If you believe that material located on or linked to by WFP violates your copyright, you are encouraged to notify WFP in accordance with Women for Progress Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) Policy by sending an email to email@example.com. WFP will respond to all such notices, including as required or appropriate by removing the infringing material or disabling all links to the infringing material.

In no event will WFP, or its suppliers or licensors, be liable with respect to any subject matter of this agreement under any contract, negligence, strict liability or other legal or equitable theory for: (i) any special, incidental or consequential damages; (ii) the cost of procurement for substitute products or services; (iii) interruption of use or loss or corruption of data; or (iv) any amounts that exceed the fees paid by you to WFP under this agreement during the twelve (12) month period prior to the cause of action. WFP shall have no liability for any failure or delay due to matters beyond its reasonable control. The foregoing shall not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
11. General Representation and Warranty
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless WFP, its contractors, and its licensors, and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents from and against any and all claims and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, arising out of your use of the Website, including but not limited to your violation of this Agreement.
13. Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
By agreeing to these terms and conditions, you also agree to arbitrate any and all claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (a “Claim”) pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act and subject to the terms below. You and WFP agree that we intend that this Section 13 satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act, and further agree that notwithstanding any other provision of the Terms, the Federal Arbitration Act shall govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
In the event of a Claim, you and WFP agree to binding alternative dispute resolution pursuant to the then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), however titled (“AAA Rules”).
ARBITRATION OF YOUR CLAIM IS MANDATORY AND BINDING. NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE THAT CLAIM THROUGH A COURT. IN ARBITRATION, NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OR TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED FOR IN THE AAA RULES. EITHER PARTY MAY SUBMIT MOTIONS TO COMPEL ARBITRATION IN ITS PREFERRED COURT AND THE PARTIES AGREEMENT TO SUBMIT TO JURISDICTION IN THAT COURT. ENFORCEMENT OF ANY ARBITRAL AWARD CAN BE BROUGHT IN ANY COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION.
NO CLASS ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR JOINDER OR CONSOLIDATION OF ANY CLAIM WITH A CLAIM OF ANOTHER PERSON OR CLASS OF CLAIMANTS SHALL BE PERMITTED.
All parties to the arbitration will have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or other advocate of their choosing. The arbitration proceeding will be held in Bergen County, New Jersey, unless you elect to proceed with a telephonic hearing or unless you and WFP agree to an alternative location. WFP will pay the initial filing fee for any arbitration, but the parties each shall otherwise bear their respective fees and expenses except as may be provided in the AAA Rules.
For a copy of the AAA Rules, to file a claim or for other information about the AAA, contact AAA, at 335 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10017 or at www.adr.org.
All determinations as to the scope, interpretation, enforceability and validity of this Agreement shall be made exclusively by the arbitrator, which award shall be binding and final. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
This arbitration provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement. If any portion of this arbitration provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in force.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between WFP and you concerning the subject matter hereof, and may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of WFP, or by the posting by WFP of a revised version. Except to the extent applicable law, if any, provides otherwise, this Agreement and any access to or use of the Website will be governed by the laws of the New Jersey, excluding its conflict of law provisions, and the proper venue for any disputes arising out of or relating to any of the same will be the state and federal courts. If any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of this Agreement or any breach thereof, in any one instance, will not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof. You may assign your rights under this Agreement to any party that consents to, and agrees to be bound by, its terms and conditions; WFP may assign its rights under this Agreement without condition. This Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.

Women for Progress (“WFP,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) operates www.womenforprogress.org and may operate other websites (the “Website”). It is WFP’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our Website.
1. Information We Collect and How We Collect It
a. Information You Provide to Us
Certain visitors to our Website choose to interact with WFP in ways that require us to gather personal information. The amount and type of information that WFP gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our subscription services at www.womenforprogress.org to provide contact information such as an email address.
Those who engage in transactions with WFP are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, WFP collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with WFP. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Website-related activities.
b. Information We Collect Automatically
Like most website operators, WFP may automatically collect certain information about you, including:
• Device Information: WFP also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on womenforprogress.org blogs/sites. Women for Progress only discloses logged-in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
• Additional Information: Non-personally-identifying information of the sort 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. WFP’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how Women for Progress visitors use its website. From time to time, WFP may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
2. How We Use Information
The purposes for which we may use your Personal Information include:
- To respond to your questions, comments and requests;
- For internal business purposes, such as auditing, data analytics and research to create, develop, operate, deliver and improve our Website, services and communications;
- To communicate with you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with WFP and our products
- To provide you with purchase and donation confirmations;
- To protect and defend our rights and property, including by way of legal proceedings, and to comply with regulatory requirements.
3. Sharing of Information
We may share your Personal Information in a limited number of circumstances, including:
- To Protect Our Interests & Comply with the Law: It may be necessary – due to applicable law, legal process or litigation – for us to disclose your Personal Information, e.g., to government or law enforcement authorities.
- Business Transfers: If WFP, or substantially all of its assets, are acquired, or in the unlikely event that WFP goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of WFP may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
- Other Parties Where We Believe Necessary or Appropriate: We may also disclose your information (i) where we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation or prosecution of suspected or actual illegal activity; or (ii) in the good faith belief that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable.
We may collect, use and disclose anonymized information (e.g., statistical information about the behavior of visitors to our websites) in any manner permitted by applicable law.
4. Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
WFP takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information. You should be aware, however, that no transmission of data over the Internet is 100% secure and that unauthorized third parties may unlawfully intercept or access your information. You provide us with information at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.
Our Website is not directed to minors. WFP does not knowingly solicit, collect, use or disclose personal information from children under 13 years of age. If we become aware that we have knowingly collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete such information from our records.
