1. What data do we collect?

The OutProud Group collects the following information:

  • Personal identification information: Your e-mail address.
  • PayPal information: The e-mail address on your PayPal account, your first and last names, and your unique payer ID.
  • Payment information: The unique transaction ID, the date of transaction, and any message you may have attached to the donation.

2. How do we collect your data?

We collect data and process data when:

  • you register for a donor account online on our website;
  • you make a donation directly to us through PayPal;
  • your monthly donation is sent to us by PayPal, given you have chosen to make recurring donations.

With the exception of the e-mail address that you provide us with when registering, we receive most of your data directly from PayPal when you make a single or recurring donation.

3. How will we use your data?

The OutProud Group collects this data for:

  • compliance with law enforcement agencies, if required by law.
  • improved management of our funds and expenses.
  • anonymous statistics and analytics (while your e-mail address is linked to your donation, this is dropped when the data is used for statistics).
  • future potential rewards as a thank you to donors. This is not in effect as of yet, but may happen in the future.

We do not share any personal information with advertisers or other third-parties.

4. How do we store your data?

The data collected by The OutProud Group is stored by Hostinger in the United Kingdom.

Transaction records are stored indefinitely, however the personal details (i.e. your e-mail address, and your first and last names) attached to the transaction details are only kept for 2 years. Once this time period ends, we will strip this data from our records, leaving only the transaction ID, payer ID, and payment date and amount.

Inactive donor accounts are automatically deleted from our database 1 year after their last donation. If an account has never made a donation, it will be deleted from our database 3 months after registration.
