Your use of the Site indicates that you have read and accepted our Terms & Conditions
The following topics describe how The Mary Kay Foundation uses information collected on the Site.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The Mary Kay Foundation strives to provide our visitors with information relevant to their particular interests and goals. The information we gather helps us to better serve our purpose. We may ask you to provide us with demographic information, information regarding your interests or other PII.
Although parts of our Site do not require you to be a subscriber and you can use them without submitting any PII, some areas may require you to register and provide information that enables us to identify who you are. The Mary Kay Foundation generally collects PII with your specific knowledge and consent. Providing us with PII about yourself is voluntary, and you can always choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in some of the Site’s features. The Mary Kay Foundation also actively and passively gathers, analyzes, and/or stores PII and other information through various other sources and methods, including without limitation, online and mobile tracking gathered when you visit the Site through mechanisms that identify site usage, browser types, IP addresses, location information, and other usage information as set forth below.
Site/Ambassador/Donation Registration Forms
The Mary Kay Foundation’s Site forms may require users to give us contact information (such as name, phone number and e-mail address), payment details (such as your credit card information and billing address), and demographic information. Unless you opt out, The Mary Kay Foundation may use visitor contact information from the registration forms to send the user information about The Mary Kay Foundation for direct marketing purposes. The contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary.
Information that you provide to us by filling out online forms is located on a secure server. We have put into effect procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online and we take steps to keep that data confidential.
Information regarding method of payment is collected and used solely to process any donations. [We do not directly collect or store any credit card information submitted through the Site.] Payment information is collected and stored through our PCI-compliant third-party payment processor, Blackbaud Payment Service
. To understand the privacy practices of Blackbaud Payment Service
When your computer or mobile device contacts our web servers (for example, when you visit this Site, or view an HTML e-mail), our web servers automatically collect usage information. Such usage information includes information about how our visitors use and navigate our Site. It can include the number and frequency of visitors to each page and the length of their stays, browser type, referrer data that identifies the web page visited prior and subsequent to visiting our Site, and IP addresses. We also may determine the applicable technology available in order to serve you the most appropriate version of the Site, a web page, e-mail, advertising or promotional announcement or similar service. This information is used to analyze and improve this Site and to provide you with a more fulfilling and relevant experience.
USE OF IP ADDRESSES AND COOKIES
Like many organizations with an online presence, The Mary Kay Foundation receives standard tracking data from site users. Information from your browser, including your IP address and the page you visited, is recorded in our Site server logs. This data is analyzed internally to determine how to best provide information to visitors to our Site. The Mary Kay Foundation uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Site, including ensuring that the Site displays the most relevant content to you. We may associate your IP address with the PII you provide.
Third-Party Tracking and Do Not Track
The Site may make chat rooms, forums, e-mail lists and message boards available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your PII. Although The Mary Kay Foundation tries to protect your PII when you are using these public forums, The Mary Kay Foundation cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to The Mary Kay Foundation in the course of using any one or more of these areas, and you do so at your own risk.
- Third parties providing services on our behalf: We may engage third parties to perform services in connection with the operation of our business. Examples of these services include: (a) content providers and technology plug-ins (including third-party video and other media players); (b) product customization, (c) marketing and promotional material distribution, (d) Web site evaluation, (e) data collection, storage, management, analysis and, where applicable, cleansing, (f) payment processing service providers, and (g) any other services designed to assist us in achieving our mission. These third parties may have access to this Site’s user information, including PII, to the extent it is needed to perform their duties and functions.
- Site Security: We may release information about our users, including PII, when legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation or to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our Site and applicable laws. We may also disclose such user information whenever we believe disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of The Mary Kay Foundation, or any of our respective affiliates, business partners, customers or others.
- Aggregate Information: We may disclose non-identifying, aggregated user statistics to third parties for a variety of purposes, including describing our services to prospective partners and other third parties.

The Mary Kay Foundation recognizes how important your privacy is to you. We use contact data to send information about The Mary Kay Foundation in the form of physical and electronic mailings. If you choose not to receive future mailings, you may opt-out at any time by contacting The Mary Kay Foundation at [email protected]
, by calling 1-877-MKCARES, or by clicking on the “unsubscribe” hyperlink contained in promotional emails we send you. Because customer lists often are prepared well in advance of an offering (sometimes a few months before the offer is made), you may continue to receive some offers after you send us a request not to use your information for specified marketing purposes. Please be aware that we will process your request as quickly as we reasonably can, but it may not be possible to update our systems immediately. We appreciate your patience and understanding in giving us time to carry out your request. In addition, you should be aware that it is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases without some residual data because of backups and other reasons.
Site users may request access to, review or modify their PII maintained by The Mary Kay Foundation by contacting us at [email protected]
This Site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under The Mary Kay Foundation’s control. However, no Web site, internet transmission, computer system or wireless connection is completely secure and The Mary Kay Foundation cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. Your use of the Site is at your own risk.
We do not collect or maintain any information from those we know are younger than age 18, and no part of our Site is designed to attract anyone under 18. In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule, if we become aware that PII of an individual under 13 has been collected through the Site we will promptly take steps to delete such information. If you believe that we have collected PII from an individual under the age of 13, please contact us at [email protected]
YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
Under California law, a California resident with whom The Mary Kay Foundation has an established relationship has the right to request certain information with respect to the types of personal information The Mary Kay Foundation has shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes (if any), and the identities of those third parties, within the immediately preceding calendar year, subject to certain exceptions. In response to a written request, The Mary Kay Foundation is allowed to provide a cost-free means to opt-out of such sharing.
Since The Mary Kay Foundation does not provide your PII to third parties for their direct marketing purposes, it is not necessary for us to establish this procedure; however, if you do not want The Mary Kay Foundation to use your PII to provide information about our programs, please follow the cost-free opt-out procedures in this policy.
