Privacy Policy

We pledge to respect your privacy, to be transparent about our data practices, to keep your data safe, to never sell your personal data, and to only collect data that helps us improve our products and services.
This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which FASHIONING-CHANGE collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each, a "User") of the website and App ("Site"). This privacy policy applies to the Site and all programs, products and services offered by FASHIONING-CHANGE.

Sharing your personal information
FASHIONING-CHANGE, staff and partner organizations do not sell, trade or rent Users' personal identification information to others. We may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding visitors and users with our business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers for the purposes outlined above. We may use third-party service providers to help us operate our business and the Site or administer activities on our behalf, such as sending out newsletters or surveys. We may share your information with these third parties for those limited purposes provided that you have not opted out of being a subscriber.

Mailing Lists
A mailing list can be created in a number of ways, including by importing contacts, such as through csv or directly from your email client. The mailing lists are stored on a secure FASHIONING-CHANGE server. FASHIONING-CHANGE does not, under any circumstances, sell the mailing lists. Only authorized employees have access to view mailing lists.

How we use collected information
FASHIONING-CHANGE may collect and use Users personal information for the following purposes:

  • To personalize user experience:
    We may use information in the aggregate to understand how our Users as a group use the services and resources provided on our Site.
  • To process payments:
    We may use the information Users provide about themselves when placing an order only to provide service to that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to provide the service.
  • To send periodic emails:
    We may use the email address to send User information and updates pertaining to their order. It may also be used to respond to their inquiries, questions, and/or other requests. We also use the information you provide to send periodic emails about our programs, website updates, new materials and other items of interest. Outside parties do not have access to any of your data except to the extent necessary to complete an online order, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose. If at any time the User would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email or User may contact us via our Site.
  • To analyze responses to surveys:
    We analyze responses to surveys for research purposes only, and no individual identifying information is collected.

Data Collected for and by the Users
FASHIONING-CHANGE has no direct relationship with the respondents or any person other than the User and for that reason, the Users are responsible for making sure they have the appropriate permission for FASHIONING-CHANGE to collect and process information about their respondents. FASHIONING-CHANGE may transfer personal information of the Users or their respondents to companies that help FASHIONING-CHANGE promote, provide, or support their services and products.
All Service Providers enter into a contract with FASHIONING-CHANGE that protects personal information and restricts their use of any personal information consistent with this policy. As part of their services, FASHIONING-CHANGE may use and incorporate into features information the users have provided, we have collected from you, or we have collected about respondents.
If you are a respondent and no longer want to be contacted by one of our Users, please unsubscribe directly from that User's newsletter or contact the User directly to update or delete your data.
FASHIONING-CHANGE will retain personal information they process on behalf of their Users for as long as needed to provide their services and products or to comply with their legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent abuse, and enforce our agreements.

Content of Email Invitations
When a User sends an email invitation, it bounces from server to server as it crosses the Internet. Along the way, server administrators can read what users send. Email was not built for confidential information. Please do not use FASHIONING-CHANGE to send confidential information.
Sometimes FASHIONING-CHANGE reviews the content of User's email invitations to make sure they comply with the Terms of Use. To improve that process, FASHIONING-CHANGE has software that helps FASHIONING-CHANGE to find email invitations that may violate the terms.
The employees or independent contractors may review those particular email invitations. This initiative benefits all Users who comply with the Terms of Use because it reduces the amount of spam being sent through the servers and helps FASHIONING-CHANGE maintain high deliverability.

How does FASHIONING-CHANGE keep my data safe?
FASHIONING-CHANGE uses a combination of technical and administrative security controls to maintain the security of your data
We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our Site.
