Privacy Policy

Your right to privacy is very important to us. We recognize that when you choose to provide us with information about yourself, you trust us to act in a responsible manner. We believe this information should only be used to help us provide you with better service. That's why we have put a policy in place to protect your personal information. Below is a summary of our policy.

What personal information do we collect?
In general, when you visit our web site and access information you remain anonymous. When you join a support group, we ask for your name and specific contact information. We need your email address because our groups work by email. We ask for your snailmail address and phone number for two reasons. One is to have a way to contact you if email fails; the other is to screen our members and make certain that the people who join are here for the reasons for which the groups are formed. No one but selected staff members will ever see this information. We highly respect our members privacy and never share this information with anyone else under any circumstances.

Protecting your privacy:
We will take appropriate steps to protect your privacy. We will take reasonable security measures to protect your personal information in storage. We will not provide any of your personal information to other companies or individuals, period.

Our web site may provide links to third party sites. Since we do not control those web sites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of these third party sites.

GriefNet welcomes comments and questions on this policy. We are dedicated to protecting your personal information, and will make every reasonable effort to keep that information secure. Due to the rapidly evolving technologies on the Internet, we may occasionally update this policy. All revisions will be posted to this site. Questions regarding this statement should be directed to the Cendra Lynn.
