Privacy Policy

Who we are

The Fashion Law Institute is a nonprofit organization tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our website address is: https://fashionlawinstitute.com.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

As with most websites, our webhost’s servers automatically receive information from your web browser when you visit the site, including your IP address and location. We also collect information pertinent to events via registration forms, such as name, email address, and organizational affiliation. For payments made via these forms, credit card information is collected by third party providers (Stripe and PayPal) through encrypted communication; we do not receive the user’s credit card information.

Our clinic intake and volunteer forms request more information, tailored to providing clients with the best possible assistance for their particular needs.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

In reviewing the site, we have confirmed that our form provider, WPForms, uses cookies to hold submitted user information while filling out forms, and installed analytics providers also use cookies to document visits. WP Forms privacy policy can be found at https://wpforms.com/privacy-policy/.

Analytics

Google Analytics and Jetpack are connected to the site via WordPress, and they automatically collect non-personally-identifying data for all visitors to the site. We do not share the data available to us with anyone; in fact, we do not look at this information ourselves outside of aggregate data, such as number of visitors, pages visited, and duration. This type of aggregate data helps us figure out how often visitors engage with the site so that we can be more useful to them.

Google’s privacy policy is available at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/. Jetpack’s privacy policy is available at https://jetpack.com/support/privacy/. The specific user location cannot be traced because we use the Google Analytics “anonymize IP” setting which sets the last digits of the IP address to 0, therefore anonymizing the end-user before the processing and storage begins.

Data sharing

We do not share your data with anyone outside of the Fashion Law Institute. If we have to share any information to government authorities for legal reasons, we’ll note that here.

Data security

Our host provider, Dreamhost, monitors our virtual private server for security issues; if one is found, it isolates the suspect code and sends a notice of the issue. We also have real-time security monitoring plug-ins in our WordPress installation.

Retaining, deleting, and retrieving your data

Registration information is permanently retained, and registrants may request that this information be erased from your records or sent to you. To have your data deleted or delivered, please email us at info@fashionlawinstitute.com
