We understand your concerns about safety and security and want to assure you that we make every effort to safeguard your privacy when you make donations through our platform or otherwise utilize our services. Our mission is to help you support fundraisers for Adivasi welfare, anywhere in India – in a convenient and secure manner.

The information below spells out the privacy and security practices of our for-profit entity Tribalzone Network.  This Privacy Policy describes the types of information Tribalzone Network may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit our websites or mobile sites (including sub-domains, web pages within this site or any equivalent mirror, replacement, substitute, or backup website), or any other website, mobile site or application that links to this Privacy Policy, accessed via any device, or accessing or using any of our Services (collectively, the “Websites”).  “Services” means any of the Tribalzone Network products or services.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, please do not hesitate to contact us. If you do not agree with any of the terms and conditions in this Privacy Policy, please discontinue using the Websites and our Services.

This Privacy Policy is organized into three sections: (1) “General Provisions,” which apply to everyone using or visiting the Websites; (2) “Special Privacy & Security Provisions for Donors,” which apply only to users who make donations through our Websites; and (3) “Special Privacy & Security Provisions for Nonprofits, Customers, and Potential Customers,” which apply specifically to nonprofits who use or consider using our Services.

1. General Provisions


We take reasonable security precautions to protect the personal information that we collect and you provide to us. We meet commercially reasonable standards for online payment protection. We use up-to-date industry-accepted tools and technology protocols, including but not limited to, firewalls and encryption, to protect against the loss, misuse and unauthorized alteration of the information we collect. Tribalzone Network helps to protect your information by working with our service providers who provide a secure and safe environment for credit card donations. Please remember that the safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or you have chosen) a login ID or password to access certain services or areas of the Websites, you are responsible for keeping this ID and/or password confidential. We ask that you not share such information with anyone or allow anyone to sign-in using your credentials.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to us. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures we put in place for your protection.

What Information Do We Collect?

As discussed in greater detail below, we collect two types of information: personal information you submit to us voluntarily and information we collect automatically when you use our Websites or Services. “Personal information” is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person. Personal information we collect may include your name, phone number, mailing address, email address and payment information, such as last four digits of credit card number and expiration date. We outline data we collect in more detail below. We may collect information from you when you use our Websites, such as when you sign up for a Tribalzone Network, subscribe to our newsletters, register to attend a webinar, or make a donation.

When you submit payment information to us via the Websites, you consent to providing your payment information to us and to our service providers processing the donation to the extent required to provide our Services to you. When we collect payment information directly from you, we transmit this payment information directly to our service provider.

This information may be provided:

  • in the course of communications between you and us (including by phone, email, chat, Website or otherwise);
  • when you register for an account and/or fill out an application form;

We also collect information from you automatically.  Like most website administrators, we use log files that record information such as Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and page navigation. We gather this information to track website visitor movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Our goal in gathering this information is to learn how our customers and the public are using our Services. IP addresses that are recorded by our log files are not linked to personal identifiers.

From Whom Do We Collect This Information?

We may collect information directly from you.  We may also receive personal information from other sources, including from our service providers any of the other websites we operate or the other services we provide (if you use any of them); information we obtain from publicly available sources such as Facebook or LinkedIn; information from public records in order to conduct due diligence or for conducting fraud prevention checks or to supplement your profile.

How We Share Your Information

Recipient NGO’s

When you make a donation via a NGO website that subscribes and links to a DonateNow or Fundraising Pages, your full contact information will be shared with that NGO. When you make a donation via the Websites, other services, or a partner website that uses our donation processing services, you may be asked what information you wish to be shared with the recipient NGOs. You may have a choice of: full contact information, name and email address only, or no contact information (an anonymous donation).

Corporate partners: We partner with other organizations and companies to enable donations for Adivasi welfare. Please be aware that donor information shared through a corporate partner site is accessible by the partner and us. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of our partners and any donor information shared through partner sites. Any such information is subject to that partner’s privacy policy.

However, when donations are “Powered by Tribalzone Network,” the donor information shared with recipient NGOs is subject to our Privacy Policy.

