GTCA is pleased to provide information to our website visitors about our online Privacy Policy. Your privacy is important to us, and our online Privacy Policy is intended to protect and secure any personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) you provide to GTCA online when you visit and use any of GTCA’s websites, services, social media channels, or mobile applications (collectively “Sites”).

This Privacy Policy will remain in full force and effect as long as you are a user of any of GTCA’s Sites.

Visitors may opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising through Google’s Ads Settings, or via the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, which can be found at

We also occasionally use a technology service called Hotjar on an as-needed basis, which uses cookies and other technologies to collect data regarding our users’ behavior and their devices (in particular, a device’s IP address [captured and stored only in anonymized form], device screen size, device type, browser information, geographic location (country only), and preferred language). Hotjar stores this information in an anonymized user profile. Neither Hotjar nor we will ever use this information to identify individual users or to match it with further data on an individual user.

Demographic and interest data gathered through Google Analytics Demographic and Interest Reporting is for analyzing trends in aggregate and is never combined with personally identifiable information.

We use Hotjar to optimize user experience and the service we provide. It helps us better understand our users’ experience (e.g., how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what they do and don’t like, etc.). This enables us to adapt and maintain our service by utilizing user feedback. You can opt out of the creation of a user profile, the storing of data about your usage of our site, and Hotjar’s use of tracking cookies on other websites by following this opt-out link.
