Grandparents.com & the Association Understand How Important Privacy Is to Our Members
We are committed to protecting your privacy and the safety of your family and children.  We want to make sure that you understand how your membership information may be used.

We are a licensee of the TRUSTe Children's Online Privacy Seal Program. TRUSTe is an independent, nonprofit organization whose mission is to build user's trust and confidence in the Internet by promoting the use of fair information practices. TRUSTe is the largest FTC-approved certification provider to date. This privacy statement covers our site. Because this website wants to demonstrate its commitment to your privacy, it has agreed to disclose its information practices and have its privacy practices reviewed for compliance by TRUSTe.

What Information We Collect
When you apply for membership, we ask for basic information such as your name, contact information and date of birth and other information. We collect personal information when you register with us, when you use the site and services offered on the site, our mobile and social media applications, or the pages of certain partners, and when you enter promotions or sweepstakes. We may keep track of your participation in our activities and member services so we can understand our members' interests and evaluate the effectiveness of our offerings. We also may collect generic demographic information from other sources to help us better serve our members, and the age 50 and over population, as a whole, and to improve our programs, activities and resources. You understand that you are not anonymous to us. By using our website, our products and services, and joining our membership, you consent to our gathering, use and disclosure of your information, as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy may change from time to time and we will provide notice of changes as described herein.

Information Sharing
We will not disclose your personally identifiable information to any third party, except as provided herein. We may share your personal information with companies we have selected to provide our member products and services or support our operations. Some of the providers of our member products and services pay a fee for access to our members so our contracts with these companies require them to keep the member information confidential, and allow them to use the information only to offer the contracted products or services to us and our members.  Some of our providers may also collect data about our members through their interactions with the members. The providers may share some or all of this data with us so that we may offer more effective and personalized service to our members. We may advertise, promote, reference, recommend or provide links to third party sites, services and products. These third parties may have their own privacy policies, which may not comply with this Privacy Policy, even if the site, service or product is branded with our logo or name. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PRIVACY PRACTICES OF SUCH THIRD PARTIES OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTIES.  
In addition, we may share personal information with third parties to the extent required to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims and we may also share personal information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of the Terms of Service, to protect us, our members and our partners in emergency situations, or as otherwise required or permitted by law. If we are acquired by or merged with or into another company, we will provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.
