Privacy Policy


CollectiveAid Network (“CollectiveAid”) is committed to respecting your privacy. We recognize your need for control of personally identifiable information that you share with CollectiveAid. Personally identifiable information is information that only pertains to you as an individual such as your name, address, phone number or credit card number. CollectiveAid does not collect sensitive information about individuals except when specifically and knowingly provided by such individuals.

SECURITY

In addition to providing you with secure email, IM and messaging products, CollectiveAid uses a COMODO CA Limited (https://www.comodo.com) digitally signed certificate to process all sensitive information securely through SSL encryption. This encryption is used during the registration process, credit card processing, and user login.

A password must be created that contains at minimum six (6) characters. Your gender, date of birth, email address, country of residence and zip code/mail code are required as well. For email accounts, your first name, last name and alternative email address are also required.

If you are signing up for any of CollectiveAid’s paid accounts you will be required to enter your credit card type, card number, CCID number, expiration date of your card, your name as it appears on your account and the billing address on your account. Please note, for your safety, we do not maintain any data from your credit card submission. We use Paypal to process your payment. Your credit card debit will show as a charge from CollectiveAid Network. Your data is sent to a third party credit card processor such as Paypal.com for credit card processing. The credit card processor is prohibited from using any personally identifiable information for any other purpose than for payment processing. You will be returned to the CollectiveAid site on successful completion to learn more about your new account and begin using it.
