Some areas of our website allow you the option to enter personal information. These may include registration information, profile information; requests for materials or information; subscriptions to email communication services; surveys or feedback forms; email links to our departments or individuals; or otherwise. If you voluntarily choose to provide personal information, it may be viewed by various people at Northern California Grantmakers in the process of responding to your online request. If you elect to receive regular e-mail communications from us (such as an e-mail newsletter subscription), you will always be provided with an "opt-out" method so that you can unsubscribe at any time.

If you choose to provide us with personal information, we will never sell, rent or provide this information to others without your consent except as we might be required to do so by law.

We make extensive use of technologies and techniques to help protect the integrity of the personal information you provide to us via the Internet. Still, you should be aware that electronic communications may not always be secure, in spite of all precautions.
