Information We Collect
Information You Provide to Us
We obtain information that you provide to us directly, for example, data you submit when you sign up or donate a gift card. The information we collect may include personal information such as your name, email address, phone number, and date of birth.
Information That is Collected Automatically When You Use the Services
In addition to information you submit to us, we may collect certain information using automated means such as cookies, web beacons, and web server logs. The types of information we collect automatically may include IP addresses, device identifiers, browser characteristics, operating system details, language preferences, referring URLs, length of visits, and pages viewed.
In addition, when you use our mobile application we may collect certain information that your mobile device captures during normal usage, such as motion-generated or orientation-generated mobile sensor data that your mobile device uses for various features. For example, when you turn your phone and the screen reorients itself based on the way you’re holding it, or when you shake your phone to trigger a particular action.
We may combine certain automatically-collected information with other information we obtain about you.
We also may use third-party web analytics services, such as Google Analytics. These service providers help us understand our audience and analyze how visitors use the Services. To learn more about how Google may use information collected through the Services, click here. To learn more about opting out of data collection through Google Analytics, click here.
Your web browser may have settings that allow you to transmit a “Do Not Track” signal when you visit various websites or use online services. Like many websites and online services, our Services are not designed to respond to “Do Not Track” signals received from browsers. To learn more about “Do Not Track” signals, you may wish to visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com/.
When you use our mobile applications, we may collect, use, and share precise location data about you to provide and improve our location-based products and services. Where available, location-based services may use technologies such as GPS, Bluetooth, crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspots, and cell tower locations to determine a mobile device’s approximate location. You may use your device settings to restrict this type of location tracking generally, and/or to prevent a particular app from obtaining location data about your device in connection with the use of that app.

We may use the information we collect about you for various purposes, including to:
- Personalize and improve your online experience;
- Respond to emails or other requests, inquiries, comments, or questions;
- Provide customer support;
- Present you with giving opportunities tailored to your interests and past activities or usage of the Services;

We also may use the information we obtain about you in other ways for which we provide notice at the time of collection.
In addition, we use information collected online through cookies, web beacons, and other automated means for purposes such as recognizing your browsing device when you visit the Services, tracking your activity as you navigate the Services, or analyzing your use of the Services. This information may be used to track your activity over time on various websites and services, as well as across different devices you may use to access the Internet and our Services.
How We May Share Information
We may permit our agents, vendors, consultants, and other service providers to access information we collect about you through the Services to carry out work on our behalf. We also may use outside companies to help us send emails or text messages and manage email or text message campaigns, manage our careers page, or host or operate the Services. These third party service providers use the personal information to which they have access to carry out the purposes for which we shared the information.
We also may share your information: (1) if we are required to do so by law, regulation, or legal process (such as in response to a court order or subpoena or similar government request for information); (2) to fulfill requests by government agencies, including law enforcement authorities; (3) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity; (4) to enforce our policies, or to protect legal rights, property, or safety; (5) with third parties, to investigate or address possible criminal or fraudulent activity; or (6) in the event of a joint venture, partnership, merger, or other collaboration with another organization.
We reserve the right to transfer any information we obtain through the Services in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (e.g., further to a merger, reorganization, liquidation, or any other business transaction, including negotiations of such transactions).
We maintain appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to help protect personal information collected or received through the Services. Although we use reasonable efforts to safeguard information, transmission via the Internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of your information collected through the Services.
Links to Other Websites
The Services may include links to other websites for your convenience and information. Websites that are operated by entities not affiliated with Tinua may have their own privacy policies or notices, which we strongly suggest you review. Tinua is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of any linked websites that we do not control.
The Services may include features that are designed to permit interactions that you initiate between the Services and third party websites or services, including third party social networks (“Social Features”). Examples of Social Features include enabling you to “like” or “share” our content on other websites or services; make comments on certain pages using a plugin; or to transmit content to the Services from your account on a third party website or service.
Tinua may work with third-party payment systems, such as PayPal, to complete gift card donations and credit card transactions. Tinua and a third-party system may request the use of your Camera to allow you to upload a gift card or credit card through scanning features.
The Services are not intended for, nor targeted to, children under 13, and we do not knowingly or intentionally collect information from children under 13. If we learn that we have received information directly from a child who is under the age of 13, we will delete the information in accordance with applicable law.
