Collection of Information
Information You Give Us
As with many websites, this Site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via email and our account registration, information request, event registration and online contribution forms. Some of the information that you submit to us may be personally identifiable information, including, but not limited to, your name, address, telephone number, email address, date of birth, user name and/or password associated with the password protected portions of this Site, credit card information and educational and professional information.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information; Cookies
As part of the standard operation of this Site, we may passively collect some non-personal information about you (such as a user’s IP address) using information-gathering technology, so it may not be readily apparent to you that it is being collected. This information is not personally identifiable. At this time, we do not analyze or disclose such information. The various technologies used to power the different Site sections meet or exceed all applicable federal regulations for data security and personal information protection: SSL encryption is activated whenever personal data is collected, cookies stored on users’ computers don’t contain personally-identifiable information, and webSite browsing is not tracked on personal level. We will provide prior notice if and when we choose to change this practice.

The personal information that you provide to Gross Schechter may be stored, processed and used by Gross Schechter to contact you, provide you with information about Gross Schechter (such as newsletters, updates or other literature), respond to your requests for information, update our records and conduct transactions with you.
We may also provide this information to employees, agents or service providers acting on Gross Schechter’s behalf in connection with the activities described above and other professional, technical and administrative services. Gross Schechter will only provide those employees, agents and service providers the personal information they need to perform their functions for us.
We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our Site and to protect such information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. Gross Schechter cannot warrant the security of any information that you submit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
In particular, email sent to or from this Site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email.
