What Information Do We Collect
Seattle Goodwill collects personally identifiable information voluntarily submitted by you to the web site, whether via e-mail, through survey responses, employment or volunteer applications, through your purchase of a gift card, or through a posting on a bulletin board or chat room, which enables us to respond to requests for newsletters, distribute e-newsletters, process employment and volunteer applications and inquiries, accept donations, process gift card purchases and activations, and respond to requests for more information or assistance. Seattle Goodwill adheres to the highest standards of ethical practices in all of our operations and is dedicated to protecting the privacy of all visitors to our web site.
In addition to information that you voluntarily provide us, for each visitor to our Web page, our Web server automatically recognizes the visitor's IP address and logs the date, time, url address and user’s agent, but not the e-mail address (where possible). We also log the IP addresses of each visitor to our web site. We also aggregate information on what pages visitors access or visit and how a visitor may interact with our web site.

We occasionally use third-party agents, affiliates and partners to perform functions such as marketing, analytics, selling Seattle Goodwill products, accepting donations on behalf of Seattle Goodwill, providing customer service, etc., on our behalf. These entities have access to the personal information needed to perform their functions and are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of any personal information collected from the web site. They are restricted from using, selling, distributing or altering this data in any way other than to provide the requested services to the web site.
