Apparel Foundation strives to protect the personal information given to us by our customers, website visitors and information included in our mailing lists.
COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION
Apparel Foundation collects personal data that you voluntarily provide to us. This might include your name, the name of your business, your address, phone number, e-mail address and other similar information that we need to provide services to our customers. We also analyze our website logs to constantly improve the value of our website to our visitors. This includes page views, unique views, unique visitors, repeated visitors, frequency of visits, and peak volume traffic periods. In our use of this service we do not gather, request, record, require, collect, or track any internet users’ personal identifiable information. Unless required by law, we retain personal information only for as long as necessary to allow us to accomplish the purposes for which we collect it.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
Apparel Foundation does not sell, rent, loan, trade or lease personal information shared to our representatives, collected on our website or included in our email lists to any third party. We will only use the personal information that you provide for the reason that you provided it to us. For example, if you provide us with a shipping address we may use that personal information to create a shipping label. We may also share certain personal information with vendors or service providers that we use to service its customers. For example, a shipping address may be shared with the carrier used to deliver the package to you. We may also share your personal information with vendors that help us provide you with services and help us provide you with an excellent customer experience. Apparel Foundation’s third party vendors only have access to your personal data for a short period of time and is deleted after a reasonable period of time. Visitor comments may also be checked through an automated spam detection service.
INFORMATION UPDATES AND OPTING OUT
Information updates to your account or changes to your personal information will be made at your request. Apparel Foundation makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that all data, including your personal information, is accurate. You can also update your account details yourself by logging into your account. We encourage our customers to keep their account, addresses and contacting details accurate and up-to-date for a smoother shopping experience. You may also contact us to close your account at any time. Please note that personal information may be retained after you close your account to allow us to meet our obligations to you, resolve problems and meet applicable legal requirements. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR DATA
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
European Union data subjects have certain rights related to personal information under the EU General Data Protection Regulation. If you qualify, it is your right to request (a) access to your personal information; (b) data correction to your personal information is incorrect or incomplete; (c) object to Apparel Foundation’s use of your personal information because there is a strong legitimate reason that we should not process your personal information that is unique to you; or (d) Apparel Foundation’s deletion of your personal information. If you provided us with consent related to your personal data, you can withdraw that consent at any time. You may also unsubscribe from promotional and marketing e-mails at any time by contacting us.
We take precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction. Please note that our data security precautions are not a guarantee that that data will not be subject to unauthorized access, disclosure or destruction if our safety precautions are breached. Electronic disclosure of personal information may not always be secure or error free and Apparel Foundation is not responsible for disclosures that happen due to transmission errors or unauthorized interception of electronic communication. We may reach out to you electronically if we discover a data security breach. Sharing personal information with Apparel Foundation or using apparelfoundation.com is your agreement that we can contact you electronically to share information related to privacy and information on data security so that you can take steps to protect your information.
