Welcome to the websites, mobile applications, or widgets (as the case may be) operated by MyGreen.FUND (Private) Limited. (including its subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, and service providers, collectively, “MyGreen.FUND”, “we”, “us”, or “our”). MyGreen.FUND provides (a) a platform through its website at www.mygreen.fund and attendant mobile applications (collectively, with any new features and applications) and related services (collectively the “MyGreen.FUND Services”).

This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) describes and governs how we collect, use, share and protect information collected in the context of our Services. Before you use or submit any information through or in connection with the Services, please review this Policy carefully. By using any part of the Services, you acknowledge the collection, use, and disclosure of your information as outlined in this Policy. To the extent allowed by law, the English version of this Policy is binding and other translations are for convenience only.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

As further described below, when you use or otherwise access the Services, we collect information in multiple ways, including when you provide information directly to us, and when we passively collect information from your browser or device (e.g., by logging how you interact with our Services).

A.    Information That You Provide Directly to Us:

I.                 Registration information:

When you register for our Services or open an account, we collect your email address and login details, your country, your phone number (for purposes of multi-factor authentication and to provide you with important messages), and any information you choose to provide us (such as a profile picture).

II.               Creation of a green fundraiser:

When you create a green fundraiser, we collect the information you choose to provide us concerning your green fundraiser and we display it through our platform. For example, you can provide a green fundraiser title, choose a green fundraiser category, upload images and describe your green fundraiser goal(s). By providing information in a green fundraiser, you consent to our collection, storage, and use of your data. If you upload personal data related to third parties, you acknowledge and agree that you have the authority of the relevant third parties for us to access and use the relevant data and that you have notified the third parties and informed them of how their information is collected and used by MyGreen.FUND to provide the Services. We reserve the right to identify you as the person who has made the referral in any messages that are sent to them.

Our payment processors also collect and maintain information related to your withdrawal of funds from any green fundraiser.

III.             Setting up withdrawals:

When you are the beneficiary (or the recipient of funds from a green fundraiser), we collect your contact details (such as name and email address), country, your phone number (for purposes of multi-factor authentication and to send you important messages) and any information you choose to provide us.   

Our payment processors collect your bank details as well as other information necessary to set up the withdrawals.

IV.             Donation information:

When you donate to a green fundraiser, we collect your contact details (such as name and email address), country, and any information you choose to provide us (such as a description of why you have donated). 

Our payment processors collect your credit card details and other information necessary to process the donation such as your home address.

V.              Public Communications:

You can post comments, leave reviews, and feedback, send thank-you notes, or otherwise communicate with other users. Any content, including such comments, feedback, and notes that you choose to post through are available to the public by default. 


Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information for both us and other users to use and share. Take care not to share personal data unless you intend for that data to become public. Please also be considerate and respectful of others while using the community to share your opinions. We reserve the right but do not have the obligation, to review and monitor such posting or any other content on our Services, and to remove postings or content that may be viewed as inappropriate or offensive to others.

VI.             Communications to MyGreen.FUND:

You may contact us via a contact form, email, chat services, or by other means (for example, with questions about our Services, for customer support, or to let us know your ideas for new products or modifications to existing products). You may also choose to respond to surveys that we send out or queries about your green fundraisers. When you do so, we collect the information you choose to provide us, such as your contact details, any images you choose to upload, and the contents and nature of your message.

We would ask that you take care not to send financial information or other sensitive personal data to us through our chat services or other means unless we ask you specifically for that data as part of providing our Service to you.  When you provide such information to us directly, you consent to the processing of this data by MyGreen.FUND and/or our service providers. We collect the information listed in this section for the purposes described below in the sections “Our Use of Information Collected” and “Our Disclosure of Information Collected Through the Services”. While you are under no obligation to provide us with such information, should you choose to withhold such information, we may not be able to provide you with some or all of the Services.

VII.           Sensitive information:

You can also provide us with information about yourself or third parties that is considered sensitive, such as political opinions, health information, and environmental or religious beliefs. If you post this information in a green fundraiser, you choose to provide such information to be published publicly concerning your green fundraiser, donation, or otherwise.
When you provide such information to us directly, you consent to the processing of this data by MyGreen.FUND and/or its service providers. We collect the information listed in this section for the purposes described below in the sections “Our Use of Information Collected” and “Our Disclosure of Information Collected Through the Services”. 

VIII.         Biometric information:

We use third-party services for identity verification and fraud prevention purposes. These biometric information services, acting as our processors, may collect a copy of your government-issued ID (i.e., your driver’s licence, or passport) and a scan of the picture on your government-issued ID for identification purposes (“biometric information”) and employ facial recognition technology to verify your identity. These biometric information services provide us with a confirmation as to whether your identity has been validated or not. Except as stated here, MyGreen.FUND does not retain any biometric information, and instead, that information is maintained by the processors performing the services.

By sharing your information with these biometric information services, you consent to the collection, processing, sharing, and storage of your biometric information for identity verification and fraud prevention purposes. 

Your biometric information will be used for identity verification and fraud prevention purposes per this Policy. If you do not consent to the collection and use of your biometric information, we will use a copy of your government-issued ID and other information to verify your identity.

Your biometric information will be retained by our processors for as long as necessary for identity verification and fraud prevention and in accordance with applicable law.  Please contact us as detailed in the “Contacting MyGreen.FUND” section to the extent you have any questions regarding your biometric information.

IX.             Data from Other Services:

MyGreen.FUND may use other third-party services to improve the quality of our own customer database so that we might improve our Services to you.  If you would like to opt-out of these efforts, please contact us at the email address or mailing address set forth under “Contacting MyGreen.FUND”.
