WHAT'S ONLY SHARED WITH CAMPAIGN OWNERS
When you sponsor a project, the project’s creator/owner will know your account name, the amount you have pledged, and the reward you have selected. Creators never receive sponsors’ credit card details or other payment information. When a campaign you’ve sponsored is completed, the creator will receive the email address associated with your GofortheGoal account. They may also send you a survey requesting information needed to provide your reward. (For instance, they may need your mailing address, or T-shirt size.) Any information you provide in such surveys will be received by the creator.
When you create an account, we create a basic profile page for you on GofortheGoal.ca, containing your account name, the date the account was created, and a list of projects you have sponsored or launched. Whenever your account name appears on the site (for instance, when you post comments, send messages, or back projects), people can click your account name to see your profile. The profile is not searchable on GofortheGoal or via search engines like Google.
Here are some of the things that will be publicly viewable on your profile, or elsewhere on the site: the account name, and the date it was created, any information you choose to add to your profile (like a picture, bio, or your location, website and social media accounts), campaigns you've sponsored (but not pledge amounts or rewards chosen), campaigns you've launched, any comments you’ve posted on the Site, if you have "Liked" a campaign update.
