Does Software for Good share my personal information?

There are certain circumstances under which Software for Good might share the information we collect.

Sometimes we need help from third-party service providers to operate our website and administer activities on our behalf, such as distributing our email newsletter and hosting online events. These third-party vendors need access to some information about our users.

However, they are required to protect the confidentiality of the information, and to use it only for the limited purpose for which it was provided.

Yes. If you aren’t aware, certain web browsers allow you to set your privacy preference to Do Not Track (DNT). We respect DNT signals, and when recognized do not load analytics.

If Software for Good becomes aware that we have any information about anyone under 13, we will promptly delete the information.
