scenarios, we do not pass your personal data onto any third parties without your explicit content.
