Credit Card Transactions
Groundswell Fund uses carefully selected service providers to process credit card transactions on our behalf. When you provide credit card information through this site, your information goes directly from your computer to a server operated by our service provider. Our service provider uses your credit card information only to process your transaction and is bound by contract to treat all of your personal information as confidential. Although our service providers send us the information you provide when you complete a transaction, they do not share your credit card information with us.
Technical information collected through this website
When you access this website, we use standard web server technology to collect technical information, such as the name of your Internet service provider, its IP address, the name of your operating system (such as Windows® or Macintosh®), your browser type (such as Chrome® or Internet Explorer®), the length of time you spend on our site during a visit, the pages you visit, and so on. This information does not identify you personally, and we do not attempt to tie this technical information to any of the personal information you provide. We use this information to improve our website and make it more compatible with the technology used by our visitors.
When you provide information through this website, the transmission is protected by secure socket layer (SSL) encryption. You must understand, however, that the internet is inherently insecure and no website operator can guarantee that a website is completely secure. Groundswell Fund does not warrant that this website is secure or “hackerproof.” You use this website solely at your own risk.

This website may contain links to other websites owned and operated by Groundswell Fund. It also may contain links to websites that are not operated by us.

Groundswell Fund does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 through this website. If you believe that a child has provided information to us through this website, please contact us at [email protected] or by writing to us at the addresses listed at the top of this page. Please give us enough information so that we can correctly identify the information provided by the child. We will use our best efforts to remove all of the information provided by the child from our system.
Questions and Concerns
“Personal information” is information about an identified or identifiable individual. Your personal information may include your name, your address, and your email address.
Groundswell Fund uses your personal information for the purposes for which it was provided. For example, if you subscribe to a newsletter, we use your contact information to mail or email the newsletter to you. If you apply to volunteer, we use information about your background, interests, and skills to help you find the right volunteer opportunity. If you register for an event, we use the information you provide to process your registration. If you complete a poll or survey or send us comments or other information, we use that information to improve our programs, services, and communications. We also use your personal information to respond to your questions and comments and to thank you for your donations.
Groundswell Fund uses personal information to compile statistics about visitors to our website, donors, volunteers, and other supporters. These statistics do not identify you personally.
If you provide us with your name and address, you may receive periodic mailings from us with news and information about Groundswell Fund and its programs and events, or containing requests for your support.
Groundswell Fund shares the personal information it collects with third-party vendors who act for or on behalf of Groundswell Fund. For example, when you register for an event, a third party processes your registration on our behalf. These third-party vendors may need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use your personal information for any other purpose and are bound by contract to treat all of your personal information as confidential.
There may be other limited circumstances in which we may share or transfer information in our databases to an unrelated third party, for example, to comply with a legal requirement or court order; in the event of a tax audit or other investigation; to investigate a possible crime, such as credit card fraud; to protect the security of our website and the integrity of our databases; if we reorganize or merge with another organization, or in some similar event. Whenever we share personal information with third parties, we take appropriate steps, by contract or otherwise, to limit the use and prevent the unauthorized disclosure of that personal information.
Groundswell Fund does not share mailing lists with other organizations (except as described in the preceding two paragraphs).
