Operation Groundswell collects information from you by asking you to provide personal information such as your email address when you subscribe to our mailing list or request more information about our programs. We also collect personal information such as your name, age, address, email, and phone number where required, when you apply for and/or are accepted to a program. We collect this information so that we can provide the services and information that you request.
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via our application form, program inquiry request, email, and/or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent your information to anybody. We wouldn’t even know how.
