In connection with your use of the Website, we collect non-personally identifiable information such as IP addresses, device and browser information (e.g. types of web browsers and operating systems used) and usage statistics. We may also send “cookies” to your computer. A “cookie” is a small text file sent to your computer and stored on its hard drive that helps us recognize repeat visitors, facilitate each visitor’s ongoing access to and use of our site, and track usage behavior. We use “cookies” and collect other non-personally identifiable information to enhance your browsing experience.

We may also collect personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, address, email address and telephone number. GoL does not collect personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. This information is only used by GoL to contact you with messages that are related to your interest in the Grads of Life initiative. Other privacy practices may apply to information you provide to us through other channels other than the Website.

How GoL Uses Your Information

GoL may use your information (i) to process and respond to inquiries; (ii) for the purposes for which you provided the information; and (iii) to improve the content and navigability of the Website.

Information Sharing with Third Parties

GoL may disclose information to another entity: i) for purposes of outsourcing one or more of the functions described in the previous section; ii) for other purposes disclosed at or before the time the information is collected. We will also share your information when legally required to do so. GoL does not sell, rent, trade, or otherwise share mailing lists or database information.

Our commitment to data security

The security and confidentiality of personally identifiable information about you is our priority. We protect this information by maintaining physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that meet applicable law. When we use other companies to provide services for us, we require them to protect the confidentiality of personal information they receive.

While no data transmission over the Internet, wireless networks or data storage systems is guaranteed to be 100% secure, we continually evaluate and update our security measures. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us at info@gradsoflife.org.
