Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

How do we use cookies?

When you use our site to go shopping at one of our merchant partners we earn a small commission from the retailer. We use that commission to create the free draw prize fund, our donations to good causes and to fund our own ongoing costs.  To earn this commission we place a cookie on the shopping site that identifies that you have come from Shop2Give. These cookies are strictly necessary to perform the service and raise the commissions which fund our activities.

Affiliate Networks

When you click through to a merchant from our website, your browser redirects via an affiliate network which may drop a cookie on your computer. The cookie stores tracking information so that when you visit a merchant via Shop2Give, any purchases made will result in the merchant reading this information. The merchant will use this information about your purchase to generate the commission payable to us We recommend that you enable cookies in your browsers to make full use of our website in order to ensure that any purchases are recorded.

Whilst the affiliate network cookie isn’t dropped by us, we want to tell you about it before you use our website to make a transaction. By continuing to use our website you consent to third parties such as affiliate networks and merchants featured on our website using cookies for the purpose of tracking and raising donations to our charity partners

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

What data breach procedures we have in place

We hold no transactional data about any purchases that you may make on any of our merchant partners websites. All purchases are made directly with the merchant and as such we have no access to any of your personal data (such as credit / debit card data, personal address etc). The only data that we hold is that provided when you register with us.

What third parties we receive data from

We do not receive any third party data about any purchases that are made by you.
