Software Integrations

Where the GEMS – Grants Expertise Management System software is integrated with third party software, all data transfers will be one directional from GEMS into the third party software system. GEMS will only ‘push’ grants data into the third party software system. GEMS will not access any data in the third party software system beyond that which it is necessary to interrogate in order to establish a connection to the third party system, to effectively populate the third party system with GEMS data. In no instance will GEMS ‘pull’ data from the third party software system to store that data within GEMS or any other Strategic Grants system.

Accessing and Correcting Information

You can contact Strategic Grants at any time to access your personal information or for your personal information to be corrected or updated.
