What’s Only Shared with Creators
When you back a campaign, the campaign’s creator will know your account name, the amount you have donated, and the email address associated with your Fundclock account. Creators never receive backers’ credit card details or other payment information.
When you create an account, we create a basic profile page for you on fundclock, containing your account name, the date the account was created, and a list of projects you have backed or launched. Whenever your account name appears on the site (for instance, when you post comments, send messages, or back campaigns), people can click your account name to see your profile. The profile is not searchable on Fundclock or via search engines like Google. Here are some of the things that will be publicly viewable on your profile, or elsewhere on the site:
•the account name, and the date it was created
•any information you choose to add to your profile (like a picture, bio, or your location)
•campaigns you’ve backed
•campaigns you’ve launched
•any comments you’ve posted on the Site
•if you have “Liked” a campaign update
Please note that each campaign page lists the community of users who have backed the project.
