Like most website operators, Dress for Success collects information 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. Dress for Success’ purpose in collecting this technical information is to better understand how Dress for Success’ visitors use its website.
Dress for Success also collects personal information that may directly or indirectly identify you, like your Internet Protocol (IP) address, full name, and your email address if you create an account with us.

Gathering and Use of Personal Information
Certain visitors to Dress for Success’ websites choose to interact with Dress for Success in ways that require Dress for Success to gather personal information.

For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at dressforsuccess.org to provide their full name, physical address and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Dress for Success – by donating, for example – are asked to provide additional information, such as credit card information required to process the donations. In each case, Dress for Success collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Dress for Success.
Dress for Success does not disclose personal information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personal information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
When you share your information with us or make a donation, we assume that means that you would like to stay engaged with our organization. If, however, you do not engage with us over the course of six years, we will delete your information in order to respect your privacy.

Protection of Certain Personal Information
Dress for Success discloses personal information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to access that information in order to process it on Dress for Success’ behalf or to provide services available at Dress for Success websites, and (ii) maintain privacy and security measures that reflect the importance of your personal information.

Dress for Success is a global network. Any information you share with us, or that we otherwise collect from you, is shared only with the local Affiliated Organization through which you register. Your personal data may be transferred out of the country in which you live. Users in the European Union should know that their data will be transferred to countries that have not been deemed to provide adequate safeguards under the General Data Protection Regulation. The absence of adequate safeguards means that the European Union has not determined that the countries to which your data is being transferred provide adequate protections for your personal data, including the right to pursue legal action for privacy-related matters. We will inform you that your personal information may be transferred out of the EU and we will ask for your consent to do so before we collect any information that may be transferred.
If Dress for Success, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Dress for Success goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Dress for Success may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
For Residents of the EU
Information collected through our website is accessible to Dress for Success, which is located in the United States, and its Affiliated Organizations regardless of jurisdiction. This means that your data may be transferred to another country, including the United States and other countries that have not been identified as having adequate protections for transfers under the GDPR.
Please note that we have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach. We will notify you and any applicable government authority of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
Additionally, you have certain rights regarding your personal information under the GDPR. These include:
Our services are not directed at individuals under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us personal information without parental consent, we will delete such information from our files.
