Let us know your fundraising plans and find out how we can help!
Edco is a fundraising solution to help K-12 schools raise the funds and access the resources necessary to enrich the educational experience for all students. One of our core tenets is that every community member can contribute to the community’s success. In order to help this happen, and to provide a secure, efficient and personalized user experience, we request and collect information from users.The App is intended to provide a great experience without requiring you to submit any more Personal Information (“PI”) than is necessary. We do not require you to register or submit PI in order to visit the App and some activities on the App can be performed without providing PI. When we ask for PI to, for instance, set up an account, create a project page, or make a donation, we will not require any more PI than we believe is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity. We collect the following categories of information from you:
We may obtain address information about you from third-party sources for fraud prevention or for legal compliance. We may also collect Personal Information from you as a result of your email communication with us or your posts which we may retain along with our responses.You can choose not to provide us with certain PI, but then you may not be able to take advantage of all of the services and products offered on the App. We allow you to change or correct inaccuracies in your PI at any time, by logging into your account and making changes to your PI.
If you represent a charitable or educational organization or other organization or an entity with a charitable purpose (each a “Charity”) and you establish a record for the Charity with Edco, we will collect the name, tax ID, physical address of the Charity, and any other information that is provided to us by publicly available data sources, such as the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, about your Charity. We may also collect the email address, birthday, and phone number of the person who establishes a Charity account and claims the Charity (the “Charity Admin”), and any other information that the Charity Admin chooses to provide, including any photos uploaded to the App.
From time to time, we may also ask you to provide us with non-personally identifiable information that is data that is not intended to allow us to identify you personally, such as your first name, birthday, or zip code. Your non-personally identifiable information may be aggregated and used for our internal purposes or for creating reports for third-party advertisers and partners, or otherwise shared with third parties for any lawful purpose, without your permission. We also may automatically collect App usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of users on the App, pages visited, and similar data. This aggregate information helps us to determine general usage patterns and modify our Services in order to improve your experience. This type of aggregate information may be shared with third parties at any time, but no third-party is intended to be able to know who you are as a result of the use of your non-personally identifiable information.
When you provide us with your PI, we may use such information for a variety of purposes, including:
Edco will not sell or rent any of your personally identifiable information to third parties for their marketing purposes.
Edco may give, share, sell, or trade your PI to or with any third parties under the following circumstances:
When you make a donation or sign up to support a Charity or an organization or event associated a project, Edco may share with the Charity, Charity Admin, and other users, your name, address, email address, birth date, donation amount, date of transaction, transaction identification number, and other PI. If you wish to stop receiving communications from a Charity, please contact the Charity directly.
We may retain other companies and individuals to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples include, but are not limited to, companies and individuals who: (i) administer Edco accounts; (ii) process donations; (iii) conduct surveys or promotional activities; (iv) deliver products; or (v) provide customer support, web hosting, internet service, and data analysis. Such third parties may be provided with access to PI needed to perform their functions but may not use such information for any other purpose.

In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your PI, we will notify you if reasonably possible and as reasonably necessary so that you can take appropriate protective steps.You should be aware, that Edco has no control over the security of other websites and appsthat you might use even when a link may appear to those websites from our App. If you share your computer or use a computer that is accessed by others, remember to sign off and close your browser window when you have finished your session.
