Your privacy is critically important to us. At Big Day Clothing Exchange, we have a few fundamental principles:

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of one of our services.

In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

We acknowledge and respect your right to control your personal information.

Below is our privacy policy, which incorporates these goals.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting the personal information you have shared with us, please contact our support team at AndrewS@BigDayClothing.org.

Big Day Clothing Exchange currently operates one website (BigDayClothing.org). It is Big Day Clothing Exchange’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

The information we collect from these websites may be shared with our local Big Day Clothing Exchange affiliates (“Affiliate Organizations”), when they are set up. What we say below is true and binding for both Big Day Clothing Exchange and its Affiliate Organizations, and the promises we make below are true against both Big Day Clothing Exchange and our Affiliate Organizations.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Big Day Clothing Exchange 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. Big Day Clothing Exchange’ purpose in collecting this technical information is to better understand how Big Day Clothing Exchange’ visitors use its website.

Big Day Clothing Exchange 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.  Big Day Clothing Exchange only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses the personal information as described below.

Gathering and Use of Personal Information

Certain visitors to Big Day Clothing Exchange’ websites choose to interact with Big Day Clothing Exchange in ways that require Big Day Clothing Exchange to gather personal information. The amount and type of information that Big Day Clothing Exchange gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at BigDayClothing.org  to provide their full name, physical address and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Big Day Clothing Exchange – by donating, for example – are asked to provide additional information, such as credit card information required to process the donations. In each case, Big Day Clothing Exchange collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Big Day Clothing Exchange.

Big Day Clothing Exchange 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Big Day Clothing Exchange may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Big Day Clothing Exchange may monitor the most popular page on BigDayClothing.org. Big Day Clothing Exchange may display this aggregated information publicly or provide it to others. However, Big Day Clothing Exchange does not disclose personal information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personal Information

Big Day Clothing Exchange 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 Big Day Clothing Exchange’ behalf or to provide services available at Big Day Clothing Exchange websites, and (ii) maintain privacy and security measures that reflect the importance of your personal information.

Big Day Clothing Exchange will not rent or sell personal information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and Affiliated Organizations, as described above, Big Day Clothing Exchange discloses personal information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Big Day Clothing Exchange believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Big Day Clothing Exchange, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of our BigDayClothing.org website and have supplied your email address, Big Day Clothing Exchange may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Big Day Clothing Exchange and our services. If you would not like to receive these emails, please contact us at AndrewS@BigDayClothing.org or click the “unsubscribe” link in our emails.  If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Big Day Clothing Exchange takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of personal information.

Big Day Clothing Exchange endeavors to protect your privacy with utmost care.  We encourage you to contact us with any concerns.

Cross-Border Transfers

Big Day Clothing Exchange 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 Big Day Clothing Exchange, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Big Day Clothing Exchange goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.
