What information is generated when you visit GRInetwork.org? 

Depending how you use our web site, certain types of personal and non-personal information may be generated and collected. For example, you may give us your name or email address when you complete a registration screen, respond to a questionnaire or submit an e-mail to us. Unless we receive your approval to do otherwise, any personal information provided to us will only be used by us to fulfill the stated objective for which the information was requested or collected. Example, if information, that you are providing is to change your email address, we will update the information and not provide it to others. Currently, we are only collecting information on the comments page of our site, http://www.GRInetwork.org/comments.htm. We collect "Subject" of the comment, the comment itself and the name, email, phone and fax numbers. We collect the contact information, so we may respond to submitted comments.

Other types of information that may be generated and collected when you use our web site is information that we consider non-personal in nature. For example, we may collect the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account); the date and time you access our site or and the Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to our site. We use this information solely to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our Web site and to help us make our Web site more useful to visitors.


Comments Feature

Like most sites on the Internet, our web site contains a feature that allows you to contact us with your comments or questions. Not surprisingly, we call this feature Comments. To use this feature, there is a link at the bottom of each page on our Web site which you can click onto. When you do click this link, a screen will prompt you to provide us with certain information, such as your first and last name, email address, phone and fax number and your address, including your city and state.

The information collected through the "Comments" feature is used solely to investigate and respond to your inquiries. We may also use the information you provide to update our records.


Locate a GRI

As one of the many benefits of membership with GRInetwork.org, we make available on our web site (www.GRInetwork.org) a searchable database of our members called the "Locate a GRI." The purpose of this section is to assist the public in locating and contacting our members. The "Locate a GRI" contains searchable characteristics about our members, such as the memberís name, company or city location. The member information made available through the GRInetwork.org "Locate a GRI" is intended to contain only the business information of our members. Under no circumstances will we intentionally display or make available your personal home addresses or telephone number in the "Locate a GRI" unless you indicated these to GRInetwork.org as your preferred contact information. If you would like to be removed from the "Locate a GRI", please see the section of this privacy policy called "Choice/Opt Out." If you have corrections or updates to the "Locate a GRI", please see the section called "Corrections/Updates."


Information Sharing and Disclosure

Personal Information Disposal

The GRInetwork.org handles customer personal information in accordance with the State of California assembly bill 2246, which requires all businesses to take all reasonable steps to destroy customer or client records containing personal information that we no longer need.

GRInetwork.org principally ensures the privacy of a customer's personal information contained in records by arranging for the destruction of the records by shredding.

Our objective is to comply with the State of California assembly bill 2246 and to protect clients' privacy and prevent identity theft.

Surveys

We may from time to time create and use surveys on our web site. Most surveys are simple "click box" surveys where you click a box on the screen to indicate your response. However, we may from time to time ask you for your name, email address or demographic information. If a survey does ask you this information, we will not use it for any purpose other than to complete the survey, compile statistics and update our records.
