SHARE A DREAM SOLUTIONS

Share A Dream Solutions LLC (Share A Dream Solutions, we, us or our) operates a humanitarian social network located at www.share-a-dream.org (the Platform).

Our mission is to create a personal and sustainable link between local NPOs (NPOs) suffering from a lack of visibility, passionate volunteers (Volunteers, users, members) and corporations (Companies, Clients,) willing to get engaged with humanitarian projects. As such, we are creating the social humanitarian platform of tomorrow that connects people and generates real impact. For our clients, this is an incredible tool to engage their employees and allow them to donate their time, money and expertise to local NPOs around the world that need their help. Among other things, we provide web-based tools to facilitate philanthropy (donations), and volunteering (online and/or in the field). The Platform, as well as the services, features, content or applications that may be offered from time to time by us in connection with the Platform and/or our business are collectively referred to as the Platform.

SCOPE OF APPLICATION

This privacy policy (the Policy) applies to you if you are a visitor of the website and/or a user of our Platform (the User, you and your).

It describes how we and some of our trusted partners collect, use and disclose your protected personal data in relation to our Platform. Protected personal data means any information that you provide to us which personally identifies any person or entity, such as your name, email address or other data which can be reasonably linked to such information (the Personal Data). This Policy also describes your rights to access and control your Personal Data.

CONSENT

By visiting our website and/or using our Platform you agree to the collection and use of your Personal Data in accordance with this Policy.

WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED

Personal Data you provide us

If you are a visitor of our website and would like to: donate, download our brochure, request a demo, subscribe to our newsletter or contact us; you may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information) that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes. If you decide to subscribe to our newsletter, we also may have access to your location (collected by our mail automation Mail Chimp). These purposes include registering to receive email newsletters or other materials, requesting further information from us about projects and services, donating to us, ordering merchandise, making requests, submitting a form on our website, or simply asking a question. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way, whether it is online or offline. We ask for personal information so that we can fulfill your request and return your message. This information is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies. Share A Dream does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfill your request or complete your order, but you will still be free to browse the other sections of the websites owned and administered by Share A Dream. This means that you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.

If you are a member of our platform, all the above applies to you except that in order for you to be a user of our platform, you have to identify yourself. Additionally, since you will be able to volunteer online, we may also collect your “skills”, in order to use them in our matching algorithm to facilitate your “job” searches. Regarding the impact, we will use different metrics based on your activities (number of hours, and amount donated). However, if you decide to make the donation anonymously, the administrator of your company account, and any other members on the platform will not be able to see any amount given. Only us will use it to offer a “total-amount-given view” on your company’s profile, which is a sum of all donations made from your company.

During the course of your relationship with Share A Dream you may contact us by email, or in writing. We will retain this information also, supplementing the information we already have. We may also supplement any information you give us with information from social networks (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and others) information. This information will also be retained by us and held confidentially in your personal data file.

Information collected automatically

We will collect:

  • Log information (e.g. IP address, number and time of visits of the Platform by users)
  • Analytics information

We use third-party analytics tools (mainly Google Analytics) to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Platform. These tools collect information sent by your device or our Platform, including the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving the Platform. We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other Users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual User.

TO WHOM INFORMATION WE COLLECT IS SHARED?

Unless provided otherwise herein, Share A Dream will share your Personal Data only with your consent and the following rules.

Information collected automatically

Personal Data of visitors are held confidentially and are, as a rule, not shared, subject to the permitted use (as detailed below).

Personal Data collected from Companies

When a company gets an access to the Platform, it will be entitled to create and administrate a profile (the Company's Profile). The Company's Profile will be accessible either to all Users (level 1), to

certain registered company administrators (ex: HR Director, CEO, Chief Happiness Director) (level 2). As for now, no user outside of the company can access the profile of your company, unless if the administrator of the company’s profile decides otherwise.

Every user will be able to anonymize his actions on the Platform (ex: amount donated) from its Company and from other users. We ask the company to comply with Personal Data of others (e.g. their employees), notably by anonymizing the data so that any individual, who has not expressly authorized the use of his Personal Data, will no longer be identifiable.

We do not verify whether the data submitted by the Company contain Personal Data of third parties and do not provide any guarantee in this regard.

Personal Data collected from NPOs

We gather certain Personal Data from NPOs (1) and their administrator (2), such as (1) their name, location, activities, impact reports, jobs posted, financial projects for which they raise money; (2) their first and last name, job title, and key competences. This information will be accessible by any user and/or companies willing to help that NPO, as well as to visitors willing to donate to the NPO.

Permitted Use for all Personal Data
  • Share A Dream may share your Personal Data to service providers (e.g. payment processors, cloud provider). Our service providers will be given access to your Personal Data on a need to know basis to provide their services for the Platform under reasonable confidential terms.
  • If it is required under law to do so or we reasonably believe that such release is necessary to comply with applicable legislation or respond to a court order or to protect Share A Dream’s rights and interests.
  • If Share A Dream is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any Personal Data and give affected users notice before Personal Data is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

TO WHOM INFORMATION WE COLLECT IS SHARED?

As a rule, your Personal Data are stored as long as your Share A Dream’s account is active. Following termination or deactivation of your account, we may retain your Personal Data for a commercially reasonable time for backup, archival, audit and other commercially reasonable purposes.

In any event, we reserve the right to retain for an unlimited period of time information derived from your

Personal Data in such a way that you will no longer be identified or identifiable (pseudonymized or anonymized data).

SECURITY

We use commercially reasonable safeguards to help keep the information collected through the Platform secure and take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you access to your account.

However, Share A Dream cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to Share A Dream or guarantee that information on the Platform may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed. However, we are committed to provide the best service as possible. Best storing, classification, secured environment. Share A Dream partnered with a data protection industry-leader, Dathena S.A. and is regularly audited by this company to improve its data security policies and processes.

ACCESS TO AND MODIFICATION OF PERSONAL DATA

Whenever you use the Platform, we aim to provide you with access to your Personal Data we control. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete or to anonymize it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your Personal Data, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.

We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical.

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

Your access and use of the Platform is governed by the version of this Policy in effect on the date of access and use. We may modify this Policy at any time and without prior notice. If a revision, in our sole discretion, is material, we will notify you. You acknowledge that by accessing the Platform after we have made changes to this Policy, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of this Policy as modified. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Platform.
