Your consent to this Privacy Policy

When you email GBCA staff or sign up for information, you consent to our collection and retention of your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy.

What information do we collect, and how is it used?

Personal Information is data about an identifiable individual, such as your name, company, job title, address, telephone number, and email address.

We also use Personal Information to:

  • Operate our website in accordance with our terms and conditions;
  • Respond to your questions or inquiries;
  • Conduct research and surveys;
  • Conduct promotional activities
  • Send you informational or promotional communications that you have agreed to receive;
  • Carry out other purposes that are disclosed to you and to which you consent;
  • Carry out any other purpose permitted or required by law.

If you have provided us with your Personal Information, but later decide you no longer want us to send you any information from us, you may unsubscribe by using the unsubscribe option in our commercial communications.


If you are participating in or attending a videoconferencing event, such as a Zoom or Teams meeting, your profile information, image, voice, and chat history may be shared with other attendees during the event. Events may be recorded (video, audio and/or transcription) and recordings may be shared with other attendees, invitees, or other parties. We will not record any event without a valid reason and recordings will be used only for the stated purpose. Examples of valid reasons include:

  • to allow the facilitator or notetaker to verify that meeting notes are complete and accurate.
  • to allow invitees who could not attend to fully experience the meeting.
  • if a recording is required for legal or regulatory purposes.
  • if the recording is intended to be a resource for internal or external audiences.

We will make reasonable efforts to prevent the release of any recording that includes accidentally shared personal or confidential information, images of non-participants, and inappropriate images or materials. As a participant, you are responsible for notifying the meeting host immediately if you become aware that a recording may include such information.

We reserve the right to transfer any Personal Information we have about you in the event that we merge with or are acquired by a third party or should any such transaction be proposed. We may also use, or disclose your Personal Information to third parties, if we have reason to believe that using or disclosing such information is necessary to: (i) conduct investigations of possible breaches of law; (ii) identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating an agreement they have with us; (iii) investigate security breaches or cooperate with government authorities pursuant to a legal matter; or (iv) to protect our rights, safety or property.

Lastly, we may disclose your Personal Information for any other purpose to which you consent.

Although we have taken measures to help protect our websites, computer systems and any Personal Information that we have collected from unauthorized use, access, disclosure, misuse, alteration or destruction, no security measures can provide absolute protection. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us.


Some or all of the Personal Information we collect may be stored or processed on servers located outside your jurisdiction of residence, including the United States, whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. As a result, this information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in those jurisdictions according to laws in those jurisdictions.

With whom do we share the information?

The information is used internally, to review the effectiveness of our communications. We never share or sell our contact lists and staff are prohibited from unauthorized use.

What is the GBCA opt-out policy?

As required by Federal law, we provide an unsubscribe option with all promotional emails.
