This privacy policy explains how the Council on Graduate Studies in Religion (CGSR) will handle your personal information.

Private Information We Collect: When you register as a member with us, we require you to provide us with your name, e-mail address, and the name of the institution with which you are associated. This information is for our internal use only. We will keep this information only for as long as is reasonably necessary for us to maintain your membership.

Public Information You May Provide: You may choose to share information about yourself through our member network such as your physical address, phone number, e- mail address, your CV, your teaching and research interests, or your degree status. What you share about yourself is entirely up to you; however, you should have no expectation of privacy in any personal information you choose to share. Any personal information you share will be considered public information and will be accessible by other CGSR members and non-members who participate in our member network, use our other services, or access our website.

Use of Member Information: Our member network is a professional networking service. The information our members share about themselves is intended to be used solely for the purpose of connecting fellow CGSR members and certain third-parties such as prospective employers with each other. No other use of our member information is permitted. Further, the redistribution, republication, or dissemination of any member information, such as the sale of a member’s personal information to a marketing or data-collecting company, is strictly prohibited.

Misuse of Member Information: If, in our sole opinion, any CGSR member or third- party has used or attempted to use a member’s information in violation of our privacy policy, the member or third-party will be barred from our member network, banned from using our other services, and denied further access to our website.

Contacting You: By providing us with your e-mail address, you agree that we may contact you via the e-mail address you have provided.
