Does the cause or charity ever see my data?
No. The cause or charity never sees your data. Since we are donating on your behalf, the cause or charity does not know the email or identity of anyone who donated.
So what happens to my data?
Your data is anonymized (ie; we take out any personally identifiable data-points), then we create consumer analysis reports and sell those reports to fund the donation.

Facebook - We use the standard Facebook Connect protocol (called Oauth).
Shopping history - When you enter your bank credentials to connect a debit or credit card, the credentials do not ever hit our servers. A token is immediately created when passing through the financial API, which validates the connection to the bank. All data is transmitted in encrypted form using SSL (Secure Socket Layer). The connection we establish is on a 'Read-Only' basis, which means we could never manipulate a transaction or account even if we tried.
