Privacy Policy

Information We Collect and Use

The Gunks Climbers’ Coalition (GCC) collects some personal information from our website visitors only to process donations, subscribe people to our mailing list or correspond through emails.

Mailing List

We use the MailChimp service to manage our newsletter mailing list. We collect names, email addresses and the city, state and zip code of those who join the GCC, attend events and add their information to our mailing list sign up sheets, or subscribe online to our mailing list. We also receive name, address, phone number and membership dates from people who join the Access Fund and specify the GCC as their local affiliate. This data is added to our mailing list database, which is stored on the MailChimp servers. The city, state and zip codes are used to send mailings that are specifically targeted to a geographic area. The mailing list data is never shared with any third party vendors, made public, or sold. All emails sent to the mailing list contain a link to opt-out/unsubscribe. You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. MailChimp never sells lists or email addresses, as explained in the MailChimp privacy policy.

Contact Form

In addition, people who send us an email through our contact form will have their email address and message forwarded directly to the GCC email address, which is monitored by the GCC Secretary and may be shared with other members of the GCC Board of Directors to determine the appropriate response. We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request.

Donation Form

Website visitors who wish to donate money on our website will be providing their personal information (in the form of name, address, phone number, donation amount) on a form. The personal information will be used for our records and the email address added to our mailing list. Donors and their personal information are not made public and may only be visible to the GCC Board of Directors. After submitting the donation form, the donor is forwarded offsite to the Paypal website to process their credit card payment. The GCC does not see or receive any of the credit card number information.
