We partner with PayPal Giving Fund (PPGF) so you can donate to support or create fundraisers to benefit charities in the US. When you or your peers donate to your fundraiser to benefit a charity that receives funds from PPGF, the donation is to PPGF. PPGF then grants the money to that charity subject to its policies. PPGF also receives the donor’s name and contact information.
If you are a charity or non-profit organization and are established as such under the applicable laws of incorporation (“Charity”), and you are located in the PayPal Giving Fund databases of the United States, then we collect your name and email address. Thereafter, we will ask that you select your Charity and provide information to verify that you are a representative of said Charity. Our payment processors also collect and maintain information related to your withdrawal of funds from any fundraising campaign. For beneficiaries: Our payment processors collect your bank details as well as other information necessary to set up the withdrawals. For employees who donate: Our payment processors collect your credit card details and other information necessary to process the donation such as your home address.
2. What do we do with that information?
We keep that information in your user profile and the main purpose of this information is to keep you informed on the impact that you are making by supporting the charities and our platform. We will also use the information you provide to notify you about upcoming campaigns, fundraisers, or volunteering opportunities that we think you may be interested in for your favorite charities.

3. How do we share your information?
We do not sell, rent, or share your personal information with other entities. However, sometimes we are required to share your information by law. Some examples of this are subpoenas, court orders, and other legal requests that require us to possibly defend ourselves due to a lawsuit being brought against us. We may also share your information with law enforcement if we believe it will help in an investigation involving illegal activities. In the event that the IRS is inquiring with us about the legitimacy of a tax receipt that we have issued you for a donation, we will be obligated to share your information with the IRS.

We share your information with the beneficiaries of the fundraiser. For example, if you donate to a fundraiser, we share your name, email address and donation information you’ve provided in connection with your donation with the organiser or beneficiary, who may contact you. For example, if an individual starts a fundraiser for a Charity and you donate to that fundraiser, then if the information is requested, (i) the Charity can receive information about both the organiser, if not the same, and donors, and (ii) organiser can receive donor information. In the same scenario, the beneficiary may communicate with you about your donation and/or may rely on your information in order to comply with its legal and auditing requirements. Neki may also share user’s data to third parties in the event of a merger, acquisition of the company or shares of the company by another company.