Our Professional Advisers

We may disclose your information to our professional advisers, including accountants, lawyers, and other professional advisers that assist us in carrying out our business activities.

Complying With the Legal System

Though Tribalzone Network makes every effort to preserve donor and customer privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order, or legal process served on our organization.  We also may disclose your personal information to third parties if we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to conduct investigations of possible breaches of law, to cooperate in any legal investigation, or to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating any agreement with us, including our Terms & Conditions.

We may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide as described in this Privacy Policy to any buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by us about users of our Websites is among the assets transferred.

In the event that Tribalzone Network is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, consolidation, change of control, liquidation, reorganization, or sale or transfer of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. Our obligations in this Privacy Policy will apply to your information as transferred to the new entity.

Disclosure or Transfer of Data to Service Providers

We may use service providers to help operate and improve our Websites, assist us in providing products or services to you, to process and collect payments, to provide analytics, or provide tools we embed into our Websites, products, and services. We may share information we have about you with such service providers, solely for their use to provide services to us. Please be aware that such service providers have their own privacy policies, which govern their use of your information collected directly from you. For a full list of such service providers and their privacy policies, please contact us.

Other Terms

Do Not Track Requests; Third-Party Tracking

Tribalzone Network does not currently take actions to respond to Do Not Track signals sent by your web browser because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard once one is created.  Third parties, other than our service providers (such as our website analytics providers), do not have authorization from us to track which websites you visited prior to and after visiting the Websites.  That said, we cannot control third-party tracking and there may be some third-party tracking that occurs without our knowledge or consent.

Notice to Residents of Countries Outside India.

We are based in India. Any personal information you provide may be stored and maintained in a secure database in India or transferred to a secure database outside India.  Personal information may be accessed by us or transferred to us in India or to our affiliates, business partners, or service providers elsewhere in the world.  If you are located outside of India, be advised that any information you provide to us will be transferred to and stored in India and that, by submitting information to us, you explicitly authorize its transfer and storage within India.  We will protect the privacy and security of personal information according to this Privacy Policy regardless of where it is processed or stored.

No Services For Minors

We do not knowingly collect information from minors. To use the Websites, you must be the age of legal majority in your place of residence.  By using the Websites, you hereby represent that you are at least the age of legal majority in your place of residence.  We do not use an application or other mechanism to determine the age of users of the Websites.   We will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete information associated with a minor as soon as practicable if we learn that a minor has submitted information to us. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 18, please contact us via the methods listed in the “Contact Us” section below.

Accessing, Modifying, Correcting and Deleting Your Information

If you would like to access, modify, correct, or delete your personal information, please contact us via the methods listed in the “Contact Us” section below. When you contact us, you may be required to provide us some details to verify your identity in this case. We may not accommodate a request to change or delete information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement, cause the information to be incorrect, or we are unable to verify your identity.  In addition, if you have provided your information to the NGOs you supported through Tribalzone Network in accordance with this Privacy Policy, you may need to contact that charity instead, if the relevant personal information is only accessible by that charity.  If we have received your information from a third party, we may not be able to modify, correct or delete your information.

Changes to the Policy

Tribalzone Network periodically reviews and updates this Privacy Policy. If we decide to change this Privacy Policy, we will post those changes to our Websites so our donors and customers are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.  We may also, in our sole discretion, notify you of such changes via our e-Newsletter or email to your email address that we have in our records.  Any updates or changes to this Privacy Policy will become effective upon posting.  By continuing to access or use any of our Websites after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.

2. Special Provisions for Donors

The information that you provide is used only to complete your donation, provide you with a donation receipt or, upon request, provide you with a donation history. With your permission, your name and contact information will be provided to the NGOs you supported through Tribalzone Network. If you do not wish share your name and contact information with the NGOs you supported through Tribalzone Network or you choose to make your donation anonymously, Tribalzone Network will not share your name or contact information. Tribalzone Network provides a field to include an optional dedication with the donation. Tribalzone Network reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove text from this field before it is provided to the designated NGO, for example, if Tribalzone Network deems it inappropriate, offensive, or misrepresentative.

