Your privacy is important to us, and we are committed to being transparent about what information we collect from you, why we collect it, and how we use it.
This policy covers users who have registered accounts on our Website (“Members”) and non-registered users who visit our Website or engage with any of our Services (“Visitors”).
Throughout this policy the term “Users” refers to both Members and Visitors, and the terms “we”, “our”, and “us” refer to SIVENTH.
Our Services include the specific features offered on our Website, as well as related activities including customer support, non-profit advisory services, events, information sessions, and other similar activities that support our mission of providing IT, consulting, and other services to people at the bottom of the wealth pyramid and those who serve them.
We only collect information about you that we need in order to provide our Services. We never collect information about you that is not related to our ability to provide our Services.
We collect two types of information from Users: personally-identifiable information, and non-personally- identifiable information.
Personally-identifiable information consists of personal information that can be used by itself to identify you specifically as an individual. For example, you may submit and we may collect your name, email address, telephone number, postal code, or similar information through our Website or Services.
Non-personally identifiable information consists of information that cannot by itself be used to identify you specifically as an individual. Examples of non-personally-identifiable information that we may collect on our Website include, but may not be limited to, your web browser type, pages viewed, length of time spent on a particular page on the Website, and the content with which you engaged on our Website, such as project listings, applications, posts, and messages. This information helps us improve your experience with our Website and Services.
When you create an account with SIVENTH, you may provide personal information about yourself, such as your name, email address, phone number, postal code, job title, profile image, and work experience.
If you register as a volunteer, you may also provide information about yourself such as cause areas you are passionate about, your professional skills, your work experience, and any biographical information that you wish to share. We may use this additional information to personalize and enhance your user experience on our Website and with any of our Services, and to help match you with the best possible volunteer opportunity.
If you register as a staff member of an organization, you may also provide information about your organization and your role at the organization, such as your organization’s cause area, number of staff members, operating budget, and other similar information. We may use this additional information to personalize and enhance your user experience on our Website and with any of our Services, and to help match your organization with the best possible volunteer for your needs. In addition, if you are registering as an organization that wishes to use our CSR AS A Service (CSRAAS), you may be required to provide financial information in order to pay for your organization’s membership.
Certain personal information of Members, such as last name and contact details, is only made available to other Members, and only when required to provide our Services. For example, in order to facilitate a match between a volunteer and an organization for the purpose of completing a volunteer project or consultation, we may provide each Member with the contact information of the other Member.
Limited personal information of Members may be available to Visitors to our Website. For example, information such as your first name, organization or employer name, professional skills, work experience, and profile image may be displayed publicly on our Website so that organizations and volunteers can understand how the Website and Services work.
Volunteer opportunities posted by organizations on our Website may also be displayed on other Authorized Third Party websites such as LinkedIn or, under certain circumstances, vi other affiliated organizations that have partnered with us to provide skilled volunteer opportunities. We enable these integrations in order to provide our Services, and in support of our mission of providing individuals with the opportunity to use their skills and talents for the greater good, and to assist people at the bottom of the wealth pyramid and those who serve them.
We only ask for, collect, and share the personal information that we need in order to provide our Services, and we take all reasonable actions to keep your personal information secure.
We do not share your personally-identifiable information with third-party advertisers, and we do not display third-party advertisements to you anywhere on our Website or through any of our Services.
You can change or remove your personal information at any time by logging into your account and following the prompts to modify your profile, or by contacting us at email@example.com. You can also deactivate your account at any time by contacting us.
Cookies can be “Persistent” or “Session” Cookies. Persistent Cookies remain on your personal computer or mobile device when you go offline, while Session Cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser.
We use both Session and Persistent Cookies for the Purposes set out below:
SIVENTH may use Personal Data for the following purposes:
When associating your SIVENTH account with other Authorized Third Parties you have an account with, we will collect information that you make available from those accounts. We collect this information to improve our Services and your user experience on the Website. For example, you can choose to connect your LinkedIn account so that you can import your work experience and profile picture to your SIVENTH profile, instead of entering it manually.
We will not share your personally-identifiable information with other third parties, except in specific circumstances where we contract with an Authorized Third-Party provider (described in this section), and unless required as described under the Required Disclosures section below. In the case of posting a volunteer opportunity and accepting a volunteering match, we regard this as affirmative consent and will disclose your personally-identifiable information, which includes your full name and contact information, with the matched party.
At times we may outsource one or more aspects of our Website or Services to a supplier or service provider who performs services according to our requirements, and these Authorized Third Parties may have access to our personally-identifiable information. For example, in order to facilitate phone calls between Members, we may contract with a third-party communications provider, and that provider would require the Member’s telephone number in order to perform the required service.
Although we try our best to select only reputable companies who share our commitment to privacy and will restrict how they use or disclose the personally-identifiable information to which they have access, we are in no way responsible for Authorized Third Parties or their activities. When you use our Website or any of our Services you agree to allow us to share your information, which may include your personally-identifiable information, with Authorized Third Party suppliers and service providers when it is necessary in order for us to provide our Services to you.
Due to factors beyond our control, we cannot fully ensure that your information will not be disclosed to Unauthorized Third Parties. For example, Unauthorized Third Parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access your information. Certain information that you provide to us through the registration process (such as name, location, and profile image) could be accessible and made public through syndication programs, search engines, crawlers, and other similar programs.
We make every reasonable effort to protect your privacy, but we may need to disclose your information when required by law, or if we believe that such an action is necessary to:
You authorize us to disclose any information about you to law enforcement or government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe is necessary or appropriate, in connection with any investigation of illegal activity or that may expose us to liability.
You can control the information you provide to us in various ways. You can change your personal profile information at any time by logging in to your account and editing your profile. You can, for example, modify your name, email address, profile image, and other personal information. You can also contact us for assistance with changing or removing any of your information, or to request a copy of your information.
If you are registered as a volunteer, you may also control when your profile information is displayed to other Members in the context of recommending you for a specific volunteer opportunity by changing your status, which you can do by logging in to your account and modifying your profile settings.
