What Information We Collect
Personal Information We Collect Directly From You
The Personal Information we receive and collect directly from you includes, without limitation, the following:
(1) contact data (such as your name, mailing or billing address, email address, and phone number);
(2) demographic data (such as your gender, your date of birth and your zip code);
(3) payment data (such as a credit card number or payment account information); and
(4) other identifying information that you voluntarily choose to provide to us, including without limitation, unique identifiers such as passwords, and Personal Information in emails or letters that you send to us.
We also collect additional information that may be considered Personal Information when you become a member of our donor community such as Tax Identification Numbers and Employer Identification Numbers, request information or materials from us, or otherwise communicate with us either through the Site, by email, phone or other means. You may still access public areas of our Site if you choose not to provide us with any Personal Information, but if you elect not to share Personal Information it may affect our ability to provide products or services to you.
Information we automatically collect when you use our Site
Some information, which may include Personal Information, is automatically collected when you visit our Site, such as: (i) IP address; (ii) domain server; (iii) type of device(s) used to access the Site; (iv) web browser(s) used to access the Site; (v) referring webpage or other source through which you accessed the Site; (vi) geolocation information; and (vii) other statistics and information associated with the interaction between your browser or device and the Site (collectively “Traffic Data”). Depending on applicable law, some Traffic Data may be Personal Information.
How We Collect Information
We collect information (including Personal Information and Traffic Data) when you use and interact with the Site, and in some cases from third-party sources. Such means of collection include:
(1) When you use the Site to purchase products or services;
(2) When you voluntarily provide information in free-form text boxes through the Site or through responses to interviews, surveys, questionnaires and the like;
(3) Through cookies, web beacons, analytics services and other tracking technology (collectively, “Tracking Tools”), as described below;
(4) When you sign up to receive emails from us regarding events, products, specials or other marketing and promotional materials; and
(5) When you contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or otherwise contact us.
Tracking Tools, Behavioral Advertising, and Opt-Out Options
Tracking Tools: We may use tools outlined below in order to provide our services to advertise to, and to better understand users.
Some cookies are placed by third parties on your device and provide information to us and third parties about your browsing habits (such as your visits to our Site, the pages you have visited, and the links and advertisements you have clicked). These cookies can be used to determine whether certain third-party services are being used, to identify your interests, and to serve advertisements relevant to you. We do not control third-party cookies.
(2) Web Beacons: “Web Beacons” (a.k.a. clear GIFs or pixel tags) are tiny graphic image files embedded in a web page or email that may be used to collect information about the use of our Site, the websites of selected advertisers and the emails, special promotions or newsletters that we send. The information collected by Web Beacons allows us to analyze how many people are using the Site, using selected publishers’ websites or opening emails, and for what purpose, and also allows us to enhance our interest-based advertising (discussed further below).
(3) Web Service Analytics: We may use third-party analytics services in connection with the Site, including, for example, to register mouse clicks, mouse movements, scrolling activity and text typed into the Site. We use the information collected from these services to improve and help make the Site easier to use and as otherwise set forth in the section called “How We Use Your Information.” These analytics services generally do not collect Personal Information unless you voluntarily provide it and generally do not track your browsing habits across web services that do not use their services.
Behavioral Advertising: We may use a type of advertising commonly known as interest-based or online behavioral advertising. This means that some of our partners use Tracking Tools, such as cookies, pixel tags, and web beacons, to collect information about a user’s online activities to display Philanthropy Roundtable ads to the user based on the user’s interests (“Behavioral Advertising”). Such partners may include third-party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks or platforms, traffic measurement service providers, marketing analytics service providers, and other third-party service providers (collectively, “Advertising Service Providers”). Other Tracking Tools used by our partners may collect information when you use the Site, such as IP address, operating system, browser, web page interactions, geographic location and demographic information, such as gender and age range. These Tracking Tools help us learn more about our users’ demographics and internet behaviors.
Options for Opting out of Cookies: Some web browsers allow you to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer
You may opt out of receiving certain cookies and certain trackers by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) opt out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) consumer opt-out page. When you use these opt-out features, an “opt-out” cookie will be placed on your computer. If you delete cookies on your computer, you may need to opt out again.
Even after opting out of Behavioral Advertising, you may still see Philanthropy Roundtable advertisements that are not interest-based (i.e., not targeted toward you). Also, opting out does not mean that Philanthropy Roundtable is no longer using Tracking Tools — we still may collect information about your use of the Site even after you have opted out of Behavioral Advertising and may still serve advertisements to you via the Site based on information collected via the Site.
How Philanthropy Roundtable Responds to Browser “Do Not Track” Signals: Some web browsers (including Safari, Edge, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature that signals to web services that a visitor does not want to have his/her online activity and behavior tracked. If a web service operator elects to respond to a particular DNT signal, the web service operator may refrain from collecting certain Personal Information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option, and there is currently no industry consensus as to what constitutes a DNT signal. For these reasons, many website operators, including Philanthropy Roundtable, do not proactively respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, visit http://allaboutdnt.com.

How We Share Your Information
In certain circumstances, and in order to provide you with our products or to perform the services, we may share certain information that we collect from you, as described in this section:
(1) Advertising: We do not sell email addresses to third parties. We may share your Personal Information with our partners to customize or display our advertising.

(3) Cross-Device Matching: To determine if users have interacted with content across multiple devices and to match such devices, we work with partners who analyze device activity data and/or rely on your information (including demographic, geographic and interest-based data). To supplement this analysis, we also provide de-identified data to these partners. Based on this data, we may then display targeted advertisements across devices that we believe are associated or use this data to further analyze usage of the Site across devices.

Storage and Security of Information
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We endeavor to follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and in storage.

We store and process your information on our servers in the United States. We maintain industry standard backup and archival systems.
Although we make good faith efforts to store Personal Information in a secure operating environment that is not open to the public, we do not and cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information.
