Privacy Policy

The following is the Privacy Policy followed by the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) in regards to the management of its website.

  • GMA believes firmly in the right to privacy and in making a good faith effort to ensure the privacy of those who visit our website.
  • Data may be compiled for any of the following reasons: (1) to provide information and communicate with visitors who have expressed an interest in our Site content; (2) to develop new Site content or services; (3) to respond to inquiries; (4) to contact visitors when necessary; (5) to review the usage and operations of our Site; (6) to address problems with the Site; or (7) to protect the security or integrity of the Site.
  • Personal information identifying a user may be needed by GMA when logging into the "Members Only" section, purchasing through the website, or registering for a webinar or event. If GMA obtains that information, it will not release, rent, or sell it to any third party.
  • If a member company uses GMA's contact information to share details about an initiative or program the company is undertaking locally, nationally, or globally, that company gives GMA the permission to use that information on the GMA website, in e-mails, or any communication produced by GMA.
  • GMA has a partner organization, the GMA Science and Education Foundation (GMA SEF). By providing information to GMA, the provider expressly agrees that this information can be shared with GMA SEF (and any subsequent partner organizations) in accordance with this GMA privacy policy unless we have received notification from the provider to the contrary.
  • While we do our best to protect personal privacy, GMA cannot guarantee the unauthorized disclosure of personal information. If links to third parties are posted on GMA's site, we encourage users to review that third party's privacy policy.
  • Personal information may be disclosed by GMA if we are legally compelled to do so or if it is immediately necessary in order to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
  • GMA, not its officers, employees, or members, is solely responsible for the content and information posted on its website. For information on the content in GMA's social media accounts, please review that policy here.
  • We reserve the right to revise this Privacy Policy at any time. When we do, we will post the change(s) on the Site. If we change the Privacy Policy in a material way, we will provide appropriate online notice to you.
