Mission

The P&G Alumni Network is a nonprofit organization founded by alumni to help former P&G employees stay connected. Our mission is to share ideas, talents and resources with each other and with our communities. We will donate any profits to charitable groups around the world. We are not formally connected with the Procter & Gamble Company, but they are supportive of our efforts and we have obtained a trademark agreement to use the P&G name.

1. Personal Information Collected

The purpose of the P&G Alumni Network website is to permit Users to voluntarily provide information about themselves for the purposes of developing, maintaining and enhancing a network of contacts with other Procter & Gamble Alumni. To become a member of the P&G Alumni Network, you must have worked for Procter & Gamble at sometime during your career. This could include your entire career (and therefore you are a retiree of Procter & Gamble) or part of your career as long as you were directly on the Procter & Gamble payroll. If you were a contractor to Procter & Gamble, then are not eligible to join. If you worked for a company that Procter & Gamble acquired at some point in time, then you must have continued to work at that Company for a period of time after Procter & Gamble made the acquisition. Finally, current employees of Procter & Gamble are not eligible to join the P&G Alumni Network until they retire from the Company or leave the Company. The P&G Alumni Network reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to cancel the membership of any member who does not meet these qualifications. Finally, the P&G Alumni Network is not formally connected with the Procter & Gamble Company, but they are supportive of our efforts and we have obtained a trademark agreement to use the P&G name.
