This Privacy Notice applies to the processing of Personal Information collected in the context of this Mastercard donation service site and widget (the “Service”) which provides the channel to donate to charities and causes identified on this Service. This Privacy Notice applies to this Service in connection with your participation in the Mastercard donation service (the “Program”) and it does not cover the collection and use of your Personal Information on other Mastercard branded platforms or by your Mastercard issuers (e.g., your bank) or any other information or communications that may refer to Mastercard outside this program (e.g., communications from banks).
This Privacy Notice describes the types of Personal Information we collect in connection with the Service, the purposes for which we collect that Personal Information, the other parties with whom we may share it and the measures we take to protect the security of the data. It also tells you about your rights and choices with respect to your Personal Information and how you can reach us to update your contact information or get answers to questions you may have about our privacy practices.
For the purpose of this Privacy Notice, “Personal Information” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. In connection with the Service, we obtain Personal Information relating to you from various sources described below.
Where applicable, we indicate whether and why you must provide us with your Personal Information, as well as the consequences of failing to do so.

When you use the Service, we may collect certain information by automated means via cookies and similar technologies, such as IP address, MAC address, device ID, location data, information on actions taken on the Service, dates and times of actions, and other mobile trackers.
