The Grantsmanship Center® Privacy Policy

The Grantsmanship Center® is committed to protecting your privacy. We do not share, sell or distribute your telephone number or e-mail address to other parties.

We do send e-mail announcements to inform you of our upcoming workshops in your area or areas you have selected. If you do not wish to receive e-mail announcements about these events, please let us know by unsubscribing at the bottom of the email message and we will quickly remove your name, or you may contact our mailing list department at mailinglist@tgci.com.

Although we do not disclose telephone numbers or email addresses to third parties, occasionally, we provide names and postal addresses from our mailing list to other organizations who offer products that we think may appeal to our subscribers. We monitor these transactions to ensure that the names are not used for any other purpose. If you would like to be excluded from any list of postal addresses we provide to others, please contact our mailing list department at mailinglist@tgci.com.

If you would like to us to delete your name and personal information from our mailing list entirely, please let us know by emailing mailinglist@tgci.com.

If you ever have any concerns about privacy, please contact us by emailing mailinglist@tgci.com or calling (213) 482-9860.

By visiting The Grantsmanship Center website or submitting your personally identifiable information to us, you accept the terms described in this Privacy Policy. From time to time we may modify these rules. We will notify you of any significant change by posting a notice on our Site and information collection forms. Your continued use of the Site after any modification indicates your agreement to the new terms.

Collection and Use of Personal Data
When you register as a member, order our books or other materials, request information, or enroll in our classes, we will use our registration screens and online forms to collect personally identifying information such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, educational background, and professional goals and interests ("personal data"). We may also collect some or all of this personal data from you through our print enrollment forms. In addition, if you send us an e-mail or communicate with us offline, we may collect the personal data that you voluntarily provide us at that time.

We may use your personal data in the following ways:

  • for the purpose for which you specifically provided the personal data, for example to enroll you in one of our workshops, to process your order of one of our books or other materials, or to respond to a specific inquiry;
  • to send surveys or questionnaires so that we can learn more about our customers' needs and interests;
  • unless you opt out, to send you our online newsletter.
  • unless you opt out, to send you information about new products or services that we think might interest you.

If you do not want us to send you surveys and questionnaires, or to provide you with information about our other products and services, you can opt out of receiving this information by following the steps described below in the section entitled, Your Ability to Choose.

Anonymous Information
You can visit most pages on The Grantsmanship Center website without giving us any personal data. Your visit may automatically provide us with anonymous data that is not linked to your personal data, such as your IP (Internet Protocol) address, browser type, operating system, domain name, access times, and referring website addresses. Some parts of the Site use cookies to facilitate your use of the websites and to track general traffic. You can learn more about these anonymous data collection devices in the section entitled Cookies, below.

We use your anonymous data to obtain general statistics regarding the use of the Site and its specific web pages and to evaluate how our visitors use and navigate our Site on an aggregate basis. We do not link your anonymous data with your personal data.

We may use a service provider to track and analyze non-personal data, such as usage and volume statistical information from site visitors. This anonymous data will not be linked to your personal data.

In an effort to provide you with the most relevant website content and marketing materials, we may also use embedded pixel technologies to help track site usage and response to our marketing campaigns. Again, the anonymous information we capture through this mechanism is not linked to your personal data.

Your Ability to Choose
You can let us know if you do not want us to send you information by taking the following steps:

  • to let us know you do not want delivery of the newsletter, or other informational emails, open the email and click the blue link at the bottom of the message to unsubscribe;
  • to let us know about your other communication preferences, either call 213-482-9860 or send an email to mailinglist@tgci.com. Please identify all the email addresses, postal address information, and phone numbers that you may have submitted to us, so we can ensure that we respect your wishes.

You can let us know if you do not want us to share your data with other companies by either calling 213-482-9860, or sending an email to mailinglist@tgci.com. Again, please identify all the data you have submitted to us, so we can ensure that all your email addresses, postal address information, and phone numbers are marked "do not share."
