Galliard Family Business Advisor Institute, Inc. (GFBAI) takes your privacy seriously and is committed to respecting your privacy and the personal information you provide us.
As part of this commitment, we want you to know our practices and principles for collecting, using, storing, and/or disclosing your personal information.
By “personal information” we mean any information, recorded in any form, about an identified individual, or an individual whose identity may be inferred or determined from such information.
Personal information does not include information that is publicly available, such as business contact information or information found in a telephone directory.
The only personal information GFBAI captures is information you volunteer when you:
- Join our mailing list
- Become a member
- Register for an event
- Request information from us
- Complete a survey or quiz
An IP address is a number that’s assigned to your computer automatically and is required to use the Internet.
To the extent that our website obtains users’ IP addresses, they’re used only to administer the website and gather broad demographic information about visitors to the website.
An IP address is considered personal information because it’s an identifying number. But we do not link server log information to any other data in a way that would enable us to identify individual visitors.
GFBAI collects information that is necessary for:
- Registering and managing membership and/or free subscriptions
- Collecting and processing membership payments and other payments we may collect when people attend events like trainings, conferences, or webinars that are sponsored or co-sponsored by GFBAI
- Sending out membership-related information to members and subscribers
- Improving membership services and engagement
If at any time you do not wish to receive emailed information from us, you may unsubscribe and we will take you off our email list.
GFBAI never sells, trades, or rents information we collect on our website with others including individuals or companies, with the exception of our sister company, Galliard, Inc. GFBAI does share information with some of the services we use such as MembershipWorks (our member management software), MailChimp (our email software), and Stripe (our credit card processing software), for example.
GFBAI will use all reasonable efforts to protect your personal information.
GFBAI reserves the right to disclose personal information to a third party if a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, or court order legally requires or authorizes us to do so.
When you visit the Galliard Family Business Advisor Institute, Inc. (GFBAI) website, the pages you look at, and a short text file called a cookie, are downloaded to your computer.
A cookie is used to store small amounts of information. The cookie does not contain personal details and will not let a website know any information that could identify you.
GFBAI does not sell or trade the statistics that cookies store to any third parties. Some website features make use of third party applications, including social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter (through the use of sharing buttons). As a result, cookies may be set by these third parties, and used by them to track your online activity. GFBAI has no direct control over the information that is collected by these cookies.
