  • Be courteous and respectful. Don’t harass or abuse other members.
  • Don’t post obscene, hateful, or objectionable content. If you do we will remove it and suspend you.

Summary


  • We will never spam you or give your personal information to anyone.
  • You control when and how we send messages to you.
  • You can wipe your account at any time.
  • Other users:

    • ...can’t see you unless they already know your email address or have interacted with you and have your permission to see you.
    • ...can’t see any of your financial transactions except for the ones that involve them.

How we treat your information


We will never spam you.


We do send notifications for new and modified transactions, but you can turn these off.


Your Story owners may request that we send you a reminder to fund their Story, but this is only ever initiated by them - never by us. These messages cannot be customized, and so they cannot be used for spam. You will also receive certain email notifications (forwarded messages, etc.), for which you may opt-out.


We may send you service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. Story creators receive the email addresses of their Funders or Oners if, and only if, the Story is successfully funded.


We will never disclose your personal information without your permission.


We will never sell, rent or share your personal information with a 3rd party, especially your email addresses and phone numbers, without your express permission, unless required by law. Never ever!


We give you full control over your information, including the ability to wipe it from our system.


You can update your account information and preferences at any time. You can destroy your account when you choose. Details on what happens when accounts are destroyed can be found at the FAQs.


We will only access your personal information when:


  • You specifically request us to do so (e.g. funding, you are having technical difficulties).
  • It is required by law.
  • It is necessary to maintain our system.

We will protect your information from other users.


Nobody can see an amount unless they’re part of it. You can only be added to a bill by someone who already knows how to get in touch with you via email or phone.


We may sell, rent or share information about user habits in aggregate only.


We will never do so in a manner that could even remotely be individually identifiable.


For example, we could collect and share information like "what is the average price of dinner for people aged 22-26 living in New York City when they go out with 3 or more friends?" but we would NOT share information like "what are the spending habits of one New Yorker aged 22-26?"


What about your information?


Voluntary Disclosure


Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose in public areas becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by other users. You should exercise caution before disclosing your personal information via these public venues.


Story Creators


By entering into our User Agreement, 1Dollar1Home campaign creators agree to not abuse other users’ personal information. By abuse, we mean not using personal information for any purpose other than those explicitly specified in the campaign creator’s Story, or is not related to fulfilling delivery of a product or service explicitly specified in the Story creator’s Story.


1Dollar1Home Story creators never receive users’ credit card information.


Contributing to Stories


1Dollar1Home may provide you the opportunity to make Contributions to Story Postings on the Service. You may contribute to any Need, Cause, or Stpry with an open Funding Request in any amount you choose. You may contribute to as many Stories as you like.


It is solely your choice to contribute to a Story. You understand that making a Contribution to a Story does not give you any rights in or to that Story, including without limitation any ownership, control, or distribution rights, and that the Story Entity shall be free to solicit other funding for the Story, enter into contracts for the Story, allocate rights in or to the Story, and otherwise direct the Story in its sole discretion. You further understand that nothing in this Agreement or otherwise limit 1Dollar1Home right to enter into agreements or business relationships relating to Stories. 1Dollar1Home does not guarantee that any Story’s Goal will be met. Any VIP Perks offered to you are between you and the Story Entity only, and 1Dollar1Home does not guarantee that VIP Perks will be delivered or satisfactory to you. 1Dollar1Home does not warrant the use of any Story Funding or the outcome of any Story.


Contributions to Stories are nonrefundable.

You acknowledge and agree that all your Contributions are between you, the Story Entity, and the Processor only, and that 1Dollar1Home is not responsible for Contribution transactions, including without limitation any personal or payment information you provide to the Processor.


1Dollar1Home makes no representations regarding the deductibility of any Contribution for tax purposes. Please consult your tax advisor for more information.



What information do we collect?


Personal:   Name, email addresses, phone numbers, password


All passwords are stored on our server in encrypted form - not even we can tell what they are! If you lose your password, we will generate a new one and send it to you.


Optional:  Gender, date-of-birth, zip code


These help us gather demographic information on our users. We may also share this information in the aggregate only. See above.


Transactions:  payments towards Stories


We deal in information about money and debts, not actual money and debts. We;’re not a bank. Think of us, instead, as a bulletin board. The information we store about the debts and credits between people is strictly informative, and carries with it no actual monetary backing or obligations. When you place orders we use a secure server. To the extent you select the secure server method and your browser supports such functionality, all credit card information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.


Regardless of these efforts by us, no data transmission over the public Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.


Usage:  Number of logins, last login, activity and error logs


This data helps us monitor 1Dollar1Home�s health, and diagnose errors and slowness issues when they crop up.


Users Under 13 Years of Age


In light of the concern over protecting children’s privacy online, 1Dollar1Home does not knowingly request, collect, or share personally identifiable information from users under the age of 13. People under 13 are not permitted to use 1Dollar1Home on their own, and so this privacy policy makes no provision for their use of the site.
