BY SUBMITTING YOUR INFORMATION THROUGH THIS SITE, YOU CONSENT TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND TO TRAIL SOFTWARE'S COLLECTION, USE, AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PII ACCORDING TO THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY. THIS SITE IS A GENERAL AUDIENCE SITE AND DOES NOT KNOWINGLY COLLECT PII FROM CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE. IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO USE THIS SITE.

This Privacy Policy is applicable only to this Site and does not apply to any third party websites or to other companies or persons. This Site may contain links to, and media and other content from, other sites. Because of the dynamic media capabilities of this Site, it may not be clear to you which links are embedded in this Site and which are embedded in third-party media or content. Trail Software cannot and does not guarantee the privacy policies and practices of any third party. Trail Software does not control, operate, or endorse any information, products, or services of any third-party websites that may be reached through links from this Site. The use of any PII provided by you to such third party will be governed by that party's privacy policy. If you are unsure whether a website is controlled, affiliated, or managed by Trail Software, you should review the privacy policy at each linked website to determine how that site treats your PII.

TRAIL SOFTWARE MAY CHANGE THIS PRIVACY POLICY FROM TIME TO TIME. THE REVISED POLICY WILL BE POSTED ON THIS SITE. Your continued use of this Site after Trail Software posts a revised Privacy Policy signifies your acceptance of the revised Privacy Policy and your consent to Trail Software's collection, use, and disclosure of your PII according to the terms of the updated Privacy Policy. It is therefore important that you review this Privacy Policy regularly to ensure you are updated as to any changes. This Privacy Policy was last revised on January 13, 2012.

Information we collect and how we may use it

If you are a customer of Trail Software, we collect certain information about you in order to provide you with our donor management system and/or online payment service (the "Service"). When you register for the Service we will request some PII such as your name and email address, and information about your organization such as the name of your organization, Tax ID, mailing address, and tax designation. Furthermore, if you are opening a merchant account, Trail Software may also obtain information about you from third party sources, including, without limitation, consumer reporting agencies. This information is used to contact you about the services on our Site for which you have expressed an interest. As part of the Service, we may also collect donor information on behalf of your organization. Except as may be expressly set forth herein, we will not use any donor information collected on your behalf for any purpose other than to provide the Service. Any tax or financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the Service. If you purchase the Service by credit card, this information will be transmitted to our credit card merchant account provider, and may be forwarded to your credit card provider. We do not store credit card information.

If you are a donor for a Trail Software customer, we collect certain information from you in order to process your donation ("Donor Information"). Trail Software will use Donor Information during the course of providing the Service to such Trail Software customer. Trail Software may also use Donor Information at an aggregate level for internal business analyses and fraud prevention. During the course of providing the Service to Trail Software customers, Trail Software may disclose Donor Information to banks, processors, card associations, and other financial institutions that are involved in the course of processing or screening the transaction applicable to the Donor Information.

We may use PII for internal purposes, such as registering you as a user on this Site, marketing and promotion, to provide you with other products and services, or to contact you regarding administrative notices, offerings, or communications relevant to you on this Site. In addition, we may use PII to provide products or services that you have requested as well as for auditing, research, and analysis to improve Trail Software's products and services.

Trail Software and any third parties listed in this Privacy Policy with whom Trail Software may share your PII, may use your PII to send you promotional messages. If you would no longer like to receive such messages, announcements, or mailings, you may “opt-out” and unsubscribe by clicking on the “unsubscribe link” found at the bottom of Trail Software or such third party marketing emails or by contacting Trail Software at the following postal or e-mail address:

Kindful
2975 Sidco Drive
Nashville, TN 37204
888.854.0933
support@kindful.com

Please note that PII does not include "aggregate" information, which is data we collect about a group or category of users, from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed. This Privacy Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection, use, or our ability to sell such aggregate information.

When we disclose your information

Trail Software takes your privacy very seriously. The information we collect is used to provide the Service, and, in general, is not shared with or sold to other organizations for commercial purposes. However, there are times when it may be advantageous for Trail Software to make certain PII about you available to companies that Trail Software has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for Trail Software to provide products and services to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, deliver products or services to you, provide customer service, manage and enhance user data, assess your interest in our products and services, or conduct user research or satisfaction surveys. We may also disclose your PII, if you have authorized us to act on your behalf to initiate the creation of a merchant account for the purpose of accepting donations by credit card.

At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your PII. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.

In addition, Trail Software may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy. In such an event, PII may be one of the assets transferred.

How we protect your personal information

Trail Software takes precautions to safeguard your PII against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no method of data transmission that can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse.

You can help us by also taking precautions to protect your personal data when you are on the internet. Do not share your registration information with anyone, and make sure you use a secure web browser.

Accessing your information

This Site may contain web pages through which you can correct or update some of the PII you have provided to us. Trail Software will make a good faith effort to make requested changes and correct your data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if we are not required to retain it by law or for legitimate purposes.

Cookies and other technologies

To make this Site more useful to you, we automatically gather general statistical information about this Site and its visitors, such as IP addresses (and information tied to IP addresses, such as screen size, color depth, language, java enabling, flash version, page title, host name, referring source, and page path), browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, services purchased, etc. In doing so, we do not reference you by name, email, mailing address, or any similar PII. We use this data in the aggregate to learn about our visitors and to improve our ability to cater to their needs. We may use third party vendors to gather general statistical information about this Site and its visitors as well as to perform certain services on behalf of this Site, such as hosting this Site, designing or operating this Site's features, or performing other administrative services. We may provide these companies with access to your PII to carry out the services they are performing for you or for Trail Software.

As part of our service, we also use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A “cookie” is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Generally, we use cookies to remind us who you are, to give you easier access to repeatedly used account information, to gather statistical information about usage, to research visiting patterns, and to help target advertisements based on user interests. In some instances, our partners and advertisers appearing at this Site may use their own cookies. Your web browser settings, which you may change at any time, determine if and how a cookie will be accepted. By changing those settings, you can accept all cookies, be notified when a cookie is set, or simply reject all cookies. If you decide to reject all cookies, please be aware that you may be required to re-enter your information more often and certain features of this Site may be unavailable to you.

Your California Privacy Rights

Residents of the State of California, under a provision of the California Civil Code, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed PII during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes. Alternatively, the law provides that if the company has a privacy policy that gives either an Opt-out or Opt-in choice for use of your PII by third parties (such as advertisers) for marketing purposes, the company may instead provide you with information on how to exercise your disclosure choice options.

Trail Software qualifies for the alternative option; it has a comprehensive privacy policy and provides you with details on how you may either Opt-out or Opt-in to the use of your PII by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received your PII for marketing purposes during the preceding year.

If you are a California resident and request information about how to exercise your third party disclosure choices you must send a request to support@kindful.com.
