Girls Group respects your privacy and takes serious responsibility in protecting the privacy of the participants and families we serve, as well as our many volunteers, sponsors, and donors. As part of this responsibility, we let you know what information we collect, how we collect it, and how we use this information to improve and sustain our high-quality programs.
Information That Girls Group Collects
Girls Group collects information about our program participants (with consent from parents/guardians when under the age of majority) via online program registration and paper forms. For program registration, we collect names, postal and email addresses, phone numbers, demographic information, emergency contact information, and other information voluntarily submitted to us.
Girls Group also collects personal information (names, postal and email addresses, phone numbers, and other information voluntarily submitted to us) when a person generously chooses to support Girls Group by volunteering or donating.
Information That Third-Parties Collect
This website may provide links to websites, social media platforms, and technology of other entities. Girls Group is not responsible for the services, content, information collection practices, or privacy policies of those entities. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of such sites.
Third-party service providers are used to perform certain services, such as the collection of donations made to Girls Group. Third-party service providers may collect credit card information if a payment is submitted, but that information is not passed on to Girls Group. Girls Group uses Give Lively for donations made on this website’s Donate page, which conforms to information security standards.
Participants and parents/guardians may receive invitations via email to join virtual programming. Participants and parents/guardians who choose to participate in virtual programming will access a link to participate in online sessions through third-party platforms, such as Zoom.
