The collecting, use, processing, storage, transfer and disclosure of your Personal Information (as defined below) will be limited to the terms under which authorization is provided to Beyond. Beyond is committed to compliance with relevant data privacy laws, including GDPR and applicable laws in the USA.
Collection of Your Personal Information
Personal information (“Personal Information”) is data that can be used to identify (either directly or indirectly) an individual to whom the information applies. The information that we may collect from you includes your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, login username, marketing preferences, social media account information, and as applicable, IP address.
Beyond will not collect any Personal Information about you unless you voluntarily choose to provide it to us (e.g. to obtain a newsletter subscription, register for marketing events, promotions or job applications), you provide your explicit consent, or unless it is permitted by applicable laws and regulations.
Disclosure to Third Parties, Service Providers, and Others
Beyond may store, process, or share your Personal Information with our credit card processors, data hosts and service providers in order to perform a function or complete a transaction you initiated at our website.
There are times when Beyond may be required to disclose your Personal Information by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities. Beyond may also disclose your Personal Information for purposes of investigations of threats to national security, compliance with requests from law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, or when we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users.
Beyond will collect, use or disclose Personal Information supplied by you, for the purposes disclosed to you, unless the disclosure is a use of the Personal Information for an additional purpose related to the original purpose; is necessary to prepare, negotiate and perform a contract with you; is required by law or competent governmental authority; is necessary to establish or preserve a legal claim or defense against a legal claim; or is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activities.

Accuracy and Retention of Personal Information
Communications and Subscription Preferences
You have the choice to determine what information you receive from Beyond, and how such information is received by specifying your communication preferences. If you wish to discontinue receiving marketing and/or non-transactional emails from us, you may opt out by contacting our Donor Relations staff (email@example.com) or using an “unsubscribe” link in any email. We would like to emphasize that this provision does not apply to transactional emails related to donations or other relationships with Beyond.
In the event you choose not to provide certain personal information, we may not be able to respond completely or adequately to your questions. When adequate information is provided, we will use your that information for the limited purpose of sending you important notices relating to your donations and changes to our policies and agreements, or for other reasons permitted by applicable law.
Beyond takes the security of Personal Information seriously. To protect your Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration, Beyond uses technical and organizational security measures to prevent any unauthorized disclosure or access.
Data Security Breach
Beyond has implemented strict security controls and processes to protect our information systems. Beyond has a Data Breach Notification Policy and an established Incident Response Team that will react once we become aware of any unauthorized access to our information systems or databases. If any data security breach occurs that may impact your Personal Information, you will be notified as soon as possible once the breach has been determined.
Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information
When you access beyond.org, we may automatically collect non-Personal Information even if you don’t register. For example, this information may include the operating system used, the domain name of the website that directed you to our website, the number of visits, average time spent on a page and what pages you viewed. We may use this data and share it with our affiliates to monitor the content and relevancy of the content on our website in order to improve
the performance, content or your experience on our websites.
Through your use of services to access our website, your communications data (for example, IP Address) or utilization data (information on the telecommunications services you accessed) may be technically generated and could, depending on the applicable law, constitute Personal Information. To the extent it is a necessity, the collection and processing of your communications or utilization data, and the subsequent use of such data will only occur and be performed in accordance with the applicable data privacy protection framework and laws.
Third Party Websites and Links
Beyond is only responsible for privacy practices of Beyond’s website and online services inherent to that website. For convenience purposes, Beyond’s website may contain links to other websites for additional information. Beyond does not control those other websites, endorse or make any representation about other website
s, and is not responsible for the privacy practices of those other websites.
Right to be Forgotten
Beyond is committed to taking reasonable steps to ensure that any requests for Personal Information to be forgotten will be executed in a timely manner once the request is received. Beyond will do everything possible to erase your Personal Information if you withdraw your consent (opt out); however, Beyond will not be able to erase all of your Personal Information if it is technically impossible due to limitations to existing technology, or for legal reasons (e.g. Beyond is mandated by local law to keep the Personal Information).
Due to the nature of Beyond’s endeavors, we do not market to or provide any services specifically for children. Consequently, Beyond does not collect Personal Information for the purpose of marketing or creating user profiles for children.
