Your privacy is important to us.

The Gendler Grapevine Project wants you to know exactly how and when we collect and use information that can specifically identify you, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, and email address (“personal information”).

We do not require that you provide, nor do we collect, any personal information if you are just browsing the Site.  The Gendler Grapevine Project will not disclose your personal information to any third party unless: 1) it is necessary in order to provide you with a particular service you have requested (such as a newsletter); 2) it is required of The Gendler Grapevine Project in order to comply with a legal process in any applicable jurisdiction (e.g., court order, subpoena, search warrant, law enforcement request); 3) The Gendler Grapevine Project determines, in its sole discretion, that disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of The Gendler Grapevine Project team members, supporters, website visitors, or others.

In certain instances, The Gendler Grapevine Project may request that you provide secondary information (e.g., demographic information), which we may use, for example, to learn more about our visitors and to develop and improve our website. Any requests for secondary information will be marked “optional” (or its equivalent). We may compile your personal information with that collected from other visitors to create aggregate data. Aggregate data is information about groups of visitors and, once compiled, will in no way identify you as an individual. We may disclose aggregate data to our partners, supporters, advisors and other parties.

Our web servers collect from Site visitors statistical information regarding what pages are visited, the date and time of the visits, how long it took a user to download a page, and the TCP/IP address of the user. These automated server functions do not collect this information in a manner intended to identify your individual use of the Site, nor do we use this information for any such purpose. This information is collected to assist us in maintaining a high quality site, as well as, providing necessary traffic information to our advertisers.  The Site contains cookie technology, which collects non-personal information about you which is used to customize the Site for your future use.

Our Use of Personal Information

Your name and contact information is considered to be private and will be used for internal purposes only.  We will use this information to confirm that you would like to receive information about the Gendler Grapevine Project, including information about projects supported by the Gendler Grapevine Fund. We ask Site visitors who would like to contribute or register a future pledge to the Gendler Grapevine Fund to fill out a Donation Form, which includes their name, email address and donation or pledge amount, before being directed to a third-party website.  We also ask whether contributors would like to be listed as supporters on the Gendler Grapevine Project website.  We will not list your name on our website without your express permission.

We will not share, loan, barter or sell information about you or your fund to any third party without your written consent.

If you would prefer not to receive communication from The Gendler Grapevine Project, please email us at or fill out the Contact Form under the “Contact Us” menu.

Links to Other Sites

On The Gendler Grapevine website, we provide links to other websites that we think may be of interest to you. While we provide links to websites that we think are worthwhile and accurate, we cannot be responsible for the content on these sites. We encourage you to review these sites’ privacy policies to learn more about what, why and how they collect and use personal information.

The Gendler Grapevine Project makes best efforts to secure any personal information in our possession, and to secure it from unauthorized access and tampering. However, as is true with all online actions, it is possible that third parties may unlawfully intercept transmissions of personal information, or other users of the Site may misuse or abuse your personal information that they may collect from the Site.

Changes to Privacy Policy

The Gendler Grapevine Project reserves the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove immaterial portions of this policy at any time. We encourage you to check these terms periodically for any changes.
