One is our association partners; the other is vendors that sign up for the annual conference. Please click here to take your name off either the association partner list or the vendor list. We do not sell or rent e-mail addresses to anyone outside GRCA.

E-mail Information Gathered by the GRCA

For some e-mails distributed by GRCA, specific information on recipient response is collected. For example, we sometimes review how many recipients open and subsequently choose to click through to links provided in an e-mail. We use this information only for the purposes of analyzing areas of interest, improving what we offer on the website and enhancing the usefulness of our website for GRCA members and other visitors. None of this information is sold or distributed outside of the GRCA in any manner.

The GRCA's Support Level Agreement

The GRCA is committed to providing 100 percent availability of its Internet site. We have implemented safeguards and alarms to notify us in the event of loss of Internet connectivity to the backbone and of hardware failures. Even with these safeguards in place, loss of connectivity or hardware failure can still occur. For this reason, the GRCA cannot "guarantee" its Internet connectivity, nor can we be responsible for lost or delayed requests, email, or content.

For questions regarding our web site being down or any related service outage, please send an email to info@govcollect.org.

Govcollect.org Site/Membership Registration Forms

Our site's registration forms require users to give us contact information (like name and email address), method of payment, and demographic information.

Information regarding method of payment is collected for member enrollment, registration and to process orders for products and services.
