QuickDonate Terms

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.

Information that BSD Collects

When you contribute to candidates, causes and committees using QuickDonate, BSD is required to collect your name, postal address, phone number, and email address. Some organizations are also required by law to collect your occupation and employer. This information is sent along with each donation to a QuickDonate organization. BSD will collect and process all information received via QuickDonate in accordance with the terms of our Privacy Policy.

Why We Collect Your E-mail Address

BSD requires your e-mail address when you donate so that we can identify you across QuickDonate organizations. QuickDonate also uses your e-mail address to verify your identity; rather than ask for a password when logging in to the system, we send you a secure link that you can use to prove that you are the owner of the account associated with that e-mail. QuickDonate will send you information about your account, including how to manage your personal and payment information and confirmations of new verified devices. Organizations using QuickDonate will also e-mail you receipts for your donations. BSD will process all information recieved via QuickDonate in accordance with the terms of our Privacy Policy

Credit Card Information

Credit card information is transmitted securely from your browser to Stripe. BSD does not store or handle this information.

Cookies

Some parts of the QuickDonate site use cookies. A “cookie” is a tiny text file that is stored on your computer and enables you to return to protected areas on our website and securely access your payment information, without having to re-verify your device. You can disable these cookies by modifying your web browser preferences; however, you will not be able to use QuickDonate in this case.

IP Addresses

BSD logs IP addresses, which are the locations of computers or networks on the Internet, and analyzes them for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. BSD also aggregates the number of page hits in order to track the popularity of certain pages and improve the quality of our service. There is no personal information collected in our log files.

Changes

Please note, we may change these terms, at any time without prior notice to you, and any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised QuickDonate Terms. However, BSD will use your Personal Information in a manner consistent with the Privacy Policy in effect at the time you submitted the information, unless you consent to a new or revised policy.
