We retain two types of information:
This is data that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you and may include your first and last name, email address, country of residence, date of birth and gender. Such information is collected from you only if you voluntarily submit it to us. Of this information, only your first and last name, gender and country of residence are publicly available to all members of the ammado community. Other information including, but not limited to, personal preferences, interests, occupation and education may also be provided and/or posted on the website by you at your discretion. You can control access to your pages and with whom you share information by using our privacy settings.
To invite friends to connect with you on ammado, we will ask you for their email addresses. The email addresses of people that you invite will be used only to send a one-time email inviting them to visit the website. ammado stores this information only to send this one-time email, and to register new users if your invitations are accepted. Your friends may request that we delete this information from our database by emailing email@example.com
ammado may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by us. You may opt out of such email notifications. Even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications, ammado reserves the right to notify you about your account.
If you make a donation through ammado, we require your email address to send you confirmation of the status of the payment. Please note that we display your email address - as well as your name and country - to the nonprofit organization that benefits from your donation. If you do not wish these details to be visible to a nonprofit organization, please select the "Anonymous" option when making your donation. Similarly, if you donate to a fundraiser, we display your name and country (but not your email address) to the moderator of the fundraiser that benefits from your donation. If you do not wish these details to be visible to a moderator of a fundraiser, please select the "Anonymous" option when making your donation.
ammado provides a donations facility to numerous companies. Under certain conditions, when you make a donation through a Giving Widget owned by a company, that company may be able to view your donation details as well as your name and email address. The donation information collected by companies may "only" be used to match donations made through the ammado-provided donations facilities and/or for statistical purposes e.g. to track company-sponsored employee giving programs. If you do not wish your details to be visible to a company under the above conditions, please select the "Anonymous" option when making your donation.
As part of the Ammado Services, ammado's nonprofit members are required to provide certain information to ammado. Of this information, only the nonprofit name, country and public e-mail must be displayed on this website. Other information such as the nonprofit member's alias, "strapline" (i.e. the nonprofit member's mission statement or nonprofit objectives), website, address and nonprofit number can be provided at the discretion of the nonprofit member, but if such information is provided, it must be displayed on the website.
