DoneGood’s whole thing is helping you find companies doing good in the world—so we work really hard to make sure we’re one of those good companies ourselves. That means paying workers well and preserving the environment, of course. But it also includes transparency and taking the privacy of individuals and businesses in the DoneGood community very seriously, and making sure you remain in control of your own information at all times.
Thanks, the DoneGood Team

This policy will notify you of the following:
- What choices are available to you regarding the use and public display of your data.
- The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
- How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
- What information is transmitted from you in using the app, website, and browser extension, how it is used and with whom it may and may not be shared.
This policy only applies to information provided through:
- The DoneGood app, website and browser extension
- In E-mail or other electronic messages between you and DoneGood
This policy does not apply to information collected offline or through other means, including on any other website or application operated by any third party (including any businesses listed on DoneGood, DoneGood affiliates, partner organizations, advertisers, non-profit organizations or any other websites accessed through the DoneGood app, website or browser extension).
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
The important stuff:
We do NOT sell your contact information (such as your name, phone number, and email address) to anyone without your consent.
We will not share any personally identifiable information with any third party outside of our organization without your consent, other than as necessary to fulfill a request or inquiry from you. We will use your personal information to serve you to the best of our ability and/or to respond to you regarding a reason you have contacted us.
We collect aggregate, anonymous data on the overall usage of the DoneGood app, website and browser extension (for example, total clicks on particular features of the extension or app, or total clicks on a particular DoneGood-approved company, etc.)to demonstrate the impact the DoneGood community as a whole is making, and to help us learn what our user community may like most or find most useful about our products so we can make them better. This kind of data does not identify you personally. So for example, we may see that in a given week 122 DoneGood browser extension users went to a particular big-name company website but then clicked over to a particular DoneGood-approved company website instead (hell yeah!), but we don't know that you were one of those 122.
We also collect aggregate, anonymized data through Google Analytics on overall extension and website usage including things like which business categories, features, and buttons on our app, extension and website are being clicked on, and what search terms are being searched for on our website (again this data is not collected in a way that can identify you individually) so we can continue to improve our products and make sure we are adapting to the preferences of our user community. We also see data on our overall user community’s basic demographic information (such as age and gender).
And we may collect data on search terms executed on Amazon, as well as on Google only if the search executed produces a result that is the website of a DoneGood-approved company or a company that provides similar products or services similar to a DoneGood-approved company (in other words, we don’t see data on search results not related to online shopping). This helps us continue to improve our algorithms so that when users execute shopping-related searches (and only shopping related searches) the DoneGood extension provides the most accurate and relevant suggestions for alternative socially responsible companies possible. Again, this data is not personally identifiable so searches executed cannot be connected to an individual user.
And we collect data on search terms executed on Amazon, and on searches executed on Google only if the search executed produces a result that is the website of a DoneGood-approved brand or a company that provides similar products or services to a DoneGood-approved company. This helps us continue to improve our algorithms so that when users search for products or services offered by DoneGood brands, the extension provides the most accurate and relevant suggestions possible for alternative socially responsible companies. Again, this data is not personally identifiable so searches executed cannot be connected to an individual user.
Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email or other channels in the future to tell you about upcoming events and activities, discounts at businesses, new products or services, or other matters. We hope these messages are useful and interesting, and even fun! However, you may opt out of any future contact from us at any time.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You can always unsubscribe from future emails or other communications from us by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through other email addresses or links provided on our app, website, browser extension or in email communications.

In order to use all features of the DoneGood app, website, and browser extension a user may need to sign-in to DoneGood. The features that require registration are only those that are specific to each user and therefore necessarily must have a personal sign in, such as a personal profile page, ratings of businesses (we require sign-in to rate businesses because we don’t want anonymous business ratings, as they tend to be less helpful and less accurate, and are more likely to be spam, be vulgar, or otherwise not be useful ratings) and earning discounts (we need to know it’s you that got the discount you may have earned). During registration, a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address), or register through a social media site such as Facebook. Third-party social media platforms such as Facebook require different and specific information when you login through their platform. Though we specify clearly what information is being used from your social media profiles, the privacy policies of the third party governs the specific data transactions in those instances. The information provided during registration may be used to contact you. Again, you can always opt out of any contact by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We take security seriously and work hard to protect your information. However, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. By using the DoneGood app, website or browser extension you acknowledge that online activity inherently puts individuals at risk of hackers and other security breaches, and you agree that you are using our services at your own risk.
Only employees who need your information to perform a specific job (for example, customer service or data management) will be granted access to personally identifiable information. All other staff members can only access your data in an anonymized internal format (for example, your passwords and private login information are internally encrypted so as to assure maximum privacy).
DoneGood is intended for general audiences and is not directed to children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect personal information from any children under 13. If you become aware that a child has provided us with personal information without parental consent, please contact us at email@example.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information without parental consent, we will take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account.
We may share or sell aggregated app, website and browser extension usage information (including but not limited to overall app and web traffic volumes and other data, data on features and resources accessed through the app, website, and browser extension, websites visited while using the extension, app and website, that are related to DoneGood usage, etc); information about your computer, phone, internet connection, operating system or browser type; and/or aggregated demographic information (based on meta data) with our partner organizations, advertisers or others. This information is not linked to any personal information that can identify you or any individual person by name.
Usage of a cookie on our site is not linked to any personally identifiable information. It may be possible to disable some (but possibly not all) cookies through your device or browser settings. Doing so may affect some of the functionality of the app, website or browser extension, and, may prevent DoneGood from earning a commission on your purchase from one of our partner companies (which hurts our ability to remain in business, and continue offering our service to all DoneGood users for free). The method for disabling cookies may vary by device and browser, but can usually be found in preferences or settings menus.
