 Personal Information

As we provide numerous grief support services online, we collect information from users - things like your name, address, e-mail address and areas of interest. We are sensitive to your privacy and take pains to protect personal information while giving you the opportunity to obtain useful resources to support you through grief.

National Grief Support Services policy is not to share information that could be used to identify you with any third party, either by selling, reselling, trading, leasing or renting it. Users who request our e-mail products will receive regular communications as explained when they sign up. We will not share e-mail addresses with other organizations.Unless otherwise required by statute, we do not identify publicly who

sends questions or comments to our web site. We will not obtain information that will allow us to personally identify you when you visit our site, unless you chose to provide such information to us. We discourage the use of support groups and chat rooms by researchers, and we will never disclose the identity of anyone participating in one of our services in which screen or phone names are used. We encourage you to avoid providing information in these forums that is so specific it could be used to identify you against your wishes.

When you enroll in a service, you will receive a limited number of e-mails informing you of how to receive that service or participate in related activities on our websites.

If you donate to National Grief Support Services online, your name will be entered onto our database and you may receive occasional fund-raising appeals. Your e-mail address will not be shared with other organizations or businesses. National Grief Support Services will not sell, trade, lease or rent the names of its donors. Nor do we buy the names of donors of other organizations. If you do not want to receive mailings, you can request by e-mail or in writing that we remove your name from our donor base.


Our sites contain links to other websites, but we do not provide the operators of these sites with any of your personally identifiable information. Our privacy policy is not applicable to any other website you link to through our sites, however. You should consult the privacy policy on any other website before providing personal information to that site.

We can not tolerate anyone coming to harm through the activities or postings that someone else engages in our websites, so these
