Protecting your privacy is important to GrantMatch. This Policy explains how GrantMatch collects, uses, and discloses the personal information you may provide while using the GrantMatch web site and the Services provided on or through the web site (collectively, the “Site”).
Information Automatically Collected
Non-Identifiable Information – Like many other Web sites, the Site automatically collects certain non-identifiable information regarding Site users, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet Service Provider, the date and time you access the Site, the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to the Site, the operating system you are using, the sections of the Site you visit, the Site pages read and images viewed, and the content you download from the Site. GrantMatch uses this non-identifiable information for Site and system administration purposes and to improve the Site. GrantMatch may disclose the non-identifiable information to others and permanently archive it for future use.
Cookies – The Site uses “cookies”, a technology that installs information on a Site user’s computer to permit the Site to recognize future visits using that computer. Cookies enhance the convenience and use of the Site. For example, GrantMatch uses the information provided through cookies to recognize you as a previous user of the Site (so you do not have to enter your personal information every time), offer personalized Web page content and information for your use, track your activity at the Site to respond to your needs, and otherwise facilitate your Site experience. You may choose to decline cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may affect your ability to use certain features of the Site.
Personal Information Collected by GrantMatch
Personal Information Provided By You – During your use of the Site, you may be asked to voluntarily provide certain personal information such as your name, email address, postal address, and telephone number. It is always your choice whether or not to provide personal information. If you choose not to provide requested personal information, however, you may not be able to use certain features. GrantMatch may also keep a record of all correspondence with you.
Personal Information Collected From Third Parties – GrantMatch may collect certain personal information about you from external sources, including personal references, to the extent permitted by law. GrantMatch will use and disclose your personal information collected from such external sources in accordance with this Policy, as amended from time to time.
GrantMatch’s Use of Your Personal Information – GrantMatch may use your personal information to contact and correspond with you, to respond to your inquiries, to determine whether to grant access to certain special features of the Site, to comply with legal requirements and other purposes permitted or required by law. GrantMatch may develop a user profile for you. GrantMatch may also send to you, from time to time, email or other communications containing information about GrantMatch, and other matters (including third-party products or services or those of our affiliated companies) that GrantMatch believes will interest you. At any time you may ask GrantMatch to stop sending you email and other information by contacting our Privacy Manager or by clicking “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of such email. From time to time GrantMatch may also send you email containing important information regarding the Site or your account. You may not opt out of receiving such email.
Disclosure of Your Personal Information – GrantMatch may disclose your personal information in the following circumstances:
Disclosure to Service Providers – In order to provide the Site, GrantMatch must disclose some of your personal information to certain service providers including technical service providers. Before personal information is disclosed to a service provider, the service provider will agree with GrantMatch to protect the privacy of your personal information in a manner that is consistent with this Policy. If you do not wish GrantMatch to provide your personal information to those service providers, you may not use the Site because some of our Services may not be capable of being delivered.
Disclosure in Business Transfers – GrantMatch may be involved in the sale, transfer or reorganization of some or all of its business at some time in the future. As part of that sale, transfer or reorganization, GrantMatch may disclose your personal information to the acquiring organization, but will require the acquiring organization to agree to protect the privacy of your personal information in a manner that is consistent with this Policy.
Law Enforcement and Legal Disclosure – GrantMatch may disclose your personal information to a government institution that has asserted its lawful authority to obtain the information or where GrantMatch has reasonable grounds to believe the information could be useful in the investigation of unlawful activity, or to comply with a subpoena or warrant or an order made by a court, person or body with jurisdiction to compel the production of information. GrantMatch may also disclose your personal information in order to comply with court rules regarding the production of records and information, to GrantMatch’s legal counsel, or as otherwise permitted or required by law.
Securing Your Information – To help protect the confidentiality of your personal information, GrantMatch employs security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. Nevertheless, due to the nature of the Internet and Internet technologies, security and privacy risks cannot be eliminated and GrantMatch cannot guarantee that your personal information will not be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Policy.
Accessing Your Personal Information – You may request access to your personal information and information about GrantMatch’s collection, use and disclosure of that information by contacting our Privacy Manager. Subject to certain exceptions prescribed by law, you will be given reasonable access to your personal information, and will be entitled to challenge the accuracy and completeness of the information and to have it amended as appropriate. You can help GrantMatch maintain the accuracy of your information by notifying GrantMatch of any changes to your personal information.
