Information that is kept private

In this section we will describe which data will be kept private, meaning that it will not be visible publicly and will not be shared with other users. We are very serious about maintaining your privacy and keeping your data secure. The types of information that are kept private include:

  • Your payment information. Fund by Cell does not ask you for or hold any of your payment information; rather, if you choose to make a payment, you will provide your information to a partner with payment processors such as WePay. The payment processor partner is the only entity that asks you for and receives this information;
  • Your IP address;
  • Your phone number;
  • Your login and password; and
  • Any communications that you send to us. This can include when you contact us to ask for support, send us comments, ask us questions, or report problems to us.
Your Personal Data and Third-Party Services or Entities

We may share your Personal Data with third party entities with no further notice to you under these circumstances:

  • When it is necessary for your use of the Services, for example, when we partner with payment processors or hire third party companies to maintain databases. Another examples is that we may share your location based information with our mapping provider in order to provide you with search results tailored to your geographic area, location-based services, and other personalized content. When sharing Personal Information with third parties in order to fulfill the Services, we only share the information necessary for them to perform their specific function;
  • In the event that we sell or buy businesses or assets in order to develop our business. If we make a corporate sale, reorganization, merger, dissolution, or comparable event that involves transfer of assets, Personal Data may be included in the assets transferred;
  • We may share your data for any additional purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.
  • If you have opted in to receive notices about other campaigns that may be interesting to you, we may share your Personal Data with those other campaigns.

We require that any third-party services with whom we share your data protect your personal information to the same standards that we do.

Additionally, we reserve the right to share your personal information when we believe that disclosing this information is reasonably necessary to comply with the law, to comply with law enforcement, to protect Fund by Cell's legal rights, to prevent abuse, to prevent fraud, to protect against legal liability, or to act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of the public or of users of the Services.

Information that is shared with other users

In this section we will describe which data is shared only with other users. We will share some of your information with the user who creates a campaign when you donate to that campaign. The campaign creator will have access to your account name, the donation amount you have pledged, and the reward you select from the campaign. If you have selected the option that it is acceptable to share your information with other campaigns that are similar to the one in which you are donating, we may share your Personal Information with those other campaigns. If you donate to a campaign, the campaign creator will never have access to your credit card details or other payment processing information.

When you donate to a campaign, if that campaign is successfully funded (your credit card payment successful occurs), then the creator will be given access to the email address you used to create your Fund by Cell account. Additionally, the campaign creator may send you a survey requesting necessary information in order to provide you with your reward, such as your shirt size if you selected a clothing reward, or your mailing address if the campaign creator needs it to mail you your reward. The campaign creator will receive any information that you share by filling out these surveys.

Anonymous information from your use of the Services may also be shared with campaign creators in the form of routine traffic analytics, which provide creators with anonymized information about the ways people find out about their campaigns, visit their campaign pages, and interact with their campaign pages.

Also, if you use Fund by Cell's Facebook feature, we will show you which Campaigns your Facebook friends have funded, and your friends using this tool will also be able to see which Campaigns you have funded. We ask your permission before posting anything to your Facebook, Twitter, or other third-party accounts.
