Consent to Collection of Personal Information

Other than the information that is provided by our corporate clients to initiate workplace programs, we only collect Personal Information about you after you have provided us with your consent to collect that specific information by registering as a user on MyKartavya Site or when you voluntarily provide Personal Information to us. By voluntarily providing this information to us, you consent to the collection and use of your Personal Information as set out in this Privacy Policy.

The Personal Information provided by our corporate clients to initiate workplace programs is to establish the employee’s eligibility and log-in credentials, to implement payroll giving, if applicable, and provide reporting to our clients based on office location and business units.

Use of Your Personal Information

Where applicable based upon your usage of MyKartavya Site, we may collect and use your Personal Information to:  

  • create and manage your user account;
  • process and report upon your donation, volunteering, charitable gift card, prosocial activities or other transactions;
  • provide client service and related assistance to you or the corporate client of the MyKartavya Site;
  • perform research and analysis aimed at improving the Services, the MyKartavya Platform and the philanthropic landscape;
  • display or provide content that is created by you or customized to your interests and preferences;
  • operate interactive areas of the relevant MyKartavya Site;
  • if you are a contributor to any of the third-party donor advised foundations that form part of the MyKartavya Platform, facilitate your donation transactions and prepare tax information slips or other acknowledgments;
  • interact with our client that has licensed the Site for its employees and other users;
  • if you are a contributor to a news or information forum feature or a user-generated or team fundraising or volunteering event within MyKartavya Site, identify your uploaded content as your content;
  • communicate with you about your donation and volunteering transactions, your use of the Services, and new products and services; and
  • carry out other purposes which are disclosed to you and to which you consent or are permitted or required by applicable law.  

We may send you transaction-related communications such as welcome letters, reminders, donation confirmations, thank-you letters, impact statements and the like. If you are an administrator of a program, we may also send you surveys or marketing communications to inform you of new products or services or other information or offers that may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive surveys or marketing communications, you may opt out by following the “unsubscribe” instructions included within each email communication. Please note that if you choose not to receive marketing or survey communications, you will continue to receive transactional and account communications (e.g., confirmation emails, account balance statements, etc.). We use Personal Information to provide the Services to you, enhance the operation of the MyKartavya Site, improve our marketing and promotional efforts, improve our product and service offerings, and to tailor your experience with causes and other third parties. For example, if you send our client services group an email, we may use your comments and feedback to tell others about our Services and may post your comment in our marketing materials or on a MyKartavya Site. If your comments contain Personal Information such as your name, we will obtain consent from you to post your name along with your comment prior to posting your comment for public view. We utilize third-party service providers to manage credit card processing. Neither MyKartavya, its affiliates, nor the foundations receive or hold your credit card information. These service providers are not permitted to store, retain or use such information except for the purpose of credit card processing of donations, charitable gift cards or other purchases authorized by you through the MyKartavya Site. Details of their respective privacy and information practices are accessible through their respective merchant platforms that may be accessed via or integrated with a MyKartavya Site. Our Platform is designed to facilitate efficient employer and corporate matching programs and is not intended for the processing of “sensitive information” as defined in various jurisdictions including personal health, financial or confidential Personal Information. The categories of Personal Information that we may collect include: (a) limited identifiers including, but not limited to, name, alias, postal address, unique personal identifier, Internet Protocol (IP) address, email address; and (b) some internet activity information, including but not limited to search (for a cause) history, donation and volunteering activity, information regarding your interaction with our Sites, application, or advertisement. The purposes for the collection, use and disclosure of this information are described above. We may share your Personal Information in a business transfer. As with any other business, we could merge with or be acquired by another company. If this occurs, the successor company would acquire the information we maintain, including Personal Information, subject of course to this Privacy Policy. We may share your Personal Information with the cause that you have made a donation or grant to, volunteered with or engaged in other prosocial activities, with your prior written consent, unless required by applicable law. We do not sell your Personal Information to any third party but only transfer Personal Information to sub processors as necessary to provide our service. MyKartavya remains responsible to you for any of your Personal Information that is shared with third-party sub processors. (However, if your privacy settings are configured on a particular donation to direct us to release your Personal Information to the charitable or non-profit organization to which you are donating, you acknowledge that although MyKartavya takes reasonable steps to obtain assurance from such organizations to not, unless required by law, disclose your Personal Information without your consent, MyKartavya is not responsible for that organization’s use of such information.) We may share your information for our protection and the protection of others. We reserve the right to disclose your Personal Information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on the MyKartavya Site; enforce or apply this Privacy Policy, the terms of use or other agreements; or protect the rights, property or safety of the MyKartavya Site, its users, corporate host or others.  

Correcting and Updating Your Personal Information

Users participating in relevant workplace programs may update or change their registration information by editing their user or organization record on the MyKartavya Site. To update a user profile, please log in to the MyKartavya Site with your username and password and click on your name in the header or “User Profile” in the footer.

To discontinue your account, please contact your employer in the case of the corporate host or email at mykartavya@nasscomfoundation.org. Any user may request to access or correct their Personal Information by contacting us at mykartavya@nasscomfoundation.org. We will respond to requests to access, change or delete such information within 30 days and may be under an obligation to share such request with the corporate host of the MyKartavya Site.  

Retention and Destruction/Anonymization of Personal Information

We retain Personal Information we collect from you in accordance with applicable law and where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you or your employer have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). Indian law allows us, for legal or business purposes, to retain Personal Information for as long as is reasonable. Upon expiry of an appropriate retention period, bearing in mind reasonable legal and business requirements, Personal Information will either be destroyed in a secure manner or made anonymous.  

Personal Information Preferences

In addition to you controlling the marketing and survey information that may be sent to you as described previously in this Policy, we offer users who provide contact or other Personal Information a means to choose how we use the information you provide. You may manage your receipt of non-transactional communications and whether we share your contact information and donation data with the causes to which you donate your time or money by selecting or unselecting the appropriate box in your user profile or the donation forms that are part of the relevant MyKartavya Site. Additionally, you may send a request specifying your communications preferences to mykartavya@nasscomfoundation.org.
