Privacy Policy

Welcome to DocWorld.org websites, mobile applications, or widgets. We provide a platform for services related to the creation of accounts and processing of donations. This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) describes and governs how we collect, use, share and protect information collected in the context of our Services. Before you use or submit any information through or in connection with the Services, please carefully review this Policy. By using any part of the Services, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your information as outlined in this Policy.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you use or otherwise access the Services, we collect information in multiple ways, including when you provide information directly to us, and when we passively collect information from your browser or device (e.g., by logging how you interact with our Services). While you are under no obligation to provide us with such information, should you choose to withhold such information, we may not be able to provide you with some or all the Services.

  1. Information That You Provide Directly to Us:

At the time of registration, when creating a fundraiser, and for setting up withdrawals, we collect your contact details (such as name and email address), zip code, country, your phone number (for purposes of multi-factor authentication and to send you important messages) and any information you choose to provide us. When you register for our Services or open an account, we collect your email address and login details, your pin code, your country, your phone number (for purposes of multi-factor authentication and to provide you with important messages) and any information you choose to provide us (such as a profile picture).

When you create a fundraiser on the Platform, we collect the information you choose to provide us in relation to your fundraiser and we display it through our Platform. These include a fundraiser title, fundraiser category, images, and your fundraiser goal(s).  You might choose to provide us with information relating to third parties by organizing a fundraiser for a family member or friend, and in doing so, you disclose the name or circumstances of that family member or friend.  By providing information in a fundraiser, you consent to our collection, storage and use of your data.  If you upload personal data related to third parties, you acknowledge and agree that you have the authority of the relevant third parties for us to access and use the relevant data and that you have notified the third parties and informed them of how their information is collected and used by DocWorld to provide the Services. We reserve the right to identify you as the person who has made the referral in any messages that are sent to them. Our payment processors also collect and maintain information related to your withdrawal of funds from any fundraiser.

  1. Public Communications:

You can post comments, feedbacks and thank you notes and communicate with other users on our platform. Any content posted by you will be available to public by default. Any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information for both us and other users to use and share. Avoid sharing personal data unless you intend for that data to become public. Please be considerate and respectful of others while using the community to share your opinions. We reserve the right, but do not have the obligation, to review and monitor such posting or any other content on our Services, and to remove postings or content that may be viewed as inappropriate or offensive to others.

  1. Communications to DocWorld:

You may contact us via a contact form, email, by chat services or by other means (for questions about our Services, customer support, or to let us know your ideas for new products or modifications to existing products). You may also choose to respond to surveys that we send out, or queries about your fundraisers.  When you do so, we collect the information you choose to provide us, such as your contact details, any images you choose to upload and the contents and nature of your message. We would ask that you take care not to send financial information or other sensitive personal data to us through our chat services or other means unless we ask you specifically for that data as part of providing our Service to you.  When you provide such information to us directly, you consent to the processing of this data by DocWorld and/or our service providers.

  1. Sensitive information:

You can also provide us with information about yourself or third parties that is considered sensitive, such as political opinions, health information or religious beliefs.  If you post this information in a fundraiser, you choose to provide such information to be published publicly in relation to your fundraiser, donation or otherwise. When you provide such information to us directly, you consent to the processing of this data by DocWorld and/or its service providers.
