Our Privacy Policy

The Greater Gig Harbor Foundation (“GGHF” or the “Foundation”) recognizes that your privacy and the protection of your personal information are important to you and is committed to safeguarding the personal information with which it is entrusted. This statement discloses how the Foundation helps protect your personal information while using the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation website. This document was last updated December 1, 2012.
This policy applies to the whole of the Foundation, including its GGHF Curious by Nature School, project committees, and to any person providing services on our behalf.

What personal information do we collect?

We only collect personal information that you specifically and voluntarily provide. This information includes information (e.g. your name, phone number, or e-mail address) that we need for the purposes of providing services, sending periodic notices and other information, or responding to an enquiry you have made. All pages that collect such information specifically define what information is needed to provide you with the service or information that you have requested.

Use of your information

The Greater Gig Harbor Foundation will use your information for one of several purposes:

  • To store your information for you and deliver it to you when you request it.
  • To answer your questions or to respond to requests for further information.
  • To help us create and deliver content most relevant to you.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to share information about current Foundation happenings and other community-based initiatives being carried out by partners across our greater Gig Harbor and Key peninsula communities, services, or changes to this privacy policy.

Computer Information

We may collect certain technical information each time you request a page during a visit to the Foundation’s website. This information is collected from your computer’s web browser and may include your IP address, the web browser version (e.g. Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox), and referring Web site.

Sharing your information

We will not sell or share the personal information that you provide with any third party outside of the Foundation, its immediate affiliate organizations, or its working boards or committees, for any reason without your permission.

The Foundation may disclose certain information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is required to: (a) comply with a legal mandate, regulations, or legal process served on GGHF; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the Foundation and other websites that may be hosted by the Foundation for its affiliated organizations or fiscally sponsored projects, or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of GGHF, its hosted websites, or the public.

We encourage you to review the privacy statements of any website you elect to link to so that you know how those sites collect, use, and share information.
