Contact Us Policy
The contact us feature is provided as a way to communicate with members of the GSBA staff without the need for an email client, thus allowing you to submit “anonymous” feedback or comments.

It is possible that other GSBA staff will be able to view your message for purposes of quality control or validating that the product is behaving as expected. We will try to respect privacy whenever possible. Further, it is possible that email communications may not reach the recipient for various reasons, such as email client filters, and GSBA is not responsible if your message is not able to reach its designated recipient.
