We may combine this information with other personal information we collect from you.

Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

The Way We Use Information

We use the information you provide about yourself when making a donation only to complete that donation. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that donation.

We use the information you provide about someone else when making a donation only to acknowledge the donation is in their honor or memory. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that donation.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

We use the information we collect about you from the website in various ways designed to improve the services that PFund Foundation offers to you. For example, we might use your information to:

The Way We Use Cookies

As mentioned above, we might use cookies and other tracking mechanisms to track information about your use of our website or services. We may combine this information with other personal information we collect from you.

Cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we may transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. We might use cookies to uniquely identify you, in order to help us to process your transactions and requests, to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity, and to display advertising both on our website and on third-party websites. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. If you disable cookies some features of our website may not function.

Flash LSOs. We might use Flash LSOs, to store your website preferences and to personalize your visit. LSOs vary from browser cookies in the type, amount and browser-control of data. Please visit the Adobe Flash Player Help Page, choose “Global Storage Settings Panel” for information and instructions to manage settings.

Clear GIFs. Clear GIFs (a/k/a pixel tags, web beacons or web bugs) are small graphics similar in function to cookies.

We might use clear GIFs to track the activities of website visitors or users, manage content, and compile usage statistics.

YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE ZOOMGRANTS SITE WILL BE DEEMED TO INDICATE YOUR ASSENT TO SUCH TERMS.

In general, when you visit ZoomGrants.com and access information you remain anonymous. We do not require you to register or provide personal information to us to view our site.

There are occasions when we will ask for additional information in order to provide you with services that may be valuable to you. For example, personally identifiable information will be collected in order for you to become a client of ZoomGrants. This information is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest and to connect users that have requested contact with other users by the nature of the use of this site.

In consideration of your use of the Service, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself and/or your company as prompted by the Service’s registration form (such information being the “Registration Data”) and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or ZoomGrants has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, ZoomGrants has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof).

ZoomGrants is the sole owner of the information collected on this site, and will, according to contractual obligations inherent in the services being rendered, make that information available to relevant clients of ZoomGrants.

ZoomGrants will make your information, including personally identifiable information, available to other appropriate ZoomGrants users that you have voluntarily entered your information to be provided to, implying your consent to share the information. Additionally, ZoomGrants will make your information available when we respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process; or we believe that your actions violate applicable laws, ZoomGrants Terms of Use or any usage guidelines for specific products or services, or threaten the rights, property, or safety of ZoomGrants, our users, or others.

Customers with appropriate access to information who are required by law to make that information available will be responsible for all necessary redactions of that information.

With respect to information you submit or make available for inclusion on the site, you grant ZoomGrants the following worldwide, royalty free and non-exclusive license(s), as applicable: the license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publicly perform and publicly display such information on the site solely for the purposes of providing and promoting the specific and potential ZoomGrants client(s) to which such information was submitted or made available.

ZoomGrants encourages users to participate in the Internet experience, to voice their views, and to benefit from interactive experiences. Nonetheless, it is imperative that you are very aware that there are rules and standards that must be adhered to as a ZoomGrants user.

Users are solely responsible for their conduct while using any part of ZoomGrants, including, but not limited to, the content of any interactions you generate, transmit, or maintain via ZoomGrants.com. ZoomGrants takes no responsibility for any such online distribution or publication by you or by any other party.

ZoomGrants cannot and will not review every message or other content you or any other party may generate or post, and ZoomGrants is not responsible for the content thereof.

By using any of the services of ZoomGrants, you agree not to do any of the following: 1. Upload to, distribute or otherwise publish through the ZoomGrants site any message, data, information, text or other material (“Content”) that is unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, harassing, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory, or otherwise objectionable. 2. Upload or transmit any Content that would constitute or encourage a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party, or would otherwise create liability or violate any local, state, federal or international law. 3.
