Privacy Policy ๐Ÿ”

Intro

“We have updated our Privacy Policy to reflect new laws and regulations, including updates to California law. We have also made changes to provide more clarity in our policies so that you can understand how we process your information and what rights you have under privacy and data protection laws.

Voluntouring.org is a platform for users to find volunteering opportunities or advertise their own volunteer projects to recruit volunteers. It is not a registered business and does not have a physical office. Those who work to maintain the website are volunteers, friends, or occasional helpers.

We may also collect information about how you use our Services, such as the pages you visit, the features you use, and the time spent on those pages and features.
  • Information from third parties: We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, if you access our Services through a third-party login such as Facebook, we may receive information about your account and friends on that service.