When you create an account with Tribalzone Network you may choose to receive your donation records and occasional email updates on your favorite Fundraisers. If you do not wish to hear from us, simply uncheck the box on the bottom of the billing page, unsubscribe from a mailing using the “unsubscribe” link, or contact us via the methods listed in the “Contact Us” section above directly.

  • Add This Social Sharing: If you use the social sharing features on the Websites to inform a friend about our Websites or Services, you will be asked to provide the friend’s name and email address. Tribalzone Network stores this information for the sole purpose of sending a one-time email and will not add your friend to our mailing list.

Special note on corporate partners:  Tribalzone Network partners with other organizations and companies to enable giving across the Internet. Please be aware that donor information shared through a corporate partner site is accessible by the partner and Tribalzone Network. Tribalzone Network is not responsible for the privacy practices of our partners and any donor information shared through partner sites. Any such information is subject to that partner’s privacy policy.

However, when donations are “Powered by Tribalzone Network,” the donor information shared with recipient charities is subject to Tribalzone Network’s Privacy Policy.

Special note on NGOs:  Each NGO has its own policies regarding privacy of donor information. Please contact the NGO you contribute to directly to learn about their privacy policies. We will only pass on the information you provide us if you authorize us to do so.

What information is being shared by Tribalzone Network with the recipient NGO?

When you make a donation via a NGO website that subscribes and links to a DonateNow or any Fundraising pages hosted by Tribalzone Network, your full contact information will be shared with that NGO.  When you make a donation via the Websites, other Tribalzone Network products, or a partner website that uses Tribalzone Network’s donation processing services, you may be asked what information you wish to be shared with the recipient NGOs. You may have a choice of: full contact information, name and email address only, or no personal information (anonymous).  Tribalzone Network respects donor privacy and only shares information with donor consent.  For example, when a donor has asked to remain anonymous, no information is shared with the NGO – we simply confirm that a donation has been made.


Tribalzone Network uses “session cookies” while a visitor is making a donation via Tribalzone Network hypertext links, sometimes referred to as donation buttons. “Cookies” are bits of information that are stored by your browser on your hard drive. We use “session cookies” to help us verify a donor’s identity as they move from one donation page to the next. Information collected by these session cookies is not linked to personal identifiers.

3. Special Provisions for Nonprofits, Customers, and Potential Customers

You may choose to register to receive additional information or Services from us. When you register, we request personal information about you such as your name, email address and/or telephone number, and we may ask for other information to enable us to provide a more relevant, personalized service to you. The information you provide may be stored in our databases. We endeavour to limit our requests for personal information to information we believe is minimally necessary to achieve our stated collection purposes.  We may also supplement your profile information with publicly available data, such as zip codes and other demographic information.

We also collect payment information so that we can process one-time and/or recurring fees and to carefully screen organizations for our subscription services to ensure that their programmatic work meets the scope of our vision statement. Applicants fill out an online Application Form, which our customer service staff reviews. We may contact an applicant to verify information. The one-time and recurring fees are processed through a credit card processing company. Nonprofit customers can log into their password protected “My Account” section to update any personal information.

Tribalzone Network offers its own free e-Newsletter that it sends out to nonprofit customers and other interested individuals that includes online fundraising and marketing advice and training opportunities. Subscribers may choose to unsubscribe at any time and unsubscribe information is located at the bottom of each e-Newsletter. Individuals who donate to nonprofits through the Tribalzone Network DonateNow or other Fundraising page service are not subscribed to this e-Newsletter.

When you download any of our content, such as eGuides, or register for one of our webinars, we collect your personal and organizational information such as: name, address, email address, phone number, etc. Webinar registration information is collected through an event registration service provider who shares the information with Tribalzone Network, but that service provider is not permitted by us to retain, share, store, or use personal information for any secondary purposes. Subscribers may choose to unsubscribe at any time and unsubscribe information is located at the bottom of each e-Newsletter or email communication.


For our nonprofit customers, we use “session cookies” and “persistent cookies” in addition to our other processes for verifying personal information, so that we can provide secure access to account and donor information. Information collected by these session cookies is not linked to personal identifiers.
