Your information or usage data may be shared with Third Party services such as PayPal, Mailchimp, Stripe, and Google Analytics. Please read their privacy policies if you would like to learn more about how they will use your information and/or data.

GMP may use your personal and non-personal information for our own marketing and non-marketing purposes. For example, we may use personal information to respond to your email or telephone inquiries, or to advise you of upcoming events, workshops, newsletters, or fundraising efforts. In addition, we may add your personal information to our databases, including subscriber and contact lists. GMP will not use or disclose your personal information without your consent, except:

* where required or authorized by law;
* to implement the terms of any agreement we have with you;
* to assist the lawful investigation of a law enforcement authority;
* to protect the rights, property or personal safety of GMP, another GMP user, or any member of the public;
* if GMP assets and operations are transferred to another party, and then only as part of that transfer; or
* as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy.
