You control your personal information on the Inspired platform. We will never disclose your email address, transaction history, or other information to any Merchant or any other third party for their marketing purposes without you first authorizing that Merchant or third party to access such information. This allows you to use the Inspired Service and Inspired platform without receiving a whole lot of direct marketing you don't want.
All companies that you do business with choose whether and how they want share your personal information. Federal law gives you the right to limit some, but not all, of that sharing. Federal law also requires companies to tell you how they collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.
Personal Information: Inspired collects some of your identifying information in connection with the Service, depending on how you use the Service. When you create an Inspired User Account (whether through an Inspired App or Inspired website), pay with the Inspired Card, engage in a Program, submit content to Inspired, complete a survey, send us feedback, request information about the Service, apply for a job, or sign up for special offers from third parties, Inspired may collect information from you, which could include the following (collectively, "Personal Information"):
first and last name
date of birth
merchant transaction data (including the amount, date, and location of the transaction, and the amount of the donation created), and date and authentication codes or related information.
Financial information: In order to use the Service and the Inspired platform in connection with payments to merchants, you will need to link a payment instrument, such as a debit or credit card account number, to your Inspired User Account ("Financial Information"). Inspired will only collect Financial Information from Users using a secure, transparent pass through to our third-party data vault and payment gateway provider, and Inspired will never store your Financial Information itself. Inspired and its providers maintain compliance with all laws and rules protecting the privacy of your financial information, including the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).
Web Tracking Information: Inspired and its third-party service providers may use web tracking technologies, such as cookies, web beacons, pixel tags and clear GIFs, to collect data related to usage of the Service, the Programs, and web and email marketing conducted by or on behalf of Inspired. Such data may include:
In order to collect Web Tracking Information and to make your use of the Service more efficient, we may store cookies on your computer. Inspired and third party contractors engaged to provide services on behalf of Inspired ("Contractors") may also use web tracking technologies that are placed in web pages on the Service or in email communications to collect information about actions that users take when they interact with the Service or such email communications. Web Tracking Information is not correlated by Inspired to individual users. Some Web Tracking Information may include data, such as IP address data, that is unique to you. You may be able to modify your browser settings to alter which web tracking technologies are permitted when you use the Service, but this may affect the performance of the Service.
All companies need to share customers' personal information to run their everyday business. In this section, we explain the reasons that companies can share their customers' personal information; the reasons Inspired chooses to share information; and whether you can limit this sharing.
Personal information: Inspired will use and store your Personal Information to deliver the Inspired Service to you (including purchases, donation tracking, and system notifications); to notify you of giving opportunities; to improve our products and services; to investigate (and remedy) fraudulent or allegedly fraudulent activity; and to perform aggregated data analysis.
Additionally, any Personal Information that we collect via Facebook will be used for registration and open graph posts.
Inspired does not sell or rent its mailing list, and we will not disclose your email address to any third party for marketing purposes, unless you specifically authorize a third party (such as an Inspired Merchant) to access your information. Inspired will disclose your Personal Information to third parties only in the following limited circumstances:
Financial information: Inspired will only ever use your Financial Information for the purpose of submitting an authorized charge to your payment instrument. Financial Information is never provided to Inspired in unencrypted form, or stored by Inspired. Your Financial Information is never disclosed to third parties, including Inspired Merchants, other than Inspired's data vault and payment gateway provider. Aggregate Information: Inspired may also use Personal Information to create aggregated data for analytical purposes. This statistical information does not contain any individual identifying information or contact information and is used to understand our customer base as a whole and to better serve our market. Inspired reserves the right to share such aggregated, non-identifiable data with 3rd parties.
Web tracking information: Inspired uses Web Tracking Information to administer the Service and to understand how well our Service is working, and to develop aggregate, statistical information on usage of the Services. Inspired may disclose Web Tracking Information, without individual identifying information, to third party advertisers and advertising agencies, Merchants, and Contractors, in order for Inspired and such third parties to analyze the performance of the Services and the behavior of users, to operate and improve the Service.
Email communications: If you create an Inspired User Account and provide your email address, we will send you administrative and promotional emails concerning the Inspired Service and Inspired platform, including new features, promotions, Programs, and rewards. If you wish to opt out of promotional emails, you may do so by following the "unsubscribe" instructions in the email, by contacting Inspired Support, or by editing your Inspired User Account settings as described below. All Inspired Users receive administrative emails. If you wish to opt out of administrative emails, you must delete your account entirely and cease use of the Service.
Social Media Sharing: The Inspired App offers you the option to share your impact on social media sites in a way that other users, including the general public, can see them. You may access our privacy controls and/or the privacy controls for your social media network(s) to restrict the sharing of impact details to certain groups of people, or to no one at all. When you broadcast your activity to third-party services, Inspired no longer controls that information, and it becomes subject to the terms and conditions and privacy policies of the services it’s shared with. Inspired does NOT send your personal information or activity to third-party social networks unless you have specifically allowed us to.
If you would like your Personal Information permanently removed from our database, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-205-9347. We will promptly disable your Inspired User Account and you will no longer receive email from Inspired. Your removal from the mailing list or database will not remove records of past transactions or delete information stored in our data backups and archives, as required by law. Data on past transactions and data stored in backups and archives will be deleted in the normal course of Inspired's business. You may elect to opt-out at any time after registering for the Inspired service.
Inspired encourages you to view your transaction history, and review and amend your email address or contact details, in the Inspired platform at any time. Please contact us by sending an email to: email@example.com or by visiting your settings within your User Account, accessible within the Inspired mobile application.
Security: We use reasonable security precautions to protect the security and integrity of your Personal Information in accordance with this Policy and all applicable laws. However, no Internet transmission is completely secure, and we cannot guarantee that security breaches will not occur. Without limitation of the foregoing, we are not responsible for the actions of hackers and other unauthorized third parties.

If Inspired learns that personally identifiable information of persons less than 13 years of age has been collected without verifiable parental consent, then Inspired will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.
