How data may be shared:
We may publicly display basic personal information - for example in the form of a "leader board" showing your name and the amount raised. You have the option within your account to change your publically-displayed name or to change it to 'Anonymous'.
We may publicly display anonymous shopping data - for example, a list of recent donations for a charity ("£2 raised at John Lewis").
If you signed up to Give as you Live Online via a referral link, the individual whose referral link you used may be able to see basic information about you within their account. This is so that they can see who they have referred and if that referral qualifies them for a reward (as we may reward individuals for referring new users to us).
Please note that if you change your charity, your information will still be accessible to your previously supported charities. You can withdraw your consent for Give as you Live Online to process your personal data at any time, but you will need to separately ask the charity about your preferences and how to change them. If you need assistance, please get in touch.
Shopping and donation data may also be accessible to charities, however, this will be in an anonymised and aggregated form, and is therefore unaffected by your choice of consent.
We do not share your personal details with our retailers except where necessary to provide our service to you.
When you use Give as you Live Online to visit a retailer, you are taken to their website where their own terms and conditions, privacy policies, and cookie policies will apply. This will include tracking your activity and they may use a third party (such as technology providers, marketing agencies and affiliate networks - including but not limited to Rakuten LinkShare) to do this. The tracking of your activity is required in order for the retailer, and any third parties, to report sales to us that may be eligible for a donation.
You have the option to link your account to a business. This enables a business to see how much their employees are raising as a whole. If you choose to link your account, then you give permission for your basic personal information (name and email address) to be shared with the business you select. In addition, the business may have access to anonymised and aggregated shopping and donation data.
We may use a variety of tools and services - including, but not limited to, email marketing tools, Facebook advertising tools, and Google advertising/analytical tools - which may involve uploading and processing your data in order to provide a service to us.
Outside of these scenarios, we do not pass your personal data onto any third parties without your consent.
