Some of our web pages (such as the online listserv subscription pages and Grantee Portal Share Point account) allow you to submit personal information (e.g., first and last name, email address, your Center/Program/Organization, and business phone). Our policy is simple: We do not give, share, sell, or transfer any personal information to a third party.
If you want to know more about how we record personal and non-personal information about your visit or how we use information that you voluntarily submit, read on.

Information from E-mail You Send to Us
If you decide to send us an electronic mail message (e-mail), the message will usually contain your return e-mail address. If you include personally-identifying information in your e-mail because you want us to address issues specific to your situation, we may use that information in responding to your request. In other limited circumstances, including requests from Congress or limited other parties, we may be required by law to disclose information that you submit.
Also, e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. Please send only information necessary to help us process your request.
Information Collected from Submission Forms
On some of our web pages we offer interactive forms that let you voluntarily submit personal information (such as your e-mail address, name, or organization). This occurs when you are registering for various listservs, or submitting profile for Grantee Portal SharePoint Directory. In those cases, all submitted information is used only for the expressed purposes for which it is intended and is not made available to any third party. However, when you submit a comment to a Grantee Portal SharePoint web discussion forum(s), if you supply your name, e-mail address, or other personal information, that information is posted along with your comment.
