In addition, we may collect your Personal Information from third parties when you have given your consent to us or to another party who holds Personal Information about you to allow us access to that Personal Information. The type of information that we collect from you may include the following: your name, phone number, address, e-mail address, employer details, company position/title, donation amount, IP address, or cookies, and any other Personal Information which we may reasonably require to perform our obligations and exercise our rights under our agreement with you.
Our main purpose in collecting information about you is to allow us to provide you with the services you have requested from us, including processing donations and administering grants.
In order to operate our services, CAF India may sometimes share your Personal Information with its related entities, charities, employers, service providers, advisers and other entities with whom CAF India has a relationship, in the course of operating the services. For example, if you make a donation to a NGO via one of CAF India's payroll giving services, CAF India will provide your employer and the relevant NGO with aggregate reporting of donations and details of individual payments, which may contain your Personal Information.

We employ security measures to protect your personal information from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage.

We will retain your information for a reasonable period or as long as the law requires.
If you are a donor via a CAF India's giving program (such as Give4Good), we may use your Personal Information to contact you on an ongoing basis in relation to your participation in the program, including sending you regular statements about your donation activities (including via email).
If you are receiving emails or other messages from another party (including a charity) and do not wish to continue receiving this information, you should contact that other party to ask to be removed from their mailing list.
