Please keep in mind that certain information submitted to the Platform is publicly available. For example, any posts and comments you make, and any information and content submitted by a nonprofit on its profile or entity page or in connection with a giving impact video or statement, will be viewable to other users of the Platform. Information you choose to provide in these areas will immediately be visible to the public, and other users will be able to view and potentially store or share such information. That information is not subject to this Policy, which instead covers information collected in non-public ways through the Platform, as further described below.
