Welcome to Fenly, a donation services website located at fenly.org. Fenly is owned by The Maryland Food Bank, Inc., a Maryland corporation (referred to herein as us, we, our or Fenly). Subscribers to the services provided by Fenly can create additional online locations (each such location, an Organizer Site) where a subscriber’s registered users (collectively, subscribers and their registered users, Organizers) can organize, process, and manage fundraiser and virtual food drive campaigns (Campaigns). Collectively, the website at fenly.org, all Organizer Sites, and all Campaigns constitute the Platform, and collectively, all visitors to the Platform, donors to Campaigns, Organizers, and individuals acting on behalf of Organizers are referred to herein as you or user.
We collect information, including Personal Information, from you when you voluntarily provide such information. For example, when you register with the Platform, we may collect your name, email address, and location. When you create an Organizer Site we may collect information about your affiliation with a charitable cause or place of employment. When you make a contribution to a campaign, we may collect your name, picture, and contribution amount.
We ask that you not send or otherwise disclose sensitive information to us about your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, criminal background, or trade union membership, unless we specifically request such sensitive information. In some circumstances we may request such sensitive information, but will only do so with your express consent and in accordance with the law. If you provide sensitive information to us without our request, then we may delete any such sensitive information.
The Platform is not intended for individuals under the age of 16, and Fenly does not knowingly collect information from such individuals. We may delete any information identified as being provided by individuals under the age of 16.
The servers we use to host the Platform collect certain log information about your use of the Platform. This log information consists of the typical information collected when a server hosts a website over the Internet, such as the internet protocol (IP) address assigned to your device, the date and time the Platform was requested, and the previous webpage you visited. Depending on the configuration of your connection to the Internet, your IP address may provide an indication of your location, which is generally no more precise than the city where your device is located.
The internet browser you use to access the Platform collects and provides us certain information about your device. Depending on your browser, this information can include the type of device you use, your operating system type and version, and browser type and version. Services running on your device may provide us information about you. For example, geolocation services running on your device may provide address-level location data to us.
We may directly set Cookies to your device or a third party may set cookies to your device through the Platform. For example, we may contract with third party service providers, to process your data and analyze usage patterns on the Platform. We currently work with the following third party service providers:
Most internet browsers, mobile applications, and operating systems allow you to configure privacy settings to limit or disable cookies, web beacons, and related technologies. For example, you can typically adjust settings to cause a browser to notify you when a cookie has been issued or to block cookies altogether. You can also generally disable services running on your device, such as geolocation services. Certain internet browsers may enable you to request that websites “do not track” your browsing behavior on the website. The Platform currently does not respond to such “do not track” signals because there is no consistent industry standard for compliance with such signals. For more information privacy settings and configuring cookies, web beacons, and related technologies please see aboutads.info/choices if you are in the United States or youronlinechoices.eu if you are in the EU.
