To better protect the privacy of our online community, GRIT consortium has developed the following policy explaining its online information practices and the choices users can make about the way information is collected and used on our website.
GRIT consortium collects browser data to make our sites and services more relevant and rewarding for users. When visitors reach our website, our Web server automatically recognizes their domain, service provider, operating system, and Internet browser. This kind of information does not enable personal identification.
Google Analytics will track the performance of our website, it will record usage of pages by visitors, which helps us understand how our content is being used, which pages are most popular, and whether we can improve design and content to optimize users’ experience.
Some of the website services may request that users provide personally identifiable information to help us communicate better. When this happens, we may use the information provided to fulfil requests for our products, programs, and services, to respond to inquiries about our consortium. Sometimes we use this information to communicate about changes to our services, to fulfil a request for additional information, or to contact groups of users about other activities and endeavours of the consortium.
We only collect personal information from you when it is provided voluntarily.
Collection of information by third-party sites
Some of our sites and services contain links to other sites whose information practices and policies may differ from those of the GRIT consortium. Visitors should consult other sites’ privacy policies, as the GRIT consortium has no control over information submitted to or collected by these third parties.
Disclosure of personal information to parties outside the Consortium
The GRIT consortium does not sell, rent, give away, or loan any identifiable information regarding its Web users to any third party agencies.
The GRIT Consortium may release personal information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with law, (ii) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements, or (iii) protect the rights, property, or safety of the GRIT Consortium, our users, or others.
Protection of user information
We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information collected online. Information transmission, storage, and retrieval are secured.
We urge users to protect their own privacy. We recommend that users never share any account information or passwords used to access our sites or services. We will never request that users provide us with their passwords.
Despite all of our efforts, there remains a risk that third parties may unlawfully intercept transmissions. This is true of all Internet use. As a result, we cannot ensure the security of any information users transmit. Users understand that all information is transmitted at their own risk.
