What Types Of Information Do We Collect?
We collect information that may personally identify you (such as your name, address, email address, or other data which can be reasonably linked to such information) only if you choose to share such information with us. For example, when you create an account on Kangu, you may choose to use a third-party single sign on registration tool such as Facebook, or provide a username, email address, and a means to authenticate your account (for example, a password). You can also choose to provide additional information, such as your first, middle and/or last name, a picture of yourself or your physical address, through the creation of a public profile page or by updating your account information. If you contact Kangu Customer Service, we will collect the contact information you provide in order to address your question or comment.
How Do We Use The Information We Collect?
A basic public profile page will automatically be created for you when you register for an account at Kangu, which shows your Kangu profile url, your username and the date on which you joined. If you have chosen to provide additional information, such as your first, middle and/or last name, a picture of yourself or your city/state/country of residence, Kangu will display this information on your public profile. You may remove it at any time. When you donate to a Mama, your public profile will also show the Mamas you have donated to. Your username and, if you provided one, photo, will also appear on that Mama’s Kangu page. Kangu may also display the general regions where our donors are located.
By establishing an account on Kangu, you agree to receive emails or other written communication, such as physical mail, based on your account status or activity, including confirmations of donations you have made and changes to your account information.
By default, you will receive update emails on your donations that are sent by our field partners through the Website. Our field partners will send such emails through a webform and will not have access to your email address.
By default, you may receive periodic newsletter emails from Kangu. The frequency of these newsletters may vary. You can choose to unsubscribe to these newsletters at any time.
From time to time, we might establish a business relationship with other persons or entities whom we believe trustworthy ("Service Providers"). For example, payment processing for the addition of funds into a Kangu account is provided by PayPal. We provide our Service Providers with the information needed for them to perform these services. Each Service Provider must agree to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of your information in order to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure.
