2. Nature of our website
2.1 Our Website provides an online directory of charitable organisations from around the world ('Services'). Our website aims to help donors or supporters of local development initiatives make informed decisions and enables charities and social organisations to demonstrate their commitment to proper stewardship by, among other things, evaluating and publishing key data through a searchable database of information that FieldWorks and its associates have collected, compiled, and assembled about organisations (the ‘FieldWorks Database’).
2.2 We provide Visitors, Funders, and Member Users with access to the Services described in this Agreement.
2.2.1 Visitors. As the term implies, Visitors are users that do not register with us, but wish to poke around and see what our Services offer. No login is required for Visitors. Visitors can:
View all publicly-available content including, without limitation, the FieldWorks Database.
Access and/or submit content to certain third-party applications for example, by making donations and writing reviews of organisations (the ‘Third-Party Applications’).
2.2.2 Funders. Funder Users may include (but are not limited to) grant-making bodies or bodies which provide specialised services relevant to our Members. Each Funder body is required to designate an official representative (‘Account Administrator) to manage its FieldWorks profile and may additionally grant access to other members of its team as ‘Authorised Users’. Funders can:
Create (limited to Account Administrator) or update (Account Administrator and Authorised Users) their organisation’s profile.
Update information about a Member with whom an established relationship exists, or link documentation generated in the course of a relationship with a Member.
Flag Members of interest for reference in their portfolio.
Leave comments on the Member’s page.
Update accountability and transparency data in the FieldWorks Database.
2.2.2 Members. Member Users represent charitable organisations and are their designated official representative to manage the organisation’s FieldWorks profile. Members can:
Create and update profiles on behalf of their own organisation.
View and contact other Members for the purpose of collaboration, learning, networking, or advocacy.
Provide accountability and transparency data in the FieldWorks Database.
Sign up to FieldWorks newsletters, alerts, and other notifications.

You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
You are responsible for all materials or text posted and activity that occurs under your account (‘Content’) (even when Content is posted by others).

Right to access: You can access your account information or make changes or updates at any time by going to your Dashboard. We do our best to keep your data accurate and up to date, to the extent that you provide us with the information we need to do so. If your data changes (for example, if you have a new email address), then you are responsible for notifying us of those changes.
Upon request, we will provide you with a copy of the information that we have. Users can submit the request to access a copy of their information by emailing with the subject title "Send me all of my data". For privacy and security, requests must come from the email address tied to your account.

If we shared your personal data with others, we will tell them about the correction where possible. If you ask us, and where possible and lawful to do so, we will also tell you with whom we shared your personal data so you can contact them directly.
Right to restrict processing: You may ask us to restrict or 'block' the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances, such as where you contest the accuracy of the data or object to us processing it (please read below for information on your “Right to object”). We will tell you before we lift any restriction on processing. If we shared your personal data with others, we will tell them about the restriction where possible. If you ask us, and where possible and lawful to do so, we will also tell you with whom we shared your personal data so you can contact them directly.

Right to object: You may ask us at any time to stop processing your personal data, and we will do so:
If we are processing your personal data for direct marketing.
Right to withdraw consent: If we rely on your consent to process your personal data you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time, but this will not affect any processing of your data that has already taken place.
Right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority: If you have a concern about our privacy practices, including the way we handled your personal data, you can report it to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) (details on how to do so can be found on the ICO's website) or other data protection authority that is authorised to hear those concerns.
In addition, when you create an account or profile on our Site, you can decide whether to make some of that information public or private. You can change your choices at any time using the “Edit my Profile” button on your Dashboard. Please note, however, that your preferences do not affect the disclosures to organisations you have expressly listed as current partners. So, for example, if you list an organisation as your current donor, then we may display your name on their profile regardless of your own profile settings. Likewise, if you contribute to an organisation, we may share your name and contact information with the nominated representative of that organisation. In each case we will give you the opportunity to tell us not to disclose your personal data, or publish it on the Website or in our annual report.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as long as needed to provide our services. We may also retain and use your personal data in order to comply with our contractual or legal obligations, audit requirements, resolve disputes, and prevent abuse.
