This is necessary to issue you a valid donation receipt as well for legal compliance purposes.

With a Referrer.

If you make a donation through a Referral Code link, then the underlying TogetheRaise user affiliated with the link (and potentially any higher-level, i.e. upstream, referral user connections related to that specific Referral Link) may be notified with information related to your donation.

All shared data with third parties is transferred and stored securely, in accordance with the privacy policies of each party.

Information related to your donation may be displayed on our website (for example on the ImpactBoard) and/or included in communication with other users.

On the donation screen, you will have the option to hide public display of your name with respect to your participation in a Campaign (for example, it will not be displayed on our ImpactBoard or shared with any referrer). If you elect that option however, note that your donation information (name, email, donation amount, and time) will still be shared with Make My Donation and the designated charity as described above.

Required/Permitted by Law and With Law Enforcement.

Your information may be shared with others as required by, or permitted by, law. This may include sharing your personally identifiable information with governmental entities or third parties in response to a valid subpoena, court order, other legal process, when reasonably necessary to exercise legal rights, defend against an actual or potential legal claim, or when similarly appropriate to serve the best interests of TogetheRaise and/or our users.
