GISD Privacy & Refund Policy

The Genesee Intermediate School District (“GISD”) is committed to providing its students, families, and staff with innovative opportunities.  Furthering this commitment, the GISD will be offering a program to allow families and staff the ability to pay for certain products and programs by using a credit card via GISD's secured Genesee County Professional Learning Catalog website. 

GISD has made arrangements with a credit card service provider to provide this service.  No additional service charges will apply to payments processed online.  The user is in full control of the account and can make secured a payment at any time that is convenient. 

GISD will safeguard the confidentiality and security of the information it obtains.  This notice describes GISD’s privacy policy as it relates to the collection, access, protection, and disclosure of such information resulting from credit card transactions.

This privacy policy applies solely to information collected through GISD’s Genesee County Professional Learning Catalog website.
