    Privacy Policy

    Thank you for visiting our website. The goal of our site is to provide you with information and updates about Change Up Sports and our projects and initiatives, and to give you the opportunity to support our mission by donating or volunteering.


    We want you to know that Change Up Sports values your trust and privacy, and, in turn, we place a high priority on protecting your privacy. This privacy policy was created in order to demonstrate Change Up Sports' firm commitment to the privacy of our website users and donors. This policy explains what types of information is collected by our website and how this information is used.


    What Personally Identifiable Information is Collected

    Change Up Sports collects two types of information from individuals through our website:


    Personal Information: Change Up Sports may collect certain personal information from you via our website, but only when such information is provided by you voluntarily and with your consent during your communication or transactions with us on the site. Examples of information collected include your name, address, phone, and email address.


    Site Usage Information: Change Up Sports may collect certain information regarding your visit to our website and about your computer or device, including information related to your browser, your IP address, the URL of the website from which you came, your usage of the site, and your operating system.


    How We Protect Your Information

    As we take your privacy very seriously, your information is only made available to a limited number of board members (as we are an all volunteer non-profit) solely for essential functions related to their role in running the organization.


    Change Up Sports uses Givebutter (and their processor Stripe) to process online donations and for all financial transactions. We do not collect or store credit card information. We also use Givebutter as our donor database and to send email communications including our e-newsletter, tax-receipts, and acknowledgements. You can learn more about Givebutter’s policies here and Stripe’s policies here. In addition, we use Mailchimp to collect email addresses when you elect to sign up for our e-newsletter. You can learn about Mailchimp’s privacy policy here.


    Our website is protected by an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate and is hosted by Strikingly. We use both Strikingly and Google Analytics to track site usage data and you can read their privacy policies here and here.


    We do not sell, trade, or rent your email addresses, financial information, or any other information to others. Any information you supply to us will be used for the purpose for which it was given and as otherwise allowed by applicable law. Information sharing occurs with third parties who need your information in order to provide services and perform transactions that you request such as those listed above.


    We may also share your personal information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or a legal process; to establish or exercise our legal rights; or defend against legal claims, if disclosure is required or appropriate. In addition, we may share your personal information if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our various terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.


    How We Use Your Information

    We may use the information you provide to:

    • send e-newsletters and communicate with you
    • process and provide tax receipts and acknowledgements for donations
    • respond to and/or process your inquiries, questions, or requests
    • include in our donor database
    • understand and analyze user and donor behavior and characteristics
    • develop new features on our site
