Information We Collect
Whenever you visit goodgrub.org, the following anonymous information is collected as a routine aspect of the communications between your computer and our web server:
- Your browser type & version (for example, Internet Explorer 10)
- Your computer’s operating system & version (for example, Windows 8)
- Your IP (Internet Protocol) address (a numerical identifier assigned to your ISP or your individual computer)
- The date & time of your visit
- The pages you visited while on our website
- The address of the website you visited just prior to ours
We use this information in order to determine how our website is being used, so that we can optimize its content organization & design.
In addition to the information collected anonymously about your visit to GOODGRUB.ORG, we also collect and store personally identifying information about you if you choose to submit that information to us through any of our web forms, such as our Kitchen Garden Project application form, or our Volunteer Newsletter signup form.
Some of our web forms, such as our Donation form, are hosted by a third-party company, Z2 Systems, Inc., with whom we contract to provide Constituent Relationship Management (CRM) and payment processing services. The forms which are provided by Z2 Systems can be identified by examining the URL in your browser’s address bar; any URL showing the domain Z2SYSTEMS.COM is located on the web servers of that company, not on our servers. Any information submitted through the forms hosted by Z2 Systems is subject to the security and privacy policies of Z2 Systems, Inc.
We also utilize third-party service providers to, for example, create and send email newsletters. Information submitted by you through any of our newsletter signup forms are subject to the security and privacy policies of these providers.

We will utilize this information to contact you for event invitations, organizational news, donation requests, and other pertinent communications. You are welcome to change your preferences regarding how/if you would like to be contacted at any time by contacting us.
