Starting off in their disclosure statement, they say that “user information may be part of transferred assets” if GoFundMe would sell/buy businesses or assets. I never want my information to be labeled or identified as a business asset because it’s not. My information is my asset, not GoFundMe’s.
This paragraph states that GoFundMe provides access to or shares your information with companies so that these companies can perform services for GoFundMe. I know this isn’t entirely uncommon, but when I give my information to GoFundMe, I don’t expect them to go off and share it with others. I tried to dig for a list of these companies, but couldn’t find a full and complete list.
This next section says that if you provide them unsolicited information, you are granting them an “irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, worldwide license to use, modify, prepare derivative works, publish, distribute and sublicense the Unsolicited Information”. That is kinda messed up—knowing that if you reach out to them with an idea, they could simply take it and run without giving you credit or compensation!
Finally, they do indicate that you can access all the information they currently have on you upon request. If I were to hazard a guess, it would likely be time-consuming and expensive to do this, and it appears that they don’t make revoking your consent any easier.
