We may share private personal information with third parties when necessary to conduct business or complete a transaction, and we keep information we need for record-keeping, accounting, taxes, and other business purposes. (For example, if you contribute funds to help offset the costs of the Open Genealogy Data project, a third party such as PayPal or a credit card gateway or a bank would handle the transaction, and we would also have to keep records of the transaction for accounting and tax purposes).
Some of our services use location data from your browser or device (if you permit) and/or IP address geolocation databases. For example, we may attempt to allocate records for you to transcribe that are nearer to your location instead of from some random distant location. If you permit your location to be sent to us, we may use that to improve the IP address geolocation database / service. IP address alone does not personally identify you and we do not consider it to be private personal information that must be safe-guarded, as IP address geolocation databases are widely available.
