Effective Date: September 1, 2018
2. First up, we want you to know this:
You control your personal information on the Inspired Platform. We will never disclose your email address, transaction history, or other information to any third-party for their marketing purposes without you first authorizing that third-party to access such information. This allows you to use the Inspired Platform without receiving a whole lot of direct marketing you don’t want.
All companies that you do business with choose whether and how they want share your personal information. Federal law gives you the right to limit some, but not all, of that sharing. Federal law also requires companies to tell you how they collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.
4. What information do we collect?
Personal Information: Inspired collects some of your identifying information in connection with your profile, depending on how you use the Inspired Platform. When you create an Inspired Member Account (whether through an Inspired App or Inspired website), engage in a Program, submit content to Inspired, complete a survey, send us feedback, request information about the Inspired Platform, apply for a job, or sign up for special offers from third-parties, Inspired may collect information from you, which could include the following (collectively, “Personal Information”):
- first and last name
- mailing address
- email address
- mobile phone number
- date of birth
Financial Information: In order to use the Inspired Platform in connection with payments to merchants, you will need to link a payment instrument, such as a debit card account number, to your Inspired Member Account (“Financial Information”). Inspired will only collect Financial Information from Members using a secure, transparent pass through to our third-party data vault and payment gateway provider. Inspired will never store your Financial Information itself.
Web Tracking Information: Web Tracking Information: Inspired and its third-party service providers may use web tracking technologies, such as cookies, web beacons, pixel tags and clear GIFs, to collect data related to usage of the Inspired Platform, the Programs, and web and email marketing conducted by or on behalf of Inspired. Such data may include:
- The address of the websites you visited before and after you visited the Inspired Platform,
- The type of browser you are using,
- Your Internet Protocol (IP) address, and
- What pages in the Inspired Platform you visit and what links you clicked on.
In order to collect Web Tracking Information and to make your use of the Inspired Platform more efficient, we may store cookies on your computer. Inspired and third-party contractors engaged to provide services on behalf of Inspired may also use web tracking technologies that are placed in web pages on the Inspired Platform or in email communications to collect information about actions that users take when they interact with the Inspired Platform or such email communications. Web Tracking Information is not correlated by Inspired to individual users. Some Web Tracking Information may include data, such as IP address data, that is unique to you. You may be able to modify your browser settings to alter which web tracking technologies are permitted when you use the Inspired Platform, but this may affect the performance of the Inspired Platform.
5. How does Inspired use and share your information?
All companies need to share customers’ personal information to run their everyday business. In this section, we explain the reasons that companies can share their customers’ personal information; the reasons Inspired chooses to share information; and whether you can limit this sharing.
Personal Information: Inspired will use and store your Personal Information to deliver the Inspired Platform to you (including purchases, donation tracking, and system notifications); to notify you of giving opportunities; to improve our products and services; to investigate (and remedy) fraudulent or allegedly fraudulent activity; and to perform aggregated data analysis.
Inspired does not sell or rent its mailing list, and we will not disclose your email address to any third-party for marketing purposes, unless you specifically authorize a third-party to access your information. Inspired will disclose your Personal Information to third-parties only in the following limited circumstances:
- Inspired may allow third-parties, who are performing marketing services, delivering goods, administering promotions, analyzing data and usage of the Inspired Platform, or operating the Inspired Platform or providing support and maintenance services for the Inspired Platform to access Personal Information. We require third-parties to use the Personal Information they access only in connection with the services they perform for us and never for any marketing or other purposes.
Aggregate Information: Inspired may also use Personal Information to create aggregated data for analytical purposes. This statistical information does not contain any individual identifying information or contact information and is used to understand our customer base as a whole and to better serve our market. Inspired reserves the right to share such aggregated, non-identifiable data with third-parties.
Web Tracking Information: Inspired uses Web Tracking Information to administer the Inspired Platform and to understand how well our Inspired Platform is working, and to develop aggregate, statistical information on usage of the Inspired Platform. Inspired may disclose Web Tracking Information, without individual identifying information, to third-parties including but not limited to advertisers and advertising agencies, in order for Inspired and such third-parties to analyze the performance of the Inspired Platform and the behavior of users, to operate and improve the Inspired Platform.
Email Communications: By providing your email address you are opting in to receive both administrative and promotional emails concerning the Inspired Platform, including new features, promotions and Programs. If you wish to opt out of promotional emails, you may do so by following the “unsubscribe” instructions in the email or by contacting Inspired Support. All Inspired Members receive administrative emails. If you wish to opt out of administrative emails, you must contact Inspired to delete your account entirely and cease use of the Inspired Platform, as described below.
6. Privacy settings/opt out.
If you would like to opt out of your use of the Inspired Platform (your Inspired Membership), please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-205-9347. We will promptly disable your Inspired Member Account. You may also request to opt-out of promotional email communications the same way. Disabling your Inspired Membership will not remove records of past transactions or delete information stored in our data backups and archives, as required by law. Data on past transactions and data stored in backups and archives will be deleted in the normal course of Inspired’s business. You may elect to opt-out at any time after registering for the Inspired Platform.

Security: We use reasonable security precautions to protect the security and integrity of your Personal Information in accordance with this Policy and all applicable laws. However, no Internet transmission is completely secure, and we cannot guarantee that security breaches will not occur. Without limitation of the foregoing, we are not responsible for the actions of hackers and other unauthorized third-parties.
