Policy last updated: 9th July 2020
Monetree is a web platform that allows creators to accept support from their audience and share access to their exclusive content.
Like most website operators, Monetree collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Monetree's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Monetree's visitors use its website. From time to time, Monetree may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Monetree also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on member posts. Monetree only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Monetree's websites choose to interact with Monetree in ways that require Monetree to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Monetree gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.
For those who sign up for a profile at https://monetree.com/ we might collect the following information:
- Contact information such as name and email address either entered directly or transmitted via a social sign up facility such as ‘sign up with Google’ or ‘sign up with Facebook’,
- Information you include in your Monetree profile and any updates you make to your profile including but not limited to text updates, images, hashtags and links to third party websites, social media platforms or content,

Under GDPR we will ensure that any personally identifiable information is processed lawfully, fairly, and transparently without adversely affecting your rights.
Monetree is not a payment processor, Monetree facilitates payments between users of the platform via third party payment providers such as Stripe . We recommend you read the privacy policies of these two providers before using our platform:
To make a payment to a creator on Monetree, you have to provide our payment processor (Stripe) with your payment information. They provide us with a token that represents your account, your card’s expiration date, card type and the last four digits of your credit card. If you provide them with a name and email address then they also provide us with that information.
We collect and process information about the creators you support, the level at which you support them and how often you support them.
