Privacy Policy

How Does RED BASKET Collect Information?

If you choose to create an account with Red Basket, you will be asked to select a username and password and to provide certain personal information such as first name, last name, and email address. This information will not be shared with the general public without your consent. You will also have the opportunity to establish a public profile page. Askers creating a public profile page will be required to provide information related to the proposal ("Ask"). The Asker's public profile will be viewable by the general public. If you choose to make a donation, personal information will be collected from you in order to process that donation. The donor may choose to create a public profile page (display name, location, short biography, projects donated to etc.). If the donor does not want to create a public profile page or otherwise share this information, they may choose to make a donation anonymously. If the donor chooses to be anonymous, only an anonymous avatar and name will be displayed. A Trusted Partner or Advocate may choose to create a public profile page or choose to be anonymous.

Red Basket also collects information volunteered by the visitor when you participate in other activities on the Site, such as purchasing or redeeming a gift card and requesting email newsletters and/or contacting us through one or more of our contact email addresses.

Our web server automatically recognizes and collects the IP address of visitors to our Site. If a visitor has enabled cookies in their browser, we also will send a cookie file that will only store a unique, random session ID that is maintained throughout the session to track the pages visited, allowing us to provide visitors to our Site with certain conveniences, such as delivering unique content. We also use cookies to track the path of users through our Site, and to keep track of where they came from (for example, if they arrive via a search engine). We also collect aggregate tracking information derived mainly from tallying page views throughout our Site.

2. Security

RED BASKET takes reasonable measures to protect personal information. We do not allow unauthorized access via the Internet to the portion of our server that contains personally identifiable user information. All credit card information is encrypted using the SSL protocol and we do not retain any end-user credit card information after the processing of the transaction is complete.

3. How Does RED BASKET Use Information?

RED BASKET uses information to evaluate proposals to post as an Ask on redbasket.org, to provide information regarding approved proposals to the Site's visitors and potential donors, and to facilitate completion of donations via the website.

By creating an account on the Site, you agree to receive emails based on transactional activity, which may include confirmation emails, receipts, acknowledgment messages, or updates on Asks you've funded. You may choose to receive (opt in) email updates and news from Red Basket and/or third parties. If you opt in to be contacted by any third party, your email and contact information will be shared with the third party. You can unsubscribe from the Red Basket email updates and news or instruct Red Basket not to continue to share your contact information with third parties at any time by adjusting your profile options or, for Red Basket emails, by using the link found on the email message to unsubscribe. Once your contact information has been shared with a third party, the use of that information will be governed by their privacy policy, not ours.
