Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was last updated on March 11, 2016
Information that is made Public

In this section we will describe which information is made public. Each account that is created through Fund by Cell will have a publicly accessible profile page. Whether you are creating an account in order to start a campaign, donate, or participate in the community, when you create an account with us, we make a basic profile page that includes your account name, the date you created the account, and a list of any campaigns that you have launched. While the profile page is publicly visible, it is not searchable through Fund by Cell or through search engines (such as Google). However, when your account name is visible on Fund by Cell, including when you post comments, send messages, or donate to campaigns, other people can click on your account name, and this will allow them to see your profile. Details that can be viewed on your profile or elsewhere on Fund by Cell include:

  • Your account name
  • Any information you decide to add to your profile, including your biography, your picture, or your location
  • The creation date of your account (coming in later 2016)
  • A list of all campaigns that you've launched
  • Whether you have "liked" a project update on any user's campaign (coming in later 2016)
  • Any comments you've posted on campaigns / on the Fund by Cell website
  • If you use Fund by Cell's Facebook feature to link your Fund by Cell and Facebook accounts, your Fund by Cell Profile page will display your number of Facebook friends and will include a link to your Facebook Profile information (coming in later 2016.)

Each campaign page has a list of each user who has backed their project, listed under the project's Community Tab. Please be aware that your account name will be visible under this tab on any campaigns you donate to. If you are concerned about protecting the privacy of your personal identity, do not use the Fund by Cell service. You cannot choose an account name that does not share your personal name.

Please be aware that any Personal Information that you share as user content (such as in comments, on your Profile page, and so forth) is available to the public with no privacy or confidentiality. Even if you later try to remove this publicly available user content, copies of this information may still be viewable in cached and archived pages, and other users may have copied or stored this information. You may request that we remove your personal information that you have shared through user content by emailing 'info@fundbycell.com. We may not always be able to remove your personal information, and if this occurs we will contact you to let you know that we are unable to fulfill your request and why.

Additionally, if you create a campaign, we will ask you to verify your identity before launching your campaign. The name that you verify (your "Verified Name") will be visible publicly on your account profile as well as on any campaigns that you launch. Your campaign location (city and state) will also be publicly visible on your account profile, (coming in later 2016.)

Also, if you choose to use the features offered by Fund by Cell that allow you to make posts to third party Social Networking Services about your Fund by Cell activities, you acknowledge that these activities will be visible to whomever you have enabled to view your posts on these Social Networking Services, including possibly your friends, followers, subscribers, or the public depending on the settings that you have chosen through these third party Social Networking Services.

Another public use of information is that we display endorsements of Fund by Cell on our website, and sometimes we share users' personal testimonials. If we wish to use your testimonial, we will first obtain consent from you, and if you consent, then we will display your testimonial and your name. You may at any time contact us at 'info@fundbycell.com to update or delete your testimonial.

Children

Children under the age of 18 are not permitted to use Fund by Cell without the supervision of parents or legal guardians. We recommend that parents and legal guardians of children under the age of 18 monitor their children's use of the Internet including use of the Services. We encourage parents and legal guardians to instruct their children to never share Personal Data on the Services without their permission and thus to help enforce our Privacy Policy.

The policy of Fund by Cell is to never knowingly collect Personal Data from children under the age of 13. We are committed to rapidly removing any Personal Data in our possession from a child under the age of 13 as soon as we learn of it. Please do not share or in any way submit Personal Data through the Services to Fund by Cell if you are under the age of 13. Please use the Services only with the adult supervision of your parents or legal guardians if you are between the ages of 13 and 17. If for any reason you believe that we may have received any Personal Data from a child under the age of 13, please email and notify us at 'info@fundbycell.com, and we will delete that information from our databases as quickly as possible.

Fund by Cell is committed to complying with the California Eraser law. This allows you to request us to remove any publicly posted personally identifiable content that you have shared on our Site if you are a minor and a California resident. If you meet these criteria and wish for us to remove such information, please contact us at 'info@fundbycell.com and share a link to the content you wish to have removed as well as your age. Fund by Cell is not responsible for content that you made public on Fund by Cell in the case that this information is taken from this Site and posted to a third party Site.

Security

Fund by Cell is committed to protecting your Personal Data provided to us via the Services from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction, and we take reasonable steps to preserve the security of Personal Data. Our security efforts are in line with generally accepted standards both for the transmission and the storage of Personal Data. Please be aware that no transmission sent by email or over the Internet is ever 100% secure or error free; emails that you send to and from the Services are particularly at risk to not be fully secure. We recommend that you choose what information to email us with special care and an eye toward security of your Personal Information. We request that you keep such precautions in mind when you share Personal Data with us through the Internet. For transmission of sensitive Personal Data, we use Security Sockets Layer encryption technology to encrypt this data before it travels over the internet. We never store credit card numbers in our database or servers. Also, please be aware that your Personal Information may be stored in locations that are outside our direct control (for examples, on servers co-located with hosting providers). Your Personal Data may also be transferred to a country outside of your country of residence – for example, if you live outside of the United States, your data may be transferred to our servers within the United States. All Personal Data that is transferred internationally is covered under this Privacy Policy and will be protected accordingly.

In the case that any of the Personal Data that you have shared with us is compromised, we will promptly notify you. Fund by Cell does not accept liability for any unintentional disclosure or a disclosure that occurs due to a security breach of our systems or facilities.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns about our security practices at 'info@fundbycell.com.
