We do not collect personally-identifiable information from you unless you knowingly provide it to us.  If you personalize your profile, create an account, or provide grant preferences, for example, we may collect information such as your full name, address, telephone number, email address, profile image and the subject of inquiry.  We may combine your visit and navigational information with the personal information that you provide for internal purposes.

It is always your choice whether to provide us with personally-identifiable information that we request, but the use of certain features, such as registering an account, or making a donation will not be available without such information from you.
