Information Collection and Use. GCHA is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. The information on this site is shared only with members of the GCHA who have registered and been authorized access. We do not share information with third parties, vendors, individuals, or activities with outside commercial interests.
Information collected on GCHA’s Web site from GCHA members is done to fulfill requests inclusive of, but not limited to, receiving information, providing information, or asking for GCHA assistance related to or associated with the GCHA ‘ activities, Covenants, Codes, and Restrictions (CCRs), its By-Laws and in support of the general business and operation of the Association. GCHA will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Registered members of the GCHA also agree to not sell, share, or rent this information.
E-mail. The e-mail addresses of GCHA members who have registered and subscribe to our Web site, access the Association Newsletters, and receive GCHA system e-mails cannot be sold or rented to anyone, including member business partners, advertisers, realtors, and providers of insurance or other commercial services for profit or gain.
GCHA members who change or register their e-mail address via the CGHA Web site registration process will automatically be subscribed to GCHA’s e-mail system to receive Association announcements and information of an immediate, important nature.

Use of Cookies. Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. The use of cookies is an industry standard -- you'll find them at most major Web sites. At the time of signing in as a member of GCHA a cookie is set on your machine. This information simply identifies you as a member. The cookie facilitates you gaining access to protected areas of the site, pre-populates information on certain forms to save you from re-keying your information, and delivers custom content and images. The cookie is set for a 6-month period after which the cookie expires and you must identify yourself as a member through our sign in process.
Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, note that some parts of GCHAs Web site will not function properly without the use of cookies.
Use of Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses. An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers -- the big computers that "serve up" Web pages -- automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
GCHA collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of our site. When members request documents/pages from GCHA, our servers log the members' IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us.
Links to Other Sites. GCHA’s Web site includes links to other sites. These sites are beyond our control. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information. Please consult the privacy statement of individual sites that are linked to by GCHA for more specific information.
Security. GCHA tries to provide security on pages that request personal data. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, GCHA can't ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online documents/information and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our system.
The "Log Off" button (located on the right-hand side, under My Account) allows members who signed into the site to sign out. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information if your computer is accessible to others or if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet café.
Consent. By using GCHA’s Web site, you consent to the collection and use of this information by GCHA. Any changes to GCHA’s privacy policy will be posted in this area.
