What personal information do we collect?
In order to enable donors to access and use the PayPal Giving Fund Services, in particular to assist in making donations to Participating Charities, PayPal Giving Fund collects certain personal information. This information is collected directly from donors, via third parties and/or from other persons when they use the Services.
Personal information you provide to us: We may collect and store any information you provide to us when you access or use the PayPal Giving Fund Services, including when collecting donations to benefit Participating Charities, or as otherwise required to access or use the PayPal Giving Fund Services. This involves, but is not limited to your name, postal address, email, phone number and your history of donations. In addition, PayPal Giving Fund collects certain information that cannot be used to personally identify any user, such as anonymous, aggregate or statistical data.
Personal information from other sources: PayPal Giving Fund may also receive information about you from other sources, including but not limited to your eBay Seller ID if you make donations using your eBay account. We also collect your PayPal transaction details to be able to assist in making donations to Participating Charities and to maintain records of all individual transactions conducted through the PayPal Giving Fund Services. Those records are associated with each Participating Charity’s individual account profile within the PayPal Giving Fund system. Please note that your eBay and PayPal passwords will never be shared with PayPal Giving Fund. We may also collect the Internet address (IP address) and other identifying information about the computer or device you use to access or use the PayPal Giving Fund Services, in order to help detect possible instances of unauthorized donations or transactions.
The PayPal Giving Fund Services are not directed at individuals under the age of 13 (“Child” or “Children”) and Children are not eligible to use the PayPal Giving Fund Services. Protecting the privacy of Children is very important to us. We do not collect or maintain personal information from users we actually know are Children, and no part of the PayPal Giving Fund Services are designed to attract Children. If we later learn that a user is a Child, we will take steps to remove that user’s personal information from our databases and to prevent the user from utilizing the PayPal Giving Fund Services.
Use and disclosure of collected information
In particular, we use personal information as needed to collect donations to benefit Participating Charities and to communicate with such Participating Charities.
Further, we use such personal information to do the following:

PayPal Giving Fund is committed to handling your personal information with high standards of information security. We maintain technical, physical, and administrative security measures designed to provide reasonable protection for your personal information against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, and alteration. Access to personal information is physically limited within PayPal Giving Fund’s offices, so that only certain PayPal Giving Fund employees are granted access to such information as appropriate to perform specific jobs and tasks (e.g., performing customer service). Some information is also stored in an encrypted form within PayPal Giving Fund’s own facilities. We use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files, and we authorize access to personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfill their job responsibilities.
While we are dedicated to securing our systems and Services, you are responsible for securing and maintaining the privacy of your password(s) and account/profile registration information and verifying that the Personal Data we maintain about you is accurate and current. You may not share your PayPal Giving Fund password with anyone. PayPal Giving Fund representatives will never ask you for your password, so any email or other communication requesting your password should be treated as unauthorized and suspicious and forwarded to spoof@PayPal.com.
PayPal Giving Fund bears no liability for access to, or use or disclosure of, Personal Information, if such access, use or disclosure arises in connection with the theft or disclosure (whether intentional or otherwise) of such password. We are also not responsible for protecting any personal information that we share with a third-party based on an account connection that you have authorized.
