Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At KarmaLaunch we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can't stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don't store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

KarmaLaunch, Inc. (“KarmaLaunch”, “us”, “our”) operates one US website KarmaLaunch.com. It is KarmaLaunch's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, KarmaLaunch collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. KarmaLaunch's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how KarmaLaunch's visitors use its website. From time to time, KarmaLaunch may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

KarmaLaunch also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users. KarmaLaunch only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to KarmaLaunch's websites choose to interact with KarmaLaunch in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that KarmaLaunch gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our pre-registration process for their email address, name, business channel and comments. Those who engage in transactions with KarmaLaunch – by successfully completing a Launch, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, KarmaLaunch collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with us.

During the donation process, all donors have the ability to share their basic contact information with the recipient of their donation. This includes first name and email address only. No other information will be sent or communicated. Should you wish to remain anonymous, there is a site preference available to you during the donation process. Anonymous, in this case, refers only to this information and only during this process. You are still subject to all other disclosures as outlined in this and the Terms of Service.

During the checkout process, we store the names and email addresses of each successful purchaser. This information is then provided in an obfuscated form to each Launcher, who, at their discretion, may use this information to contact their buyers in the futre. Each buyer may opt out of this process upon the receipt of their first Launcher-based email.

KarmaLaunch may also make use of certain features included in the Google Analytics framework; including Remarketing with Google Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, DoubleClick Platform integrations, Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, and many others. Additional information regarding some of these terms can be found here.

For more information regarding the data collection opt-out process for Google Analytics, please check here.

KarmaLaunch does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from being paid for their efforts.

Aggregated Statistics

KarmaLaunch may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, KarmaLaunch may monitor the most popular Launches in order to determine trends or direct updates in our marketing efforts. KarmaLaunch may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, KarmaLaunch does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

KarmaLaunch discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on KarmaLaunch's behalf or to provide services available at KarmaLaunch's website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using KarmaLaunch's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. KarmaLaunch will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, KarmaLaunch discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when KarmaLaunch believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of KarmaLaunch, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a KarmaLaunch website and have supplied your email address, KarmaLaunch may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with KarmaLaunch and our products. We primarily use our blog and help system to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. KarmaLaunch takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

What about children's privacy?

KarmaLaunch wouldn't dream of creating a place where harnessing passion to do the right thing meant excluding our world's future. It simply makes no sense. However, we do want to make sure people under 18 are protected, and that parents and guardians are aware of the information we track. If you still have questions after reading through this policy, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Teens 13 to 17

Policy: If you are between the ages of 13 and 17, you can use the KarmaLaunch site with the consent and supervision of your parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years old, provided that your parent or legal guardian also agrees to be bound by our Terms. Your parent or legal guardian also agrees to be responsible for your actions while you're using KarmaLaunch.

Children Under 13

Policy: As much as we'd love to put your ideas to good work, we have to remind you that our site is currently off limits to anyone under the age of 13. As outlined in the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, we are in a position to collect too much personal information for your age group. We ask that you close your browser and not continue using the site.

Cookies

A cookie is a complex string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. KarmaLaunch uses cookies to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of our website, and their website access preferences. KarmaLaunch visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using our websites, with the drawback that certain features of KarmaLaunch's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If KarmaLaunch, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that KarmaLaunch goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of KarmaLaunch may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Comments and Reviews

Comments and review-related content submitted to our site becomes the sole property of KarmaLaunch and may be used at our discretion.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, KarmaLaunch may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in KarmaLaunch's sole discretion. KarmaLaunch encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
