Privacy Policy

This policy describes how we collect and use information about visitors to the Global Grandmothers site.  By using this site, you acknowledge and consent to our practices described below.  If you have questions or comments about the policy or our use of your personal information, please contact us.  We are committed to respecting the privacy rights of all donors and visitors to our site.

Our General Policy
Global Grandmothers recognizes the importance of protecting information we may collect from donors and visitors to our site.  Our policy is to use the information we acquire from visitors and donors for internal purposes only, and we maintain appropriate security measures to keep this information private.

Information We Collect
You may use our site without disclosing to us any personally identifiable information.  We collect personally identifiable information about you only if you choose to provide it to us.  This personally identifiable information may include, for example, your name, physical address, phone number, and email address.  Global Grandmothers does not share this information with any third parties.

We do not use browser cookies to track user behavior on our website.  Although our web server does log certain technical information automatically, such as the identity of your Internet Service Provider and your computer’s IP address, none of this technical information reveals your identity to us, and it is not associated with any personally identifiable information you may choose to provide.

Email Updates
We may use a third-party to deliver emails.  This company may employ techniques for tracking open rates and click-thrus that use email address as an identifier.

You may be given the option to remove your name from our email list at the bottom of the email update.  If there is no such option, email us that you would like to be removed and we will do so.

Online Donations
Global Grandmothers uses PayPal to process donations.  When you make a donation via PayPal to Global Grandmothers on the website, your personal information is subject to PayPal’s data collection practices.  For a full description, please read PayPal’s privacy and security statements.

All online transactions will be confirmed by a follow-up email.
Global Grandmothers goal is to engage you in a long-term partnership.  We value and appreciate the trust that accompanies your online donation.  If you donate online, as we stated above, we will never share this information – including sell, rent or trade this information — with a third party.

If you donate online through us to a charity, we will share your information with that charity unless you state otherwise on the donation form.

Third Party Links to Other Websites
Global Grandmothers site links to third party websites maintained by outside organizations.  These third-party websites are not subject to this policy and are governed by their own privacy policies.  Global Grandmothers is not responsible for the privacy practices or policies of these websites.

Changing Information or Opting Out
To update, correct or remove the information you provide to us via this site, you may contact us directly.

Security of Information
Global Grandmothers has implemented and follows appropriate technical measures to protect against the risks of unauthorized access to, erroneous disclosure of, and unlawful interception of personally identifiable information.  You should know, however, that Global Grandmothers cannot fully eliminate such risks.

Change of Policy
Global Grandmothers hopes this policy clarifies our procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of your information.  Should these procedures change, we will post them to the site and they will be effective at that time.  Questions or concerns about the privacy policy may be submitted to Global Grandmothers via our contact page.

We look forward to a long-term partnership with you.
