This policy describes how Blue State Digital (“BSD”) uses your personal information when you use QuickDonate to complete a transaction. As used in this policy, the term “personal information” means information that can be directly associated with you, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, etc.
BSD and Stripe
QuickDonate relies on Stripe as the payment processor for all donations, as well as a unique “Stripe Customer ID” to charge your card. Stripe is a global payment gateway and is a PCI Level 1 payment processor, providing industry-standard security for all user information. Credit card numbers are never stored on BSD servers. Neither BSD nor Stripe will share your payment information with anyone. You can read all of Stripe’s security details here: https://stripe.com/help/security.
When you first enroll in QuickDonate, Stripe -- not Blue State Digital -- will store a copy of your credit card number. Stripe then gives a code -- called a Customer ID -- to the QuickDonate system. This ID allows QuickDonate to make charges against your credit card in the future without you having to re-enter your card information.
Organizations Using QuickDonate
Organizations using QuickDonate will not automatically have access to your contact information. However, if you visit the website of another participating organization, that organization will receive your contact information that would be needed for completing any ordinary non-QuickDonate transaction with that organization through their donation process. QuickDonate makes this easier by removing the need for you to enter your information a second time.
