Collection of Personal Information
The Fund collects and stores various types of information about you depending on your activities when visiting the Site. However, simply put, the Fund will collect no personally identifiable information about you when you visit the Site unless you voluntarily choose to provide that information (for example, by sending us an e-mail).
Voluntarily Identifying Yourself. If you choose to identify yourself by sending an e-mail, for example, the Site will collect and store personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information may include your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. Any personal information you provide is submitted at your discretion. However, some uses of this Site may be limited should you decide not to disclose such personal information (for example, requesting additional information about the Fund’s programs or activities by way of e-mail).
This Site uses standard Internet “cookie” technology. A cookie is a bit of information that is stored on a visitor’s hard drive that allows the Site to track how a visitor navigates through the Site and areas in which a visitor showed interest. This is similar to a traffic report: it tracks trends and behaviors, but does not personally identify individuals. With most Internet browsers or other software, you can erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. If you reject cookies, you use of our Site may be limited.
Use of Personal Information
The Fund may use your personal information for the following purposes: to provide easy access every time you return to the Site without requiring re-entry of information (for example, the online E-grant application); to assess general usage patterns; to administer and make improvements to the Site; to collect demographic information; and/or to analyze the collected information. We generally will retain your personal information until such time as we no longer have a use for it.
