Privacy Policy

Protecting the privacy and security of your personal information is very important to us. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do with the personal information we collect both online and offline. The following describes the information we may collect, how we may use it, if we will share it with anyone and how to request the information be removed from our records:

 

Protection of Information

We use security measures to protect your personal information and to control access to it, including computer safeguards and monitoring, and secured files and buildings to control access.  However, GCA is a small organization and is very aware that protecting on-line donor information is very difficult. Because of this, GCA has contracted with PayPal to process all on-line donations. Anyone who seeks to make an on-line donation to GCA will automatically be directed to PayPal’s site, where you may either log-in if you are a PayPal user, or sign in as a guest. The financial transaction will be handled by PayPal, and the funds will be deposited into GCA’s account by PayPal. While using the PayPal’s website, PayPal’s privacy policy, terms and conditions will apply. Please do not email GCA any sensitive information such as a Social Security, credit card or account numbers.

 

Use of Website by Children

If a visitor to our website tells us that he or she is under the age of 13, we do not collect any personal information from that person.

 

Social Media Platforms

GCA uses third-party services such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. If you communicate with GCA through any third-party or social media platform, you may be providing third parties access to your personal information, which can be used to distinguish or trace your identity. The privacy policy, terms and conditions of those third-party sites will apply to our communications as GCA has no way to alter those policies.

 

How Your Information May Be Used

We use your personal information to provide you with personalized service and provide additional information in the future. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from us, except communications required by law such as donor receipts. As a matter of principle, GCA does not use cookies to track visitors to our website.

 

Email Privacy

GCA does not provide, sell, or rent email addresses to anyone outside of GCA, except that it has an agreement with the Salzburg Global Seminar to share contact information relating to past, present and future participants in Global Citizenship Programs offered by GCA or Salzburg Global Seminar. This sharing of information arises out of the connection between the Seminar’s history and GCA’s future, as well as the current nature of GCA offering its Global Citizenship programs in association with the Salzburg Global Seminar.

GCA’s website may include links to external websites. These links do not fall under GCA’s authority, and GCA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of external websites.

Lazarus and Liberty

Core faculty and long-time friend and supporter of the Global Citizenship Alliance, Peter Rose, published an article in the Massachusetts Review in response to the recent discussions about Emma Lazarus' poem "The New Colossus" hanging on a bronze plaque inside the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. In Peter's words, "To say that Lazarus would be appalled at the mockery made of her sonnet—and, implicitly, of all those who found her words encouraging—by Donald Trump’s Acting Commissioner of Immigration, Ken Cuccinelli, would be an understatement. Like her sonnet, Emma Lazarus was herself a Colossus, a true American giant in comparison to the xenophobic Lilliputians in today’s Washington." massreview
