DWC collects three types of information: information that Users intentionally provide to DWC or the Madebydwc.org site, information about Users that third parties provide to DWC or the Platform to augment or verify that information, and information automatically provided by Users as they interact with the a Platform website. Information that can be used to identify, contact, or locate a User is “personally identifiable information.” Automatically provided information that uniquely identifies a device or browser is not personally identifiable information, unless it is linked to a particular User.
User Provided Information
Users make payments as “Payers.” A Payer who is paying with a credit or debit card must provide the Payer’s name, card number, expiration date, CVV code, country, and zip code. A Payer who is paying with PayPal must provide the applicable PayPal payer information.
Payers may voluntarily provide additional information to DWC or the Platform, for example, when seeking customer support or in response to surveys or other inquiries.
Third-Party Provided Information
DWC or the Platform may obtain information about Users from third parties, such as identity verification services, credit reporting services, and social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. The Platform may provide DWC with additional information, such as the User’s transactional history on the Platform.
Automatically Provided Information
DWC or the Platform may automatically record certain information about or related to your use of the Services and the Platform that is made available through your computer. Three such technologies are described below.
Cookies. DWC or the Platform collects certain information from the User’s browser using small data files called "cookies." For example, DWC or the Platform may use session cookies to help recognize a User who visits multiple website pages during the same session, so that the User does not have to enter a password to access each page. Session cookies terminate once the User closes the browser. By default, DWC or the Platform also uses persistent cookies to collect, store, and track information. For example, DWC or the Platform may use persistent cookies to store the User’s login ID (but not the User’s password) to make it easier for the User to login when the User returns to the website. You can remove or block persistent cookies using the settings in your browser, but this may limit your ability to use our Services.
Clear GIFs and Web Beacons. DWC or the Platform may employ a software technology, called clear gifs or web beacons, that helps us better manage content on the DWC or Platform website, and in DWC or Platform emails, by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a User's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages.
