HIRED will never sell, trade, share or rent your personal information to any other third party without your prior consent. This policy applies to both website usage and to donations made by phone, mail or in person.

By using this website, you accept this privacy policy.

INFORMATION GATHERING

Signing up for email updates

When you sign up to receive email updates, we ask for your name and email address.

Donating online

When you donate online by credit card, you must submit your name, credit card number and billing information. This information allows us to process and fulfill your donation and notify you of your donation status.

Third-party financial institutions

HIRED works with a third-party online fundraising tool called www.razoo.com. All transaction and credit card information entering the Razoo system is encrypted using SSL certificates from VeriSign.

Your IP address

An IP address is a number assigned to your computer automatically when you use the Internet. We use your IP address along with other users’ IP addresses to track usage patterns and improve our website. At no time is your IP address linked with anything that personally identifies the owner of the IP address.

Other tracked information

When you request speakers, register as a campaigner, request information about running a campaign, enter a sweepstakes, complete a survey, vote in online polls or any other function that uses a submit/go feature, we may track personal information you provide in our secure database of community supporters.

INFORMATION USES

Usage tracking

HIRED tracks user traffic patterns, but this tracking is not associated with individual users.

Cookies

A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your computer’s hard drive when you visit them. We only use cookies to make your experience at our website more pleasant — not track personally identifiable information about you.

A cookie can’t read data off your hard drive or read cookie files created by other sites. You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you don’t know how, use your browser’s help function. By turning cookies off, you may limit the sites you can visit.

Community Supporters Database

HIRED retains information provided by users in a secure database. This database may be used to verify donation transactions, thank supporters for their contributions, keep supporters informed or to solicit future donations.

We understand that most people don’t want a lot of mail or email, so we keep our communication frequency within reasonable limits. You may request removal from our database. All information is secure and credit card information is not held in this database. Information in this database is not shared, traded, sold or rented to any third parties.

INFORMATION SHARING

Third-party financial institutions

HIRED works with a third-party credit card company, www.razoo.com, the same way as other e-commerce websites. All transaction and credit card information entering the Razoo system is encrypted using SSL certificates from VeriSign.

Tracking information

HIRED may share macro-level tracking information with third parties for various reasons, such as to attract potential advertisers and/or grant makers and to enhance the effectiveness of the website through consultants. At no time will personally identifiable information that you provide be shared with any of these or any other third parties.
