When a user backs a project, the project’s Project Creator will be advised of the user's account name, the amount pledged, and the reward that they have selected.
If a project you have backed is successfully funded, the Project Creator will receive the backer's email address. The Project Creator may then send the backer a questionnaire requesting the information needed to provide the reward.
Project Creators are authorized to appoint collaborators to help manage their project. These collaborators may also have access to the information available to Project Creators (i.e. the backers’ names, email addresses, pledge amounts, reward selection, and survey responses). Both Project Creators and collaborators are required to treat backers’ personal information with care and respect.
