Effective June 13, 2022
Welcome to the privacy guidelines for your use of the CHC Grant Portal for your grant submissions and managing the relationship arising from your submission. This privacy statement explains what information we receive about you (including your organization), and how we use that information. If you have any questions, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
Working with you on your grant submission
- We use the information to evaluate your grant submission, and, if it is accepted, to communicate with you to manage that relationship. In some situations, we might submit that information to CHC’s grantors.
We don’t sell or rent your information
- We do not sell or rent your personal information to anybody and we do not permit it to be used to market anything to you.
Limited sharing with others
- We share some of that information with companies that help us with the CHC Grant Portal and then only for them to perform their services. For example, our CHC Grant Portal is provided by a third party. They will have access to your information.
- As we noted above, there are some occasions when we might submit some of your information to our grantors.
Types of Information
Like most other sites, the CHC Grant Portal receives and has access to information about and related to quite a few groups, but primarily site visitors and people who use the CHC Grant Portal. We explain the information in more detail below.
First of all, we do not use those cookies so we do not receive non-personal information.
Applicable law essentially defines personal information as information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or device. Naturally, this information could include your name, email address, credit card information and such other information that could identify you, whether by itself or together with other information.
What Are the Sources of Personal Information?
In addition, when you upload content, such as a grant submission, posts, images, reports, articles or other content that includes personal information about you or third parties, then, of, course, we receive it and store it.
How Do We Use the Information We Receive?
We don’t sell or rent it
- As noted above, we do not sell or lease your personal information or permit it to be used for any commercial purposes.
Limited Purposes of Use
- We use the personal information only for the purposes we describe in this Privacy Statement (see below).
- We also use the information only for the purpose for which it was received. For example, if you provide us with emergency contact information, then we would use it only to assist you in that emergency.
The Business Purposes
We use personal information for one or more of the following business purposes:
- To receive your submissions and communicate with you about them.
- To communicate with you if you receive a grant.
- To reply to any other inquiries you might make.
- To communicate with our grantors about your submission or your performance of the work under the grant to you.
- To improve the CHC Grant Portal, including R&D, testing, product development, bug fixes and the like.
- To inform you of changes to the CHC Grant Portal or other matters such as emergencies.
- To protect the CHC community—including grant applicants and grantees—when we think there is a risk or in order to comply with a grantor’s requirements or law.

Where Does the Information Go?
Additional Privacy Matters under California Law
Putting aside the question of whether or not this law applies to non-profits, we have such a policy because we do not provide personal information to any third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
California also adopted a law, known as the “Online Erasure” law (at Business and Professions Code Sections 22580-22582), which requires companies that maintain certain website or online services to allow registered users who are under the age of 18 and who are also residents of California to request that the company remove content such persons have posted.
