How Good+Foundation Uses Personal Information Collected Online and Offline
Unless you otherwise consent, we will use your personal information only for the purpose for which it is submitted, such as to reply to your inquiries, to provide you with information you request or to prepare tax notifications. On the Site, at events, or if you volunteer with us at one of our two warehouses, there is an option to sign up to receive Good+Foundation's newsletter and be on a mailing list to receive information about other Good+Foundation programs and events. At any time, you can add or remove your name from the Good+Foundation mailing list by contacting us at [email protected] or call at (212) 736-1777.

We will not sell, share or rent donor information collected online or offline at volunteer or other events. However, Good+Foundation, in its sole discretion, as it believes necessary or appropriate, may release personal information under the following circumstances:
- If required by law (for example, a subpoena) or regulation or requested by a government agency;
- If our records indicate a company may be engaged in fraudulent activity or other deceptive practices that a governmental agency should be made aware of;
- To appropriate governmental authorities, where warranted by a company’s failure to participate in the advertising self-regulatory process or where a company fails to honor the recommendations of the National Advertising Division, Children’s Advertising Review Unit or the National Advertising Review Board; or
- To appropriate persons, where your communication suggests possible harm to others.
