  • Our Site uses Cookies and similar technologies to distinguish you from other users of our Site. A “Cookie” is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer, mobile phone or other device, and allows us to recognize you as a user when you return to our website using the same device and web browser and enables ShoppingGives to collect information about how you use our Site.  This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our Site and may also use such technologies to track you across the Internet and to display targeted advertisements to you on our Site and third party websites and social media platforms based on your preferences and likely interests.  Information gathered through Cookies may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, and time spent using the Site. If you do not agree to our use of Cookies, you should set your browser settings accordingly or not use the Site.

Third-Party Links

This Site may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you. We are not responsible for the practices employed by any websites and/or services linked to and/or from the Site and do not control these third-party websites. Please remember that when you use a link to go from the Site to another website and/or service, our Privacy Policy does not apply to such third-party websites and/or services. Your browsing and interaction on any third-party website and/or service, including those that have a link on the Site, are subject to such third party's own rules and policies. In addition, you agree that we are not responsible and do not have control over any third-parties that you authorize to access your personal information. If you are using a third-party website and/or service and you allow them to access your personal information, you do so at your own risk.  When you leave our Site, we encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.

Public Forums

Any information you may disclose on our Site, such as in blogs, on message boards, or on other public areas on the Site, becomes public information. Please exercise caution when disclosing personal information in these public areas.  We are not responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of such information.  The Site may also allow you to connect with us on, share on, and use third-party websites, applications and services.  Please be mindful of your personal privacy needs as you choose what to share and make public.  As a reminder, we do not control the privacy practices of third parties, so please contact such third parties to learn more about their privacy practices.

Data security

We use commercially reasonable efforts to secure your personal information from unauthorized access to and/or unauthorized alteration, disclosure and/or destruction and we have implemented technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data provided via the Site from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.  We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it, and limit access to such information to only those Service Providers that need to know such information for the purposes of providing access to and/or use of the Site and related services and for purposes of this Privacy Policy.  Your account is protected by password for your privacy and security.  We periodically review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems. Because the internet is not a completely secure environment, ShoppingGives cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to ShoppingGives or guarantee that information on the Site may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, and/or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical and/or managerial safeguards.  Please do your part to help ShoppingGives.  You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to emails between you and ShoppingGives, at all times.  Please limit your access to your computer and/or mobile device and/or browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.  We are not responsible for the functionality, privacy and/or security measures of any other organization.

Data Retention

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.  To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use and/or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.  In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.  We may retain information (including without limitation your personally identifiable information) for a commercially reasonable time for backup, archival, audit purposes, and/or to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce agreements.  In some cases, if you choose not to provide ShoppingGives with requested information, you may not be able to use and/or access all of the Site.

You can request further details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal data by contacting us or reach out to us with any information you'd like deleted or anonymized.

Access to Information

In the event you need to access and/or correct certain information that you have provided to ShoppingGives, you can visit your account settings portion of the Site.  Upon your request in writing, ShoppingGives will provide you with copies of the personal information that we have on file.  If the information is inaccurate, you are required to let us know as soon as reasonably possible so that we can update such information.

What We May Need From You

Additional Information

If you request information from us, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity to ensure you have the right to access the personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights related thereto).  This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to a person that does not have the right to receive it.  We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

Time Limit to Respond

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within thirty (30) calendar days from our receipt of written notice. Occasionally, it may take us longer than thirty (30) calendar days if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.


By using the Site and related services, you acknowledge that monetary damages may not be a sufficient remedy for unauthorized disclosure of information and there is significant potential liability in cases of onward transfers of personal data (including personally identifiable information) and data to third parties and therefore agree that ShoppingGives shall be entitled, without waiving any other rights or remedies, to seek such injunctive or equitable relief as may be deemed proper by a court of competent jurisdiction.


The governing language of this Privacy Policy is English, which shall prevail over any other languages used in any translated document.
